43.Born of Osiris-Tommorow We Die Alive

I was curious to see how Born of Osiris fared on their follow-up to The Discovery since lead guitarist/main reason the album was so special Jason Richardson had left the band and the answer is just fine for the most part. It's not quite as technical or interesting as what Richardson wrote on The Discovery, but there's still a lot of nice riffing/soloing and atmospheric guitar work from remaining guitarist Lee McKinney. The synths are also really cool and catchy and perfectly match the spacey vibe the rest of the band band lays down (when they're not rearing into dubstep territory like they do on "Divergency" and "Absolution"). It's not quite the powerhouse that The Discovery was, but Born of Osiris is still amongst the finest deathcore bands around.
