38 - Mixed Metaphorical Arts (Ain't Love Grand & On Wings of Lead)

Today we return to the metalcore/fashioncore/brocore scene of the early 2000's with Atreyu's Ain't Love Grand and Bleeding Through's On Wings of Lead. We remember the strange phenomenon of tough guys in eyeliner and bleach-streaked mohawks busting MMA moves and singing melodramatic lyrics about being drowned in blood by ex-girlfriends.

We also discuss merch-buying protocol, listening to these bands while far superior bands were playing at the same venues, how terrifying a mosh pit was to a fourteen year-old first timer, and getting a snarky email from Jacob Bannon of Converge.  

Good bands discussed on this episode: Converge, Integrity, Disembodied, Cave-In, and many more
