I feel like I need to say this after the dust has settled and I've listened to it quite a few times;
It's honestly not as bad as I originally thought and the three new songs are some of the best on the whole album. Sad that Wedding Night is the only song with unclean vocals though, hoping there will be more on the next release(s).
I still think releasing a 9 track album after already releasing 6 tracks is a bit shit, but then again I feel the same when some bands release 4 songs from 12 track albums ahead of release.
Also, the whole "Slaves diss" thing was a fucking stupid move, and I'm gonna have a hard time trusting this band in future. It's just not the sort of thing you wanna be promoting ahead of the release, especially considering how many people would choose to not listen to it because of that. Band beef is always fucking stupid, especially when it's made up to bump your record sales/streams.
It's not quite A Spark To Believe, but it's still pretty good IMO.
That is all.
