Dem. National Convention...

A taste as cold as the rockies! Anyways, this is just a list of albums I've purchased lately, some good, some not so great, some pre-ordered.
1Dance Gavin Dance
Dance Gavin Dance


The instrumentation is pretty much wonderful, very technical, but also very tastefully approached. Only gripe is the somewhat atrocious lyrical content in half of the songs, but the other half makes up for I think.
2Underoath
Lost In The Sound Of Separation


Its on pre-order so it should be here within a few days, but I have listened to mostly the whole thing here and there, and I have to say, its shaping up to be pretty great.
3Dance Gavin Dance
Downtown Battle Mountain


Listened to it a lot but never actually bought it until last week. The album as a whole sounds like a different band than the DGD of new, and for everything that seems lacking compared to the new album, there is always another aspect that makes up for it (Johnny Craig's vocals for instance)
4He Is Legend
91025


I thought their newest release was pretty alright, but the Southern Rock crap kind of got irritating after a bit...really irritating...I hope their new album goes back to the sound of their old stuff...its just more fun to listen to.
5Iwrestledabearonce
Iwrestledabearonce EP


Deathcore is a pretty stale genre, but there's just something about this that makes me want to like them...
6Thrice
The Illusion Of Safety


Vheissu was alright at best IMO. Sure, Image Of The Invisible was rockin' with its huge chorus and well placed gang shouts, but the rest of the album just seemed flat to me for the most part. I picked this up because I heard To Awake And Avenge The Dead a few months ago, and I have to say its quite excellent.
7Johnny Truant
In The Library Of Horrific Events


Haven't heard their new release but I quite enjoyed this album. On the surface it just seems like plain old stale metalcore, but if you really give it a chance its a really solid album. Plus Adam D. produced it, and IMO the man could make Miley Cyrus sound BA.
8Emarosa
Relativity


Just take Downtown Battle Mountain, and take out the element of fun...Sure Johnny's voice is still just as good as it ever was, but Emarosa just can't write decent songs to save their life (with the exception of one or two decent offerings)
9Minus The Bear
Planet Of Ice


Always been a fan of Menos El Oso (not the album I was making a Spanish joke), so I figured I'd give this one a spin or two. Quality stuff.
10Bomb The Music Industry!
Album Minus Band


Pretty much one of the most upbeat albums I've ever listened to, just an overall fun listen in general.
11I Am Terrified
I Am Terrified


Think if Every Time I Die, Underoath, and As Cities Burn had a baby. Sadly, that baby was homeschooled and his parents never checked up on his work, so to be honest he's pretty dull and stupid...
12Into Eternity
The Incurable Tragedy


I heard a few of their older songs somewhere and I thought it was decent enough. This album, however, should really be avoided like the plague...
13The Sound Of Animals Fighting
The Ocean And The Sun


All I can say is w00t!
14Bring Me The Horizon
Suicide Season


You can expect a very scathing review of this terrible piece of poppycock (using british slang since they are quite limey). Seriously though, they took everything that was enjoyable about their debut and apparently just said to themselves "yeah lets stop being at least a passable deathcore act!"
15DragonForce
Ultra Beatdown


I didn't actually buy it but I've listened to the whole thing. Sure its boring and tedious and samey and un-inventive and completely digitally enhanced and pretentious and stupid.......Honestly though it can be fun at the right moments, but only at those right moments. Like during a particularly hectic gaming session, or driving somewhere if you're late...
