3.5 greatThe way of the riff | May 31st 17

Masterpeace was not quite the masterpiece we expected, and with David Wayne's passing and Mike Howe's retiring from music, who would've thought they would continue on? Well they found a competent frontman in Ronny Munroe who sounds like a slightly more gruff Steve Grimmet (Grim Reaper/Onslaught). He puts on an outstanding vocal performance and differs himself enough from MC's previous frontmen to stand out and is the highlight here. The material is stronger and more consistent here if a bit frontloaded (the first half of the album is undoubtedly stronger). "Leave Them Behind" is a terrific opener with its commanding vocals and instantly ripping riffs and tempo changes, the t/t is more midtempo but is elevated by its vicious riffs and strong vocals, and "Madman's Overture" is the album highlight here. there's a few stinkers here, but Weight of The World closes on a good note with "Blood Money" and comfortably sits around a 3.5 and a 4.

Good album. Better than Masterpeace and better vocals.
