Figured i'd set up the discussion thread since i've seen a lot of people get their copy early online and it leaked and it's tomorrow in a lot of countries My thoughts? It's hard to say. A lot of the songs have this homogeneous quality to them that genuinely frustrated me on first listen enough that I stopped and skimmed through the rest of the songs and noticed that like, 8 out of the 9 had essentially the same super fast tremolo riff and I almost turned it off until I realized that I was just being super close minded and was just looking for a reason to write this off since I didn't super super love the two singles I heard. Being on my third listen now, i'm enjoying it a lot. More than I thought I would. Specific bullet point thoughts about each song, Paralysed is a super solid opener, second half of Gore really does it for me since it takes a moment to slow down, I like the weird very Slayer-esque opening to Incarcerated, War of Attrition has a middle bit I really enjoy, Disorder really really reminds me of Death which is super cool? I wish more of the album took this angle, The Thing (1982) was the track on my first listen through that made me think like yeah this is some classic Evile shit, Zombie Apocalypse despite being a cover is probably my favorite song on here because damn that riff is heaaaaaaaaaavy and once again I sound like an old man but I like that it sloooooooooooooooooooooooooows down instead of being breakneck 24/7, Control from Above shreds, then the title track we've all heard is... still alright. I'm not super in love with it, second half is the better half for sure. Would have preferred it end with Control From Above And that's about it. Main points being, I wish that there was more variety overall and that there would be some good mid tempo stuff but I do not blame Ol for wanting to just put out a very very fast record like this. No idea where i'd rank this with the other Evile albums because its so new. My whole blurb there might seem a bit over critical but like I said, as I listen to this more i'm definitely enjoying it more. Very much reminds me of Infected Nations where I didn't super love it on first listen but now I absolutely love it. We'll see what happens. Any of you guys heard it yet? What are you guys thinking?
