This is the first from them I've heard. I think Tom Warrior may be the smartest and most honest dude in metal at this point. But this CD sucks.
Like most old school bands trying to go new-school, they build it around the vocal rhythm, not shape everything around the guitars.
Riffs have gotten weaker in response. It's simple like a doom-metal band, but with lots of post-rock and indie-elements, trying to avoid being pure death metal. Most of the ARE YOU TALKIN TO ME? elements have been replaced by something like whatever Hail of Bullets is; really one-dimmensional death metal structured around the vocals, I guess, like ARE YOU TALKIN TO ME? but more cheesily modern.
This is fairly awful. If it weren't by ex-Celtic Frost songwriters, it would be ignored.
