An awesome debut metalcore release. The drums are amazingly awesome, with the double bass and how fast he can actually drum on the snares. The guitars are great with sweet solos and riffs. The vocals are kind of generic for metalcore. The thing that stands out to me is the use of clean vocals. It's only used in 3 songs. (The Chosen One, I'm Not Afraid Of Tomorrow, and Restless In The Tides) I would like it if they tried to do more cleans on their next album. But this album is a great start and it does smack you right across the face, on many occasions.
As far as metalcore goes, the album was very technical. It featured a lot of thrash and melo-death undertones. Metalcore fans should love it. Anyone else might wanna pick it up for a listen if they can get over the breakdowns.
