    I think I'm in the minority in saying that "We Are the Nightmare" did very little for me. It felt very clinical. Sure, it's a monstrous technical album, but I didn't *feel* anything listening to it. "A Celebration of Guilt" is a whole other kettle of fish. That is an album that inspires the fingers and the fists in equal measure. "A Diamond for Disease" is exhausting but rewarding. "United In Regret" is still a perfectly good album, but coming off the incredible highs of ACOG and ADFD, it couldn't really compare (although Hopeless Truth is a personal favorite).

    Sadly I haven't listened to "Starve for the Devil" or "Unwelcome" in their entirety.

    You're hardly in the minority. Darren was in the band at the label's demand and they all hated him. He was way over the top in every regard except his hitting which was problematically triggered. I don't think anyone in the band at that time is happy with how that album came out, that is besides Darren. I thought the album was good enough at the time, but the drumming is just stupid.

    Oh man, thank you for saying so. I absolutely HATE the drumming on that album. I honestly thought I was in the minority as well. The album itself has some great songs, but the drumming distracts me.

    I got into them around the United in Regret album and then went on to Celebration of Guilt. I liked some songs from their other releases (WATN, SFTD and Unwelcomed) but not as a full album like these two. I am looking forward to the new album based on that sample of the new songs though.
