Damn, Black Fish, Chronos The Destroyer, and Pharmacist are all like 5/5 songs.



I think this might be my favorite album from them. Been pondering moving it up to a 4.5

I know the songs aren't THAT old but I feel like I have too much nostalgia with their previous to ever let this top it. Every time I listen to this album it grows on me more and more tho so maybe in tiiimmmmeeee

I feel like I should listen to these guys to support the Swancore movement but I just haven't gotten around to it.

I dunno, Love Always has been my favorite for a while, but some kind of shift has been happening when I was going through their albums over the last week or so.

does it sound like Dance Gavin Dance? yes? than it's Swancore. as in Will Swan, the guitarist of DGD. it also helps if you're signed to Blue Swan Records which is Will Swan's label and pretty much only features bands like DGD in style.

....SWANCORE

The only comparison I could make for this to DGD is the somewhat over-the-top lead guitar stuff in pretty much every song.



And that's still kind of stretching it.

I saw that the other day, too. At least they have a label now. They barely made their goal on the kickstarter for this, so hopefully they won't have to worry about that again for the time being.

I seriously had thought they were signed to Blue Swan the entire time seeing as they were always getting co-signs and touring with Stolas.
