Meh, I'm used to great artists being arseholes.
I like Deathcult but even it does feel a little "old metal" to me.
That's one of the main reasons I enjoy The Chasm! I tend to think the new one will not blow us away but will surpass most of this year's flotsam.
I think it's more commercial perhaps because they're in a big label now and they want to sell as many copies as possible.
Granted they are owned by Earache but there are several other bands on WW like Exmortem Deathwitch Anata, Insision ect and those bands have not released anything remotely commercial(they do suck though)
It's not nearly as good, IMO.
Album concept here.
