@Xenophanes the EP was way better than the album that came out after it. I don't like Parallax II all that much but the following album was quite the grower on me.

Fucking hell why isn't that tour coming to Europe The support acts do show that the record will probably be way more prog rock than the technical prog metal we are used to from these guys. I guess more of a continuation of the last release

so I guess we're just getting one whole album chopped into two pieces, or like two EPs with one theme

So this is Parallax again? Or what Coheed did with Afterman? Ehh... Looks like the songs might be a bit shorter this time around, so hopefully they're a bit more focused. These guys lose me in their instrumentation sometimes.

i wish they would do this too because silent circus is the best, but at least coma ecliptic was good and not a snoozefest like parallax 1 and 2

K, but this track list is like 35 minutes. I guess that's pretty close to album length.

At least with Parallax, you didnt need to buy the EP in order to fully understand Parallax II.

I hope this doesn't suck like Coma Eclipitic.

Colors is their magnum opus, but Alaska is potentially just as good depending on the day, your mood, and the alignment of the stars. The Silent Circus and the self-titled are also really great if you prefer a more raw death metal experience from the guys. There are stand out tracks littered all over those 4 LPs.

Atleast the production is a lil better, but for some reason Tommy's vocals sound weak on this and past release. They are again too loud in the mix, but atleast the guitars are louder too. Song is heavy, not sure if I like it yet

Bootface

The new song is cool - Condemned to the Gallows. It's definitely heavy, so I wonder if that will be the tone for the album. Parts of it sound like standard BTBAM fare (saying that as a big fan) so while the song is good, it's not necessarily hyping me up for the album. Maybe it's a grower and not a shower. Tommy's growls sound strained though, like his voice is blowing out or he had a bad cough when they recorded it. The difference isn't huge, maybe I'm imagining it.

Eons
January 19th 2018

They should get a guy that can growl and like convincingly scream. Like a lower voiced guy, and keep Tommy to do cleans. That'd make the band like way better imo

Tommy's got too much pride to let that happen most likely, but yeah there are certainly better options out there.
