This album fucking rules.
Finished it now. The ending solo in Emancipate has to be my favorite so far. That whole trio is rockin'. I consider the rest of the album supremely lackluster in terms of those 3, but the rest is not bad by any means.
This is awesome lol.
First go through of the album for me made me want more songs like "Hymn of Sanity" or a longer version of that song.. But after listening to it more and more I dig how keene envisioned it.
crappy, but whatever
Still haven't listened to it! D: Checking HMV as soon as I get home.
EDIT: Nevermind, I hate HMV. Checking Sunrise
Just heard Eidolon for the first time since the Pre-pro was released. I am so bummed that Mike put a shitty fucking harmony over his singing part. That used to be one of my favorite parts and now it's one of my least favorite parts on the whole album.
How in the hell did they top PD? absolutely incredible album. After just one listen I can already tell its going to be one of my favorites
the drumkit pisses me off. its sounds just like SD2.0 without any production ;0
harmonies in clean part of eidolon reality are shitty. i dont like them anymore.
but thats it, the album is brilliant anyways. i still like PD more, but its great.
I don't see why people get so worked up over mixes and drum sounds nowadays, they tend to sound pretty good. Even if it comes from a preset in a program, SD2.0 sounds awesome. Why else would people spend the money on it? The drum sounds on this record don't stick out like a sore thumb, they fit fine. So I don't see what you're saying.
loving the album but also still digesting the whole thing, may have to contemplate this over repeated listens with my pipe, giggidy
Same here, but I'm having difficulties remembering what song it's from. Help anyone?
it took a couple of years for them to create the album and they didnt even recorded real drums :0 maybe sd sounds good, but when i hear it in a band from which i expected much much more... you know what i mean. it just sounds amateur-ish. no offence, i like that album anways, its just my opinion.
I'm really trying hard to get more into this album, but it isn't working well for me
Yeah in that context it makes more sense when the album took this long to be released haha.
Production never really makes or breaks an album unless it's incredibly shitty. Production is ok on this.
I was wrong a few pages back, apparently Lyle played most of the parts into SD2 with an e-kit, but one or two of songs were programmed, don't quote me on this, was said by Marlon (in Abhorrent/Absvrdist with Lyle)
Hail Science is definitely my favourite track. I like my metal like I like my Brief History of Time... read by Stephen Hawking.
i feel like a bad person for thinking the layered version of Godsmack and The Faceless sounds awesome.
not sure if I like it. I thought they would just evolve their sound into something more original, but it sounds like they are taking other people's styles and incorporating them into the regular the faceless tech death style in order to gain more variety.
but at the end of the day, if I want to listen to opeth style metal, I'll listen to opeth, not the faceless trying to sound like them.
At least they tried different things. I would be very disappointed if they just put out Planetary Duality V2 after four years.
