People clearly don't understand what a review is. Choosing 5 stars before the album releases and saying things like "shut up and take my money". LOL. There are 2 songs (expiate & unify) that stand out to me, nothing impressive but they at least offer something interesting. Every other song has generic riffs with nothing to get excited about. It's background noise. The vocals are not good enough to carry the whole band and it seems that's what the sole objective is here. There used to be a nice contrast with low guitar tones and high vocals and it worked great on Augment. The band has changed so much I don't believe it makes sense to keep the band name. If you want to change that much by all means do it, but start a new band. If the name ERRA wasn't on this release I would have never found this as it's not something I would be interested in listening to. And the benefit to the band would be one less 2 star review.

Great...BUT KILL THE SCREAMO VOICE, DUDE
These guys are skilled. Plain and simple. Good song composition, chorus, hooks etc....but the fuckilng screamo, jesus almighty smh. In bits guys, in bits. Otherwise, ok. Without the screaming, pretty rad
Another solid effort, while it’s nothing really out of the box, they stayed true to their sound and put out a decent record
Change the band name...
At this point, I think they should just change their name from Erra to something more suiting. It’s obvious that with 3 of the original members not being in the band that the sound is going to be completely different; just like if you change 3 main ingredients to a chocolate chip cookie it’s not going to taste the same. For the sake of music, Erra, please make another album with Alan, Garrison, and Adam.
Finally on board with Erra
I’ve always known about this band and listened to their stuff but never bought an album. For some reason it just didn’t grab me. All that changed with Neon. This sounds like if Cove Reber (ex-Saosin for those who don’t know) was doing clean vocals for a metal band, and it sounds great.

I love the song breach
This song has so many riffs and the introduction where you just seem to be in another world. The guitar riffs are music to my ears has me head banging.
Epic buy this now!
