And on the topic of wasted potential, and I don't care how much hate I might get, I honestly feel that Whitechapel would be a decent band if it weren't for the god-awful breakdowns. I can't lie, I genuinely like some of the non-core parts in their songs, but they keep managing to kill any sort of joy I have listening to them with the breakdowns.
Also, as we all know, their fans are, for the most part, gaytarded, which I believe hurts their reputation more than anything in the metal community, and that goes for other decent/potentionally good deathcore bands as well.
Scream Aim Fire had some good tracks but also some awful ones. Waking the Demon, Eye of the Storm, Take It On Me, and Ashes of the Innocent were all awesome. the rest of the album was shit or mediocre.
and no one should ever feel bad for liking a deathcore band thinking they may lose metal credibility. that is fucking lame. and yeah Whitechapel is a great band but they overdo the breakdowns sometimes. i like some breakdowns but when it's breakdown after breakdown it gets old. listen to Father of Lies though that's probably their best song.
