    it's crazy to see where this band has gone. i remember when they were just some rich kids from Alamo, CA playing deathcore. Alex was still doing Deadbolt designs. he did a free logo for my incredibly shitty old band. good times

    I just listened to the new song again with headphones. Although the song is repetitive, I don't think it's bad. And I won't judge the new vocalist until I have heard more.

    Might be the first Fallujah song I can learn to play more than 2 bars of at half speed.

    Same. It wasn't as good as the earlier stuff and didn't really feel like a Fallujah song to me, but it was still pretty damn good.

    Oh man, definitely same :lol:

    This one feels like he was trying to go for Alex's style with those moody whisper things in the beginning. Felt very fallujah. Not bad.

    These two songs have been very repetitive and not as insane slap-you-in-the-face-with-riffs as I'm used to from them. Kinda disappointed with the lack of riffage.

    Not terrible, but it feels like they phoned it in a little bit. I want more riffzzz

    So... they turned into a hardcore/metalcore influenced "progressive band". Nothing wrong with those, but this band changing into that is disappointing.

    Neat, more riffless atmosphere with whiny vocals. Its like Scott forgot how to write a tech-death song.

    I don't know anything about this band but I like tool riffs with smears of guitar on top so it's not bad, to me,

    haha WOW okay yeah they should've changed names for this new stuff, this isn't even apples and oranges, it's apples and rhinoceroses

    (I still like the new song better than this but that's just me, I find tech metal kind of samey after 30 seconds)

    This is going to be good when the intro stops and they actually kick into the song proper, right?

    I mean, the video stopped 10 minutes ago and I've been sat here in despondent silence ever since, but the requisite fire will be brought any second now, right?

    Right?


    Having said all that, credit to them for trying something different.

    Its... Just not Fallujah? That being said the vocalist fits what they are doing here.

    I have the album a listen through this morning, and I’m surprised I enjoyed it as much as I have. Not as good as fallujah before the two gents left (I suppose they had a major influence on the writing, given the new direction) but it’s not awful. Still not really into the new vocal style, it’s very monotonous aside a few passages.
