Fuck. I wish they would leave Architects out of it. Why the hell are they touring with Atreyu anyway?

prediction:

1 and 4 will be great, 2 will be very bad, 3 will be passable, 5 will be fine, but will receive a lot of hate.

I'm not understanding you. The first time I get an album, I'll listen to it properly of course, but after that it's shuffle. There are a few exceptions every now and then of course.

As long as they're not doing the vocals it should be okay.

What I'm saying is, certain albums set certain moods. Same as songs. Let's say Degausser by Brand New is gonna put me in a shitty mood, but then I listen to Mice and Gods by Clutch and feel all awesome again. Why roller coaster around like that when I can just listen to the entire album to go with how I'm feeling, instead of skipping a bunch of songs to find a manly/cocky song to fit the mood. Or you could make a bunch of playlists but that just isn't worth the effort imo.

Ah, I see exactly what you mean. The thing about me is that my mood is never really affected by what I'm listening to. I can go from 80 bpm to 300 bpm no problem.

I know I'm one of the few people who liked Congregation of the Damned so I have some hope that this will be good. However, I do remember Lead Sails so I will not be getting my hopes up too high.

death grip is their best and last good cd.


I listened through Lead Sails this other day and I thought it had more good tracks than I remembered. Might raise my rating for it actually, I mean it's mostly brought down by the filler tracks that didn't work

blow and the epic cover suck so hard but LSPA has some great ones

can't happen here, title (and a) track, honor, doomsday, falling down...




obviously deathgrip is better, though. (and Curse is clearly the best)

cover of epic


oh god that one is so terrible. I remembered Becoming the Bull as being bad as well but idk man it's got some nice riffs. And blow is fun since I like cheese

(and Curse is clearly the best)

Nothing really essential, it's probably the bands just wanting to do something different, just for their own enjoyment, I guess
