  1. This band definitely took its cue from BMTH's Sempiternal
  2. Don't several Middle Eastern bands call their music "oriental metal" (see: Orphaned Land, Melechesh when they don't use the term Mesopotamian Metal) and Chthonic call their music "Orient Metal".
  3. I actually have the CD now, and in the notes it says "additional music on track 2, additional music and lyrics on tracks 7 and 9 by T. Salvador" in the most footnote-y way possible. So it sounds like those are tracks where he wrote some of the original music which was replaced, but they obviously couldn't erase the lyrics Wayne sung. Anyway 4 of the songs (Terminator Oscillator, Accelerate, My Destruction and Otsego Placebo) are just Xer0 on vocals and they're pretty solid. It puts them in a good position if they want to carry on after Vol 2 comes out, but I'd hope they change the name if they do. I always wanted them to go back to calling themselves Wisconsin Death Trip, their original name.
  4. I know it's a touchy topic but will you ask about the extent of Tripp's input (e.g. did any riffs remain or is he only credited because Wayne's vocal melodies may have been influenced by Tripp's riffs which were subsequently replaced so he won't see any money from the album)? As far as I'm aware, all that remains from the original recordings are Wayne's vocals and the band re-wrote all the music without hearing what was originally recorded. And I think that's for the best.
  5. Yeah that's why I think it would work nicely. An homage to the origins of the band while still being its own entity.
  6. The artwork isn't the most professional job and that'd put me off most times but it's actually a decent album.
  7. I still think they should change their name if they press on with Edsel/Xer0. Could call themselves Wisconsin Death Trip after the first album.
  8. Is this a song about someone's anime waifu
  9. FFO Evanescence, The Birthday Massacre, etc
  10. I get more of a My Ticket Home vibe. It's the former lead singer from The Defiled (British industrial metalcore) now known as Lee Villain, along with Luke Johnson (who played in a bunch of bands like Amen and No Devotion)
  11. As said above, they reverse engineered the vocals so they can keep Chester on the record, but re-wrote the music around it (kind of like what Static-X are doing with old Wayne Static vocal tracks). Apparently only 2 of the songs on here sound anything like their original versions.
  12. That's probably because they had to reverse engineer Chester's vocals from the original recordings and remaster them, on account of him being dead.. So it's very early Chester Bennington, before he really took off as a vocalist.
  13. You sure those tracks are over 10 mins? Cos the dl has them at only a minute and a half each.
  14. Patrick Stump guesting on "New Music Sucks" to sing about how much Fall Out Boy sucks.
  15. Boomer rock. Perfect for people who hate the blacks, gays, Muslims and Chinese.
  16. Hip hop seems to have a fascination with extreme metal aesthetic lately. This album artwork looks like it belongs to a Southern Lord metal group.
  17. So why is this the only major release that can be out legally for over a day and not be updated with full 320kbps? Was the deluxe edition not released yesterday?
  18. If I don't like it can I waterboard them? If I like it, can I?
  19. so is this worth investigating?
  20. It's decent but Korn managed to make it sound heavier without the unnecessary screaming or drum fills. That drummer REALLY likes his fills.
  21. Thought I'd check out Alpha Wolf's new EP cos I'm a sucker for nu metalcore. First line I hear "YOU'RE JUST A PUSSY-" stopped and skipped. Sorry but those lyrics are just too intellectual for me.
  22. I would say it has killer vocals but he never got that far so I'll just call them attempted killer.
