New song called Black Honey http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2016/04/27/475764110/vikings-choice-thrice-black-honey

Just heard it earlier today. Sounds promising!
I do find it...odd'ish...that the song's about...bees. And honey.

Easily the best of the three released so far.

I love this band but I just can't get into any of the new songs... Hoping there are some electronics on the record. The newest song is probably the most promising.

Pretty good album but too many missteps and parts that don't really do enough for it to be a great album.

Hurricane is brilliant though.

So how freaking great is this new record? Absolutely loving it. Black honey is probably the only song that I can't quite warm up to.. But man the long defeat and death from above and whistleblower... Some of the best material they have ever written. So glad they're back! I've seen them live 4 times and they put on one hell of a show. If you get a chance to see them I definitely recommend it. Watched some videos of the new songs live and they sound exactly like they do on the record. Impressive .


And this one really took a few listens for me to get into.. I was kinda bummed with the first 2 songs they released but have enjoyed them much more on the record.

Definitely took awhile to get into but it was worth it. First couple of listens most of the songs kind of blended together for me and hardly any stand outs but once you give them the time holy fuck are these songs good.

I can't believe I will say this, but this is the most nu-metal Thrice album of all time.
Don't get me wrong, I really like a couple of songs, most of them have their moments but overall the instrumentals of the album are.. lazy? Mediocre?

Even while being mediocre they still serve a purpose to build nice sort-of formulaic rock songs.

Finally sitting down for this record...four songs in, and it just sounds monstrous. Digging it so far.

There's two or three songs that let it down a bit IMO. Wake Up and Stay With Me are average songs with mediocre choruses and I'm not particularly keen on Salt and Shadow either. It's a shame because the rest of it is great.

Just saw them last week. Sounded excellent. Played a lot of songs of the new album. Opened with Hurricane. Sounded HUGE!
