Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicA Day to Remember For Those Who Have HeartCatchy and heavy. It's a perfect blend of pop-punk and harcore.August Burns Red MessengersAbsolutely perfect in every way. Nothing else is needed.The Human Abstract Nocturne4.5 superbTaylor Swift Fearless4.0 excellentChelsea Grin Chelsea GrinI prefer music with meaning to it to be honest but sometimes raw bruatlity medicates better than emotional meaningful music. Awesome display of pure heaviness.Motionless In White CreaturesI love this because of how improved it is over their EP. They haven't lost their originality but have changed drastically for the better. My only complaint on this one is that the clean vocals sound a little manufactured.The Word Alive DeceiverNever was a huge fan of their EP. Thought it was pretty much the same as every other band out there only with no emotional attachment to keep me interested. But this album is fantastic. It's technical and heavy especially for a post-hardcore band. My only complaint is that even the clean vocals are hard to understand at times. I expect that from the screams but not singing.Whitechapel A New Era of CorruptionBrutal death metal with breakdowns used sparingly. So many bands in this genre get carried away with the breakdowns but Whitechapel (although chugging along as well) has a lot more to offer than most deathcore bands.3.5 greatAttila RageCatchy death metal? You bet! This is fun to listen to and crushing at the same time. The musicians in this band are actually really talented and technical despite their "I don't give a fuck" attitude. The lyrics are stupid and lack any sense of morality but hell thats what they're going for and they accomplish it perfectly. Great live show too. Whitechapel The Somatic DefilementThe epitome of brutality right here. Everything from vocals to instrumentals to lyrics. The only problem with the album for me is that the lyrics are almost too brutal. They are disturbing and repulsive which is obviously the point but this isnt an album that most people will want to know the words to. Definately NOT a sing along.3.0 goodMonsters The Righteous Dead2.5 averageA Day to Remember What Separates Me from YouI would rate this higher if I weren't holding this to older ADTR standards. On the upside it's a good album for the most part for what it is. Very catchy and enjoyable to listen to. The lyrics are really good and awesome to sing along to (here comes a flood of scene girl facebook statuses). On the downside, A Day To Remember use to have a lot more to them than this. The only 3 songs that may possibly attract fans of the heavier ADTR are "Sticks and Bricks", "2nd Sucks", and "You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic". Their are only 10 songs on this album which is barely enough to be a full length which is fine for a debut but this is their fourth relsease. The production quality of the few heavy parts is terrible. The breakdowns sound terrible compared to older stuff. Go listen to how raw the breakdowns sound on "For Those Who Have Heart" and then listen to this. The guitar almost sounds muffled. They pumped this up to make it sound like they weren't selling out and then relseased "2nd Sucks" before the album came out. ADTR fans just got hustled.2.0 poorSuicide Silence No Time to BleedPretty shitty to be honest. Production quality sucks and there isnt any variety. Not even heavy enough to have brutality value. They mayhave started this wave of metal in a sense but there are so many bands that do it better by now and they havent progressed at all.
