Not quite a fan of this song. I mean, it probably wasn't right of me to even expect much after Shayley left

Hmm, I didn't really mind if the band lost the clean vocals because even without them any song on their two albums was a fun and heavy track.

This new song however kinda sucks...

It's not even fun to listen too! Guys, you need a CLEAN vocalist. Just cuz Austin can scream professionally doesn't mean it sounds good for an entire song, especially one that's terribly written. Come on! "The Flood" was really going places for you, what happened?

I mean it's not bad, but it definitely fell a little flat for me. I feel like the lyrics are weird too, I can't really catch a lot of meaning behind it. Idk, not my favorite song by them. Hopefully the other 2 newer songs will catch my ear.

From what I understand, frontman Austin is also performing clean screams on the album. I'm sure they'll be featured in other tracks. As "I'm a Monster" on the Flood was in the same kind of style as this track is. Lots of screaming, breakdowns, and repeated riffs. It's not great, but it isn't terrible either. It definitely can get you 'pumped,' and you just gotta love the production on this song. So glad they chose a different producer for the re-release tracks (though, Joey Sturgis did do a pretty exceptional job with the tracks on The Flood).

"Apparently not says, c0nf1n3d"

Correct! While I'm honestly not sure who it is per say, the new tracks have been engineered in New York. Also, production
shots (via their Facebook page), showcase that the control room is MUCH different from Joey's. There's a complete
soundboard/patch bay, and it looks actually really nice! I'm sure the 'producer/engineer' or whatnot will be included in
album credits, or announced later.

I expected not to like the song, but it was a lot different than I thought and although I think it's a bad slip knot impersonation I'm glad it's not some cheesy typical shit with a big breakdown in it.

They're just like Attack Attack! They're trying to get heavier and heavier.. Not mention that their new song is just gonna be on a reissue of their album.. (Sound familiar? *cough* Attack Attack! *cough*). In fact, their so much alike that I forget which one is which sometimes.

The beginning sounds like a cross between Slipknot's Eyeless and Surfacing, and the rest is new Attack Attack! (but
better) with a bit of BMTH's It Never Ends. But I like the song.

all the big rise bands want to leave rise because its a terrible label so they are running up their contracts by doing
reissues because reissues count as 1 of the albums in their 5 or so album contracts. been an omam fan for awhile, lyrics

Bleh...I'm not the biggest fan in the first place, but this song really is repetitive sounding and is definitely missing more chords or something. The screams are pretty good, but man, it does seem to be missing the cleans or something else to break it up.

Oh, and I am actually really excited for the Poison the Well reissue of Opposite of December and Tear from the Red. Both of those albums are old enough and are awesome enough to deserve reissues in my opinion, as well as remastering. I wholeheartedly agree with the other reissues of silly stuff like Attack, Attack...kind of embarrassing that something like that would get a reissue...

Eh it's ok I just think they shoulda stuck with the sound they had on The Flood. IMO I just don't think their next album will be as good without Shayley. His cleans were a real highlight in most of their songs.

he had hurt his back, and touring so often hurt it worse so he was covering the pain with alcohol. So hes just not touring now.
