My birthday btw.
Best present ever!
This sounds awesome! I already bought it and have watched the lyric video twice.
The electric sound mixed with the good 'ol head banging metal really works for me. My favorite part is the lead-in chorus where John says:
"shot like a rocket up into the sky..."
It almost sounds like the words are like cards being shuffled, and as they slap on top of each other.
And man, that guitar is perfection. ️️️️️️️️️️️️
So Suicide Squad is coming out, Sabaton and Skillet are releasing new albums, and I'm going to college.
August will be the month I go into debt.
Not sure how I feel about Stars yet. I need to listen to it a couple more times. It sounds very contemporary worship-y, which can be either good or bad.
It kind of reminds me of the really old Skillet stuff.
Like a bridge between new skillet and the old.
Same here. I don't know if I like it... I just have never connected with praise and worship music. They've always just felt like hymns to me.I do NOT like either of them.
I'm the opposite. I like modern a lot more then most hymns.

Stars has definitely been growing on me. I really can't wait to see what the next songs off the album will be like.
So, what does everyone think of the new album? I've only listened to it a couple times, but I've already got a few favourites. It's so weird listening to Skillet songs that I don't know by heart.
Listen to the full album here:
Funny, I actually heard Skillet quite a while ago. I liked a good amount of their songs, like "not gonna die" and "fire and fury", but after researching them I discovered that they were a Christian band, and I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I really haven't been able to listen to their music the same way again...
I'm fairly "meh" about the new albulm. I really like "Invincible", and I think "Back From the Dead"'s pretty good, but none of the other songs have really stuck out to me.
After having listented to most of the songs on Unleashed a dozen times, I can safely say that I love it. Watching For Comets and Out Of Hell in particular have been getting stuck in my head lately.
Ah yes, Watching for Comets is a pure masterpiece. It might be my favorite Skillet song ever.
Not a huge fan, tbh. The whole album feels rather leashed, ironically. I don't think it lived up to its potential. I do like I Want to Live and Resistance though, and Jen's singing is phenomenal. Also doesn't anyone else find it odd that the lead single for Unleashed is called Feel Invincible and Skillet also has an album/song called Invincible...?
Indeed. Though I do feel like their's a bit less of it on this album, which I miss. I also really miss the violins/cellos (Comatose's intro FTW!).
I noticed that too. Funny coincidence.
Listening to the album again, I think "Lions", "Undefeated" and "The Resistance" are pretty good.
Have you guys seen the Unleashed mash-up? I love it.
Adele has the voice of an angel? Phfffffft. No way.
Jen Ledger is the one with the voice of an angel.
I'm personally slightly let down by the album, Probably because I was hoping for all the songs to be great. All of the tracks are good, but not all are great. But that's just my two cents.
