first new band ive been excited about in a while. they seem like cool dudes and the music is definitely great for a debut record. it always takes a while for a band to really get their chemistry together. i hope they experiment a little more in their next record, but this is definitely good. the clean vocalist is incredible, screams could have a little more range but are pretty solid.

Do need to give this a listen. Very good impression from the first few songs

Review was good. I gotta say I really enjoyed this CD. Not so much heavy as it is dark and eerie. Some of the songs do run together a bit even seem kinda rushed, but as someone already said the more you listen to something the more you can identify tracks apart from one another. Will be listening to this more.

this. i listened to it last night, and while it was enjoyable and i'll probably listen again, i don't foresee it becoming one of my favorites.

|Simply put, Decoder in no way, shape, or form sounds like a debut record. |

Up all night, and down all day
After being stoked to listen I can't believe I still haven't listened to this.

I thought the entire album was fantastic. Reminiscent of parts I loved from as cities burn and oceana (both from birth eater and clean head)

Burns told me personally that some of the biggest influences on his writing were as cities burn and thrice. You can tell the influence, but to call it a thrice ripoff....far from it.

I like it so far, but I'm not blown away. Need to give it more listens.
