    I dig it.

    Production is lacking a bit, IMO. It's like they got 85% there and either ran out of time/money to finish or decided to keep it purposefully stripped back to a degree. The kicks are sticking out like sore, shitty samples. Actually, it sounds like a real kick, just dialed a live situation rather than a record, in turn, making it sound like a sample. It's like it has nothing to do with the rest of the low end going on. The low end in general leaves a lot to be desired.

    Vocalist is good. The parts he does scream, like to modern scream, not the 80's wailing, leaves a bit to be desired but I think it's because they just kept those parts in the same vocal chain/mic. Singer doesn't flow into them smooth enough. He's a great fucking singer, though. There's a total Bruce Dickinson/Geoff Tate sound in some areas. Killer guitar work!

    I'll buy this one and would check them out live, for sure.
    Perfection is the enemy of progress.

    I am surprised everyone likes the singer. For me it sounds like he does not know how to sing and is straining his voice. Granted, I do not know shit about singing.

    What kind of funny are we talking about here? Like "hah hah" funny?

    Or "You think it's coincidental the older brother 'left' LoG and then started a new project called Firstborne (stupid name by the way), and then released an EP on the same day the band that still has the younger brother in it was releasing their shit?" funny?

    That's like, the saltiest project name ever. Might as well have gone with, "My shitty younger brother forced me out of this band and I am pissed about it".

    "Oh yeah, there's no bad blood......my new project is called firstborne by the way, we were originally going to call it something less subtle like, 'my shitty younger brother kicked me out of our band', but that was taken."

    Not into this at all. It sounds like 4 people thrown into a room and told to make songs or else. Just very little cohesion.

    However, it does pretty much demonstrate exactly how much the LoG sound was his drums.
