    this is stupendous. I miss some of the harsh vocals from the last album, but the layering of the guitars is spellbinding in this.

    Honestly can’t tolerate the clean vocals. They sound awful to me, and usually I don’t mind clean vocals.

    Also, they look like a Christian rock band posing for their album cover.

    I like this. Yes the clean vox kinda suck (mainly because I can’t stand how he sounds like the dude from Incubus), but there is enough techy-death to keep it interesting. Also they seem to focus more on the song writing than just stringing along riffs. This is a similar evolution that The Faceless took. People didn’t like Autotheism because of the more song-writing approach.
