  1. This song is absolutely incredible from start to finish.
  2. In the first interview he gave after his departure he said: This seems to confirm what we're thinking. I think he later backed off a bit from these comments, but they still seem pretty revealing. Another thought: I think they should really try to go with a different producer for the next album. They've been with Josh since Wrath, and I understand that having a great working relationship with a producer is a big factor, but I think they would really benefit from stepping outside the box. It's still crazy to me that they had Machine produce their two most heralded albums and then never went back to him. I miss Chris's poppy snare with that delicious ring to it.
  3. It seems especially appropriate since Art Cruz's drumming on this sounds like a stale imitation of Chris's, and I don't even necessarily think that Chris is a better drummer than Art. This entire album is just a huge bummer for me personally. Ashes was a pivotal album for getting me into metal, and my dad and I bonded a lot over their music and going to Lamb of God gigs in the Sacrament and Wrath years, back when our relationship was much better than it is now. Having the band sound like such a shell of its former self just seems so much more disappointing than it logically should. I wonder if the quality of music had anything to do with Chris leaving the band.
  4. It sounds like an algorithm was fed a bunch of random Lamb of God riffs and tasked with making an album. It's just okay.
  5. It's really a shame that this is what had to become of this album. They wrote a ninety-minute double album chocked full of diverse elements that maintains high-quality songwriting throughout, which is truly an impressive feat for a band that was this young and new at the time. I'm certain had this album ever been completed properly it would have been a bit hit in the metal/prog world. Instead, they got ghosted by their main songwriter who is apparently holding the files necessary to complete the album hostage and it had to come out in this form. Yeah, years of silence definitely wasn't the best way to deal with the situation, but this is still somewhat tragic nonetheless.
  6. I know I've said this a bunch of times, but this Putney mix SLAPS.
  7. The guitar tone in this is fucking good
  8. Not a bad song, but still nothing that strays from what they've done for the last few albums. I think this was better than Checkmate but not better than Memento Mori. I really hope there's some oddballs on this album, but it's looking like this is just gonna be a continuation of the last two albums.
  9. I'm glad Zach is getting some recognition via features for how fucking powerful his voice is
  10. I've been trying to like this band for a decade. Their live performance is great - I've seen them a number of times, but none of their songs seems to stick for some reason. It's like all the riffs sound good alone, in a vacuum, but the whole is always less than the parts. I'll keep trying though.
  11. Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying! This sounds so good.
  12. The mix on this is just absolutely incredible. I'm just going to assume this is Will Putney until I see otherwise.
  13. Black Tongue's sense of songwriting is worlds better than this boring chugfest, particularly on their last 2 albums.
  14. We need a new All Shall Perish record. EDIT: someone said this album is missing some "oomph" I think, and they're right. Maybe the guitars are missing some low end or the bass needs to punch more or something, but the mix doesn't really slap.
