You know what's great? Melodic death metal that still happens to be death metal...Rather than some ambiguous melodic riffing put through thickened production with death growls laid over top. None of that crap here, Formshifter is what you could call a quintessential melodic death metal album in the truest sense of the term.

No comments here yet? Tomorrow is release date. Can't wait to here it. I hope the rest of the album is brilliant like this first song posted on youtube, that would be awesome!

Reminds me a lot of this:

Technically-driven melodic death metal with some thrash-like aggression and higher-pitched growls. Not really anything to wet my panties over...

Might check this out, interested in the idea that this retains some death within its melodic metal.

A staff guy...
So I'm not a musician but I know the last album was written with 7 strings, was this album written with 8s or did they maybe just downtune a little to get more bass on the bottom end?

Another solid album just like the first one. Able to listen repeatedly without getting bored. Not really a bad song either.

Rating reflects poorly, considering this is a nice step up from their previous release. Their songwriting has become quite a bit more memorable, and in general everything feels more cohesive here. A solid album, for sure.

Those mediocre vocals. Brings the album down a lot for me. Solid music overall, but his vocals are really unremarkable, as with the last release.

Very good album... Great riffs, melodies and solos. Twelve-Vals For The Legions is the first track, that I heard from this record and I was completely impressed what I was listening. The end of this song is brilliant. After many weeks, that I heard whole album, this is another great band, that I want to see alive.
