Meh.

5th best album all but guaranteed. The last four lead singles were Sober, Stinkfist, Schism and Vicarious (among the best tracks on those respective albums and good lead single picks). I sure hope this one has better to offer than that.

Had a Eulogy and H vibe early then went into a 46 & 2 sounding bass riff in the bridge. If they return to something resembling an Aenima era sound most people are going to be very happy.

Maynard is back to his very best.

Maynards vocals on point. A mixture of three distinct singing styles in one song.

Moments of epic bass.

Danny being Danny. Love everything about it.

Has a very Puscifer breakdown for about 15 seconds late in the piece
There is one part where Maynard sounds just like he does in Grand Canyon.

I had to remind myself that every Puscifer album has come out since 10k Days.

Loving the track so far. Took a few listens to sink in as there is a lot going on. I’m loving the structure (shared with Descending and Invincible) of having very long songs with distinct movements within them.

Great song, love the second half in particular. Maynard's voice has aged quite a bit in the last 13 years, it's a little unrealistic to expect it to sound otherwise.

Bring on Aug 30!

AEnima has to be one of the best songs ever recorded.

As much as I dig the new tune, I wanted AEnima mark II.

I can’t wait to hear the new album.

It's an interesting choice for a single. It sounds like track 1 of the album to me. It feels like the whole track is building towards something and only partially gets there, like it's leading to what's next which I figure is the rest of the album. Invincible is a much more immediately banging song which I suppose is why they debuted that and Descending live. Fear Innoculum took me my first listen just to get a feel for where everything is, it was second to fifth listens that I really fell in love with the song. Invincible is more like 'oh, this is an interesting guitar intro... and here I am... holy s**t that bass riff! I LOVE THIS ALREADY!'.

Overall, having heard three songs I'd say I'm extremely hyped for the whole album. The studio track has a beautiful mix, IMO. Gives each instrument space, nothing feels too loud or like it's drowned out, nowhere does it sound muddy, feels like there is plenty of dynamic range as well.

Pre-ordered the limited edition from JB. $140, bloody Sony gouging Australians. I understand this packaging is what delayed the album from a possible May-July release as well so it better be mind-blowing.
