I fucking love this skeleton of snake (or whatever it is) but the album name is a bit cringy imo. Also - song is very medium. I know I shouldn't judge album only by one song, but if it's the direction they're going, I am afraid.

Also - I am surprised that here's no vegan 'propaganda' in this video, since Alissa is in it.

I don't keep up with these things but does Arch Enemy spread vegan propaganda or is it just Alissa's personal thing? I only know Cattle Decapitation as the band that spreads veganism. But I couldn't care less about their views on that, I still like their music because I'm not one of those anti-vegan carnivore nut jobs. I actually believe eating a plant-based diet is healthier for most humans. Hell, I'd try out being vegetarian if it weren't so damn expensive where I live. But I don't subscribe to their moral standards about animal cruelty and shit, I just don't think about all those horrible things and I'm fine.
