  1. 1. See below for explanation of ratings

    • 10/10 - One of your very favorite artists of all time.
    • 9/10 - Killer fucking band. Or artist.
    • 8/10 - Great sound, great songs, great albums.
    • 7/10 - Very good, but not quite great.
    • 6/10 - Pretty good. More than a few songs you like. You'd entertain the thought of seeing them live if they were in the area. Or still alive.
    • 5/10 - They're okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to listen to.
    • 4/10 - Meh. There may be a song or two, or an album that you dig, but you'd rather listen to other stuff.
    • 3/10 - Not very good. You will more likely than not turn the station if they come on the radio.
    • 2/10 - Not your cup of tea at all. Some people might like this, but you are not one of them.
    • 1/10 - Horrible in every way.
    • 0/10 - In the running for worst artist/musician of all time. You would rather take a cheese grater to your face than listen to this.

Never really listened to them. The Howard guy can sing when he wants to it seems like. But they're a perfect example of why I don't like where Metal music went, that screaming they do just sounds terrible, I prefer actual singing.

I'll give them a 5 because the screaming sucks, but when Howard wants to belt it out he can.

1000000000000000/10 .. okay 10/10 My most favorite band ever in the whole world. Love every single song, album, everything made by them. Times of Grace too. Got tons of merch, even a guitar signed by Jesse. Melodic metalcore at its best! ❤️ I've listened to them since the beginning with Rise Inside one of the first songs I heard when it was Jesse and Adam. Then Howard came and brought them to the mainstream and then Jesse came back and brought something back even more. Just an amazing history. I know a lot of people don't like unclean vocals, but the lyrics in the music are so emotional, meaningful and straight to the heart. I feel it all.

I was suppose to go see them for the 6th time on march 20th, but it got postponed obviously.

This isn't terrible, but I have absolutely no affection for this kind of electric guitars and double kick drum masturbation. It sounds very generic, but I can tell why you'd probably like it if you're into this kind of stuff and not too snooty about the pop'ish production.

4/10 based on the rather subjective approach of the rating descriptions
