Being a huge deathcore fan, I'm always willing to listen to different deathcore bands. My friend told me to listen to the new Carnifex
album. I had only one Carnifex
album before this and that was "Until I Feel Nothing
" and I wasn't all that impressed with the release. But I went into Die Without Hope
with an open mind, not even thinnking about the previous work I've heard from them.
The opening track really set a mood for what I was going to be hearing for the next 40 minutes. Very melodic, shredding deathcore. There is absolutely nothing bad I have to say about this album after about 10 listens all the way through. The vocals are about ten times better than Until I Feel Nothing
. Every single ear piercing scream really packs a punch. The drums are clearly top notch, but there's something that surprised me a lot about this album and deathcore in general. The guitar work. I've almost never heard a guitar solo in deathcore before this album. And
they're not just slow short and boring. The guitarist in this band can really rip. With crazy sweeped arppegios, and shredding speed picking, I have no complaints.
Die Without Hope
has definitely impressed me. More
than you think. This album beats any deathcore album I've ever heard. It beats The Cleansing
by Suicide Silence
, This Is Exile
, it even beats The Price Of Existance
by All Shall Perish
. My favorite deathcore album I've ever heard. These tracks are more than just a three minute breakdown. I'm going to give this album a perfect 10/10. Great job.
