Ok gentlemen, if anyone should be critiquing this new album, it's me, the deathcore guy, since I'm a fan of their music, especially No Time To Bleed. I thought the production and songwriting were stellar for their genre of music.

That being said, I wonder how much of that was attributed to Machine being the producer for NTTB. Machine took their potential and made it great, just as he did to Lamb of God back in 2004. My thoughts:

1.) Musically, this has some potential. The one song I've heard so far was very "riffy" versus "chuggy", which I like. It had a solid solo in it too. If the rest of the album follows this model, it could be good.

2.) Man, those song titles are bad. Like, really bad. I don't like that direction they're taking. "Fuck Everything"? really? Any band that makes a song title with "fuck" in it just isn't creative.

3.) Frank Mullen appearance = fantastic. If deathcore bands should be paying tribute to anyone, it's bands like Suffocation and Dying Fetus. I'm sure it'll be solid. Whitechapel had an absolutely fantastic guest appearance from Chino Moreno on their last album; I'm all for guest stars.

4.) Production-wise, it's way too clean for their sound. I really enjoyed The Cleansing for what it was: dirty, garage-sounding, downtuned instruments being hit as hard as they can. I appreciated that muddiness in their music because it made them unique from other deathcore bands. And for what it was, they wrote great riffs. I know probably no one here will agree with me there, but I don't really care. I got into Suicide Silence back in the day before I
really knew what the whole deathcore scene was, and the negative connotations it held. I didn't know people dressed that way, were that young, and were so conceited. It was loud, fast, and low, an it had groove to it. I liked it.

Granted, The Cleansing was far from being a cohesive record. All the songs sounded really similar, weren't structured very well, and dragged on. There were way too many tracks on the record, too. NTTb kept that gritty, muddy sound, but improved the songwriting to condense the tunes. They didn't drag on, the riffs grabbed your face, and held it there for the right amount of time. It was catchy. It was also a notch louder than all the other metal on my iPod, production-wise. In other words, it was perfect brainless music for running with my iPod in.





In the end: will it be a bad record? Probably not. Will it be a good record? Probably not. The only truly excellent deathcore record I see coming out this year is the new All Shall Perish; they're looking really solid. As for Suicide Silence? It seems as if they've decided what they want their image to be, and aren't sticking to the sound I like from them. Meh.

I agree with everything JD said. Haters gonna hate, but I like Deathcore as well. Not all of it, but pretty similar to JD's deathcore tastes.

Thanks. For me, the "good" deathcore bands are All Shall Perish, Acacia Strain, Whitechapel, EARLY Winds of Plague, and Suicide Silence. And The Red Chord and later Job For A Cowboy, but those really aren't deathcore. I could write pages on why it's those bands, but I won't right now

Bands like Oceano, Carnifex, Chelsea Grin, Rose Funoral, I Declare War... very shitty and unoriginal.
