Sound — 8
The sound quality is far better than the previous two albums. Phil Bozeman definately is better at vocals. There is a bit more variaty than in the previous albums. Some nice accoustic passages as well as a few solos make for interesting guitar parts. Now for the biggest change. I heard bass! They definately bumped up Gabe's volume, and even gave him a few small features, which is almost unheard of in deathcore. They should have put a different song as the first one, it just didn't seem very strong. Other than that, the sound was great.
Lyrics — 8
Phil does it again. Harsh vocals and more variaty than the past albums. The lyrics in this album are definately darker, more violent, and more emotional than in previous recordings. One thing about Whitechapel is that their lyrics never seem to flow smoothly. Sometimes, it almost sounds awkward. All in all, I think the lyrics, and how Bozeman delivers them, is done well.
Overall Impression — 8
This album is far better than many other deathcore albums I have heard. Most of the songs did not dissapoint. I like the sound quality, and how balanced all of the levels of the vocals and instruments were. I think it was a well made album, and all fans of the band and genre would not be dissapointed with it's purchase. I would reccomend it to anyone.
