Fall of Troy

Holy shit, this trio thinks it's a good idea to imitate Steve Vai guitarisms while alternating death metal guttural grunting with Darkness-esque glam crooning in an extreme rendition of the always-questionable screamo MO. All the songs on their Doppelganger disc seem to be about Michael Jackson in the process of molesting children. (Except the one called "Tom Waits" -- not sure what that's about...Maybe some guy named Tom who's in the process of waiting for Michael Jackson to finish molesting a child?) Okay, I've never said this before, but I can't imagine anyone liking this. Which probably just indicates the limits of my imagination.
