Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
As promised, my favorite non-christian hardcore/metalcore records.
10. Botch – We Are the Romans
We Are The Romans is straight old school metalcore. You know, before bands started singing. The formula for the chug chug wee bands was started by Botch. While We Are the Romans isn’t an extremely heavy record and the sound and guitar work has been copied and played out by so many other bands, in 2000 when the album was released, there wasn’t a whole lot out that sounded like Botch.
