  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.
  15. This sounds exactly how I thought it would. Hopefully the other songs are better.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Meh. Sounds like everything off the last album.
  20. Ugh, what this band has become is such a fucking travesty, especially after creating masterpieces like The Blackening and Unto the Locust.
  21. This is such a dumb take for so many reasons that it's not even worth getting into
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
