    I must say, I haven’t dug these tunes right off the bat, nor did I dig much of anything on the last one, which is a bummer, because the two albums prior I fucking LOVE. I’ll revisit to see if I change my mind. I’ve been in a really odd mood musically lately and have been finding most things to not sit well immediately, I think my brain is just kind of mushed out.

    I’ll definitely go see these guys anytime they’re around. Killer showmanship all the way around and it’s pretty cool seeing the success they’ve busted ass for.

    That second track kinda reminded me of Bombus.

    I bought an Avatar album quite a while back, and I have such mixed feelings about them as a band. When they do the melodic death metal thing, they tend to do it pretty well. But when they're doing this almost circus music metal, it just feels... mediocre or stupid. I do love a lot of avant-garde metal and progressive metal is arguably my favorite genre, but the musical / carny stuff just... I don't see the appeal. Granted, of the music videos I've seen and the album I bought, there are good parts and good songs, but... eh...

    I saw them on a festival tour, and it was very Marylin Manson spooky parts mixed with Rammstein, IMO. The music is pretty forgettable, and the stage act is... well... an act

    Truly, I have no positive things to say, here

    I dig all three I'm surprised they're getting so much resistance. The 'Avatar Country' stuff seemed like a much greater departure from 'their sound' and got a pretty warm welcome. I thought one of the big appeals of Avatar was how much their sound evolves.
