This is a new one right? These aren't tracks off of Eros are they?

New one. I feel like Eros is something that won't be seen for a very long time, if ever.

Yeah, I seriously doubt they'd finish what Chi was originally a part of without him. I'm thinking that maybe once he's out of a coma, demos from the Eros sessions will be included in some box set thing or something.

As an album, Eros will probably never be released. A couple of the songs might be reworked for new albums, or included as bonus tracks or something but I don't think anyone will ever see the whole album

Yeah, I agree completely Dev. I mean let's be honest, what are they gonna do, just completely re-visit ideas they had years ago and try to get back into a mindset they were in before they lost a band member? Thing will probably never see the light of day in it's full form, and even if by the slightest chance it did end up getting completed, it would never be like what they originally intended when they first started making it.

'Rosemary' could be an Eros track for all we know. Weren't all the songs meant to be named after strippers or something?

I thought Eros was completed except for Chino's parts? So it could be released later. Maybe unlikely, but still possible.

Agreed that Roller Derby was so-so but Rosemary ruled

If I remember correctly Eros was very close to completion, it was already being mixed. But yeah who knows if it'll ever see the light of day.

Gonna give those tracks a miss for the fresh first listen when the album drops, excited though

I thought Roller Derby was better tbh. Whether Rosemary will work or not depends entirely on the production job. If its like Diamond Eyes again Rosemary will sound shit on record, it needs more of the self titled sound

Holding onto Eros... I'm not sure it's a good energy to hold onto considering the factors around it. Let it go... Bring it out and let him come back to something fresh and more genuine..


And what the shuck, I need an iTunes account to hear Crosses' remix of "Dragula"?

This has been stated numerous times before, but the smartest thing to do with Eros is, release it and donate a large portion of the profits to "OneLoveForChi".

understanding that it's live and perhaps they are not perfected:
I love Roller Derby 4/5 this song makes me excited for the new album.
Rosemary, not so much 3/5 on the older albums this would have been the standalone track that gave you
a break from all the hard shit. In perspective and as a part of the album I might like it more.

Rosemary has the SNW sound IMO. Roller Derby on record will probably sound like something off Diamond Eyes.

The Self Titled and Saturday Night Wrist is half Deftone caliber tunes and half passable material.

Not exactly.

It just seems like the transitions from aggression to melody are sloppy/lazy

The riff seems like it could be a leftover from Diamond Eyes

It's supposed to be chaotic dude. That's the whole point of the song, if it were any smoother i don't know if i'll like it, i hate overproduced stuff. then again though, these are just live versions, and we all know Chino in the studio is way better.

almost positive rosemary is from eros, i remember reading it as one of the tentative titles.

if so, what a shame, i would like to see that album released in its entirety someday, not picked apart.
