After listening to the whole thing, those are the best three songs on the album and Begging For Mercy is really the only one that is "metal". Matt Tuck is a talented singer but he is not meant for a metal band at all. Shame on them for saying this was not going to have any ballads (it does) and it was going to be more classic metal.

You actually believed something that they said? These are the same guys that said Scream Aim Fire was going to be a pure thrash album, and they put fucking Forever and Always on there.

I like the poison by these guys, I think because they weren't saying its a 'thrash' or 'classic rock' -esque album, they just said it was what it what was, a pretty good slice of metalcore.

However, I have found in recent times, they are trying to shake this whole metalcore label, by throwing any label they can on their music, when really, at least to me, they're sounding more and more like Funeral For A Friend, which are neither thrash nor classic rock, more metalcore/hardcore type stuff.

I have yet to give the album a good listen, but from what I have heard they aren't pushing themselves with their music enough, least not in the right direction. Then again, their tours for this album will more than likely all sell out, and, if they do fall from grace, it probably wont matter to their wallets anyway.
