Metal Album Reviews[RSS]
To start off I would like to explain what this album is about. There is a book in the Bible called Revelation that is about the end of the world. This album from beginning to end is pretty much that book of the Bible. It even has characters and is very story like. Some people think that having two interludes in one album with only 10 tracks is too much, but if you think about the placement of them and what is going on lyrically then you wouldn’t want it any other way. It is hands down the most amazing album I have ever heard in my life. It has very good technicaly guitar parts that are very chaotic but seem to fit perfectly with the lyrics. That in combination with some of the best drumming on the planet makes this album instrumentally breathtaking. The vocals offer extremely good range from singing to screaming to low death metal growls. The album is very well thought out and fun to listen to. I have listened to it literally over hundred times in the last couple months and I have not yet gotten board with it and still find new interesting things that I didn’t notice before almost every time I hear it. I recommend this album to everyone no matter what you listen to.
I didn’t like this album at first and I absolutely hated Not One Word. When I listened to the album the first time, it just gave me a headache and I dismissed it as just harsh noise. But I did feel like the album was better than I thought. Mostly because I really enjoyed the intro and the way it blended so well with the first track. So I thought there was more to this album than I thought.
After a couple more listens I really grew into the music. Especially after listening to A Piece of History a few times. This is an excellent album. It’s very artistic and the lyrics are fantastic. In fact, I really enjoyed listening to the music while reading the lyrics.
Give it a couple of listens. If you can’t stand it after that, I wouldn’t bother trying to get into it. But if you do get into, you’ll see how creative and damn good the album is.
Okay, enough with my 1337 speak, now let’s get to the CD. This CD is amazing technical deathcore music. It tends to steer away from the more generic side of modern metalcore and blends in elements of early metalcore (think Converge or 7 Angels 7 Plagues), along with technical death metal and grindcore as well.
This is a great debut full-length for an up-and-coming band. For fans of bands like The Red Chord, Between The Buried and Me, Through The Eyes of the Dead, Animosity, Psyopus, Premonitions of War, and many more. Recommended.
alot of kids who were really into not one word (including me) didn’t really give this album the chance it deserves. it’s a really really good album every song is good except for the piano track ghosts over japan. these guys are incredibly talented and this album deffinetly shows that off. the guitar work has improved immensly, the drumming is still amazingly good, and the new singer is wwwwwaaaayyyy more diverse. his lows are way better and his singing voice is pretty good and his overall scream is good. if you’re not into it at first just give it a good uninterupted listen and then judge it. if you’re into ed gein, the red chord, ion dissonance, into the moat, the chariot then i recomend this album.
