    Atreyu

    Anyone here like them? At first I hated them, but then they really grew on me, and now they are one of my favorite bands. My Favorite song by them is The Crimson. How about some song recommendations and such?

    Atreyu are one of my favourite bands. Song recomendations, I'd have to say: Lipgloss and Black, Ain't Love Grand, Bleeding Mascara, The Rememberance Ballad.


    I've also been lucky enough to see them live, twice and meet Marc and Alex, really cool guys and they put on such an energic show, definantly worth seeing.

    I love bleeding mascara, its such an awesome song.

    I have a question, I saw a live video of them, and the singer was wearing like a backback, and they were all wearing orange jumpsuits. Why do they do this?

    I dunno.

    They're one of those bands which I only like their music. That's it. But you have balls to make a topic about Atreyu, so good for you.

    There's a decent portion of the members here (read: almost all the members here) who absolutely hate Atreyu, and will generally rip them apart any time they're mentioned in any thread. Devoting an entire thread to them is like putting them on a firing range.

    At any rate, I don't like them anymore. The Curse was brilliant, but their latest CD was awful, and I've heard they're diminishing when they perform live (as in they're not sounding so good anymore).

    I love Right Side Of The Bed, and The Crimson is a fairly good track as well. Apart from that, I haven't checked out too much of their music, probably because they're so criticised it seems like a waste of time. But I like what i've heard so far anyway.

    It's a pretty great band. I listened to them quite a lot for some time, but I got tired of their last album real fast.

    cliche (in a bad way), cheesy and ugly.

    three bad combinations for this band. another reason why i don't really like the metalcore genre (the only band i respect is etid).

    if you want to listen to what atreyu tries to pull off, but better, listen to botch.

    no offense for people who like them.

    btw: they're guitarists aren't that great to tell you the truth. probably one of the most over-rated bunch of musicians ever.

    Lot's of people like them. I had a run with them when their new album came out, which I enjoyed, but I stopped listening to them after that. I haven't really picked up again.

    I love The Crimson. But I recommend This Flesh A Tomb. That's another good one.

    I actually don't think Brandon is that bad a drummer. He's actually decently good I think. But you're right: their guitarists are highly overrated.

    I'm not much of a fan of Atreyu, mainly because of the vocals. The drummer should sing the whole way through though, he's cool I like Lip Gloss and Black, the chorus is awesome.

    I really like Screaming music, So I like the screaming parts more than the actually singing

    I love Atreyu, especially the song 'Our Sick Story (thus far)'

    the fat guy behind the kit is okay, not great, but he's decent. he can do something more then kick snare kick snare kick snare.

    and i can named 101 better "screamers" then alex varfatass.

    Their guitar is very, very simplistic. The only time they shined was on The Curse. My buddy Mark can play all their songs and he's only been playing guitar for about two years, and he rarely practices all that much.

    Ya I know its easy, I play guitar and find it easy, but I think it works for their songs very well.
