PIERCE THE VEIL "collide with the sky"
never heard of these guys and am always willing to listen to unknown artists, most times
i find them crap,others, i find pretty darn good...unfortunately this one is "crap!"...
sort of a loose cross between Emo(evanescence/good charlotte) and that horrible screamy
undecipherable Sytem Of A Down type growly vocals...
didnt find one solitary track that i liked...bit of the songs were ok, until they started them
angry growls...sorry, that just aint singing to me,neither do i find it to be musical!
sorry, cant find another proffessional review to add to mine,but you'll find their "bio"

The heart of San Diego emo-inflected post-hardcore outfit Pierce the Veil
lies in two brothers, vocalist/guitarist Victor Fuentes
and drummer Mike Fuentes
, who first started playing together as the band Before Today
while students in high school. The two formed the group in December of 1998 and it was soon turned into a quintet by guitarist Joe Tancil
and bassist Mitchell Ballatore
. Before Today
played as a unit for several years, and after signing to Equal Vision Records, released the album A Celebration of an Ending
in September 2004. In time, Tancil
quit the band, leaving Victor
to start over and rebuild. In the fall of 2006, they switched their name to Pierce the Veil
, which was the name of a track on the previous Before Today
album, and brought on board bassist Jaime Preciado
and guitarist Tony Perry
. The brothers wrote Pierce the Veil
's debut album, A Flair for the Dramatic
, in their San Diego home studio, and later recorded it up in Seattle with producer Casey Bates
(Gatsbys American Dream
, Fear Before the March of Flames
). Their original affiliation with Equal Vision continued, and in early summer 2007, A Flair for the Dramatic
appeared via the Albany-based label. The fall was then spent on opening dates for rockers From First to Last
