The newly released album "Conviction", released 19th of June. This album is the second album which Crimson Armada has released and including their new drummer and guitarist (from Sleeping With Sirens), long await from their state of hiatus. The new album was quite exciting for me as I recently heard their previous album and really enjoyed it. Their previous album was labelled "deathcore" which I enjoyed with the interesting and technical writing of the guitarist, but news of the changed guitarist worried me, and I was right. As I would of thought as I know the writing style of their new guitarist, I knew that the technical writing which I loved will be gone with a more melodic than technical style. The new album now uses clean vocals and a far different sound from their new recordings. A lot has changed since the band was in hiatus, but that will be the listeners choice to think if it was a good choice or not. Personally the change in style was some what disappointing, but listening to their song "Call To Arms" before the hearing anything of theirs, I actually thought it sounded really neat, so I believe this is just me being all "I don't like change". So the recording quality has improved, the band is touring again, pre-order bundles were available and the style has changed. One thing that hasn't changed were the references to god in the writing in the lyrics, which I still quite like.
The Crimson Armada - Conviction 7.5/10
