Improves with each listen. Nothing groundbreaking, but tightly and consistently written, with shades of Fear Before circa "Odd How People Shake" a welcome addition to their tough-as-nails take on metalcore. It's a shame the've long since disbanded.

Architects Lost Forever // Lost Together3.5
The last four songs are unreal. If the rest of the album was up to the quality of "Colony Collapse," "Castle in the Air," "Youth is Wasted on the Young," and "The Distant Blue," this would easily best Hollow Crown. "Gravedigger" and "Naysayer" are pretty decent in their own right, and with them, this could have made for an incredible EP. Unfortunately, the rest of the album ranges from "listenable" to "good," barring the hackneyed "Broken Cross," bringing down the quality of the record significantly. Even so, this is the best Architects have been since their watershed album, and is fully deserving of the accolades it receives.

It's a huge, atonal mess to someone who doesn't play an instrument. Whatever they're doing might have some technical musical significance, the sole reason I haven't 1'd this, but Meshuggah sounds a hell of a lot better pushing the boundaries of metal.

Carnifex Hell Chose Me2.5
Carnifex Die Without Hope4.0
I guess my true score is a 3.7, a hair above the 3.6 I would have given "Until I Feel Nothing." Carnifex is never going to lose their deathcore aspect, but it's great fun watching them max out the death metal elements of their sound, with a touch of black metal, to compensate.

Chimaira Crown Of Phantoms4.0
Beyond impressed. Mark Hunter's average vocals and atrocious lyrics held back previous albums, marring their finest hour on the self-titled and its equally competent follow-up, but he's stepped it up in a big way. Replacing the entire band with members of Daath, who dropped a great and rather overlooked album in "The Hinderers" a few years back, really mitigates the issue(s) of Hunter's performance. "Crown of Phantoms" is essentially Hunter fronting Daath, and the results are pretty spectacular: "The Machine" is among Chimaira's best openers, and the title track features some of the strongest synergy the band has ever seen. The rest of the album is packed with riffs and grooves for days. "Crown of Phantoms" is one of the most pleasant surprises of 2013 from a band I didn't think had it in them.
Chimaira The Impossibility Of Reason2.5
"Stigmurder," "Eyes of a Criminal," and "Implements of Destruction" are great songs, the latter verging on excellent, but they're not enough to really elevate Chimaira's sophomore effort beyond slightly above-average metalcore. It's a vast improvement upon the mediocre "Pass Out of Existence," at least.

Coal Chamber Giving The Devil His Due2.5
Unfortunately, Coal Chamber's discography isn't nearly as varied as Fear Factory's, making "Giving the Devil His Due" a much less interesting compilation of odds and ends than something like "Hatefiles." "Headstones and the Walking Dead" is intriguing mainly for its backstory than any actual musical quality, and along with the "Babbit" demo and the live version of "Big Truck" (which makes this otherwise average song really pop), is probably the only worthwhile thing here. All of the alternate mixes are disposable, hardly differing from the originals beyond a voice effect here or a less-muddled riff there, and the demos are...well, demos. The bonus tracks that make up the middle of the tracklist were left off of their respective albums for a reason. Overall, not worth whatever price tag came with the CD at the time of its release, and not worth the nearly 70 minutes it takes to slog through it.

Despised Icon The Ills of Modern Man4.0
Not nearly as scattershot as their debut, nor as occasionally monochromatic as "The Healing Process," there wasn't really much chance the follow-up would be any better, either (and it isn't). "The Ills of Modern Man" is the jewel in Despised Icon's crown and by far their most crushing, cohesive, inventive, and engaging record, not to mention some of the best music to rep the "deathcore" tag. Highly recommended.

Korn Follow the Leader3.0
Typical of any Korn album, "Follow the Leader" is noticeably lopsided, with its first half loaded with the good stuff. That dichotomy is more apparent here than perhaps anywhere else in Korn's now extensive discography, because the streak of songs from "It's On!" through "Children of the Korn" is some of the band's very best material, rivaling even the self-titled's genre-spawning first half. Unfortunately, Jon's contribution of an annoying melody on "B.B.K" is symptomatic of the album's main issue: Jon. He ruins, or at least severely undercuts, a lot of quality riffing on tracks like "B.B.K" and the punky "Reclaim My Place" with his pre-vocal-lesson whine and some atrocious lyricism, "Pretty" and the better-not-discussed "All in the Family" being the worst offenders. His trademark scatting is also electronically tampered with on a couple of cuts toward the end, needlessly bloating track lengths or derailing atmosphere. Despite its issues (the superior album, by the way), "Follow the Leader" can be great fun every once in a while, and redeems itself with the creepy-amusing "Cameltosis" and "My Gift to You," the last of Korn's truly great Epic Album Closers. I recommend this for the first five songs and anyone who can stomach "Wait! I've got some shit to say!" as a prechorus, and the power to ignore the existence of Jon's "rap" battle with Fred Durst.

"Cultivate" is a wonderful song, the solo on "Coal" is pretty good, and the massive "L.D. 40," which splices together the interludes on Mudvayne's full-length debut and nu-metal landmark "L.D. 50" is interesting, but the rest of the material on this repackaged demo is painfully embryonic. I don't have the heart to call it a cash-grab, although that may be exactly the case, so I'll call it a gift to Mudvayne completionists. If such a thing exists.

Huge surprise. It's "guess the nu-metal band" throughout, which is both its greatest strength and weakness, playing off the nostalgia of listening to whatever bands the songs recall - be it Slipknot, Deftones, Nothingface, Linkin Park, Sevendust, Limp Bizkit, Korn, etc. The band is clearly having fun reveling in (scratching on "Spit Not Chewed") and occasionally updating (the latter half of "You All Know Better Than Me") this old sound, and that enthusiasm coupled with their energy makes for a fun, cohesive record. Very well done.

Sick drummer and a sound so tight and calculated, it's a little disappointing. This album could have stood for a more experimentation along the lines of the very interesting "We Wish Death," which while overlong, is the undisputed highlight of the record for its meandering back-end.

Great record full of grindy, zero-fat metalcore. "Black Den" and "One Constant Volume"
showcase some surprising but welcome bluesiness in their riffs and groove before the album
stops dead for "Cables Hum Overhead." Vaguely industrial and highly repetitive, it would
benefit from swapping places with "Dim Light District," which would maintain the build-up of
"Black Den" and enhance the pay-off in "Citizen," one of the record's most balls-out tracks.
Despite that one issue, "Left in Kowloon" is vicious, no-frills shit, worth the 26 minutes
it takes to play it through.

I wasn't big on Dan Tompkins-era Tesseract, and I'm not big on him in Skyharbor, either. His tone and range do nothing for me, and as mentioned in the review, he almost never shuts up, bringing down some quality instrumentals. Despite him, the rest of the band is so cohesive that I can't give this any less than a 3. Future listens might reveal whatever I'm missing, but for now, this isn't quite the djent/prog masterpiece the hype makes it out to be.

Sworn In The Death Card2.5
One of the most frustrating records I've ever come across. I dig their take on Slipknot-influenced metalcore (earning it a spot in the budding "nu-metalcore" scene) because when it works, it works. "Hypocrisy" is a good tone-setter, and "Snake Eyes" is a hell of a track.rBut for every nu-metal trait Sworn In successfully incorporates, they stumble over a dozen others and never recover. The "crazy" lyrics and enunciation on "Mindless" are cringe-worthy. The occasional Corey Taylor-ish rap-screaming is interesting, but crops up in the most inappropriate spots. The vocalist's "tough guy" lows sound forced and airy; you can imagine him puckering his lips, straining for Vincent Bennett's anger and coming up woefully short. Garbage lyrics. Breakdowns.rStill, "The Death Card" has a lot of potential: check the borderline chaotic section partway through the aforementioned "Snake Eyes" and the atmosphere and cohesion attempted on the album's handful of interludes. The last track, "Return (Heartless)," almost achieves a sense of doom, if not for the awful lyrics. I'll keep an eye on Sworn In, but they're going to have to either take a scalpel to their sound or fire their vocalist.

I've been experimenting with this album in Audacity. Removing 90% of the breakdowns brings this up nearly a full star, since most follow nearly identical patterns and seriously hamper the band's momentum. Seriously, The Air I Breathe could have been something else entirely if they didn't shoot their grooves in the foot multiple times per song with what sounds like the same breakdown played at varying speed. As it is, it's still a solid listen that manages to surpass most of Rise's roster, and a somewhat less solid recommendation.

Sonically dark and brutal without being especially corny or br00tal, it's the awfully-written lyrics that weigh this down, as well as some breakdown fatigue on initial listens. Otherwise, this is a strong debut that leans a little more heavily on the "death" end of deathcore than similar bands: see the skull-crushing "Building and Breaking Bridges" and the wailing lead on "Through His Eyes," then check "Still Breathing" for one of the finest closers in the subgenre.

Sharper, harder, more varied, and better-paced than Masstaden (no "Benblast" + "Ostpeppar" to kill the flow of the album), this is a delicious little EP by the only "djent"-tag band you should be paying any attention to. Their next full-length is going to level cities.
