Amazing stuff. Great follow up to Oncoming Storm.
Over produced generic metalcore... this trend is on it's last legs.
im shocked someone had the balls to submit this review knowing the shitstorm it will inevitably bring about......f*ck all the hate, unearth always has been and still is a good f*cking band.......this album is better than a lot of music that people who hate unearth listen to.
being an unearth fan from the beginning (oh yea) this review is quite valid. they were impressive as a new band but as they stay atop Mount Metalcore, they aren't doing anything to diversify. If anything they are starting to assimilate to gain a broader audience. This record is good and better then most but for all that they've worked for over the past 6 years, they could have grown some balls and push the limits instead of catering to the masses. still love em though, just won't listen to thes
sick SICK album.. although the ocoming storm was a bit better... 7 is fair CANT WAIT TILL SLAYER AND UNEARTH IN OTTAWA :D
The Oncoming Storm was better. 7 is a good figure.
I liked a lot better than their last cd....it got a little old tho for me
>Unearth was the first band I heard that incorporated the Swedish sounds of In Flames and At the Gates with big breakdowns. No,sir. It's PRAYER FOR CLEANSING or AFTeRSHOCK.
You should review old albums more often, because everyone wants to read about albums they already have.
The new Misery Signals gets a 6 and this gets a 7? What the f*ck?
Yeah Dudes me and my ATO Bros where at the football game jockin some bitches Brah Gnar Gnar Style. With some brewskis then we hopped in the Lifted Ford with our sick Independant sticker on the back and Jammed this so Hard!
absolutely nothing unique or different, but an all around awesome album that delivers all the breakdowns, awesome guitar lines and solid vocals that you'd expect. I'm happy they are staying strong. BUT, the next album they should diversify a little bit.
darkest hour did it before unearth. not sure if anybody did it before them
Way to strike while the iron is hot, lambgoat!
Killswitch and Shadowsfall before Unearth and Darkest Hour, IMHO...
i mean, DH changed its sound around 2000, sounded more chaotic then swedish at the beginning...
hasn't this cd been out since this past summer? anyways yea 7 works...same unearth which isn't bad just blah whatever.
PRAYER FOR CLEANSING and AFTeRSHOCK did it before UNEARTH, KsE and SF. ex-AFTeRSHOCK menbers formed KsE and SHADOWSFALL. f*ck you gay boys.
Meh shit album all the breakdowns mostly feel forced and only 3 songs really stand out.
i hope youre all joking. this cd is horrible. a 7? yeah right! the last one blew and this one is just following in it s foot steps! all hail the new kings of mall metal!
If anyone from Metal Blade is reading this, then please ship us a box of 100 Unearth-III albums. We're all out. Late, DarkmarK
*Waits for dumbass with sideways camo hat to defend band
Swedish sound with break-down. Did you ever listen to The year of our lord" My god, right before they broke up, they basically sounded exactly like In Flames. Unearth was chugga chugga back then.
Darkest Hour did NOT do this first because Darkest hour doesn't have "big breakdowns." This cd is f*cking good. They picked up the speed and thrashiness and it sounds alot better than the oncoming storm.
Good review, Rob. I pretty much agree.
this cd has the exact same breakdrown as in "endless". lame.
why should they have to change the sound they like just because a couple of talentless gays want them to
First, Darkest Hour >>>>>>> Unearth. Secondly, what's with these Mallcore bands using other band's names as album titles (Killswitch "Daylight Dies" / Unearth "Eyes of Fire")? And lastly, this is a pretty solid album, but could have easily been done without all the karate breakdowns. Without a doubt - a strong 7/10. Kill the breakdowns and vary the vocals just a little bit and could've easily been an 8/10.
I agree with everything rob says. its not mind blowing, but still a great metal album
i dont know why people think the oncoming storm is better. that cd was horrible.
I agree with everything rob says. its not mind blowing, but still a great metal albumReal metal bands dont have a breakdown every godamn song and wtf is up with the last track poor mans excuse for an instrumental more like a b-side w/no vox pure core kid garbage.
big fan of stings of conscience... great band live... The Oncoming Storm was good the first 100 times.... This album lost me for some reason... seems dated and recycled
I for one will always support this great band, regardless of what the toolbags that call them "mallcore" or generic metalcore. "REAL" metal doesn't have breakdowns BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. If the f*cking haters actually took the time to listen to them rather than simply generalize them based on the genre they happen to fall into, maybe theyd realize their talent. This album was solid and more hungry than Oncoming Storm, but I still enjoy the Storm better. I just cant understand how anyone could ac
I'd rather listen to The Haunted - The Dead Eye than this mediocre album.
These guys are as generic as it gets... Total crap!
^^Typical "generic", uninformed argument. How the f*ck can band be considered generic for having a style they helped create? Being generic implies sounding just like everyone else and being "just anotehr band". Well, no, most shitty metalcore bands sound like them, NOT the other way around. Dousche
the riffs are all recycled from the oncoming storm. tell me im not the only one who knows this.
I'd like to just point out that "family crest"-style artwork is completely played out. Please stop copping things people were already getting tired of in the 14th century. That said, "Stings of Conscience" was good.
great cd... not as good as the oncoming storm tho id stil give it an 8
as far as the band goes.. there great guys and have deffenatly proven to be a great band. as for the new album, i was personaly disapointed... it was no where near as good as the oncoming storm...yet theyve even ripped their own riffs off from the oncomming storm.. some of the guitar work is way better but to me it sounded like a bunch of songs that could have been just fillers for the oncomming storm. all in all still decent.
i really sincerely hope that these eliteist gays with their "mallcore" and "generic metalcore" buzzword put downs has their favorite band start to get slightly popular so they will realize they are just tools that shit on something because more than 5 people like it, If you are one the pioneers of a genre you cant be generic, secondly i dont think you can rip your own riffs off....you can have a style, which in turn would have riffs sound similar to each other...these dudes can flat out rip an
Great band, haven't heard this yet but just bought it and about to listen.
