Thought Styles might enjoy this.
Digging: Gates - Bloom and Breathe
I'm interested to see what he'll think of it.
only checked out one of there albums and didnt really care for it, gonna have to hear this song though
it is an ok song, but it's only ok. The bridge is great, and the verse riff is rather cool (liking the start-stop effect) but I'm not a big fan of the chorus. Vocals are a major step up from Vengeance though, thank god, as Elias' "macho" voice was kinda irritating. I love his vocals otherwise, but on VEngeance they flat out sucked.
I don't know if it will be on the new album, but on their myspace they have a song called "Shadow" up (been there for a while) and that song kicks some major ass. People should check that song. Sooooo good.
It's a step above average, I think Nonpoint is capable of better.
So this is new Nonpoint, huh?
Digging: Ash Borer - Cold of Ages
i definitely didn't hate this, but i'm on a fence. Elias has slightly improved his vocals, but i always thought he had very decent clean vocals too, so here's hoping he exercises them. good ending too
also, am i going taking crazy pills... or does he sound a shitload like Chad Gray of Mudvayne in several parts of the song?
or is chad gray just featured in the song
Since the members of Mudvayne are producers, this sounds, well, like Mudvayne, which isn't entirely a bad thing in case of these guys.
Digging: Clipping - CLPPNG
yeah that certainly is Chad Grey in some parts, because Elias could never cast out that kind of a voice.
