You should really give them more of a listen - they are pretty riffalicious in places. Not anywhere near as bad as most other metalcore - you might even like it. Check out "This Time Was Mine" from "III: In the Eyes of Fire"...the opening riff and chorus riff are pretty badass.)
I did have higher than normal hopes last time I saw them (opening for Testament) because I had heard that their newest album was good, but it's still breakdown-laden generic stuff. And their guitar player is the king of the douches.

It should be noted that once I see the concerts currently on my schedule, Between the Buried and Me I will have also seen four times.
Oh, and HOPEFULLY by the end of next summer Iron Maiden will also be four.

They do have breakdowns in their songs, but unlike most metalcore - and nearly all deathcore - bands, they know how and when to use them, so this is not a deterrent for me. I like breakdowns when they are used sparingly and in the right places.

Like I said, do yourself a favor and listen to "This Time Was Mine" from "III: In the Eyes of Fire" - it will most assuredly make you smile. No breakdowns and sick riffs abound. It really is good. You may still end up not liking Unearth, but I'll bet you'll like at least this one song.
