Yet again confirming my belief that every metal band should have either a keyboardist or orchestral accompaniment. It's not that Artifacts In Motion was bad by any stretch, but seriously, those new elements set this new EP apart just that much more.
The gig was dope as fuck. It was nice seeing these guys performing in their hometown after a long break. They played only one new song. New vocalist was great live and they had a new unknown guitarist. No idea if he was only playing for the gig or a new member.
Let's see if they keep their promise. Last time they cancelled their gig two days before the show. CoC should be performing on this Friday and I will inform on this shoutbox if they performed any new songs + if they have a new guitarist or will they continue with the original 4 men style.
EP update sounds cool. Guitars sound a bit more math-ish and there's more electronics/atmosphere. Not sure how it'll compare to Artifacts in Motion, but it doesn't sound like it'll be bad by any means.

I just heard the new EP song and the new vocalist wasn't so bad and they sound so different. Although I'm going to miss the old style of COC when the old vox and guitarist were in =/ it just wasn't as powerful as Artifacts in Motion. but who knows, they're probably making a masterpiece
v I'd agree with CoC being better than BoO if they got more into the melodic/atmospheric side of their music. Artifacts in Motion fucking rules, but there's too many moments where they go chugga chug and not much else.
They already have a new vocalist. They were supposed to perform yesterday but few days before the gig their lead guitarist left the band due to personal reasons. Right now, they're looking for a new guitarist.
