    Their new album hasn't been officially announced yet... but that hasn't stopped the resourceful folks of the internet from putting it out there ;)

    There was news last week it was coming out on December 9th and was going to be called Voltaic Oceans, but then today news came out that it's actually coming out this Friday and will be titled The Stage, which is the name of the song that was just released.

    No I know... what I mean is... it's out there. Even before "officially" being announced lol

    That's pretty amazing. I'm not sure I've ever seen an album leak before its announcement before.

    Also, that's a super fast turnaround, though. I wonder why they're releasing it so soon after the planned announcement?

    A7X is the Beyonce of mainstream metal I guess.

    Really curious to hear this. I wasn't too into Hail to the King, but I'm not ashamed to admit I actually like this band.

    The single/title track is the best they've sounded in a while... honestly I'm starting to listen a bit before bed and am not hating it yet lol

    Wait, the album itself leaked already? I thought you meant the info was out there before the band officially announced it hahaha

    Three songs into the new album and I like it better than Hail to the King.

    On first listen, I don't like this album much. I didn't find a single one of the songs to be interesting or memorable. Most of the songs blended together for me, and I felt like the songwriting was pretty aimless. I remember enjoying about two minutes in the second half of Exist, but the nothing else did much for me.

    I'll give it a few more listens in case it turns out to be a grower.

    Yeah I actually gave up about halfway through last night because I needed to get sleep lol... plus the album wasn't really doing anything for me after hearing a few tracks in full.

    YEAH THE GUILLOTINE

    Have the leak downloaded. Probably won't be able to give this a listen until lunch time. Hopefully I'll enjoy some of it.

    Started my listen now. I have very low expectations.
     
  21. " Paradigm " is such a fucking killer song.

    A few of the tracks were cool and the album is pretty much what I was expected/hoping for but I think I'm just over this band.
     
  23. It's more than what I expected, I honestly didn't expect it to be as heavy as it is.

    Im loving it, just a few tracks in. All my favorite bands releasing great stuff this year. ETID, A7X, AFI, Conor Oberst, hopefully Portugal the Man. 2016 as a year sucked ass, but it gave me so much great music.

    I think the second half of the album is stronger than the first, and while it's better than Hail to the King, it still doesn't hold a candle to City of Evil or Waking the Fallen, or even Self-Titled or Nightmare. I think they really miss The Rev's songwriting input.
