Original Score: 3.5

A disappointing but still valiant effort. The only issue with the record is the songwriting
has taken a small step backwards. The majority of Awakened can't replicate the
heights that the instrumentation and vocal hooks achieved on their two previous releases. I
Lay Dying have by no means crafted a bad record but in comparison to their best work,
Awakened falls short.

Edit: Album has since grown immensely on me.

Gojira L'Enfant Sauvage
Original Rating: 4

L`Enfant Sauvage unfortunately falls JUST short of its predecessors. While the songs here
are magnificent, Gojira`s mannerisms are starting to wear thin. Often you will hear the
familiar pick slide, pinch harmonics, and their distinct tapping style. This familiarity, at
times, can make certain riffs/structures seem formulaic in nature. On top of that, the riffs
and overall guitar work is less memorable than what they`ve conveyed in the past.

Mostly gone are the guttural vocals found on "From Mars to Sirius". Joe now favors a style
somewhere in between shouting and singing(comparable to choruses found on "The Way of All
Flesh"). Whilst Joe's vocals carry more impact than ever, I would have liked to see more of
the range he explored on the aforementioned album. The drum work is interesting as always.
As a result of the toned down guitar work, Mario's technical prowess moves even further into
the forefront. "Mouth of Kala" is proof that he has never sounded more massive behind the

Gojira have created an album that new fans will gush over. Older Gojira aficionados will
notice trademark consistencies that may hinder their experience slightly. The band have
sacrificed a small amount of their brutality and technicality with each release in purpose
of crafting more dynamic music. Despite your feelings on the bands direction, the material
found on L'Enfant Sauvage is no doubt some of the best of 2012!

TesseracT Perspective
Reference: One - 4.5

Elliot's voice takes center stage here due to the toned down nature of the instrumentation.
While Elliot proves he is an excellent vocalist, he falls short of Dan's ability. Elliot has
an awkward cadence about him when he lets his voice get out of control. This flaw is most
evident on the beginning of "Perfection" and ending of "Dream Brother". Elliot shines on
"Origin". His voice soars over the superb musicianship, adding a depth to the song I haven't
experienced before. As a whole, I find this interpretation of "Origin" surpasses the quality
of the version found on One. Unfortunately Elliot lacks the impact needed for more
chaotic sections/songs. Moments of "April" and the Majority of "Eden 2.0" exemplify this
issue. The replacement did a fantastic job with Dan's work, but we will see Elliot's
potential come to fruition with new material.

Voices from the Fuselage To Hope
Upon first exposure, listeners will be immediately reminded of One era TesseracT.
Later, it becomes evident that slight stylistic differences exist between the bands, but
measuring those deviations almost seems over-analytical. Like TesseracT, Voices from the
Fuselage are more focused on ambient passages and songwriting than the average polyrhythmic
band. Voices from the Fuselage have crafted four excellent songs that TesseracT fans will
feel right at home with.

Alaya's sonic stamp lays somewhere between Djent and the Tech Metal scene. The vocal ability is the standout feature of the Album. The frontman's clean's are expressed passionately and retain a level of grit that many progressive singers lack. The instrumentation is no doubt played with precision and executed skillfully, but further refinement to their songwritting and structure would go long way to improving their craft.

Liam's vocals are uncharacteristically good on this release. He uses a ton of variation and
has created many fun, catchy, choruses. The guitarist writes some pretty awesome riffs, but
I'd like to see him inject more complexity into his playing. The drum work is passable, but
nothing overly interesting. It's a shame because the percussion is extremely well produced
and punchy. Although "Dead Set on Living" is a continuation the same record written their
entire career, the refinement and song writing on this release keep the experience from
becoming stale. No filler here; Best Cancer Bats album to date!

Coheed and Cambria The Afterman: Descension
Original Score: 3

Although there are standout moments on the record, the latter half is plagued with average
instrumentation and somewhat forgettable songwriting. The dialogue intermissions, are
largely devoid of musicianship and seem tacked on.

Lyrically, the album is guilty of both pretentious tendencies and triumphant story telling.
A coherent and admittedly interesting story can be followed here, but the vocalist awkwardly
and tirelessly forces "love"(the album's theme) down the throat of the listener.

While Coheed and Cambria have crafted a decent collection of songs, I hesitate to
reciprocate the same appraisal for the entire album experience. This record is heavily
predicated on story telling. Musically, the weaker content should be left off. Conceptually,
that practice would gape the story experience.

Devil Sold His Soul Empire of Light
Edit: I have revisited this album a year later and have come to conclusion that my original
soundoff should be complete redacted. I can't believe how wrong I was about this record.


Despite the lad's input, the outcome is uninteresting. Devil Sold His Soul's previous
outings displayed a masterful blend of ferocity and beauty. Empire of Light still
retains many of the band's trademarks, but is watered down to the point of no longer
adequately representing their aforementioned "yin and yang" like qualities. The root of this
misstep is the lack of balance. Meandering vocal melodies, tame atmospherics, and monotonous
guitar work, litter the majority of the album's duration. Although these cleaner passages
had proven to be an asset in the past, moderation was the foundation of that success.
Unfortunately Devil Sold His Soul have focused all of their attention on the poorest aspect
of their sound and consequently have alienated their uniquity.
