WHILE I BREATH, I HOPE: Long Live the King: CD

The name scared me off from the start. Phrases that evoke nothing. This style of music has become extremely overdone, not that its not decent, but just uninspired. Emo-core, wanna-be Hot Water Music style stuff. Punk rock is about being different. Two part vocal harmonies that lean towards pseudo-screams with down beat drums and dragging guitar and bass melodies. HWM broke up recently but I don’t think the world needs another copy of the original. Ho-hum.
