We go hard.


"Slow Decay" by The Acacia Strain is out today. If you had told me in January that on top of all the wild poo poo 2020 was going to have in store, TAS would release their best record, I would have lol'd. Here we are though. Just a super solid album front to back, combines all elements of their sound over the years into one package that just works. Low crushing breakdowns, twosteps, catchy one-liners in the lyrics, and slower doomy tracks. All of the vocal features are on point too. I'll fanboy for this record all fuckin day.

obviously an interesting strategy for release, but it feels like the day of the album drop lost some of its potential excitement bc we've been given a slow drip for the past few months. i'm not sure whether i'm stoked to have a steady stream of songs or if i would have preferred a drop all at once to really soak it all in on my own time.

in a sort-of-but-not-really comparison it's like netflix drops an entire season all at once to let you tackle it on your terms where they used to do an episode a week (or whatever). TAS did the opposite with this new album and i gotta say i don't think i prefer it.

also sort-of-related, but i really hate how spotify handles singles from upcoming albums these days. idk if it's just metal/hardcore but it'll go like this:

- first single drops and it's a "single" with just that song

- second single drops and it's a "single" with the new song and the previous one

- third single drops and it's an "EP" with the new song and the two previous ones

- the album drops, and now that artist page has 4+ "albums" to sift through when choosing what to listen to

loving UX is a god drat mess

if you ever wanted to be a singer of a metalcore band but couldn't write lyrics, you could literally just watch old wrestling promo videos for inspo


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkEl_R0dTfY


code:
What happened tonight
Was already written
It was written a long time ago

When the warriors that came before me and you
Saw to it that what we must do is beyond us
I stood with my back to you
And i knew you would not come
When i looked into your eyes
I saw walls
Walls built with fear
Fear of the red death for you

Every man stands by himself

You still do not understand
You still have mistrust
I need not your protection

Look at the walls
The warriors that could not come
Have attached themselves to the outer structure
They’re seeping through

Feeding me
Feeding me

With the power to survive
They ride on my back
For my protection

I need not you

Do you have what it takes
To be the most powerful force in the entire universe

Look at me! Look at me!

Without the pain
The desire to withstand the pain
And give you the utmost in battle and combat

For i am the chosen one

Absolutely, v goofy vibe in those videos but half of the breakdowns on that album really make you feel like you’re being dragged down into hell

Also recommend the new Mikau. It’s like attack attack if they were good https://www.youtube.com/playlist?li...RIn6eerPDGxrK90

most definitely, and having one of the vocalist's arms pinned behind their back the whole time.

speaking of that, I'm way, way too excited for the new Misery Signals album. Reviews are coming out now and I really can't handle the wait

I can't wait, really stoked on it.

Between TAS Slow Decay, Misery Signals, and ETID9, heavy music is one of the only bright lights to 2020.

I found these guys at random on Twitter a while back and while I have a gut aversion to dual vocalist bands, they're real good.

yeah it's aoty so far for me. I think Old Ghosts is one of the best songs they've ever written.

and seconded, I might schedule a US trip around Furnace Fest next year so I can actually see them.

holy poo poo lol

i dont live in NY anymore but i have definitely been to fins pub (now called shakers i guess) a few times.

i saw the contortionist there when they only had exoplanet, so around a decade ago.

then i saw antichrist demoncore around ~6 years ago when they dropped their self titled LP

why in the gently caress did they leave all the lights on at full fluorescent blast tho

Mirrors and Controller were albums of those years for me when they came out. I somehow missed Absent Light, and didn't listen to it until a couple of years after it was released. I've spent the least amount of time with it and holy poo poo I'm going to be spinning it much more. It's like having TWO new misery Signals to listen to!!

yeah, i don't like absent light nearly as much as their other releases, but Ultraviolet is a real return to form imo
