This grew on me after a while... That being said, not the musical direction I was hoping for. Dallas sounds phenomenal
They went stoner rock with the riffs and I’m fucking here for it
Digging: Venom Prison - Samsara
The new shit makes me wanna listen to the old shit brb
wasn’t sure about this at first but now i’m into it
glad they're still doing what they want to do, i'm sure i'll grow into it eventually
Digging: Akasha - Canticles of the Sepulchral Deity
I’m down for more of this direction. Actually I’m down for anything from these guys. I’m just glad they’re making new music. Bonus that it’s actually really good.
What a comeback
sounds like they're picking up from Dog's Blood with that riff which is hella cool, but that EP has such unpredictable and wild songwriting where this is like 85% a few lines repeating. like it but hope the rest is crazier tbh
> This slaps
High Alexis on Fire
It's cool that they're releasing new stuff but I'm not into this at all.
It was okay
Kinda lame honestly. Might need to give t more time but yeah really not feeling this
Digging: Trivium - Shogun
big ol' meh but cool that they're making new tunes. Saw them live at Stampede last year and they were incredible
Not too interesting, but them being together and writing again is a good sign
looks like this is gonna be just a standalone single, with a couple of tour dates coming along with it
This rules man, it seems like such a different direction for them, but fuck I love it.
One song is not enough to speak of a direction my bois.
Here's to hoping a new album will come fast.
They said in an interview yesterday that this is indeed just a standalone single (for now). They have no immediate plans for a new LP, but there could easily be a new EP or LP in the next while if they find themselves in the right environment to make it. Said that they wouldn't make a new AOF record if they didn't have the time or ability to dedicated themselves 100% to the project.
Kind of a bummer but personally I'm just glad they're not forcing out a new record. I'd rather wait forever to get actual inspired material than a tepid comeback record.
Digging: Mineral - The Power of Failing
I am so ready for whatever this is going to sound like.
Totally diggin' this.
Didn't realize how much I missed that vocal interplay between George, Dallas and Wade (despite Wade having a very small amount of vocals).
Digging: Polaris (AUS) - The Mortal Coil
band is so sick
Digging: Gorguts - Colored Sands
Couple more listens and I’m liking it better now. Reminds me of Maylene & the Sons of Disaster
Queen Alexis of the Stone Age on Fire
Digging: Jack The Joker - Mors Volta
This might be what finally converts me to a hardcore AOF fan, just like Underoath's Erase Me did for them.
Digging: Attalus - Into the Sea
it's pretty good, but not what I was hoping for at all, where the F U C K is my Crisis 2.0?
Digging: Chapel (Rise) - Sunday Brunch
Dallas sounds as great as ever. What a voice
OH ITS FUCKING
High Alexis on Fire
Ohh fuck I would be so disappointed if Alexis EVER came back with Crisis 2.0 lol. They did that sound and did it well, that's enough. I hope they continue with this tone.
aight yea the more i spin this the more im into it definitely copping tickets to the new york show now
Not what I expected at all, but I’m not complaining
Digging: Children of Bodom - Hexed
Might take a few listens to settle.
Took me a few listens to get into, the new direction took me for a loop, but now I'm loving it!
Digging: Alexisonfire - Watch Out!
yeah i was iffy at first but now i cant get it out of my head. hope we do end up getting a full length
Woow this is bad
Digging: Edyth - Bare II
Is it hard being a contrarian all the time, or do you get off on it?
I was worried after seeing how underoath and thrice came back but this is great
@crematorium i actually exclusively get off on pissing off users that I've never heard of before
So in answer to your question, yes, its rock hard
