    I say nay. Don't care for them or their sound.

    I only heard one track off of the newest album though, and they ripped off Deicide's Lunatic of God's Creation in the opening riff, and they didn't do it very well either. Glen Benton has a lovely urethra and all, but ripping off Deicide?

    Nay, mostly. They do have a few catchy songs, but they can't even come close to holding my attention for a whole record. The new record is extremely boring in most parts imo

    I like there sound, there lead guitar player is actually a good musician. There 1st album was good and then Art of Balance only had a few songs i liked. But there new ablum "The War Within" actually sounds like a good album to me *after listening to The Power of I and I. It is suppose to be a lot heavier then there last album. I am impressed with the guitar work. Other then that. they are a band i can only listen to one in a while.... how bout i give them a yanah....??? :yell:

    I absolutely agree. That songs the only reason I didn't throw my Art of Balance CD in the trash.

    probably one of the most over rated bands in today's underground scene.

    I hate how crap bands like this get recognized and praised by kids everywhere when there are so many better metal bands out there.

    Yay and nay. I liked Of One Blood, and The Art of Balance has some good songs(A Fire In Babylon). I like the new song, and I don't mind the hardcore elements. The clean vocals fucking suck, though.

    The only cd i have heard from these guys is their newest release. Kind of thrashy, I don't know if the rest of their music is. But I say yay...I dug the cd.

    They're ok. I've seen them live but I was there for Killswitch and God Forbid. I like a couple of songs of Art of Balance but the main reason I'm replying is what the feck is Mallcore?! Why do people have to make up stupid genres just cos they don't like particular bands?

    Mallcore isn't a genre. It's a term for anything that's mainstream and sucks. It's used by metalheads (commonly synonomously called "elitists", by misinformed shallow people) to describe anything that's ALMOST metal, but falls flat on its face. Depending on who you ask, the term's definition will vary.

    The first definition here is a pretty good one.

    That was a pretty good definition. I've heard some people call Rage Against the Machine mallcore, but they are really just rap-rock.
