Mentioned elsewhere i know but i think this album deserves a thread all of it's own as these songs are, well,fuckin'... AWESOME!!!. Available to pledgers on 12-01-17 and to everyone else on the 12-08-17 i think this is going to be a killer album. I know i've already stated for me Midnite City is album of the year, but fuck me pink if these 3 songs are anything to go by i can't wait to hear the rest,album of the year...maybe,just maybe...

Wow. It's usually a nice compliment to say about a good band that they are continuing on from where they left off. If these three songs are anything to go by, this absolutely crucifies where they left off. They have always been a good to great band, but for me they had gone slightly stale. I think I compared them to the PC69 of the modern rock world. Always good and solid, but a bit workmanlike and predictable. 

'Miracle' sounds every bit like the SOTY we know and love, but that 'Bang Bang' tune is a great throwback to their 'Wake of Determination' sound/stye. As for 'I Swear, I'm Okay' - that one's going to put up a good fight for second best song of the year. I absolutely instantly love that. 

I can't believe this is already out in a couple of days. It seems like last week it was a possibility that the band might reunite... now there's already an album. Great stuff.

Its actually been over a year I think and pledgers have been moaning their arses off ;)

There's loads more snippets on YT.

Sounds really great.

 

But Geoff.....gone stale?? Really. The Constant was an amazing album imo. Full of massive tunes and solos.

The black swan is their masterpiece in my opinion with Save one being one of my favourite modern rock songs ever , how that was only a bonus track i'll never know

But I have liked every album they have put out to some degree and the new songs all sound great

 

all the bonus tracks from Black Swan were awesome

Yeah mate... a little stale/predictable. Like I said, it was always good, but they had got into a groove where you kind of knew exactly what to expect. I love reliable bands, but I still like to be excited and surprised, in a good way. Which is what the new songs are doing for me.

agreed.

The first 5 songs are great.

it then gets pretty mellow for the last 7 songs! not bad songs but that' way too many light songs for my liking and not what I was expecting from SOTY.

I think this album is great. It is a bit lighter than expected from SOTY, but I don't care as long as they're all good songs, and they really are. No real duds here at all. 'I'm sorry, I'm okay' will be in my top 5 this year for sure. Stunning tune. Those keys help make it majorly...

    • 100% spot on. There is no heaven and hell, and nobody comes back to haunt you. That's plain rubbish. And why December 25th? The supposed deity was born in spring?
    • God they must be desperate. Notice they didn't say write a new song, prob cos all their latest songs have been rubbish. I'd be interested to hear one though to see if they can still write something mildly amusing 🤔  
    • Hold on soldier, I'm hoping that wasn't aimed at me. I don't think I was putting anyone down, and as far as I know, I'm not an atheist either. I don't actually know. I can't stand all this label rubbish and don't have a label for my thoughts on this stuff. Yes, I believe you are born, you live and you die and that's the end of it. But they're just my thoughts.  Anyway, why are we talking about Christmas now anyway? Still almost 30 days to go... 
    • Agree, love that Irish girl type look. Tans are overrated!
    • Only humans were created in the image of God, and most consider that to mean possession of an eternal soul. However, the animals were put on the earth for humans to have dominion and use plus care for them. As for Heaven, we can't know what it will be like, but in my mind it would not be heaven if there were not dogs for me to hang out with, so I expect that yes there will be animals, otherwise how is it heaven for an animal lover? This view of heaven being in the clouds, wearing robes and playing harps is mostly an atheist's invention to mock what they can't comprehend. To try and explain heaven to an atheist is like trying to describe the sky to someone who has had their face buried in mud their entire lives. It's a rather fruitless and usually thankless task. I know atheists have their pile of dirt and nothingness to look forward to (lol). Yes, I am aware that atheists have invented this concept of "ascention" through genetic evolution or artificial immortality as a replacement of heaven in your religion, but I'm not sure how atheists rationalise an incorporeal existence in their concept of pointless nothingness. It doesn't bother me either what you atheists believe, I just wish you weren't so arrogant about your nihilistic mindset and cease with the put downs of those who don't share your belief set. And merry Christmas my pagan friends! I genuinely mean that.
    • Haha. Been decades since I had any discussions like this on the forum and I definitely do not want to revisit, but as my mind is always ticking over I was actually thinking about stuff the other day. So if we (humans) get a fancy afterlife kickin' it with Jesus and God n' stuff, do animals? When an ant dies, does the ant experience Heaven? Does a dog, or a cat? An elephant? Do all beings experience Heaven (or hell too, I guess, if they didn't follow the gospel?). Or do only humans experience Heaven, and if so, why do animals have a pointless existence but there simply must be something more to a human's life other than being born, living and dying?  Genuinely curious, compadre. I used to have many discussions with Mark (metalmaniac777) back in the day and we're still best buds and we even made love a few times. I'm sure he doesn't mind me disclosing that. So seriously not having a dig, but I live to learn. 
    • lol. Really interested to know if they get any takers. Solid wad of cash, $7500. Mildly interesting they still use a photo of the band with Lexxi in it, assuming they haven't replaced him yet? 
    • Yeah, I got a bit of a Degreed vibe from it too. Quality stuff. 
    • My wife had the news on this afternoon and I saw this mind numbing horseshit panic-splashed across the headlines. I thought wow, this sounds alarming. But I heard B.1.1.530 is going to hit even harder. To be honest, though, they called it something else on Aussie news, though - Cock Makers variant, or something like that. I seriously can't remember, but they actually had a name for it rather than this morse code version of it.  Anyway, 95% vaccinated in NSW and we still have to walk around like moron beatshit brains with our face masks on - mandatory - in all indoor settings. Mask rules weren't even this harsh for the majority of the pre-vaccine pandemic. Fuck me I love this cuntry. 
    • Yes, very nice, but unfortunately a distinct lack of "Titties" on show! FFS! This isn't the "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread!
