I know posting three album trailers is getting a bit excessive, but I was genuinely interested in how people felt about that sax.

Loved it, but hopefully this will be the last trailer. Feel like they are showing a bit too much of
this album off. Isn't supposed to be a 51 minute song?

It just ruins the flow, I'd rather they just stream the whole album than give 2 min teasers out every
few weeks until the release.

Band should just have a sax player instead of a vocalist

agreed. cut out the terrible vocals in lieu of a sax player. Seriously, these guys sound more pretentious every week.

From all the trailers i've heard it's non stop vocal harmony chrous-things. This new tesseract fucking blows.

This snippet was cool though, because there were no vocals.

It was cool until the chug chug dun dun guitar playing came in. I really hate those kinds of riffs. The sax was great though.

Given how bad their current vocalist is, I'd have to agree.

That was....interesting. Their new vocalist doesn't fit the band though. His voice is too gentle.

The sax is too high in the mix, but that was pretty cool. Can't argue that they're trying new things. That's definitely something I haven't heard before.

Sounding good. But so far we haven't heard any harsh vocals. Are they going full prog this time around?

cannot stand the new vocalist. He sounds like he should be doing pop country. I'm not saying he's not talented, far from it. But he just doesn't fit, imho.

I just watched the live version of Acceptance. Other than Ashe being great live, he pulled off the screams better than Dan ever could.

I feel like there's sarcasm here, even though sax solos in metal songs are pretty rare. I know there's a song by Ihsahn that has sax. I don't know what the name is though..

Speaking of excessive, aren't the band making a 51-minute animated music video? Can't fault them for not being ambitious...

I actually really really really liked that sax a whole lot. But, I'm a sucker for sax and wind instruments... except for flute. Flute is kinda distracting sometimes.

I want someone to use the Fujara in one of their tracks soon.

Ashe is pretty great and fits the music much better than Elliot, don't know why you guys are complaining so much.

I'm not a fan of him because between his vocals and the mixing, the whole band sounds weak.

"Other than Ashe being great live, he pulled off the screams better than Dan ever could."

No way, he is good, but Dan's screams are still better.

Maybe you're right, but Dan was never particularly a good screamer. You could tell he was only doing it because he was honoring what Abisola(first vocalist) wrote. Everything Dan wrote lacks any harsh vocals.

The sax was pretty cool, but the guitars get in the way and the band's sound doesn't mix well imo with
the sax solo.

It's annoying how any song/piece with a saxophone has an idiot making a correlation about it being
similar to Kenny G's atrocious playing.
