Not too bad, but it's a little awkward. The chorus especially just doesn't flow well with the verses, in my opinion. Despite that and my wish that he would just go back to Blood Has Been Shed, it seems the project may have potential.

This sucks. And Jones looks like a complete weirdo when he screams.

So wait... did Howard Jones rob the diner... or did he kill the man robbing the diner?

Either way, song was slightly better than I was expecting.

This sounded very sloppy to me. That video was a atrocious too. And that twist at the end? ...You've gotta be F#*%ing kidding me!

Why did he leave Killswitch to make the exact same band? lol

He left Killswitch because of back problems. I didn't think I would see him in another band. Hope this is as solid or better than his work with Killswitch

He actually left KSE because his diabetes left him in a coma for a few days. Heard this a couple of days ago and it's okay, chorus is out of place though.

Got the full album on my promos list, not sure if I should stop being so hesitant about spinning it.

I actually read in an interview with the guys is KSE that they asked him to leave, not that he left because he wanted or needed to.

Really weak chorus and everything else is mediocre. A band with Francesco on guitar duty should be way more interesting than this, that dude can shred.

Damn, the verses are so cool. Chorus is a massive let down. Album has potential though.

The news was that he left because of health issues which you can see in the video he has gained a lot of weight. But then again, why the hell would he be in another band if he quit because of health issues?

So this is basically Divine Heresy, only with more awkward transitions between sections (see; bad songwriting).
