Actually I know a bunch of grindcore fans who claim that The Red Chord should have broken up after that album because everything after sucked.

Hmmm...I've never cared for these guys, BUT, I will give this album a chance. I've already heard a couple of songs off of it so far and it isn't too bad so far...
Anywho I really wanna know what the next 3 are

Definitely check it out!

Damn, I gotta write #3 real quick in between matches of the DOTA 2 International tournament! I'm following this closer than I would march madness!

I think y'all gonna like #3, also.

These Brit or Aussie accents on the commentators are brutal. I can't understand half of what they're saying. Doesn't help that I'm not really up to speed on all the terminology in DOTA.

Back on topic; I actually really enjoyed The Red Chord's Fed Through The Teeth Machine from 2009 as well.

3.) THE PRICE OF EXISTENCE


I think you all knew this was gonna be here, but if you didn't know, take notes. This album is fucking incredible. From the blistering opening riff of "Eradication" to the almost serene ending of "The Last Relapse", there is not one bad or mediocre song on this album. This right here is the deathcore for metalheads album.

First of all, their style of deathcore is unique. You can tell that the guys in this band are musicians, and create music for musicians first of all, rather than focusing on being brootal or moshworthy. The riffs aren't far cries from tech death or melodeath bands, and the breakdowns are all very tastefully done. They have the perfect technical/brootal ratio, which is pure musical porn to me.

The thing is, its hard for me to say, "listen to this song or that song", since this album is bursting at the seams with incredible material. "Wage Slaves", "The Day of Justice", "There is No Business to be Done on a Dead Planet", "Better Living Through Catastrophe", "We Hold These Truths...", The True Beast"- the list keeps going. I think that's the primary reason why this album vaults above the other deathcore bands out there to earn a top 3 spot in my list: its an amazing album, front to back, that never bores me. Not many bands acieve that in my mind.

Take "There is No Business to be Done on a Dead Planet": it displays all the amazing elements of All Shall Perish in a single package. Opening with a blistering, technical, must-headbang-NOW riff, it builds up the song perfectly in true death metal fashion at 100 miles an hour up until 1:20, where the song absolutely comes crashing down in an amazingly well written breakdown. One of those good galloping, triplet-based breakdowns, too. But it doesn't let up there- they build upon the breakdown every couple measures, adding a technical twist here, a weedly guitar solo there, and before you know it, the riff is swirling back and forth through your head in an excellent display of musicianship. That is how you write a sick breakdown in deathcore.

Other hits include songs like "The True Beast", opening with a very, very metal riff and rather funny pig squeal, into probably the heaviest song of the album. The transitions between technical fast part -> breakdown/groovy riff are flawless, and almost undetectable unless you're listening for them. It always fits perfectly, and the riffs never feel recycled or old. "We Hold These Truths" opens with a great technical guitar part, and builds into a breakdown also that doesn't feel forced or out of place. It's rather melodic, too. "Better Living Through Catastrophe" is a beautifully somber song at the beginning and end, showing off the more melodic and musical sides of deathcore. The solos and riffs are, again, amazing in this one. And don't even get me started on how perfect the opening riff to "Wage Slaves" is...

In the end, this is a deathcore album for metalheads. It's perfectly written, even though the solos could be a little better executed/more technical. The riffs make this album awesome, and they never get old. I love it. It totally deserves a top 3 spot in any deathcore list, ever, and in case you didn't get the message by now:

LISTEN TO THIS GODDAMN ALBUM!

Notable Tracks:
There Is No Business To Be Done on a Dead Planet
The True Beast
Better Living Through Catastrophe
We Hold These Truths...
