As Cities Burn from Louisiana is in my opinion one of the most under appreciated bands out there. Since there formation in 2002 the band has released 1 EP and 3 Full length albums. Every single one of these albums is filled with pure emotion. Even after 2 of their members left the band to start families, they continued to make music. They mastered a style of melodic metalcore that stands out and can truly be called their own. Their songs are about pain, hope, and a belief of a better tomorrow. The band broke up after the release of Hell Or Highwater in 2009. As Cities Burn was signed to Solid State/Tooth and Nail records.
