Looking forward to this release.
I’m really excited for this. I’m especially looking forwar to the vocal and lyrical aspects of the album.
Hahaha I was dying for the first three minutes
Boy I’m not sure about this theatrical and mature thing they’re talking about. Honestly I just kinda wish they would go back to their Sleepwalking sound, but hey, I’m still pretty excited.
No thank you, please keep all southern elements away from Memphis May Fire.
Thats your opinion, I know a lot of people though that think that their first ep and album were the best. I kinda agree with this but the sound they do now, generic as it is, is done very well.
^^ Yeah. Their new sound is very solid, very tight; but not anywhere as fun or original as Sleepwalking and the self-titled. I’d be stoked on them going back to that sound, but I’m still into the new stuff.
I’ve read interviews with the dudes, and they’ve said they won’t go back to that sound because that really wasn’t them. Matty came in right before recording Sleepwalking, so he didn’t help write any of that music, and some of the lyrics were already written as well. This is the same for their bassist, cory. He came in right before recording sleepwalking and most of it was already written. Drummer and rhythm guitarist have only been on since the between the lies EP, which marked the change in sound, so they weren’t part of the southern sound at all. The only consistent member is their lead guitarist, Kellen. So really, they only have 1/5 left of the band that wrote those southern influenced songs. Safe to say they won’t be returning to that sound because they aren’t even the same band anymore.
The Hollow was perfect for me, Challenger was really solid, I’d preorder this in a heartbeat
Unbeliavably pumped for this. I also think the southern sound should stay in the past. These guys have the “Post-hardcore” sound down pat. The Hollow and Challenger were both amazing. Hoping they don’t go soft like many of their peers (BMTH, Sleeping with sirens, Of Mice&Men)
Which album(s) are you picking up this week?
