Promising single. Omer is on a roll.

Also, I'm into the cover. I'll take a simple photo over the garish designs on Gorilla or Cell Phone any day

But once again, those vocals may potentially ruin the music underneath.


Lmao


Sworn Virgins had hard to swallow vocals. I wouldn't play it for my mom.

But you gotta let go of it, man. All these albums with screaming vocals sound *great*

In your opinion, not mine. You seem to love everything he releases, and defend every album in this series like a gun is pointed at your head. Especially when somebody says he sounds out of tune.

The reason why ive grown to love the vocals on SV, is because I can tell there's layers even if he DIDNT say "I went back and did more overdubs, more work on the vocals" for Sworn Virgins. Which he did. I can tell there's work and purpose other than just screaming his head off in one take just to get it done. Plus I love the effects on the vocals. Some of these records with screaming is just not my cup of tea. I don't listen to music with vocals like that outside of Omars music, so that's why it doesn't click with me.

The beginning of the verse reminds me of this, loosely similar melody

Being in tune is a fact.

YOUR opinion is what's based on errors.

Don't shit talk if you can't stand the mirror.

You read like a laundry list of backtracked excuses.

I hate on plenty of Omar's shittier work (his movies suuuuck for example but so does my first one), so go suck an egg, unwitting tool of the corporate stranglehold.

How about his music? Supreme Dick rider.

Out of tune is fact? There ya go. When he's out of tune, he's out of tune then, but you seem to think that he's always singing in tune.

the sworn virgins vocals work in their context, same with nom de guerre, GPC, USM, and un corazone de nadie. whether you like the context or not is the real question

Sometimes it works, sometimes it's cringe worthy to the ears. I don't know why I'm even answering a question like this.

Armando would get defensive and say it's so good and in tune and perfect even if every release had Killing Tingled vocals. Probably.

vocals on that album are pretty good, some of the more melodic of all Ipepac records, and really only seemingly weird at one point at Cassando .

I'm really digging this single.  I don't want to get my hopes up too much yet but kind of sounds like this could be a "sequel" to Sworn Virgins (which is still one of my favorite albums of the Ipecac series).

Killing Tingled has amazing vocals, you're such a fucking poser.

 

PS based on one listen of the single, this is the pink floyd spy music album - I'm callin it
