21:46 - Hex_Omega It's not an easy-listening album thats for sure. From the 2h+ albums this is the most accessible for me [link]
21:44 - Zaphod Yeah, I knew you've had it for a while. Definitely a long album, but also one of my favorites from 2012.
21:43 - Erik M. Zaphod, haha yeah it did. For the record, I own the album for 6-7 months already but only checked it out once back then and then ignored it for months. Now I finally love it though. Still a too long album if you ask me.
21:41 - Zaphod I prefer re-record of "Kingdom" and the original of "Hyperdrive". Erik, wow, took you a while didn't it? :D
21:38 - Hex_Omega I also like both versions of Hyperdrive.
21:34 - Erik M. Love it when the black metal kicks in. Those moments are great. Never heard a band that has such good transitions between (funeral) doom and BM.
21:33 - Hex_Omega @Lit. Yes it is nice but I still like earlier version and Physicist album.
Sound/Production wise it's instantly better than the God-awful Process of a New Decline but musically it still kinda hovers around sterile tech-death if you ask me (though still has a lot more soul than most similar bands). Will certainly be giving the full length a chance though.
For me Process of a Decline is by far the most distant tech death album from all others in the genre. This new song sounds like the others... which is not a bad thing but I fear they will lost their uniqueness. the Gorod-style. Replacing Arnaud wasn't a really good idea...
