I'm honestly not looking forward to this. Challenger was pretty good but from what I've heard this sounds like a step back.
And I'm not sure my ears can handle the Voice of a Generations musings u know?

once again shitty lyrics get in the way of decent synthy risecore, if you're into that kind of thing.

i kind of dig pharisees but the lyrics are atrocious. and i can't get over how bad the bass drum sounds

I didn't notice it too much until people started pointing it out. Is it the stream or are the drums
really mixed that shitty? Also, lyrics actually detract from the songs. Never thought I'd say that
about a metal band where all you have to do is make up some faux-brutal/hard shit.

Christcore lyrics are nothing new if you grew up on Underoath and lame stuff like that, so that's not big deal.
For me it's the guitars, they sound so digital. Like Podfarm-preset style.
Beneath the Skin is pretty cool, but I am two tracks in so who knows how the rest will play out?

Underoath wasn't so blatant about the whole Jesus thing.

yeah there were very few underoath songs that were super obvious about jesus loving stuff, and even when they did it was fine because it sounded genuine rather than trend following (not saying this is trend following in particular, just that a lot of "christian" metalcore groups sound that way) mostly their lyrics were just about inner struggle that most people could relate to

lol yes they were. Aaron became so devout he quit to do his whole solo thing.
Underoath were just a bit better then these guys.
It's quite funny to see Matty wish he could touch upon the inner struggles that Spencer and Aaron did and not sound lame. He is trying so hard to sing about "srs issues" and it's coming across as stupid.
Listened to the whole thing, album sucks. First two songs are good then it's all downhill from there.

They weren't really. As people they were yeah, but lyrically not so much.

it seems like this band is having a serious identity crisis, which would be a good mindset to record an album in but they're doing a poor job of directing that creative energy, which is a shame because they have potential to be good.

I tend to disagree, they just weren't so juvenile about it.
I don't care if the lyrics are faith based or not tbh, it's the fact that they just suck. Go look at some stuff from Define the Great
Line and then this, Matty still sounds like an angsty kid writing "Fuck you, you don't know my struggles...Oh...*breakdown*" all
over his notebook as his teacher drones on.
And that whole voice of a generation thing still makes me lol.
Skill-wise, they can play their instruments for a scene band. But like most (Word Alive for example) they don't really push
themselves.

I've only heard Hounds of Anubis by Word Alive and what I got is that the guitarist have potential, but the song was boring. Same thing with that The Air I Breathe band originally.

This band and Underoath shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence. I mean, this band wouldn't exist without Underoath paving the way, but MMF isn't even a fraction of what Underoath was.

I used to be a a huge fan but they lose me more and more with every album they put out.

I don't understand all the hate this album is getting. It ain't bad at all. There's really no difference between this and their last record.
