New song is ok. That's really all I can say about it. Nothing interesting about it tbh.

I think what bothers me more is Corey's mask not covering his baldness

Would it kill them to experiment a little?



Weird thing is Root is such a great guitar player, I know he can write better riffs etc.

You could pick a verse from any track here put it in the new song and you wouldn't tell the difference



At this point their songs are good only when the chorus is catchy enough

Digging: Fields of the Nephilim - The Nephilim

0-1-1-0-0-0-0-2-0 verse riff



cut & paste chorus



cringey spoken word



0-1-1-0-0-0-0-2-0 verse riff



decent bridge



end



That's their output over the past few years.

I dont get why they keep doing the clean singing, Slipknot has always been just growls, they could go as heavy as Iowa easily if they wanted to, but they choose not to, and its just bizarre really

Corey can barely hang with screams now, saw them back in 2015 and Corey's performance was abysmal.

Looking at the masks I can't tell who literally half of them are. When they've lost that many members I guess that's understandable. Kinda ruins the impact though.

First three tracks on this are great, then it ventures off into forgettable mediocrity.

I enjoy the new tracks but they are like 3/5, and sound really similar to .5, especially the chorus vocal rhythm in All Out Life. I'm too lazy to listen to TGC and find the chorus that sounds exactly like that but I'm sure it's in there.



I think Joey Jordison wrote pretty unique drum parts and those are sorely missed on the new stuff...

This album it's so whatever, forgettable songs, cheesy name and shitty cover, the new one seems to follow the same path.

Boring album, lackluster riffs and insipid structure in the songs

I remember listening to this for the first time and expectations were high as it was their first in awhile.



The first three songs (XIX, Sarcastrophe and AOV) got me so hyped. I was like damn , they’re back after the disappointing AHIG. Fuck, should have stopped there. Rest of the album was insanely disappointing.
