just bought it today. feckin' awesome.
what kind of sound are they going for now?
I think it is horrible. Very poor.
like? This completely slipped past my radar. I imagine Aaaron's a big loss...
It sounds like 4 outtakes from the last album, just not very exciting. Yeah, Aaron probably is a big loss, but Don Devore has left as well now :( although I think he plays on the new album. The tracklisting and a song (Gets Paid) from it are on the Dim Mak site. That song is actually not bad, but I remember when I first heard On the Lash and thinking how amazing and different it sounded compared to the songs on Mono. Gets Paid just sounds alright.
didn't realise Don had left too. That sucks. Penance Soiree is a fanstastic album (esp that massive extended solo in Getting Bright At Night) but I still don't think it matches the pure desparation and nihilism of Mono. SPMC in particular is ridiculously bleak.
