It was a good album. The whole too patriotic thing is a load of bull. seeing as how there are songs concerning Napolean and Attila......which I recall those songs have nothing to do with America.

Hold at All Costs is probably the best song of the trilogy


Hold At All Coast is a fantastic track for sure.


I agree, Hold at all Costs is surely an epic song! I really like the bass line schaffer put in it, and also the chorus is excellent!

I go on random websites and forums, and this truly seems to be the most hated IE album. Most likely because of the departure of Matt Barlow... but I disagree completely

Not only the story, but the scores on the trilogy are godly... to be honest, it's becoming my favorite trilogy from the band  Shocked  Laughing

well it is simply epic, and the idea behind it really kicks ass. the only thing why people still say it is crap is, because they: 1. think Jon became a nationalist /  2.don't like Rippers voice
both shitty reasons if you ask my

I think they want to like ripper's voice, it's just the fact that he replaced Barlow
