    i saw Unearth about a year or so ago, and i couldn't believe they were the same band i saw ten years prior. unrecognizable.

    that song gives me Disembodied/Martyr AD vibes... at least the first minute or so does

    Don't worry, there are songs on the album that are pretty damn heavy.

    Collaborating with DL from The Acacia Strain was a really good idea. I've been listening to it at least once a day since it came out, and this is my favorite album since The March. Still sounds like Unearth, but they're going into new territory. Really liking how Phipps has expanded his vocal range on the lower side.

    The new album is really good, I've only given it a few spins but I like it a lot more than the last album. The vocals are so different on this album, you'd almost think it's a new singer. I didn't like them at first but after hearing the album the better pronunciation, range and dynamics suits their newer style more. They've also tuned to drop A which adds another new element to their music.

    I was not happy with the march :lol: I felt that WOR was their last good album since III.

    From the single I heard he's still using the same style from WOR - did he switch it up again? I too enjoy the new depth.

    Got it on release day, love it, the vocals was unrecognizable at first, but it's definitely Trevor,
    my favorite thus far is Cultivation of Infection, King of the Arctic mainly because of the clean intros. I definitely like this one than the last two albums.

    Sidewinder would be an awesome love track, so heavy and bouncy.

    From DITL to WOR he moved to a higher harsher sounding style with poor pronunciation, on the new album he sounds near identical to current Matt Heafy in places. He's using a more guttural lower style, less aggressive and more dynamic so the prononciation is better. From what I read on his AMA that's exactly what he wanted since he wasn't happy with his WOR vocals. It was one of the biggest put offs people had for that album so he really took the criticism to heart and worked on it.

    I honestly didn't know the album dropped yet.
    Definitely gunna pick it up- Unearth is one of those bands that cannot make a bad album imo.

    Albums don't really drop anymore - they get uploaded.

    Man, I can not get into the vocals on this album. Listening to the pre-release singles, I thought that they either got a different vocalist or Trevor fucked his voice up. It's like they weren't processed enough / are too dynamic for this style of music and sound really out of place.

    As for the rest of the album.... I'm not loving it as much as I was hoping to. I find myself skipping every third-ish song. Specifically, Survivalist, Hard Lined Downfall and Sidewinder are basically unlistenable to me, which is a huge bummer because Unearth is one of my favorite bands. Sorry, but Hard Lined Downfall sounds like a terrible Slipknot song. Unearth should be better than that.

    The Oncoming Storm is, imo, their best album, with Watchers of Rule a close contender for second. That album is amazing. Maybe this will grow on my but It's not the go-to new album I was hoping for.

    I've listened through the album now. It felt a bit underwhelming. I'd liked the singles but I think the other songs on the album aren't as good. And now I put on some songs from WOR for comparison and yeah, wow. I think that's a much better album.

    I'm pretty much hooked on this album. It's quite short so I feel like I've listened to it a million times already. Never really been a fan of the vocalist though, I don't like the "clean" screaming style he does. I like the guttural stuff on this album though.
