Meat I'm coming from a purely songwriting perspective with that statement. I'm not taking about riffs or solos etc. I unno, I feel that this is their most focused and mature songwriting-wise, and sounds like a band that has a clear vision of how they want to sound rather than seeing how many cool riffs they can manage to pack into a song a la Leviathan, or not knowing wtf they're doing like on Blood Mountain.

CtS is the closest in terms of songwriting imo

Band is good at mashing riffs together and that's what they shoulda stuck too, this is watered down schlock for the most part.

Yeah BM was hugely unfocused and suffered from a lack of direction.

the problem about the songwriting on here is that it's so boring, it's the same simple structures repeated throughout every song which makes the record such a monotonous listen after the first time, for me anyways

Plus no overall theme or 'storyline' to make it feel cohesive, seriously just an incoherent collection of average songs
