From FB:

Blowing through these songs now for the new SOTO album which I'm proud to finally tell you the title...the album is called 'Origami'. We begin mixing on Monday so I'm cruising to get these vocals wrapped while we're mixing!

hit & miss albums so far imo.

A great live band tho - they certainly picked the best songs from both albums and mixed these in the usual Talisman, malmsteen, and cover material. Made for a fantastic gig.

Just teasing you about Soto.

Not my cup of tea but I will still likely give it a spin on Spotify.

Album is killer...gets better after the first few tunes. Last half is brilliant.

 

there have been a few keepers on each album so will definitely give it a chance.

I've been unable to get into the two prior SOTO releases.  I much prefer hearing Jeff sing the more melodic stuff like Lost In Translation,  Damage Control or his albums with W.E.T..  But I do think this new track is decent and Andrew's comment above gives me some hope that the upcoming release will be better.

What a fantastic song!
I need to get back to this album.
I recall when it came out thinking that it was better than most JSS stuff on first listen.

But this song would easily be on a 2019 mix for me.

Looked up Divak, and I saved like 8 songs off that.

Probably 3 or 4 more than should have made it, but have been in a Liberal mood.

Yeah, I went looking for my copy and found that I was thinking of Inside The Vertigo which I still haven't given a fair amount of time to.

Did a search for this pone and found it wasn't out yet, which is why I tried to get the 2019 releases thread up and going again.

Damn time moves so fast before I know it I'm literally years behind...

One of three purchases I have made in June so far along with the new First Signal & The Alliance CD's. Enjoying all three albums after many plays.

    • Listened to this album and not sure I have much desire to listen to it again. Dynzaty is probably a great comparison. Definitely heavier and more modernized than Liberation and a long way from where the style they had on the debut.  I think Infected is probably the only tune on the album i really like....Everything works pretty well in that tune for me and it's probably the only song that I might come back to.  Firefly isn't too bad.  The rest is just kinda all over the place for me and not very memorable or grabbing me. I don't mind that they've gone heavier...but they seem to have lost catchiness with choruses, pre-choruses, etc.  
    • Okay but not overly exciting me initially.  It's a well done tune but just wish it had a little more bite or edge or something. Reminds me a bit of Perfect Plan style-wise. Keeping eyes on this though.  Would like to hear a few more songs. 
    • Anyone else getting their face slapped around by this one? In the past they've been pretty standard metalcore type stuff with all screams and not much else. This album, however, has some really cool and catchy metal tunes on it.  Here's a few of my faves;          
    • The last few comments are basically where it's at. It's really not a bad album. I like 'Idiots,' 'In the maze,' 'We are the legion,' 'Parasite' and 'Waiting for your love.' And none of the rest is terrible... though not great. I guess stuff like this is probably the future for the band. Just one of the crowd, rather than the genre leaders they were with the debut and 'Generation Wild.' Nice solid album, but they're not the band they used to be.  
    • Wow, you're certainly one of the younger members here. I think Karpetface turned 9 this year, but after him, you're the next youngest!  Welcome aboard and yes, pretty impressive to see someone so young into this type of music. Do your parents listen to this style of music? Interested in how you got into it in the first place. 
    • So after listening to this a bit more I can agree that there are some good songs here but as already pointed out the production is pretty poor  It pretty much ruins it , Bang bang being the most obvious example for me  Good song but the production on that one is horrendous
    • They released a new album called 'Love Letter Kill Shot' a couple of months ago. Gotta give it to them, they're consistent. If you like what they do, you'll like plenty about the new album. No bad songs and a whole lot of solid-ness.    1    .    Cuff the Criminal 2    .    Reanimate 3    .    Wake Up 4    .    Panic Room (feat. Andrew Schwab) 5    .    Play to Win 6    .    Fire Away 7    .    Misery 8    .    Chemical Wisdom 9    .    Never Too Late 10    .    Touch of Pain 11    .    Walk With Me 12    .    Best Thing Ever     My favourite tune is;    
    • I was just thinking back to a comment I made in April when I first heard a sample from the album. As per above, I was under the impression that the other three guys maintained the band name and that they had a new vocalist. Stefan quickly pointed out it was the other way around and that Archie was the only remaining member. But funny how I didn't recognise him at first listen, and after a few spins of the full album, I still struggle to believe how it's the same guy. I know it is, but man, what a change.
