A bit like Architects or Dragonforce where they do that one song exceptionally well. This one leans more to Melodic Death than black metal and Will's vocals are incredible regardless of repetition, his ability to swap between 3 voices and deliver so much emotion in those chorus sections. Knowing its 100% real and reproducible live makes it all the better.
Finally streamed the whole thing and it is very good. I know Colin is more known more for black-metal, but he always gets a great sounding album when he produces death metal. Sounds like actual instruments played by humans.
Huh, not bad. I was expecting State of Slow Decay to be an exception and the rest of the new album more in line with the previous rubbish, but I actually liked this even more. Sounds more like actual In Flames material too, rather than At the Gates like the other song.
Also... wtf is going on here:
They went from old school thrash to groove metal but now this is something different again and it's just not working for me.
And Stratovarius dropped another kinda generic song:
