  2. Just an alright 6/10 metalcore album, relatively inoffensive but in 2018 with cutting edge acts from said genre emerging, you'd want a bit more from them considering what they've shown they can do. Carlile is a huge miss, he was the beating heart and soul of this band and a real focal point
  3. Code Orange - Forever Converge - The Dusk in Us The Black Dahlia Murder - Nightbringers While She Sleeps - You Are We Power Trip - Nightmare Logic Darkest Hour - Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora SikTh - The Future in Whose Eyes? Employed to Serve - The Warmth of a Dying Sun Enter Shikari - The Spark Creeper - Eternity in Your Arms
  4. still not brilliant by any means and doesn't reach anywhere near the dizzying heights of their earlier work, but a perfectly formidable album and a good return to form after the trainwrecks that were their last two albums
  5. lyrically questionable throughout particularly on the song "If There's Nothing to See" and I can certainly do without some of the choruses repeating over and over three times throughout a song, but it's definitely a step up from the last album (that's not saying much though as the last album was god awful), a lot heavier (would you believe me if I said that "Encoder" goes full on djent at points) and more varied, for better or worse (Promise Me for example sounds like a top 40 electronic song, whereas Encoder is half issues style turntable scratching and loops, then goes djent with the guitar tone). the pre-released singles are the very clear highlights of the album, a few forgettable ones like Two Hands but overall ok.
  6. as a working class boy with standard sony earbuds as his go-to listening equipment, 256 kbps mp3 is more than enough for me
  7. or maybe Chris Motionless has blatantly ripped him off since around the Infamous album cycle? think about it, Manson's been around for over 20 years
  8. disconnecting myself from the lyrical themes (as tbh I have done for a lot of their more socially/politically driven content), this album bangs instrumentally
  9. had minimal expectations before listening, considering they're one of those teenie boppy kerrang bands but jesus christ this is rubbish, at least the last album had hints of decent instrumentation but this is just an even more watered down version of what tonight alive were doing on their last album. insipid and devoid of anything worthwhile or memorable
  10. was never completely sold on these guys, this album has definitely made me re-evaluate my view of them however. punishing as fuck all throughout \m/
  11. this and new malevolence being released on the same day, safe to say hardcore over here is thriving
  12. agreed entirely. instrumentally/sonically it doesn't do a whole lot wrong but definitely forgettable for the most part, as is common among the sort of bands these are grouped with. few sections here and there which show they have some quality in them but are often brief and not capitalised on. similarly to you the main thing that throws me off is how juvenile and "spooky wooky" the lyrics are, feel as though this album would be a lot better if they took themselves a bit more seriously. some obvious lines I'm sure you'll have picked up on which are just borderline uncomfortable to listen to.
