This possibly the greatest metal band out there. When I first listened to this I was blown away. It's a CD every metalhead should listen too, I found it randomly while listening through my friends stuff. This is some of the fastest music you'll hear, but it doesn't fail where most bands do.

Most metal bands seem to have a problem with singing/lyrics. Unearth does not, there is sometimes a desire to understand what is being said, but that's only because the lyrics are so good. Unlike other metal bands, this isn't a CD about killing yourself, or killing other people, or hating everything, or breaking up with your girlfriend, it's about integrity, pride, courage and self-control.

I highly recommend checking this album out. "Giles" is the best song, lyrically it tells a great story that goes very well with the music. (It's about how in colonial america, a man named Corey Giles was charged with being a witch, and he knew he would be found guilty when tried. So he didn't plead anything, and if someone didn't plead they put rocks ontop of him until he said he was guilty or innocent, he let them put rocks ontop of him for 3 days until he was crushed to death. If he had been found guilty- (everyone was found guilty, no matter the plea), he would have been hung and his farm would have become the property of the king of england, by not pleading it was considered a normal death and his property went to his children). This CD is just great, The time was mine to have and Sanctity of brothers are also great songs.
