I'm just curious, is this band for real? I really don't like to mock other peoples efforts, but I'm having a hard time believing this band is for real. Do they really think they will make it big by implementing every metal cliche to a fault? If they're just doing this for fun, then all the power to them.

The reason why I even bother to bring this up is because the metal scene is getting over-saturated with such acts. It is seriously boring me to tears.

Man that bridge part was one of the more disturbing things I've heard.

I think that was real too.

I would say they put too much effort into the vid for it not to be serious.

And that is definitely the floor of a toilet in't it ? Doesn't look hygienic at all.

Hmmmmmm....

I actually think they're serious, but not something I'd listen to at all..
But hey, at least they got a video out and that's more than some of us smile.gif

I am sure they are serious about what they do... but it is a thin line between cool and funny and some bands just dont get it right.... I really like metal - I like old school metal with typical posing but that it too much....
who signs these bands??

In my opinion Attack, Attack is a great sounding band. This video may not be the coolest, but these dudes sound tighter than a bus crammed full of fat people smile.gif

I think they are for real! Why not! It is a new thing in metal LOL! Get a fat chick to sing, put pasta on her had and make a video in your garage! Oh yeah also use a lot of sepia effects to make it more dramatic!

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.
