Atreyu used to be one of my favorite bands way back in the day before I really discovered good metal...I still rock a few songs for nostalgia I'm not going to lie. Especially the Bon Jovi - You Give Love A Bad Name cover...fvcking gold haha

Anyways...this is the right decision for these guys. They've long since sold out and lost whatever credibility they ever posessed at one time...if they ever had any.

idc what anyone here (MU) says, but they were at least one of the most metal-oriented, or at least influenced, post-hardcore (or w/e the fvck they're considered) band. i like them and still do. they did awesome the last time i saw them last yr and i got to met the guitarist. i can't say i'm surprised about this, nor terribly sadden or something, but it does kinda suck.

Atreyu is metal?
Not to be a hater, but even when i first started getting into metal, i never liked their sound. Even their music quality took a sharp downward slide since their inception, so this is a good thing. a BETTER thing would be for them to break up and try their best to keep their presence logged in the bad metal section. its like having a Canada's Worst Drivers trophy in ur living room, not somethin to be proud of lol

Wow, that was so much stupid diarrhea of the mouth that I don't even know were to start.

I don't even like Atreyu other than a few songs on their early albums so this certainly isn't a personal thing as far as that goes. I mean, it's not like people are making fun of my favorite band or even anything close to it. I just have an issue when other metalheads are ignorant because there's such a negative stereotype these days that all metalheads are close minded dbags when it comes to music that I have an issue when people like you prove that stereotype to be true. I mean, I'm sure someone has listened to the idiotic things that come out of you and thought "Wow, all metalheads are close minded dbags I guess" when in reality most aren't. Most are very accepting to other forms of music. It's just the stupid people who are the loudest and make all the intelligent ones look bad.

And no, I know if someone doesn't like my music it doesn't mean they have anything against me for the most part. Although I do think to a small percentage the two can be connected since my taste of music is part of me in a way. Although, like I said, it does make up only one part of me.

Obviously I hit a nerve with you by the way because anytime I even remotely defend a band I like that you don't I get a whiny response from you.

This has made me semi emotional. Atreyu were a part of me becoming a fan of the heavy music. I now see their music as being wussy and trendy but I still listen to my old faves when I am reminiscing.

As I am sure is the case for most people, heavy metal didn't jump out at me straight away, it was a slow transition. For me the order of my development was post-grunge (Drowning Pool) -->; numetal (Disturbed) -->; metalcore (Atreyu, KSE). From there it just exploded and I now listen to everything from Saxon to Entombed.

I support the view that we shouldn't be close minded. Remember that most of the community judged metal for being all about slashing your wrists (whereas we all know that that is for the emo kids haha).

Like I say, their music is perhaps suited for 15 year old girls, but some people like these bands for other reasons as I stated above.

MHOz- I completely agree with what you're saying. And I see being such an ignorant elitist about bands like this as a bad thing because if you get people to stop listening to these bands, you may break that stepping stone that they are for a lot of people. I mean, I remember I used to listen to them and they were that for me too. Now I'm into every kind of Metal.

These "folks" that I'm talking about hellrat are the young, and the impressionable. Everyone of us have been there. I'm going to be willing to bet that most people don't listen to Electric Wizard, Morbid Saint, Doom:vs, or Watain as their first Metal bands. I'm sure it happens, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say not very often. Being such an ignorant metalhead as you have shown yourself to be may just be enough to turn someone away from Metal and stick to a band like Atreyu which is the very thing you're trying to stop (Which is funny to me at least).

Officially I am anti Atreyu but I do not judge because there are plenty of bands that I like that don't get general approval. Whitechapel springs to mind. The malcontent thing wasn't a thing for me, if I was worried about that I just wouldn't have posted.

my first real metal record i bought in 1984...Queensryche-the Warning, quickly followed by Powerslave (first metal show! 10 years old and chunder WASP opened)...was listening to slayer and metallica soon afterward...saw metallica open for ozzy in 86...saw megadeth open for dio the next year, then 'ryche supporting on the Justice tour, clash of the titans w/ alice in chains opening my last year of HS...first pantera show was fvcking demented, FBD at red rocks....so on and so fvcking forth up to NOW, the present...you think i don't know what the fvck is going on, you snivelling fvcking punk child? :)

and honestly, i don't know ANYone that has as diversified of musical tastes as i do...i like a lot of very disparate sh!t, ya know...and i certainly ain't above calling bullsh!t on ANYthing that is feigning to be something it is NOT...do you see? not hard to understand

anyway... the whole essence of what i've ever tried to convey to you, Marble Head, is that it should not matter to you what I, or anyone else on here thinks about fvcking ANYthing, really

so pull yer goddamned boots up and be down with what ya like, ya gilfordy kid...others may or may not agree with your choices...big fvckin deal either way!

you cannot possibly be that myopic?

Oh metalrox... You remind me of "mop" in the Swiffer commercial. Crazy mop... It really is sad that you don't understand the importance of negative opinions when it comes to music. Why do you take it so personally? I commend you for ammusing everyone in this thread though. Without it, some might take their day too seriously. Popping in here here once in a while to watch HR hand you your a$$ has been entertaining to say the least. Carry on HR...

I was just a kid with underdeveloped musical taste when I was introduced to Atreyu. They haven't gotten regular spins from me in years, but I do credit them as the gateway band to the stuff I like now.

From this day forth I shall relate the name Atreyu to that kid from Neverending Story and not the band I no longer care about.

And you know what's extra sh**?! Why every band picture have to have at least one guy crossing his arms.

Atreyu I never really listened to, but I mean they did help me get into the Slayer's and the Judas Priest's that I listen to today, so props to them, and good luck doing whatever they decide to do.

#73, i thought they were pretty light metal when i first heard them, i kinda thought they had the same sound of heaviness as Drowning Pools' Sinner if it was a little bit heavier.

^^^ bam bam & #73, 5fdp IS light metal or "pop metal". they're just basically that metal band that guys that don't know much about metal listen to at the gym, or say they listen to them and say that they like metal.

I honestly enjoyed the first two Atreyu albums, but in a weird sort of way. They had a good tone at that point and went steep down hill after "The Curse"
