How is nobody talking about this brilliant song!
Yhea nice song, just a little having the feeling that I heard it before. It's good for sure, only a little flat or something, don't know how to say it...
gonna be a big pass on those vocals for me dawg
The chorus reminds me of Mikasa a lot. Not a bad song, though. Love the synth solo.
At this point I'd prefer it if they ditched the breakdowns and just focused more on writing that sort of technical poppy stuff with the occasional screaming section. This song wasn't really my cup of tea in general, but that "heavy" part in the middle sounded like complete garbage to me. These guys have never been masters at structuring songs, but this was a whole 'nother level of shoehorning.
Dude really has a hard on for sounding as much like Spencer as he can doesn't he?
Mix is odd although people are saying it sounds better on spotify and Apple Music. I really like the chorus but the structure and transitions are messy. Keys are very cool! There's a really good song in there if they had put in more work to make it flow better.
Wow do I really hate when bands I once loved go soft and poppy. I still really enjoy driving around to The Common Man's Collapse, and I can't believe this is the same band, because my younger self would have thought you were full of shit if you showed me this song from the future of 2019 and told me this is what VoM would turn into. I got 40 seconds in and gave up on it.
Did Marc tune up to G# from F#? (or go back to drop B sixers???)
I like it more than anything off of False Idol already
I liked the first album with this vocalist, and I liked the blend of poppy choruses with heavy sections thrown in, but I just can’t dig this. Maybe it’s the mix that’s killing it for me, partly, but it doesn’t sound good at all. Everything sounds super weak. Northlane did it better, IMO.
i think he switched over to exclusively seven strings in Drop B+F# for a while now, so this is probably in that tuning
Yeah, there's definitely something a bit off in the mix. Took a while for my ears to get used to it, but after that it didn't bother me anymore.
It's not a bad song, but it doesn't sound like VoM at all IMO. If someone played this to me without telling me what band it is, I would've definitely guessed Periphery.
Mix is a little different, and not getting some transistions.
I like certain parts of it for sure, but it doesn't jel that well which is a shame.
I think it's a Taylor Larson mix like Matriarch was, sounds like it could easily be on that album. I grew up on CMC and consider the new stuff a different beast, I don't like it nearly as much but not bad by any stretch.
I haven't been into Veil of Maya since CMC, gave this a spin out of curiosity. Where's the originality? It just sounds...trendy and safe. If people like this, that's cool I guess, but it's flavor of the week material music now.
they need brandon back
he sounded like Spencer but better at first. He somehow sounds equally bad now
Ah well. Once upon a time these guys were super sick but those days are long gone now.. boggles my mind this is the mix they settled on. The mix on the last album was complete garbage too. Does Marc not give mix notes or something? Him and the bassist can absolutely shred and they are both buried
Yeah I'm gunna pile on here too. Did nothing for me. Mix sounded really off to me too.
Huge fan of the band though, and I really liked Matriarch and False Idol.
But guys, the songwriting is so much more mature....who needs sick riffs and shred when you can write like half a catchy chorus?
A good chorus can outweight most riffs and solos if done properly.
I think Marc needs to stick to six-strings again because it seems the production/mixing is compromising a lot of the tone from the lower-tuned strings.
