Thoughts?

I think their guitar tones are MUCH improved over previous albums. The Splawn Nitro gets a great sound on this album. At times it can be formulaic, but that's not always a bad thing. The choruses are often a little overly simplistic, but that's okay too. I was a bit bummed that there was all this great harmonized guitar work and very few solos.

Howard Jones' voice is really beginning to shine, especially on his melodic parts. I still dont understand his need to scream most of the verses when he has such an awesome voice, but i suppose that's a metalcore thing.

KsE thread pl0x.

And I like it, but it's not Alive or Just Breathing.

Ugh... I much prefer Howard's vocals over that guy. His screaming was alright but his melodic vocals were just bland.

I did a search on KSE threads and came up with nothing, so that's why i made this one.

Maybe i missed it because "KSE" was crammed in between all those other groups in the title.

Still pretty obvious.
