I found the lyrics emotional and compelling but I can't get behind the rest of it. The guitars sound very similar with little change and made the album sound very similar all the way through without a concernable difference between songs. 

 

6/10 for me. It's good, not as good as everyone is making it out to be

All the tracks tie together very nicely. The title track is an absolute banger. Maybe my fav on the album. A Wasted hymn is a great closer. The seventh circle is absolute madness...honestly was relieved it wasn't some electronic interlude. Track was short, sweet and to the point. Need to hear live. 

Otherwise, it's no AOGHAU. Still love it though.

 

Definitely need to let it sit for a bit before listening a second time.  

 

The production is a step up on this album definitely. Drums are better mixed. Sam sounds larger than life. The overall emotion of this album is at an all time high.

easily AOTM, contender for AOTY

 

great: royal beggers, doomsday

 

good: hereafter, mortal after all, holy hell, modern misery

Highly likely this will end up being my favourite album by them. Doomsday is their best song with a big difference imo.

This topped new Behemoth as AOTY for me. Might even like the album as much as AOGHAU.

Feel like I’m missing something but I’m really not seeing how this is an AOTY contender for people. Maybe it’ll grow on me but absolutely nothing stood out on my first listen, Doomsday is probably still the best track. Should’ve seen this coming really after Royal Beggars and Modern Misery fell a bit flat for me.

 

This is coming from a huge fan of LF//LT and All Our Gods. Just feel like this is a bit sub-par in comparison (understandable given the circumstances).
