Could have been worse. I recall a video when Tragic Idol was suppose to come out in some months ahead and the band showed a ''teaser'' consisted of just a drum beat. :lol:

^^Nah that would have been preferable because there is nothing to evaluate :D

Doesn't sound too different from Medusa, just with some more clean vocals thrown in. Not bad but it doesn't blow me away.

Nah Medusa had some balls. This sounds limp. Mediocre as hell.

I actually expected you to like it. :lol: The video clip of the track kinda sucks though! That growl once the guy vomits! :lol:

^^^It just sounds weak to me. Guitars have no balls at all, and Nick's growls sounds bad to me. His clean vocals sound clumsy as well.

I hope the rest of the album is better.

That's fucking dreadful. The whole kick in the arse irony of all of this is that PL could probably record a fucking brilliant album in the style of their old, classic stuff. Greg can write heavy-as-fuck riffs and Holmes can still do proper DM vox. I don't know why they're wasting their time on this nonsense.

I can imagine this new song would have left a better impression to me, had it been released as a pre taste for The Plague Within but now that we're already 5 years further, this stuff sounds rather pale. It must be tricky for a band this far in their career to release new material that's somewhat heavy, preferably nods to their earlier stuff while at the same time avoiding any obvious rehashes whatsoever.

The comment section of the video is way better than the actual song itself :lol:

Who is this new vocalist ? Fire his asap and re-record everything with Holmes. This is weak af

I’ve had a really hard month and it sure isn’t getting any easier with the virus outbreak and all. I was literally just about to lose my shit and dissolve into a sobbing mess when this came up. Thank you for all the music. Looking forward to the new album. Thank you.

A song with the lyrics, ‘end your life’ saved you from being a sobbing mess?
This world, honestly!

It's odd isn't it?

I liked Medusa, but this is honestly the first PL in a while that I'm not really looking forward to based on early samples.

Admittedly my enthusiasm for them has waved over the past 8-10 years, but I still enjoy hearing new music from them. I derived no enjoyment whatsoever from their new song. It sounds lazy and cobbled together. Both the growls and clean vocals are weak, and the guitar work is nothing special either.

Some dude apparently heard it already and shared his thoughts on it on Facebook. I know these people aren't always the most rational folks out there when they review shit, but his brief review isn't the most promising out there. Apparently there's a ballad on there and he also claims one track would fit on PL's s/t and another one on Symbol of Life. :?

Symbol of Life > The Plague Within

That review makes the album sound good. Probably better than it actually is!

Here's a new song called ''Ghosts'' - straight up old school gothic rock. If their mid period sounded like this, I'd probably liked that phase of them. Holmes' voice sounds really effective on this stuff too; makes me wonder why he hasn't tried to sing like this more before.

He has done those vocals before.

The song is decent, but I don't like the sound very much. Too compressed or something.

It has leaked. I bet most of you would dislike it though!

It's more an album that basically captures what the band has been doing since the last decade or so...with some old school goth rock influences popping up.

I'm totally a bigger Paradise Lost fan now since the first time I saw this thread.

And thanks to the recs, I've got Medusa, one of the best ones in my opinion.
