It's not bad. It's a bit more "core" than their older stuff, but the industrial effects kind of help it along.
Digging: August Burns Red - Phantom Anthem
Frankie Costanza is one sick drummer
is this a star wars reference?
The drummer is sick, the track is horrible though.
Pretty good song, but I hope the rest of the album is more outstanding as What Hell Is About and Face The Colossus are both excellent records. I am a bit concerned though that Shawter has seemingly lost his ability to scream well.
that was pretty appalling compared to anything from their back catalogue, not too confident about their new album now, hopefully there are better songs.
haha yeah since I know all of their other LP's too, the why-is-this-not-as-good-as-its-forerunners problem comes up here. On its own, this is a decent song, but when you compare it to stuff like Face The Colossus and What Hell Is About, it's inferior in every way. God, I hope they do not disappoint with the new one, since I'm all excited for it.
I might check them out just because of the Star Wars name.
I still have some faith in them. I'm more concerned about the larger metalcore influence than the weaker vocals (although I really like the rhythmic industrial parts).
I have a bunch of faith left in them too. Just, idk, I do really enjoy their sound, but I already heard bits and pieces of stagnation on that track. It's possible that the band tried to play it safe with the first new track, releasing a good but not great song, but it did sound a bit like a watered down b-side from Face The Colossus.
Still, I'm really looking forward to this and am hoping that this cut is one of the weaker ones on the album. The metalcore influence isn't too remarkable here either imo. It's there, but it's exactly what it needs to be -only a minor influence
I don't mind this song. Granted I've never been a huge fan of this band, but I wouldn't be disappointed if the rest of the album turned out like this track.
Dazzled! can't wait! :D
