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 FallenBring Me The Horizon SempiternalUnbelievable album. Stunning 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. Caliban Ghost EmpireGonna be a contender for metalcore album of the year. Wolves and Rats and Good Man are unreal good.Comeback Kid Die KnowingHits so fucking hard at times. Die Knowing, Lower the Line, Somewhere in this Miserable crush. E.S. Posthumus UnearthedEvanescence 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. I See Stars New DemonsMiles above anything else they've released. Despite an extremely dull mid-section, tracks 2-5 and 9-12 are
far beyond their prior material. The final track, "Who am I?" is especially enthralling and is the best track
they've ever produced. Highlights are Who Am I, Murder Mitten, When I Say Jump You Say How High, and
Follow Your Leader. Album is brought down by Judith Rules and We're not in Kansas Anymore though.Immediate Music TrailerheadJosh Groban CloserIf you don't like this album, you don't like music. Killing 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. 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 OnceOh, 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 ArcadiumSum 41 Does This Look InfectedTaking Back Sunday Louder NowThe Browning HypernovaWell, fuck me. Wasn't expecting it, but this album crushes. Synth-work is impeccable.Tool LateralusTwo Steps From Hell Legend4.0 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. Affiance The CampaignPretty dank. Some sick guitar riffs. Bohemian, You Will Be Replaced, Kings of Deceit, The Campaign.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 SideArcite 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.Beartooth SickPretty sick, raw ep. Shomo kills it. Only problem is a little too much chugging. Would like some killer riffs. Blink-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. 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 ReclamationCity 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. Deserters 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. Disturbed 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 EndHans Zimmer Gladiator (Soundtrack)Hope For The Dying DissimulationHope For The Dying AletheiaDefinitely has some holy shit moments. Last 4 tracks own. 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 ColonyKamelot SilverthornWow, album shows a truly astonishing melodic sensibility. Tommy kicks ass too. Kendrick Lamar good kid, m.A.A.d cityKillswitch Engage Disarm the DescentLionheart 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 BlackeningMachinemade God MaskedMemphis May Fire ChallengerMercenary Through Our Darkest DaysMore Than A Thousand Vol. 4 Make Friends and EnemiesMotionless In White CreaturesMutiny 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. 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 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. Senses 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. System 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 StateThe Amity Affliction Chasing GhostsGreat album. Pretty surprised they're not very popular. Pretty much like hardcore blink-182 with better lyrics.
rThe bonus track Too Legit To Quit, cover of Born To Die, is best song on the album. So if you haven't heard
that song, check it out.
Edit: Apparently Too Legit To Quit is now called Born To Die btw.The 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 Used ArtworkThirty Seconds to Mars A Beautiful LieThousand Foot Krutch The End Is Where We BeginThousand 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.Vanna The Few and the Far BetweenBlends chaos and melody extremely well. A very refreshing album.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 CaptorsZack Hemsey The Way3.5 greatAdestria ChaptersAll 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.Anullaby Anullaby EPArchitects DaybreakerAs I Lay Dying Shadows Are SecurityAvenged 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. Believer 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 FeverCaladan 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 Wonder What's NextClose 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.Dead 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. Disturbed 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. Eyes Set To Kill MasksFear Factory The IndustrialistFive Finger Death Punch 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.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 DyingI Killed The Prom Queen BelovedIce Nine Kills Safe Is Just A ShadowIcon For Hire ScriptedAriel is hot as hell and songs like Theater are catchy as fuck. A harder, better version of Paramore imo; I wish she'd scream a little bit though.Ill Nino One Nation UndergroundIn Flames Come ClarityKorn 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. Lionheart UndisputedLiving Sacrifice The Infinite OrderMachine Head Unto the LocustMacklemore and Ryan Lewis VS.Misery Signals Absent LightMotionless In White InfamousMuse Origin of SymmetryMy Chemical Romance Three Cheers For Sweet RevengeNine Lashes From Water to WarA pop-infused hard rock album filled with electronics and generic lyrics, but somehow it still works incredibly effectively. 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 & Men Of Mice & MenOf Mice & Men The FloodOh, Sleeper Son of the MorningOnward To Olympas IndicatorOur 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 getRed Innocence and InstinctRed Until We Have FacesRed Hot Chili Peppers CalifornicationRed Hot Chili Peppers Blood Sugar Sex MagikRighteous Vendetta The Fire InsideAlthough 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. 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. System 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 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 YearsThree 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 NowTool AenimaVolbeat 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 WhisperAs 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.Chevelle This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In)Chevelle Vena SeraCrossfade CrossfadeDemotional State: In DenialDevice DeviceDisturbed Ten Thousand FistsDropkick Murphys The Warrior's CodeDropkick Murphys Going Out In StyleEmery We Do What We WantEnter Shikari Take to the SkiesEvans Blue Evans BlueHaste the Day DreamerIn Flames Sounds of a Playground FadingIn This Moment BloodWould be a phenomenal album if every song wasn't sex-oriented in an annoying, dislikable, slutty fashion.Legacy DepthsLimp Bizkit Chocolate Starfish...Linkin Park Minutes To MidnightLove and Death ChemicalsMachinemade God The Infinity ComplexMy Epic BeholdOf Mice & Men Restoring ForcePreviews honestly sound dope.

I The Mighty SatoriLegacy 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.

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! (US) This Means WarAvenged Sevenfold Avenged SevenfoldBlink-182 NeighborhoodsCapture the Crown Til DeathMuch better than everyone suggests. Still not great, but shows some potential if the band grows up and loses the auto tune and atrocious lyricismCrossfade Falling AwayCrossfade We All BleedDead by April IncomparableDeuce Nine LivesHysterical ratings distribution. 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. And Star needs to not be on any songs next time, cause he also is an automatic song ruiner.

Its not totally horrible, its just one of the least memorable albums in a while for me. And one of the most disappointing.Falling In Reverse The Drug In Me Is YouFear Factory TransgressionFive Finger Death Punch American CapitalistFlyleaf Memento MoriFor The Fallen Dreams Back BurnerHands Like Houses Ground DwellerI See Stars Digital RenegadeIll Nino Dead New WorldMiss May I At HeartThis has gotta be the most frustrating album I've heard in a while. 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. As a whole, definitely disappointing.Red Hot Chili Peppers I'm with YouRise Against EndgameSecrets The AscentSleeping With Sirens FeelSum 41 Screaming Bloody MurderTaking Back Sunday New AgainThe Sorrow Origin of the StormThe Used Lies for the LiarsThousand Foot Krutch Set It OffVolbeat Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies1.5 very poorAbandon All Ships GeevingAbandon All Ships MalocchioAll That Remains A War You Cannot WinTried so hard to like this album, but couldn't. It also has just gotten worse over time. TFOI was incredible, Overcome was good, FWAM was incredible too, and now this is just so far below those. Its extremely disappointing. I'm totally for clean vocals too, just the guitar sucks comparatively, and the vocals are not catchy, not aggressive, and just weaker. Damn...

Overall: shitty. not as bad as this site makes them seem though. they're just hysterically generic.

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.

A lot. Missing all angst of former albums in favor of poppy electronic bullshit, and conquistador has shitty production.
