I have loved northlane for a long time but this just doesn't do it for me. I didnt expect anything ground breaking judging from the singles released and i wasnt surprised or let down with my assumption. I can totally see festival kids diggin it but i cant get behind EDMcore or wookcore.

 

Its a no from me dawg.

Wookcore?

Im not understanding the whole EDM thing, electronic dance music, just cause there's some synth doesn't mean EDM. This doesn't scream EDM to me at any point except for maybe Rift

Don't act like you're surprised. Most of KL people have no musical/genre orientation. All they need is one synth or one power chord and suddenly everything is EDM, Numetal and compare it to other bands totally out of the range

Literally every track has synth and/or electronic beats. Maybe you should learn basic math skills before assuming everyone is the same in lacking your superior knowledge of genre classification.

Please read my comment again and get some context, because you're just making fool of yourself for not understanding basic sentences

The issue with calling this EDM, abd I stress this, is Electronic DANCE Music. Where's the dance in this album? Where? Electronic in every song does not equate to EDM

Is moshing not dancing? 

 

Therefore every type of core is dance music?

Probably hiding somewhere with the "progressive" aspect of this release.

Just because the songs are heavy on electronics doesn't make them EDM in any way. Certain outros (Freefall, Jinn, Paradigm), most of Eclipse, the breakbeat in Sleepless, those are clear EDM moments but the rest is just rock/metal with a fuckton of electronics on top, don't make them EDM tracks though.

Managed to find a decent 320 floating around. This album definitely has a nostalgic feel to it. Early 2000's industrial/Linkin park theme going on, just a little bit. Mostly enjoyable. Only really enjoyed about 4 tacks. 7.0/10 with vox. When that instrumental lands. Its a solid 7.8/10 for me. Buying that version fosho. Cheers ya Aussies.

I did the mistake mistaking a transcode with an actual 320kbps too, no worries

 if it's a transcode its still 128.

 

a very poor comparison would be like watching a DVD from 2002 on the latest bluray player.   you're still watching a DVD 

 

butt even then I think there is some upscaling with that comparison... so less than that.

It's alright, nothing mind blowing. Bands MiW, Crossfaith, Issues etc have been doing the electronica stuff for ages so dunno how this is 'fresh' tbh. That being said, music is subjective, if you love this, that's great, we all like different stuff.

 

My personal favourite Aussie releases this year are from 'Dealer' & 'The Gloom in the Corner'

I wasn't a big fan of Mesmer but this is a HUGE improvement. I'm loving this new sound!

funny thing, when i first joined KL, the first recommendation i got from a KL member was Mesmer. and here i am about a year later loving the band.

I'd like to say, as an ex kl staff member, and a trusted member,  that isn't how a transcode works

You are attempting to portray a refined and superior taste in music over other people here by .. stanning.. a fucking northlane, generic metalcore album.. lmao.

 

Yea, you right, most of KL have no idea about music.

Yes making 2 posts in 5 pages = spamming a thread.  And the other 2 posts are just me responding to an idiot claiming I'm spamming the thread.

I listened cause you guys be hypin this. 

Hated it. I thought most of it was

downright boring. A couple of songs just droned for 4 minutes with barely a change. Others had some really shitty screeching. I think one song was ok. 

No AOTY material here in the slightest.
