Yeah, I was wondering what the fuck was going on.
What's going on with all the people online? Might have to do with the server problems earlier today...
I'm definitely liking Ugly, especially the atmospheric keys, and the FTR-ish solo. I've listened to it several times back to back with WIWI and the SKO fragments, to get more of an album context experience, rather than just as individual songs, and I'm getting a good feeling ... hurry up, March 8th! Oh, and Janne, any chance of COBtv4?
I love the new song!
I dunno about godly, I don't like the vocal style. It fits a few songs, but is pretty bad overall. Besides, he can't pull any decent vocals off during live gigs, which makes it even worse.
At least he's learning. If he's consistent he'll build up endurance.
I like to think that more people are there to hear him solo and sing along with the songs than listen to the quality of his voice.
I fucking love it! Come on! The opening riff kicks ass! And if it had gone in HCD ro FTR it would've not looked bad at all. Also, the solos, even if they're Alexi style and all, they are cool, and what do you expect, him to start playing Petrucci style?
I don't know about you, but I love it, after this and SKO I'm really pumped for this album, particularly if even Matt Hyde has said WIWI wasn't even a priority, which means the rest must be at least like Ugly and SKO. I really can't wait till March 8th.
Sick song for sure. Love the atmospheric background keys and the solo is killer...probably my favorite part of the song. It really sounds like he was trying to make the solo more "singable" like he's talked about. Great melodies in it.
I really like the vocals after 10 listens, I think they're pretty tight. Janne also pulled a pretty good solo, but so far SKO's key solo is my favourite, really cool!
Let's hope you're right
The keyboards in Ugly are the weirdest stuff I've ever heard. It brings to my mind a vision of a disabled child playing with toys, I can't help it, lol. The riff kicks ass tho. There are a few tracks better on the album tho I'm quite confident. I've a feeling this CD's in for a good number of spins.
I can actually understand that ....... the keys have that horror sound to them.
Lol. Your mind changes often.. just yesterday you had diminished hope or something and now you're quite confident. You just have to listen to RRF and expect RRF, and not hatebreeder. When I the first one or two seconds of the song I was like oh shit it's a trasher..... then after the first listen I was like what the fuck. Then you listen to it like 10 more times and you memorize the riffs and solos and it's suddenly something really good.
What are the chances of this song being an opener for COB concerts? It would DEF heighten the mood and atmosphere of COB, but it doesn't have an impactful ending.
On another note... I can't help but think what was the inspiration to write the lyrics of this song. hmmmm haha
Why not.. The intro riff and orchestra hits definitely have the vibe of an opener. The sudden ending could be "fixed" by moving directly to another song. It's just that strange keyboard melody that makes me suspicious about it as opener song. There could be other good openers too tho.
Sounds like ballet of the dead ones to me. Something creepy.
COBtv4 would be much appreciated
Dudes.. where's the 'satanic' sound/thing alexi mentioned?..
isn't it the verse =D
