    the band has given this album a slow drip with over the course of five 7 inches over the first 6 months of the year. ten tracks of the twelve tracks are available to stream - it fucking rips.

    full thing is out on July 24th, 2020 via Rise Records

    get into it.

    1) Feed A Pigeon, Breed A Rat
    2) Crippling Poison (feat. Aaron Heard of Jesus Piece)
    3) Seeing God
    4) Solace and Serenity
    5) The Lucid Dream (feat. Jess Nyx of Mortality Rate)
    6) I breathed in the smoke deeply. It tasted like death, and I smiled.
    7) Crossgates
    8) Inverted Person
    9) Chhinnamasta
    10) One Thousand Painful Stings (feat. Courtney LaPlante of Spiritbox and Iwrestledabearonce)

    Going to be honest, I never actually expected Acacia Strain to change up their sound significantly, but now that they've done it, I'm impressed how good it is.

    Gravebloom is excellent and Death is The Only Mortal is still my favorite record from them

    Coma Witch is my favorite. Home to one of my favorite lyrics ever, not just TAS.

    "I wish there was a Hell so you could go there to rot
    I wish there was a God so I could slit his fucking throat
    I went to your funeral and nobody came
    I only showed to piss in your grave"

    Nothing I have heard since then has matched the raw hatefulness of those words.

    I heard one of their newer songs on the radio and was so fucking stoked on it. When I Shazam'd it, I thought there was a problem with the app. I closed it and tried again. It perplexes me that they went in the direction that they did, but I fucking love it. They weren't a band I ever liked before, but I embrace the sludginess.

    Never really been a fan other than a couple tracks from 3750/Dead Walk that I liked in HS, but the EP from December was cool. I will look into the new stuff.

    I highly recommended giving the later part of their discography a re-listen

    Solace and Serenity - The Lucid Dream - i breathed in the smoke deeply. it tasted like death, and i smiled.

    insane 3 track stretch, almost unfair
