Great, though would it be an album of actually new stuff that hasn’t been part of live sets for a decade this time? I still really liked the last two albums, mind you…
I get less and less excited by each GYBE release, sadly… but I still have enough residual interest in them to hear what they’ve been up to.
I’m under the impression they’ve been performing new material recently (“New Song 2” seems to have a few videos on youtube), but not sure if it’s anything that made this album.
i thought the last one was new stuff?
think it was written post reform but they had been playing it live long before it came out, but that is always what they did
everything about this look proper fake
If this is real then YESSSSSSSSS!
Yeah, Godspeed (and a silver mt Zion) have always played most of a new album for ages before they release it, in the same way that Swans do. I guess so it’s nailed before they go into the studio.
Of the two new songs they’ve been playing one sounds amazing. Other pretty standard
This cover looks fake/lazy though
Can’t wait to pre-order this from Amazon.
As a fairly massive Godspeed fan, fucking well excited for this! The past two albums might not be up there as the best, but really like the production/mixing of them in comparison to the earlier stuff.
i haven’t listened to the old stuff a massive amount (cos most of what they do is far too long really isn’t it?) but Mladic is a fucking beast.
nah, perfect length. It’s why all their followers are shit because they apparently can’t write beyond 12 minutes, so you get this constantly crescendoing every 5 minutes bullshit.
i went to see them just after the last album came out and the good bits were really good but the endless drones in between got on my nerves a bit
that I’ll give you. Last album was good, but mostly just felt like one of their tracks extended a bit too far.
i remember enjoying the album itself (it’s a nice digestible length actually) but haven’t listened to it for a while
would love godspeed to do a 10 track album of just the crescendos
new tracks they’ve been performing:
Never understood people complaining about that with the last couple of records
