Disillusion dropped their previous album one week after Fear Inoculum, following a gap in releases almost as long as Tool’s infamous hiatus. Thankfully, it’s been a much shorter wait to hear what they had in store for us next.

Am I the only getting Katatonia (on steroids) vibes on this one? I really liked the album, AOTY material for sure

Nope. I, too, experience this. There are the post/close to TGCD era Katatonia feels in there.

Doesn't top Back to Times but the second best for sure.

I hear it in moments in the songs, but it's not the dominant vibe I take away from the album. Too dynamic overall. Katatonia is more pop/singer songwriter in their approach these days, and Disillusion is more symphonic.

But they can both really nail a melancholy moment.

Indeed. It's more from the instrumental aspect. Leads, tones. Very brief, very limited.

I have mixed feelings about fear innoculum

Wonder how much of that occasional Katatonia vibe is owing to Bogren's hand in the tones and the mix?

Nah, I hear the same in the softer parts.
Absolutely love this album, strong AOTY contender.

After a while, I think I like this better than Wilderun, I didnt think anyone could compete with them, but here we are. Much better than their own last album, I dont think theres anything better released this year

Driftwood and Longhope are my favourite songs, such emotional ballads, I love this whole thing
