23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.

"A Chelsea grin in soccer hooligan terminology is the act of cutting a rival's mouth with either a credit card or blade and then kicking them in the crotch so their mouth muscles split into a bloody grimace."

Ah, my first review. Of course it has to be for a deathcore album. Now, I know most of you readers have an utter hatred of deathcore, and of Chelsea Grin, but this album should change all of that. This album is heavy, fast, and in your face. The vocal work is amazing, featuring high screams and low grunts. The guitars are low and chugging, and at the same time, fast with gut-wrenching solos. The drums are pounding out endless beats that will melt your eyes out. Overall this album is very well put together.
