1 for 2 ain't bad... Born Of Osiris is the other one. The new Winds Of Plague is pretty meh overall, easily the worst thing they have ever done.

I am actually gonna listen to all the albums you put up . I never actually gave deathcore a good listen, I just hate all the negativity that comes up every time its brought up.

10.) SPEAKER OF THE DEAD


Didn't see that coming. Or maybe you did. In any case, here's my interesting backwards argument for this album:

For a long time, I hated Emmure. I remember watching one of their old videos, going, "why do all these guys dress like [insert accidental racist slip here]?" And I didn't dig the speak-then-scream vocal style of Thanos. Anyway, last year, I had a friend on facebook who kept telling me to listen to this album. I refused for a long time. A looooong time. Then after reading a hilarious metalsucks article about how ridiculous the lyrics are, I decided to give it a shot.

What I didn't expect was me liking it. Right from the opening breakdown of "Children of Cybertron", I found myself oddly intrigued. Why? After careful observation, meditation, and reflection, It's due to a couple reasons:

1.) Mindless groove breakdowns. Sometimes, that's all my ear wants to hear, and Emmure delivers that. Screw solos, technicality, and substance! I can't listen to Obscura all day, dammit!

2.) It's music for a specific mood. Mainly, for working out. I find this to be a great album to jog to; it's got that perfect balance of tempo and groove that keeps me going.

3.) I find it funny. From Transformers, to Street Fighter, to Alien Abductions, to "Drug Dealer Friend" where the only lyrics are I WANNA WATCH YOU SUCK HIS DICK... BITCH, it's got a certain charm to it for me. I don't know why. I don't take it seriously. But it's just fun for me to throw on once in a while.

Examples:
Children of Cybertron
Drug Dealer Friend
Demons With Ryu


So do you guys agree with me, or do you AGREE with me???

Exactly. Don't expect Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, or After The Burial in this list, since I don't consider them deathcore.

I've actually heard songs from this album and it is probably the worst deathcore I've ever heard. No joke.

jd, I hate you.
