have you heard any of their other stuff? this isnt the best place to start but since youre seeing them as a "band" instead of the collective i guess its not bad of a starting point

"they played Ectasian when I saw them last"

that song is beastly. basically entire Precambrian is.
this is great too, but Precambrian is masterpiece tier[2]

I just started listening to Precambrian pretty recently, but this almost sounds like a completely different band when compared to that album.

I thought I read they have had a decent amount of lineup changes over the years, tho, so that might actually be the case.

yeah i don't like the new vocalist that much. got really turned off by a couple tracks on helio. heard the instrumental of this and it jams. then i listened with vox and wasn't as thrilled. gonna check a few times before the concert

its mainly cause before they were a collective ie 20+ members playing on the album while on helio they decided to change to a 4/5 person band whatever they are

Ohhhhh....

So, that's why the dropped the 'Collective' part, then? That makes sense.

i'm glad they dropped the 'collective' part of their name. never did like the sound of that. The Ocean just sounds way cooler

I beg to differ on that one Koffing. Loic was far less than stellar here in Portugal, unlike the rest of the band and the other bands playing that night, tbh

if atlas moth and silver snakes are also playing (as they did for me), give their shit a listen, theyre both worth a spin

both are relatively unknown i suppose, but The Atlas Moth makes super sludgy metal with post influences, Silver Snakes is post hardcore. They havent made anything even close to what The Ocean and StS have, but they both put on tight shows

If their set wasn't like 25 mins at summer slaughter they probably would have varied it more. Could have gotten playing the album as a whole out of their system. They still put on a good show even if I would have liked to hear some older stuff.
