Huge surprise. The band is clearly having fun in a way they didn't, or couldn't, with previous efforts. That enthusiasm, coupled with their youthful, punky energy, makes for a fun and cohesive record. Extremely well done.

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.

Improves with each listen. Nothing groundbreaking, but tightly and consistently written, with shades of Fear Before circa "Odd How People Shake" a welcome addition to their tough-as-nails take on metalcore. It's a shame the've long since disbanded.

Chimaira Crown Of Phantoms
Mark Hunter's average presence used to hold Chimaira back, especially on the self-titled and its follow-up, but he's stepped up in a big way. Replacing the entire band with members of Daath really mitigates the issue of Hunter's performance. "The Machine" is among Chimaira's best openers and the title track features some of the strongest synergy the band has ever seen. "Crown of Phantoms" is one of the most pleasant surprises of 2013 from a band I didn't think had it in them.

Despised Icon The Ills of Modern Man
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.

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.

I was expecting something much harsher from the cover art and what I remembered of Leading Vision, the only other Gorod album I've listened to and which I was thought was pretty manic and excellent. I was taken aback by the more methodical nature of these songs and the pleasant, jazzier elements others have noted, but also a bit disappointed by the lack of immediacy across the album - I haven't been following their progression as a band, but this feels like a safe album, and sometimes even a familiar one.

"Blast Inc." is probably the most fun any band has had playing music this year, but Viscera would benefit overall from just a little more professionalism. The shorter songs are tightly written but feel undeveloped, the longer songs meander, and while it seems pedantic to say so, the fact is that the production is sometimes a bit too clean even for a "joke" black metal project. Viscera is enjoyable but all too easy to tune out.

Just as with the rest of Revocation's discography, I can recognize that these guys have serious chops and great writing on a song-to-song basis, but a full album is still a chore to listen to. While there are some stand-out grooves and solo work to appreciate, it's generally a blur I struggle to finish. I can say I like this one more than "Deathless," but it's a marginal difference.

Korn Follow the Leader
"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.

Mudvayne The Beginning of All Things to End
"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.

Sworn In The Death Card
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.

The Weeknd Beauty Behind the Madness
It's catchy but as far removed from The Weeknd's previous work as Kiss Land from House of Balloons, maybe signifying some sort of progression in sound - but this is all smoke. 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." After "The Hills," what little personality peeks out between the shiny studio beats drains fast, and it's all downhill to the unadulterated cheese of "Prisoner" and "Angel."

Carach Angren Death Came Through a Phantom Ship
Coal Chamber Giving The Devil His Due
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.
King 810 Memoirs of a Murderer
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.
