Their last record didn't really do it for me, perhaps it was the production, idk.


I always have had a soft spot Greeley. Will check this out.

Sweet. I've enjoyed the past three albums a lot.

Last two albums have been garbage, but go west and far from the lies are fantastic. they just need to stop with the generic breakdowns.

It's funny because they used to not be heavy at all (Far from the Lies era)

been listening since around the time Far From The Lies was released, and I believe every album since has been better than the last. This is one of my most anticipated of the year. Plus, it's nice they work so fast. This will be their 3rd consecutive year releasing a new album.

Yeah - that was the first I heard of them. But that's the thing - they still brought a little heavy to the table (one of the reasons I love that album so much; it's a good mix of slightly different styles - modern rock, some emo, a dash of screamo), and that really shaped how I looked at it, and (thank goodness) probably steered me away from the way many have gone in believing that, in order to be heavy, one needs chug-a-lug muted power chords and lots o' breakdowns.

The production on the death of... Was atrocious.

This band totally bandwagoned the heavy sound, far from the lies was great and so was go west new stuff is incredibly mediocre

love how this band releases new quality music so quickly. loved let the evil go east, and death of, wasn't a big fan of no rain, but had it tracks. such an underrated band.

so gnarly theyre still around!

I hope they go a different direction on production. Their last album sounded like fake instruments.

Yea, the production on the last albums sounds really weird. Hope they go more with the sound on No Rain, No Rainbow

InstruMETAL 04/13/12 08:48 AM

Cool didn't listen much to the last album though

glad they're putting out another album. however i feel like tragic hero is not really helping them out too much. second album in a row where they didnt have a music video for it. im interested in seeing their direction. everyone loves go west, they went heavier with no rain (which i love) and then combined the two for "the death of...". i wonder if they are going to attempt a more refined version of no rain. they mentioned before they felt it was rushed and could have done a lot better at a more "strictly heavy" album. i'll end with... i've always appreciated that no matter what they go for, they always bring the "greeley" vibe to it. they may be classified in a genre that is known for not really being innovative or original but whenever i listen to greeley i know that its them and im proud of everything they've done.

Very excited for this, hoping it sounds similar to this last album and not so much no rain. Ryan's clean vocalist are so incredibly unique, I hope the album doesn't focus on screaming alone. I agree the production on the last two albums has been only ok and wonder if they're putting out a record to finish their current label contract. I wish this band had the backing of say rise records. Didn't know they were particularly popular overseas.
