Not great, but pretty solid, nontheless.
Digging: Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase.
i can jam to this
Digging: Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest
Not too shabby.
catchy as hell. I can get behind this. I was really skeptical about the vocalist being replaced, but this sounds great.
fucking chris barretto is godlike these days, he's always been a great vocalist (periphery with him being the best the band has ever been) but man he continues to improve and its crazy.
ps he's still in ever forthright
I was gonna say... Since when did he leave Ever Forthright
Digging: Entities - Novalis
This stuff is starting to bore me
This band has gone through how many vocalists?
I wasn't too hot on the vocals the first time around but by the second they had me
These guys haven't grown much musically but they're still great, hopefully chris will stick around so they can expand their sound a bit more
Well then they'd better pick it back up
This is great! The previous vocalist single handedly ruined Gnosis for me. I'm glad they've finally found a proper fit for the band.

I don't really notice a huge difference with Barretto's screams, but I definitely do like his singing. Less nasal.
I notice a big difference. The last vocalist sounded like an amateur who got lucky. He had a few good vocal hooks but generally couldn't carry a song. His vocals were also extremely grating. Really glad I can care about this band again.

I agree to an extent. But i also feel the instrumentals weren't that huge.
This new single is just amazing imo
is all right I guess
Digging: Matana Roberts - COIN COIN Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres
"I agree to an extent. But i also feel the instrumentals weren't that huge."
True. That melody in the chorus is stupid catchy and feels very big.
The clean vocals are better than Rose imo but the harsh are not as good. Glad to see some new output from these guys.
chris sounds x1097908365987165089 times better than the previous vocalist, and i didnt even mind him.
i'm pretty stoked to see how this album turns out. always been interested in brownes riffs.
YEAH MOTHERFUCKER Gnosis was ear rape
Some pretty good riffs to be found here, and Baretto can still carry some great hooks like his Periphery days.
Digging: Stick To Your Guns - Disobedient
this is gonna fuck on Gnosis
album title = fanciest term for "secretary" ever. album art looks sick again too.
on the bright side, Chris Barretto is a monster vocalist. he has strangely (at least to me) altered his screams to sound a little like Matt Rose's, though his cleans are still top-notch and unique. i dunno if it's just Monuments' sound that makes me feel that way, anyone else?
crossing my fingers that they've decided to include some of Barretto's sax skills in this album somewhere.
Great replacement. Song reminds me of "Doxa" off the debut
pretty boring really
'crossing my fingers that they've decided to include some of Barretto's sax skills in this album somewhere.'
Apparently he does play sax somewhere in the album. Song sounds better than anything off Gnosis to me! Hyped for this.
nah this really isn't boring.
the new chelsea grin song? boring and uninspired. this? nah. not even close
