Deathcore for dance clubs, eh?

No, wait! Don't go! Keep reading!

My uncanny lvl. 68 telepathy skill tells me that a lot of people are going to hate this album. Deathcore haters almost certainly will. Same with those fanatical electro purists you encounter on your internet radio site of choice (you know, the "Skrillex = homostep" guys). Take some pretty simple techno tunes and mix them with some pretty generic deathcore, and that's a solid enough description of The Browning's new album. Commencing back pat right now.

You're either going take a rusty, shit-covered hook to your ears or get your dance on to this. Either way, check it out.

Ya know, come to think of it, this album kinda makes sense... Deathcore is in some ways extreme metal's form of dance music, with so much emphasis put on breakdowns that serve no other purpose than to get teenagers fuckin shit up in da pit. Combining breakdowns with electronic dance music elements seems only natural, although the quality, or lack of, is questionable...

The lack of quality isn't questionable.

No better than Bring Me the Horizon's There Is a Hell... if you ask me.

I think this could have been half decent if deathcore elements were replaced with death metal.

Do you know what a Morbid Angel is.

AA is shit too.
There is a difference, Troy. You are wrong about BMTH. They have never put emphasis on electronic parts. In fact I only remember few moments from that album to have some electronic stuff but not enough to stop calling them for what they are: Just deathcore. I do remember their second album had one bonus cd containing a remix dubstep version of the album but that's about it. Doesn't really count because it's just an alternative version of the album, not the original sound.

I can totally understand that everyone despise BMTH and I actually agree with almost all of them. For some reason still unknown to me, I like them even though I deeply dislike them as artists for the stupid interviews I've read. Probably the only "guilty pleasure" I ever had as I'm usually a shamless bastard when it comes to music.
While I do understand the "why the hell do you like them"-question... I don't understand your question as they definitely don't play the same thing as AA and the browning.

Well, if you like electronic hints in core, you should check out Heaven Shall Burn its subtle, it took me a few listens to hear it.

Hhahah thanks but I know them already, two of their cds in my pc and I'm thinking about buying some stuff. They are one of the few metalcore bands that actually know how metalcore should sound like.

I must honestly admit that this album sounds decent to me.

Can you give us an example maybe? When I think Heaven Shall Burn, I think of "We are the final... RESIIISSTAAAANCE!!" ... never noticed any electronics.

check "invictus"


I honestly can't recall much electronics on Invictus aside from the trance elements in Combat. But it is not my most played HSB disc so I might be wrong, maybe this is a divine sign that I need to spin it again!

On topic, for the first time ever I listened fully through this album. I was surprised. Pleasantly.

I really do not understand the huge negative backlash this album is generating.
I like good deathcore and bad deathcore is mainly bad because it is just absofuckinglutely boring. It often ha a good rythmic structure not so surprising seeing how much deathcore concentrates on rhythm but those long ass slow and heavy breakdowns are not filled with anything. And it makes it boring since you cannot make enjoyable music out of rhythmic elements alone (and breakdowns ARE rhythmic elements).

What this band does is to fill in the lack of leads with synths which prevents it from getting boring the same way I described above. It is a logical step since deathcore, as a whole is characterised by a really strong rhythmic base, and the electronic genres used on this album have much more interesting melodies than their repetative beats.

Personally I don't see anything wrong with that since synths are just as music as leads are so I don't care if it lacks good leads if the synths compensate for it well enough which they do.

Still, the album does suffer from being a bit stale in the long run.

Now what I can't decide is if I should rate this with a 6 or a 7.

Last time I impulse buy metal albums. I still think "What the fuck am I supposed to make of this?" every time I try to listen to it. Then again, never been into death metal vocals or electronic music, so this one had an uphill struggle from the start when I found out what it was. I'll just say "Not my kind of thing".

I understand if people like it... but I think it's hella easy to understand why someone would hate this as well. I'm gonna steal something that Joe said:

Quote:
If you took away the -core aspects of this, which are wholly incompatible with everything else, this would be pretty listenable on a cheese-fest level.

I'm a bit more critical about it than Joe but the content it's actually the same: The deathcore parts suck and do not mix that well with trance (or whatever people want to call it). The electronic stuff is just in the ok area. Combined... It just sounds wrong to me. Might give it another listening just beause I'm a masochistic idiot though.
