lol agreed w everyone that nik nocturnal is a clown

band rules song is bound to polarize since its like 95% clean singing but both barr and terry sound so good and it still instrumentally mostly feels like volumes just more subdued (that 2nd verse has hella djunz even if its underneath barr's smooth singing). vocal melodies are pretty basic but on the good side of basic (as are honestly most of their hooks that arent edge of the earth). albums looking to be more varied than usual which im here for

this song actually gave me big hope for the new volumes record. the new songs are good, but they've got that slow/sludge groove vibe, which is okay, but without the speed or techy ness of VIA, i need meloddddddyyyyy.

always wanted both of them doing cleans in my heart of hearts tbh

"dude, that new invent animate tho. i like them again" hell yes brother been hooked on it absolutely killer stuff

and yea even on via the melody has always been a huge part of what i like about them, which on that record (since it only has 2 clean choruses lol) came mostly through the beautiful clean guitar passages that filled up the atmosphere. these other new songs havent rlly been goin for melody and theyve been tight but ive missed it so its cool having it so prevalent on here both vocally and in the background instrumentation

i think its funny to see people giving them shit when A) like a decade has passed and B) their founding fucking guitarist died who obviously was a huge part of their artistic spark.

the fact theyre still making music given the vocalist switches and losing YAYGO just makes me proud of them. plus barr kicks ass, and the music industry and whats popular now is waaaaay diff than in 2010 when they dropped wormholes you know?

"side note, it annoys me to no end seeing a stupid nik nocturnal comment on EVERY new song in the genre. cringe as fuck, gtfo"

It annoys me to no end seeing douches with the little check mark symbol getting thousands of upvotes for just saying something super generic, as if somehow the video has anything to do with them personally

i actually think Myke's parts here remind me of Pullin Shades or some of the ballad type stuff they did on Animals

in retrospect, that record was really forward thinking, but also really fucking weird lmao

it would be really cool if Volumes brought Gus back and Myke left (and eventually would come back) to do some solo stuff (like Gus is doing rn) and there was no beef and it was kind of like a DGD swap in or out vocalist band. cuz they could drive up demand for certain pairings as they change over albums

Huh, the title track is a rework from Via? That's a good sign. I think its gonna rule besides the awful album art

a re work from via is just such a gift tbh

hope this isn't the last volumes record, but they *do* seem to be running out of the stuff we all love the MOST (intricate guitar..)

I can't help but like this band for some reason but honestly I've been disappointed with the singles they've put out since Barr came back.

I enjoyed their last EP with Gus a lot and thought Different Animals was also good in its own way. Sounds like their sound is changing quite a bit again with this new album.

i think since volumes started back up with Barr (2020?) the singles have gotten softer. holywater is hard as fuck not a single clean in there.

i think this album will be really varied if theres stuff from VIA-era, RnB pop like this, and stuff like holywater

onionbubs

according to them theres stuff harder than pixelate/holywater on the record

i think i heard barr say that the back half of the record feels like hes going through a black hole? lol cant remember where i heard that tho

lol onion, thats such a interesting comment. i wonder what that means. maybe its hella spacey DJONTY boi music.

and yeah, Pixelate and Holywater both scratch the Volumes itch for me. weighted less so oddly. it felt a little vague and odd

I didn't know what a "nik nocturnal" was because I'm over 30 and then I looked and I saw the thumbails and I regretted my decision and got a flashback to one time YouTube autoplayed a video of his and I didn't know what was wrong with the dude because he provided no entertainment value and bugged the fuck out of me
