3.5 greatTranqyl | September 5th 18

Haven't been this hard since we dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki

2.5 averagecharlie15 | September 18th 18

Mediocre at best. I hoped this would be a grower but it?s just boring and generic for the most part

3 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicRGconvictions | September 5th 18

The album is straight up on fire. They stepped it up on this one. But Anthem of the Defeated sounds off it doesn?t Fit in the album though it?s a banger. I still give it 5 even.

3.5 greatAmbushReality | September 19th 18

Its good, sure, but metalcore this derivative is not a 4.5, let alone a 5.

2 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentSlippinnDippin | September 13th 18

I got whiplash after listening to this album. Help. I can't afford this anymore.

1 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentcloakanddagger | September 13th 18

When I wrote the review for Slave to Nothing I thought that album was just gonna be a one-off and this band would sink back into mediocrity, but 4 years and 2 albums later Fit For a King are still proving themselves to be one of the best genericore bands around.

1 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicBlackTemplarofAutism | September 8th 20

Possibly the greatest metalcore release ever, and certainly in the past ten years. Uncompromisingly heavy it still manages to be melodic and exeptionally emotional.

Bump

4.0 excellentthatbandsucks | May 25th 20

This is the best it can get for Fit For A King and maybe even metalcore at this era in time. What I adore about this record is how vulnerable Kirby is with his lyrics and the album in general has this hopeless gloom to it. They only parts I couldn't vibe with was the slower timed slipknot esque attempts. But fortunately, all those tracks were only two minutes or so. Oblivion is probably the greatest ending to an album if I have ever heard one.

Bump

3.0 goodWeAreReturningHome | May 2nd 19

I feel like I should like this album more than I should but I feel like it's a step backwards from Deathgrip I mean did they really think Anthem of the Defeated was a good song lmao it doesn't sound like ffak and too many overused clean choruses in price of agony and oblivion :L

Bump

3.0 goodAlphaGoon | October 8th 18

A fine metalcore record that will mostly satisfy one's hunger for heaviness but that is predominately underwhelming when it comes to showcasing the instrumental prowess heard on the lead single Tower of Pain and parts of other songs. Also comes with a healthy dose of cheesy/cliche hooks and subpar lyrics.

Bump

3.5 greatItsTheSquirrel | September 22nd 18

The music is quite generic but still really good for the most part, but the lyrics are way too edgy on some tracks
