I probably would've agreed with you 4-5 years ago about the new song, but as I am today I actually like it a lot. I admit the production could be better, but it definitely sounds like a Shipwreck song to me
New Shipwreck song is so disappointing. The guitar tone makes the whole thing sound muddied, and has almost no melodic value which is what Shipwreck is known for. It has no real dynamics and is essentially him running through the lyrics and I don't feel anything from it. Doesn't sound like a Shipwreck song at all.
as far as I am aware, Anno Domini translates to "In the Year of Our Lord", and is correlated not to the death of Jesus, but the traditional year of birth (the actual year of birth is a sticky issue), so yes, I am aware of religious leanings.
ANYWAY, cool band.
Hope you're aware that Anno Domini, in theory, means After Death..... The AD and BC time period is centered around Christian belief. Consequently, the initials are a direct correlational to Jesus' death.
Since we live in a completely humanistic nation (assuming you're from the US) the line between church and state has been extinguished which is why we now have BCE and CE.
Fun facts for the day...
I'm so fucking stoked on this band right now. Honestly. On first listen Abyss is a pretty awesome Hardcore record. On fifth listen and after reading the lyrics, Abyss is one of the best Hardcore records I've ever heard. This band deserves so much more praise and attention. I haven't been this stoked on a band in a long time.
