    Sounds a lot like the same sound they had on Earthsblood to me.....SEriously under-rated disc, that one was.....

    Since when have slides and bends become something other than slides and bends?

    Anyway - it's a great song. Mark Lewis also killed it with the production. Pretty excited for this record, that's for sure.

    Killer. I've always liked them, not fanatically, but respected. Put on a hell of a show, too. The tones do sound a little more 'djenty' (did I just say that? :facepalm: ) but still classic GF. This is a definite buy for me. :yesway:

    Sounds killer. I've been pretty eager to hear this album.

    And for the love of all things good in this world, PLEASE DO NOT TAG GOD FORBID WITH 'DJENT'...... :facepalm: God damn I hate that word.....

    Music sounds good. I can't get over the lyrics, though.

    i can see that main riff being culprit, but wouldn't call it jumping on the djent bandwagon so to speak. a lot has to do with it their switch to 7 strings from earths blood on. Drum-wise, a typical God Forbid rhythm... Looking forward to hear this record, first on without Dallas

    i really am enjoying this song, but i still prefer "Where We Come From". Such a catchy song that the entire crowd can get into.


    also, TheKilling, they are playing in C I believe, at least o WWCF

    lol yeah i get his point. i dont think the new track is djent but i made that the thread title because thats what 8459738974359834 people think it is and i figured id post it in a sarcastic way to promote discussion haha. i changed the thread title though so it will be THE GF thread.

    Haha. Also, I love the fact that he mentions A Life Once Lost. They get no credit and have influenced some of these newer "Djent" bands even if these bands know it or not. If you go check out the A Life Once Lost appreciation thread, you'll see I've been saying that for awhile.
