    I didn't think it was possible to make the Stolas video look high budget. I was wrong.

    I liked it, quite heavy as far as StS goes.

    Listening to the new album now. All the songs seem to work better in context of the album. So that's a plus.

    Yeah, I listened to the album twice through this morning at work. I really dig it. Another solid STS album for sure!

    There's something with the guitar gating on that last single that is driving me nuts, digging the riffage, though.

    Resurrecting this thread from the grave...

    Interesting to hear STS with vocals. Really loved the opening solo. Anybody know if those LEDs are actually touch sensitive or if they're like midi pre-programmed? EDIT: I guess the outro answers that question. :lol:

    As a massive fan of earlier scale the summit, these riffs are a nice change of pace back to that rather than the weirdness of his last album.

    Poor guy spent all his money on a guitar, now he can’t afford pants without holes in him. And pay his bandmates

    While the vocalist is good, I'd still prefer the music be instrumental. It just feels weird now. Also, idk what it is with the newer material, but I feel the music became significantly less interesting when Travis and the other dudes left. I know Chris writes pretty much everything, but still. Idk. Just doesn't sound too interesting to me. I don't hate it, but I don't really have any sort of strong feelings about it which I think just maybe makes it boring to me.

    Same. I respect it from a technical standpoint, but it doesn’t feel like it was written from a passionate, or emotional, place.

    I agree with the above comments. Diehard Monuments through V fan, but the last album just didn't have any life to it. This song sounds like pretty much a rehash of things that came before but with a singer this time. Some of the songs, riffs and licks on V are the best of Scale the Summit, to then drop off so suddenly with later releases.

    I'll listen to the song with Ross Jennings, but otherwise not interested in the rest of this album.

    There actually is an instrumental version of it available, on Spotify at least. I wonder if they will end up releasing all of the songs available as instrumentals too.
