    Tried doing it on my phone in class didn't work. But it does on my computer :p. My Bodom honestly sounded dank as fuck. But I only heard like 8 seconds of keyboard, so I'll need to hear the entire song. Horns was alright. Prayer sounds like Angels Don't Kill Part 2. And just like Red Light In My Eyes pt 2 it isn't as good as part 1. Hold Your Tongue has a pretty catchy beat and angry like I Hurt, am I the only one who likes where his vocals are going? Suicide Bomber sounds pretty dank too. All for Nothing is really good. And Widdershins, damn, just like I was hoping, it sounds like Bodom devoured some old school Ensiferium. I stopped at the keyboard solo just because I'm gonna save that for this Friday :kickass::kickass::kickass::kickass::kickass:

    widdershins sounds like pure classic bodom. Pure classic bodom. It's going to be the best song on the album, you finally get to see laiho go nuts on the guitar and janne on the keyboards.


    prayer for the afflicted sounds amazing too <3. really solid album.

    After listening to all those samples, I have to say that Widdershins is the best from what I've heard yet but the album itself is too repetitive imo. Everything sound in most parts the same. And the title track and iHurt are definitely the worst songs. Good album but HOB and RRF were better.

    If you really can't wait, there are ways to buy it from the Japanese itunes store. No idea if that (still) works because itunes is (or was?) a piece of shit I wouldn't want near my pc ever.

    Or you could wait just a little bit longer, save you from all the trouble and enjoy the album when it's leaked. Worst case scenario, when it drops on your doormat in a few days (or when you can buy it on amazon or whatever).

    FUCK ITUNES! It keeps hanging while I try to play Widdershins!

    From the rest, I still think Horns and Hold Your Tongue should be pretty sweet, but I'm starting to get the "monotonous" feeling too tbh, like if Alexi just decided to crank the technicality of the riffs but purposefully cut on the melodies and so on. Probably just how it came out, but that's the feeling it gives.

    I had to restart iTunes after every sample as it refused to play more than one on each opening :D

    I love the soundworld of this album and the rhythm is really cool. But it's missing memorable lead sections. Sadly I get the feeling that these songs won't be interesting enough to listen to in a few weeks.

    It's their longest album, but the songs feel shorter than ever, because they have less musical material. Some sections feel so repetitive I almost fall asleep, but that also makes them fly by fast. I already lost any and all interest to I Hurt and IWC. Even Morrigan has only a couple sections I still like, and Suicide Bomber the same. They said it's gonna be dark and atmospheric, but only songs 3, 5, 8 are somewhat so. Well, it's not gonna be an album to worship, but we may still like it and get some kicks off it, maybe there's a good song or two still unheard. But it gets boring pretty quick when the songs are more about hammering noise than emotional leads and creative formulas. I come from a place where I have more interesting things to do than listen to barking vocals over average thrash. Just my personal taste maybe, but I said it a million times, they need more memorable leads, more darkness and more atmosphere, but they went the wrong way taking influences from Lamb of God or whatever. I've been trying to explain this a million times, but it seems Alexi is made of two completely different composers, and I just happen to like the other. It's like old Wild Child came as guest musician to drop a melody for Prayer for the Afflicted, like an apology for years of abscence, then disappeared again.

    For me it's the opposite. I have IWC, I Hurt and Suicide Bomber still mininum 3-4 a day on. Morrigan feels sometimes kinda "meh" in comparison, but still like it. For once (and grammar errors aside) I Hurt's and IWC's lyrics kinda give them some strength too (don't know the rest, but had never cared much for Alexi's lyrics nor found them very interesting).

    Arcane, should you put up another Song Survivor? There's more people here now than during the release of Halo I think, so it might get through this time, especially if you do it now that people haven't yet faded away. The IWC vote won't be up for weeks anyway.

    I like My Bodom. Nothing amazing, but still a good song. Somewhat similar to Suicide Bomber. Has a real long solo.

    Horns is similar except it lacks a memorable chorus. Not a single melody in the entire song IIRC.

    Prayer for the Afflicted is very good. Best one on the album so far. The chorus is epic and the verses are great too.

    Hold Your Tongue reminds me of IYF quite a bit. I like IYF a bit better.
