I think those were just temporary replacements though, probably the same guys who played in the music video. Because the current line-up has 3 guys

Resurrecting this thread just to say I am so totally in love with this album. It is exactly the sort of music I have grown to love and now desire to hear. Easily one of the best bands I've discovered on DTF (after The Dear Hunter of course).

It has such a refreshing sound to it and I'm trying my hardest not to overplay it.

Think I'll go and listen to it again  :hefdaddy

Yeah, definitely one of the better albums to have come out this year.

What are your favourite songs you guys? I love pretty much everything on the album, but over time I find myself increasingly drawn to Come Hell or High Water, even over such great epics like Passage or Chromatic Aberration.

I found it passable and solid, but when I came back to it a bit later I really was pretty annoyed or bored by a lot of it  :lol
It's probably Six Roaming Owls or some other obscure band I've never heard of.

Parama, do you actually like music? :P I think the best thing I've ever seen you say about anything is "its okay i guess".

The first and last track on the album (Mute and Chromatic Aberration) have been my faves since the beginning and I'd say it's still that way, though I too got drawn into Come Hell of High Water a lot more as of lately, this one and Spark of Archon have amazing! choruses, though both have one or two gripes that make them not stand out as much to me.

My favorite song after Mute and the epic is Your Familiar Face though, very interesting tune, one I could probably show to non-metal fans and get some good reactions too.

That said, this is still one of my favorite 2010's albums easily, and I can't wait to hear more from these guys, I'm still in awe here.

I really love every song on the album, there is something I really love about Your Familiar Face, it gets stuck in my head a lot.

I really wish the album was a bit longer but then again as it stands I love it from start to finish so wouldn't want any filler. I'm recommending this and everything by The Dear Hunter to everyone I know at the moment as I think they both deserve a lot more exposure.

Spark of the Archon is my favorite.

Love this album. Still listen to it all the time. My kids actually request this cd fairly frequently. Come Hell or High Water is my favorite (and the kids favorite as well).
I love how it is a concept about a love triangle and most of the melodies are in 3/4 time.

Is it common knowledge that Native Construct are in the process of working on their second album? Just seen something on their Facebook, looking forward to this  :biggrin:

They've been "working" on it since the release of Quiet World, meaning that they said they had some ideas they were working on, but I wasn't aware of any progress in-studio or the writing process. Just checked facebook and it just looks like this dude (don't know his name to be honest I always mix them up) is just randomly putting some stuff together and uploaded it. I'll be excited for some real news and they did say they planned on releasing another album this year.

They just commented on some guy's question on FB too saying that it probably won't be a concept album this time around, I'm fine with that though if the music is even close to as good as Quiet World again. Fuck, this album is so good, I'm hyped

Yea, I saw that comment about it not being a concept album, that doesn't bother me too much. I don't always pay too much attention to the lyrics so as long as the music is good I'm not fussed.

So they had said before possibly a new album this year? That would be awesome, wasn't expecting that, suppose they still might not make it by the end of the year but fingers crossed. Would love for them to tour over this side of the world.

I got into this band recently. Holy cow, they're incredible! :hefdaddy

It's a shame that there's barely been word about a second album though. Really want to hear more from these guys, as I think they have a ton of potential. :metal

They keep announcing other stuff like guitar lessons, isolated tracks etc., feels like they're just delaying the seemingly never to be released sophomore album.

Really not even thinking about it, if it ever comes I will start following them again immediately, but for the time being I don't really care, they've released probably one of the best progmetal debut albums I've ever heard so that's good enough for me.

Kind of reminds me of the ongoing situation with The Protomen. It's almost been a decade since they released Act II and aside from two tracks being released about three or four years ago, there's no sign of Act III being released anytime in the near future.

However, while I'm not very familiar with Native Construct, I will say I've heard that it took the band several years to write and release Quiet World (from 2011 to 2015, I think), so maybe they're just incredibly nitpicky about the level of quality they want to put out with their material?

But yeah, Quiet World is easily one of the most impressive debut albums I've seen this decade, alongside Witherfall's Nocturnes & Requiems and Haken's Aquarius. :metal

here's a recent interview with their singer

I get the sense their music isn't the only thing he does.
