I don't like their vocalist that much but otherwise I think this band rules. Their hyper melodic sections (Flourish) give me eargasms.

This will almost certainly top the new Periphery album. And from what I've heard from them playing new songs live, this will probably top Exoplanet.

I saw these guys on friday, the two new songs they played sound quite proggy. It's going to be hard to top exoplanet but my god i hope they do

nah, they have a few pretty straight-forward deathcore tunes

album is gonna rule hard, though. With Exoplanet, I predicted (well, me and many others it seems) that this band would do great things.

They're a bit propgy, their breakdowns for the most part are not, Exoplanet used the same sounding ones too much, I hope they move past that.

Exoplanet definitely had a bit too much deathcore in it for my tastes, but they did do a good job at mixing the prog and the deathcore well. Like Flourish. Fuck that song is hngggg.

I'm pretty familiar with the band, yes. Their new stuff will be more progressive than their past albums, from what I heard they toned down the junz a bit.

I could listen to Flourish and Oscillator on repeat for a loooong time.. and I have. I can't think of a single other band that does such epic melodic pieces. My only complaint is that there isn't more of that stuff, they do it so well it's hard not to want more of it. Heavy is good and all but fuuuuuck that stuff is so awesome.

You're right man, it's definitely why they stand out in an otherwise awful genre. The argument could also be made that those sections wouldn't be as effective is they occured more often. But I would agree with you that they should experiment with it a bit more than they already do.

Hells yes. Exoplanet is easily one of my favorite albums of the past five years or so, although I will agree that there are a few too many breakdowns in it. Still, the title track, Oscillator, and Contact alone make up for any issues I have.

The fact that they had to rush writing and recording Exoplanet makes me believe that this will be incredible, based off of the live tracks on youtube and the fact that Exoplanet was fucking awesome itself.

So stoked.

Band's can still employ breakdowns often throughout their music and not have it detract from their tunes. If it's done right, and not used as a cruch, there's nothing wrong with them. The Opposite of December by Poison The Well is a classic example of this.

Even though I like this band some of these comments are just pathetic of how much praise they give these guys like their the second coming. It's good deathcore but not album of the year material some said about Exoplanet.

This made me want to listen to Exoplanet again... So I did. And I came to the conclusion the vocalist ruins a lot of the material for me. His growls are so dull and there's little to no variation to them throughout the abum. If they had a great vocalist I would absolutely love this band.

The 3 hexagons on cover of the new album bear a striking resemblance to the windows icon for "TuneUp Utilities" ...anyone else notice?
