Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Rise Record doesn't do a lot of re-releases. A band has to prove that they're worthy, and the public has to want it. MMI has proven that they're more than worthy. MMI burst into the scene in 2009. The reissue will feature 3 brand new studio songs, 1 b-side, and a DVD with music videos, interviews, live songs, and more. This is a must for any existing Miss May I fan, and a perfect introduction for scores of new fans.

Review

"[T]hey're old-school when it comes to their music. You won't hear any rave synths or Auto-Tuned vocals on Monument, an album as heavy and rooted in place as its title suggests." --Alternative Press

Customer Reviews

I do understand the negativity that is directed towards this album.
Stone Larence
The first song is one of their faster songs, and the band really nails keeping on time which makes the song really cool.

I still enjoy As I Lay Dying more, but I am also a huge AILD fan as well.

Just when you think it couldn't be done.....Miss May I come back harder and heavier than before. I thought their first album was almost flawless, and I knew it was going to be hard to top, but they may have topped it with Monument. The production is great, the music is heavy and fast, and the vocals are spot on. Sometimes bands become main stream and over use clean melodies but Miss May I knew their limits on this one, everything just comes to place.
Some songs that definitely stick out are Relentless Chaos, Gears, and We Have Fallen.

It's fairly easy to tell if you'll like this album. If you loved their first album, there's a very good chance you'll like this one. If you thought their first album was just OK, there's a good chance you'll either feel the same way about this album, or you won't like it at all. And if you hated their first album, you will hate this album.

Where do I fall? I didn't think their first album was all that great. Very generic, predictable breakdown-laden metalcore that climaxes with a clean, sing-song chorus in almost every track. Deviating from this formula would allow them to explore the areas of their music in which they were strong. The band isn't short on actual talent, but in terms of songwriting they are sadly tied to the constraints of the style of music they play.

Being a metalcore/deathcore or whatevercore band doesn't mean you have to follow the leader. Bands that progress and take their music in other directions are the ones that will survive in the long run.

In any case, Miss May I's sophomore release takes their music in the direction their debut set forth. Is it basically Apologies are For the Weak part 2? You could say that, though they do sound a little bit heavier. There is nothing on this album that is particularly surprising and you know what you're getting when you buy this album. It's not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination but they deliver what they advertise.

What does this band do well? They're not short on aggression and they do have a good grasp of tempo and rhythm. All of that is evident. I only wish they would've taken the effort to push those limits and transcend the need for untimely breakdowns and auto tune-esque clean singing. Unfortunately I don't really see the desire to deviate from metalcore from these guys.

I've only been listening to Miss May I for a few months. I have known about them since they came out with their first album, but haven't really gotten around to actually listening to them. After being legitimately satisfied with the band's material, I heard from a couple of my friends that they were coming to play in Seattle in about two weeks. They said that they had bought me a ticket because one of them was having his birthday there, so I decided I would go since this band was pretty good, and I had seen both opening acts before and liked one of them. Overall I was satisfied with Miss May I's performance, not something I would spend my own money on but I had fun. I had only heard their first album before that so I bought their new CD since I liked the songs that they played off of it.

First off I would like to say that Miss May I is one of the heaviest metalcore bands I've ever heard in my life. They aren't quite as thrashy and ear suffocating as Mnemic (the heaviest metalcore band I know of), but their breakdowns are so brutal I think my heart skipped a beat during one of them. I would like to note something that I think was a horrible decision. And that is that they chose one of the worst screamers to be a guest vocalist on one of the songs. I mean, he is horrible, and if you want to know just how bad he is, read my review on Attack Attack's self-titled album, and message me and I'll send you two YouTube links that I will have you watch. My favorite thing about the overall sound of the album is that there is tons of clean, meaty bass that sounds awesome. The bass blasts are perfect, without distortion. In Miss May I's first album, the vocalist really needed some improvements due to an undeveloped and unpracticed scream and growl. But in this album, damn, his vocals sound astonishing.

I do understand the negativity that is directed towards this album. If you have heard "Apologies Are For the Weak", the sound on "Monument" isn't much different. However, I cannot relate; "Monument" is beautifully brutal. This album, in no way, is mainstream. With the exception of one song, the entire album is relentless. The songs do not sound the same as the first album, but... you could play the two CDs back to back and feel as though they are on the same album. What this album could have used is more explosive breakdowns with guitar solos overlaying them and longer, epic songs. I would love to hear an eight minute song from this band. Whatever the case, this album is thoroughly enjoyable and deserves more than one listen.

Well if you're into the "ARGLBLARGLEBLARGLEBLARG" or what I call "belching and vomiting into the mic" check it out. To be fair i do like that sort of thing on occasion. But the music and riffs have to back it up. Unfortunately, there's maybe two tracks that do that for me. One of which "Relentless Chaos." Even that though falls apart at the end for me. The vocalization, while difficult, is overbearing and the riffs are repetitive. I literally had two songs blend together using the same exact chords. I have no doubt that they can do better. I just have yet to hear it personally.
