A 3 song sampler can be found at this link:
http://soundcloud.com/decibel-streaming ... tion-field

At first listen, the three tracks sound quite good especially with Kyle handling vocals. He holds up pretty well. Musically, it's also quite solid so far. The official release is supposedly this week according to the MA page. (Edit: It's already out)

Definitely looking forward to this!

The cover art sucks major photoshop balls, I guess I'll listen to it but my expectations aren't quite high.

Yea the cover art is complete garbage but I guess it's supposed to be a homage to their album 'Run Towards the Light'

which it seems to be the case cause this song sounds like they are going back more towards that sound. Not the biggest fan of the vocals cause I liked the super highs but the vocals kinda grew on me as the song went on.

Hmmm, they got samples on Decible and they sound a lot better than what I heard with that awful Kory Clarke on vocals, but still doesn't come anywhere close to the great old early material. I'll give those songs a few more listens though and possibly pick it up. I find it a bit funny that for a band I have had so many friends dismiss because of their christian leaning lyrics, the new singer sang this back in when he was in Exhorder:

My religion is myself
Desecration's my belief
Your misfortune's my enjoyment
And I thrive on your disease
I don't care about your feelings
Pain and torment's what you'll get
I'll rape your heart of love
And I'll make you eat my shit

I'll piss on your grave
Total desecration
I spit in your face
For no apparent reason
I'm sick and depraved
Society's garbage of what I'm made
Devoted to hatred
Unholy war and violent ways

Virgin Mary's cursed to hell
Who needs her anyway?
The Pope is slaughtered in the street
Catholics grieving at his feet
Painting of satanic stars
Desecrating church's walls
I have no rules, I have no mercy
No remorse, I feel no pity, life is death to me
The desecrator

Agnostic beliefs
Defecate before the holy world's maternity
Origin of the species, strongest shall survive
Blitzkrieg tactics upon your family life
I need no reason, there's no cause
All I need is victims to exercise my hateful laws

My pleasure is your pain, your grievance is my gain
Desecration's my greatest pleasure in life
Your children will be my sacrifice
Offspring slaughtered, lacerate your spouse
My itch is scratched, I feel relieved
That I brought your fucking world down to its' knees

Fuck your God
No regard for your religion
Pacifist
No need to pray for my forgiveness
Exhorted coitus
Beg me to release your life
Slaughtered child
How could your lord allow him to die?

Placid world once alive
Dig your grave and jump inside
Never trust, never love
Dig your grave it's just as such
You weakened hearts are torn to shreds
A lying beast now has your head
Kill, rape, hurt, steal
No living time to heal
Desecrated, desecrated, desecrated, desecrated, die!!

I think it sounds more along towards their old material... def not as great but in the style and more upbeat pace it def recalls that for me.

I never gave a shit about their lyrics either way.


fun side note of me: I didn't check out this band till I was reading an interview with C4AM95 and they said their main influeces were Trouble and Confessor and before every show they would listen to 'Run Towards the Light' had to go seek both out after that.

That cover isn't actually too bad, mostly. The only thing that's killing it is that two-dimensional black... thing. It just clashes with the surrounding environment. They got everything else right: the eerie field, the lightning bolts, even the shadow of the black object. It's sad, really. It's like they almost had it. :P

Listened to the first song. I'm not much of a traditional listener, so I can't really attest to the quality of this in relation to other examples of this genre. But I found it listenable. :)

the more I look at that cover the more I wish they did something better. I really hate the stock font they used for the album title.

He could've pulled a Mustaine.

Its an album cover of a Christian band. Could've been much worse. I like most of their stuff so I'm expecting a good release

Took it to the gym this morning. I don't know what else to say....it SOUNDS like a Trouble album. Straight up. Better than SMC for sure but about on par with the 2 before it. Kyle Thomas kills it, he does a great job. Every song is pretty catchy and driving. Like I said, it sounds like fucking Trouble. Not sure what else they could've delivered in 2013.

The ballad is gay though. [DELETE] !!

Aw hell yeah, Kyle Thomas is a great singer and he sounds awesome on those new tracks. I am now excited about the upcoming album, and I feel a bit bad for having written nu-Trouble off years ago.

Newest Trouble I'd heard before this was Plastic Green Head which sucked a fair amount. This is pretty cool.. will be interesting to see what the full length delivers. AWFUL cover art though.

I dont know whats wrong with the album. They've done everything right and it sounded awesome when I started listening but halfway through I was bored. The album should've been shorter
