Holy fuckin shit I almost cried that song is a fuckin banger
The verses rule so hard
ok i gotta listen a few more times but so far i love the intro, verse and chorus. the outro thing is kinda cool but not totally sold on it yet but i gotta say i dont really like the keys solo, theres no melody to it and it has really poor un-inspired phrasing. but ill let it role a few times.
I agree. The keyboard solo and the guitar after that could be better.
Can I have a link please?
Really epic song. Better than anything on IWC, that's for sure, perhaps even HOB.
The solo is a bit meh, and the chorus is only good, but the rest of the song is amazing. Though my expectations have been on the rise lately, I did not expect the song to be this good.
So far I would rank the singles from best to worst:
3. This Road (The chorus is still annoying to me ^^)
Well guys, it's a good song, but not Bodom or at least not the one we used to know, interestingly neither the "modern" Bodom AYDY-IWC age, it's another new era, imo. My main problem: it's generic, I heard this song before from other artists. I could imagine it on a Naildown album, probably Daniel Freyberg was an influence
I've listened to this one's trailer and I was right on my side, the first melody is the one that shines the other parts are just ok.
I recently relistened This Road and the chorus...
Definitely the best single so far. The chorus is different and the verse is cool, nothing too crazy. Keyboard solo.... yikes Janne.... honestly the first time I’ve disliked his work. That melody after the solo though, awesome, that’s the stuff I’m looking forward to on this album.
All in all, pretty good, doesn’t really flow from riff to riff very well though, and again is missing that “something” that gets you hooked.
Would love to read the lyrics for Platitudes
"Suck, suck my Platitude, suck suck, when I feel so good"...
I believe Alexi has some more lines than just that one
Is that the song everybody likes? Welp, not in my case... feels too generic. This Road was 10x times better
An overall solid song with some fun riffs, probably the best of all of the released singles but where's the guitar solo? Maybe I missed it.
I thought the song was pretty good, I'm not sure if I like it more than This Road surprisingly but it's better than Under Grass and Clover. The main melody is fantastic, the verses are awesome. I even like the chorus. But that synth solo is lacking. Also funny how the transition after the solo is exactly like the one that precedes the synth solo in My Bodom lol. The riff after the solo is fucking kickass.
EDIT: Speaking of My Bodom why isn't there a Bodom song on this record? It used to be something I looked forward to. We need to ask Alexi next time he does a AMA or something.
Under Grass and Clover is, sadly, still the best song I've heard from this record.
Now I know what Platitudes reminds me of? Ever Frost by Sentenced! But overall a very different song still. I fuckin love Sentenced though so those vibes are not a bad thing at all!
Also I think the vocals sound a lot better than they did on IWC
After a few listening, I love the intro the most and really like the rest of the song. But I think that, overall I prefer This Road. And UGAC still is there weakest song imo.
After many listens I gotta say I'm overall enjoying the song. Not in love with the overall structure of the song, found the keyboard solo to be not that exciting and really thought that around the 2:30 mark after they Janne's solo I was gonna hear some guitar solo. Sounds like it's missing something. Realllly feels like someone should be someone soloing over that bit.
I don't know what to think about the song...
1. It's somewhere really cool and I'm happy Alexi didn't ruin it with a lame pentatonic solo
2. It doesn't sound like Bodom. This is propably the most non-Bodom-sounding song I've ever heard. Could be an old Norther/Firewind/Sonata Arctica/In Flames/Tracedawn/Naildown/Nightwish song
3. I don't like Alexis voice in this song. Reminds me of shipping up to Boston which sucks
4. Overall it's a good song with some cool melodies but it's not Bodom for me
