    So I just came across this. The music is fantastic as always, still fallujah being fallujah. However, that new vocalist is... yeesh awful :ugh::ugh:

    I honestly don't know this band too well, but this dude's vocals just does not fit with the music. It sounds so monotone, like the same note the whole time.

    Honestly couldn't tell its Fallujah until Scott's solo kicked in, such a downgrade from their previous works...heartbroken.

    I don't quite get why everyone hates the vocals so much.

    I feel like we need to talk about the real issue here, they've exceeded the maximum allowable undercuts for one band. I count 3. :nono:

    lmao wow what an outrageous amount of butthurt. Metal band debut their "poppiest" single first... news at 11. seriously do you people pay literally no attention whatsoever to album promotion cycles?

    anyway I like it. Logical progression for them.

    I always moan on when bands just do the same thing over and over again so credit to them for trying something different.

    After Dreamless, I can't say I'm surprised.
    Got into them with Nomadic, loved The Harvest Wombs, and The Flesh Prevails was their best work imo. Dreamless felt like a really, really weak album to me, especially after the high that was TFP- so again...can't say I'm too surprised. Kind of a bummer.

    The song itself was alright, kinda boring and riff-less compared to their other stuff. The vocals dont fit their sound at all, he's not bad but he sounds like he should be in 36 Crazyfists or something like that, not a tech-death band. I'll probably end up skipping this album.

    That's what he was reminding me of, it's been bugging me. That or pre-KSE Howard Jones.

    Yeah I'm not begrudging them too much, it's still good; it just doesn't sound like Fallujah. If they want to change their sound more power to them, it still sounds great for what it is. Not gunna pretend I'm not a little disappointed though.

    Now that's a lot better! As a first time listener, the vocals actually work with the music. These new ones are awful. Nothing against the music itself.

    don't take this new single as something that's in any way indicative of old fallujah. dreamless and all their older albums are fantastic blends of ambience and tech death

    Ambience and metal you say? Oh my... my all time favorite kind of metal. Be right back, going to listen to older Fallujah

    Check out Sapphire off of The Flesh Prevails. Best song they've ever written imo; that outro is GOAT material.

    Okay... that's a fantastic song right there. Definitely adding a couple of their albums to my Spotify library.

    Sapphire gets my daughters stoked when they hear the intro and they're six. That song rules. Fallujah has been a favorite of mine for years, Dreamless and everything prior, I love it. I just skip the electro-ambience tracks and the songs that rip make up for it. It's true, they've had that trajectory since Nomadic, so the writing was on the wall.
    I love the old stuff too much to EVER listen to this new track. RIP, many great albums remain.
