Here we go again into disappointment city.
Hell yeah, my favorite city. Second to Number City!
band sounds like hamilton
Digging: deepincision - 2021 demo
And the proggiest album title of 2022 goes to...
I'll temper expectations, I've been consistently disappointed with their output since Year of the Black Rainbow. These guys are at their best when they pair proggy song structures, shredding, and poppy but heartfelt melodies. Just not a fan of the theatricality and declining technicality and ability to write earworms. They're doing them, and that's great, and most musicians change their preferences and the type of material they want to / can play as they age, but I'm about ready to throw in the towel.
I know I shouldn’t check this…but imma go check this.
I stopped listening after that rainbow album. Did I miss anything?
yes. you missed two of their best
this is gonna own, Rise is such a ripper
Digging: Broken Social Scene - Old Dead Young (B-Sides & Rarities)
If you missed The Afterman records you should go back and check those.
There's a bit of everything on them, some great variety which was always one of Coheed's strengths on their first few albums.
Check out Domino The Destitute, Gravity's Union, Sentry The Defiant and The Homecoming which should give you a nice slice of modern Coheed.
really liked a lot of the first Vaxis tbh. first half of that (minus the title track, that one's meh) is probably the coheed i come back to the most lmfao
Digging: Owel - The Salt Water Well
these sounds kind of promising. that lead line in the second video does not fit AT ALL tho sounds like it's in a completely different key
Digging: Seer Believer - Bent
I liked it for the most part, and it was a welcome return to the concept after TCBTS.
Something awesome about Ascension/Descension is I enjoy them from front to back like their earlier stuff. I never listen to Unheavenly Creatures in full as there's too much filler even early on in the album imo.
This one has a few less tracks so hoping there's a bit more quality in there.
Vaxis slaps but these singles are not inspiring confidence in the sequel.
Love me some Coheed, but man their album art is becoming mind-bogglingly bad.
Digging: Laura Stevenson - Laura Stevenson
i wonder if that user is gonna make another 70 plus alts to 5 this
It’s Coheed so I hope they do. Although I’m not warm to Coheed in recent years…will always be hopeful. Here’s to a new Coheed and Cambria album. 🍻
mfw still never heard a coheed song
ive heard like ten seconds before and the vocals made me turn it off
Digging: Dance Gavin Dance - Afterburner
At this point that’s okay though Second Stage Turbine Blade has songs you’d like.
Album art looks like a shitty movie poster lol
Digging: Earl Sweatshirt - Sick!
Glad it’s not 15 songs. Upset there’s no vinyl preorder. Is there really a market for deluxe CD box sets in 2022…?
please be good please be good
shoulders was blah but i thought rise naianasha was good
was the last one always called vaxis 1? never realized. it was really good tho
@anthracks bands can’t do vinyl stuff anymore without at least half a year delay
so i should start from turbine blade ?
Either that or Good apollo I
Turbine Blade and go chrono, any of the first three are good start points
Digging: Astrobrite - Pinkshinyultrablast
@sometimes any of their first 3 are good starting points and their best
Are the enemies called Anti-Vaxis
Whoa Shoulders sucked ugh, the second track is alright.
Digging: Anna von Hausswolff - Live at Montreux Jazz Festival
The first Vaxis was great, albeit too long. Most likely this one will be the same.
Digging: Papir - 7
"these sounds kind of promising. that lead line in the second video does not fit AT ALL tho sounds like it's in a completely different key"
Sounds like the end of the preceding song leading into it.
that interlude in Naianasha highlights how nice Claudio's vox can be. kinda like when The Dear Hunter lets off the gas a little and Casey has more room to breathe.
Shoulders was a dud the first time I heard it but this time it kinda worked for me. Eppard is killing it, at least
Don't really understand the hate for Shoulders. Honestly think it hits harder than anything from Unheavenly Creatures. It's nice to hear the guys let loose and bring back the energy again.
