So... new Disavowed!

Has anyone else been waiting for every one of those 13 years since Stagnated Existence?









Should have stayed dead.

Re: So... new Disavowed!

Should arrive in my mailbox any day now. From what I've heard, I like it, but it is pretty different from their previous material and obviously not up to the standard they set

From what I heard, the songwrting is lacking with Robb repeating the same sentence all along the songs lol. Not Ordered yet, still waiting an euro distro imported it.

Re: So... new Disavowed!

Yeah, neither the riffs or the songs are anywhere near as strong as the old records, but they're.. passable, on their own.
My issue is the drumming. I don't know who the new drummer is, but they're boring as hell. Blasting, basic shit, not a single ounce of groove or lock with the riffing. Sounds like a session musician who doesn't care beyond the pay and who's never listened to the old Disavowed records, which, in all honesty, are groovy as fuck, especially for BDM.

I wonder if the boring riffs were written to not overwhelm the boring drummer. Sounds like almost an entirely different band.

Re: So... new Disavowed!

This album is everything I wanted and more. New drummer kills it; follows in Goulon’s footsteps magnificently. Hard to believe this was the first bdm band I ever got into purely by copiously buying Neurotic CDs.

Tracks 4-10 are one giant groove sandwich.

Yeah, this is a shame. Oh well, I'll always have Stagnated Existence.

Re: So... new Disavowed!

I agree, it was quite a let down after all of these years. It just sounds bland and uninspired.
