@TheWildAndTheYoung: You joined this board in November 2012. I cannot honestly believe that in all this time, especially given your particular musical tastes, this is the first time that somebody has said a band you like sucks. Why the sand in the vagina about Switchfoot?
At any rate, check out the new Skull Fist -- melodic speed metal that I believe is right up your alley. I quite enjoy it.
I love inside jokes, I'd love to be a part of one some day.
