Highly doubt this is the future of MDM.
Orbit Culture‘s new album still includes interesting ideas, synths, a modern atmosphere that falls under an industrial-groove blended umbrella. Unfortunately not all the grooves are interesting making Descent just too generic.
The main problem is however the production, or more concretely the mastering. Everything sounds completely bloated from beginning to end, taking away the magic from the clean and sharp production and sending every performance against the brick wall.
Other than maybe throwing some decent tracks (“Vultures of North”, “Alienated”) into your metalcore playlist for an eventual listen, pass on this one.
