Chuck Billy loves himself a guest appearance doesn't he

I've listened to Melancholy quite a bit in the past couple of years, and the new single out today is quality, very excited for this album

Gave Melancholy a perfect score, so I can't wait to hear this. Both of the singles so far, as well as the Lamb of God cover, have been fire. Very excited for this record.

But you gave it a 9? are you so hard to impress?
Heavy Metal is the law that keeps us all united free
A law that shatters earth and hell

I absolutely adored "Melancholy" so this is no surprise that I also find this excellent. More spins will be required to say if it surpass the previous album, but I'm very impressed with this. "Farewell", "The Coming Fire", "Life of Exile" and the ending trilogy of songs are my favorite ones. That opening song just hit so hard. They stepped up the game when it comes to orchestrations. 2022 off to a great start.

This band is so great that there has been no single day without listening at least a song from them for me like 2 years. and this album expresses their musical advancement in terms of brutality and gravity. yea, so much heavier musically and lyrically and.. ben's vocals... yea he outclasses mikael's for me. sorry mikael my man but this dude is slightly better:) for death vocals he is no1 for me.

And also imo this album's strength comes from the fact when you think the song is going to chill in a second but it gets more brutal and faster which leaves you beaten in a good way:)

Dark Forever
Ruído Sonoro
Brilliantly executed, sounds huge and I love this mix of Deathcore with symphonic elements (even though I'm not a big Deathcore fan). However, I'm not digging the vocals, Too many layers and effects, and while sometimes they do fit the instrumental, I think the album would benefit from a less over-the-top approach to vocals in some places. Apart from that, great job in the production also.
Taste the DARK...
... and you'll live FOREVER!
