I don't know where the guy writing the other review got off calling these guys death metal-they're metalcore, straight and simple. And what great metalcore it is! Constitution Of Treason is a fantastic album. I can't decide whether this or Gone Forever is their best release, but you can't go wrong either way. This album, in particular, has a change in Byron Davis' vocals, and seems more melodic. The guitar solos are fantastic, as they have always been.

Byron Davis' new vocals are more pronounced and less throaty, adn they sound fantastic. The lyrics, as always, are amazing. Look at "Crucify Your Beliefs" for a perfect example-"Your ultimate sacrifice is your ultimate sin." Byron Davis' skills as a singer/screamer and a lyricist, in my humble opinion, are unparalled in the metalcore genre.
Overall Impression — 10
Constitution Of Treason only compares to Gone Forever, as they are both the greatest metalcore albums I own. I listen to Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Shadows Fall, and Lamb Of God, and both of my God Forbid albums destroy them. Chains Of Humanity, To The Fallen Hero, Crucify Your Beliefs, and the title track are sure to please the fans. If stolen, I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
