thankfully I'm not hearing the bad production, tho I haven't listened to it on headphones yet

the only thing that bothers me, which I'm not sure is a conscious decision or not, is that static-sounding guitar in the background of most riffs. not sure if it's actually static or intentional. seems to lack structure compared to what they did on say, Stronghold or LMHSYF

The first song is really sweet, and then the rest is basically a weaker version of the last record.

Hmm I would say the first song is a weaker version of a song from the last record. the rest (minus the closer which is another inferior retread) are actually really good, with Herumor being a standout and one of their best songs to date

I'd like them to move back away from this style, where the guitar is more in the foreground. They're not really great riff-writers to begin with and I can't say I'm a huge fan of the guitar tone on the last two albums.

agreed. they're much better at the subtle tremolo riffs in the background

then again they killed it with those staccato riffs in LMHSYF

Yeah, I honestly think they peaked with that and Oath Bound.

Like, surprisingly amateur decisions were made that don’t make sense.

Precisely how I feel about most of the albums I've listened to by these guys.

true, but then, those riffs were always complimentary pieces to excellent synth melodies



i think the guitar tone is really unfitting on this album, it's really obtrusive to the atmosphere



that said, it's the first time to memory they haven't changed the guitar tone from one album to the next

"Oath Bound is where it's at"



Yeah that's my favorite of theirs by a long shot. Probably will never top it

Stronghold broskis

also this is a huge grower. even Silvertine is growing on me despite that blatant Caradhras ripoff horn melody

OMD is my favourite closely followed by Dol Guldur and Oath Bound
