...Time for another big can of worms to be opened up. Here's another album which, regardless of how you approach it in your review, someone is going to completely lose their shit on you for either being too harsh, or not being harsh enough. A lot of people seem to hate Suicide Silence. Well, while I certainly don't understand the intense animosity people express towards this band, I don't exactly understand the attraction either.

When you look at the comments section below one of their videos on YouTube, the words that you'll find there are most often "gay," "fag," "shit" or a combination of these. We're all aware how hated Suicide Silence and deathcore are in general, but whether we like it or not, these young Americans have become really big. Ok, their debut album, The Cleansing, was a mediocre deathcore record. Their second LP, No Time To Bleed, showed a band developing and even though it was based on deathcore structures, it contained more departures from the previously chosen genre and more experiments, for example wider and wiser selection of electronic samples. In a nutshell, it was a better CD. Now we have The Black Crown, which is a proof that Suicide Silence do not intend to stand still. Based on the genre they have helped to create, they have become a trademark of and also bear the burden of being its scapegoat, they are on their way of creating something on their own. What I mean is that they distanced themselves from other deathcore groups and when you listen to them and compare to, let's say, Oceano (yuck!), you can clearly see a difference.

"Why add a breakdown into a song that is already just one continuous breakdown?" - Unkown.

Wise words, especially if directed towards Suicide Silence. Their newest album The Black Crown is exactly that, one monotonous breakdown. When I listen to a band, I try to keep an open mind, I try to go in as unbiased as possible, but even with that mindset, I was still sickened by this album.

I hate deathcore with a burning passion but I would be a hypocrite not to know my "enemy". The execution of the songs themselves is what makes this album almost listenable, but the material (composition/songwriting, arrangement, creativity) is putting it nicely...garbage.

I picked up a copy of the new Fleshgod CD yesterday while on vacation in San Diego with a friend who is a fan of Suicide Silence, and he was raving about this album on the drive back to Phoenix. So I patiently struggled to make it through as he ranted about how "brutal" and "sick" this album was. Then I played "Agony" for him. Needless to say, it was a very quiet two hours or so after that.

Off topic; Agony slays, I'll type a mini-review over on that thread later when I have time. HIGHLY recommend it.

Unfortunately I live in Arizona, one of the places deathcore got big and popular first.

While I respect everyone's opinion because I realize that everyone has a different taste...I'm just curious...what exactly do you find about this album that deserves a 9?

Breakdowns were improved alot from their previous albums and bass has changed completely which really made the record better.

I think Frank actually did a very bad choice here, he fucked him self by doing this

Nothing wrong with Frank Mullen on here. Suffocation were influential on deathcore, some teens are gonna se his name check out Suffocation because of this and probably think it's 'totally sick and brutal dude!', and maybe Frank just likes the band.
