Uninspired grooves and djents for the most part , weaker melodies, predictable songwriting, and more emphasis on clean singing leaves me somewhat disappointed with Volumes follow up to a great debut in VIA. Not a bad album by any means but I expected a tighter release.

Despite some questionable lyricism, this is surprisingly solid so far. The breaks between the clean and harsh vocals are great, and the music itself is pretty varied. "Erased", "Across the bed", and "Up all night" are fucking awesome.

I really enjoyed this album. The addition of more clean singing is amazing. I like having a mix between both harsh and clean vocals.

Djentcore, it's alright. The melodic edge is kind of interesting sometimes, but they need much more practice with the sound. Lyrically, this album is occasionally cringe-worthy, just showing immaturity. Anyone else notice that a lot of these bands seem to have the same sounding production?

Aside from Vahle, which is considerably well put together, this is just boring djentcore. the more melodic tracks help spice things up a bit, but even those are mostly lackluster.

I preferred this album back when it came out two years ago. I guess Misha's been slipping these days...

This is certainly a polarizing listen. Up until now, Volumes have been entrenched in the techy/metalcore/djent craze with bands like Structures and Within the Ruins. It's not necessarily a bad place to be; it's just difficult to progress naturally out of that sound. With some atmosphere and more clean vocals added in, Volumes certainly sounds reinvigorated. "Erased" sounds like a completely different band, favoring driving clean vocals and eschewing the usual one-dimensional songwriting. The lyrics are laughable at some points (check out "Pistol Play" for the lulz), but this is a good transition album for the band. The new influences sprinkled in this time around will certainly blossom if given enough time, and as it stands now No Sleep is a fun listen.

Seriously that chorus in "Across The Bed" though, damn!!!

If you only listen to one song on this album, let it be Up All Night

As a fan beginning from their first EP release, this was a let down that I had not expected from a band that obviously had the right idea in mind. While the lyrics and inclusion of more believable clean vocals feels on-par with Via, the overall production became the ax for this album. Listening to the pre-production of "Vahle" and the same song on this LP is somewhat cringing to my poor, little djenty heart... (fuck me, I know.)
