Well that's kinda what I mean; there's so many cookie-cutter bands out there that you gotta dig deep to find something that sounds fresh and exciting.

mid-2000s was the peak of the genre imho

least they pretty much all knew how to use anything less than a 7-8 string guitar and write riffs in Drop C and up lol

It's because a lot of bands use them to mask their inability to write engaging music, they know they'll get the slam cucks on board so who cares about putting effort into it?

Also most of them have really obnoxious production to go along with it.

I'm also salty as fuck because it's difficult to find newer core bands that eschew that trend entirely.

I have to really reach to even name 10 that fit that criteria, which is unfortunate. I'd rather not be a hermit that only listens to 2000s core bands for my fix.

These guys aren't obnoxious and know how to write kickass music, so I give them a HARD pass on that one.

Disagree, this is almost as guilty as the heavy-for-the-sake-of-it bands out there. Verse to chorus to breakdown all through this with little effort made to sound different from peers. They even did the metalcore ballad trope. I was agreeing with you mostly until you praised these dudes.

There's quite a bit more going on here I feel. I notice a lot of nice lead parts and the production is pared back a bit.

the lead work and vocal performances pretty much save it for me, and the guitars aren't as tinny as some other albums I've heard in this wave.

Saying that those elements act to "save" the end result doesn't ring out like much of an endorsement imo, especially a 4.5. But, as the saying goes, to own their each. Or something like that.
