I thought the last album was absolutely fantastic and by far the best thing they've ever done. It had a lot more focus than anything else they'd done previously, and leaned way more into their power metal and trad metal influences than their previous releases (which incorporated more melodeath elements). There doesn't appear to be a single yet, but there's a teaser video on their Facebook page here and...well, in that article.

They're another band that started from un-remarkability and became more impressive each album. I'm not sure that curve can sustain, as their latest two were pretty great, but I won't mind if they can top them.

Apex was one of my top 10 of 2017 so I'm hyped for this. Crazy how much they improved on that last one and with this one being a sequel story-wise I figure the sound will maintain those stronger qualities as well.

Ooooooh, fuck yes, really looking forward to this. Apex was fantastic, and I really liked their little EP last year (Northwest Passage).

Just realized I didn't include Apex in my album of the decade list even though I meant to :durr:

Finally! Loved Apex, I'm looking forward to this.
Awakening is one of the best power metal songs of the decade, imo.

Apex is fantastic so I'm completely here for this.

The new song is fine. Opening wail is nice and so is the riff but it didn’y give me the level of instant catchiness as the stuff on Apex did. Could be a grower that fits well within the album as a whole though.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this track. I'm not liking how the ride cymbal comes across though, it almost sounds programmed.

Yes the production is definitely a lot different than on Apex. Not in a good way, imo.

New song is here, just in case anyone was looking for it like I was:

I think it's pretty great. It's not quite as good as the best moments on Apex, but I'll take it!

The new song's indeed a bit of a grower. It's less immediate than...say, "Awakening" or "The Matriarch", but it's still pretty damn good. I like the cosmic feel the keyboards give it, definitely fits with the concept they're going for.

Really love the song. I know the point of the video is to be cheesy as fuck, but they could have at least made sure to not get the singer's earplugs in the shot.

That video is cheesier than Chicago Deep Dish pizza, and I love it. Brittney is one of those female singers that can do no wrong, like Heather from Helion Prime's first album, or Ida from Triosphere. Just a strong, clear voice with a ear for cool harmonies.

What an amazing song, it gets better everytime i spin it. Love the synths adding to the spacey theme of the album. Kool lyrics too.

This song has grown on me a ton and I fucking love it now.

Another new single, "Soulbound".
I love it - even better than the first single! Very energetic and catchy.

Sweet shit.

Don't want to put the focus on it, but I still have a bit of a crush on Brittney, even when she's portraying a rotten version of herself.

I've listened to the album quite a few times now and really like it. It gets better with each listen for sure. It does have some elements that I'm not sure everyone will be on board with (AOR/glam stuff in particular), but I think those are some of the coolest tracks. Really looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks of this album.

I got Apex a few weeks ago and I've pretty much listened to it every day since then. Instantly preordered the new album when I heard about it coming out. Looking forward to hearing it.
