    Very surprised by how heavy that new Alcest song is.

    That Poppy song is surprisingly catchy! Definitely getting a Babymetal vibe.

    Here's Tony Kakko's latest sleep aid.

    That sonata song is so boring, none of the flair and catchiness. He sounds really burnt out like he’s not even trying. On the last album there was a song “till death do us apart” that was full of all the things I like about sonata so it’s not like he’s lost it.

    I remember a time when new Sonata stuff was exciting.

    If it was some other band than Sonata Arctica it would be pretty decent pop song, but not from these guys.

    I had a rant in other thread how bad new Equilibrium album is, it's serious disappointment as a whole. One or two decent songs and that's it.

    Putting the complete style change aside I really like the two singles, except the rap part. Are they the only decent songs?

    The first single Renegades - A Lost Generation kind of shows how the whole album sounds. There are really good moments but songwriting just lacks too much in my opinion. My favorite songs are Final Tear and Rise Of The Phoenix.

    Man, their first four albums are so good, and everything including Unia and after has been such a hard pass from me. I remember when Reckoning Night came out and it so much darker than stuff they'd done before and I was super stoked for them to do more like that. Then they didn't.

    ^Sounds more like Edguy/Avantasia than Dragonforce which is a nice change but I'm not feeling it. I didn't know Vadim left. His keyboard solos though sparse were often the standout points in their long solo sections and Above the Winter Moonlight is one my fav songs of theirs. He also wrote Body breakdown which had some refreshing tonal changes compared to the rest of Inhuman Rampage.

    I have this on repeat the last few days, its kicked everything else out of my playlist. I can understand your complaints but some sections are catching my ear. I hear a lot of Tracedawn sounding sections which is awesome since their last album was 2012 and the clean parts sound like Keldian.

    His wife got mad at them on instagram(which was pretty funny to me for some reason) because of how low key they were about him leaving, so it's not surprising you never heard until now. Those songs you mentioned are among my favorite DF tracks, he was super talented. Also Fred wrote this new song which is why it sounds so different, a lot of his ideas aren't quite in line with the band's general tone.

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned Teramaze yet, but another incredible album released a few weeks ago. I don't think it holds up to Her Halo, but it's still very solid. Also, they keep going back and forth with their singers. This is with their "old" singer and then announced a few weeks ago that Nathan Peachy is back again and there's apparently a Halo 2 in the works.

    Either way, I wish they'd gain some traction in the US. :(

    Some really nice instrumental metal that is actually metal and not post-rock, djent, and or ripping off Tosin. :yesway:
