NEW RULE: NO METAL BANDS WITH ANY REFERENCE TO SKYLINES IN THEIR NAME ALLOWED
One of Victory Records’ latest signs, Design the Skyline, are from Corpus Christi, Texas, and Roadrunner’s newly-announced acquisition, At the Skylines, are from Huntington Beach, CA. So I have no idea if the bands’ paths ever crossed before, or people routinely got them confused as they ascended from their local scenes… but I imagine people will start to get them confused quite a bit now that they’re both on large, well-known labels.
And to be fair, there are some differences in the two bands’ respective sounds, but to be even fairer, those differences are pretty negligible. And to be fairest of all, I haven’t yet made up my mind about which band I hate more. I imagine it will be whichever one ends up getting more popular. ‘Cause they’re both, y’know, totally awful, and it will be hard for me to accept a reality where one or both of them have a career, while plenty of other, far more talented bands struggle to survive.
Here are music videos from each group, in case you’d like to start forgetting which one is which now.
