After hearing how good Ascendancy was, I had high hopes for this record. Suffice to say I was let down a bit. Apparently all the low screaming wasn�t good for Matt Heafy�s voice, so most of the screaming from the first two albums is gone. Not that I mind clean singing, but there are definitely times here where I miss it. Most of the songs are well crafted, but at times, instead of sounding like an homage to bands, it sounds like a direct rip-off. Case in point, the whole opening sequence of �Unrepentant� is a cover of Metallica�s �Through The Never�, and then the intro for �The Rising� sounds like it�d be more at home on a Tesla record. Having said all that, there are songs that I like, including The Rising, and Contempt Breeds Contamination. Some of the lyrics sound like attempts at creating fantasy worlds, ala the British metal bands of the early 80�s. All in all, it�s not a bad record, but Ascendancy was much better.
