Just like band each album whit new songs, but basic screamo singing and melodic death metal stays and not sell out either.

I don't have high expectations for this one, ATG peaked far too early for me, they've not really done anything that decent other than Slaughter Of The Soul Imo.

Maybe we have different taste? Its a possibility that some people dont agree. Food for thinking mind

Much much much better than their last one. Even though not anywhere near to their older ones. Lot of tracks are fir repeat listens.

What a pleasant surprise, have been listening to this non stop. I really like the direction they took with tracks like Cosmic Pessimism, Cult of Salvation , The Fall Into Time, Garden of Cyrus, which tried to go a little beyond the realm of the genre they helped inventing. The best album since the come back

The music's very solid, but damn Tomas Lindberg's vocals aren't easy to listen to these days

I think I like this one a bit more than the previous one. I feel that there's a bit more variety to find in this one (which spices things up a bit more than that previous album).

Haven't listened to this but those were my exact thoughts the last time I saw them live. The vocals ruined pretty much every enjoyable song or moment.

The vocals are indeed the weak point but I was never a fan of them anyway. Musically, this is the best ATG since the comeback, the prog elements shine so bright on this. I am very pleasantly surprised.

Did Tomas Lindberg record all the vocals while he was sick because of COVID?

Thank God I wasn't the only one disappointed with the vocal performance. Musically this is the closest to dissonant death metal I have heard.

Finally got around to giving this CD a proper listen. Musically this might be their best since SotS, but the vocals just make it unlistenable.

Album starts somewhat predictably but graudually becomes better. All I can hear is Tompa's tired old vocals though. Does it get better or worse if I keep forcing myself to listen?
