As previously reported, Glassjaw just released their first new album in 15 years. I decided to jot down my first impressions after a few listens.
- I'm hearing lots of Deftones influence throughout the album. The vocal style of Chino Moreno on Around the Fur and White Pony among other things.
- If you took all the screams off Worship & Tribute, you would have Material Control. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing by any means either.
- Billy Rymer from The Dillinger Escape Plan played the drums on the record and killed it. He's a great drummer in his own right too.
