EDIT: NEW SONG DESTABALISE RELEASED OCTOBER 25 2010:


This song is incredible, can't wait to see what they come up with on their next album!

So, I'm wondering how many of you are big fans of Enter Shikari like I am?
They are a British Post hardcore/Electronic band that has released 2 full length LP's so far. After seeing them live, I would have to say they are my overall favorite band out there. They are upbeat, incredibly original (no one sounds close to them on their second LP "Common Dreads"), intelligent people, great musicians and songwriters, and they are known for playing mind blowing live shows (they did not let me down). They are not necessarily in the main stream, but through their epic live shows and solid albums they have gathered many devoted fans, and I believe they are pretty huge in the UK right now (I'm from America).

here's one of their older-style songs


And here's one of their newer style songs


Anyways, let me know what you think of them, if you're a fan of them, what songs of theirs you like/dislike. All I have to say is that if you EVER get a chance to see them live, eve if it's an inconvenience...DO IT! They are incredible live.

I think they are fairly average and lacking in innovation. Take to the Skies really wanted to be Horse the Band and they fell short because they take themselves so seriously. Horse the Band is s**tty metalcore with synths but they're hilarious because they know how to use irony and make fun of themselves and the genre. Take to the Skies was some cool trance beats over a rather pathetic high school attempt at "metalcore", if it can even be called that. Chugging the same drop C# power-chord and the odd melodic death metal riff doesn't make for good metalcore. Oh no.

I listened to some of Common Dreads and it's alright. The electronic stuff is actually pretty good and I think they should become a glitchy post-metal band or something because they're doing that right. Average post-hardcore sections and yet more drop-tuned chugging kind of kill any credibility it has as a mature album, though. Also, the singer's accent is f***ing annoying; I'm from England and I don't know a single person who draws out their accent like that.

So yeah. Pretty mediocre/average. It's all subjective, though. I like a ton of stuff most people here would hate.

I thought these guys sucked when I heard them probably 5 years ago. I can't imagine they're any better.

They're ok. The vocalist isn't very good but I love the instrumental elements they produce.

Enter Shikari really annoys me, especially the vocalist.

Slightly off-topic:

Horse the Band is s**tty metalcore with synths but they're hilarious because they know how to use irony and make fun of themselves and the genre.


Really? I thought their newest album, Desperate Living, was actually pretty great, though I haven't heard anything from before that.

I don't know how you could possibly say these guys suck live. Even if you dislike their genre of music (which seems to be the case with alot of you), you have to respect the passion, energy and quality they put into their performances. They blew me away when I saw them, it was amazing.

Explain to me how they're not original and I might take your post into consideration.

Explain to me how they *are*

The whole idea is just unoriginal. I can't really post what exactly, because it all is. And the melodies and such are just boring, and overused.


edit: they remind me of brokencyde. Thats what it was.

BROKENCYDE?!?! good god you have got to be kidding me. You are obviously unaware of enter shikari's style if you compare them to that [cabbage]. Maybe if you actually listen to the lyrics of enter shikari (I don't know about you, but lyrics matter in my musical tastes), or perhaps listen to how much more musical talent enter shikari has, you would take that statement back. Enter shikari *is* original because they have mastered the blending of post-hardcore, electronic, dubstep, and alternative rock and combined it in a way that no other band has done. Their songs naturally flow and their lyrics are well thought-out. On top of this, they can actually play their music live and bring more energy to their shows than any of the other 30+ bands I've seen in my lifetime. I honestly think if you listened to them WITH AN OPEN MIND (perhaps their newer stuff would suite you better), you would become a fan.

They're my favourite band <3.

Saw them last year at the Apollo in Hammersmith. Tiny little venue, and the whole thing was nuts. The energy in that little room was incredible.

They are amazing live.

So don't let anyone tell you you're not worth the earth,

These streets are your streets, this turf is your turf,
Don't let anyone tell you that you've got to give in,
Cos you can make a difference, you can change everything,
Just let your dreams be your pilot, your imagination your fuel,
Tear up the book and write your own damn rules,
Use all that heart, hope and soul that you've got,

And the love and the rage that you feel in your gut,
And realise that the other world that you're always looking for,
Lies right here in front of us, just outside this door,
And it's up to you to go out there and paint the canvas,
After all, you were put on the earth to do this,
So shine your light so bright that all can see,
Take pride in being whoever the [bleep] you want to be.

finally someone who agrees. I live in the U.S. and saw them at warped but I'm doing a semester abroad in colchester next spring so hopefully they tour England a bit then.

Saw them live at the start of this year as a friend had an extra ticket. Not my favourite band but their live show was pretty damn sweet, with the massive screens and the lights and such. Labrynth or Juggernauts are probably my favourite tracks.

Honestly, you're a precocious elitist who is really getting on my nerves. I simply made a comparison that I find to be quite accurate. You went off the deep end essentially calling me a preppy ignorant unintelligent musically deprived socially inept cretin. Because I didn't like a band. Does that make sense to you? Don't take your damn music so personally. I'm gonna take a gander and say you hate all of my bands. Some of them are really great, does that make you an idiot? Nope. Just means you have different musical tastes. And I honestly think I can say I have one of the most open minds on the forums, this may be disguised by my perpetual trolling but still. Don't make character assassinations if you don't know me. =\ Also, lyrics aren't everything. I mean, they are to me, but that doesn't define intelligence like you insinuate it to. In fact, it has nothing to do with intelligence, Albert Einsteins favorite song may just be Got Money by T-Pain, does that make him an idiot? You decide.

also, they sound like brokencyde. they really do. =\

First of all, you asked me to explain how they are original, so that's what I was going off about. Second of all, I wasn't calling you an idiot for not liking enter shikari, I WAS calling you an idiot because you deem them unoriginal and similar to brokencyde (honestly, brokencyde is a wanna be hip-hop screamo crunk-core talentless band. Enter shikari is nothing like them at all). So...You asked me to explain how they are original, and I did. I have yet to hear how they are not original.

Talent has nothing to do with whether or not they sound similar. The band is a dime a dozen. I can't pick out what is unoriginal, because it all is. It just is. The entirety of it. I mean it's nothing personal =\

I'm going to have to agree with most of the people here, from what I've heard of them they seem to be pretty mediocre. That doesn't mean you shouldn't like them though.
