VOLA - Applause of a Distant Crowd

It's out as of today! Sounds good so far. I have no idea how these guys manage to sound this huge, but they do. Also, so far anyway, the riffing isn't djenty like the last disc.

EDIT: Okay, the heavy guitars are still there, but used in a slightly different way, maybe?

It's a bit too laid back for my personal taste, but a good album nonetheless.

Yeah the lack of “djent” threw me for a loop at first, but it actually really suits them. Their melodies are huge and that’s absolutely their forte. Will be interesting to see how this album does long term (the debut was a real slow grower on me).

Same. It took me a while to really get into it, but now I love it. So even though my initial impression of this one isn't amazing, I'm still giving it time.
