"Hopeless Truth"

Does it remind anyone of the earlier Arsis demo 'Close'?

I think both songs rule! It is neat to hear a familiar riff but then the rest of the new structure of the song.

Great song.

I'd have to say my favorite off the album is "The Marriage Bed."

The beginning is just nuts!

I noticed it had some riffs from Close. Sounds like they played around with it and added/changed some things though. I looooooooove Hopeless Truth.

The weakest song on the album IMHO is "...and the blind one came" which is good too.. All the others are out of this world.. Amazing album, almost perfect.

I feel that way about Lust Before the Maggots Conquest. My favorite thing about Arsis is how they may technical music so melodic, but Lust is so blindingly technical that the melody is lost a bit. I still love the song to death, but the others are so incredible that it pales in comparison.

Speaking of newly structured songs, is The Things You Said a cover? I read somewhere that it's a Depeche Mode cover but I never heard anything like that from an official source.

NNotN-ENN is an unknown quantity at this point
The Things You Said is also the title of a Depeche Mode song, but since i havent got the cd yet, i cant be sure if it actually a cover!

Has anyone heard Gory Blister's cover of Never Let Me Down (by DP again). That's a really cool song!

yes, it seems that arsis remade 'close' as hopless truth, just as they remade 'fortune's envy' as the promise of never. all 4 songs fuckin shred.

Yeah, that one along with I Speak Through Shadows are my favorites so far, but after listening to the cd for a few months other songs might become my favorites. That's the great thing about Arsis, you can listen to the cd over and over and catch something different each time, something sticks out more then the last listen, you come across a guitar riff or a killler drum fill that you hadn't found so prominent and intriguing before.

Their 2002 demo, which has all of their 2001 songs plus four more, is available over filesharing programs. If you have soulseek, that's how I found it.

My UIR stuff came today. :D
