When I first got this CD I thought it was just the greatest. However, it didn't take long to realize that the band lacked vocal talent and melody. Sure, the screaming and down-tuned, distorted guitar is interesting in the beginning, but it gets tiresome and repetitive. For me, it became one of those CDs you pop in every 3 weeks or so for about 5-10 min. Also, I think the whole costume thing is a cheap gimmick, and their "Wait and Bleed" video was pretty lame.
