album is quite good when they don't abuse screaming and gang vocals. unfortunately, they do that way too often, and i probably won't listen to this again because of it... it really turns me off for some reason. screaming doesn't fit in, and gang vocals are just too prominent.

if i want this sound i'll stick to Daggermouth, Set Your Goals, and Living With Lions (who I only recently discovered, and we'll see how long that lasts).

also, blake, the image you hotlinked is missing the 'g' in 'jpg.' great review, though.



thanks for the heads-up! Appreciate the kind words, and while I love the gang vocals (obv.), I see your points. This one is probably going to be (much like FYS) a love it or hate it type of thing. I enjoy the sound for what it is, but even more, i enjoy the aura that surrounds this release with its jokes and playful feel (or whatever, themes, if you will). It took me a bit to catch on, but once it clicked, i couldn't stop listening. And I haven't stopped for nearly a month now.

Who is the girl doing guest vocals on Zombies Are the New Black?

Sounds like the chick from Holy Roman Empire.

Thanks for finding out, it was bugging me.

And upon further review, this is one of the most fun albums I've listened to in awhile.



yeah, its been in pretty heavy rotation for me for about a month now.
