I really like the album and it contains alot of the bands best yet BUT whats the deal with Oli being so hateful (lyrically speaking) of faith/religion? I am personally agnostic so I dont mind lyrics challenging religion but lines like;

"Fuck your faith, no ones gonna save you
Fuck your faith"

"Show me a sign, show me a reason to give
A solitary fuck about your god damn beliefs
I'm going blind, but one thing's clear
Death is the only salvation you'll feel"

"What you call faith, I call a sorry excuse"

"So when you die, the only kingdom you'll see—
Is two-foot wide and six feet deep!"

are just too much at times IMO. Its like the main theme lyrically on at least half of the record unfortunately. Just wish it was more varied more than anything.

He's expressing his beliefs, which he's perfectly entitled to do, seeing as it's his record and all.

Yeah I get that but it's a bit harsh no? I'm all for free speech and I don't even find this at all offensive for myself personally but I find it a bit much. It's like the difference between me saying boys like girls suck and boys like girls is fucking shit and fuck you if you like them you fucking moron.

Again, Oli is entitled to say whatever and he's vocally at his best. I just was saying one of my main criticisms with the record.

Well, seeing as this is at heart a metalcore record, surely you'd kind of expect it to be aggressive both lyrically and musically?
