Their song Apology is indeed awesome. There's also an acoustic version on the new Punk Goes Acoustic: Volume Two album, and it's fantastic. As well, listen to their song The Third Temptation of Paris; it's absolutely beautiful. Not hard at all. In fact, it's quite the opposite; I don't think there's any screaming at all in the song.

I think Alesana is a great band, but I can definitely see what many people don't like them. In fact, I used to hate music with any screaming at all, but now it's about all I listen to.
Most of the music I listen to has screaming, and I hate this band. Well maybe hate is a strong word. I just don't like music that is mediocre and generic.

Actually yeah I do hate them because they call themselves emo/screamo when they clearly are not. Forgot about that.

pen wears its steady course across the page
resigned to it's designs to take the hive

emptiness has darkened my eyes

I wish I could make you see, I wish I could make you see through the pain
through the end, I wish I could make you see the greater purpose that I have to serve...
no one else will fight...no-one else will fight...so I must
my iron eyes tell the tale
heroes always pay in their blood
I can be only this

I see the fear growing in there...
ffffffff

it sounds about as bad as it looks

I don't really understand the hate for this band. The Emptiness is one of the most beautiful story in an album i've ever heard.



If it's wrong to be a fan of these guys, than I guess i'm wrong, but I know good music and good lyrics when I hear it.

I've learned from listening to this band that the lyrics are the most important part of a post-hardcore band. They're usually very emotional, and tend to hit you deep in the heart.

If I want to be exposed to a quality story, I'll pick up a book, watch a movie, or do any number of things.... what I will not do, however, is listen to ****ty music so I can hear a story. I don't see the sense in that.

You wouldn't listen to music for a story? Most music is storytelling in music form.

This is actually pretty much what he does live, lmao.
but Dennis has gotten better with his screaming (:

the term is on Urban Dictionary


I have loved this band since 2008. With that being said, after hearing "The Emptiness" and "A Place Where The Sun Is Silent" I can understand how someone would hate them if the first songs they heard were from "On Frail Wings Of Vanity And Wax." I love all of their albums, of course, but their sound was so much more raw back then.

I love how they tell a story with their lyrics. They recently wrapped up their Annabel trilogy, which was one of the only reasons I was still listening to them. Around 2011 I got sick of listening to screaming music, so I didn't really listen to any screaming unless it was Alesana and even then, they got skipped on my playlist a lot. It's like I had to be in a certain mood to listen to them.
Now I'm getting back into this type of music more, when I'm not listening to alternative, but I have to say I'm glad I stuck with Alesana for so long because they've also introduced me to a great many other bands, and they put on an incredible ****ing show. Add to that the fact that the guys are immensely passionate about their music and their fans, and you've got yourself a fangirl right here.
