I didn't like them since... the 90's. This one is not an exception either.

 

Really? The 90's is very general. I liked The Gathering a lot but I did not like the Demonic. I thought the Formation of Damnation and Dark Roots of Earth was great! Since when did you stop liking them? I saw them in May of last year with Exodus opening and they sounded great!

Can't say I'm any more than a passing fan and Souls of Black seems to be the only song I can even recall but this new tune is pretty nice and super heavy. The production at least through my headphones is super loud.

 

I gotta feelin' that this is gonna be better than The Dark Roots of Earth. according to Chuck Billy the singer there seem to be tension within the band during the recording. I feel that when there is tension members they tend to make the best CD's.

Yeah, hugely disappointed! I'm not a testament fan, but I had other reasons to wait for this. Still the sample is way too small...but

 

I was expecting way too much from the rhythm section that offered a masterpiece like "Individual Thought Patterns".

Still I cannot wait to listen to the other project of Steve Di Giorgio recorded with a fetish of mine, that's BTB bass from Ibanez.

well my opinion is this song is good but there's too much modern influence especially in the drumming section for my taste.

I like, and can dig the heaviness, but I prefer some classic Testament touch incorporated which I think is quite thin here.

Well the basic formula of old thrash is still there, the album is still quite promising to touch the low 80% range

I agree with you. I don't like the death metal growls either. Give me back that old Legacy sound!

Skolnik is God among mortals, but I'm missing the monster opus here+ I wanted a lot lot lot and lot more from the rhythm section that gave me Individual Thought Patterns, goddammit!

 

Still Brotherhood>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>. big 4

 

 

Btw, I'm still waiting for somebody to open a Death Angel topic for the new release. With their totalitarian metal they easily wipe the floor with all these proclaimed kings of thrash whatever.

    • You know that feeling when you're sitting around listening to your 1987 playlist and a song you've heard plenty of times comes on the speakers and as it plays you think to yourself, holy fuck, seriously, how good is this song?! I think we can safely call it under-rated as the band only have the - wait, what the fuck? As I was just double checking that they only had the one EP, I notice this actually got re-released with 6/7 more tracks last year?  https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=9095&CDName=II Did I know about this? I know my memory is terrible, but I don't think so. I must find immediately.  But yeah, how good is this song?  
    • New video for 'Into The Fire'. From Frontiers: Swedish rockers degreed have announced the upcoming release of their sixth studio album, “Are You Ready”.  ”I can’t believe we’re about to release our sixth studio album. I am so proud of this band and I am very humbled that we are still around. And what could fit more perfectly than to release this album with Frontiers? The leading company when it comes to melodic rock and hard rock! Our upcoming album will be just that...a more straightforward hard rock album with great melodies. Our ”old” fans will not be disappointed, and I’m sure that we will gain a lot of new ones as well with this one,” says vocalist Robin Eriksson. This new record indeed shows a more straightforward and focused direction for the band’s sound. Still extremely melodic and catchy, and not without some really outstanding instrumental parts, Degreed is back stronger than ever and with a great management and record label supporting them, they’ve never been more ready to take on the world. degreed have been releasing critically acclaimed music since the start of their career with their first album “Life, Love, Loss” in 2010. Over the course of their next four studio albums, the band has gone from strength to strength with every release, touring and gaining fans all over the world and they have no plans on stopping now. Degreed's sound mixes the classic melodic and hard rock sounds with more contemporary influences offering the fans a very personal, fresh and exciting mix of great rock music. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band wasn’t able to tour on the heels of the release of their latest album, "Lost Generation" (2019), they set out to begin work on their sixth studio album, "Are You Ready". The band released the song “The World We Knew," their musical summation of the year 2020 (the song became ”Track of the Week” at Classic Rock Magazine’s website a week after its release) and then in 2021, work began in earnest on what would ultimately become "Are You Ready". Tracklisting: 1.    Into The Fire 2.    Higher 3.    Feed The Lie 4.    Radio 5.    Are You Ready 6.    Burning  7.    Falling Down 8.    Lost In Paradise 9.    Turn Back 10.    We Will Win 11.    Desire    
    • Looks like I'm the only one who likes Tyler more than Coverdale. Not that I dislike Coverdale, I love the guy's voice, but if I had to choose just one to listen to, I'd go with Tyler, especially his 70's output. I kinda like the sleazy sound just a little bit more than the bluesy sounding voices.
    • It's like how I apologise to the mechanics every time my car breaks down.
    • I reckon it's worth asking the question. 
    • I come in genuine curiosity, but this hospital argument... I'd like clarification. So originally we couldn't do anything because covid was going to kill everyone on earth. Then there was a vaccine and we couldn't do anything until we all got vaccinated. Now we're all vaccinated and the sole reason left that we're still living piece of shit lives is because we don't want to overload the hospitals? Is this the correct read on it? So, if this is true, we've resigned to the truth that is this is how the rest of our lives look? Masks, QR codes, crowd capacities, covid tests if we want to travel interstate, let alone international travel - then we need 87 tests and quarantine every time a new variant pops up, which will be fortnightly, or at the latest, monthly. This is it now, is it? Because if it's not, how does the end of it look? When will it be okay to live again without fear of clogging up the hospitals?  I can only speak for Australia on this part of it, but all we've ever heard about is stopping the strain on the hospitals, but has anyone ever seen it? Would anyone even consider overloaded hospitals as an issue if the media hadn't told us it was an issue? I ask as anyone I know who works in healthcare, and to an extent, even myself, as a medical courier who has worked every single day of the last two years... no one I know, or I, have ever seen any single even remote sign of all this strain on our health system. So, like the rest of this pandemic, is it just another media beat up? All they've done for two years straight is belt fear into us, so is it unreasonable to think this is just another branch from that tree? I'm just sick of daily excuses why our lives are still fucking horrible. Anytime the mere suggestion of return to a "normal" life gets brought up, there's a whole list of media-inspired reasons why we have to continue living in misery.  Anyway, I think that was about it. I'm just in eternal wonder about why we all had to get vaccinated when it hasn't actually changed anything about how covid is viewed and feared. Covid is viewed exactly as it was two years ago. It still governs every aspect of how we live, so all these promises about getting vaccinated so we could go back to a normal life were obviously all bullshit.  I was thinking about Australia's trajectory this morning. So if we keep up this pathetic excuse for an existence - the daily covid rate is around 1300 daily cases - let's call it 1500 daily cases if and when the other states open up. So if we continue on this trajectory, living in paralysed fear of the virus, acting like every case of covid is terminal cancer, we should get past this covid thing in about 15,333 days. So around 42 years. That, of course doesn't allow for population growth, but let's assume the cases go up with population growth proportionately.  So that's the outlook in Australia. In 42 years, we might finally move on from covid, based on our current trajectory? What a future to look forward to! Oh, actually, that doesn't include cases prior to today, so maybe we can get out of this thing in closer to 41 years? Life just got a whole lot brighter right then.    
    • Really nice album cover indeed...but ten for me this last while...yawn...as Jez pointed out they all sound the same,i'd have difficulty picking which track came from which album tbh
    • Yeah it starts off very good then tails off round midway...but the defs have potential and judging by the new tunes could fulfil it...fingers crossed
    • And mine still hasn't been sent...quality service right there  too late to get a refund? lol
