After having put everyone to sleep with 2009’s “Witness”, Blessthefall couldn’t have come up with a better name for their third album. Don’t expect anything too crazy… these Phoenix natives aren’t reinventing the wheel here. It however does show a band who knows what they’re good at which is writing catchy yet by-the-numbers metalcore tunes.

The drums run smoothly, the guitars shred where they have to and swirl melodically in other places and the screams vs clean vocals thing works well. It’s all present and accounted for and while there are no surprises to be found on here, this is a pretty solid and focused release… for those of you who still haven’t had enough of this kinda sound. There are no real highlights, everything flows along nicely and is kept concise, keeping things interesting throughout the entire album’s duration. Welcome back guys!
