However the drums here sound like popcorn lol I don't think that is a good thing.

Re: Seriously, the new Fallujah is something else

The problem I see is that the first song they posted "Sapphire" is by far the best on the whole album if you ask me.

Re: Seriously, the new Fallujah is something else

the more i listen to this, the more i like it. but the drum sound is still beyond shit (seriously, no other decent DM album comes to mind with a shittier drum sound. not even Adversarial), and i don't hear it as anything particularly innovative

Pretty rad. Used to lead the charge on Fallujah hatred, but this is a step up.

Re: Seriously, the new Fallujah is something else

Good leads, *some* decent riffing, an impressive evolution from an album that I thought was far more characterized by the same flaws that are detrimental to this one: uncreative and subpar vocals, the aforementioned lack of dynamics (especially for a band whose aesthetic really calls for it), and a somewhat ineffable continuity with the tech-deathcore scene that they come from. The terrible drum production does actually pile on quite heavily, since it clashes so much with the melodies woven into the composition, but it's not the only problem to me.

I'm actually fairly impressed by their evolution, but the hype machine does mystify me a bit on this one.

I think this band is kinda lame. The guys clearly are able to play proficiently but that doesn't mean they can write a song that appeals to me or some of the other people on this board.

but that drum tone is definitely the absolute worst part about this song. The rest can be summed up in subjective taste but there is no denying that this is what drums should NOT sound like, stupid racist tag aside.

Since when is Pitchfork associated with tech-death? I am 95% sure this is the sort of thing they would distance themselves from. It doesn't look or sound like something that Profound Lore would touch so there you go. lol


I'm not really liking the sound of this. Maybe it could grow on me but I'm not inclined to find out.

You aren't missing much. It sounds like a less interesting version of Anomalous to me.

It's always interesting to me to hear what other people associate certain songs / music with.

Like, Anomalous? How the fuck does that even come about?

I get it. The batshit djenty techdeath interlaced with spacey melodic leads and atmospherics.
It isn't that far fetched.

Re: Seriously, the new Fallujah is something else

It gives me hope for the future that you guys don't fall for these pitchfork djentcore charlatans that have 0 dynamic range. So they can play an instrument, big deal. Does that give them the right to cram themselves in between myself and the fragrance of my own farts? No!

They sound nothing alike, regardless of them using (what you think to be) similar mechanics.

It's like when people say a band sounds like DS because they use disjointed, chromatic riffs and slams.

No.

Glad you caught what I meant. Like I said, it's a watered down version of them, not a carbon copy.

i'm with marlon on this, they sound nothing alike. it's like saying any "spacey" metal band sounds like Darkspace.

they sound more like Animals as Leaders with quite a bit more Satriani/Vai influences sprinkled with some blasts and growls. this is "death metal" even less than crap like Krallice is "black metal"
