If I were to praise this album for all its greatness, I wouldn't be saying anything that hasn't already been said. So be it. This album is lyrically and musically extraordinary. Combining touches from a number of different genres and add smart lyrics and passionate vocals, this album is a true classic in the metalcore and hardcore genres. An endlessly influential landmark.
Ah Integrity's Those Who Fear Tommorrow. What's there to say that hasn't been said before? To put it simply though, this is possibly the first and, unarguably, one of the greatest examples of metalcore ever. Dwid's vocals display the most incredible range and power of his entire career, sounding like he actually believes what he preaches. The Melnick brothers' guitar work is equally impressive as is the drumming and the basslines. While it may be too long, the album is the closest thing there will ever be to a hardcore version of Slayer's Reign In Blood. While this maybe a controversial fact, this isn't; this is an album that encompasses all forms of metalcore from brooding to blood-boiling, melodic to dissonant and it lays a template of how all forms of metalcore should be played; with passion, heaviness, originality, sincerity but most of all, sheer power.
Integrity create one of the most influential albums of the last two decades on their debut album the politically charged, Those Who Fear Tomorrow. To say the least this is one of the first albums to nail down the metalcore sound. Among hardcore shouts and incredible dark breakdowns come Iron Maiden esque melodies and fast as fuck Slayer riffs and solos. This combination creates a memorably catchy album which is also filled to the brim with hardcore level energy. This is one of the first instances of this happening and in my opinion still remains as one of the best. Best Songs: Micha, Descent Into Darkness, and March of the Damned.
