    He has watched you fade in...
    ...you will watch him fade out.
    When the grip leaves his hands...
    I know you won't let him down!

    I was thinking to myself "psh, y'all are being over dramatic about this 'Fade In/Fade Out' song; Nothing More is good and all, but they're not on the level of bands that make me cry or call my parents" 
    *listens*

    *starts crying harder than I have in years by the time of the first chorus*

    *calls Dad at end of song with voice shaking to tell him I love him and appreciate everything he's done for me*

    Actually it's their 5th.  I obtained a physical copy of Save You/Save Me from @Cliffo when he was still posting on here

    After several listens of this album, I think I can confidently say there's no other band in active rock doing it better than these guys. The songwriting is so mature, and fresh. They set the bar for everyone to follow.

    Super pumped for some new Red. These guys always rock it out and I agree with the OBAR comments (variation). I like that they announced it only a bit over a month from release to not feel like we're waiting forever.

    Two months already and I still miss Chester.

    I don't think I've heard a better song than Fade In/Fade Out in at least the last 3 years. Amazing.

    I wrote to my brothers and my parents and told them I quick 'I love you' because of it.
    Also, note, I meant "God Went North" instead of "Jenny"

    Y'all talking about this one?

    Tony Romo seems like one of the nicest people in football (right up there with my man Larry Fitzgerald). I hope he loves his new job and enjoys great success in it.

    I thought she did a great job. I didn't even put two and two together that it was Rex Ryan, I thought he was a little uncomfortable - good wording choice!

    They had Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer at the same time. Then Mallett and Garoppolo at the same time for a bit. Then Garoppolo and Brissett at the same time. Also as Brady ages and Garoppolo suddenly becomes far more expensive to keep, New England has to be far more active in pursuing future possibilities at QB on the roster than they had to 10 years ago.

    Or they're aware of a pending suspension 😂

    What a crazy game last night. That right there is exactly why I love the NFL. It's so damn unpredictable. And as a Tyreek Hill fantasy owner, I'm very happy.

    I am incredibly stoked on that collaboration

    On a serious note, idk if you are a fan of this band or not, but I suggest you take a listen to this. 
  22. Koldes received reputation from NinjaNick101 in Brand New - 'Science Fiction'   
    Guys, guys! There is a brand new Brand New album! 
    *runs*

    I made a similar joke last night talking to my wife. I just said "Fortunately for me, none of my aunts look anything like her." And my wife looked at me with a look of disgust and contempt. I stand by it, and with you, my friend!

    And for the record, I'd fuck my aunt as well if she was Emilia Clarke.

    Upon a first (working, highly distracted) listen, this is really good. December's ending definitely had some Red vibes and the guitar breakdown towards the end of Reversal reminded me of Chevelle. So I can see those comparisons. I can hear the 10 Years reference as well because the lyrics aren't obvious and beat you over the head with simplicity, and the music is kind of moody, dark, serious type of stuff. I haven't listened to Demon Hunter in order to compare - although I have heard that their latest album has little unclean vocals, maybe I should give that a try. The other albums I hear a lot when listening to this is Sleepwave's 'Broken Compass' and CrashScene, almost like this is a sequel to their S/T album CrashScene. I can also hear a little but of Wovenwar and Heartist in the vocalist's tone. All four of these albums I just listed are some of my favorites from the past few years, so that's a good thing.
    I think this album is going to be one of my higher ranked albums in the year. Definitely high up as far as hard rock goes - I need to listen to it more and learn it, but it definitely has everything I'm looking for, especially the hard aggression and borderline vocals without ever crossing the unclean line, along with some really good variation as xeph advertised! No song has the same beginning or the same end. For example, Hallejulah's ending is him yelling with a hard stop, and then right into Infinite Winter's soft opening with delayed vocals. I'm not sure why more hard rock bands don't do this variation often anymore. The little bits of echoing vocals, little bit of pianos, some light electronics on this really give it this edge of variation that I like.
