Album Review

Hailing from Troy, Michigan, brutal metalcore act We Came as Romans followed up their successful 2011 effort Understanding What We've Grown to Be with third album Tracing Back Roots. The album features more straightforward, un-effected vocals from singer David Stephens, who prior to this album focused more on distorted screaming vocals, leaving the clean singing to band keyboardist Kyle Pavone. Along with their regularly pummeling melodic metalcore sound, We Came as Romans also incorporate soaring anthem-like pop into their songs, taking tunes like the title track and "Ghosts" all over the map stylistically, from harsh breakdowns to almost emo-pop chorus harmonies.

Customer Reviews

Back to the roots!!!

This song lives up!! Four years ago, planted a seed. Six years ago, Married a bride. Eight years ago, admitted to the dreams!

I don't really like it..

I'm a huge fan of WCAR but I don't really like this song. Like it just doesn't click to me like all of their other songs. And I think it's because there aren't clean vocals until 2 minutes into the song. And it's not part of the chorus. I'm not in any kind of hurry to buy this song. Ill probably just wait for the album. This is an honest opinion. I still love WCAR though.


This band always puts me in a good mood. This song is good

We Came as Romans hail from Troy, MI, an upscale Detroit suburb that gave birth to the band’s blend of post-hardcore and melodic screamo. Guitarist Joshua Moore, bassist Andy Glass, drummer Eric Choi, guitarist Lou Cotton, and vocalists David Stephens and Kyle Pavone headlined shows in the Michigan area before graduating to the national circuit, where they opened shows for the likes of Our Last Night, Gwen Stacy, and The Number Twelve Looks Like You. We Came as Romans took time off in September 2008...
