23:01 - tibosax Sounds good 3rd, but I don't know if I can stand 10 10 minutes songs of tha monotonous style
22:52 - Doge of Venice Exactly. :P As an old fan of theirs, it's definitely more energised and interesting than anything they've done for a decade.
22:51 - 3rdWorld v Clickbait Avenged Sevenfold shite.
22:48 - Doge of Venice Don't mean to be that dude, but the new best kvlt album of the year leaked - [link] Just joking. Few songs in, so far quite interesting. Vocals will still be love/hate
22:42 - Maratha When're there's talk of Korn during Halloween, I remember Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery from South Park.
22:36 - 3rdWorld Best atmospheric black I've heard all year. No bullshit samples or nature recordings, just a desolate and bleak guitar playing to get the ambience going. Swiss perfection. [link]
21:48 - 3rdWorld Was just playing the devil's advocate. I love them myself but just the first 3 albums for that matter. Haven't heard the new one in full yet but that one single really sounded well like the old primitive bassy Korn.

Shares drummer Michael Pitman: "We branched out more and enlisted the help of various live performers, such as a live string quartet, classically trained altos and sopranos, to give this album the level of production it required. As we always have, we recorded at multiple studios to capture the sound we were looking for. The biggest addition to the sound this time around is Conor. He had some huge shoes to fill and the first thing we looked for in a guitarist was that he was able to keep that real, soulful element. Conor got this straight away and in him I think people will hear a guitarist who can give you those special moments but then floor you in an instant with savage speed and outright technique. There is a real danger to his playing."
