  1. Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying! This sounds so good.
  2. The mix on this is just absolutely incredible. I'm just going to assume this is Will Putney until I see otherwise.
  3. Black Tongue's sense of songwriting is worlds better than this boring chugfest, particularly on their last 2 albums.
  4. 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.
  5. This sounds exactly how I thought it would. Hopefully the other songs are better.
  6. Okay, I had to let this sit after listening to it a few times this morning. I LOVE this band and all of their output. The Great Collapse was, well, great, but I didn't think it was as good as the nearly-perfect Absolute Hope Absolute Hell or as solid as Hellbound. Those things being said.. This album is really, REALLY good. The first day of listening makes me think it's better than TGC, but I'm not sure if it beats AHAH. Maybe it does, but that will require more listening. The tracks are all incredibly well written. Each song has its own identity and something uniquely awesome about it. I feel like the tracks also rely less on chugging than the previous record did, which was an issue I took with a few of the tracks on The Great Collapse. While this album doesn't have choruses that are quite as infective as Heads Will Hang and Black Mammoth, I think it still beats it straight up in terms of songwriting. The only minor complaint I might have, if it's even a complaint, is I wish they actually took even more risks with their sound. Napalm Dreams is definitely a standout and is currently my favorite track alongside No Man is Without Fear, and really demonstrates that they can work with different sounds and still pull it off. I can't wait to dive into this record more when I have more free time to really digest it.
  7. I noticed that when I first listened to it that it sounded really "busy" at parts that made it difficult for anything sound really impactful, but I've since listened to the track using different apps and headphones and that effect seems to have subsided. So, I dunno.
  8. Okay, so after a bunch of listens: this song is solid. Not incredible, but definitely still good. Based on the only review of the album that I've read and a brief discussion with the reviewer, it seems to be that the NON-singles are much better than the singles for this album. Even an OKAY song from Fit for an Autopsy is still much, much better written than the majority of the output from nearly all other "deathcore" bands. So, yeah, the hype train continues.
  9. Meh. Sounds like everything off the last album.
  10. Ugh, what this band has become is such a fucking travesty, especially after creating masterpieces like The Blackening and Unto the Locust.
  11. This is such a dumb take for so many reasons that it's not even worth getting into
  12. Okay, I just listened to it. Parts of it I really liked, but I don't know how I feel about the chorus yet; I appreciate them trying something new, and it kind of sounds like Cattle Decapitation, but I'm not sure if I like it.
  13. I can't listen to this for another half hour but I already know this is going to be AOTY for me. Jealous of everyone that's already heard it.
  14. Almost through my first listen and I'm finding it pretty underwhelming.
  15. Okay I'm only 7 tracks in and I think every track I've heard is better than Unsainted and Solway Firth. I really, really dig A Liar's Funeral and Critical Darling so far, even moreso than Nero Forte
  16. This is easily my most anticipated album of this year. They're a gem in a genre that's so overwhelmingly stale.
  17. This is about as generic as generic gets. Yikes.
  18. For those talking about Sumerian, I'm pretty sure the label had little to no input on the band's creative process. Anyway, the kids these days would say this song fucking SLAPS.
  19. > says a band should terminate their professional careers because he doesn't like their music > their fans are toxic lol ok
