I’m one of the folks who loved Atreyu back in the day, but I fell out of touch with them after The Curse. Well, when the band made a comeback and released their latest album Long Live, I decided to check it out and I am proud to say that I loved the album. It’s a strong collection of tracks that has a little new and a little old Atreyu. Well, one of the slower songs on the album “Do You Know Who You Are?” now has an accompanying music video and it’s pretty cool. Check out the video below. Continue reading
LOLOLOLOLOLOL The title says it fucking all…. Former Atreyu guitarist Travis Miguel has officially come out of retirement and joined Trapt! Now I know Atreyu was never a good band or anything, but joining Trapt is a new low. I guess I don’t really give a shit but I know there has to be some closet Atreyu fan out there wanting to punch himself in the dick (and not just for having shitty taste in music).
All I’m gonna say is that I guess Atreyu broke up because Travis was too HEADSTRONG!!!

Not too long ago I posted about how Atreyu and Bleeding Through members formed a new band called I Am War. Well, now Bleeding Through have posted the first single from their forthcoming record The Great Fire. The single is titled “Faith In Fire” and it’s a pretty sweet metalcore track. I haven’t listened to much metalcore over the last few years, but this track is pretty good. I’m interested to see how the rest of the album will play out. Check out the track below. The Great Fire is set for release on January 31st via Rise Records. Check out the track list for the album after the jump.
When I first heard that Atreyu vocalist Alex Varkatzas and Bleeding Through vocalist Brandan Schieppati had teamed up for a new project, I was intrigued. I grew out of listening to Atreyu many, many years ago but I still quite enjoy Bleeding Through’s older material. I always thought they were a pretty solid metalcore band and I had the opportunity to see them live a few years back and meet Brandon briefly.
I Am War is.. Interesting, I suppose. To today’s standards of music this is just mediocre metalcore, but I guess it’s the best thing Alex has done in years, so that’s a plus I guess. Check out a track below. The band just signed to Razor & Tie with plans to release their debut in the spring.
