    Rolling Stone is known for their colorful descriptions. I wouldn't blame them. XD
    Just look at their best of the year lists.

    Example, Deafheaven's "Dream House":

    "Nine minutes of holy-shit art-metal magnificence that builds and builds on waves of filigreed blast-beat drumming, blackened post-rock guitar jetstreams, and the circular-saw screams of George Clarke. Abstract? Sure, and better for it. It's cartoon-free heavy metal, boiled down to its guts-in-throat essence."

    (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/l...deafheaven-dream-house-19691231#ixzz2yUgG28te)

    I think Rolling Stone still considers that album to be their best album. :lol: M2M was the only LP album to have a score higher than 3 stars out of 5 and to be in a year-end-best list. :p

    It's 2014 and if people are listening to the radio, I would think it's mostly Sirius XM and they will play heavy songs on the heavy channels. I would expect any heavy Linkin Park song on Faction or Octane. Linkin Park is the biggest band in the world and should not be worried about if their songs are going to get radio play or not.

    Rob fucking broke his drums at the last day of recording. Poor guy but I really hope it was really worth it, he's incredibly talented :)

    The part about Rob was pretty cool!

    Whatever the reception this album will get, you can't deny they have put a lot of efforts into it, and even physical ones for that matter :lol:

    Have you actually heard any proper avant-metal?

    ... Granted, that is pretty dumb, Avant Garde guitar does tend to be very chunky and comparable to a jigsaw. I can think of a few examples.

    Castle of Glass wasn't that strange. It had a simple song structure and a memorable catchy chorus and melody. Nothing strange about it. It's single material

    "We're not 18-year-old kids making a loud record – we're 37-year-old adults making a loud record. And what makes a 37-year-old angry is different than what made us angry back in the day."

    Love the fact that the anger is still there

    This gets me excited. I've always thought that Rob's drumming has been some of the better drumming I've heard from what I listen to, but seeing that it'll improve greatly for this new records gets me excited.

    Rob is the best instrumentalist in the band and to read that he was really pushed hard makes me super excited. Can't wait to see him play these songs live.
