Review Summary: One of the greatest "Metallic Hardcore" records.

5 of 7 thought this review was well written

Hatebreed is a band that is for the most part forget in today's hardcore scene. But that shows in the music they release now. They sound nothing like this. This album is sincere, hardcore, heavy, fast and unrelenting. Its 26 minutes long, it punches you in your face and BOOM your down on the ground in a instant. Knocked out cold.

The sound on the record is massive, when the guitars chug the world moves. When the slayer styled riffs come in there fast and brutal, in fact the riffs on here make Reign in Blood seem like a flower garden. The vocals are menacing and throated, Jamey is truly an angry man on the record. With lyrics that are about betrayal, mainly aimed at religion like in Empty Promises and other things like being lied to and living in a extirpated world. To me this is what this band doesnt have anymore. I feel like the sincerity is gone in this bands music, they've gone stale. But i digress. The bass and drums add to the heaviness. With the bass being audible and the drums for the most play hardcore punk style beats, but Jamie has the skills to really play great double bass parts. Specially during chugging moments.

This is a classic in the genre. For all sorts of reasons. The mix of metal and hardcore is innovative, the emotion is amazing. Its defining and original. Anyone who likes Hardcore/Metalcore... this is a must listen.

oh god, there is no need for fights.

also yeah i do. no offence but i know more about metalcore and hardcore than you do. but i'm calling this metallic hardcore cause this is what the band calls them selves. Hatebreed never considered them selves metal. there hardcore with a metallic side.

"metallic hardcore" is a term used by the media to refer to early metalcore bands. There.

The guy who starts every silly argument doesn't want any more silly arguments because he always ends up looking dumber than dogshit.

And trust me, Flutter knows a helluva lot more about metalcore/hardcore than you do. He's proven it.
