Vanta, Celeste, Jukai and The Watch are giving the album it's justice. Banger.

Don't forget Silent Planet's WTEB coming out a week before Holy Hell! Honestly, the second half of 2018 is heavy as fuck.

The cleans are really turning me off. The musicianship and everything else is fantastic.

I was listening to it on a shitty Bluetooth speaker, lmao. That vs my $2500 surround. HUGE difference.

Yea it is, I guess. Not sure how you’d compare the two but if I had to pick one to listen to, I’d pick this.

Glad im not the only one who got Jacko vibes. Love the album though, but what the hell is with bands releasing albums sub 40 minutes nowadays?

AWOL - 5/5
Hollow King - 5/5
Vanta - 4/5
Mirror Image - 4/5
Ivory - 3/5
Stygian Blue - 3.5/5
Leviathan - 3/5
Celeste - 4/5
Jukai - 4/5
The Watch - 4.5/5

 

That makes a 7/10 for me. 

The album was solid. There were nice moments, but then there were songs like Ivory or Leviathan where I was like "meh, could have been better". 

My favorite songs on the album are A.W.O.L, Hollow King and The Watch (that breakdown, brutal as fuck)

The album also sometimes reminded me of old PERIPHERY, which is also a very cool thing. 

I still can recommend to give it a spin.

Really wish i loved this but it's not clicking. Maybe i need a second listen but nothing here is even touching anything from their last album. An the vocal melodies on some parts are Straight cringe.

I can't hear what the issue is, just hear good tunes, really like this. It is DIFFERENT from the previous album, so that is most likely the issue.
