17:50 - BlackEssence Wherever I visit metal site, I see a bunch of people fapping about new sludge release. 3-4 years ago it was calm, now? "We are new sludge metal band" "OH YESS YOU MUST BE COOL"
17:25 - Apothecary I definitely would not say that sludge is the "hot new trend" within metal. If anything, that's deathcore and the recent ramp up of all the pseudo-intellectual "progressive" death metal
17:23 - BlackEssence But it's true. 5 years ago I just know couple of band playing that kind of music. Now - everyone is playing it. Because why? They have no money for good guitars and amps?
17:21 - Apothecary I don't often respond to comments with memes, but that last one calls for it [link]
17:16 - BlackEssence Sludge is some kind of nu metal now. Everyone want to play it and be "so sludge". It's stupid trend.
17:09 - Apothecary I think it works both ways, really
16:31 - Kuroboshi Well, isn't it so that the fans usually vote first, and then other people also start looking into the album and don't give it as high votes, thus bringing it down.

Ever since I heard "The Weapon they fear" all the way back in 2004...ish I always thought this band had a pretty interesting sound for a metalcore band although I never picked up an album (well I "accidentally" picked up "Whatever it may Take", but this was both a disappointment and a bit before I could really sample an album online before purchasing it). This album though invokes that same sense from the above mentioned song but just far more energetic and far more suffocatingly heavy.
