I will confess I do fall under that particular trap with certain bands, as some tend to succumb to weaknesses or trappings more than others. and that is a great idea about any other band.
However, I can for certain say, that if this was the new High on Fire or Van Halen album, I would still be fucking pissed. Probably even moreso than usual.
