Going in to Life Cycles, my hopes were sky-high. I was expecting no less than a wholly inspiring follow-up to 2010's Deceiver, and I am thrilled to say I wasn't disappointed. In an effort that has gone awry for many a band before them, The Word Alive's impressively experimental, yet extremely refined sophomore album can be filed in the thesaurus as the end-all antonym for "sophomore slump."
"Dragon Spell" presents the album with a very eerie feel. The higher production quality than previous works is immediately evident, and contributes to a sound that is as immense as it is ruthless. With lyrics reverberating Deceiver favorites, long-time fans will have a hard time finding anything to their distaste on "Dragon Spell." It serves as a fitting intro, seemingly stating "we haven't forgotten where we came from, but we're not slowing down."
"Wishmaster" demonstrates singer Telle Smith's impressive vocal range, backed by the master of astonishing and stimulating electro-samples. "Entirety" is inarguably driving, as Smith croons "You're all I have." It sports one of the few moments when the sound is cut to nearly exclusively percussion and vocals, and the mastery of byzantine guitar-shredding follows. Lacking a resident keyboardist, "Entirety" and Life Cycles boasts even more haunting electric breakdowns than Deceiver.
"For Your Health" is a standout single, tracked with a very airy and atmospheric, well, atmosphere. Clean murmuring blends seamlessly with heart-beating screams, and the tentative vibe doesn't trip for a moment. Smith proclaims "we are still here," making it clear that The Word Alive will likely be around a while longer.

it sounds like prefab new metal corporate stuff - but its so damn good. Their first album has a little bit more variation but this is nice.

This is definitely the album of the year for the metalcore scene so far...blew my mind and expectations entirely out of the water. This a cool group of guys who are great in person and obviously enjoy what they do.

This album is a great work of art...every track is astonishingly good. The iTunes bonus track "Smoke Monster" is better than the Amazon bonus track "The Conscience," at least in my opinion. But I bought both of them anyhow. None of the songs are a disappointment in the least.

BUY: The entire album. Every song is as good as the last.

UPDATE: I now think that "The Conscience" is better than "Smoke Monster" but the album is so amazing it's hard to put one song in front of the other.

I've said it once I will say it again. The word Alive is just amazing and this new album is sick. Go buy a copy and see for yourselves!

TWA is so underrated. I saw them in concert a few months ago, and fell in love instantly. This album contains a lot of screaming but also meaningful lyrics and beautiful singing. Worth a listen - try "For Your Health"

Came across this group last week and was taken by storm. Not a huge fan of scream-o, but these guys hit hard and was taken back. Great album that I highly recommend!
