I like this better than the first one they posted, more dynamic. Just because it's singing doesn't make it sound like Stone Sour.

TBH this sounds pretty decent despite of some similarities with korn, still is pretty enjoyable. New album will be a 3,5

x-post from the AHIG thread

The chorus of [that new song] is the only Slipknot thing about it. Everything else could be ripped straight out of Audio Secrecy AFAIC.

Other than Corey, nothing else sticks out. Very bland.

Interest in this album is beginning to wain.

Both songs feel very empty to me, not a lot going on in either of them. I feel like the draw of a good Slipknot song is chaos and energy, both songs are lacking these things.

There has always been a decently noticeable difference in the way he delivered his vocals in both bands though, but the singing in this song sounds MUCH closer to the way he sings in Stone Sour.

Anyways, something about that intro riff really bugs me, but i'm not sure what. When he starts singing though, it gets a lot better.

knew they would release the heaviest song on the album first and follow it with a sourknot song

i don't even dislike it solely because there's singing but his melodies are just so weak

as a song, i like it TBH
as a slipknot song, it sounds a lot like a B-Side to Vol. 3 which is what i guess they were going for. And i think people just hear a different tone for the drums and think "oh man they suck." they really don't sound too far off from Joey's drums, if that even is another person. I've yet to hear Joey say that he isn't in the band anymore he denied it last i heard.

Even less heart than The Negative One. The less frenetic songs on AHIG still had really nice composition and a consistent underlying strength, this is just fucking dull. The new drummer's slower parts are weak, and the blasts don't meet Jordison's in terms of energy. Drums sound poorly compressed, the toms are flat as fuck. The chugging section that starts around 3:24 is handled well, but the rest is soulless. Riffs are generic. Singing feels like it's from a throwaway Stone Sour track. Lazy is the right word. This has to be the worst single they've ever released.

The problem isn't Corey's clean singing or the opening riff/chorus riff, it's that the song doesn't balance the band's melodic side with enough intensity like their best singles from before. Just think: Wait and Bleed, Left Behind, Duality, Before I Forget, Vermillion... All of them keep the same strong pace throughout, while this keeps awkwardly starting and stoping, making it feel like it's dead halfway through the first verse. They sound like they're trying to be dynamic but it just comes across as disjointed and boring

Digging: The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Never really was much of a Maggot. Personally, I thought the song was decent, but "The Negative One" just had a little more of an oomph (though still pretty bland) factor.
