It looks like Chaz Bond is back with his most recent incarnation of BioGenesis (he has been through several different musicians at this point).

The title track continues with what sounds to me like a combination of heavy US power metal combined with some aggressive thrash elements.  If the whole album was in this style I might buy it.
The second track "By Design" sounds more akin to death metal (at least to my untrained ears).  Lots of growling and screaming from the leather lunged Chaz.  Where they really lose me on this track is that the music sounds "off" for some reason, like weird time signatures, or instruments not playing in time with each other...I'm at a loss for how to explain it.  But the second song is not really something I dig.

I believe this makes the band's fourth full length album (10 tracks on this one).  You can get the cd now from Retroactive/Boon's Overstock right now for $13.99 (or even get the digital download for only $8.99)

I like those songs but I hear what you're talking about, it's like the instruments aren't mixed cohesively. I'll have to hear more.

Loved the two videos I watched. The Jim Jones/Jonestown angle adds to the thrash big-time.

Sounds great, but a little too heavy for me.  I'll give it a miss, but I do love what they're doing.

This is one of those bands I could never get into.

I was wondering what you would think since I thought you really liked the first few albums.

I loved Chaz in Jacob's Dream (especially their final album with him).  I have two of the BioGenesis albums.  I like probably more than half of "The Rise, The Fall, The Rebirth" which was their second album.  I also have "A Decadence Divine" and I dig most of the music on that one, but just can't get into the growly vocals as much.

I had a couple of albums years ago by Jacob's Dream.  I kinda liked the first two but didn't listen to them at all.  When Chaz joined, it just didn't work for me and I lost interest in them.

I think he's got a very diverse voice, the music doesn't always grab me but when they're on, they're really good.

I loved The Mark Bleeds Through, but much of that was to do with either the song subjects, or that they were just plain catchy.  As a rule though, Biogenesis is a bit too heavy.  Shame really, as I'd love to own all the albums.

I didn't mind the timing or mix (that much), but the tuning is what seemed weird to me.

Oh wow, I didn't think of that.

Probably not.  Youtube-music is a subscriber service that replaced Google Music a year or so ago.  So it's likely it would only be in his account (kind of like I-tunes).
