My review of Kingdoms

Postby The Ultimate » 16 Mar 2018, 22:13

Whats up you shit sucking worthless pukes!

After months of listening to the album, I've formed some conclusions that I can share with you.

Overall Impressions

I understand the criticisms about the songs on this album sounding samey as far guitar tone and notes go, and the drums don't sound pleasant or natural in the mix. Those were my first impressions too. But...

I think that if you continue to listen to the album over time instead of hastily dismissing it, you will pick up on the uniqueness of each song. There are some songs that are really good in fact, and I actually heard traces of Altars of Madness on one. Steve did a fantastic job. I don't hear any noteworthy solos from Trey which is unfortunate. But you know what, Trey is at retirement age as as far metal is concerned, he's just not going to be a fountain of new ideas or energy. Nevertheless there are some very good songs that are not helped by the production but hey who knows they might sound a lot better live. I've had a great time with the album on my car stereo.

Best, most listenable song: Paradigms Warped is the best song on the album. It is the most repeat-listen worthy.

Other good songs: From the Hand of Kings sounds a lot like a song from Altars, like Maze of Torment, must be the drums. These are also great songs; the Pillars Crumbling, Architect and Iconoclast, From the Hands, For No Master, the Fall of Idols.

I would say that I got my money's worth.

'I don't hear any noteworthy solos from Trey which is unfortunate'

What about 'The Pillars Crumbling' and 'The Fall of Idols'?
