    Okay, so someone on IRC told me to watch a youtube video, and it was of Crystal Castles.
    They're just so awesome.
    I've listened to "Alice Practice" about 60 times now.
    Amazingly, I actually found information about this indie band, and it turns out, that they're from Toronto.
    That's right, T.O., the metropolis of Canada.
    So now, I will find their album, and listen to it for hours.
    Then find something more constructive to do.

    I enjoy them too.

    However I believe they are from Rimouski, QC. (The oceanic blow though, Baie Comeau Drakkar for the win.)

    Lol have you noticed me Steve?

    I made a topic on this like... a week ago lol

    And yes, they is from the big T.O.


    Also if you have heard the song Ayo Technology by Fiddy Cent, you have heard Crystal Castles. That song is a rip off of the Crystal Castles song Courtship Dating.

    These guys are horrendous in my point of view, It was good in the beginning, and then it sounds like the chick is choking on the mic, after that Its just all 8-bit noise.

    It kinda sound like they are trying to do 8-bit black metal or so.

    Like Keep of Kalessin (Except they are kinda melodic Black Metal):
