    As with the previous 2 albums I'll give it a couple listens for sure, but his latest material doesn't hit like albums 2/3 for me. I like the second single over the first though, hope it's more of that.

    The more I listen to Lock & Key, more I like it. Kinda sounds like a step backwards to the sound of AVW and tSoC. Which I don't mind at all. I couldn't get into The Way Forward at all. Sounded just pretentious fusion noodling Plini-wannabe stuff to me.

    It was cool when he released the first album like this but seems like he got stuck in this mode. These songs were quite boring IMO.

    It's not bad. A bit simpler than the previous couple albums. Those Mayos are sounding great though.

    Cant wait for this, bought the tab book from SheetHappens the day it was announced and already got the tabs for both singles. Working on both.

    The Shape of Colour had some fun songs to play (I'm Awake, Sure Shot, Fable) but didn't hold my interest to well and the mixing left a bit to be desired, The Way Forward had better songs (Touch and Go, Rubicon Artist, The Waterfront, Leave No Stone) and mixing but still did absolutely nothing for me like A Voice Within and In Time. A Voice Within is one of my favorite prog metal/djent albums of all time, their lineup was perfect and I was seriously bummed when Mike, Lukas, and Anup left as they were the perfect lineup.

    That being said, Lock and Key is probably my favorite Intervals track he (they? if you count Nathan Bulla and Jacob Umansky) have put out since A Voice Within, such a fun track to listen to and I seriously didn't expect Joshua De La Victoria to have contributed that much to the song. 5-HTP is pretty good as well.

    Excited to see what this album holds.

    New song, pretty solid.

    I just checked my tab book and this song has almost no use of the 7th string other than a barre 49/50, then 118 - 145 which is a repeating riff over the measures. I'm definitely not one to tell people how to write their music, but seems like it was hardly used at all :lol:

    Still rock with it though, can't wait til next friday!

    Marco's Charvel is lovely, burgundy mist is a fantastic color.



    EDIT: I see Evan is already on it. :lol:

    The Charvel's alright but both of those Mayones are out of this world. I'd be happy with either the purple or the green one.

    Wait, Marco Sfogli is using Charvel now? Wasn't that guy always demoing Ibanez guitars and endorsed by them? What's with all the guitarists constantly changing camps these days...

    Aaron got a 6 string Core Classic last year that he hasn't used anywhere except on Instagram, but it's my favorite.

    Album's out! I really dig the album as a whole, it feels cohesive against itself.

    I spent the last two weeks learning Signal Hill from Aaron's instagram clips so that's definitely one of my favorite tracks. Lock & Key and Signal Hill are probably my favorites from the album.

    Straightforward rock album that really captures the Intervals sound. Great grooves and melodies all around, and nothing jarring or dragging. I'm enjoying everything on this one. Aaron has some of my favorite guitar tones as well, as "simple" as they are.

    I think this whole album will work awesome live as well, whenever that's able to happen. When I saw The Way Forward tour a couple of the slower tracks dragged a bit and it didn't feel like the band had the energy to get the crowd into those parts, especially when the high powered tracks like Sure Shot had the crowd bumping harder than I've ever seen from an instrumental rock band (especially for Japan with the sleepiest crowds in the world lmao).

    Not related to the album, but Gear Gods put out this video with more of that sick 7 string Regius.
