The Fall of Troy OK
The Fall of Troy comes clawing and shredding back to life like the depraved animal they were on their first
few releases. Picking up right where Doppelgänger left off with some of the melodic sensibilities of
Manipulator thrown in, OK is an awesomely fun reunion album from one of post-hardcore's best. Production
and vocals are just fine, by the way. In fact, Erak's shiny new delivery is one of the most entertaining aspects
of the release.

Asking Alexandria The Black
Miles ahead of anything since Stand Up and Scream, though that isn't saying too much. Instead of sounding
like a bad hair/glam rock band with a dull metallic edge, AA goes back to a much more metalcore oriented
sound. It's basically what I imagine Bring Me The Horizon would sound like these days if they still used
screaming in their music. Album's a fun romp through mid-2000s scenecore and a good time if you don't
expect much out of it.

Holy fucking shit. This makes the fact that trophy scars isn?t a thing anymore bearable.

Explosions in the Sky The Wilderness
Otherworldly and ethereal, carrying hits of dream pop, shoegaze, and some heavier moments than Explosions
ever really explored, The Wilderness sees the band finally branching out into some new and refreshing territory.
The production itself is unique and fits the atmosphere of the album perfectly. It loses momentum in some places,
but the whole affair is a much more subtle and nuanced one than the band's past works. It's nice to hear
something different out of EITS after all this time. Disintegration Anxiety and Infinite Orbit are some jams.
