Took a few listens to grow on me but I like this quite a bit.
Digging: Fallujah - The Flesh Prevails
This is good.
Digging: Sylosis - Conclusion of an Age
Hm, not sure how I feel
this is not good.
Digging: To The Wind - Block Out The Sun and Sleep
I liked it
I don't know. I'm impressed. But I still miss the good cop bad cop aspect to AILD.
Digging: Wovenwar - Wovenwar
I'm digging this... not AILD at all obviously but still cool.
Digging: Finch (US) - Say Hello to Sunshine
vox sux, music is alright
Digging: Interpol - El Pintor
I like Shane, but a whole song with him isn't my cup of tea (just like with Shayley from OM&M), but the music was alright.
This would be sick if I still liked Avenged Sevenfold.
vox sux, music is alright 
eh. It sounds like Black veil brides with slightly better guitar work
^ It's not very good, but I wouldn't go that far.
Digging: Shabazz Palaces - Lese Majesty
geez the amount of compression in this is literally suffocating me
Digging: Plebeian Grandstand - How Hate is Hard to Define
Really glad this isn't just AILD pt 2, though I wish the song was a little longer and not so predictably structured.
"This would be sick if I still liked Avenged Sevenfold."
You're cray cray, this band doesn't have a vacuum cleaner for a vocalist
Not bad, gentlemen. Not bad at all.
Digging: A Slow Descent - Secrets of a Melting Moon
Agreed with everyone, pretty good song. Enjoyed.
Pretty solid track. I like Shane's voice, it just sounds uninspired...
I like this. I want more.
Not bad. Not good.
It's like a good version of all those radio rock bands
Digging: Rx Bandits - Gemini, Her Majesty
I like this quite the bit.
very underwhelming, the guitar work is pretty fun, but the vocals really take away from the instrumentals.
Digging: FKA Twigs - LP1
ok ... but why AILD clean vocalist is not doing the vocals . I can't hear much differences between him to Oh ,Sleeper 's vocalist ... ?
Digging: Wovenwar - Wovenwar
Digging: The Tidal Sleep - Vorstellungskraft
The guitars are so far back in the mix, i don't even.
Song is meh.
Digging: Ulcerate - The Destroyers of All
I mean the whole production is sounding awful i hope this isn't close to the final product.
Musically, this is pretty much what As I Lay Dying were doing on Awakened. Though it isn't bad at all, I do miss the dynamics of the harsh/clean contrast, especially since the instrumental sound is so similar to what they did on their last few records.
I was just so happy to hear that it wasn't totally radio-friendly. I mean it kinda is but at least it brings some heavy as far as instruments go. I do agree the production isn't what it could be and I also think it could really use some screaming. It wouldn't even need full sections of screams, just like screams to finish out lines and final notes of choruses etc. And I definitely think Josh should contribute to some vocals. Think it would give it a nice blend of sound. His vocals sounded good on the few clips they showed a couple weeks back.
it was alright but i wouldnt listen to it again anytime soon.
@Jake I'm pretty sure Josh had a few lines in this. There were a few short spots that sounded exactly like his voice, although they sounded more like backing vocals. And that's what I was meaning, more or less, regarding the vocals. I don't want the "screamed verse/clean chorus" kinda bullshit. Just that occasional harsher edge does wonders to make a track more dynamic.
this blows dick.
im shocked (read: not shocked) by how mediocre this is
