Kind of thought this was coming. The energy level from album to album just went downhill, it honestly sounds like they got progressively more bored with every release.

Still bummed. Foreword is my favorite EP.

you honestly think this new record is a result of them being bored? c'mon son.
ok, maybe not bored, but just..uninspired? tired? I don't think it's a coincidence that the last album they released is the least enthusiastic. It's like listening to a dying breath.

Heavy bands are the only bands that are inspired and happy. You heard it here first, folks!

This news is a total bummer.
While I appreciate your snark, I'm fairly certain that you can grasp what I am attempting to say without making me look like an uneducated asshole, rather, just another person is thinks that, for a band that used to be at least somewhat "heavy" (at times) to make an album that recalls almost none of the very essence of what garnered most of their fans (see: the actual music being dynamic, a bit more energetic, and yes, loud) might imply that, their time as a band is coming to a close.

Never said it was bad, just think it's not as inspired as Pnuema, Waves, or the Foreword EP.

I back both of these sentences.
Meh. I never said they did, either. I'm saying that I believe the band itself has lost their enthusiasm, as mirrored in the way their music has taken a rather noticeable turn for the softer. I don't see how it's really even up for arguing, considering they've stated they're going on hiatus after 3 shows. Doesn't seem like they're too enthusiastic about their new record.

sucks..
the production and takes on their new album are piss poor at best.. songs are great though. you can tell no one wanted to make that album or be in the same room together. ive produced a lot of records in my day, sucks when a band falls apart in the studio..... and now the ap.net insults are gonna be through my way like no tomorrow ha
Don't worry, I completely agree. You can tell they wanted to just release it and have it be over with, the whole thing sounds like everyone did their own shit alone in a room, brought it to the studio, and then recorded it without wondering if the pieces would really come out anything more than passable. For a band that used to write 9 minute songs that varied and peaked and had wonderful interludes, all of this just bums me out. It's not a personal attack on the band or it's members.
