Other Releases by

this is... fine.  not as bad as some of you guys claim, its more streamline for sure but I don't get calling it 'mainstrem', still chugs, still grooves.. the samples and electronic touches are great.

 

dark skies is just a very, VERY difficult album to follow up.

''Prophet, what are your words for me?
Savior, am I too blind to see?
If you can create all of the stars
Then why can’t you mend a broken heart?


Came back to say that I am loving the hell out of this album.

@BlueWall  You are delusional. They have not released the same music every two years. Pull the earwax out of your ears and actually listen, every album is a bit different. FFAK has the best sound in Metalcore

 

 

 

 

 

fit for a king have been releasing the same shit every 2 years and you keep listening to it 

 

i'm not surprised they haven't bothered innovating 

this album could be 30 hours of Kirby & Tuck sharting their jorts in a Circle K carpark and you'd call it AOTD!!!!!!!

 

you would literally say it's album of the decade over some 1's & 0's over some bang bang hard drummy beats

 

you're scum and you don't deserve any better 

 

there's some fried units on this site istfg

@FFAKfanRyan Right, its not always about the music either. I love this band for their message also. Their music is just the cherry on top

If you took two seconds to read the thread and actually take the time to use your eyes you would've seen that I was openly joking and referencing a comment from a friend of mine on a DGD thread.

 

FFAK are average now, you have your opinion and you've shared it and I've shared mine on this thread in an initial joke post and then a more serious review on this thread since that comment.

 

Don't go picking arguments for the sake of it thanks

Ok I don't mean to hate but this shit sucks. It's literally just dad rock. Boring, bland, no innovation, no catchy lines. Listen for yourself. You won't make it to the end. I sure ass hell didn't.

I disagree with you  we are entitled to our own opinions. I Think it’s amazing after listening to it several times!

I can't believe this is the band that made Tower Of Pain and Shattered Glass. The chorus on The Path is maybe the worst thing they've ever done. God Of Fire is the only memorable track for me.

you have anime pic as avatar so your opinion is garbage by default

 

Honestly i would be fine with them doing just EP, 1 and 10 tracks are kinda useless, 3 and 8 are forgettable aswell

Hmmmmm.....

 

Well it ain't as bad as some of the comments make it out to be. As a whole it's a pretty average album.

 

I'm definitely not into FFAK for their heavier tracks. When I want raw, heavy Metalcore I go and listen to Crystal Lake. They just do it better than everyone else.

 

I much prefer FFAK's more melodic anthems. Breaking the Mirror is decent but Locked in My Head was a real treat. Very reminiscent of As I Lay Dying melodies which is how I prefer my Metalcore <3

Fit For A King are Christian and have lyrics that are related to their beliefs, BUT it's far from preachy and honestly, if you didn't look them up, you'd probably wouldn't know they were of Christian faith to begin with. And as someone who isn't big on religion to begin with, there's nothing wrong with listening to a band like Fit For A King as long as it's not on the nose with their faith.

I'm not 100% positive, but from various sources, the girl on the album cover is Ryan Kirby's girlfriend/wife (not sure of his relationship status tbh).


The purest, non-conformist jaded subhuman terrorist.

It isn't perfect but overall I'd give it a 8 or 8.5 /10. The face of hate was a weak album opener and a couple songs are repetitive but overall I'll definitely listen to this more than Dark skies

I listened to all FFAK albums before this one (yes, right out did a discography run) and I must say this is my favorite FFAK album so far. Sure, it ain't as heavy as Dark Skies, but you cannot tell me that none of these 10 songs are catchy in some way, especially the title track that is something Skillet tries to do recently (Rise Up is their closest try doing so rn), but FFAK does it on their first attempt; a catchy and relistenable anthem.

 

Sure, there is radio friendly stuff on the album, but is it that bad? Locked is for many repetitive, which I clearly can understand; but one radio friendly song or album does never destroy an entire career, yanno?

 

But back to the album - while not their heaviest work yet, it is certainly their catchiest. There's heavy stuff (especially Vendetta...holy fuck), there's melodic stuff, there's radio friendly stuff...basically a jack of all trades. 

 

Also, I really like this album cover.

 

Favorite songs: The Path, Prophet, Louder Voice, Vendetta

Thanks!

It's average because the genre hasn't changed in ten years. Give it another five years and metalcore like this legitimately will be "dad rock". The genre needs to innovate or be as relevant as 90s metal bands. 

 

Over the past five years I've gone off metalcore and nothing has managed to pull me back in. Usually I listen to pop punk and hardcore these days. Dayseeker are probably the only metalcore band I actively think are great but even their last album bores me now. 

 

I have to respect these guys for still producing music like this though, must get quite boring playing the same stuff.

i knew this album would be boring, but i couldnt imagine how boring and repetitive this could be. there is literally nothing new or any claim to a step forward. this album is cheap metalcore, without any reason to listen to compared to so many other metalcore albums. its a 4/10 for me.

like most metalcore these days then
