Agreed.

Right there with ya, pal. Especially after this first track. Its a new take on the usual over-6-minutes type of track that they usually put out. Im excited to see what kind of stuff he throws at us with this new album. I wish Mark would contribute to the lyric/vocal writing more in AB, could be interesting to have a whole album of co-lead vocals.

All-in-all, this fucking rules and Tremonti is back. Love it!

Thanks Timo!

Marks vocals, lyrics, and the vocal melodies are really amazing in this track. How he goes from agressive to soft so fluently :mtrocks :cloud9

I really hope that he will do some acoustic sessions this time.

Agree with that. I love the more melodic parts in particular but I'm interested to know more about the change in attitude during them. Switch in POV?

I feel like there's a change in who's speaking between the verses and the prechorus, because his pitch takes a pretty stark change between the two. That's why I'm curious to know if he's singing as different "voices" within respect to the story on this one.

Yea, the song seems like a dialogue between human and dying machine to me.

Is there a vocal glitch @2:32? As if he'd wanted to sing further but somebody stopped him from doing so?

I think it sounds pretty deliberate.
"And I will never see our love undone, yeah" doesnt seem like a glitch to me :lol

That's what I gathered from it, personally. I felt the heavy parts were from the machines perspective, while the soft parts were the human (possible the main character taking about a loved one).

Is there any large high quality versions of the artwork in the lyric videos? Like desktop-sized?

Mark finally wrote a Mastodon song, and I'm here for it. Definitely the most he's pushed himself since FORTRESS.

The first chorus could've been cut. The transition from the pre chorus to the 2nd verse would've been fine, and it would've made the song less repetitious. The pre chorus sounds like a chorus anyway, so you would've had two choruses, which both would've been repeated twice.
