I think Saetia>Hot Cross, barely. I really love the technical riffs Hot Cross lays down. That being said, I thought Risk Revival was pretty mediocre, probably because it wasn't as technical and the singing was really poppy in the bad way.

Though I think the two are radically different in every way so that to compare the two would be rather pointless, I'd have to say that Hot Cross is immensely superior to Saetia.

Are you guys serious? All Hot Cross songs come across as incredibly forced and generic.

The guitar is nothing special, just a bunch of little riffs that are a bit technical but just plain boring. Lyrics are pretentious and the vocals don't fit well into the music. Granted, I find them better than most other "post-hardcore" bands out there, but they're still nothing special. I don't see how you can not get bored by this... you just can't feel any emotion behind it. It feels like they're playing just to play (and it feels that way live, too). I wish it was less technical, because as it is it's far too rigid/structured. I would compare them to The Fall of Troy (not quite so boring as they, though), maybe, or an even less interesting At the Drive-In. I'm sure I could find a number of other bands who remind me of them, but I don't listen to them as I find them boring and emotionless.

By stark contrast, I think that Hot Cross are much more interesting, emotionally charged, and original than Fall of Troy, but all of that is subjective anyway.

Wierd. I don't get that at all from them. Especially live.
