sounds like a fucking stadium anthem from the teaser. Interested in a concept album but this turns me off

people still care about this band? awake was an abortion

comatose is one of the best modern rock albums ever, though.

As much as I hate to admit it, Comatose was great. And their new drummer/singer is great. But I have no hopes for this.

Where the hell is that band that made "Collide"? Seriously, that album was phenomenal and then they sold out so hard

Everything they've done is just Nickleback for people who are too cool for Nickleback.

Meh, reminds me of "Bully" by Shinedown, which was the worst song ever done by them. No sir, don't like it.

"Everything they've done is just Nickleback for people who are too cool for Nickleback."

nah, they were a cheap NIN rip-off for a while in the late 90s/early 00s

Why does this not sound like a horrible idea?

the title of the song sucks, i'm a little curious on this though
if it's high quality i might enjoy it, even if i've grown off of mainstream rock considerably since
pre-awake

some synth flair going on there. sounds like a mix of alien youth and comatose

i don't know if i ever listened to alien youth but if it's some parts comatose maybe there will be a salvageable song or two

One of the bands that I have radically outgrown between their albums.

Song is predictable. The "concept album" thing has potential, though. I always thought that Skillet should have gone more progressive after Comatose.

Well, on the progressive note, they've announced they will be " integrating natural, acoustic instruments like accordion, mandolin, dulcimer, harp, tympani and bells to their trademark slashing electric guitars, strings, churning synths and pummeling drums."
What this means, I have no idea. But for the first time since Comatose I'm actually interested in their music, so I guess that's a good sign of sorts.

Good, they probably realized how shitty and rehashed awake was

Comatose and Collide are fucking awesome, however, I'm not looking forward to this new single at all. The anti-bullying shit needs to stop, and it doesn't work in song form. It didn't work when Rise Against did it, it didn't work when Shinedown did it, it didn't work when Billy Talent did it, and it certainly won't work for Skillet.

Agreed, I thought Billy Talent did a great thing with it. They donated $1 to kid's help phone for every time the music video was aired. And that was back when Much Music was really popular (not sure if it got much air time outside of Canada though). I have absolutely no problem with bands taking a stand against anti-bullying.

I wouldn't put much stock in how they describe the album considering this is what they said about Awake:

"Classic rock riffs, swirling drums, monstrous hooks, and undeniably catchy choruses... hints of old school progressive rock mixed in with modern alternative flourishes... touches of classical influence as swelling strings intersect with sonic adrenaline rushes."

Technically that's what Comatose was, and A&A was just a bastardized rehashing of that album.

All the prog epics on Awake must've been cut right before release.

pretty sure that was the comatose description. and it's partially correct but definitely over the top

welp, huge improvement over awake, but john cooper's voice continues to deteriorate and the lyrics are
pretty bad

seriously, if you compare this to rebirthing, he's either lost all the nuance in his voice or he's going for a straight gruff style now. pretty bad.

I feel as though John Cooper is intentionally trying to kill his voice. His voice is clearly weaker and yet he continues to insist on screaming when he sings.
