I've been looking forward to this since my own grave dropped. Easily one of my most anticipated albums of the year! Thanks for the leak! 🤟😈🤟

Really solid album, some excellent heavy & melodic parts, some amazing riffs too. I have major gripe with it though, the snare tone is horrible. It 'Pops' like a downtuned kick and feels flat as hell. Besides that, it's really great. 

 

Cheers as always guys.

Is it just me or does my own grave stick out over the rest as louder and doesnt hit the highs and lows of the other songs. It was the only track that was mix and mastered seperate to the rest and by someone else.

My Own Grave was mixed and mastered by Nolly and the other songs were mixed and mastered by Joseph McQueen and Ted Jensen (going by the wikipedia page), so i guess it has to do with that

Not a bad album to start with, the singles have been some of their best work ever.

Unpopular opinion:Awakened has been my favorite album of theirs for years.

 

This album releasing at all is truly a dream come true.

 

Thank you!

I’m just floored that I was super hyped over My Own Grave when it came out and it’s EASILY the weakest track on this monster. Amazing redemption story for Tim and the gang and an absolutely massive album to come back with.

this album is so 2000's metalcore that my shirt shrunk from an L size to an S and my work shoes morphed into a pair black Vans slip on. 10/10

Youd think at that point they wouldve mixed it to fit in w the others. Or just keep it as a stand alone single and off the album.

The album is just as the title said, shaped by fire.

 

Very sick metal album, has a lot of good moments and overall I see it being on many AOTY list's this year, including mine.

 

Best songs: Torn Between, Gatekeeper, The Wreckage, Take What's Left and Redefined. The Wreckage is my most favorite.

Honorable mentions: Blinded, My Own Grave, The Toll It Takes

Been following the lads since like 2008, grew up with An Ocean Between Us constantly on repeat for fucking years.  And now this. Full circle guys, the kings came back to claim their throne. 

This album shits on top of 99% of modern “metalcore” bands by miles. 

Until insomnium drops, definitely AOTY for me. 10/10

"Only After We've Fallen" is the best track (apart from singles).
