I think its mostly in relation to their old drummer who fuuucked them over pretty bad. I've talked to everyone in the band except him and they're all kick a$$ dudes.

yah they are pretty cool dudes. i met jaime once a few years ago and he convinced me to buy their debut album (he works at the fye in the Westfield mall here in brandon) and was blown away since i half expected it to be another sh**ty metalcore band ripoff. needless to say theyve become one of my favorite local acts here in tampa.
