I can not be held responsible for adding to something that spiraled off an article in a christian metalcore band thread in which I didn't even post


You can't be held responsible for something you've done (regardless of what that something might have been)? I mean... what???

Also, agree with Gyro. And what's so confusing about calling this a regression? They made some good albums, one of which pushed beyond the boundaries of the whole "modern/mainstream Metalcore" genre, and now they've regressed back to standard cliches

I'm going to have to agree with vada. Constellations brought their melodies to a new level for me, and Messengers (big trouble in little china) is just raw energy with driving hooks, but this album really brought them into their own for me. The vocals are produced amazingly, the punk influence is more apparent than ever, the melodies and hooks are catchy, the tone is maintained throughout the album, and the breakdowns are more creative. There are a few missteps, the whole PSA, spoken word bit is a touch flow breaking and out of place IMO. Overall, great metalcore release.

I feel like it goes without saying, but the musicians are also clearly at the top of their game here.

Yeah I don't get it. I like all their past work, even Leveler, even though it's easily their weakest
album, and I don't think any of them are on the same level as this... like at all. I might like some
aspects of other albums that this one doesn't have but as a whole this wins.

It's an improvement on Leveler (but that was never going to be hard), but this tanks when compared to Messengers and Constellations. And I consider it a regression when it almost drops the inventiveness of the latter (even though Constellations wasn't exactly inventive, but it was less cliched that most of the stuff out there)

Fucking opinions man
