New Northlane single

2018-07-13 by sempiturtle | 59 Comments
Aussie metalcore band Northlane have released a surprise new single, titled "Vultures". This is the band's first new song since their last album, Mesmer, was released in early 2017. As of now, there's no indication as to whether "Vultures" is part of an upcoming full length album or just a standalone single. However, the band have announced that the new track will also be released on 7" vinyl. Check out the full song here:

If it's being released on 7", then it most likely is just a standalone single.

Not bad

Mix is tight, there's some interesting vocal phrasing in first verse and it was good to hear a bit more range in Marcus's screams

Man where was this intensity when they were making their last few albums? That was good. I mean I'm not gonna play it over and over but it was still solid.

Will they ever stop doing this super boring low end riffing and go back to writing interesting songs like on discoveries? Marcus sounds a lot bettet in this tho

The best thing they have put out in a while.
Marcus sounds fantastic here, guitars and drums have brought the energy back they have been missing.

Like those junz at 2:20ish

I think it's the tone they have been using since Marcus came in, they have been doing a Tesseract and backing off on the distortion a bit.

Genesis is still heavy as balls but if they played it with their current tone it would sound weak as shit

Yea I haven't liked the less distorted tone they've been using since Marcus joined, it has no power to it

Nice song.

Will be honest though, Mesmer was my favourite Northlane record. Hope they still bring the melodies on the next record.

Hell yeah. This song slays. I know a lot of people are love it or hate it with Northlane post-Marcus, but to be honest I love both in different ways. They are definitely a different band now. Marcus's vocal range seems like it's really expanding. It's awesome to see.

Adrian's lows were brutal for early Northlane, while Marcus' lows are still weak as shit. He's getting better, but I think that's holding the band back. They've put out some good stuff post-Adrian, but Discoveries is still there best work.

It's nice to see Marcus utilising a larger range of harsh vocals here but instrumentally this isnt doing it for me at all. They've really stagnated since singularity and refuse to move out of their comfort zone.

Never cared for these guys but this fucking rips. The ambient electronic stuff in the beginning was pretty sweet, could go for more of that.

I mean the averages (at least on this site) are 0.2 apart so I don't think the gap in quality is as huge as some people like to make it out to be.

I'm not talking about averages or anything like that. What you said made it sound like people who don't like new Northlane have bad reasons for it, which isn't the case at all. The guitar tone lost all the punch it had, Marcus is a boring vocalist with weak screams and is not nearly as passionate as the vocalist before him, they traded riffs and fun bouncy guitars for atmospheric bullshit, and the drums are held back so much more. I've said it a thousand times

sempiturtle

Those are all legitimate reasons, and I'd agree that Adrian was more passionate and the music felt more personal and certainly more emotional back in his day. But I'd also argue that the guitar and kick drum especially were WAY too forward in the mix on the first two records and the Marcus-era ones are far more balanced and detailed. Idk I guess my ears just REALLY like the tone they've gone for (on all instruments) since Marcus joined.
