    If anyone likes hardcore with awesome guitar work, check this band out.

    They recorded their self-titled debut album as seniors in high school, and they rip. There are only three members: guitarist, bassist, and drummer. The guitarist and bassist share vocal duties, though the guitarist is usually lead vocals.

    I saw them in concert last night and was extremely impressed. The guitarist/singer can play songs practically note for note and sing/scream, it's very amazing to watch.

    If you haven't heard them, I highly suggest you look into it.

    They're also available on PureVolume:
    PV

    And I'm sure they have a Myspace

    I like the vocals. But I can understand why they would bother some people.

    The screaming vocals don't bother me, it's the singing, it just seems so whiny and out of tune... =/

    Fair enough. It's not for everyone (though, in their defense, I will say that they're rarely not in tune)

    Heard a preview of their album on Smartpunk a while back and I've been hooked ever since, for such a young band they're incredibly talented :E

    I was shocked to find out that this is a three piece band. You would never know this just by listening to them, due to how all of the tracks are layered and full .One can’t help but to be left in aw after finding out that there lead singer Thomas Erak also plays Guitar for the band

    Yeah, they're really good live.

    What I think is even more interesting is that their self-titled 2003 album was recorded, like, right after they graduated high school.

    I almost went and saw them, but I didnt have....the money, the ride, and people to go with.
    I heard of them because I started listening to Chiodos(Guilty Pleasure) and saw that they were touring together, so I decided to check The Fall Of Troy out, yeah after I heard them, I was listening to them non stop for quite awhile. I love the guitar work, it, to me, has this sort of Cursive meets Hardcore feeling to it. I love the band and I'm definitely going to try and see them live some time. Doppelganger is a kickass album, havetn checked out Self-Titled though.

    Chiodos is awesome.

    Yeah, their first album is just as good as Doppelganger. I honestly can't choose between the two

    Yeah, I like Chiodos it's just a guilty pleasure, because I usually dont like bands that whine, Fall of Troy dont whine much so I dont mind them, but Chiodos does, but I still like them. I'll definitely look out for the fisr Fall of Troy record.

    My friend went to see Number 12 Looks like you with Between the Buried and Me, he said they were amazing live. I really want to see The fall of Troy but they can never get into Canada.
