Whitechapel Our Endless War
Somehow, we all knew what the lyrical content was going to consist of in this album, but the way Phil Bozeman delivers them is enough to ignore the bits of repetitiveness. The album does at times seem like a carbon copy of their last album. That being said, I see nothing wrong with this form of consistency, even though some may call it "boring" or "unoriginal". Honestly, if it ain't broke don't fix it, and Whitechapel definitely is not broken.
Killswitch Engage Disarm the Descent
All in due time indeed. The return of original frontman Jesse Leach was well worth the wait. Though Howard Jones may be one of the best if not the best vocalist in metal, it was evident that the band was beginning to sink into a creative slump on their last album. The return of Jesse brings a sort of revitalization back to a time when these guys were considered one of the best around. It would be impossible to match the magnitude of AOJB, but Killswitch does provide a fun and sort of nostalgic record with plenty of meaty riffs and catchy choruses capped off by the excellent production of Adam D.
Erra Augment
Becoming The Archetype I Am
Never really have followed these guys, but I really enjoyed listening to this album for the most part. The first three songs, especially "The Eyes of the Storm", are the best tracks on the album, but they probably should have spread them out better because the last half of the album doesn't pack as big of a punch. Not really a fan of the instrumental on here either. It just didn't seem like a good segway between tracks and was just kind of random. Regardless, this was a good album.
Asking Alexandria From Death to Destiny
Very disappointed just like I knew I would be knowing Danny's voice would not be the same. In my opinion, it was his vocals that made the last album better than average. "From Death To Destiny" just felt very uninspired, as if the band said well it's time to make another album and just made it for the sake of having one. Nothing special really stands out to me on this album, but I can't bring myself to give them any lower of a rating. I've always had a soft spot for theses guys, but they're really starting to push it. Thank God for the guest vocals of Howard Jones that save the album toward the end, and keep it from being a total loss. Even t
Dweller The Reality Vector
Many bands fall flat on their face because they think the word "deathcore" simply means they don't need originality and can just mindlessly chug away. However, Dweller is one of just a few bands that stand out in this relatively crowded genre of copycats. From the eerie opening ambiance of "Visions" all the way to the superbly executed, catchy, and very memorable riff of "An Eternity Defined", Dweller manages to keep the listener occupied with plenty of ferocious blastbeats, rhythm changes, solid guitar work, and powerful vocals. A must listen for fans of ANY type of heavy metal.
The Color Morale Know Hope
I honestly had never heard of The Color Morale before I bought this cd. I was looking for something new and decided to give it a shot. I'm so glad i did. The album is very inspirational and offers EXCELLENT vocals in every way, shape, and form. Though it does contain some less than average chugging and riffs, the album also has some of the catchiest hooks you will ever hear (Smoke and Mirrors). Don't be fooled by the label. This band DOES NOT belong on Rise Records. Looking for a new metalcore album? You found it.
