Review Summary: It Dies Today's second release is a great change in their music, bringing more melody in most of the songs
ok, i fixed this review up a little bit.
I must say, before i start this review... if you are a fan of breakdowns, then you will LOVE this album.
This is It Dies Today's second release. Their first being their popular Forever Scorned EP. Forever Scorned showed a brutal and heavy side of this band. With songs like "My Promise, The Depravity Waltz, and The Caitiff Choir: Revelations" The brutality of the band really shines with breakdowns filling in the songs. most other songs, such as "Severed Ties Yeild Severed Heads, A Therenody for Modern Romance, and Freak Gasoline Fight Accident," The songs still remain the heavy sound and the brutal breakdowns, but they also add melody and singing in the chorus' throughout the song. And with songs such as "The Radiance, Marigold, and Naenia" The screaming and breakdowns are gone and the entire song is melody and singing. The melodic songs are done very well, and are a nice transistion from the constant breakdowns and screaming. With three different styles of metal in one album, it proves to be an interesting listen.
Nicks voice is good in both screaming and singing. His screaming voice sounds forced, but it fits the music well. His singing voice sounds really nice when it is used, and its used at just the right time.
The guitars sound nice and heavy, and the double beat drums, when used, sound great and fit the song.
Nicks vocals are pretty well done
has both heavy and melodic songs
The songs with no melody (My Promise, The Depravitzy Waltz) are not as good as the songs with singing and melody
uh...wheres the bass"
well, this is one of my favorite albums, and probably one of the best metalcore albums out there.
