That's what I love about the band, every album feels like another geology lesson, and luckily I have a great interest in the what they talk about, it's all so fascinating to me

Intro already sounds massive, production is good. Honestly I'd rather just hear the record in full than a single but I'm glad this part II is finally coming along. Honestly didn't know this band was German too, just thought they were from the US haha

Will they ever stop being so damn huge? Their sound is so dense without feeling cluttered in the soundscape.

I have a rule not to listen to singles anymore because I listened to "The Coin Has A Say" by Every Time I Die like 40 fuckin times before the album came out and I ruined the song.

I just broke that rule and it was fucking worth it.
