20:57 - !J.O.O.E.! I had a feeling it was going to be good just by the cover art.
19:36 - mz that sounds sth made specificly for me, given my love for virus and AT :D sounds excellent indeed
18:05 - LuciferOfGayness The step from Bal-Sagoth to CoF is small so better go Cruelty and the Beast with CoF for the ultimate PM/BM experience
18:03 - !J.O.O.E.! Is the last one similar style? Am on my second play of the new one, and it's currently the joint second best thing I've heard this year, though it could end up on top. Its quality is through the roof.
17:59 - togo95 yup, already the previous record by Pogavranjen was great and this one is even better.
Writing a review for August Burns Red is a bit of a challenge. It's not so much that their sound is difficult to describe. Rather, the group's extremely consistent output of technically-inclined metalcore lends itself to redundancy from reviewing one album to the next. But while it may not be the band's best album (an accolade I award to Constellations), Rescue And Restore is definitely their most melodic and different.
I've been a fan ever since I first heard the greatness of Constellations, and then picked up Messengers. Leveler was just alright for me, but I'm looking forward to hearing this record, I'm sure it will be great.
It is rare for a straight-up metalcore album to be good these days. August Burns Red is really the last of these groups I think can still bring it (now that As I Lay Dying is dead). This is their most melodic album yet, too.
