Gnosis was boring when I first listened to it but this is just incredible and Chris Baretto's voice is certainly the cherry on top. Kinda reminds of Michael Jackson at some points.

How the hell is Lamb of God considered Groove metal when these guys are clearly blowing them out of

the water in that departement!

it's all subjectivity. these guys identify as groove so that's what i call em.

They definitely have a unique sound to build off of.

I actually really enjoyed the 3/4 part of the album I listened to. They remind me of Periphery a little of course (singer), but I like that Monuments instrumental have a lot of melody. I also like the vocals a lot. I think the new singer fits really well.

Was excited for Juggernaut, can't imagine how it'll top this though. Absolutely mind-blowing album, loved Gnosis, but this is a massive improvement, just need to save the pennies so I can go see them live.

I'm glad to see all of the positivity here! wasn't sure how sputnik would like something like this, even though Gnosis seemed well received enough

i'm seriously enjoying this album. i'll probably drop it down to a 4 but no less.



Chris seriously carries this album. such a better fit over their previous vocalist.

Uneven Structure raised the bar and these guys just don't got what it takes.

After a few listens I have to agree, Uneven Structure are doing it for me.
This has that weedly weedly Periphery sound. First song is fucking sick though.

'Kinda reminds of Michael Jackson at some points.'

MJ is actually Chris' biggest influence on singing so that isn't a coincidence. Garden of Sankhara screams MJ.

Saga City would have to be my fave, those last 30 seconds or so are just crushing.
