  1. It's a shame that the breakdown is the best part of the song.
  2. Check out NERV if you haven't already. They are basically TCTT but with a vocalist who can actually sing. They are working on a full length that will probably be out early 2020.
  3. I really miss old TWA. Idk if anyone else heard this.... but in some parts of this song I would swear that this sounded like it was a Too Close to Touch song (not one specifically, just sounded like a song they would do).
  4. So far nothing after Shapeshifter has come close to touching the songs on that album. That album was unreal.
  5. From the Light Up the Sky FB Page: Definitely a catchy song. Looking forward to hearing more.
  6. Well that was not what I was expecting based on Wake. It is interesting. Gonna have to listen to this one a few more times through to determine if I like it or not.
  7. That screaming is some straight outta Emery sound. I remember liking the single. Curious to check out the whole album.
  8. Secret and a Whisper... there is a band name I haven't heard in a while. Makes sense since you guys are from BC and SaW was also from BC. Good single! Looking forward to hearing more.
  9. I enjoyed TLYLTC but found that it was boring in some spots. This album is a real snoozer for me. Maybe 1 or 2 good songs. Not a good follow up album for them in my opinion. Pretty sure this is going to be a one listen through and done for me.
  10. Awesome. Hopefully the album can live up to how good the singles were.
  11. I liked Crooked Walls when I heard it on Dreambound. Looking forward to checking out the album.
  12. Yes Taylor did this album. He last did Matriarch with them. On a good sound system it isn't flat. I think what most people here are referring to as "the lows" or "flat" is the lack of gurth that say False Idol had on the recording. The lows are very present in the mix of this song. Just this song's mix is more well balanced. The reason that it is perceived as "flat" or the lack of "lows" is due to the fact that they tuned the guitars different, and are using different distortions and effects for the guitars versus say False Idol or Matriarch. I didn't love his Neon Mix. It was well balanced, but lacked the gurth that say Augment had. But Drift wasn't also well recorded either. But this song's mix does sound similar to his mix on Neon. My only gripe with his mix on this song would be that it is a little quiet. Overall I like how balanced it is. Sure it lacks the "gurth" of the guitars, but I'm ok with that. And this is one song. Maybe the gurth is there on other songs. I haven't listened to anything from VoM before Matriarch. So I went and fired up the Eclipse album. That mix is just ok. It is quite muddy. [ID] mix is awful. Thus making the point that I made above. It isn't the actual production that people say they like. It's the way that they recorded the guitars with the low tuning and gurthy effects that people like. Whereas the way Taylor mixed the guitars on this song sounds like the way he mixed the guitars on Neon. The perfect album I can use as a point of reference is The Death of Greeley Estates by Greeley Estates. If you listen to Straitjacket and you like the sound of the guitars then you like the "gurth" of the guitars. Because that is probably one of the worst produced and mixed albums of any band that doesn't record out of their garage that I have ever heard in my life. And I love Greeley. I wouldn't say that VoM has had a great produced/mixed album. But the one that I think has been the best produced/mixed for their sound is probably False Idol. I like the guitar sounds a touch better than I do on Matriarch.
  13. This album is actually pretty damn good. The best SWS album in quite a while. Strong contender for AOTY for me.
  14. The best songs on the album are the singles, The Line, and Fury. The rest of the album was just ok. Kind of a let down in my opinion. I was expecting a couple different sounding songs, but not nearly as many as there are on this album. Definitely a step back from how good Deadweight and Blueprints are.
