Totally agree with you Zerkz. Redemption sucks balls. I think this is the closest Shadows Fall has come to selling out. I compare that song to All That Remains' Two Weeks or Forever in your Hands. I think those two songs ruined ATR, and turned them into a sell out radio rock band. This Darkened Heart and Fall of Ideals are AMAZING and Overcome and For We Are Many are decent albums at best with a lot of crappy songs. I'm glad Shadows Fall didn't follow the direction of Redemption and decided to release arguably their best album in Retribution.

Except ATR doesn't get played on the radio...

Having become of fan of Shadows Fall with the War Within album, I find most of their earlier songs unlistenable. Same with ATR. Too "raw" (not a good thing in this case) and it just sounds boring to me. Same old death metal. I think the melody, especially in the vocals department for both bands, is a good thing. Their new albums aren't my favorite, but they aren't an indication of "selling out". That would infer some sort of increased popularity as a result of changing their sound, and I'm not quite sure that has happened.

ATR did get 'Two Weeks' played on the radio a bit so it got them more noticed but it didn't get them gold or platinum sales. Which is what a once underground metal band needs to achieve in order for me to even start to consider them 'sellouts' of any kind. But then there's nothing wrong with trying a more appealing sound in an attempt to make more money at the job you do

Shadows Fall biggest peak in popularity was for TWW when they had a spot on Ozzfest while touring to support that album. I believe they opened the mainstage that year. I head that album has sold like 300,000 copies for them. Which is pretty good considering they've never gotten any radio play at all. TOL didn't sell that great and neither did Retribution. I don't think they've ever come close to selling out. I'm not sure if having the direct support slot when they toured with 5FDP last year helped them at all? We've gotta wait for their next album to come out to see if that gained them a bigger following or not.

TWW sold tons because of Guitar Hero 2.

Threads of Life was just mediocre for me.

I've seen ATR quite a few times, and it is obvious that they are trying to garner a more mainstream audience, while trying to keep some of the old folks. MANY of the songs on their last two new albums have growly/core vocals underneath the clean vocals. Still a good life band though, if they keep some of their old shit in the set.
