Not overly impressed but it's heavier than their last single. Chorus is pretty catchy.

pretty great song, better than anything except the title track of the last album, and quite a bit of STD

what a bunch of damn pussies you all are. I am so sick and tired of looking at the posts on here for every new song that comes out from a metal band. All you do is bitch and complain. Like any of you could do any better than any of these bands. This song is pretty damn good too. No matter what comes out, you will all cry like little babies and post bitching comments. Stop posting shit if you are gonna cry about it.

Thank goodness it has different production to STAGD. Sounds like STD part 2, not too bad. Album should be better than expected...

@Darkwatch025
I'm sorry the site's userbase has usually negative opinions about more mainstream metal acts. The song is great for what it is, make of that what you will, but out of the vocal users that are metalheads on sputnik a lot of the teenage users are more into metalcore and those that are a bit older are more into death and black metal. Stuff like this gets slagged all the time from heavy music fans everywhere because it treads a middle ground between rock and metal and if it has the misfortune of being from a band aligned at one point in their career with Melodic Death Metal that brings out even more bitching. You complaining about other's opinions isn't going to change that because people are going to look at posts like the one above and think you're some over-zealous super fan and write you of just like that. So take the high road and don't bitch about bitching. Just like what you like, because who the fuck is anyone on the internet to tell you that your taste is wrong. It is what it is, leave it at that and have fun listening to some cool tunes.

Had no hopes for this album but if this song is any indication it sounds like 3.5-4 material.

Am I the only one hearing a lot more dynamic riffing as compared to their last two releases?

Anyway, I like it a lot. Should be a anywhere between a 3.0-4.0

Finally, Soilwork is back! honestly, I didn't hate Exile, but I didn't like it either. Now, I know a lot of people hated Stabbing The Drama, but I dug it and it is definitely a catchy album. This new song is most certainly great!

It's not in B minor, which is quite uncommon for a Soilwork song. I very much like it, though.

Chorus sounds like something Christian Älvestam could've done on his recent S.45 project. Sounds Pretty good actually. Only other song I can bare from this band is the title track of Stabbing The Drama.

Reminded me of something off Stabbing the Drama which is a really good thing.

Pretty much why Adam is the best staff member around here (and Chan too ; ) ).

i dunno guys...it was pretty good but im not convinced about the album yet. i'm predicting 3-3.5 at best, when they have the potential for 4 or even 4.5. i sincerely hope im wrong

About half of FNF is amazing and about half is average. Other albums are somewhere in between but more consistent, except Sworn to a Great Divide, which is pretty much just average except for a couple of standout tracks. I'm not sure what to think about this new song yet. I do like the chorus very much, though.

So catchy in fact, that RR ended up on one of the Headbanger's Ball discs, which is what got me interested in these guys to begin with. Fuckin MTV.

Beginning riff sounds like something from Lamb of God's Wrath. Might be Contractor? Can't remember exactly, but they sound similar.

Hey, that wasn't terrible! Riffs were good, harsh vox weren't very harsh and clean vox weren't amazing, but a solid song.

I actually HAD noticed the Lamb of God resemblance. I thought it sounded a little more like something from Sacrament, although I'm probably not the right person to judge.

^^I guess, but they did to guitars the same thing Lars Ulrich did to drums in St. Anger. I hate that "tin" sound in StaGD. Probably the only reason I couldn't force myself to like it that much

This song is excellent. Soilwork appears to back to their elite form, although their last album was only a slight
deviation from this refined and polished sound. Appears witchers had made a significant impact upon his return and
speeds vocals sound incredible. Very promising so far.
Drums are the best Ive ever heard, they possess groove while managing to remain technical and fast.

5/5

Finally got around to listening to this all the way through. I've decided that I really like the chorus, because there's an interesting variation in harmonic rhythm. Vocals are just as strong as they were last album (which was really the only improvement in the last album to begin with), which is a plus.

If the rest of the album is like this, it would probably get a 3.5 or a 4 from me.
