5. MOTHER OF MERCY - IV: SYMPTOMS OF EXISTENCE
IV is Mother of Mercy's second full length LP, on Bridge 9 records. MoM are really, really unique for the hardcore scene today, a nice departure from the Madball, Hatebreed, or Bane worship you see everywhere. If this record was released on Metal Blade, and they had long hair and death metal shirts, Mother of Mercy would be hailed as an amazing metal band. As it is, IV is unlike any other hardcore albums out there right now. Highly recommend this to anyone who is more of a metal fan than hardcore. Another great young band out there (formed in 2007) that is making today's hardcore scene awesome to be a part of.
