The new album from For Today is nothing short of an amazing repeat of last year's Portraits, this album is heavier more creative then the last. For Today has risen up from a small christian metalcore band to one of the heavy hitters among metalcore. This album is littered with breakdowns mesmerizing riffs and heavy hitting lyrics. Even for me an aithist are effected by the christian lyrics. This albums amazing guitar craftsman ship will leave you in awe. All the parts of key metalcore album are there.

I think that the first album they were saying what they stood for the second shows them spreading the word of god in powerful way and this album is basically what will happen when your a chirsitian or not thats what I got from them. The basic story that I got from them are the "Breaker" in the beginning is a troubled person with alot of problems goes on the path of sin then his rise to being a speaker of gods word.
Overall Impression — 9
It beats all previous from them and beats recent releases from Miss May I, and The Devil Wears Prada the overwhelming scream from Maddie just beats all he even does a new higher scream witch is pretty sick. The heaviest has to either: The Advocate, Kings, Or Sherephim. All have some of the best breakdowns in the album. I love almost everything about this album if I had one complaint is that the rapping needs to be a bit stronger. I would. Absolutely buy this amazing album!
