  1. Dang that's a little disappointing to hear that anyone tried to have a hand in Eidola's track order, they are one of the most creative bands in the scene atm, they should just be let be to do whatever in my opinion. Also, surprisingly, beside's the singles, Calentamiento Global is one of the most listened to on the album at the moment. Even if the intention wasn't solely to capitalize on the spanish speaking market, I think they definitely knew it would. It sort of makes sense if Swan is looking at it from a marketing angle and trying to bring in the most new listeners, even if it's weird to hear that early for the existing DGD fanbase.
  2. Most bands in the genre used to put their more acceptable songs early on and their crazier out there stuff near the end of the album, lately I've seen a lot of the opposite. The flashy weird songs go close to beginning and the more acceptable stuff later (Shrezzer's album is a good example with the egyptian sounding and hip hop influenced tracks right out the gate). It's a weird shift that I personally am ok with since I listen to albums in full even if Im not thoroughly enjoying it, but I'm sure it's turned off a few people. It must have an upside though since it's happening more frequently.
  3. You'd probably like Ultraviolet by him a lot if you haven't listened to that one yet. He sorta releases in two different styles: one is more math rock and the other is more like the fusion of styles on this album. Ultraviolet is a lot like this one.
  4. I am dissapointed by only seeing a couple people saying I Am Abomination's newest. 1.) I Am Abomination - Passion II 2.) Blueshift - Voyager 3.) So Soon, The Truth - Were You Ever Really There? 4.) Galleons - Metropolis 5.) Corelia - New Wilderness (this shouldn't really even count, and it sucks the way the album got released, but man is it still good.) 6.) Dance Gavin Dance - Afterburner That's all I have heard so far that have a high chance of staying in the top 10. As far as EP's go: 1.) Inertia - Connexion (this is a must listen for fans of modern more melodic metalcore) 2.) Ever Eden - Illumine (super underrated and unique sounding metalcore) 3.) Tanajae - Half Moon (female fronted. instrumentals are FFO: Ben Rosett, Strawberry Girls, Chon) 4.) Nova Charisma - Exposition III
  5. Ben might be too ahead of the curve. This Neo-Soul, Math Rock, Future Bass combo he has is seriously unique. I'm glad Strawberry Girls is doing pretty well in the genre, but I hope his solo stuff blows up, because it deserves it. I feel like a lot of different audiences would listen to this stuff if he could just get that little popularity push. Can a massive pop/trap artist just sample his music already?
  6. Yea. I figured it meant it would be more in the style of Ben Rosett's solo stuff, but this is just a Strawberry Girls track lol. I don't know why they didn't just call it that.
  7. Zach Garren from Strawberry Girls + Ben Rosett is basically the best instrumental collab the genre could ask for as far as my personal tastes go, but this track is a little less than I was hoping for. I like it a lot, and it fits right at home with the Strawberry Girls discog, I just wish it had a little bit more of the plucky arps in Rosett's music all throughout the song. The intro had me really hyped for some arpy goodness, but then it turned into riffy goodness... If that makes sense. Still a great track.
  8. Someone on reddit just put up an oustanding mix/master
  9. Thank you for listing album covers for me to check out
  10. Kids bop my ass, this is an Adult Bop. Might as well have called it a remix. Edit: "Kids bop my ass" should never be quoted without context. This edit is to potentially save me from flac later, Im not talking about the audio format.
  11. I had to come back after multiple relistens. This album is insane. Imagine what could've been. This is such a bittersweet way for such a triumphant sounding album to come out. I can imagine if things had went accordingly going to see them and belting the mid section to Esper Voyage live with the whole crowd...
  12. Regardless of how this whole situation was handled, these guys are phenomenal songwriters. Three songs in and this is incredible. They should've been massive. Edit: Demo or not, mix being bad or not, after three tracks this is on course for one of my favorite releases so far this year. I wasn't even a massive fan of the EP. I love all the instruments and synths and 'stuff' they are bringing in. The mix and somewhat not fully recorded bits actually just makes it feel like a proggy classic rock album.
  13. This is REALLY unique. Those screams are unlike anything I've heard, I'm still trying to decide if I like them, but I can definitely say he isn't trying to copy anybody else. The cleans are sort of post-hardcore (anthony green, donovan melero, etc. but with a bit more raspy edge) Edit: the raspy cleans remind me of Silent Planet a bit
  14. Loving it. Does anyone know any details on how many of these they are releasing? Or if they are gonna combine them into LP's to sell later on? I would be interested in a physical copy to listen to in the car, but I dont want to have switch disks every 3 songs.
  15. One in a Million for me. HALLELUJAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaAaaaaaah
  16. I've checked and this is actually a problem with the official files for some reason. On both sites I usually get flac from Born To Fail is all screwed up. Hopefully DGD gets out a fixed version on the sites soon
  17. I just grabbed the 320 for that one track for now, It could've been a mistake on the official upload to streaming services. If not we are just waiting until tomorrow or until one of the staff fix it. Dgd had audio errors before with one of their instrumental albums, so who knows.
  18. Just a warning. Audio is corrupt on Born To Fail and skips over a section for anyone grabbing the flac version.
  19. Time to really dive in. Thanks for having the lossless up so quick. Can't wait for my bundle to come. Edit: so many guitar parts I'm noticing that I didn't before. There's a few parts the 128 sounded like bent notes but are actually runs and sweep picking. I'm also listening on much better headphones now so that couod be part of it.
  20. Dug the singles a lot, and Dreambound usually picks up consistent bands. Looking forward to listening to this
  21. I'm pretty sure you'll agree with me, but for others reading... All genres are made up. Swancore has cemented itself as a "real" genre in my eyes. There's more than enough bands consistently making the sound and a massive love for the sound from plenty of fans. I've also heard plenty of people that like post-hardcore say they dont like swancore, which points to another big factor in defining a genre: A clear and distinct seperation of sound. A lot of people will like both obviously, but they are different enough to split peoples tastes into more of one or the other.
  22. Ways of Sorrow is honestly my favorite song so far this year. I would pay hundreds for a full collaboration project between IAA and Erra at this point. Even if it's just a few songs on an EP it would be insane. I seriously hope they work together again.
  23. I had never heard them previously and just found them yesterday, and I love that album. They stole a bit of the hype fromm the DGD release for sure for me. I'm gonna have to wait and see if their release sticks as much as every DGD release has for me first.
