Because you said they ditched the "scene kid vibe" for a more "artistically focused" direction and I think that statement is laughably inaccurate. This music isn't anymore creative than before, it's still BMTH given it is better than prior releases . This stuff still caters to the same crowd that's liked this band since their second album but with more synth now, and that my friend gives me even more of a scene vibe than ever.
I respect your view here, but I have to disagree, respectively. This album has elements they have never touched on before, and aside from "Antivist" this album is a huge step in a different direction. It has similarities to "There Is A Hell..." but it's a very Underoath esque departure with heavy soundscapes. Agree to disagree I suppose! And I say this, not being a huge BMTH fanboy. But look at Suicide Season compared to Sempiternal.
