Song is awesome, if a little short. Not really a fan of the artwork though. I love Bannon as an artist, but I feel his work really shines through his use of colour, even if it's subtle (You Fail Me) but it's just absent here.

Art is meh, but with its minimalist design and lack of color, perhaps it signifies the band stripping down their sound???

"if the split singles indicate anything than you are probably right eli"

Well the band has said that there won't be any guests on the album, as there were on the last two, and they tried to capture that raw energy of their live shows. Judging from that it seems like they're doing a "back to the basics" thing which sounds like it could be awesome.

The deluxe CD comes in a 48 page booklet full of colour prints to go with the album, thats probably where all the colour is.
Good point was made about the simplicity of the 'face' of the album, since they have made this album raw and just the 4 of them. Who knows what crazy emotional complexities lie inside the pages =O
Excited for this release.

I dont get why people call the vocals his new "style" either. Its not like he doesnt scream anymore now. He also sounded like this on the last albums, only in a few songs though (Trophy Scars, Last light). I think that 90% of the album will still be raging vocals rather than this singing/spoken style.

The bonus track on You Fail Me, Wolves At My Door, isn't a jap track nor is it a hidden track. I have the european vinyl of it and wolves at my door comes right after eagles become vultures
