The Black Dahlia Murder Abysmal4.0
Abysmal is just about the smoothest album the Black Dahlia Murder has released since Nocturnal, blending the minimal experimentation of Rituals and the darkly refined textures of Everblack. Although the band has never strayed too far from their core sound, they're almost (paradoxically) a different band now - not just leaning toward death metal, but full-blown, fully-committed, and hungry death metal.
Travis Scott Rodeo3.5
The Weeknd Beauty Behind the Madness2.5
I can't, in good conscience, rate this any higher. It's catchy, and tonally as far removed from all of his previous work as Kiss Land from House of Balloons, maybe signifying some sort of progression in sound - but this is all smoke. The facts are that The Weeknd has never been this corny or forgettable - even the mediocre tracks on Kiss Land have greater replay value than something as asinine as "Dark Times" and especially "Angel." The former is an Ed Sheeran b-side that rejects Tesfaye's presence from every possible angle, rendering his a stranger on his own record; "Angel" is unadulterated cheese, perhaps the single most groan-inducing track to ever sustain his talent. After The Hills, what little personality peeks out between the shiny studio beats and artificial lyrics drains so quickly and so completely that Acquaintance doesn't even have the decency to use its own chorus melody - it is quite literally The Hills', slowed down and hardly in a different key. Only Tell Your Friends begins to approach The Weeknd's once-lofty heights, thanks to a Kanye-produced beat that understands Tesfaye is best when allowed to explore his range over a minimally-intrusive beat. It smartly keeps out of his way and even drops out for a while, leaving only a faintly throbbing bass for support. It's the same ethic by which HoB's the morning succeeded, and from which The Weeknd's next batch of producers could stand to learn.

It doesn't have the distressing aura of evil that surrounds "Massive Conspiracy Against All Life," but it's far and away the most visceral, refined - even elegant - thing to come out of Wrest's discography, standing toe-to-toe with that album in every other regard.

In a global sense, "Citadel" is an improvement over "Portal of I" in songwriting, technicality,
and accessibility, although it lacks a central epic like "Forget Not" or "And Plague Flowers the
Kaleidoscope." Still, I'll take consistent excellence over occasional brilliance.

Seriously, even the cover art is better.

King 810 Memoirs of a Murderer1.5
Everyone in King 8:10 is a passable instrumentalist and can come together to write catchy, simple breakdowns, which take the place of hooks, for better or worse, but an album of this sound just isn't feasible. "Take It" is probably the most notable song here, purely because it's so different, but it falls flat without context. "Memoirs of a Murderer" at least puts a bottom on the nu-metalcore barrel - it really can't get worse than this.

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 top 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 "okay," barring the hackneyed "Broken Cross," which brings the quality down significantly. Even so, this is the best Architects have sounded in a long time, and is fully deserving of the praise it receives.
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.

Sworn In The Death Card2.5
I dig Sworn In's take on Slipknotty metalcore in theory, because when it works, it really works: "Hypocrisy" and "Snake Eyes" are well-done, but for every nu-metal trait Sworn In successfully incorporates, they stumble over a dozen others. Tyler Dennen vacillates between airy and whiny, reaching unbearable extremes on "Mindless," and their attempts at brutality and atmosphere come off forced and insincere.

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.

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." "Still Breathing" is one of the finest closers in the subgenre.

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.

Grindy, zero-fat metalcore. "Black Den" and "One Constant Volume" rshowcase some surprising bluesiness before the album rstops dead for "Cables Hum Overhead." Vaguely industrial and highly repetitive, it would rbenefit from swapping places with "Dim Light District," which would maintain the build-up of r"Black Den" and enhance the pay-off in "Citizen," one of the record's most balls-out tracks. rDespite that one issue, "Left in Kowloon" is vicious, no-frills shit, worth the 26 minutes rit takes to play it through.

Coal Chamber Giving The Devil His Due1.5
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.

"Stigmurder," "Eyes of a Criminal," and "Implements of Destruction" are great songs, the latter verging on excellent, but they're not enough to elevate Chimaira's sophomore effort beyond average metalcore. It's an improvement on "Pass Out of Existence," at least.

"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/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.

Korn Follow the Leader2.5
"Follow the Leader" is about as lopsided as any Korn album, with all the good stuff jammed into the first half. It's more apparent here than anywhere else in Korn's discography, because the streak of songs from "It's On!" through "Children of the Korn" is some of the band's best material - unfortunately, Jon ruins, or at least severely hampers, a lot of quality riffing on tracks like "B.B.K" and "Reclaim My Place" with his untrained whine and atrocious lyrics, "Pretty" and "All in the Family" being the worst offenders.
