im glad that wdhr doesn't have 100% born of osiris precision execution or any other new glam shine for breakdowns becuase thats why with dead hands rising is so good is cause there so rough on the vocals and timing that it makes it sound even more heavier and not as perfect as all these bands make there cds. its not about polish its about the fucking message ass pringle

I really don't think these are terror dorks speaking....
this type of music is in the same state that nu metal was at in 2003.. consider this a last hurrah. Clusterfuck is an understatement. Music should be art, not competition.

"A fairly accomplished deathcore band, sure, but being an accomplished deathcore band is pretty much the same thing as a bodybuilder competing in the special Olympics."
This might be the best thing I've read all year.

I am pretty burnt out on this...There is one thing I agree on this album...It just isn't cohesive, at all.
It's sounds so messy. They are great musicians, but they don't sound like good songs sadly...

Solid review. Below average album. 4/10 seems about right.

the vocal patterns i do agree are off on some parts or sound a little weird, but the tone of his voice i think is way better than the vocals on their last release with colin

the reviewer is truely burnt, and for good reason. BUT, these reviews should go to people who can see from the outside>in. 15 year old kids aren't jaded and burned out yet, they are impressionable and reviews like this are a huge disservice. Let the young kids have their day, nobody is forcing this shit down our throats.

this album is no where near what their past 2 were. I simply cannot get into it at all. They sound like everything else. In thier old albums , they had a sound. when you put that in, you knew it was them. Their new vocalist is incredibly boring with almost 0 range. I almost regret buying this cd.. I agree with the rating.. The old cd's were 10/10

reviewer seems burnt out on deathcore, which is fine. but it influences the review greatly. should probably hand the record over to someone who isn't biased.

yeah, these guys were playing "deathcore" before the stupid term was invented. at least give them credit for having a more defined and unique guitar style then most of the crap out there. when you hear a dead hands song, you know it's dead hands. Can't say the same for 99% of the cookie-cutter suffocation rip-off riffs running rampant in the "genre". i'd give it a 7.

yeah they released an EP called The Horror Grows Near in 2004. And i'm sure they wrote some songs well before Expect Hell was released since there was a long gap. I don't think you should be describing a band deathcore as an insult since they were playing death metal influenced metalcore well before the trend set in.

this band sucked in 2003 and still sucks to this day.

They had an ep between BI and this one. Behind Inquisition is one of my favorite metal albums ever. I saw these guys the first night they switched vocalists out and haven't cared about them since. Used to be the coolest thing in Minneapolis. Now just mediocre.
Also, why rerecord "tourniquet girl?" That song fucking kills on Behind Inquisition.
