He honestly sounds like Trevor at times and the band still sounds great.

They still sound on point but I was kind of hoping they might sound a bit more revitalized. This was a pretty safe single.

Yeah, this was pretty damn good. Not TBDM's best work obviously, but still solid. Also, despite not being written by Trevor, the lyrics are way better than I thought they'd be

Solid song. Brian sounds like he's kinda low in the mix but maybe that's just me. It's kinda surprising how similar to Trevor he sounds.

Song rips as usual

I'm glad the boys are back and continuing on, but this sounds like 100 other TBDM songs. You can hear the Statutory Ape riff in the main riff of this song.

Way too safe instrumentally, my first listen didn’t leave any sort of impression. Vocals sound solid though.

Loving it the more I listen to it. Brian definitely has a similar sound to Trevor but you can tell he still has room to improve. The production kind of kills the guitars for me though. Either way, I'm hyped

Not very memorable but not bad. I want more epics like sunless empire. Do the guitars sound a little buried? Drums are cranked tho.

Yeah, guitars are a little lost in the mix, which sucks cause what you can make out sounds like some very sick riffage.

never really got into them but it’s fucking terrible what happened to them.

Agree with everyone saying that they’re just glad the band is still going.

The lead singer did backing vocals the entire time that they've been a band, so it's not like you haven't heard him in their previous releases.

Yea, I didn't really know that either until I looked it up after hearing the new song earlier. I saw them live a long time ago, but I don't remember anything about it besides Trevor screaming "Closed Casket Requiem!" at the beginning of that song because I was drunk lol

I mean if people here didn't have a chance to see them live I'd say def go for it. Trevor situation is sad af but I'm fine with them continuing the legacy

Ok this song fucking ripz. Definitely nothing new but the riffage cannot be denied. Ryan being back in the band is a huge plus.

agreed with yall, this isn't a breath of fresh air or anything novel for them, but Brian sounds not just good, but quite a bit like Trevor sometimes.

Honestly if you had told me this was some unreleased old track with Trevor I would have believed you. Brian sounds almost exactly like Trevor.
