    At least it tells you EXACTLY what kind of metal you're about to listen to...

    I'd put £5 on to say both of those covers were done by the same artist anyway.

    This album is awesome. Still trying to hold on the old days of popping open the cd case for a first listen? :lol: I actually did get a shirt/cd bundle, but it was mostly just that I wanted a shirt. I rarely ever buy a physical copy anymore.

    I'm listening to the stream now and I think that the drums have definitely kicked it up a notch. Alan is destroying that kit. I loved TCSOL but after a billion listens I've needed new music. This is great so far, I'll need to listen to it a lot and buy it because on the first listen for me it sounds a bit same and bleeds together, then again so does every album I listen to for the first time.

    Brody's solos are dope though. Really stepped up his game.

    This is the death metal album I've been waiting for, I don't know what it is, but their style is the kind of music I've wanted for so long.

    I really liked the first one, but this one is better. I think I have listened to it all the way through about 5x now. It's even got my attention over the new Ghost album and I love Ghost.:hbang:

    The burning question is... are they still tuning to F?

    I think so... Brody (also his username) is a member here, you could PM the dude and maybe he will be kind enough to answer if it is truly burning you.:lol:

    Haha.. not really that burning.. I always find the title of the thread somewhat humorous.

    The new record is pretty boss though. Looks like they're doing a record release party in Brooklyn tonight.

    Brody says they've been at Drop F# at least since TCSOL. Rain Eater is Drop F# I know that.

    This album is so sick. The breakdown on Ancestral, I around 3:20? Beastly.

    Love that guitar tone (Uberschall Kemper profile?) too, especially with that thick gritty bass under it.

    This album is way better than The Conscious Seed Of Light (which wasn't bad either!).
    Production is way better, the guitar solos are absolutely lovely, vocals are better, songs are more catchy and experimental at the same time....great album.

    Just working my way through my first listen now. Holy .... these guys killed it this time around, some of these riffs are just :hbang: like Dehydrate? holy fvck that is heavy.

    Loving the overall tone of the mix too, in a time when so many bands are going for a MIDI-esque overly polished phony sound this is just so raw, gritty and heavy.
