It's fucking awesome dude. For whatever reason I haven't listened to anything they've put out since their debut over a decade ago, but this album hits on all of the same levels that first one did. It might even be better. I love that the formation of Misery Index essentially split Dying Fetus into two bands, because I swear both bands still sound so alike today, and that just gives me that much more of that groovy slam death that I love.
Hey Canadians. About how long does it take for a wristband-sized envelope to get from Calgary to Seattle? Wompwomp mailed me mine last monday and it had yet to arrive. Only a few more business days left and I'm contemplating panicking.
I remember years ago when I posted on a death metal forum there was a thread titled, "Beautiful Albums," where all of us metalheads could drop our guard and post all of our favorite pieces of music that we found, well, beautiful. Boxer had just come out and someone posted about it in that thread. I gave it a couple of listens and for the life of me couldn't understand what anyone would find appealing, much less beautiful about it. Fast forward to 2010, while I'm doing to my Sasquatch research I stumbled upon Slow Show, and it was all over right there. I'm not sure what happened between 2007 and 2010, but that song instantly became one of my all time favorites and propelled me into total fanboy status. I'm so happy to hear they finally clicked for you Nadine!
