    After seeing other places give this some praise I’m happy to see you guys rate it below average. It’s just Atreyu style screamo with a symphony and pointless riffs, masquerading as something more than that silliness.

      That embedded song could’ve been Avenged Sevenfold pre-Black Album II: Hard Rock Boogaloo if the part at about 2:10 was played on guitar instead of by a symphony. I honestly don’t know who this is supposed to appeal to.


    Their new album is incredible, this whole review seems like a personal issue and you should see someone for that haha.

    • Anon a mouse

      Only personal issue seems too be your criticism of the review. You should see someone for that.

  • Guh, you had to be honest. Now we’ll have to read a second review of this one, too.

    • “Track titles are unnecessary – pick any song other than classical
      instrumental “Hereafter” and you’re left with cinematic,
      larger-than-life strings underlaid by guitars whose sole contribution is a staticy, atmospheric fuzz.”

      I’d add to your thought here what you almost say by pointing out how indistinguishable the tracks are: the orchestral bit is simply bland. It’s like movie soundtrack crap, that while it works fine while you’re watching the film, becomes utterly hollow and forgettable on its own.

    The embedded track is just silly.

    “On Laurestine, So Hideous have essentially given the world what no one asked for: Deafheaven with a backing orchestra.” – to each his own mate, but based upon this I’m ordering this album right now! :)


      Such a great album! I got the vinyl but couldn’t wait for it to come in, so I got it on iTunes so I could listen.

    This is a waste of studio time.

  • Yawn.
