Are they doing physical CDs, too?  I'd buy the download if that is all they offer, but I'd like to have the CD.

Right now, there are no CDs.  They hope to have those and vinyl in the near future.

Since it has a classic metal vibe, I went ahead and bought the downloads.  That's what I do.

Do they have a Facebook page?  How are you following them?  "Philadelphia" is a hard band to search for.

Ordered, downloaded, listening now. It's a natural follow-up to Search and Destroy. This guy's voice hasn't changed at all. I want to get to know the album before I offer any opinions.

One note - 3rd song - "I'm Not Listening" - the word a** makes an appearance. I have no idea what that's about.

A lot of people use it and don't think anything about it.  What would be different in saying, "I'm gonna kick your @$$!" or, "I'm gonna kick your butt!"?  For a lot of Christians, this has lost the cultural label of a swear word.  I don't even feel like it should be offensive as we have so many words to describe our behinds.

I am currently going through my first listen of this album.  The music, I must say, is top notch.  The mix is really clear.  The bass and drums are kickin' without overpowering the guitars.  The vocals could stand to be a hair higher in the mix, but you can understand the vocalist clearly.  The only thing missing is the "big hook".  Just adding some BGVs to the choruses (sometimes only a single word like on "Prophecy") would have made it grab you a bit more.  However, I think that a couple of repeated listens will probably turn this into more of a favorite for me just because of the style.

I find the title track to be lacking. The problem is that the live version of that song that was on the re-release of Search and Destroy was so heavy. The new one sounds like Warlord-lite. I wish they'd kept that heavy metal edge on that song like the live recording.

The new album is decent overall. I don't love it, but I do like it.

Listened to it on YouTube. Sounds pretty good. I say there needs to be a Philadelphia boxset with all albums remastered Smile
