I really like it when Mikael goes for a more 'raspy', for want of a better word, vocal approach. Like in Arkhangelsk as well (best song off WATV)

Man this thread is way too dormant for such a great band, the other great DT. :metal

There's been some discussion here, but what's DTF's opinion on We Are the Void? I'm pretty divided on it. On one hand tracks like The Fatalist and Her Silent Language are among the best they've ever produce (the later might be my all-time favorite, just beautiful :hefdaddy). On other hand tracks like Arkhangelsk and I am the Void leaves me cold and I find myself skipping them a lot.

It's been nearly two years since the last post in this thread, but I think it's finally time to reanimate it since DT have released a new song from their upcoming album.

Not sure if I like it though :-\

It's okay but hasn't swayed me. My hype for this album is on ridiculous levels since the word "Projector" has been mentioned a lot of times describing it and Projector is my second favorite DT album.

I think that song is too focused on atmosphere than actual good riffs. Still looking forward to Construct though.

Just listened to it for the third time. I began to somewhat like it, but I really miss some memorable moments and, as adace already said, good riffs.
I'm happy they finally did a major change in their sound again, but I'm not too pleased with the result. But it's only one song and my excitement for the new album is still growing :tup

Ah man, Arkhangelsk is arguably my favorite song on the album.

I like that album a lot.

Not bad. I like it better than the first one they released.

A pretty euphoric review: www.soundshock.net/index.php/cd-reviews/4883-dark-tranquillity-construct-album-review

Interesting to hear about clean vocals playing an important role in the album :tup

My third post in a row here, but DT released a new music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BolGeBNPK1w

I hope somebody still reads this thread :D

EDIT: I'd say these are Stanne's best clean vocals ever !

Well, I'm not overly familiar with "the other DT", but it sounds good to me. I would never have thought he had such a nice clean voice.
if the flow checks out and your rhymes are dope enough then the police start unholstering their guns

I haven't seen it yet, and I can't put my headphones on for another ten minutes :sadpanda: I lovelovelove Mikael's cleans, in Projector and in general. More cleans = me a happy puppy.

I liked that song quite a bit. Has kind of a doomy feel to it. The clean vocals work really well in it.

For once I'm getting into a band at the right time :lol I've been listening to We Are the Void lately and I like it a lot, and Uniformity sounds awesome too - I need to get the new album when it comes out :metal

That was a really nice tune! I will check the album out.
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

I wonder how many different versions there will be with different 'bonus' tracks?
Listening to the previews on Australian iTunes, sounds good, our version is 12 songs.

Besides from the standard one disc edition there seems to be a two disc version with two bonus tracks on the second disc.

I've listened to the new album twice now and I think it's a major step up from the last one.

The standouts so far (besides the tracks that were already released) are Apathetic, What Only You Know (those clean vocals :hefdaddy), and Weight of the End.

Another great album from a great band :tup

After one listen (and I will have to force myself not to listen to it again until I own a physical copy), I gotta say I'm seriously impressed. Mikael's vocals (especially the cleans) are incredible, every song is interesting and unique and the whole atmosphere of the album is just amazing. Now it sucks even more that I won't be able to get my hands on an actual copy until about a week after the release date :-\

I got my copy today in person from Utopia Records in Sydney, Australia.
They have the US import, digipak with 2 bonus tracks and that brutally horrible alien cover.
Have to say it does sound different so far  :metal

Pretty much the same thing you posted here was posted there in the "2013:CONSTRUCT" (or something like that) thread :)

Just heard the bonus track "Immemorial." It's awesome, kinda reminds me of Insomnium. And "Photon Dreams" is a really dark instrumental piece.

Yeah, I've also read an interview where Mikael said Jivarp has been influenced by Dream Theater and Rush.
