    I'm actually really impressed with the new album. I was so disappointed when Krysta left and I thought Late for Nothing was really lame. But Hail Mary goes hard as fuck. It's not as fun and goofy as their previous work but it's still really creative. Some riffs remind me of Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza. And that is not a bad thing at all.

    Loved the previous album, disliking the new album. Such monotonous deathcore with no surprises at all. Boring and annoying at the same time.

    Only band that can manage to have Dillinger Escape Plan and Emmure in their top similar artists.

    Fell off hard, but they literally aren't the same band anymore

    Courtney is a great vocalist but not nearly as interesting and dynamic as Krysta [2] Dynamics! That's what's missing vocal-wise on the latest record. It's either shouting very hard at mid range or generic clean singing. It's really hard to make it through the album because of that.

    They try to sound heavy instead of fun... do not like that.

    The album has it's moments but it could be more experimental and less deathcore to me. Still I'm a bit surprised that I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

    Not sure why everyone is loving this album, it has it's moments but it's very samey save one or two songs...Courtney is a great vocalist but not nearly as interesting and dynamic as Krysta. I kind of hoped for more off this album.
