Sounds good. Their first two albums are pretty great, but I fucking detest Scurrilous (C'est la Vie is the single great song on it). This song is definitely not the best they can do, but it's far better than most of the last album.

Art sucks. Singer belongs in a pop/punk band.

Excellent track and insane production! All the additional vocals/growls are placed so randomly and so effective...

Awesome. As always. That outro solo is phenomenal.

Sounds a little recycled though, like as if it could have been a B side for Fortress.

Sounds pretty promising, Protest have yet to let me down and it doesn't look like they're going to start with this album.

Really nice artwork. About the song itself, it definitely has a different sound to Scurrilous (which is probably a good thing, because I feel like Scurrilous is approaching perfect and they'd really struggle to top it). It sounds darker and more serious, which is cool but if there rest of the album's like it I'll miss the fun feel of Scurrilous. Still, it's a really neat song which keeps my expectations high, although Rody's not quite as impressive on it as he was on the last album for some reason.
