maybe the other songs on the new album is different from that one?
Did you listen to the song "Bemoan the Martyr" at all? It added a lot of elements that would indicate a band trying to gain more commercial appeal: the rather cliche spoken word sample, the metalcore vocals and guitarwork, the addition of very commercialized clean vocals... It all screamed as a push for accessibility to me. But I realize that is just one song.

Honestly though, I just think the biggest thing against the band is loss of members. Their songwriting abilities don't seem anyway near what they used to be.
