Truth be told, this is an impressive metalcore release. Every member performs exceptionally, and Lawrence Taylor's meaningful lyrics make this a stand out amongst others of the genre. A little more vocal variety would've made it more so, however.
By building on the potential showcased on their mini-album debut and playing to their numerous strengths, While She Sleeps have crafted one of the best metal albums of 2012, featuring vastly improved, dynamic songwriting devoid of the stigmas usually associated with the metalcore genre. This band represents the best of what modern British metal and hardcore has to offer. Watch this space.
Very hard, yet melodic album -- just what you want -- the only thing that would make this album sensational was to bring in a few more solid clean vocals into the equation, not whiny ones, The Ghost Inside Get What You Give style, then this album would have a little bit more variety and it would be classic.
