All Shall Perish - This Is Where It Ends

So I enjoyed "The Price of Existence" pretty well when it came out and I still listen to some songs off it. Pretty much the same can be said about "Hate, Malice, Revenge". "Awaken the Dreamers" had some interesting parts but pretty much left me with nothing memorable. The same can be said about "This is Where it Ends".

Everything you expect about All Shall Perish is present. Melodic Death riffage on steroids ala The Black Dahlia Murder. Heavy chugging left and right on this album. Triggered drums. You know all the prerequisites of what is the crazy thing these days whether you call it Metalcore, Deathcore etc etc.

Like I said earlier I enjoyed their first two albums pretty well, they weren't mindblowing but they were pretty decent considering the market wasn't completely saturated at that time with this "style" of music. That's where I think this album's biggest pitfall is. Everyone is very proficient at their instruments in All Shall Perish but they fail to do anything new in a stale and washed up genre.

Basically, if you're a fan of All Shall Perish and want nothing but some more of what have already heard, then by all means this is for you. If you are hoping they do something new, skip it. It's nowhere near as bad as alot of the bands who do this style but still very passable which is a shame because this band had some serious promise.
