Lol. The shot at 27 was spitefully added after the downvotes poured in. But to really answer the question honestly, I'm just salty about the direction this band took and I can't help but be confused when people praise their most generic material. I'm not trying to shit on you guys for liking it, I just legit don't understand, and when I ask why people like it so much, the question is actually genuine. Like in my head I think, okay if you like THAT style there are countless bands that do something similar, but this band did something DIFFERENT, and they were really fucking good at it. In the past if I wanted songs like Requiem or Threads, I really didn't have a lot of choices, they filled that role. Now there's nothing in their sound unique enough for me to need to turn to them over other bands and that makes me genuinely sad. Hollowed Heart is like the poster child of what I don't want, and that's why I single it out. When everyone screams "yeah, give us a full album of that" I just think "oh god, please no."
So, forgive my salt, this band held a special place in my library and the fact that they've left it bums me right the fuck out.
