Don't forget unwelcome
That is my favorite arsis album
Wait, Brandon’s in TBDM now? Is Arsis like an entry into that band?
Yup, for about 2 years now.
I think I'm in the minority in saying that "We Are the Nightmare" did very little for me. It felt very clinical. Sure, it's a monstrous technical album, but I didn't *feel* anything listening to it. "A Celebration of Guilt" is a whole other kettle of fish. That is an album that inspires the fingers and the fists in equal measure. "A Diamond for Disease" is exhausting but rewarding. "United In Regret" is still a perfectly good album, but coming off the incredible highs of ACOG and ADFD, it couldn't really compare (although Hopeless Truth is a personal favorite).
Sadly I haven't listened to "Starve for the Devil" or "Unwelcome" in their entirety.
So many old man death metal bands are fucking killing it now a days.
You're hardly in the minority. Darren was in the band at the label's demand and they all hated him. He was way over the top in every regard except his hitting which was problematically triggered. I don't think anyone in the band at that time is happy with how that album came out, that is besides Darren. I thought the album was good enough at the time, but the drumming is just stupid.
Oh man, thank you for saying so. I absolutely HATE the drumming on that album. I honestly thought I was in the minority as well. The album itself has some great songs, but the drumming distracts me.
I got into them around the United in Regret album and then went on to Celebration of Guilt. I liked some songs from their other releases (WATN, SFTD and Unwelcomed) but not as a full album like these two. I am looking forward to the new album based on that sample of the new songs though.
This I absolutely agreed with. That drummer... it just felt like Darren was trying to hit everything as hard and fast as possible with no real purpose. I remember seeing them on that tour with a different drummer, and the drums sounded so much more coherent on those song.
Wow this is great news to hear. I saw Arsis quite some time ago and thought they put on a great live show. I'm excited of the thought of them putting out some new tunes.
Is Noah Martin still in the band? That dude was always a joy to watch live. I remember he rejoined the band but was still finishing school.
As fast as possible, but not as hard. He was a notoriously light hitter and apparently their original sound guy quit because they were having issues with the triggers not even picking up his hits. Also, three snares on the record and on tour. That dude was over the top in all the wrong ways. It's like one of those things that once you realize how crazy stupid his drumming is on Nightmare, it becomes almost unlistenable. Which is a damn shame because the songs are otherwise awesome.
I believe he is.
I haven't listened to them in some time but every now and again their older tunes come up on shuffle. I gotta give this a listen when it's out, but damn if The Face of My Innocence isn't a monster of a song and it's yet to be topped.
