I like that shoutout to the juggalos at 0:16, tribute to violent J

I poured out some Faygo for Violent J. He was taken from us too soon.

The softening of the band name font is never a good sign.

This band has really gone down hill since 2008

Borrowing album art liberally from the last Deafheaven release.

Yikes, Mushroomhead could teach these guys a thing or two.....

I expected clean vocals to begin at 30 seconds or so. Not the worst thing in the world but I won't ever listen to this again.

So is that the new formula?? Heavy and then instead of a generic breakdown you do a generic singing part? The little singing parts are not going to bring in new fans that don't like screaming and it's going to divide that the fans that like the heaviness!

people are f*cking ridiculous and elitist about heavier bands using clean vocals. it's insane to me, the riffs and chord progressions in this song are so dense and atmospheric. really amazing stuff that i wasn't expecting from them. honestly reminds me of songs like the end of flesh and the darkest day of man. i think the clean vocals work super well in this context. they're constantly exploring how they can express themselves through music and i feel like it shows on this song. you don't have to like it, but claiming that they're selling out or being disingenuous somehow is ridiculous. like i'm not a fan of veil of maya's switch in style for the most part, but i can still respect that they're growing into the musicians that they want to be and having fun with it. that's not to say don't criticize, but a lot of these comments about their style change are in bad faith.
