    For the fans of Emmure on here, they have a new teaser for the album!



    I'm pretty let down by the album artwork, but the sound clip has me looking past that :agreed:

    Before this thing gets trolled, a warning seems necessary. Please be respectful in your tone here. Voice displeasure in the song if you want, hell, voice displeasure in the band if you want. "They're a buncha fags" "everything they do is garbage" "fuck deathcore forever" is unnecessary.

    I say this because we've had a few "Fuck Emmure" threads here and its been made clear that seems to be the reaction of some people around here. Again, voice displeasure if you want but don't be an uncivil dickbag about it or you're getting banned. There's everybody's warning.

    The song doesn't sound like much, but the tone sounds fan-friggin-tastic IMO. :eek:

    I really don't think that they are popular enough for that.

    Anyway, who's engineering and, or producing the album? That tone is pretty effin' crushing. I need to find out some details :cool:

    i dont know if my ears are failing me or not, but they're using 8s on this album arent they?

    while i wasnt that big a fan of Emmure's guitar tones from Goodbye to the Gallows (kind of buzzy) and Felony (it's decent, but imo, Respect Issues tone was a bit better), i gotta give it to 'em on this record

    :agreed: I don't listen to Emmure very often but when I do it's The Respect Issue, I really liked that tone.

    In terms of this teaser I can't really get a good idea of what the new album will be like but the production quality sounds amazing IMO

    ... Actually I listened to it again as I wrote this, sounds like this album could be dark. I have high hopes!

    I'm stoked for this, the production quality is just insane. That guitar tone is ignorant, and probably a POD because they recorded with Joey Sturgis and that's all he uses. How he gets a POD to sound the way he does I'll never know hahaha.

    He's a fucking wiz at post-production. I hate him :squint:...In a good way.

    At least now I understand why it sounds so ballsy. He and Joshua Wickman need to write a book titled, "PODs, How To Make 'em Sound Godly".

    Not surprised at all with that direction considering Felony had a very big nu-metal feel. I like them theyre one of those fun bands to jam to :hbang:

    Not so much the tone, rather the whole production sounds pretty good

    Man I really hate Emmure, but seriously, that tone is amazing. They've always had amazing production, and that guitar tone is definitely one of the best I've ever heard.

    A LOT of people bash on PODs and POD Farm, but in reality those are the same people that couldn't put a SM57 in front of a cab and get a good sound.
    If you don't have the ear, the feel and the knowledge for it, it doesn't matter what you use, it will sound horrible.
    An understanding of frequencies and how to really fit a guitar tone in the mix goes a long way in achieving a great sound with amp sims.
