Indeed. Sydow was so fucking energetic. Also none of the music after he left really impressed me as much as Layers of Lies, especially Secondary Effects which is a pure and soaring anthem. One of the catchiest songs and choruses ever.
you remember what happened when Hetfield thought he could sing....end of good Metallica. Clean vocals on this are too much in that vein. I agree with other posts, this is weakened by the clean vocals, makes it seem too commercial or too mehcore. Shame, I like the riffage and progressions.
What the fuck is with the complaints about vocals? This album fuckinc rules. So much awesome riffing. I love the vocals as well. Above all the awesome guitar and drum work there are even catchy choruses.
The Hetfield similarities are there but they are few and far between. I'm hearing much more of a Jon Howard / Chester Bennington thing going on I'm afraid. The harsh vocals are great though, no complaints there. And musically it's just pure awesomeness.
The vocals ruin the new album for me :( I see I'm not the only one who thought they sounded a bit like Hetfield at times. Definitely don't agree that they could use purely clean vocals though, purely harsh vocals would be far better :P
fuck Slayer, fuck Sepultura and fuck ur motherfucking thrash metal. Darkane rules and if u r still missing the old vocalist stop whining. its not like the new guy is bad. the music and lyrics r still awesome
Wow, what the fuck is up with all the hate on this amazing band? Metalcore? HA! Not even close BelphegorPepe. Boring and weak....wonder what you have been smoking Dyum97? Well, seeing as their music has a shitload of thrash metal influence, I think the tag is justified. Even though I label them as melodic death metal.
to anyone hating on darkane... go die on the fucking toilet! darkane are the greatest band in history! its not my fault your mum brought you up on britney and spice girls. go listen to your beiber and slim dusty albums just to mix it up a bit.
