Sleepwalking was miles above anything else they've ever released. The Ep before that was just as good. I'll even give credit to the EP after sleepwalking. The hollow was good, Challenger was very "meh". And now this newest one sounds like regurgitated riffs from both of those albums. They might claim that they don't think the structures on Sleepwalking were very good, but thats because they don't want to discredit any of their newer albums that have made them all their money. They will never triumph Sleepwalking. Tis a shame, but thats just how it is
Oh, and, Changing their sound to strictly generic Risecore riffs isn't exactly "expanding" their sound. It's more like reducing their sound
"expanding their sound" LOL what a funny term to use for turning into a generic band that makes money in the scene. I agree completely with what you said about them discrediting sleep walking so people will listen to their new shit. Matty has amazing talent as a singer and a screamer but is one hell of a douche when it comes to a lead man for a band. Him and Jonny Craig should start an all ginger douche band.
Any other ideas on who else could be in it?
