12:36 - RavenEffect ofc, MS is where all eyes are when it comes to independent online reviews.
12:09 - Marcel Hubregtse "Their sophomore record “Withered Shades” (2010) was praised by the press as one of the best Death/Doom records of the past decade and even won the 2nd place in Metalstorm’s “best extreme Doom album award”, "
12:09 - Marcel Hubregtse Taken from the Ophis infosheet/biography accompanying their upcoming album...
11:15 - Redn1ght Oh wow. xD Must've made people rage in the comments. (Btw, Metallica is now a better cover band than an actual band. Just saying.)
11:00 - Zaphod [link] Wow, shameless cashgrab... Oh, Red, I forgot you only registered last year. Yeah, it was funny seeing a 2.0 review on the front with that shit-ugly cover art.
10:55 - Redn1ght Yep. :P But as far as I can remember seeing it. That would've been funny to see. @Lulu.

I'd like to think that 'Daybreaker' features the best of both worlds-those worlds being the band's previous two albums, 'Hollow Crown' and 'The Here and Now'. Sam Carter's vocals aren't that effective but they add to the raw emotions and true feelings of the music itself. This isn't emo in my opinion. This is very (sometimes) atmospheric hardcore. It suits some people, but not others.
First album I listened to from this band. Blends a lot of genres I like. Reminds me of Amia Venera Landscape
This is the only album from them like this.
The previous one is pure modern post-hc (afaik, I haven't listened to it) and anything before it is a sort of mathcore/tech metalcore similiar to the harsh sections heard on this album.
And this is quite delicious indeed. I decided to grab it anyways and I was surprised how addictive this is. Only fault I can find is that there are too many soft songs that don't work as well as they could.
For those who enjoyed this album, I recommend checking out "Discoveries" by Northlane and "Impulse" by Erra, both are mathcore/technical metalcore bands with melodic guitarwork and are great albums both.
