05:20 - Fearmeister lol, Midnight Odyssey is on the label's bandcamp now. I don't think that counts as a 'leak' :P
05:19 - Timmeh I love the shit out of Tool, I connect with their drug influence. Also they are masters of rhythm, love their polyrhythms.
05:19 - Joe Zombie When I think of experimental I think of avant-garde.
05:16 - Joe Zombie I used to be a big Tool fan. Listened to them a lot back in the day. And "weird" not to be confused with experimental. Weird as in these overdrawn compositions with so much fluff and filler that its wankery.
05:14 - Timmeh Yeah on a related note, I've always disliked how the genre term 'Experimental' gets thrown around. It suggests the band members have no idea what the fuck they're doing.
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...
