The mixing is really weird. Vocals are way too high, drums are really quiet for a band that's getting all its press off of Joey.
Didn't do much for me.
Digging: Pope Francis - Wake Up!
Vocals kinda ruined it for me.
Also, band name is horrifically generic and cliched
horrible band name, LOVE the song.
Band name is just so bad. Song brings the junz
Still deciding if I like it or not. So far I think the running time is too long and the song is a bit repetitive. I expected more.
gets better at about 4:19 during that breakdown but other than that lack luster
Digging: Foo Fighters - Saint Cecilia
Verb the noun
I get the feeling Jed was one of the ones who wanted SYL to get big. Either that or he has reached a point where he is willing to attach himself to something this generic.
Might just be that he wanted something to do since Zimmers Hole is inactive (what with Byron having 3IoB and Gene being everywhere) and Joey Jordison was first to come knocking. Personally I like this song. Could be better but as the first song written for the project I suspect this was initially written as an embryo for a Slipknot song which would explain why it could end up one of the weaker tracks. After this Joey brought in the other members so I still have high hopes for the album.
Digging: Goodbye to Gravity - Mantras of War
Has quite the late-nineties nu-metal, nothingface-esqe feel. In spite of this, I don't find it repulsive, merely mediocre (which I have a guilty pleasure for). Although the lyrical content is dismal at best. "CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE!"
song was not bad, but too repetitive, i think 7 minutes is just too much for this song, but, i'll still take a look at this album when it goes out, seems to be at least better than most shit that comes out nowadays...
____ the ____ band... Do they sound like their name does?
Digging: Intronaut - Habitual Levitations
Kinda boring sure all the other stuff will be better.
