    I don't why I like these guys over the rest of the sub-genre, but I do. The linked song is pretty good (i.e. solid fit into their catalog), but those string gauges though....

    Not a massive fan of this band but man their guitarist has such a tight, unique style.

    I actually think this is lower. ATB is at C#0, I believe. And it sounds like mud and fart when they hit the C#, too (though I did love the album, I think it could have been produced better).

    The tone on this is massive though. Seems a little too aggressively gated though, like the notes cut out too early in the start-stop parts. I like it though.

    I like the new song, but the jury's still out for my expectations of the album. I was hoping for something more in the vein of Invade, and less Elite. Oh well, Elite was good too :lol:

    Ya ATB was C#0 which is why I think its crazy this sounds so much better.

    I'm excited, I just love Joe Cocchi's guitar work.

    His guitar work is seriously impeccable. I never actually knew how hard his stuff was until I tried to learn it. After that I started hearing things in a new light. Especially the Creature stuff. And on those thick ass strings too? Pffffff

    Dude's on a 26.5" and uses a .90 for his low F? I'm using a .60 at 25.5" for my low F (I'm in drop F, so essentially the top 6 of his tuning). That shit blows my mind.

    I like it. His guitar tone is amazingly tight on the low end but I've always thought his higher register playing sounded a little computer-esque. Still love Feeding Frenzy ;)

    Anybody notice there's going to be an Ataxia III on the new album? LOL.

    I'm always impressed by Joe Cocchi's guitar work. Unbelievable underrated player IMO.

    those guitars sound like they're programmed or tracked note by note.

    I don't know why but this comment on the video amuses me:
    To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of this kind of production but it's everywhere lately- the super tight modeled and edited/gated guitar sounds, the programmed/sampled drums, brickwall mastering, etc. The fact that I can hear the gate release on the guitar in some parts (or maybe it was edited that way on purpose) is annoying to my ears. The instruments don't sound like they're in the room with you, they just kind of exist in a void somewhere, and I'm not entirely convinced that the guitarists could recreate the same sound with a real amp and no editing.

    It's not objectively 'bad', but it would be nice to see a return to real drums, real amps, more dynamic mixes, etc.
