Turbowolf The Free Life
Seems they wanted to step up their game everywhere. Tight, unpredictable songs, improved vocal melodies, short and sweet runtime... and obviously infectious riffs from front to back. Quirky and full of curveballs. A madly catchy album with plenty of balls, at times instrumentally it sounds almost apocalyptic ("Last Three Clues"' chorus) and wasteland-esque. The t/t is particularly excellent and features all the things I opened this paragraph with (except it's the longest song), not to mention that it flows seamlessly into the surprisingly emotive "Concluder". I'm so glad that they finally delivered the great album I knew they had in them. Now
Judas Priest Stained Class
Korn The Paradigm Shift
Here Korn sound more like seasoned musicians having fun in the studio (and the documentary is proof) without the limitations of trying to satisfy a particular fanbase. It's not the usual bleak Korn sound. The soaring chorus of Mass Hysteria is a perfect example, or the tender section in Punishment Time, or the "crazy shaman" chanting in Lullaby for a Sadist, the mechanical-sounding bridge of What We Do... there are memorable moments distributed in every song. How to say it, it sounds like Korn, yes, but an adult version of the band. One that isn't afraid to let some instrumental colour slip into the angst. Perhaps, one thing I can say is that

  • manosg Happy new year, Sab! Glad you enjoyed Necromandus - yes the first song was written in the '70s but I think it's a new recording. It's nice to see when someone finally makes it.

  • BlackMalachite Honestly, the problems really haven't been showing up to me bar some annoying control s*** every once and a while. It's a pretty solid 8/10 game for me right now and I absolutely love the customization rewards I get with every level and the daily missions and such.

  • BlackMalachite So yeah I bought Sonic Forces and it's one of the best game purchases I've made all year.

  • BlackMalachite That's what I heard too, what exactly does 100% it entail?
