People that buy stuff purely to support bands will likely do it either way, but yeah, I'm guessing there are a fair amount of people that will lose hype and just not purchase anything if they get their hands on the music months in advance.

As bad as I feel for the boys, obviously I had to listen to the leak. Quality was shit but I can say with quite a bit of confidence that this is their worst album. There are a few tracks that are fucking great but overall I really wasn't impressed. I'll obviously give it a real shot when the official release comes along but I think they've toned themselves down to the point where their strongest assets are now MIA.

Sadly I have to mostly agree with you. There's no huge stands out for me like I got with all their previous albums. It seems like they've toned down the intensity and craziness found on previous releases.

Like it's weird, it sounds the same in a lot of ways but if you listen to this and then go listen to Reclaimer there's a big difference. Hopefully it'll grow on me a bit more.

But I'll wait for the proper album release to make a full judgement.

On the bright side, this isn't even remotely as disappointing as Rivers of Nihil's latest.

Maybe the leak is of an unfinished version of the album

if you are worried about the leak of an album in 2021: 1. you’re old and out of date, 2. you’re relying on your band to make you money (which is lame) and you are going about relying on that income the wrong way (which is stupid)

I don't think the vocalist wants to back to being a model for Hollister though

Gave the leak another listen today. I'm definitely warming up to it but I will say I'm definitely growing to dislike the clean vocals these guys do. They sound out of place a lot of the time.

I know it's gonna blow chunks, afraid to listen to it and see one of the best modern deathcore bands regress even further

On the bright side the new Enterprise Earth which also came out today is a really fun time.

I feel like I misjudged this slightly, just couldn’t get into it for some reason… the execution wasn’t bad by any means (from memory)…



but the new one is kind of ass!
