5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, January 18, 2011
This review is from: The Hymn Of A Broken Man (Special Edition)(CD/DVD) (Audio CD)
This is pretty much how I knew I would react to this album, ever since I found out of it's existence two years ago. From beginning to end it's so perfect, and I don't know how it's possible but it gets better and better every time I hear it. And I literally have every chorus stuck in my head for daaaaays. It's almost what I'd call a musical spiritual successor to Alive or Just Breathing from Killswitch Engage. All the same elements are there, just built into a new broader direction. Adam D's unique songwriting is still present, and Jesse Leach's vocals still give goosebumps. From what I've heard, this album was meant to cross the lines of several genres, and it does that without sounding forced, and staying true to the style. And because of that, I'm hoping it will help spark interest in metal music again from those outside of that scene. So buy this album (if it sounds like something you will like, then you will) and play it for your friends, your girlfriend, your wife, your parents, anyone who will appreciate it for what it's worth, a beautiful heavy record.
