Downloaded these bad boys over the course of this past week. Some rwere very welcome surprises, some just confirmed what I suspected.
|5||A Skylit Drive|
Identity On Fire
I seriously dislike this band. After "Wires," ASD dropped off my radar and
completely shed all talent, creativity, and pleasant vocals. Their EP is their only
above average CD. Jag's voice proves to be nothing more than grating,
repetitive, and classless. My low expectations were surprisingly not even met.
|4||Dance Gavin Dance|
Downtown Battle Mountain II
I have been a huge fan of DGD ever since I heard the first DMB, so it's safe to
say I naturally liked this. I'm not so much of a fan of where the band's sound as
a whole is going, but I still enjoyed it WAY more than Happiness. Some of my
favorite tracks are "Spooks," "People You Knew," and "Elder Goose." Jonny Craig
seems content on hitting lower notes now, and in my opinion doesn't seem as
passionate as the first release. Overall, still a pretty good listen.
|3||As Blood Runs Black|
Has to be some of the worst album art ever. Looks like a stupid roller coaster
I'm about to unwillingly ride. The new vocalist is a little better than the old one
in my opinion, but he definitely lacks any power behind his mids. The production
is pretty good, not surprisingly. However, none of these turn out to be any sort
of welcome addition to the band. The band is like Oceano on Contagion: boring,
bland, and uninteresting. This was fun for the first few listens, I guess.
Watching From A Distance
Pretty new to doom metal, not going to lie. This album gets A TON of praise on
here so I figured it was something to check out. My favorite tracks are
"Watching From A Distance" and "Bridges." I don't like the production very
much, the songs kind of all sound the same, but it's a pretty emotional and
surprisingly intense listen for being so restrained. I like the guy's voice too.
|1||Salt The Wound|
Kill The Crown
I would say this is miles ahead of Carnal Repercussions and Ares. I have been a
fan of STW ever since they just had a 3 song demo that included "The
Conformist," "Peas And Carrots," and "I Swear The Visine Is For My Allergies."
Consisting of only Jake Scott and Kevin Schaefer, KTC is a shift away from the
bland deathcore genre and definitely explores a more melodic and structured
side to STW's music. Recommended tracks are definitely "Consequence," "Why
Don't You Have A Seat," and "Early Mornings And Late Nights." The production
is stellar, Kevin's scream is a lot better, and the riffing is just overall more
|When I saw this on the home page I thought it said "Frickin Wedding"|
I was about to say that if I ever get married, you're all invited to my wedding.

|No it doesn't have to be Christian. But I won't listen to it if it's blatantly opposed to Christianity...|
|Well I guess Fleshgod Apocalypse is out of the question then. |
|Get 2 off this list right now before you contaminate it.|
