Dayshell Nexus
A monstrous step-up from the band's previous record, "Nexus" proves that Dayshell is a force to be reckoned with - as their sophomore album continues the ongoing progression of hard-hitting, grooving rock music. The only awkward thing about listening to this album is that the first 6(?) tracks all begin with a synthesized/crescendo intro, followed by the introductory verse. It's unfortunate, but a minor setback to an otherwise great catalog of tracks. "Car Sick" is a perfect intro to the album, followed by "A New Man" - delivering what would be weird lyrics ('I'm as cool as you') in a stylish fashion. Other strong tracks are "Low Light", "The

Dayshell Dayshell
A slightly above average for the debut record from Dayshell, the somewhat passion-project of ex-Of Mice & Men guitarist/vocalist Shayley Bourget. There's a lot to like in the record - such as the varying tracks, as well as the multiple-genre songwriting influences. However, none of these songs really sick with the listener (at least, not with me), save for "Not Coming In", "Share With Me", and "Avatar". This ultimately feels like a blueprint for better things to come...and if that's the case, then great things are in store.

One Morning Left Metalcore Superstars
This is a band that dabbles in the absurdity, providing an incredibly fun listen beginning to end. At its core, "Metalcore Superstars" isn't so much of a 'Metalcore' record, as the post-hardcore/electronic ("crabcore") style is clearly present throughout the album - yet its used tastefully and effectively in songs such as "Fast and Furious 666" and "Heavy Metal Finland". Adding to it, there's some REALLY catchy and well-written songs on here; "The Recipe", "Kings and Queens", and "Devil's Nest" won't leave your head after a listen. The most infamous track, "You're Dead! Let's Disco!" essentially is a pure representation of what this band is -

Sum 41 13 Voices
With the return of guitarist/songwriter Dave Baksh, "13 Voices" gives the listener essentially exactly what was promised by such return: the 'poppy' Sum 41 album melded with interesting guitar riffs and solos. The initial 3 tracks are a tremendous start, followed by 2 mediocre tracks, followed by the best track on the album (the title track), and followed by more mediocrity. Just about half of this album is rewarding in the sense that it's a sound Sum 41 has been missing for a while, and half of the album feels like there's still some things the band has to figure out. Overall though, "13 Voices" is the best album the band has put out since "

A Day to Remember Bad Vibrations
While not the total disaster that this album initially appeared to be (thanks to the misleading early track releases), "Bad Vibrations" is a step backwards for A Day to Remember in comparison to "Common Courtesy". There's no denial that the first half of the record is leagues better than the second half, thanks to good tracks such as "Paranoia", "Naivety", and "Bullfight" - and ESPECIALLY the album's stand-out winner "Reassemble". The second half of the album is ultimately enjoyable as well...save for the track "We Got This", which might be one of the worst songs put out in 2016. In conclusion, "Bad Vibrations" ultimately succeeds in giving

Famous Last Words The Incubus
Famous Last Words backtrack in their latest release, "The Incubus". From the get-go, this feels like a tonally/musically sequel to "Two-Faced Charade", however, the material here just isn't as interesting. Perhaps that's due to the strange song composition, where the vocals take up arguably 90% of the record - where the rest of the band hardly gets to shine in any instrumental parts. Compare that to their previous record, "Council of the Dead", that had a real blend of instrumentation, vocals, and contrasting styles. Highlights from this one include "Trophy Wife", "Pretty in Porcelain", and "The Judged" (though the latter sounds eerily simila
