    Damn, that album artwork is so traditionally metal in the best way. (Does anyone see what I mean by that?)
    Can't wait.

    i fuck with the single heavy. very once more round the sun sounding, but i reckon thats intentional as the opener to rope us in.

    The Blabbermouth article linked to in the OP has this description of the sound of the album –

    Which I'm totally fine with. I really liked OMRS and I don't think we're ever getting another Leviathan or Crack the Skye.

    I'm confident with whatever they do. EVERY album they've done has been solid. As big a fan as I am of their older work, I embrace the evolution and look forward to see where they're headed.

    every record has been a continuation of the last record in some kind of way besides maybe the hunter, so im sure it'll be great

    Pretty poppy, but a good poppy. I dig it.

    The bridge and the dual solo is pretty good, but if I wanted to listen to Queens of the Stone Age - I'd listen to them. That chorus is just...ooooof.

    It's a nice return to the style and font of the first four albums
