Reviews:

For the follow up to the their critically acclaimed 2016 release, Stage Four, TOUCH… AMOR… have opted to get out of their comfort zone and work with a new producer, the famously demanding Ross Robinson (Slipknot, Korn, At the Drive-In). Both Robinson and TOUCH… AMOR… are known for their trademark intensity. ďI believe there was an unspoken learning curve between Rossís methods and the understanding that Iíve poured myself into the words and mean every one of them,Ē vocalist Jeremy Bolm says.

Robinson agreed to a rare one-song ďtest recordingĒ last summer, which re- sulted in the song ďDeflector,Ē released last fall. In the end, ďDeflectorĒ proved the producer/band combo was undoubtedly the right fit. Robinson made Bolm read out all of his confessional lyrics to his bandmates to make sure they un- derstood their emotional content. Making Bolm read those lyrics turned out to be what helped make their emotions palpable in the final recording. With its ruminations on the draining human connection (ďIíll test the water/I wonít dive right in/Thatís too personal/Iím too delicateĒ), Lamentís first helping is a sharp intro to the albumís themes.

Lament is their masterstroke. Its longer, structured songs soar with a fe- rocious but delicate musicality and powerful, gut-wrenching storytelling that smashes previous heights. Yet as much as the band has grown and matured via everything theyíve endured, itís perhaps equally impressive how theyíve managed to stay true to their core...
