I guess i'll be the first one here to say album is gonna rule
holy piss yes
Digging: Magnolia Electric Co - Trials and Errors
Kick ass song. I dont think i can handle this much awesomeness in one weekend.
Digging: Captain, We're Sinking - The Future Is Cancelled
so good. got my pre-order in last week, so stoked.
good song, better than the other two. i iz essssited
Digging: Self Defense Family - Try Me
nice tie into travels with the 'forgiver forgetter' line
Song is gooood.
everything this band does is golden
well I thought they'd have a lot more synth by now
...and the forum collectively creams.
think i'll just wait for the whole album to listen, but from what everyone is saying I am stoked for this
At least listen to Dear Father for christ sake.
oh goddammit SUCH A COCKTEASE
Holy jizz! best new song yet!
pretty solid, but none of their bests
i agree with clash. its pretty good, but from the 3 tracks heard so far, i dont think this will top Lost Ground.
still really good though!
2011 is like a flood of good music so far god damn.
Digging: MondreM.A.N. - They Say I Struggle Rap
i'm going to try to reserve judgement until i hear the album as a whole, but i'm not entirely won over this. i prefer dear father and i don't mind
This actually IS the Bullshit Sickness.
I love the tie-in to Travels it has.
Digging: Childish Gambino - Because The Internet
I heard this yesterday it is damn good. Counting down the days till their album drops.
vocals sound a little more desperate.
think he changes his vocal tones for each character....it was most vibrant for travels, more monotonous for lost ground, and much more desperate for this
hmm, if thats what hes doing thats pretty fuckin cool.
hahah i hope it is because that makes him even more of a boss
oh hell yes
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
The wait for this album is...
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Digging: Leonard Cohen - Songs Of Love And Hate
AOTY, hands down
^ i dunno bout that
Defeater kill me.
Yeah this seriously didn't floor me.
Not bad by any means at all, still excellent. It's just my pants are inexplicably not shitted, that's all.
I'm thinking this and Manchester Orchestra will contend for aoty.
YEAR OF THE OSIRIS
AINT SEEN NO GERMANS FOR DAYS
I AINT NO FORGIVER FORGETTER!
song was pretty good.
So happy I preordered this, the book is going to be awesome.
puttin this on repeat
hasn't gotten old yet
fucking hell the wait for this album has sucked so bad
Album needs to hurry up and leak.
Wow, this is going to be a really good album.
Song is growing on me for sure. Just pre-ordered, so excited.
$31 to pre-order though? Fuck that, I'll wait for the show.
I have a prediction for Defeater's next album after Sleepless Nights:
it will be desperate vocals over angry guitar and the concept will be about early 20th Century America.
Oh hey, did I get it right?
Not sure if I'm going to be able to make the show though. Fucking uni.
I thought you were going to the sydney one? which is on a saturday.
I'm closer to Newcastle so I was going to that, so I may or may not go to the Sydney show, not sure yet.
Hope I'll have the opportunity to see these guys once in Germany. That'd be awesome.
Song is kickass.
Ahh. Me and my friend are thinking, go to the Sydney gig and then roadtrip up to Newcastle. Good plan, no?
Sounds a great plan. Are you much of a fan of the band they're touring with, Miles Away? I've only had a quick listen to their stuff.
Their latest album is pretty damn solid although not top of the crop, but I'm not hugely keen on their older stuff.
The vocals are reminiscent of Amia Venera Landscape for me.
And I love their vocals, so hell yes.
Digging: City Of Ifa - Self Titled
Going to see them in Nottingham in 6 days
Guys... this band is good, but there shouldn't be this much fap over it.
Digging: Candy Claws - Ceres And Calypso In The Deep Time
I'm glad someone with authority has cleared that up for us.
I am no authority, just stating my opinion.
First thing I have heard by them, and I like it alot.
Your opinion =/= fact. Yeah.
Opinions can be stated in fact form.
user wolfhorde has made the discovery that opinions aren't facts
Can't wait to give it a listen
it's everything i expected and more
omg mediafire needed
its just noise
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
Thanks for recognizing my greatness.
yeah i like this band and all but all the wanking over them is kinda killing them slightly for me.
Digging: Weekend Nachos - Still
EVERYONE ELSES OPINION ABOUT A BAND BUGS ME SO I DON'T LIKE THEM ANYMORE
your logic is incredible
lol yeah pretty retarded view of things
yea hes dumb
you guys sure are butthurt about that post hahaha
it just annoys me when people overhype things.
i'm butthurt about how much of a retard you seem to be
not 'butthurt', just feel a bit sorry for you
this is the one time when having to like a page to hear a song is completely fine with me.
half way in, new album slays hard
sites with the album leaked are crashing hahaha
its like a mix between travels and lost ground
did u dl an rar file? cause i can only do zip and as of now only rar type files are up
"EVERYONE ELSES OPINION ABOUT A BAND BUGS ME SO I DON'T LIKE THEM ANYMORE
your logic is incredible"
Maybe he's a she.
Dude, just get WinRAR.
just get winrar Narshh
halfway through and this is easily the best thing they've done so far
jhkl;asdasj ight for this band i will
just finished the album
ill give it another 3 listens before i rate but i think it might be the best thing they've released
Its amazing, I love how they ended the album with the acoustic tracks, but the hardcore section of the album is sooooooo good
i need to shower and do laundry but all i want to do is sit here and listen to defeater
Watching this download is killing me. I want it now.
Is it everything I wanted and more?
Digging: Mount Eerie - Pre-Human Ideas
yeah it's seriously amazing
on second listen
better than travels
thats crazy talk
oh and waves crash, clouds roll might be my new fave dftr song
i'm thinking the cut off at the end of white oak doors might be intentional guys
like the end of sopranos
"i'm thinking the cut off at the end of white oak doors might be intentional guys"
Yeah, they'll probably release the second half tomorrow. I have to believe it!
So Xeno how are you enjoying it?
no look at the lyrics
at that second the character's hit by a train
maybe i'm overanalyzing but this is blue balling me like hell =(
Haven't started it yet.
I really want to pre-order the album now that I see it comes with that book, interesting.
someone with balls should figure out the chronology for the entire story. meaning from ed&sn/travels together, intertwined, from both viewpoints
i wonder if maybe the book i pre-ordered the other day with the other stuff will have such explanations or w/e. idek what it's supposed to be
the cut off white oaks is definitely not intentional....i think the copy of the album were getting isn't complete....based off the track list, what i just dl'd is missing EMPTY DAYS at the beginning and SLEEPLESS NIGHTS after white oaks...is it just me or is it like that for all of u?
........are you retarded or something
i asked james gandolfini he said everythin is kosher
two thumbs up
ebert & roeper
fucking awesome. so excited for it
@uhhkris um no lol... heres the tracklist
Warm Blood Rush
Waves Crash, Clouds Roll
No Kind of Home
Quiet the Longing
White Oak Doors
I Don't Mind
, all i asked was if u guys were missing EMPTY DAYS and SLEEPLESS NIGHTS also..
THE HARDCORE SIDE IS CALLED EMPTY DAYS
THE ACOUSTIC SIDE IS CALLED SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
THERE ARE NO SONGS CALLED EMPTY DAYS OR SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
CATCH MY DRIFT?
o damn haha i gotcha now i guess i sounded retarded to someone who already knew that hahaha....now i can listen to the album for the first time w/o fearing that its incomplete
The acoustic side isnt as bad as I was expecting
it's got bite like barq's baby
the acoustic side rules face
Album rules so far. Haven't gotten to the acoustic part of the album yet but I hope the songs are better than "I don't mind" which was lame.
They were ;)
i don't get the hate for i don't mind
i fucking love it
Album is really good so far but I'm nervous for when I get to White Oak Doors.
Digging: Leprous - Tall Poppy Syndrome
I think i might like this more then travels idk its just really gooood..
k so yeah this is fucking incredible.... did anyone get a version of White Oak Doors without the cut to silence at the end though? I can't imagine they'd leave it like that on purpose
pretty sure they did
holy fuck blueballed so hard
Hey, if anyone doesn't get this already, if you listen to the lyrics, it's obvious that this album is from the side of the brother that dies in Travels.
Just so you know.
Or rather, the one that the narrator kills in Travels
There are the lyrics/story
holy fuckin shitt the brother had it even worse then the narrator from travels...this is amazing
'Quiet The Longing'...
His vocals remind me a bit of The Saddest Landscape in this.
i'm butthurt about how much of a retard you seem to be
not 'butthurt', just feel a bit sorry for you
kris your fanboyism is a little disheartening...
if you guys checked my ratings or even read all my comments you'd know i really do like defeater. i just said that the fanboyism for them is getting annoying.
i'll be the first to admit that i'm a HUGE FLAMING FANBOY
i'm just saying that letting other peoples love for an album affect your view is fucking retarded
im gonna get so flamed when i do the review for this
i'd love to see a negative review for this tbh
just to neg it so hard
nah you write good reviews and i wanna hear why you don't like it nearly as much as me
the only way I could see a negative review for this band working is to attack the fanboyism. no way you could rip apart the band itself because what's shitty about it?
dont get me wrong, its sounds really good.
but the casual listener will most likely get really confused at the whole interlocking stories/themes on their albums
I started off that way when I first heard of defeater. then I saw them live after really getting into travels and was hooked. until recently I didn't even know of the flowing story. I just thought the songs were about different things in story form but regardless I loved the lyrics so much.
the lyrics arent even nothing to fap about tbh. just the story is kinda cool
Fuck the casual listener then? The band isn't aimed at them.
"the lyrics arent even nothing to fap about tbh."
double negative they totally are something to fap about js
i thought travels was excellent but it didnt make me jizz or anything. but EDSN has officially made Defeater one of my favorite bands now.
kicking over the hornets nest
fuck you faggot, if you dont like this gtfo. we dont take kindly to your kind round hur.
oh shit this leaked already?
aight will make final judgement by tomorrow
WE AWAIT THE VERDICT.
I'm not so much of a fanboy that I can't take criticism to the band, but it actually has to make sense. Criting them for having a continuous story is like saying The Two Towers is bad because it continues where The Fellowship left off.
dude lotr sucked so bad
That wasn't my point but k.
look what happened to gollum when he stopped listening to defeater
how did I not listen to this band before now holy shit
Fuck I was at work all day. Getting right noww.
Not disappointed in the slightest. Might end up being my favourite hardcore album.
The story just gets so much more tragic. And the ending to White Oak Doors....powerful stuff.
So, we've decided it's supposed to cut out like it does? Or has someone found a file which doesn't do that? It makes sense, but doesn't seem very well executed (so to speak) to me.
I'd say it's meant to end like that. And I thought it was really well done *shrug*
I could see this whole story making an excellent movie though. Albeit, end the movie just before the
little brother jumps. And then in the credits play I Don't Mind, and have Brothers as the opening
Only listened to album on YouTube so far, but sounds goddamn great.
The song was great and all, but it wasn't amazing.
NBODOY CARES ABOUT THE ONE SONG ANYMORE
i refuse to believe it's the real ending. it's done horribly. i will leave it at that.
album rapes otherwise
its done fine
hey guys look what i found
at least we know it ends that way
fucking powerful stuff
headstone is unbelievable
lol all day to that link.
I feel like Defeater just punched me in the dick in the best way possible.
Whole albums on youtube atm for those interested.
Listened to it 5 times already now. Only track I am not keen on is I don't mind, but the rest are excellent.
I really would like to hear someone justify a 2.5 or less for this album with a review tbh.
I don't really get the dislike for I Don't Mind...it's simple, because it represents the one moment in all of their albums where life was simple and calm and nice. And I find it beautiful, and tragic, for that.
Still getting this in March. Fuck a leak.
thinking about getting that t-shirt with the dock on it
so the first half of Empty Days is beyond amazing
don't spoil it son, dl is almost finished
I love the idea of the last track finishing suddenly, but it really could've been done better. Doesn't detract from the album though, which is amazin.
Exactly my thoughts edwin... I dont like the way it was executed either.
Not sure how else you can stop mid-word other than stopping mid-word.
Maybe they shouldn't have stopped mid-word then, because it just sounds like a glitch in the file. Oh well, never mind.
Album is REALLY good.Don't see how the last word getting cut off doesn't make sense, he gets hit by a train...
It makes perfect sense, but the way they did it is an awkward sounding way to end a song.
Yeah, true I guess they wanted to pull a last sopranos episode on it.
only the last sopranos episode ending had no purpose.
you don't know much then
I guess not. if it did have a meaning I guess I just didn't care to notice.
"thinking about getting that t-shirt with the dock on it"
Do it! I just bought the long sleeve "No Hope" shirt.
