I feel that Chon expertly expanded their sound and it made a very mature and well written album coming from such a young band. I hope they create another album with such intensity.

August Burns Red Rescue & Restore
With the rise of metalcore acts like Memphis May Fire, Miss May I, Emmure, and plenty of other generic breakdowns with a title, August Burns Red finally make a record that stands out from the pack. While at the forefront of the genre in 2009 with Constellation, 2011's Leveler showed a group ready to break free of their restraints but too timid to commit to the experimentation they were attempting. With Rescue and Restore, the band opens the door for the next stage of their careers. The addition of brass instruments somehow shows a completely new side of the group, ready to actively enhance their songwriting capabilities. My favorite song on the record, "Beauty in Tragedy," has possibly the best lyrics Jake Luhrs has ever written. While future releases show some experimentation and a willingness to continue to press the genre forward, ABR might never be able to recreate a metalcore powerhouse like this record again.

This album is a hidden gem among a sea of generic screamo bands. The ferocity on this album, the moments of beauty that give you a break from the soaring guitars, breakneck drumming, and screams that have so much heartbreak and loss. The songwriting is great, with songs gliding between sections effortlessly. This is not for everyone, but it's a great album. More than worth a listen, imo.

Refused The Shape Of Punk To Come
When I was much younger, I was a die hard punk and metal fan. If it wasn't a four piece band with just guitars, bass and drums, it was just bad music. Hearing "The Shape of Punk to Come" for the first time, I hated it. How could they call this punk? It had electronic elements and while indeed heavy at times, was never "heavy enough." As I have mellowed out and enjoyed a wider variety of music, this album has become a staple in my life. It's an incredibly inventive and innovative record, and its influence can still be felt to this day. It is a must listen.

Not an album where one song is the standout, but a complete piece of musical expression to explain why the group is no longer with us, and to stop any speculation from fans. I think the fact the album is the minimum length the label wanted helps trim any fat off this project, giving only the most raw, emotional performances Kevin Abstract has ever given.

The anger of this record at the state of the world and, specifically, the U.S.A., is palpable. 'Why' is one of the most infuriating songs I've heard in a long while. While there is nothing "new" in this record, it's an incredibly well-written and thought provoking record.

Heaven and Hell The Devil You Know
One of heaviest and bittersweet send offs to the king himself. Dio kills it on this record, his voice more powerful than ever while fighting the cancer that would eventually take him from us. Tony Iommi has put out riffs that rival anything he has put out since the late 70's. Bass is simple but adds a lot of depth, and the drumming is solid. Regardless, Iommi and Dio have created an incredible debut and final album for Heaven and Hell.

Album rips. Does it change the genre and completely revitalize it? No. It's a hardcore record through and through, but the songwriting is strong and the riffage is constantly gnarly. I recommend listening to Echo of Nothing into Host/Parasite to see Incendiary at their best. Anything new from Incendiary is an event, and this is no different. Every window deserves a brick!

The Chariot Long Live
The Chariot One Wing
For an album officially 10 years old, the staying power of the Chariot's One Wing is immense. It is still one fo the more dissonant and dense records of the 2010's, and one of my personal favorites. The more I have listened to it, the more I find something to appreciate. Whether it be the guitar work, the steady rhythm section, or Scogin's vocals that feel as if he is gargling razorblades, this record RIPS.

This is the most solid punk album in decades. The Australian blokes are not reinventing the wheel, but god damn did I have a great time listening to this. Better than their debut and EPs, while adding a few new ideas into the mix. If you want solid, heart-pumping, meat and potatoes punk, these guys got your back.

Good debut. The album is at it's best when it leans more heavily into the Native American instrumentation, but it does have relentless blast beats and shredding guitars. Production is better than most black metal record. Will be keeping my eye out for their next release.

Chelsea Grin My Damnation
I was a huge Chelsea Grin fan nearly 10 years ago now (begin existential crisis), but have continually struggled to return to the albums I used to love. (i)My Damnation(i) has aged poorly and only has a few moments of true inspiration, and Ashes to Ashes feels like (i)The Discovery(i) lite. This is a unique experience compared to the rest of the 2010s deathcore. The use of black metal influences and atmosphere have helped this album age incredibly well for a record I thought was worse than their earlier releases, even just a couple years ago.

Deafheaven Roads to Judah
The vibe of the album is incredible. Everything feels very chill. The transitions from a
more mellow tempo to the breakneck speed that Domi and JD are known for are very natural and
none feel the same. Was hoping for a more instrumental album, but the vocals aren't terrible
(with features from Anderson Paak. and Thundercat, how can you fuck it up?). Speaking of
features, everyone who appears on the record adds an interesting spin to the songs they
appear on. The bass from Thundercat on "Bowling" and "Not Tight" is awesome, Herbie
Hancock's solo on "Moon" is mind-boggling, and Anderson Paak. makes each song a bop. Idk
what else to say other than this is a promising debut and hoping for more sooner rather than

After listening to it a few more times, this EP is pretty good. Their LP was a fun listen but after a while it got repetitive. This breaks up the formula a little bit and allows Tyler Carter to show how smooth his voice is. Overall, not great, but a great break from constant chugging and disc jockey nonsense.

Super catchy mix of folk and indie rock. There are some stylistic choices I'm not the hugest fan of (Autotune used on the vocals in Traffic! is my least favorite moment on the album), but when she focuses on bouncy choruses with quirky lyrics, the album is a lot of fun.

honestly some of the nastiest hardcore I've heard in a while. Vocalist has always been

installed a wood chipper in his throat.

Edit: While they aren't doing anything new or super innovative, the production and delivery
of each song is so vile and disgusting that I can't help but want to smash something. Just
pure intensity.

Would i recommend this to my friends who listen to metal regularly? Absolutely not. BUT I did recommend this to my "normie" friends and nearly all of them have at least given this a few more listens than anything else I have recommended them. So it's a good gateway album. It is catchy enough that I haven't fully put it down yet. It is still over processed, with cringey lyrics, and a vocalist that seems determined to say some words just different enough that I'm annoyed occasionally.

Vildhjarta Måsstaden Under Vatten
Look...I have been waiting for another Vildhjarta for YEARS, and it's finally here.'s too fucking long. I have always had an issue with double albums, as they take what you like about an artist and then ask you to wait twice as long for the usual 5 - 6 good songs. But now, you have to trudge through nearly 2 hours for only about 20-30 minutes of actually distinct songs that I can actually name. On a positive note, the songwriting through it strong. These guys know how to make the most off kilter music without it feeling disjointed and like a wall of noise. There are enjoyable moments, I just can't make the commitment this album asks for on a regular basis.

The two to three actually entertaining songs on this record did not warrant an album release with Radiohead's weakest material to date.

Suicide Silence No Time to Bleed
Thantifaxath Hive Mind Narcosis
Look, I cannot for the life of me explain why, but this album isn't working for me. I loved
Sacred White Noise and Void Masquerading as Matter, but this one just feels either
incomplete or bloated. There are moments where I am immersed in the music, but I can't help
but be uninterested most of the time. I have listened to it like 6 times, trying to love it.
I wish I could give a definitive answer as to what's wrong.
Veil of Maya [m]other
This album is fine, but it is Veil of Maya on autopilot. They have essentially made AI music without even having to go to the AI program. On first listen, it feels like there is substance and ingenuity, a hint of something new that could reinvigorate their sound from the lazy False Idols; in reality, there is a strong lack of progression, and a staggering amount of riffs that feel outdated and lazy. While not necessarily bad or boring, I'm disappointed that the band who put out Common Man's Collapse, [id], Eclipse, and Matriarch is now too scared to change their sound once again. If I wanted to listen to metalcore from 2016, I will listen to their earlier output, not this.

2.0 poor
Born of Osiris Tomorrow We Die Alive
I've tried coming back to this record a few times, and every time it is increasingly underwhelming compared to The Discovery. Just generic breakdown, with the overuse of synths to try and improve consistently poor songwriting. I know these guys are talented and Jason Richardson wasn't the driving force of the band, but it is hard to look past in massive downgrade in the bands creativity. Was a 3 when I was 16, but time has slowly turned this is a 2.
