Very impressive... quite probably their most heavy & most technical record yet. It's fast paced and agressive while always keeping the melody. It relates to the early years of 'Seven Ways To Scream Your Name' EP or even 'Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation'.
The new drummer Pat Lundy (former 'Rise To Remain') along with bassist Richard deliver some of the best work the band has ever made, and in adition with guitarrists FFAF deliver the most powerful breakdowns in years.
The huge melodic chorus that are a constant on every Funeral For A Friend album are present, being ''Nails'', ''Spine'' and ''Best Friends And Hospital Beds'' the most representative.
Sounds like a very lively record which will certainly be very welcomed by the audience at a live show.

Heavy, agressive, melodic, technical, and the heart and soul of the band remains. Very good indeed

Just sat through my first play through of the new album. It's very much a back-to-basics approach.
Compared with their last offering Welcome Home Armageddon, Conduit is very much a push towards punchy, high octane songs like Broken Foundation. You can still hear the well-honed melodies that permeate through the majority of the band's work (listen to Elements and Best Friends). But you can hear a large push towards early FFAF, songs like The Art Of American Football spring to mind.
Be prepared to be grabbed by the scruff of the neck and dragged through this at pace. You can feel the band's enthusiasm growing with every song, right up to the fantastic High Castles.

In short;
It's raw, it's energetic, it's refreshing and it's very very good.

Don't get me wrong, the tracks aren't too bad. It's definitely a more raw sounding album with little to no harmonies squeezed in. These songs would go great live and mixed with old classics but falls so short as an album in itself.

The entire album is barely 30minutes and full of punchy, boring 2 minute tracks.

I'm not saying don't buy it, just don't pay a lot of money for 'half' an album.

When I first listened to the album, I wasn't sure about it and I thought it was a little bit short and lacking the screaming of Ryan on drums. I now feel the opposite way though. I like the fact that it's short. It somehow gives each song more energy and you just power through it and shout your way through the tracks with Matt. It's very different from their last album and probably closer to a more mature Seven Ways to Scream Your Name.

I saw them live the other day in York and the new songs are brilliant live, my favourite being The Distance. Gave myself a sore throat singing along though! Definitely the best FFAF gig I've been to for a while and I personally can't stop listening to the album.

I had high hopes for Conduit after 2011's Welcome Home Armageddon, which suggested that FFAF were back to their best. It was packed full of awesome riffs and catchy melodies and highlighted some of the bands heaviest and most tuneful songs.

Unfortunately Conduit falls short of expectations. There's plenty of aggression present in all of the songs which will no doubt please many. These 11 songs are probably the closest in sound to Funeral's earliest work, but that isn't necessarily a positive.

The album opens with 'Spine', which is fast paced and features some semi-screamed vocals from Matt. It has promise but is let down by a lack of melody and also feels short lived. In many ways it's a perfect snapshot of the entire album.

The following song, 'Conduit', is a little heavier and much more frustrating. This song could have been excellent if it had a chorus with a killer hook; the type we know FFAF can pull off. You're left waiting and waiting for that sing-along hook that never comes.

Thankfully things pick up, albeit briefly, from this point. 'The Distance' wouldn't feel out of place on Welcome Home Armageddon and provides the chorus that the opening two tracks were lacking. 'Best Friends and Hospital Beds' continues in the same vein with an aggressive verse and melodic chorus. Completing a trio of outstanding tracks, 'Nails' shows a bit more variation. The aggression is still there but the pace is a little slower and the vocals a little bit cleaner.

At this point the album seems promising but unfortunately the next three tracks fall flat. 'Death Comes to Us All' reverts to the formula of the first two tracks and is no more successful. Then comes 'Travelled', which is arguably the lowest point of the album.

A must have for any fan of FFAF. Back to their best!
Although the songs are rather short and the album is only 30 minutes, it just means that the album plays on repeat more often, which means more FFAF.

This will no doubt be sacrilege but 'Casually Dressed..' sat on my shelf for years without so much as a dusting off. I appreciated the scene at the time but just didn't get this band for some reason.

Ten-ish years later I thought, these guys are still going, there must be something to them and with the help of a Classic Rock mag review bought 'Welcome Home Armageddon.' Excellent album and grown on me over the last couple of years so Conduit was a no brainer.

What a cracking album. Short, sweet, no-nonsense and with a real punk feel to it. The melody is still there but it doesn't overbear the raw and punky vibe. The whole album has the feel of a debut, it's fresh, enthusiastic, pacey, and does not sound like a band hindered by expectations.

As a result 'Casually Dressed....' has been dusted and the back catalogue bought. If you are not sure where to start with your FFAF journey, start here and work back. It's one of the best mid career revivers I've ever heard.
