waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many breakdowns. hopefully the rest will be better
Last new song I heard from these guys was terrible, not gonna waste my time listening to this.
Digging: Cleric - Retrocausal
I turned off Dark Time for this. Best decision I've made all day...
This band has officially lost all of its potential. Welcome to the melting pot.
Digging: Flotsam and Jetsam - Doomsday for the Deceiver
Sucked but not disappointing cause I knew it would.
Haven't listened yet, does their singer still sound like Johnny Craig?
This song was so bad I almost reconsidered posting the news article, but then I figured the good people of Sputnikmusic need to know what this band has become.
he never did soooo...no.
Dafuq happened to his screams? they were great before.
The lead singer decided to stop "misleading the fans" by having his screams produced by Joey Sturgis.
Basically he is admitting he has always sucked at screaming.
huge disappointment.. this band used to be pretty damn good too
does he sound like this live? Oo
Why is anyone surprised that their new material sucks? Pretty sure the guy who used to write all their songs quit the
well that sucked
That fucking ruled
Eh it was alright. Screams are definitely worse than the last album, but he's still one of the best clean vocalists in the genre.
Digging: Glassjaw - Material Control
Oh man that was bad.... and the vocalist really sounds like shit. He can still sing but holy fuck his screams are so weak and broken down sounding, and not in the way that makes them sound emotional or anything good, it just sounds like his voice can't handle what he's trying to do.
How does morale have a color?
He said he was going for a more natural vocal sound aka not over-produced because his lows he could not hit on tour and were putting strain on his singing voice... Saw them live last year he was great live and such a good guy. Now that I think about it he gave the mic to the crowd during key breakdowns in songs like Demon Teeth where he couldn't scream i guess
I like this more than the other song they released, but I guess that isn't saying a whole lot...
Maybe they should just drop the harsh vocals altogether, his cleans are really good.
his screams are awesome now though
He sounds uncomfortable with his harsh vox on these new tracks, and his cleans are so much better. Maybe he just needs some time to get this new new vocal style going.
Digging: Blood Cultures - Happy Birthday
god damn just find somebody who does harsh vox
Digging: Icarus the Owl - Rearm Circuits
Never got into this band
Digging: Within Destruction - Void
He just needs to do cleans, he's a great singer and it's not like the music NEEDS harsh vocals, and it sure as shit doesn't need ones this bad.
yeah, but the harsh vocals rule
Boring, hope this isn't a representation of their new album
"i turned off [shitty fucking band nobody gives a fuck that you listen to] for this, terrible decision" comments are literally the most fucking annoying thing on this website shut up
All potential shown in the last album has dissipated completely. Very disappointing.
Just for future reference, italicize album names.
"YOURE BORING FGT"
I enjoyed "Learned Behavior" much more than this. Also, am I the only one who actually likes the 'new' harsh vocals?
looks like rise records finally took a hold of them. They went from a seemingly boundless potential in the genre to the generic over-vox'd and poppy metalcore you see everywhere around you. Product of the niche of the industry. gross.
to answer the one guy... i think color morale would indicate possibly our lack of morality due to
money(being green). Things like that make the name a applicable metaphor.
Disappointing considering how good we all have demons was. They should really ditch the heavier sections or get a 2nd vocalist. A couple dudes from my area released a song with this guy on cleans which reminds me of their older stuff.
if this is anything like the other song they've put out it fuckin sucks already
If Sturgis didnt produce the vocals, he definitely produced the rest of it because its a silly jun factory/ electronic interlude/ pop chorus rise formula.
Vocals sound like a shitty version of Stray From The Path
It sucks because their guitarist has really really good skramz but he only does them a few times per show. Agreed it sounds like a much much shittier stray from the path.
It's not like this guys harsh vox were that special in the first place. Probably wouldn't be too difficult to get another guy who could do them the same if not better.
But his cleans are this bands only saving grace at this point.
Oh nah I just want them to get a 2nd vocalist, I love the cleans dude. They're pretty much the main reason I listen to these
What happened to this band...
Oh, in that case I totally agree.
Oh gawd, they were actually pretty good before this.
oh god, this is still really great
I mean yeah if you like bad vocals and extremely generic and boring instrumentals.
you can die
They need to hire a separate vocalist. Garret can't scream and it's only hurting his cleans when he tries. They would sound much better. Gosh, I thought this was okay and then I listened to Walkers and cried at how bad it was in comparison.
Drumming is pretty bad too. Like it's all generic. And The Dying Hymn and Walkers are their peak. They need to match that!
