The album closer is devastatingly epic.Architects Lost Forever // Lost TogetherSo dope. 1st half of the album is very good; the 2nd half is unreal.
Top tracks: The Distant Blue, Youth Is Wasted on the Young, Colony Collapse, Castles in
the Air, Dead Man Talking, GravediggerAs I Lay Dying An Ocean Between UsAvenged Sevenfold Waking the FallenBeartooth DisgustingThis album fucking kicks ass. Caleb's performance is unbelievable and every song basically has a catchy awesome chorus. Its too bad the instrumentals aren't on par with Caleb but the album is dope nonetheless. Not a bad track on here.Caliban Ghost EmpireGonna be a contender for metalcore album of the year. Wolves and Rats and Good Man are unreal good.Chevelle La GargolaThis album is an absolute monster. A warm welcome to a heavier, better Chevelle. Comeback Kid Die KnowingHits so fucking hard at times. Die Knowing, Lower the Line, Somewhere in this Miserable crush. E.S. Posthumus UnearthedEpica The Quantum EnigmaWow, is what I have to say about this album. Epica seriously brings the 'Epic' this time around. On top of the great single Unchain Utopia, the entire second half of the albums stands out as well as track 2, The Second Stone. I think Omen takes the cake as my top track though - just seriously fucking epic. One of the best, if not the best, symphonic metal albums I've heard.Evanescence FallenGunther PleasuremanHans Zimmer Crimson TideHaste the Day Attack of the Wolf KingThis album gets better every time I listen to it. Each track is solid at worst, phenomenal at best. Sensational riff work and some of the best vocals in metalcore. Its truly a shame this band broke up at its peak. Heartist Feeding FictionAlbum of the Year for me so far. Every song sounds like a dope single. So catchy, so fun. First Wovenwar, now this. Two decently heavy bands sticking primarily to clean vocals. Awesome. Seriously check this out. If you're looking for heavier tracks, try Set Me Free, Demons, Legacy, and Manipulate. If you're looking for softer, poppier tracks, check out Ready to Change and Skeletons. And that's not even counting other phenomenal tracks like Pressure Point. Immediate Music TrailerheadJosh Groban CloserIf you don't like this album, you don't like music. Linkin Park MeteoraManners Pale Blue LightThe lyrics are fucking insane and together with the music, this album is unreal captivating. Boiling Point, Rent, The Sun Won't Rise, Living Will... holy shit.Nightwish OnceNothing More Nothing MoreOne of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Friendly Fire, Jenny, and God Went North are so fucking good. Oh, Sleeper The TitanOh, Sleeper does not fail to impress. Phenomenal ep. Has everything you could ask for. complexity. simplicity.
it goes soft. it goes hard. Naofumi Mitsuhashi is a banger of an opener - catchy and aggressive - doesn't fuk
around with cleans. The pitch travels along similar lines, but its worse. Death from Above has one of Oh,
Sleeper's catchiest choruses. Heavy Hands is just fuking dope. The Rise finishes hard and strong. Heavy Hands
is one of my contenders for songs of the year thus far (though its maybe too early to tell just how much I like
it)Our Last Night Oak IslandMy favorite release of the year so far. Our Last Night finally fulfills their potential as a hardcore band that sticks primarily to clean vocals - guitar is melodic and aggressive, lyrics are meaningful and hopeful, vocals are catchy and memorable. For individual tracks, check out Dark Storms, Reality Without You, Sunrise, Oak Island, but whole EP is excellent. Phinehas The Bridge BetweenThissssss is the most satisfying EP I've ever heard. Actually. Red End of SilenceRelistening to this album - it's sensational. Makes me see how far they've fallen kind've, but maybe the new album will be better than the previews suggest.Red Hot Chili Peppers Stadium ArcadiumRise Against The Sufferer and the WitnessSum 41 Does This Look Infected?Taking Back Sunday Louder NowThe Ghost Inside Dear YouthDudes hit the heart - better than anyone. Album crushes, it makes you want to fist pump, it makes you want to lift, it makes you want to cry sweetly, and it makes you want to strive for better. Love this band and what they stand for.rOut of Control is the poppiest track. Phoenix Flame is the soft track. Wide-Eyed is a bit different with the guest spot from Butler of Letlive, though its not my style. Mercy is the crusher. The Other Halfnote is an emotional crusher. rStandouts: Avalanche, With the Wolves, Mercy, Phoenix Flame, The Other Half.rMy album of the year, but I guess that's no surprise coming from me, so check it out yourself. The Used ArtworkThis album is fucking sick. Kinda makes you wonder what the hell happened in such a short time cause after this they got soft as fuck.Thera For Someone, SomewherePick this shit up unless you like eating monkey feces. But still do anyway.rAncient Mariner bitches.To The Wind Block Out The Sun and SleepAlbum fucking crushes - Vacant Home and Hands of the Clock are especially sick.Tool LateralusTwo Steps From Hell LegendWolves at the Gate VxVThis album is the fucking shit. So dope. Mother fuckers straight-up know how to jam for jesus. Worst tracks
are East and West and Relief which are still good. All the others are so good though. I haven't heard Wake Up
though I think due to download.
But now I have, and it rules too.
Been listening on repeat - its just so fucking good - Rest is my song of the year so far. 4.0 excellent36 Crazyfists A Snow Capped RomanceA Day to Remember Common CourtesyI've never really gotten into anything this band has done; this album is extremely well-done though. Blends pop-punk and metalcore extremely well. "Sometimes you're the head, sometimes you're the nail" "dead and buried" "best of me" "violence" "life @ 11" "End of Me" are all incredible. A Feast For Kings Hell On EarthThis is EP really pushes Metalcore pretty good. The band blends different elements remarkably in a very progressive style. Brittle Spirit is probably the highlight but React/Regret is exceptional as well. Affiance The CampaignPretty dank. Some sick guitar riffs. Bohemian, You Will Be Replaced, Kings of Deceit, The Campaign.Affiance BlackoutBlackout and Midnight rock. Vocalist kills. Album crushes.All That Remains The Fall of IdealsAll That Remains For We Are ManyAltars Something MoreIn integrating more clean and gang vocals, as well as improving upon their overall sound, Altars have expanded upon the potential they showed in their debut. Amon Amarth With Oden on Our SideApologies I Have None Black EverythingArcite The Escape KeyAs I Lay Dying The Powerless RiseAs I Lay Dying AwakenedThe hate for this album is very surprising; although, I'm sure the cleans threw some people off. That being rsaid, this album runs train. Catchy and aggressive with some dope ass riffs. Instrumentation and vocals are rboth sick. Competes with AOBU for their best album. rI'm upping this to a five. Just blasted it straight through again. If this shit don't pump you up before game rtime than you're a pussy. Just kidding. Kinda. Asking Alexandria From Death to DestinyAugust Burns Red Rescue and RestoreMind-blowing album. Awesome experimentation complemented by some sweet breakdowns and riffs. If just one or a few songs had some cleans that somehow fit, for me, it would be a 4.5. Missing the vocal variety that would've provided, but luckily the vocals are badass anyway. Echoes is dope.Bane Don't Wait UpI've never been much good at saying goodbye - goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye - Epic. rTop tracks: Final Backwards Glance, Wrong Planet, Calling HoursBeartooth SickPretty sick, raw ep. Shomo kills it. Only problem is a little too much chugging. Would like some killer riffs. Blinded Colony Bedtime PrayersBlink-182 Take Off Your Pants and JacketBlink-182 Dogs Eating DogsIt could use more Mark and a bit more of their old punk feel, but its still great. Brand New Deja EntenduBreakdown Of Sanity PerceptionBreakdown of Sanity know how to do it big on the guitar front, no doubt. This album demonstrates that. They even can create interesting atmosphere as well, and enough instrumental variation to provide kickass, exciting music. Unfortunately, they need that kind of variation in the vocal department. Its not that the vocalist is bad; he's not. Its just that the low OOOOOOOOO growl can get boring if used to the extent that it is. Though the band does utilize clean vocals EXTREMELY occasionally, which is very refreshing, they're not nearly as prominent as they should be, and the monotony of the harsh vocals, which stay in mid-range for the majority of the album except for the lows for a bunch of breakdowns, is what brings the rating down to a 4. Yes, still a 4. Cause they do it that big. Bring Me the Horizon SempiternalStunning atmosphere and emotion and phenomenally consistent. The inclusion of keyboards, strings, and half-scream/yelled vocals bring this to a whole new level. With the exception of Anti-vist, great lyrical content as well. Tracks 3-7 are the highlights, with tracks 10-11 bringing the album to a close extremely well. Bullet for My Valentine The PoisonBuried in Verona FacelessAlbum came out of nowhere to drop me on my ass. It kills.
Check out Catatonic, Antidote, and Blind Eyes.Candlelight Red ReclamationChevelle Wonder What's NextCity in the Sea Below the NoiseWith some additional atmosphere and varied structure, this album would be one of the best metalcore releases of the year. Conditions Full of WarHaven't heard their old stuff, but for what this is, its very good. Not really into this kind of pop rock material, but its actually very well done. The harder songs, aka skeleton and walking separate ways (which are not really hard at all) are extremely good.dangerkids collapseExcellent debut. That being said, I'm hopeful this band has more to offer. With some varied structure and some improved guitar, this band could make Hybrid Theory 2 but this album wasn't it. Good guitar doesn't really show up until the last song and its a brief appearance. And just a heads up, with two short instrumental tracks, there's only ten real songs, and only four new songs if you've heard the tracks previously released. Highlights are Countdown, Light Escapes, We're All In Danger, Paper Thin, and Cut Me Out.Dark Tranquillity ConstructEpic album. I wish the vocalist could sing a little bit more/better, but the instrumentals are dope and I appreciate the occasional cleans for variety purposes. Degradead A World DestroyerDemon Hunter True DefianceDeserters Try to FeelClocking in at just under twenty minutes, Deserters' new EP packs in enough emotion to fill a full album. Want, The Feeling, and The Pawn prove that this band should be receiving a lot more recognition in the future. Devil Sold His Soul Belong/BetrayDisturbed The SicknessDrowning Pool ResilienceAn extremely consistent effort. The metal gets pretty much dropped in favor of a full hard rock sound. Eminem The Eminem ShowEverything In Slow Motion PhoenixGets boring at times, but has a strong finish and even stronger beginning. Definitely one of the best albums of the year so far. Highlights are Get Out, Speak, Poison, The Fool, and Proxima.Fades Away PerceptionsFit for a King Creation | DestructionI would love this band if they didn't chug so damn much. rThey still chug, but damn this a pretty damn sweet album. Cleans are absurdly improved from their last album, and there's actually some pretty good riffs sprinkled in. Screams are still sick. Five Finger Death Punch The Wrong Side of Heaven and The Righteous Side...shit leaked mother fuckers. check it out. probably gonna be bombrListened fully through twice. Its bomb. If they altered their verse chorus verse chorus solo chorus formula rmore often, it might be a 4.5. Each time they do, its very refreshing. Top tracks are Watch You Bleed, Wrong rSide of Heaven, Anywhere but Here, M.I.N.E, and Dot Your Eyes. Way better than the subpar American rCapitalist and is easily the best material they've done. Very excited for vol. 2.Forgotten Tears Words to EndGideon CallousedHardcore as fuck. The cleans could be better at times, but that's to be expected from a band like this and they occasionally hit the spot. Catchy as hell. Savage is a standout straight hardcore track with purely harsh vocals. The Pulse is a soothing instrumental that serves as a nice calm within the storm. Calloused, World of Hurt, and The Limit kick ass and some nice cleans mix em up. Hand of Mercy ResolveHans Zimmer Gladiator (Soundtrack)Hope For The Dying DissimulationHope For The Dying AletheiaDefinitely has some holy shit moments. Last 4 tracks own. Hypocrisy VirusHypocrisy The ArrivalI See Stars New DemonsMiles above anything else they've released. Despite an extremely dull mid-section, tracks 2-5 and 9-12 are rfar beyond their prior material. The final track, "Who am I?" is especially enthralling and is the best track rthey've ever produced. Highlights are Who Am I, Murder Mitten, When I Say Jump You Say How High, and rFollow Your Leader. Album is brought down by Judith Rules and We're not in Kansas Anymore though.Icon For Hire Icon for HireBasically hated this album on first listen... extremely poppy and girlish at times. But its super catchy and innovative, and after a few listens, it became awesome. Its refreshing when bands try new things; this is an excellent example of that. Ill Nino Revolution/RevolucionIll Nino EpidemiaAfter a fairly poor effort in Dead New World, Ill Nino bounces back. Ill Nino is the hardest they've been in years rin Epidemia, as can be noticed by the title track. Plus, their choruses have never been catchier and their rinstrumentation has never been better, aside from the rare guitar sections as could be seen in I Am Loco that rare missing from this. Still, this album really is superb. Tracks like Eva, Time Won't Save You, and Forgive Me rFather... among others show Ill Nino at the top of their game. In Fear and Faith SymphoniesIn Fear and Faith In Fear and Faith In Flames Reroute to RemainIn Flames ColonyIn Flames A Sense of PurposeIn Hearts Wake EarthwalkerDivine is not the only standout track... Gaia may only be a minute long, but it is an outstanding introduction to the title track, which carries the momentum forward and is arguably just as good as Divine. Sacred is another moderately strong track with a beautiful chorus, but the next two tracks really solidify the album as superb for me. Gravity and Healer are two of the best, and most refreshing, post-hardcore songs I've heard in a longtime. Gravity's verses are solid and it has a captivating clean vocal chorus, meanwhile, Healer has simply beautiful instrumentals with a riveting harsh vocal chorus and is, to me, the best song on the album. The band even busts out some intense gang vocals and a hardcore almost raplike section as well. Rebirth soothes the waters so to speak and is another great instrumental track. With Afterglow, the album picks up right where it left off. It has a cool opening riff and another outstanding harsh vocal chorus, preceded by small sections of cleans in the verses. Truenorth also has a pretty nifty background riff, and though it isn't one of album's top songs, it still stands on its own as another solid track. The album closes (non-instrumentally) with Wildflower, which is an almost purely clean vocal track and a great one. It builds to a climax when the harsh vocals power through to its close. The track is beautiful and powerful. The instrumental Mother finishes the album well, even if the spoken words somewhat distract from the beauty of the track itself in the midsection. Insomnium Shadows of the Dying SunKamelot SilverthornWow, album shows a truly astonishing melodic sensibility. Tommy kicks ass too. Kendrick Lamar good kid, m.A.A.d cityKilling the Messenger What Matters MostHonestly, some of the best metalcore I've heard in a long time. Heard these guys when they first released Three Hundreth. Since then, they've added solid cleans and improved a lot. This EP crushes.
Best track is Rising Tide. Other highlights are What Matters Most and Find My Way. Killswitch Engage Disarm the DescentLinkin Park The Hunting PartyIt may not be awesome or even close to as heavy as it was cracked out to be, but All For Nothing is my favorite
track they've done in a long time and Keys to the Kingdom and Line in the Sand are other great tracks.
Edit: Album is a for sure grower. Line in the Sand is fucking dope as all fuck. Lionheart Welcome To The West CoastLove and Death Between Here And LostOne of the best nu-metal albums in a long time. In a genre that rarely hits the mark, this album does. The only weakness is that Welch electronically alters his voice a little too frequently, but it is not a huge issue. For Today frontman Montgomery provides some badass screams on "I W8 4 U" as well. Other standouts are the chorus of the Abandoning, Meltdown, Fading Away, and Bruises. But most importantly, its an impressively consistent effort, almost to the point of it being a weakness. One or two more tracks like Bruises, which sounds very different from the rest of the album would make this even better, in addition to less preachy lyrics.Machine Head The BlackeningMachine Head Bloodstone and DiamondsThere's no doubt there's a couple misses on this album - mostly when they're trying to experiment - most notably Damage Inside, and there's a couple others that fall flat. But there's no beaster vocalist than Flynn, and the guitar and bass are sweet in many spots. Sail Into the Black, In Comes the Flood, Game Over, and Take Me Through the Fire are awesome tracks. Machinemade God MaskedManners Apparitions/EscapismMercenary Through Our Darkest DaysMore Than A Thousand Vol. 4 Make Friends and EnemiesMotionless in White CreaturesMotionless in White ReincarnateMIW has clearly matured on this effort. Miles above Infamous, and better than Creatures in my opinion as well.rEverybody Sells Cocaine, Break the Cycle, Generation Lost, and Carry the Torch are great songs. Mutiny Within Mutiny WithinMutiny Within SynchronicityVery sick. I really hope that these guys stick with it.My Heart to Fear Lost Between Brilliance and InsanityPerhaps an excellent might be generous, but its extremely good for how under the radar these guys are. The cleans are catchy and well-placed, some very good guitar riffs, and some especially impressive piano and synth-worth intermixed. Where the ep falters is on production, drumming, and consistent guitar work - far too much chugging, but in a somehow soft fashion at times. Some very impressive sections on the ep, but a lot of mediocre stuff too. But I look forward to their future.My Heart to Fear AlgorithmPretty great album. Suffers in my opinion slightly from the tuning of the guitar which produces a very similar sound in too much of the album, but thats really my biggest complaint. Very refreshing brand of metalcore, but surprised they don't use cleans, which were very good, more often to their advantage. There were definitely more on the ep than on the album which was surprising. No Bragging Rights The Concrete FlowerWithout a doubt, in my top 5 albums of the year. The singles do not do this album justice. Just listen to the first two tracks, and you'll know. Strength Through Struggle and The Concrete Struggle come out da gate with a fucking vengeance. The lyrics are pure inspiration. Other dope tracks include Downhearted and Right Minded, which brings the rage. Do yourself a favor, and make yourself a better, stronger person, and go check out this album. Oh, Sleeper Children Of FireParkway Drive AtlasWould still love to see Parkway change it up and throw in some cleans every once and a while, but they pretty much hit on everything else. Some sick riffs on here. Great stuff. Phinehas thegodmachineJust heard this today; this album is incredible. I have no idea how this has gone so under the radar. Great
songwriting, great riffs, great cleans. Look forward to more from them in the future. I Am The Lion, Wishing
Well, A Pattern in Pain, and Crowns are phenomenal. Phinehas The Last Word Is Yours To SpeakPhinehas kicks ass. Always. Do yourself a favor and get this album.Powerwolf Blood of the SaintsRise To Fall Defying The GodsRise To Fall Restore The BalanceRise To Remain City of VulturesThis album has really grown on me; I realize its really damn good. Dickinson is truly an incredible vocalist; however, even though his lows are good, I'd like to see him use more mid-range screams instead. The lows take away from some of the emotion in my opinion. And his cleans are awesome. Hope next album is even better. Ruiner Hell is EmptySenses Fail RenacerSkillet ComatoseSoilwork The Living InfiniteA mostly exceptional metal offering that slightly suffers from a lengthy, repetitive runtime; yet, standout tracks like the two title tracks, Spectrum of Eternity, and Long Live the Misanthrope prevent boredom from ever ensuing. Sonic Syndicate Only InhumanStick To Your Guns The Hope DivisionStick To Your Guns DiamondStill Remains Ceasing to BreatheGreat metalcore release. Heavy and melodic with a bunch of catchy choruses. Favors the style of Of Love and Lunacy far more than the The Serpent. Standout tracks include Bare Your Teeth, Beacon, Cain, and Hopeless. Stone Sour House of Gold and Bones - Part 1Really great album. Unfortunately, two of the album's best tracks were released prior to the album release which always brings down the excitement when actually listening to the full album cause its no surprise when these two great songs come on. That being said, Absolute Zero and Gone Sovereign are by no means the only great songs; A Rumor of Skin, Tired, and Ru486 are among other great songs; however, this album doesn't have quite as good standouts as I would hope for. These songs are great, but especially the ballads, just don't reach heights like Bother or Slipknot's Snuff. So the album is excellent, its just not outstanding. Hopefully Part 2 has some real standouts on it. Sylosis Dormant HeartSystem of a Down System of a DownTaking Back Sunday Tell All Your FriendsTech N9ne Everready (The Religion)Tech N9ne Misery Loves KompanyTech N9ne Something ElseTesseracT Altered StateTexas in July BloodworkThe Amity Affliction YoungbloodsThe Devil Wears Prada 8:18By far their best work to date. Phenomenal atmosphere and way rawer than their previous efforts. Clean vocals are vastly improved as showcased in standout track Care More. Other highlights are Gloom, Rumors, War, and Sailor's Prayer. The Ghost Inside Get What You GiveThe Persevering Promise An Illusion In ShamblesIf you're looking for catchy melodic metalcore with an intermix of screams and non-whiny clean vocals, of
which the cleans take the majority, and heavy dope riffs, look no further. This caught me out of nowhere.The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Don't You Fake ItThe Sorrow Misery EscapeI am extremely surprised by this album; their other albums have been decent, but this is well beyond what rthose albums are. It fucking crushes...The Unguided InvaZionWhat Sonic Syndicate should be. Karin Axelson should jump ship. The Word Alive RealThe singles were just not good - terrible choices. This album is miles better than Life Cycles. The guitar is so so much better, and Telle goes all out a bunch of times in a good way. Some not so great songs for sure, starting with the singles Broken Circuit and Never Forget, along with Lighthouse and Glass Castle which are by far the worst tracks. That gets more than made up for though with some really high quality tracks. Great synth work, great guitar, great vocals. rTop Tracks: The Fortune Teller, 94th St, Your Mirage, Terminal, The Runaway, CollapsingThirty Seconds to Mars A Beautiful LieThousand Foot Krutch Welcome to the Masquerade (Fan Edition)Tool 10,000 DaysTrivium Vengeance Falls1. Album sounds a lot like Disturbed. 2. Its bosser than Disturbed, which makes it pretty dope in my opinion. rrFinally a decently heavy band deciding to do clean vocals, but keep their previous instrumentals. Fuck ATR's ralbum, but this time it works for me. rAlbum is simple, but has sick riffage and catchy choruses. Rarely rabandons a melody. rMost sputnikers won't like it. But this album kicks ass. rGotta bump Nate's comment though I disagree, haha.Upon a Burning Body The World is My Enemy NowAlbum will get mad hate probably, but its heavy as fuck as far as I'm concerned. After hearing the album, its almost like the band intentionally pulled the stupid stunt to breed additional hatred for them so their lyrics were more applicable. Probably not true, but whatever. I personally love the singles Red Razor Wrists and Scars. Judgement fucking kills too. Fountain of Wishes, The New Breed, and Middle Finger to the World are pretty dope too. Blood, Sweat, and Tears is decent too, though the cleans don't fit the sound too much. But not even close to the atrocity that is Telle's feature on I've Earned My Time. Cleans sound so off with the music its ridiculous. But overall, I fucking dig it. Watch This Burn My Way BackIncredible debut. Looking for big things from these guys in the future. We Came As Romans Tracing Back RootsWithin Temptation HydraMiles ahead of their previous release. While there's a few slip ups along the way (Xzibit's misplaced feature on And We Run), Hydra is one of the band's strongest, if not the strongest, WT release.Wolves at the Gate CaptorsWovenwar WovenwarThis album is what I've been waiting for since I got into metal - basically very good metalcore instrumentals with all clean vocal singing. This album delivers basically everything I've waited so long for - the problem is that its missing a little bit of intensity. It needs the occasional scream, which Blay could easily provide. Josh could easily add some additional zest to the band's sound if his vox were utilized more frequently, and were intermixed with Blay's - instead, only one of them is being used at a time (Josh is basically only used for the chorus of Prophets and the entire song Matter of Time). Where Josh is used provides some of the strongest moments of the album. My only other complaint is that there isn't a lot of atmosphere, or builds. rHighlights: Matter of Time, Prophets, Profane, Father/Son, Identity, Death to RightsZack Hemsey The Way3.5 greatAdestria ChaptersAdestria Gilded HeartsConsistently good; but unfortunately, inconsistently excellent. Propheteering is an exceptional track and opener boasting a catchy chorus and great guitar work. In Debt to Death is a straight badass track with an outstanding chorus and Shared Scars closes out the album well. The first half of the album is rounded out by some pretty good songs including the two singles, but tracks 6-9 are quite bland, and bring the album down from what it should be. The band surprisingly doesn't utilize clean vocals this time around as much as expected, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as they're not always good (Dangerous Waters), but overall, the band could've used a bit more stepping outside their comfort zone. Still, a great album. All That Remains OvercomeAmaranthe The NexusBetween a 3 and a 3.5. Round up for hotness. A bit disappointed though; not as many standouts as I was hoping for. Still good though. Mechanical Illusion, the Nexus, and Future on Hold were the highlights for me.Amarna Reign AtonementAmarna Reign StormsI think there's more potential here than is displayed, but that doesn't mean this isn't a great album.Annisokay The Lucid Dream[er]Anullaby Anullaby EPArch Enemy War EternalArchitects DaybreakerAs I Lay Dying Shadows Are SecurityAssassins War of Aggressioninstrumentation is decent and there's actually some great choruses if you can get past the poor production (imo) on the clean vocals. New Reality, Another Chapter, A Hidden Demon, and the Blind Leading the Blind are very good. Most of the other tracks are just okay, but many have great moments.Avenged Sevenfold Hail to the KingAvenged Sevenfold shows some creativity in trying to recapture the feel of old school metal and sometimes manages to succeed. Although the attempt sometimes comes off cheesy, the album is largely enjoyable. Despite the fact that its simplicity causes it to be underwhelming at times, Hail to the King has enough strong tracks to make it more than a worthwhile listen.Bayside Killing TimeBayside CultBayside does bayside. Some pretty awesome, catchy riffage and solid vocals and lyricism. Highlight is Stuttering. Behemoth The SatanistWish it wasn't satanic, but as for the music itself, it definitely slays. O Father O Satan O Sun is easily the best track. Epic. Being As an Ocean Dear G-dBeliever TranshumanBetraying the Martyrs Breathe In LifeBleed from Within Uprising@deadguy Those lyrics are fine in my opinion. Definitely get the blood pumping
Definitely has some very good tracks, and the whole album is executed very well; however, there isn't enough variety in the material to make it as good as it could be. Lots of good riffs, etc, and Colony, Our Divide, and Devotion are all standouts. I liked listening to the previews of all the tracks better than the album though because of the lack of variety. The two instrumentals are pretty refreshing though as well. Blessthefall Hollow BodiesBreakdown Of Sanity MirrorsBreaking Benjamin We Are Not AloneBring Me the Horizon There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen ItHuge step in the right direction. Hopefully Sempiternal kicks ass. Bullet for My Valentine FeverBury Tomorrow The Union Of CrownsBury Tomorrow RunesCaladan Brood Echoes Of Battlehaha. Haven't heard this band, but band is named after a character from a series I'm reading and he's a
fuckin beast so I probably gotta check this out.
Yeah, its pretty boss.Chevelle This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In)Children of Bodom Are You Dead Yet?Close To Home MomentumCoheed and Cambria The Afterman: DescensionVery good album. Unfortunately, after an extremely strong first five tracks, the 2nd half really loses pace.
Gravity;s Union is absurdly good.D.R.U.G.S. D.R.U.G.S.Darkest Hour Undoing RuinDarkest Hour Deliver UsDarkest Hour The Human RomanceDarkest Hour Darkest HourDead by April Dead by AprilIts a lot to ask haha, but if they added heavy guitar riffs (not just heavy synth), got rid of auto tune (I'm pretty
sure they can sing live), and had their clean vocalist sing slightly more masculine (their screamer can do good
cleans too), they'd be fukn' sick. Screamer is a beast and the synths and vocals are extremely catchy. Demon Hunter The TriptychDemon Hunter ExtremistDisarmonia Mundi Fragments Of D-GenerationDisarmonia Mundi Mind TricksDisarmonia Mundi The Isolation GameDisturbed IndestructibleDropkick Murphys The Meanest of TimesEarth Crisis Salvation of InnocentsEveryone Dies In Utah Polarities (+//-)Really good cleans, some good techno, and some good riffs too, but still maintains a hard sound. Really good album although nothing's sensational. Expire Pendulum SwingsExpire Pretty LowAlbum is pretty similar to Pendulum Swings. Very catchy crunchy dope ass riffage but still incredibly 'in the box.' Band would serve itself really well to do a little experimentation next time around. Eyes Set To Kill MasksFear Factory DemanufactureFear Factory The IndustrialistFive Finger Death Punch The Way of the FistFive Finger Death Punch War Is the AnswerFlyleaf FlyleafFlyleaf New HorizonsForevermore SojournerPretty fuckin' good for a young band. And mostly, the best part of it is that it seems like these guys have
more to offer. These guys have potential, for sure. A little variety and improved cleans (pretty good singer,
but there just weren't any really good choruses) would help though.Gojira L'Enfant SauvageHands Like Houses UnimagineHaste the Day Pressure the HingesHatebreed The Divinity of Purposepretty much as good as this type of album can get. If you like the style, you'll like it; if you don't, you won't. Honor Never Dies is pretty sweet.HerEcho Standing TallDespite unpolished (not very good) vocals, HerEcho seem to possess a knack for writing catchy and aggressive metalcore. Look forward to hearing what they can come up with for future endeavors. Hollywood Undead Swan SongsI want to hate this, but I can't. For those of you who gave this a low rating, don't lie to yourselves. This album is catchy as fuck and has some hysterical/sick parts every now and then. That being said, everything else they've released has been pretty shitty.Hollywood Undead Notes From the UndergroundRegardless of whether you like this style or not, one has to respect HU's ability to produce catchy songs with rsolid electronic instrumentation. They also remarkably blend rap and rock, which is usually a recipe for rdisaster (a.k.a American Tragedy), and this album is without a doubt their most mature effort yet, shitty rlyricism in a few party songs (pigskin, up in smoke) aside. And one has to admire hysterically simplistic lyrics rsuch as "supercalifragi--suck my dick," which is undeniably funny unless you take yourself way too seriously. rThey are without a doubt at their strongest producing rock songs - From the Ground, We Are, Lion, and rOutside are actually extremely good songs. If you wanna compare to Swan Songs, the only thing their debut rhas over this album is the party songs were undoubtedly catchier, but this album is far more mature. Highly rrecommended album, and it is hard to believe you wouldn't like this album at least a little bit unless you go rinto it intent on hating it. Outside is a phenomenal track.Hope For The Dying Hope For The DyingHow the West Was Won Wild and WasteCheck out Transmissions - one of the best songs of 2014 so far.

A harder, better version of Paramore imo; I wish she'd scream a little bit though.Ill Nino One Nation UndergroundIn Flames ClaymanIn Flames Come ClarityInsomnium Above the Weeping WorldInsomnium Across the DarkInsomnium One for SorrowIt's Alive Human ResourcesJamies Elsewhere Rebel - ReviveA surprisingly great album - In Depth Perception is a hell of a song. There's some catchy choruses as well (Sleepless Nights, Rebel Revive, Sick Fiction) and some cool background strings and opera type stuff every now and again. The screams are occasionally surprisingly powerful as well.Kingdom of Giants Ground CultureKorn The Paradigm ShiftDefinitely their best effort in a while. Still not excellent, but its got some good tracks. Prey For Me and It's All Wrong are the top tracks. The latter has easily the best guitar on the album. Fails to top Love and Death though.

While many songs will disappoint old fans, thanks to a few highlights (Lights We Burn, You Are The Light) and immensely catchy melodies, the album manages to be memorable. Unfortunately, the album is heavily dragged down by the likes of soft, emotionless tracks like Break the World and Surrender. Nonpoint NonpointOf Mice and Men Of Mice & MenOf Mice and Men The FloodOh, Sleeper Son Of The MorningOnward To Olympas IndicatorOphelia's Great Day DestinedEven as part of a subgenre of metalcore that I'm not particularly a fan of, its easy to recognize that OGD are a bit ahead of their peers. Our Last Night Age Of IgnoranceI'm really pleasantly surprised at how well Our Last Night pulled off the transition to mostly clean vocals. Some really catchy material in here, and, some pretty good riffs here and there too. With that being said, there are too few hard songs on here -- Fate, Send Me To Hell -- and even those aren't hard enough. Throw in a few more hardcore elements and this would've been a phenomenal album. As it is, its still an incredibly enjoyable listen. Palisades OutcastsAbout as good as a generic post-hardcore album with electronics can getPurity Ring ShrinesRed Innocence and InstinctRed Until We Have FacesRed Hot Chili Peppers CalifornicationRed Hot Chili Peppers Blood Sugar Sex MagikReformers AbolishUnapologetic and heavy with good clean vocals - pretty great and refreshing debut though it could use a bit more varietyRighteous Vendetta LawlessAlthough the album may be labeled generic, Righteous Vendetta varies from other metalcore bands in favoring clean vocals far over harsh vocals. The album undoubtedly has boring tracks; yet, it ultimately is a promising debut LP with strong tracks like Defiance, This Pain, and Losing Control. Ruiner Prepare To Be Let DownRuiner I Heard These Dudes Are AssholesSea of Trees EnvisionThis album is definitely worth checking out. Great vocals and just a refreshing approach to metal overall. Bare is my favorite track, but 3,000, Envision, Workaholic, and Coward are also definitely great tracks as well. Better to listen to the whole thing though - I was very surprised at how good this was. Slipknot Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)Staind Break the CycleStaind StaindStone Sour House of Gold and Bones - Part 2The Conflagration, House of Gold and Bones, Red City, and Peckinpah are the highlights. Regardless of what you thought before about Stone Sour, check this out.Storm The Sky VigilanceSuffer Well SorrowsNot sure about the concepts or lyrics, but the clean vocals are sick. The guitar is solid too; its a shame that
Century Media sort of screwed them over cause this album probably would've done pretty well. Sybreed Slave DesignSybreed AntaresSystem of a Down MezmerizeSystem of a Down HypnotizeTaking Back Sunday Where You Want To BeTear Out The Heart ViolenceOne of the most surprising albums of the year thus far. Thought it was going to be pretty shitty; it was actually very good. The style has certainly been done before, but rarely this well. Choruses are extremely well done. Texas in July Texas in JulyPersonally, in the past I've found their material to be fairly poor. This, however, is a solid album. It is somewhat repetitive, but in my opinion that's mostly the result of no clean vocals, which I'm sure some people are a fan of. If they added occasional cleans, it would definitely bring some variety to the album, but still, solid album.The Amity Affliction Let the Ocean Take MeLost & Fading, Death's Head, and Give it All fucking own. I've been shitting on this band for having crappy harsh vocal verses, but this album totally shut me up. The Antlers HospiceThe Browning HypernovaWell, fuck me. Wasn't expecting it, but this album crushes. Synth-work is impeccable.The Devil Wears Prada Dead ThroneThe Foreshadowing OionosThe Foreshadowing Second WorldThe Overseer We Search, We DigThe Overseer Rest and Let GoLots of atmosphere. Band takes a step back from their more post-hardcore/ metalcore tendencies and focuses a lot more on ambience. It works out well. Depraved, Give Light to My Eyes, Fragile Wings, and Scarlet Wool are great tracks. The Plot In You First BornThe Veer Divide The Blackened SkyTheocracy As The World BleedsThirty Seconds to Mars This Is WarThis or the Apocalypse Dead YearsThousand Foot Krutch The End Is Where We BeginThree Days Grace Transit of VenusNot a great band but this is actually pretty good. No standouts like "Animal I Have Become" but its a pretty solid album. Has a more old school rock feel to it, except add electronic elements if that makes sense. Respect their evolution though. Much much better than Life Starts NowTo Speak Of Wolves Find Your Worth, Come HomeTool AenimaVanna VoidVolbeat Rock The Rebel/Metal The DevilWhile She Sleeps This Is the SixVery hard, yet melodic album -- just what you want -- the only thing that would make this album sensational was to bring in a few more solid clean vocals into the equation, not whiny ones, The Ghost Inside Get What You Give style, then this album would have a little bit more variety and it would be classic. Within Temptation The Silent ForceWrite This Down Lost WeekendDespite a few poor tracks and although its occasionally boring, thanks to a few standouts and good songwriting and vocals, this is a great album.3.0 good10 Years The Autumn Effect10 Years Division10 Years Feeding the WolvesA Hero a Fake Let Oceans LieAliens Ate My Setlist IllusionsVery generic, but pretty interesting anyway. Maybe worth checking out if you're not sickened by electronic
metal. All That Remains This Darkened HeartAlter Bridge FortressAngels and Airwaves We Don't Need to WhisperAnti-Mortem New SouthernAs I Lay Dying Frail Words CollapseAsking Alexandria Reckless and RelentlessLyrics suck, but the album's actually pretty good and well-rounded. Most of the tracks are pretty decent, but no stand-outs. There's a few catchy hooks but not as many as their first album (which had even worse lyrics than this one). Avenged Sevenfold NightmareAxeWound VulturesIts good. Not that similar to BFMV, more like Cancer Bats. Album is a little repetitive, but Cold is good, and Collide is pretty sick. Bad Meets Evil Hell: The SequelBreaking Benjamin PhobiaBreaking Benjamin Dear AgonyBullet for My Valentine Scream, Aim, FireBullet for My Valentine Temper TemperDisappointing, but my expectations were very high despite the miserable singles. rThe singles were two of the worst songs on the album, but there's not many great tracks. There are very few soaring choruses, and the guitars don't live up to Your Betrayal, 4 Words, Your Fist..., etc. on any song. rTears Don't Fall (Part 2) is definitely good, and works a little bit of nostalgia, but it mostly just reminds you of when Bullet was great (a.k.a hand of blood, TDF)rDefinitely some tracks that I will jam to quite a bit like Truth Hurts, Livin Life, Dead to the World, TDF 2, but the rest of the tracks are not very intense or emotional, and suffer from terrible lyricism, the biggest culprits being Leech and Dirty Little Secret.rThis site is kind of a joke for rating it a 1.6, but its not great. rWay more hard rock than metalcore.Bury Tomorrow PortraitsCapture the Crown Reign of TerrorVast improvement, in my opinion. kind've a fan of Beating the blade and firestarter.

Brought down a bit by some really crappy songs and a need to be Br00tal at times but it has its moments to be sure. If I Melt Away is a great song. Hypocrisy End of DisclosureIn Flames Sounds of a Playground FadingIn Flames Siren CharmsIts not melodeath, or heavy In Flames, but it is still In Flames. The biggest problem with the album is the often uninteresting verses, which have been taken over by the mainstream sound, but the songs are still very well-written and polished. With Eyes Wide Open is a standout for me. Also, I'm feeling like this album is gonna grow bigtime on me given that I hated the singles at first, but I kinda dig them now. Except Rusted Nail's verses blow dick. But if you can get over the fact that the band your listening to released Colony back in the day, then its still a good album.In This Moment BloodWould be a phenomenal album if every song wasn't sex-oriented in an annoying, dislikable, slutty fashion.Killer Be Killed Killer Be KilledLegacy DepthsLimp Bizkit Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog...Linkin Park Minutes to MidnightLove and Death ChemicalsMachinemade God The Infinity ComplexManners EscapismMemphis May Fire ChallengerMiss May I Apologies Are for the WeakMiss May I MonumentMy Epic BeholdNightmares SuspiriaAlbum has some very interesting tracks - Carnival of Souls and Enter the Void are particularly captivating.

Pretty surprised they're not very popular. Pretty much like hardcore blink-182 with better lyrics. rrThe bonus track Too Legit To Quit, cover of Born To Die, is best song on the album. So if you haven't heard rthat song, check it out.rEdit: Apparently Too Legit To Quit is now called Born To Die btw.The Plot In You Could You Watch Your Children BurnDefinitely better than most metalcore albums. There are certainly some poor songs on here, but there are also some good songs, and Troll is great. Lyrical content is somewhat repetitive, there's a very limited amount of catchy hooks, and too much chugging, but its still a good album.

pretty cool intro track, and Undertow is a very good track. Hopes Die Last Trust No oneI The Mighty SatoriIn Flames Soundtrack to Your EscapeLegacy With Peace In MindLil Wayne Tha Carter IVLinkin Park Living ThingsIts pretty good, but that doesn't mean I'm happy with it. Just like everyone else, I'd like to hear some songs that actually have some passion behind them, a little angst. Some good instrumentation, not poppy techno shit. Its impressive that LP can make this sound decent, but it just isn't nearly as good as their former style. And screaming doesn't make a song hard if the instrumentation is still sissy - meaning Lies, greed..., victimized, lost in... Faint was hard, and it had some electro. How bout some of that shit?Marilyn Manson Born VillainMayday Parade Mayday ParadeMemphis May Fire Unconditionalalbum is honestly surprisingly diverse after the singles. given how forgettable MMF is, not sure if this will stay good, but i enjoyed 1st listen.Our Last Night The Ghosts Among UsParabelle Reassembling the IconsParabelle Your Starry Eyes Will Never Make Us EvenPeriphery Periphery II: This Time It's PersonalRise Against The Black MarketDecent album and one of those that I feel like I might like a few years down the road, but my angsty self of today has this to say: "Pussy" Slipknot SlipknotSlipknot IowaSolution .45 For Aeons PastSonic Syndicate Sonic SyndicateStaind 14 Shades of GreyStaind Chapter VStaind The Illusion of ProgressSybreed God Is an AutomatonTaking Back Sunday Taking Back SundayThe Amity Affliction Severed TiesStairway to hell owns.

Even Danny tries to imitate the singers completely; only, he can't do it very well. His voice seems to be going as well. Don't know why, but maybe drinking, smoking, drugs, etc. But it is. AA's own song Run Free isn't half bad, but the rest is just worse versions of great songs.Attack Attack!

This album is very catchy, but the lyrics are absolutely atrocious and Deuce can't rap. Only good song is America. All the others have good parts that are ruined by other parts.

The band is pretty much doing everything I want: staying melodic while busting out a bunch of sick hard riffs; however, the cleans, although I love cleans in metal, are atrocious. Need a new clean singer so bad, so bad. Neff should keep his job as bassist and they should just get a clean vocalist. Nightwish ImaginaerumVery underwhelming; this band was spectacular with Tarja. They are no longer without her.Nine Inch Nails Hesitation MarksRed Release the PanicDamage is one of my favorite tracks they've done hands down. Howard Benson is a fucker for sure, and there definitely not enough strings, but they're still present at times. Glass House, As You Go, and If We Only are other decent tracks.

too.My Chemical Romance Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous KilljoysMyka Relocate Lies to Light the WayPapa Roach The ConnectionSo weak. Softer than I expected, which was pretty soft. Lots of electronics on this album too. I guess if that's
your style, you might like it, but its not mine.
A few decent songs; won't let up, where did the angels go, silence is the enemy are catchy as hell. Problem is
that the rest are big time shiiit and whole album is poppy as shit. Last resort dominates these tracks. Sick Puppies ConnectSkillet RiseSonic Syndicate Burn This CitySoulfly SavagesThe Acacia Strain Death Is the Only MortalThe Antlers FamiliarsThis might be beautifully put together, but the fact is that it doesn't come close to capturing the emotional power of a song like The Kettering at any point. It is unbearably bland and homogenous in my opinion. Can't believe I even managed to listen to the whole thing. This is honestly one of the most underwhelming albums I've ever heard in my life. Musicianship aside, this fucking sucks. The Killing Lights Hellbound And HeartlessThe Used Imaginary EnemyHow far this band has fallen since Artwork, which in my opinion is one of the most underrated grower albums ever. This album just really really blows. Very soft and uninspired and overly polished in a bad way. Only track really worth checking out is the Revolution.Thirty Seconds to Mars Love Lust Faith + DreamsDespite liking some of this band's material, this album sucks. A lot. Missing all angst of former albums in favor of poppy electronic bullshit, and conquistador has shitty production.

All shitty pop ballads basically with the exception of a few straight forward below average rock songs. Hard to describe how much this blows - couldn't even really sit through the whole thing. Had to skip a few parts of some songs. It really sucks that bad.
