  -  Tilian To Record New DGD Album (http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=2956622)

Saosin hasn't been relevant since 2006. Not to mention Justin was a complete douchebag to Tilian on the Sao Forums when they were still up to the point that the rest of the band had to apologize for him being a jerk.

And really, they have a sound that was unique back when they first rolled out in '03, but the rest of the post-hardcore scene caught up with them fast, but they didn't evolve as a band or as musicians. Translating the Name was awesome, and the Self-Titled was good, but after that, it became evident that they were sapped of creativity and had just become generic. Even the demos Tilian did with the band weren't all that fantastic, and it was obvious they didn't know how to accommodate Tilian's talent.

Tilian's voice is really unique, and I was very sad that he left Tides of Man in the first place to pursue Saosin, but I'm glad he's not going to be a part of it. I think DGD will be more willing to alter what they are as a band to accommodate Tilian as opposed to Saosin, and as such, are more willing to embrace change in order to become relevant again. Not to mention the solo stuff he's put out is really awesome. I'm very excited to hear their new stuff.

Interested in what Tillian could bring to the DGD sound.

only good things can come out of this.

Am I the only one who doesn't like Tilian's voice? It seems like bands that I like are making an effort to replace amazing singers with sub-par ones. He seems like a cool dude but Cove, Anthony and Jonny are all miles above this guy.

Lol people wanting new Saosin.


No idea what this joker sounds like and the last DGD album was complete balls so I have super low expectations for this.

It's like having Jag from a skylit drive sing for DGD...

Not interested. Prob won't even sound that good. So what's going on w Saosin.

dmcaloon 11/19/12 07:24 AM

Good, they could use some stability. As for my expectations, I'm not asking for much. I expect the instrumental to be no better than DBMII, which was okay at best. And hearing Tilian for the first time, he sounds pretty good and like he'd be a good fit, so at least that will be a cool change of pace. And Saosin is just irrelevant to this entirely.

Pretty much all this except I like Tilian's voice so I have mid expectations, not sure if it will fit tho. Saosin always sounds like a puchline to me tho.

Best comment. I can't believe people ignored this gold.

Don't like his voice at all so no care.

Peerless 11/19/12 08:02 AM
