Hello, Billy Talent fans. Billy Talent is releasing a new record out on June 27th. The album will be originally titled: Billy Talent II. The album should be good considering the last album [I thought] was superb and also based on the music already heard: www.myspace.com/billytalent. Feel free to discuss.

I like 'em very much. the single's a great song. I loved their last album in it's entirety. I've never heard of any band opposing the canadian government. Unless I've got my song-meaning skills all fucked up.

I figured they would be quite more popular there than in the U.S. It just seems like the area I'm in is the only place that has heard of them. Would you think the Billy Talent/Canada connection is as big as... let's say the Green Day/United States one?

Edit: Green Day is a little more international... maybe Fall Out Boy or.... Nirvana?

well... i don't think any one in the rock/punk world is as big as greenday right now, but whene there cd was relesed they where like the biggist punk band in canada, then AI blow up and billy talent and greenday where like the most populer bands in Canada, and they won a bunch of canadien awards, if I remember correctly they got best band of the year for 2003 or 2004. Right now there new single is in high rotation. I'm not sure if it will be as big as there last cd but you never know. But ya they where bigger then fall out boy are now. I always assumed that Billy Talent was just as big in the Us guess i was wrong.

Well, the record store is about 5 miles away. I rode my bike there with some friends, also stopping at an A&W. When I arrived the record store, a guy walked out with the new Billy Talent CD. When I asked for it, the lady at the counter said she was sold out and we looked all around the store for it. We finally found it after it being behind a Bad Relgion CD. When I started to leave, it started raining. After the next few blocks, it was a torrential downpour the rest of the way home.

Oh, the things I do for Billy Talent. I could have just kept the illegally downloaded music.

By the way, how many people have picked up Watoosh! when Billy Talent went by Pezz (It is like Manic Subsidal and The Offspring, except Pezz actually recorded an album)? I noticed that early Billy Talent was actually ska! The songs aren't exactly amazing on that album, and would be the first Billy Talent songs that are near-not-good. Then again, it isn't really Billy Talent.

I remember reading about Billy Talent's lyrics. I heard "Devil In A Midnight Mass" was about a priest who sexually abused children. If you read the lyrics, it makes a whole lot of sense. Same thing with "Standing in the Rain" being about a prostitute.


One thing Kowalewicz and the band havenít changed is their deft lyrical depiction of personal experiences and keen observations. The blistering opener ďDevil in a Midnight MassĒ shows how Kowalewicz can take an issue and talk about it in a personal way.

ďItís from a story I read about a priest in Boston who had been arrested for child abuse and the church kept moving him from parish to parish,Ē says Kowalewicz. ďThe Supreme Court tried and convicted him of molesting 150 kids over a 30 year span and while he was serving his sentence another inmate broke into his cell and murdered him. I stumble upon these stories, they donít necessarily have to be directly personal but itís things like this that move me. Iím a big advocate for childrenís rights and this song looks at sexual abuse. Itís not against the church or anything, itís more about that individual betrayal between adult and child. I donít have the answers but hopefully if I sing about a certain issue it will get people talking about it.Ē

08-03-2006, 12:48 PM
Yeah, "Standing in the Rain" was pretty obvious. Is "Pins and Needles" similar to it?

I also just recently noticed that "River Below" is about a crazy guy who builds bombs.

The music video gave "River Below" away. And no, "Pins and Needles" is about a guy who loves this girl, but doesn't know why. She does all these things to him and he just keeps loving her. When he finally dumps her, he regrets it.

In early 2004, the first song I heard from them was "Prisoners of Today" on the radio, but I didn't catch the band who played it. Then I heard "River Below" on the radio, found out it was by Billy Talent, and went out and bought the album. It was just a bonus that "Prisoners of Today" was featured on it.

I was just going to bump this thread. The new "Red Flag" video is coming soon and it looks like it is going to be pretty sweet.

This is still true, and at this moment, I am in love with this album. So I wouldn't be surprised, because I will be listening to this album a lot more in the next year, if I end up buying some rare Spanish signed platinum record of Billy Talent II.

When I had Billy Talent, I could wait for the new album. I was happy with what I got. Billy Talent II came three years afterwards but it didn't seem that long. If Billy Talent III (hoping the name will carry on) came out 10 years from now, I'd just be listening to II thinking "Already?"

Talk about a sophomore slump.

08-27-2006, 06:42 PM
I decided to review my favorite album of all-time song by song. Overall, I'd rate it a 1979/100. This is just my opinion on how I like the songs, if you disagree, that's okay. I'd also like to know how the general public likes each song.


1) "Devil In A Midnight Mass" 96/100

A fast, nice start for the greatest album ever made. Once you hear Ben Kowalewicz's scream, you won't turn your CD player off until "Burn The Evidence" ends. The song is about a priest who sexually abused children... sweet! It also has one of the best outros out there with the "whisper, whisper" thing that can send a good shiver down your spine.

2) "Red Flag" 95/100

Probably the most popular song off the album, "Red Flag" is a very good addition. With an ultra catchy chorus, this track will not dissapoint. The only problem that song could have is that the rest of the songs off Billy Talent II are more complex, if that's the proper word. Still, that isn't going to hold "Red Flag" back from being one of the powerhouses of II even with all of your friends repeating this anthem.

3) "This Suffering" 98/100

"This Suffering" is one of my favorite tracks (along with 1,2, and 4-13). This proves that Billy Talent's back-up vocals from guitarist Ian D'Sa and bassist Jon Gallant can really do something to a song. The whole album actually makes good use of it. Another thing you'll notice is that this is one of Ben Kowalewicz's first attempts to stop being the "screaming dude" and actually start singing. This song isn't too fast or too slow, but has a perfect tempo to listen at any occasion.

4) "Worker Bees" 94/100

The chants of "March on, worker bees!" are one of the first things you hear besides Jon Gallant's bass. There were some things that stood out about this song, but when I was about to list them, I realized was naming every part of "Worker Bees". This one was hard to review, and much easier to sum up with a listen of the actual music.

5) "Pins And Needles" 100/100

Yes! As if I couldn't get any happier (I really couldn't), Billy Talent rewarded me with the fifth track, "Pins and Needles". This song seems very solemn. It is one of those "buzz ballads", except actually perfect. I love it; It is right after that "How did I ever let you go?", hearing "I'm walking on Pins and Needles", which sends some kind of wave through my body that I am so obsessed with. Ben Kowalewicz hits that relaxed harmonic singing that he was aiming for here in this amazing three minutes and eleven seconds of heaven.

6) "Fallen Leaves" 100/100

Yes (again)! "Fallen Leaves" is the "This Is How It Goes" of Billy Talent II (that song is my favorite from their self-titled debut). This is headbanging, alive, crazy, loud, fast music right here. It is about the troubles of drugs. There are so many moments of this song that I love including the little lead-in to the chorus ("I swear to God this..." etc.) and "I left my best friends, or did they just leave me?". Billy Talent at some of its finest right here.

7) "Where Is The Line" 94/100

What do you get when you cross a Canadian rock group and urban hipsters? If you answered "Where Is The Line", you would be correct. The chorus isn't the best thing Billy Talent brought to the table before but the music during their versus is just plain awesome. The whole song I catch myself "boppin'" my head up and down and tapping my foot constantly thoroughout the song. A delightful track that I enjoy to listen to.

8) "Covered In Cowardice" 95/100

If there is one thing I was allowed to mention in the review of this track, it would be the sound of the riffs of the guitars. "Covered In Cowardice" contains some of the famous Kowalewicz yells and the new Kowalewicz singing. The meaning of the song involves people who don't stand by their convictions. I don't have too much to say about this song except listen to it. Now.

9) "Surrender" 99/100

The prime example of how Billy Talent II differs from Billy Talent is "Surrender". This song is just so magnificent. I managed to memorize every single lyric in this song. Sure, it is on the slow side, but that is what this album needed. Boy, I love Billy Talent. If I ever got the chance to make love to Billy Talent, it would be to this song.

10) "The Navy Song" 95/100

"The Navy Song" or as some call it, "In The Fall", is a great song. It took time to grow on me, as did my friend. When I listen to this track, I can feel the splashes from the music, unless I just peed my pants because this song is so good. "I gave my life to save her" and soon after makes me think of something an orchestra or play would perform.

11) "Perfect World" 99/100

Ahh, good ol' Billy Talent's back, baby. "In a perfect world, your face would not exist" remains to be some of my favorite lyrics. The heavier-like song to have a seizure to is "Perfect World". One of the defining moments of the whole album lies in this song: "Control! Alt, Deleted! Reset my memory!" If you like even one other song by Billy Talent, you'd fall in love with this song.

12) "Sympathy" 94/100

More chanting. More foot-tapping. More Billy Talent. More happiness. This is "Sympathy". Nothing too impressive from the likes of Billy Talent, but still not anything to even come close for anyone to dislike. Still, just more the reason to adore Billy Talent and to just listen to their music yourself.

13) "Burn The Evidence" 96/100

A wonderful way to end the album, if I say so myself. "Burn The Evidence" fits the setting of being the last track of a complete masterpiece. What I like about this song is that you can look at it from so many different perspectives as if Kowalewicz is depressed, rejoicing, or angry. No matter how you look at it, "Burn The Evidence" is a great song all the way around and you couldn't have asked for a better closer.

0r4ng3
08-27-2006, 08:56 PM
The only songs that I think are "less than perfect" (in my own opinion, of course) are Covered in Cowardice, Sympathy, and Burn the Evidence. Perhaps I just need to listen to them more. After all, I didn't like This Suffering or Fallen Leaves right away.

Well there isn't anything wrong with any of the songs. "Burn The Evidence" was one of the first songs I liked, "Covered In Cowardice" I recently learned to like, and I'm working on "Sympathy", the only one that I don't think is completely awesome.

Alright, so I think I'm going (I don't see why I wouldn't be) to the November 15th show this fall to see Billy Talent. They're not headlining, though. That's Rise Against's and Thursday's job. I've never been to a concert before (Yeah, I know) and I don't want this whole headlining interfering with Billy Talent's concert time. I also want to go to see Rise Against, but I've never heard a Thursday song before or even heard of another side-band, Circa Survive.

So I guess my questions are: does Billy Talent put up good shows, does Rise Against put up good shows, does Thursday make even good music, and does Circa Survice make even good music. Will these be a good concert?

Yes, yes, no, not sure. Most likely.

Thanks. I figured Billy Talent would, and wasn't too sure on Rise Against. I listened to a couple Thursday songs on their MySpace, and it sounded like noise. Just noise. I'm also listening to some Circa Survive songs on their MySpace. Not bad music, it is very experimental/indie and on the slow side, but the lead singer's voice is horrible.

Anyone else considering on going to this show? (not the Detroit one exactly)

So I guess my questions are: does Billy Talent put up good shows, does Rise Against put up good shows, does Thursday make even good music, and does Circa Survice make even good music. Will these be a good concert?

Billy Tallent and Rise Against are quite good live, lots of energey. Thursday isn't really my thing, but i saw them live during the 2004 Warped Tour, and they put on a somewhat entertaining set.

In March 2006, he wrote a letter to the bands' fans in which he told them that he had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, [1]. The Billy Talent song This Is How It Goes is written about Solowoniuk's battle with the illness. He had kept it secret in an attempt to avoid unwanted pity, but decided to reveal his condition after discovering some MS cases are diagnosed as early as three years of age. Since then Aaron has become an advocate for finding a cure for MS. For now, Aaron continues to tour with Billy Talent promoting Billy Talent II.

Note to self: Bring "get well soon" card to concert. I feel like a failed fan not already knowing about this or noticing that "This Is How It Goes" had anything to do with this.


Multiple sclerosis (abbreviated MS, also known as disseminated sclerosis) is a chronic, inflammatory disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). MS can cause a variety of symptoms, including changes in sensation, visual problems, muscle weakness, depression, difficulties with coordination and speech, severe fatigue, and pain. Although many patients lead full and rewarding lives, MS can cause impaired mobility and disability in the more severe cases.

It is a good thing it isn't too life threatening.

I bought this album a few months ago for like 2 or 3 bucks. I really, really love "devil in a midnight mass". I've not listened to it a whole lot (though I really do like it), so I can't comment on each song... but I remember really liking the first three songs a lot.

I never liked "try honesty" or "beach balls", so I was skeptical about buying this album... but I decided that, for $3, it was worth it.

The whole concert was one of my favorite experiences ever. Getting there, purchasing a couple t-shirts, finding my seats, and seeing the huge Billy Talent II flag was awesome. The whole concert started out with the lights going from dim to completely dark, Billy Talent walked on stage, stopped, and then you just heard the intro to "Devil In A Midnight Mass". The first scream in that song was one of the best moments the whole concert. Not to mention the mosh pits during the "whisper, whisper" part. That was my favorite Billy Talent song live.

After that, Ben threw his shirt off and asked how many Candadiens we had, about 40% of the people there were Canadian fans. Plus, I saw more Billy Talent shirts than Thursday and Circa Survive combined. "This Suffering" was played afterwards, which was very good, but the lowest performance compared to the other Billy Talent songs they played. "Line and Sinker" was after that and that was a really good performance.

Next, Ben brought up how much he loves women. "I love women more than anything in the world. There's this one girl that holds a special place inside me. I love her more than anything else in the world. I wrote a song about that girl. Here's song to that fucking bitch." So then, "The Ex" was played very well.

"Red Flag", "Fallen Leaves", and "River Below" were after that, and were some of my favorites. The crowd seemed to know the lyrics to these songs more than anything else.

After they announced the order of the lineup, Ben said they were going to go "way back", and "Try Honesty" was played. That was one of the better songs, also. I was a little dissapointed only 8 songs were played in a 35 minute period, and the songs were a little too predictable, but it was a very good show, none the less.

That's the Billy Talent part of it, if you want to hear about the rest of the show with Circa Survive, Thursday, and Rise Against, I'm going to edit my post with a link to it soon.

I'm going to give a brief summary of the rest of the concert. Circa Survive sucked. Hard.

Rise Against the best of all of them, by far, to keep things simple.

After posting a full review of Billy Talent II (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showpost.php?p=880555&postcount=64), I decided to review the self-titled debut that started it all. Overall, I'd give Billy Talent a 94/100. These rating aren't fair, as I'm a huge Billy Talent fan.

1) "This Is How It Goes" 100/100

What a way to start off an album. The intro is amazing and it just continues all the way until the finish. Sure, there's lots of screaming, but this is the greatest screaming I've ever heard. This song must be jaw-dropping live. God, I'd love to chant "This is! How it! It goes!" with Billy Talent.

2) "Living In The Shadows" 90/00

Often overlooked and living in the shadows (LOL!), this track doesn't get too much attention. I highly doubt this is an album favorite, but can anyone really turn it off and say it's bad? It has no super high points or anything, but I like it.

3) "Try Honesty" 96/100

I used to always skip this track so I could go to "Line and Sinker". When I actually took the time to actually listen to the whole song, I was astounded. It's fast and it's hard not to like. It isn't that badly written, either.

4) "Line and Sinker" 93/100

Popularized from the movie Grind, "Line and Sinker" didn't a need a music video or airplay to be known. It isn't all that it is made to be, it can get repetetive, and the screaming is actually annoying. With "Line And Sinker", I don't seem to care. It's actually really catchy and I always want to scream "What you see is what you get!" at the top of my lungs everytime it comes on.

5) "Lies" 93/100

We were just talking about repetetive, right? The chorus of "Lies" sounds like it could come out of a 10-years-old-girl's singing in the shower. However, it's everything that's NOT the chorus that makes this song what it is. Not exactly the words, but the singing of the lyrics and the way everything is executed so precisely.

6) "The Ex" 95/100

To start if off, I love the backing "Ohh"s immediately before the chorus. It's like a happy "f**k you" right to an ex-girlfriend's face. Ben talks pretty fast in this one, and he uses the same lines a couple times so you can memorize them easily. Sounds good to me.

7) "River Below" 97/100

Something made me dislike this song after a first listening. Then again, that was when I listened to Yellowcard and the such. If there is one song that Billy Talent fans know the words to, it's this one. It takes a while to realize that it's about some guy that's trying to build a bomb, but the fantasmic music takes over. The best sounding part of the song is probably the "I'm sick and, I'm twisted. I'm broken, you can't fix it."

8) "Standing In The Rain" 96/100

It's a song, about a prostitute! This is the tap-your-foot kind of music I love. The lyrics make sense, and the music is actually great. I can't pick one near bad part of this song. I get goosebumps whenever I hear "Standing in the rain." repeated three times.

9) "Cut The Curtains" 98/100

Deep guitars, yes, yes, yes. This whole song is pure awesomeness. Did I mention the greatest outro in any song in the world? It's that fading, you think it's over, and it explodes the chorus right back in your ears. I love, love, love this one.

10) "Prisoners of Today" 100/100

I remember, years ago, I heard one of the greatest songs, ever. Following the song, the radio DJ said "That was 'Prisoners of Today' by new Canadian band, Billy Talent". I bought this CD so fast. If it wasn't for this song, I might not have ever been a Billy Talent fan. The guitars, the vocals, the lyrics, the everything about this song is nothing short from perfect.

11) "Nothing To Lose" 91/100

Taking a slower step, Billy Talent made this song about a boy who was bullied and later commited suicide. Tragic, eh? This might have the best lyrics of the whole album, and you can hear and understand the words just fine. The main flaw is, this song never really took me by attention. If it wasn't for the lyrics and the nice experiments Billy Talent throws in this song, I'd shut it off every time it came on.

12) "Voices of Violence" 93/100

Not giving you a chance to brace yourself, "Voices of Violence" wasn't that bad of a choice to end this album with. This song is very easy to recognize, but yet compared to some of the songs earlier in the album, you wonder why this wasn't crushed from the other spotlight songs. It probably doesn't seem that good because you know no other songs remain.

I can see your point here, the lead vocals could probably be seen as pretty annoying to a lot of people. The backing vocals aren't high-pitched though.

I don't pay attention to lyrics that much at all, but still don't see anything so God awful about them. Meh, the lines you picked out from that ONE song were kind of corny, but they sure as hell aren't "milk-out-my-nose humorously horrible".

Mind you, I've only listened to Billy Talent II; I have the other album but haven't given it a listen yet. I really love BT2, even though I can't make it past "Where is the Line" because I really hate that song. The only song I listened to past that one is "Sympathy", which I also love.

I've been listening to this band a lot lately, and the songs are so fucking amazing that I can't choose a consistent favorite. First it was "Red Flag", then "This Suffering", then "Fallen Leaves", then "Worker Bees", then "Devil in a Midnight Mass", now it's "This Suffering" again. Or maybe it's "Worker Bees".

I'd never heard of Billy Talent until you and Jesse kept talking about them so much. I don't watch TV and haven't been able to play as many video games, so all I knew was their name. But holy god, they're goooood.

People know Billy Talent here because we're so close to Canada. Our radio stations are part Ontario, part Detroit. You're still very lucky to hear Billy Talent on the radio, but I've heard "Try Honesty" once or twice back in 2003. They played "Prisoners of Today" once too, that's how I got into Billy Talent. I've never heard them on the radio since, but there are about ten other people I know that have "Red Flag" and "River Below" on their iPods.

Edit: Pezz songs are up above.

So on the official billy talent website, they have a player that plays both of their cd's.

I've literally spent an hour or two just listening through them, and I'm actually going to have to say that I like their first CD much more. On the second CD there are some very good songs (I like Red Flag, DIAMM, Burn The Evidence and I absolutely love Fallen Leaves) but there are also many songs that bore or annoy me somewhat. (Where is the Line, Worker Bees, The Navy Song)
After listening to the first Cd, I have found no flaws whatsoever. I realize this is not a popular opinion on this forum, but eh.

My favorite songs are Fallen Leaves, This Is How It Goes (or at least I think - see below), and Voices of Violence.

Edit: Alright I'm very confused. This song (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=115457211) is my favorite by them. And I assumed from the lyrics that it is This Is How It Goes. But when I went to the official site, they have a different song (version?) of it.
Anyway, where is this song from? It's the best song they have, in my opinion.

0r4ng3
12-02-2006, 09:24 PM
It sounds like a demo (or a cover) of This is How It Goes. Perhaps it's a Pezz song that they eventually changed into it. It sounds a lot like Pezz.

Apathy
12-02-2006, 09:28 PM
I found a lyrics site that has it listed as 'This Is How It Goes (Original Version)'
So I'm thinking it's a demo. I'm 99.9% sure its not a cover.
It does however sadden me that I won't be able to get this song on a CD anywhere.

...a lot of bands change far more drastically than this, even. Some bands change so much between albums that you could know one album really really well and hear another one and not know it's them unless you were told.

Anyway, to Apathy, I think II has much, much better lyrics than the first one.

They're all correct, except the "When I Was a Little Girl" I was listening to was the re-recorded one, so it's technically not Pezz.

I glanced at it when I was listening to the player on their site. It's pathetic, average age has to be around thirteen.

Edit: It seems that I like all of the demos I find better than the actual songs. Also, this band is strange in the fact that they seem to have demos for many many songs. Most bands have demo songs, but they usually aren't released or they just don't sound that different.

They could probably just throw all of their demos onto an album and release it if they wanted to, and it would still do well.

Since it is just Ben, I highly doubt they'll play anything, but since I missed Billy Talent on TV the first time, I might as well try to catch them tomorrow. By the way, does anyone else even have CBC? It's from Canada, and it's channel 99 on my television.

Nothing special or original? Alright, I agree. I don't think Billy Talent is creating a whole new genre of music, either. I don't think there's any artist out there that can imitate each of their songs, though.

I like Billy Talent's diversity. Listen to "M&M", then "This Is How It Goes", and then "Surrender" and you might be surprised that was all the same band. I don't think any of their songs "sound thd same". I know you didn't say that, but that is one of the things I love about them.

The Blood Brothers might be able to pull off a cover of "Line And Sinker" and I can see "Depeche Mode' doing "Surrender" with synth (Wow, that would be amazing).

Maybe this is just me being out of touch with punk, rock, pop-punk and anything guitar-driven these days, but I've always felt that Billy Talent has a bit of a unique style and ARE original. They're clearly influenced by a lot of things we've already heard, but their music is extremely distinct in sound both instrumentally and vocally.

That's just my opinion though.

This is how it goes "cover" (http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZEP8mybwk6w)

Warning: Chorus is so much horrible than you can possibly imagine.

I like the first one more, it's simpler. The second one's still great though.

Holy crap, I just met Billy Talent. *crosses out #6 on "100 Life Goals" list*

Billy Talent was arguably the greatest live band I've seen yet, and saying a lot, because MCR was amazing. The local Hi-Fi Handgrenades were a lot better than several of the bands I've already seen, I met them too, I also met Drive By and got autographs, they were even better, sounded really gooed. I ended up buying CDs from both of those bands.

Then came Billy Talent, who were amazing, they so-called "saved the best for last" (Detroit is last stop on U.S. tour). So while my friend got autographs from Hi-Fi Handgrenades, I bought a Billy Talent poster.

Then, when we waited for a ride on a corner in Downtown Detroit watching fireworks come from Comerica Park, my friend notices a bus across the street, with a small crowd of people around it, I didn't believe it was Billy TAlent at first, but then Ian D'Sa marched out, and I was over there quicker than a jackrabbit in July.

The bass player wasn't there, but I got autographs from the rest of the band. I had a little "what's up? how's it going. great show tonight" conversation with Ben, the lead singer, and shook his hand. I shook Ian's hand and told him he was my hero, and Aaron was flirting with girls, so I just had him sign my poster.

The second greatest moment of my life by far.

I know this is from the old album, but fucking hell, I'm mad at myself right now for not realizing sooner that Line & Sinker fucking RULES. FUCK!

I know what you mean. I used to dislike that song, too. Early-2006 Jesse was kind of an idiot.

Dude that's awesome. Whenever I go to gigs there's always a little bit of me that wishes that I'd be able to see the band members and get to talk to them. Sadly it's never happened yet.

Also whenever I see posts in this thread I always hope that it'll be news on a third album, especially when the thread title is "New Billy Talent Album"!

To be fair, this thread was made before BTII came out. Is there a way to change the title to just "Billy Talent"? Or, like, "The Official Billy Talent Thread"?

Why does everything that knows I listen to Cursive think I should listen to Billy Talent too?

You sure it's because you listen to Cursive, and not just because Billy Talent is an amazing band?

Yeah, I just listened to some Cursive songs on last.fm, and they don't sound at all alike.

06-20-2007, 12:03 PM
Yeah, that's why I was so confused. Like, that Pandora radio thing was doing a decent job of playing me Cursive-ish stuff but then played two songs by Billy Talent in like 10 minutes leaving me all 'wtf?'

I've gotten into Billy Talent very much, ever since I saw them With Thursday and Rise Against back in '06 I believe. I think their new album was well done; however I like the first one much better. I've been looking for their album under the name Pezz, I cannot find it at Amazon.com or BestBuy.com, and do you know where I'd be able to order it?

Last time i checked their site, there was a link from there. I'm not sure if its still available though. Your best and easiest bet is to ask either Nineteen Seventy Nine or 0r4ng3 to upload it for you, as i know they both have it.

EDIT: Jesse beat me to it.

Hey, and if you don't feel like purchasing the CD, just use this link:

http://voicesofviolence.cjb.net/

And click on "downloads" at the top. I think they are in WMA format, but you should be able to convert it with ease, especially if you use iTunes.
