i really like this album, and i like into the moat. But i think an eight may have been TOO nice. i would have gone with a 7, i think the ep is much better. Good review though for a good cd
dont compare this gay band to coalesce. k thnx
that band kills ! and his first album too...it blows me away, so don't be blind and listen to this (unconventional maybe) album, and likes it!(so if you don't, it doesn't matter!)...
This record is f*ck'n insane. Great review, great band.
am i the only person that things every metal blade release is overproduced? it's just really too perfect and not nearly raw enough. same goes for unearth, as i lay dying, etc.
i'll take an overproduced record then somthing that was produced to sound "raw" thank you very much.

Prediction: tech metal is the new matalcore; in a few months, or even a year, you will all be bashing this style of music becasue it's "an overcrowded genre" or some gay statement like that.
matalcore = metalcore, by the way
this album is far inferior to their debut ep on lovelost. the production on this is way overdone and a lot of brutality is lost. also, this album just seems so mid-paced. the ep seemed a lot crazier and faster. this is what happens when a band focuses too much on having weird time signatures and shit and forgetting about writing good neckbreaking metal.
first off, this is way way way better than their ep in almost every way imaginable. i find it much more tech and crazy overall as well as dynamic and catchy and the production is f*cking amazing. and to whatever gay said this: Prediction: tech metal is the new matalcore; in a few months, or even a year, you will all be bashing this style of music becasue it's "an overcrowded genre" or some gay statement like that. retards already say that all the time and have been for the last 2 years.
First Norma Jean/The Chariot, now Into the Moat. I don't think anyone at lambgoat actually knows what Sean Ingram sounds like. As far as the review, I agree with a friend of mine's statement "everything they are, he said they weren't...and everything they aren't, he said they were"
you can always expect say10 the tech whore to go on some self-indulgent rant about how people who dislike tech ''don't get it'' and ''don't understand music'' shut the f*ck up. *listens to hellhammer*
am i the only one that sees that this band sounds EXACTLY like old dillinger. Definitley more of a rip off than any other band ive heard
I get it; it's not a damned puzzle. I didn't say I didn't like it either. I like the majority of these bands. But if you don't believe that this is going to get out of hand real soon though, open your eyes. Metal Blade signs Into the Moat, the Red Chord, then picks up the entire Black Market distribution, so in a sense they sign FASSW, Psyopus, Foundeadhanging, Ed gein, etc. etc. Ion dissonance (whom are the best of the bunch, in my opinion) sign to Abacus and will deservedly get better distribu
what the f*ck is up with "overdone production?" The equipment records too well? The placement of all mics is too right? It doesn't sound enough like a cassette you left on your dashboard in houston for 12 hours? Shut the f*ck up you trendy ass fruits and stop jumping on the "hardcore" bandwagon.
Seems like tech is becoming as common nowadays as throwback. Still, like the latter style, it makes for good listening. Good Stuff.
This cd is the most intense songs i have ever heard. more crazy then as i lay dying and they are pretty crazy. you should buy this and donnie darko
The band is tight. The songwriting (IMO) is mediocre. Production could be better, but for a band at this level its pretty solid. This 'tech' angle is getting more played out by the day. All the people here trying to defend the validity of tech metal through the argument that its possible that some people just don't "understand" it, really need to get their head checked. Let me tell ya something, it doesn't make you a genius if you can figure out how to count out 2-3 sections of different
^^^^ Most intelligent opinion of tech metal I have heard.
dudes, just shut the f*ck up if you can't say anything nice. it's all about respect. love it or hate it. this record is good by the way
Into the moat has been my favorite band for a while. it took a couple of listens to the first album to really appreciate it but now i love it. along with the review i pick up more and more every time i listen to it. deffinatly an album to get, you will listen to it over and over.
These guys are one of the best younger bands out there... and having met them, they're pretty cool guys too. Just because their newer album had a little more money put into it for sound quality doesn't make them a bad band or a sell out... If you're gonna whine about it, go see them live if you want raw.
