But it is true to a degree. Otherwise Death Chorus sounds like another generic pop-punk record shilled to death on this website by the generic pop-punk flavor of the week.
Point is, with cleaner vocals, they have proven they can do a hell of a lot better than this. Which is more disappointing than his new shot voice.
im working my way through the record now. got like 3 songs left. but i'd say the first four are definitely on par with older material in terms of aggression and volume. maybe it's not as good as Clash Battle, but it doesn't strike me as being a disaster in any way.
