I just don't like this incarnation of Candlemass

Was okay imo. The intro riff and verse are pretty cool. Not a fan of the chorus and the song overall was quite repetitive, especially the drums which barely change throughout the whole track.

Yeah, I already missed for Lowe on Door to Doom.
Riffs are Ok, but this archaeological excavation (Längquist) bringing the whole music down

The opening riff is quite Slayer-ish. I like it. As for Johan, he is the best vocalist they ever had, in my opinion. Of course, he has aged, and so has the band.

Don't know how to describe the atmosphere of the song...
It's like getting out of some black shiny super car in the post-apocalyptic world with the laser gun, prepared to shot zombies. They are getting out of the ruins and attacking, coming in swarms, but you're just too cool, and your fast, sharp sunglasses are cutting the zombies in pieces with it's reflection, glints and gleams of the wretched world. Zombies are having leather pants, and wooden planks, but you're even better than that - you're metal.
And you're going on, stepping on their smudged green spilled toxic brains, cause you're just too cool, even cooler than bewitched, knowing that the true darkness hides within.
May the meow force be with you

I’m honestly tired of seeing Costin’s art everywhere I look. These bands run too fast to the latest artist that it waters down my appeal seeing their outputs. Same with Eliran Kantor, it’s almost expected for him to be on the next major metal releases cover.

Would have been okay-ish if it was 3 minutes long, but at 5 minutes it's just boring.

Same here.
Bland, washed out music.

Stop it, Leif.
Give us one more good Krux album and take a rest, dear friend.
Play acoustic music [which I don't mind at all, always loved your melodies] and give us that, no more metal, Leif.

Yeah, it's not great. I liked a lot Door to Doom so for me it's not about "this encarnation" of the band...
Fingers crossed for the rest of the album

I do not like the production of this, especially the drums. Kind of a plodding song too, needs a little secret sauce to make it more interesting; and cut it down to a 3 minuteish length.

^Agreed, plodding is the best way to describe this. It has an okay riff but nothing of interest really happens. It makes any song off The Door To Doom sound like a masterpiece in comparison.

Not bad at all.
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.
