Biography

We Came As Romans are a force to be reckoned with. Having mastered the art of self promotion and self booking early on, the band has since garnered a colossal fan base and kept themselves on the road, only stopping long enough to record. Tireless and tour-hungry, We Came As Romans are pushing the envelope, combining influences such as the intertwined singing/screaming vocals of Underoath, the ...

Editorial Reviews

Michigan's We Came As Romans started the way most other bands do just a group of friends that wanted to play music and have fun together. But after some time playing in the local scene, it was clear the band had that special something that kept fans coming back. Their rapidly growing fan base lead them to headline shows around the state, and eventually stints on national tours with such bands as Our Last Night, Gwen Stacy, and The Number 12 Looks Like You.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational November 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
WCAR has abruptly become one of my favorite bands. I am very much a supporter of local music, and was turned on to their EP Dreams last winter. However, my interest in this band has nothing to do with location. Though at times, some may argue there is a generic sound being recycled in modern music, WCAR capture a sound that is definable among the rest. There is a healthy balance between metal riffs, catchy synths, and dueling vocals. Their music is filled with texture, and passion. Even after listening to the album dozens of times, I still find rhythms that have gone previously unnoticed.
My most important comment about this album is its lyrical content. I am so impressed with the uplifting lyrics these guys project. The album's artwork is self explanatory and captures the band's overall message. A seed is planted in the mind, expands to the heart, and then flows from the hands. I have not yet decided on a favorite track from the album because I am convinced I could listen to any one of them over and over again for days. Each track has something unique to draw you in.
I consider myself a music enthusiast and have felt no excitement about anything new for a very long time. This album has changed that. I much look forward to following albums from WCAR. The band is very young and has the potential and opportunity to become something really great.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the verge of Epic March 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to this now for a couple of weeks, and my love for this album grew each day.

There is so much to this album that finding a starting point is a bit of a challenge. I guess a good place to start is the music. It's amazing, mostly. Each song shares similarities with the others, yet each have something unique to bring to the table, always keeping things fresh track to track. Theres a lot of brutal hardcore offerings with grinding guitars and drum work, that seems sometimes sporadic, but actually adds to the intelligent design of the music. Added to the flare is wonderful piano notes and orchestral uplifts. Though nothing new per say, the way they are used gives several tracks a very dramatic, and cinematic feel. There is also some welcomed synth sections that are somewhat minimal, yet work wonderfully.

Whats great music without vocals? Neither work without the other, and no fear in that regard. The vocal stylings are just as great as the music. There are plenty of guttural screaming to be had...and its perfect. Some may say it takes no talent to belt out a scream, but I think it requires the same amount of talent to properly scream as it does to sing. Singing and screaming alike abound the record and its a joy to the ears. Lyrically, this album is great as well, providing a great meld with the musical tones throughout.

I see several reviews claiming this to be "Christian hard/metalcore" and thats just merely personal assumption. The band has publicly stated that it is not a Christian band, and that just because the music reflects a positive message, they automatically get slapped with the Christian tag. Not that I would have a problem if they were, their faith is none of my concern.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic album August 13, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Being a huge fan of all types of metal(progressive,death,math,technical,metalcore,deathcore,etc.), this band's unique sound caught my attention almost immediately. Precision drumming, intricate guitar riffs, and a perfect mix of low toned and soaring vocals. I have heard that many people like to bash this band for their use of auto tune and the fact that their singing takes away from the intensity of their sound. Not really. Smiles from ear to ear is more like it. Originality is hard to come by these days, and these guys pull it off quite well. To be honest i was skeptical about them before i bought the album, but i have to admit this is the first time in a long time i have gotten goosebumps or zoned out in awe listening to a music record. 6 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars I listen to a lot of black/death metal. May 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This band isn't anywhere close to being a black or death metal band. But I love this album just the same. There's no denying the talent and creativity these guys possess. The riffs, vocals, drums and song structures are easily some of the most original among all genres of metal. This album is packed full of inspired creativity and it never stops. From start to finish this band doesn't let up.

You'd think a fan of black metal wouldn't take to a band that likes to mix in a lot of clean, soaring-type vocals. But WCAR do it so well, there's no denying them. A band like this would probably be a band I would literally try to hate. But I just can't do it. They are too good, the production it too good, and the songs are just too damned catchy. This is a great young band that deserves to be recognized.

I'm an agnostic. I don't know if this is a Christian Metal band. I don't care. Neither should you. Just listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid February 10, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is a solid effort from a talented band. The music is intricate, interesting and driven. The sound is refreshing in this age of sound-alikes. The only hit (and the reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars) is that there are times when the vocals simply sound out of place. The singer has a punk voice, and when he belts it out over this aggressive stuff, it just plain sounds weird. But I'm sure that's just a matter of taste. Kick ass! Keep it coming!

I would recommend this CD to anyone who likes A Day To Remember or Escape The Fate, but this is a little more on the screaming side.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sound could be better
I think these guy's are great. I do think that they would do much better though if they dropped the screaming. Just my preference though.
