UPDATE - 2/17@10:10AM: The inevitable has of course happened - the clip has been turned into an mp3 and passed all over the net. One anonymous reader sent me a link to the clip and you can listen to it using the player above. It's also up on YouTube here. I've also seen it posted to a couple messageboards. has confirmed that the album will indeed be titled Snakes & Arrows and be released on May 1st! Better yet they have a very short but sweet (15 seconds or so, no vocals) sample of the single Far Cry. Just go to to check out the clip. Judging by the clip, the new album is indeed heavier and more powerful - very Hemispherical. :)
