Dead in My Arms
This Album was released in 2007 by This City Is Burning
Records. Dead in My Arms
's Debut album and is of the Deathcore
Firstly this is one of the better debut albums from bands that are of the Deathcore
Genre. This was the album that put Carnifex
on the map and features some outstanding tracks such as: Slit
, Hopes Die
With The Decadent and Lie To My Face which is an awesome song.
is a special band because it keeps up with the pace of Deathcore
but is very melodic as well. This album features some very brutal/heavy Breakdowns as well such as in the song These Thoughts Became Cages. There is just something about the way the band members put this album together is just amazing. Their style works very well, they can transition from a heavy breakdown to an ultra fast tempo. Also the drummer has very fast double kick (Slit
There a few things that bug me about this album though. Firstly The lead singer just keeps using the same type of screams and growls which aren't the best anyway, but somehow I think it suits their style which makes up for that problem. Also the music sometimes gets boring. Just the same screams, growls, drumming etc.
There there some interesting things about this ablum. Firstly I mentioned the very fast double kick, i'm not saying that they have the fastest double kick its just that it is really fast. Also in the songs Lie To My Face and Slit
Wrist Savior have this odd thing where they pause the song for about 3-5 seconds swear then keep going. On Lie To My Face Its "What The Fuck
" and Slit
Wrist Savior "Fine
Fuck You Then". I think its odd but that's what makes them awseome I like it.
Overall I like this album, there are a few problems with this album but they can easily be overlooked. Its Carnifex
's in your face attitude which makes them awesome. Carnifex
has an acquired taste so if you love deathcore I certainly recommend this album, not so much to people who aren't used to this genre though. I give this a 16/20
