Generally not a big fan of the symphonic stuff, but something is different about this band. Everything about this album especially the raw emotion and brutality that is showcased throughout make it pretty enjoyable. The vocalist is definitely one of the more talented ones I've heard recently in a newer band. Good album from a good band who seems to have the potential to add some unexpected flavor to the genre.

Interesting debut with some really enjoyable moments but the symphonic arrangements seem a little out of place. They need to simplify the writing process on their sophomore release.

This is really solid for deathcore. The only real problems with the album are the breakdowns and the chord transitions. Most of the time the same intervals are used and it gets grating when you're hoping to hear a different song when the next one comes around.

take out the occasionally interesting symphonics and slightly above average deathcore vocalist and what do you have here? just another bland metalcore/deathcore band.

This is really an enjoyable listen. Unfortunately, they really like to repeat the good and bad ideas so much. If this album didn't waste time with repetition, it would've been a fantastic listen.

Props to these guys for really trying to make symphonic deathcore a genre, but it just doesn't work well enough here to hold up for the entire 45+ minutes that it lasts. There are interesting elements, but they never converge smoothly.

In a year when Australia has dominated the underground metal scene, one band stands above all. Make Them Suffer has shined brighter than any other band from "down-under" this year. The absolute best use of symphonic elements this year. Actually, not just this year, "Neverbloom" is the greatest use of symphonic elements I have EVER heard in an album. Usually, when there is a piano or keyboards on an album it is just used as another sound to accompany the rest of the instruments. The symphonies on this album actually dictate the music around it. The symphonies fit with the lyrical content, blending in with the album's concept of a past girlfriend. The vocalist has all the necessities of great range, showcasing his highs, mids, and lows on every song. The title track has got to be a contender for song of the year. It is just an unbelievable epic that incorporates the only clean vocals on the album. These guys need to be signed by an American label because they have a shot at becoming the next Parkway Drive, as in a Australian band having massive success in the US.

A bit of a bloated deathcore release and overall gets a little boring towards the end, but stands out among the deathcore crowd and shows not all modern deathcore bands are the worst thing ever.

One of the best albums ever recorded ,this combines beauty with brutality in ways that i have never heard before. Such an incredible release.

Unique deathcore experience with the symphonic keyboarding - excellent album.

Very mature and focused sound. It is the mixture between sheer brutality and melody that
makes Neverbloom worthwhile for any listener. If you like none of those, Nevermind.
Repetition and linearity are drawbacks nonetheless. Still, a good amount of patience and it
all comes together in a certain way.

well worth the wait. Make them suffer is the Fleshgod Apocalypse of deathcore. the production on lord of woe was way better in my opinion, the piano is given less importance than the guitars in some parts.

great debut LP. The guitars and drums can kinda sound alike throughout the album, but the vocals are solid, and the keyboard/symphonic elements are well used. Only way I can see them getting better is if they pull a JFAC and drop the -core stuff.

not sure where i am on this yet. they use the symphonic elements a lot better than most other bands and the vocalist is really solid, but the guitars, bass and drumming all sound so similar throughout the entire album

Make Them Suffer's debut album is definitely a good one. Too bad all of the 10 tracks use the same tricks again and again. There's a lot of blast beats, epic piano and breakdowns. It sounds great but it gets very tiring to listen to for a full album. EP was better, and shorter so it was not as boring, and I hope MTS tries to make their music more interesting in the future instead of filling the album with constant symphonic brutality.
