Song owns very hard, I like it more than a good handful of tracks on s/t and that's saying a lot considering how much I liked s/t lol.

Very hype for the deluxe, I need to hear that Muse cover lmao

Well from what I've known about you on the site I'd just say you don't dig this style, because this is truly peak of this little pocket of metalcore at this point in time imo. What is it that you don't really vibe with? And what do you wanna hear as opposed to what they do? It's certainly not a sound that every core fan will like I totally get that

Progressive metalcore at its best.. I liked their first album, then the next ones not so much but their last year's s/t was definitely one of the best best progmetal releases of 2021.. yeah, I want more the new ERRA as they write right now only great songs

JeetJeet Of course I know about Invent, Animate.. I like them but I definitely prefer new ERRA to them .. I don't know why would I need to like one band and hate the other one.. you know guys, you can like more bands than just one - I like ERRA, I like Invent, Animate and I like other progmetalcore bands .. still, I like new ERRA a little bit more than IA - better groove, better melodies, better heavier parts, better vocals, more complex song structures and so on but still IA are great.. but yeah, this is Sputnik so I either like one or the other band, otherwise my taste is shit.. well, fuck Sputnik then

For me that is still Augment. But this song actually reminded me of that album in few parts.

Specially that groovy guitar during Jesse's vocal part.

ya as someone where both incarnations of the band have put out literally my favorite music ever, i typically do understand where the criticism this band faces comes from and its j usually all stuff i like/dont mind about the band so idc thus j kinda reaffirming why i love them lol, but i have never for a second understood the whole "all their songs sound the same" comment. seen it a couple of times and especially nowadays i dont hear it at all. theyve been cyclin through a lotta different vibes lately

ill cop to their song structures rn not being the most diverse but they dont need to be when all the parts rule! lotta those songs wouldnt be as successful without revolving around the hook bc the hooks all kick ass, plus the verses vary up the riffing on most tracks anyway so its not even like theyre particularly repetitive songs

"Absolutely untrue lmao"

Nah that's true, you're just putting the band on a high horse cause you like them a lot. They have shifted in sound, yes, but that was about 7 years ago. Ever since 2018 they've been pretty stagnant, and they've only dumbed the music down on every release it seems. Their current output has sounded samey as hell, it's executed well, but samey nonetheless.

"i’m kinda only into this band for their melodic stuff now cuz almost all of the heavy parts are boring."

I've always found the heavy parts of Erra pretty lacking honestly, melody is king in this band. They've always been kind of an afterthought to me as is, but here I think it's even more so. Here it feels like JT is literally just here to scream some things and then leave, cause its metalcore, they have to do that. The formula is just so blatant.

is "starting and ending really soft but consolidating all the heavy and riffage in the middle" not a different formula than the songs that are mostly centered around the heavy or centered around the cleans? lol

Man, I don’t get this band at all. They are beloved on here and at most shows I used to go to pre-pandemic and they’re so fucking boring to me.
The part at 2:48 is pretty sick, but I hate both vocalists so much.

Some of the “these guys are absolutely terrible” comments are so dramatic. I completely understand if this genre or band in general aren’t someone’s cup of tea, but also it’s ridiculous to imply these guys aren’t very talented

Regarding song structure- This is basically mainstream Metalcore (and this is a single)…. why would anyone expect this to be an experimental prog song

""Nooooo bands must push the envelope and do something no band has ever done before or its shit!!1!""
