wow i feel like such a douche for making fun of this song nonstop

“Hush Yael”
Hush Yael is a tragic story of the Haran family from Nahariya, Israel. On April 22, 1979, this family was murdered in a terrorist attack led by Samir Kuntar, a former member of the Palestine Liberation Front. The only survivor of this attack was the mother, Smadar. While her husband and one of her daughters were being kidnapped and eventually murdered, Smadar hid with her two-year-old daughter Yael in a crawl space above a bedroom in their apartment. Yael was accidentally suffocated in an attempt to quiet her from crying out and revealing their hiding spot. So this song was born out of that tragedy. We decided that my singing would be the voice of the mother whispering to Yael in those last moments, and Micah's voice would be the narrator of the tragic tale. Needless to say, this song is emotional and we were glad to be able to bring this story to our fans.

Good track, not a huge Oh, Sleeper fan but they aren't a bad band by any means, and I'm pretty stoked on this album from what I've heard so far.

“The Marriage Of Steel And Skin”
This was the third song written for the album. Micah told me this song was about a father avenging his daughter's rape by decapitating the rapist, so we wanted a really psychotic/eerie sounding song. I wanted a "food for guitar nerds" song as well, so I wrote this entire song out around a tapping pattern of off-key weird notes. James showed me a beautifully eerie chord pattern he'd came up with and it fit perfectly as the chorus. This was the only song on the record that we prepro'd Micah's vocals on. Due to that fact, I think some of the best vocal takes were on this song. At the last minute before recording this song, Zac came in and re-wrote a few drum parts on the big breakdown, and really made this song what it needed to be.

Damn

This is a great song, the whole album is solid. TDWP and ABR can take note.

Album slays, way better than the ABR and TDWP releases this year. Quite the step up from Son of the Morning so that's great to see.

Every song on Son of the morning was dwarfed by When I am God...Except world without a sun. That song is a mix between Beastmode, GodMode and Bedazzling.

I think I need to listen to the album again judging by all the praise you guys are giving it. I listened once and thought it was pretty good, but it didn't immediately stick.

It's a grower, Tom. I wasn't all that impressed on my first listen but now I'm pretty much addicted to it.

Endseekers, Shed Your Soul, The Marriage of Steel and Skin, Hush Yael- best songs. Everything after the first few kind of drags. It's not that they're bad, not by any means. They just don't stand out like the first half of the album.
