Eh not bad but is this the same band that wrote Vengeance Rising, Crown of the Kings, Against the Gods, and Kolossus?

Of course it's the same band, and that was KILLER. It shows they're willing to acquiesce to what the vast majority of people are looking for in metal music.

Excellent performance, great song!

Isn't that the definition of selling out? Changing your sound because most people want to hear that certain sound.

I like it but it sounds more hook/chorus based then previous albums. The chorus gives me a sing along vibe. By themselves theirs nothing wrong with those qualities but the motives for including those elements make me question their integrity as artists.

I'd have to agree with cruor... While I have no problem with the song. I think I might if the whole album sounds like this and lacks the elements that have me call KoK extreme metal. I would certainly be annoyed if their reasons for doing so was to appeal to the masses.
