I imagine most of the album will be heavy but the cleans are a nice switch for the band. Want to get into the heavy now.

Not feeling the cleans at all. Otherwise sounds interesting, I suppose. I'd need to hear a bit more to really have any estimate of how well they integrate with everything else.

Generic modern melodeath/djent cleans were generic. Hope the rest is better.

Maybe, just maybe:
a. they're open-minded
OR
b. they know this is better for Faceless in the long run because they know that The Faceless get boring quickly when they go straight up Tech Death.

I can't listen to their old albums all the way through. Just becomes too overbearing. Cleans may be just what they needed.

That wasn't so bad, but I definitely didn't see it coming. I'm sure the
re will be some really good shit on here, but I'm also sure that the song in this clip isn't going to be a part of that 'really good shit.'

I love how they're embracing a completely different style of metal...i'm so sick of technical music. This kinda sounded like some kind of gothic metal band like....Tristania?

judging this album based off this clip is pointless, if anything it sounds like a build up to something else, not enough to tell if it's complete shit or something worthwhile

although I've never been a fan of these guys, I'm still willing to listen to their full album

My first news story. Exciting times, folks, o boy.

I like it. I seriously hope there's a lot less screaming on this album. Same thing The Contortionist just did. Very proud of these previously Shitcore bands making something of themselves. I mean Planetary Duality was sick but I'm all for more cleans.

The clean vocals are done so pretentiously. It's like he is trying to disguise his ability with false emotion and exaggeration.

"The clean vocals are done so pretentiously. It's like he is trying to disguise his ability with false emotion and exaggeration."

The vocals actually sounded just right to me. He sounds like he could have gone overboard and pretentious with the vocals, but he didn't, which makes them sound all the more better.

Didn't like the cleans near the beginning but they mixed well with everything else near the end of the clip.

Song is progged up the ass though.

Exactly how does everyone figure the cleans are bad? Great tone, perfectly within his range, superb control, interesting patterns, etc. I can understand on "Planetary Duality" whereas the cleans seemed to contrast the instrumentation, but thus far, they have done nothing but compliment it fully here. So the statement of them being bad?... I don't see it. You want pretentious singing, you should listen to Nathan Ells.

They sound almost identical with Opeth & Ikuien Kaamos, which no one has ever really seemed to have an issue with.

Nomos

Precisely.

Dunno what people are complaining about. They fit perfectly. I'm so, so glad they're getting more and more proggy and distancing themselves from the shitty non-genre of deathcore

and once again, they change their style completely. Oh well. I still like this better than Planetary Duality, but what I really want is more songs like Pestilence and Leica.

I just don't really like cleans in generally when it comes to metal. It especially sucks when a band you like starts using them. There are plenty of other ways to change your sound. Cleans seem to be the easiest way to sound a little different. Seems sort of lazy sometimes, but, like I said, they aren't really my thing anyway.
