Following this album with a few years of extensive touring and preparation for the next release, Botch elevated their status within the scene (as well as outside of), and began to grab the attention of the world at large. However it wasn’t until the release of their second masterpiece (and we don’t use that term loosely) We Are the Romans, that Botch fever took hold nationally and internationally, infecting thousands and garnering the praise of music journalists far and wide. It’s been a long two years since the release of We Are the Romans and much has happened in the meantime. supported by 87 fans who also own An Anthology of Dead Ends. Aaron Turner can do no wrong.
In the case of the new Botch EP, however, ignoring the swell of overwhelming praise from my cluster of devoted intellimetal friends proved impossible. Little did I know that I'd already heard all of these songs before and, surprisingly, from shittier mainstream bands with less indie cred
An Anthology of Dead Ends (2002). We Are the Romans is the second and final studio album by American metalcore band Botch. A Hydra Head repressing of the vinyl was released on October 25, 2011 Contents. Botch's first show in support of We Are the Romans was the final show for the Seattle venue Rkcndy with The Blood Brothers, Playing Enemy and Kill Sadie in October 1999. The club was an all-ages venue that was being demolished to make way for a hotel. and while they're at the show, they're just hanging out with their friends.
Only for completionists (0%). Botch's 'An Anthology of Dead Ends' is the last studio recording we would get from this Tech Metal/Metalcore band because they disbanded shortly after . The album starts out with an unapologetic bombastic explosion of guitar that lasts all of 14 seconds. But now you know what to expect, because it gets louder than this and more complex. Next you have 'Spaim', 'Japam', and 'Vietmam'.
Botch were creative wizards. As a result they are the proud fathers of "Math-Metal" where bands like Dillinger Escape Plan have now taken over. Where alot of bands kept topping their works each time, At the drive-in, Refused, Botch, although following the same path, had TWO records that changed everything. Their second and final album "We are the Romans" is what showed everybody why they were such an important band and how they switched from, mis-understood noise merchants to creative geniouses.

The coolest part is that it's only 20 minutes, so there's no filler, no padded song length, just 20 minutes that will pound your skull. Album was ripped as a wav from the physical CD, and rendered in a video file with lcpm encoding @ 48k Hz. (my program wouldn't allow 4. k) No equalization. I've gotten over that phase. 00:00 - 00:14 Spaim00:14 - 03:11 Japam03:11 - 06:49 Framce06:49 - 10:49 Vietmam10:49 - 17:40 Afghamistam17:40 - 21:43 Micaragua.
