This topic has been talked and typed to death, but if the album was only 8 songs, it could have been a lot better. Cut out 3 out of these 4 ; Unit 31, Not of This God, Americon, The Human Strain ; and the album is MUCH better.
Not that it matters, but that's what I think.
08/30: Bane and tour (?)
10/15: Soilwork, Decapitated (?)
