I thought they were a joke band for 5 seconds, but they are just really good at what they do. I've only heard the single for "Deadly Sinners" and that is enough for me to pass judgement. Fresh is right. You should be able to bottle this kind of Power. You can, its called Jaggermeister, I suppose.Curtsurly 23:39, 22 May 2005 (UTC)


Should we be more specific and call them a power metal band? It really fits their sound.

Eh, Power/Heavy Metal is probably the best thing to call them since that's what they're listed as under Encyclopedia Metallum. And whoever added Screamo is officially retarded, just because one of their vocalists uses Hardcore-styled growls/screams does NOT make them screamo.

Yes also more recently someone had metalcore, but it has changed to heavy metal, so if anyone wants to regard to the genre please check here first, thanks.

3ib plays a completely new genre called Power Thrash. Ask Jamie. Unfortunately, conversations I've had with the members qualify as original research so noone will go with it until its in the paper. -dragonnas 7/3/2007
You are absolutely correct that this would constitutes OR, but you/they are probably incorrect to state that what they're playing is a 'completely new genre'. Blackmetalbaz (talk) 12:56, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
But if a source can be found, I see no problem adding something to the article about them calling their style of music that. Inhumer (talk) 13:03, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Oh sure, if a source can be found. It's similar to bands using terms like razorgrind or mincecore though. As always though, these debates just degenreate into people bitching on talk pages rather than finding reliable sources. The endless genre debates on pages like System of A Down are either comical or deeply frustrating depending on what mood I'm in. Blackmetalbaz (talk) 13:06, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I've taken breaks from wiki because of stupid shit like that. Also, a quick check of Google came up with nothing reliable. Inhumer (talk) 13:13, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Jamie Hooper's vocal style[edit]

Someone is continually editing the page to say Jamie Hooper sings in a Black Metal style, which is completely inaccurate. It is widely accepted (as can be seen in any number of reviews) that he has a metalcore voice. Radagast1983 09:26, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

metalcore is not what he sings. Metalcore vocals are normally produced to be a much higher volume than the accompanying music (american-style); as though the people playing instruments are just "backup" and the vocalist is the only important member. 3ib is european-style metal production, meaning that the vocals are at a volume and prominence comparable to the rest of the instruments so each member has an equal voice and contribution to the sound. Very different from metalcore. -dragonnas 7/03/2007
You just stated difference in production, the way singer sounds is closest to metalcore/hardcore, maybe even screamo but I wouldn't go that far remembering how classic metal fans usually despise this genre.
No sources have been provided to back up either statement. Blackmetalbaz (talk) 12:58, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

New pics uploaded[edit]

The new pics that were uploaded are from 2005, which is fine for Cam, but the new group shot shows the old lineup. That doesn't make much sense. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nadcraker (talkcontribs) 17:06, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Previous infobox picture was also form 2005 and was very "artistic" almost looking like it could be just about any band. Until someone comes with more up to date picture, we have two options - to keep an old line up or to replace the pic with an image of Cam (who seems to be a stable member) MarkMarek 17:33, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Kazoo Player?[edit]

Under current players it lists Jacob Blair(2008 - present) as playing the kazoo. Is this vandalism or some joke by the band? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scrabbleship1 (talkcontribs) 23:09, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Folk Metal[edit]

couldnt 3 inches of blood be considered folk metal since they often contain themes that a very common in folk metal. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:27, 17 July 2009 (UTC)


first of all, why is power metal no longer in the genre list? they are very much power metl

second, when did Jamie Hooper *leave* the band?? everywhere I've seen it says he's on hiatus from the band. Ducky610 (talk) 08:44, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I started to revert his removal but his name has been taken off the website Thedarxide (talk) 11:52, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

wow your right; was there ever an official announcement about that?

and what about Power Metal?? is there any disagreements about them being power metal? Ducky610 (talk) 11:50, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Here Waits Thy Doom[edit]

This section talks about Jamie Hooper and not about the album at all, except for a brief mention. This should either be removed or replaced entirely with something relevant to the album. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmsuperman (talkcontribs) 17:39, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
