    I came in because I was expecting a horrible un-dynamic "br00tulz" band and wanted to see if it was as bad as I was expecting. It was worse, in fact, and I was impressed.

    I can't stand this kind of music normally, but this is just a hilariously bad example of the breed.

    My sisters boyfriend is good friends with them and i just heard the album. A lot better then what i expected and im the usual emmure hater...ill never really enjoy the vocals but the guitar tones sound great. It sounds like they change them throughout too. I think you guys are gonna like this one despite the usual emmure crap like that slow song they try to make melodic and that overused breakdown their playing to be as heavy as possible at live shows but none the less its gonna be a good release...btw their next album is gonna be on a new label which means they might have a whole new sound after this cd but who knows

    there's a point where expressing dislike of a band in one of it's threads becomes trolling. typically when someone posts it more than a few times or goes out of their way to describe in detail just how much the hate said band without even commenting on the OP's embedded video.

    it sets a bad example for other users. imagine if every thread were like that.

    its....diffrent I'll give you that but with how much detail he described how mach he hated emmure I would figure that he would steer clear of anything Emmure, I am not a big Emmure fan by no means the the tone is pretty awesome on this album, but that was border line trolling .02

    They're from Connecticut... Also, I'm from Brooklyn and I prefer the Yankees... It's the NY Yankees not the Bronx Yankees... and don't argue my point with "THE BRONX BOMBERS". what ever... I'll get a NY Yankees logo on my guitar

    I dunno, I downloaded the leak, and it sounds much better than the stream. So maybe it's just YouTube. I was listening to the 720p feed, btw.

    Bullshit

    Sounds like a closet-fan. :lol:

    Anyway, I have a friend with the leak... but I think I'm gonna wait till Tuesday. I heard one song, "My Name Is Thanos" and it was the shit.

    And how I wish some of their old songs had the new album's production!

    Like this, one of my absolute favorites from them. (1:22 is the shit, that damn near scared me when I was uh... not sober, haha)

    Because a good friend at my local Hot Topic hooked me up, I've got my hands on the actual CD! It's just what I was hoping for it to be, and there's definitely a lot here than even just casual deathcore listeners should be able to enjoy.

    There is something very wrong with this album, though. It has 15 songs and is only about 40 minutes long.

    Yeah, I saw the run times for all the songs, apparently a lot of them are very short.

    Nothin' wrong with just gettin' to the point in the songs, right?

    I can't wait for this album, I don't care if 7string thinks it's not cool enough - or too cool, whatever the case may be.

    I'm one of those Emmure haters, And I still like what I hear in these previews.
    Solar flare homocide is really catchy, IMO.

    Not sure why everyone hates Emmure so much. Not a scene-ster, but I like the anger Felony had and SotD is pretty damn good so far.

    I don't hate Emmure by any means, but I haven't liked the previous albums (the previously mentioned shrill voiced shrieks really irritate me, as well as the general "wigerness" that pervades the albums (probably has more to do with their image than actual sound)). However, I plan on giving this an unbiased listen. I didn't care much for the Acacia Strain either, but I really like Wormwood. Maybe this will be good too? :shrug: You know, since they rip them off and all. :lol:

    The "wiggerness" transcends their image and finds its way in their sound via the shameless Fred Durst tribute vocals.

    Nah, cause Wormwood is just a boring, uninspired version of Catch Thirtythree, whereas I don't know what this came from :lol:
