There's a new Redbox email receipt from right here in Charlotte. Which one of you guys is getting your exorcism on? http://fb.me/LSaoZG5D


“Strangling the crap out of their poor guitars in a contorted and impressively dexterous style, NC’s A Hero A Fake likes things complicated as hell while wielding a penchant for dramatic sing-along choruses on ‘Let Oceans Lie’. Comparisons between AHAF’s sound and that of BTBAM, The Human Abstract, or Protest The Hero are not unwarranted, but the similarities unfortunately serve to render the record unsurprising, despite the fact that they are constantly shifting rhythms and tempos and throwing 300 notes a minute at you. Like the vast majority of progressive or technical records, it’s definitely a grower, and if you stick with it and show it some love, it steadily starts to give you more and more back.”
