Its not often that a band as special as Botch comes along, and sadly, its often that a band this good splits up too early (Deadyguy, Curl up and Die and I think even Beecher have called it a day. Plus add to this the fact that Cave In may as well have split up after Until Your Heart Stops - only their second full length. Okay, okay so they still tour but think of all that melodic material they play at shows now!). Anyway, We Are The Romans is Botch's best album. It kicks off with To Our Friends In The Great White North. What a start! This song has everything. To be honest, I think that this is actually the best song on the album. But don't despair because the album is chock full of great moments, be it the aggresive FAB, or the melodic tinged Transitions From Persona To Object (great atmosphere created here). At the moment this is probably my third favourite album of all time, behind Jane Doe, and Until Your Heart Stops. The guitar work is fantastic, and the vocals are very pleasing. The vocals are no where near as extreme as most hardcore and death vocals, but the guy can still scream and sometimes he switches to spoken word mode which he also does quite well. This album is intelligent and brutal. I'd buy it if I were you.

We Are The Romans, Botch's penultimate release, proved to be an incredible, original and instantly legendary album in the hardcore scene. However, the fact that it can hold it's own and be recognised for being an astounding piece of musical achievement outside of hardcore is it's most rewarding factor. The title alone - implying political articulation, metaphorical thinking and aggressive opinion on the part of the band - is just the start of this monsterous journey into the mind of the most respected of modern 'metalcore' groups. Fist track, To All Our Friends In The Great White North, is an instant breath-taker with it's comicalisation and dismissal of right-wing, elitist thinking (vocalist Dave Verellen wrote all the lyrics, but bassist Brian Cook was given carte blanche to come up with the absurd, tongue-in-cheek song titles). From the first second, you know that this going to be an effortlessly energetic, intense and superbly produced 53 minutes of music. The guitars sound like rabid dogs chasing you up a tree, the drums are pummellingly loud, and the vocals are syrupy and malevolent.
Second track, Mondrian Was A Liar, starts of a little less intensely, but soon shows it's stripes as another bruiser. Transitions.. starts off like some kind of morbid Pink Foyd immitation, but soon warps into a break-neck, unpredictable mosh-inducer, undoubtably awesome-sounding live. Next track, Driving The Channel is an awesomely atmospheric instrumental, and it isn't until this track that you begin to realise how bafflingly simple guitarist Dave Knudson's riffs can be. If you consider yourself to be a just-about above parr hardcore guitarist (as I do myself) you can't help but think 'Damn, why didn't I think of that?' - but you didn't, so get over it. Botch got there first.

Botch went sadly unnoticed within the metalcore/mathcore genre. It is only now, after they have split, that they have become cult heroes.
On hearing ‘We are the Romans’ it is no surprise why. Simply put, it is one of the most outstanding albums I have ever heard. Every aspect of the music is very accomplished, and it is all tightly structured and well produced.
The vocals, drums and bass are all superb. The standout feature of the music, however, is Dave Knudson’s guitar work. There is the occasional melodic part, but usually the unbelievably technical riffs fly from a whole range of directions and tangents, colliding together like one giant car pile-up.
But the music still sounds organized and intentional, ‘controlled chaos’ if you will. In fact, that is part of the beauty of Botch’s music: the more you listen to it, the more is revealed to you, as you begin to unearth the complex structures and time changes. It definitely takes repeated listens before you realise the sheer scope of what’s going on.
Botch were highly original, inventive and intelligent musicians and their influence is already present in bands such as The Dillinger Escape Plan and Sikth. ‘We Are the Romans’ is a timeless classic, still to be discovered by many.

"We Are the Romans" is the second and sadly last full length studio album from Seattle band Botch. What can I say about this album that hasn't already been said? It's an album of great intelligence, creativity and heaviness. A truly sublime album by a criminally underrated and talented band. You can't consider yourself a fan of heavy music until you've heard this album. An easy 5/5 album.

this album is in my personal opinion what metal music should be turning into. They,ve been around for years and no one realy took any notice of them. Why? They have mad technical riffs held loosly together by the rappidly changing drumming and the vocals fill in the rest. simple but o so technical. a classic.
