Sweet. If this is anything like the t/t was for TSATS, I'm expecting another great variety of tracks.

They've put out two better albums but okay. This single is decent. Still got some pretty high hopes for the album, since TSATS had Heart From Your Hate as a single and that was easily the worst track of the album

instrumental intro that sounds nothing like the rest of the album despite containing a motif from the t/t = +20%
meme value of title track = +5%
production is arguably better than older trivium albums = +15%
metal production = -95%
guitars = -20%
lyrics are softboi = +1%
outro is noisey and has no riffs = +7%
is better than some other trivium albums = +5%
trivium album = - 40%
overall probability = -102%

Sounds more or less in the same vein as The Sin and the Sentence, which was pretty damn good (their second best album IMO despite some weaknesses) but with heaps better production. Don't care about the lyrics as usual but songwriting is pretty good and performances are great. I like it, sounds promising.

There is no 13 minute song, all of them except the into are the usual 4-6 minute runtime, The Catastrophist is actually the longest song on the album.

At this point the band has evolved into/established their own sound that I think is fine, but I'm not crazy for. I loved Ascendancy and Shogun so much, and even parts of Crusade/In Waves/Sin and Sentence.

I'm probably the only one thinking this, but it'd be cool if they tried an "Ascendancy Part 2" in terms of songwriting. Ascendancy was very simple with some impressive technical stuff that arguably helped put the band on the map (as well as their "Master of Puppets" cover). I'd be really okay with the idea of them making a new LP with that approach. "Ascendancy" remains a fun album to this day.
