Not bad, this remake just seems kinda pointless to me though. I don't really like spencer's vocals either.

IT's not even the junz that's the biggest turnoff for me and modern metalcore/post-hardcore, it's the fucking drum tones

Well I actually think Spencer's vocal style fits really well here. At least it sounds like it belongs in this style a lot more than it does in the realm of music that Periphery is in.

Spencer fits this band perfectly. Now make FFTL a full commitment and let Periphery be instrumental.

He sounds like he's trying to imitate Sonny's vocal delivery, but I don't know, maybe they just have more similar voices than I thought.

I would be so much more encouraged to see both of these bands live if this were the case.

fun, but only because it sounds familiar. I can't put my finger on it, but it sounds something like overproduced. Not sure about it, but I prefer the original.

Band has always been horseshit, only respectable member was travis richter and that is because he worked with the human abstract, they should stay dead and skrillex should dissapear quickly too

Whoa whoa whoa, they also had Derek Bloom! Gotta say, I fucking hate Spencer. He's terrible in Periphery and he's going to be terrible in FFTL. R.I.P. Sonny Moore.

You can tell it's Spencer, but damn he
sounds like a better sonny. This remake is
good. I wouldn't mind them remaking this
album. I just think sonnys vocals were bad
on this album and much better on heroine.

i honestly don't get the constant complaints about spencer's voice. he's an excellent singer and suits the band surprisingly well, considering sonny was already pretty whiny sounding. that's all more than enough to make me enjoy this.

Thomas he just sounds lame with periphery. He sings notes that don't really suit his voice. He is a great singer but the stuff he sings with periphery (minus a few songs of course) usually sounds odd. This really shows he is suited for poppier stuff. Think Scarlet from Periphery II.

I had a hard time not enjoying this, even if it doesn't sound all that different from the original. Spencer's vocals are less whiny than skrillex's

Man, I miss the mid-2000s scene stuff sometimes haha. I thought Spencer did a good job, but I prefer Sonny's voice. The production was pretty bad though.

I wanna hear the full version of Latest Plague with Spencer

I remember these days. Bought this album, saw them on the Smartpunk stage at Vans Warped Tour, met Sonny, got my picture with him, and he was really nice.

Then I found out he was Skrillex. I hate dubstep with a passion. But still, he was a nice guy.
