If you strongly believe deathcore isn't worth a damn, well congratufuckinglations, you're officially a total tool who doesn't know what's good for him. Here's how the rest of the "I hate deathcore because I'm a wuss"-scenario plays out: soon you become the laughing stock of your friends (even the ones you made up), your loving mommy and daddy think you're a disgrace and kick your ass out of the house and eventually you end up being that weird guy in the subway who does headbanging tricks for a nickel. All this because you refused to listen to some hq deathcore shit... like Born Of Osiris' latest.

All exaggeration aside, the new Born Of Osiris album is probably the most forward-thinking deathcore album since, well, pretty much the dawn of fucking time. The Discovery is all things deathcore - i.e. mutilating br00tality - though served with a strong-tasting progressive and keyboard-driven sauce. The album shows a band giving in to their compulsive need to cram a fuckload of short-circuiting melodies in the listener's ears. The outcome is plain br00tal, be it in an intelligent way and without ever getting generic or repulsive. In fact, it's probably the tremendous amount of technicality and virtuosic skills along with the syncopated rhythms and uncountable progressive outbursts that are responsible for melting off your face. Either way, shit is tight.

A delightfully complicated and intense listening experience awaits you. Even if you were already familiar with the works of Born Of Osiris (brofist) this blistering album will still be an eye-opener. This six-piece band really stepped it up a couple of notches and made a huge improvement since 2009's slightly monotonous and rather cliché-ridden A Higher Place. God knows where they found it, but I'm really digging their new bag of devastating tricks.

In conclusion Born Of Osiris are hotter than a black leather couch in hell. You can either believe me or completely miss out on one of the best releases this year. Your choice, gay boys.

This band, along with All Shall Perish, is one of the very few deathcore acts worth listening. The review is pretty stupid though... If you lack vocabulary, try a dictionnary instead of replacing words with "fuck", "shit" or "gay"...


Somehow I don't understand why I'm trying to explain the obvious but I will anyway:

Most of Thryce's reviews are like this and I love them that way because they are trashy on purpose, completely over-the-top and mostly tongue-in-cheek. I can bet money he wrote "Gay" just to piss people off. Quite down-to-earth instead of the classic pretentious description of the music (like... a huge amount of reviews here and other music forums).

I understant but no, it's not "obvious" if you're not used to his reviews, eh...

Oh yes, we're on the internet, it's already obvious just by realizing that Words like gay or fuck are pretty much 100 times less impressive on the internet.
I'm seriously not trying to be a smartass here but I'm just astonished over the amount of people that commented on the review being offensive while the internet is sooooo much more offensive, the tv is more offensive.. Pfff even real life is more offensive XD. We've seen so many trolls here and many other reviews that are similar in nature without any comments, so why now?

I stand by what I said to some fellas a whie ago, if this wasn't a deathcore album no one would have cared about the language at all. Even the contrary...
Another one: This review > any other review that has an emotionless vibe to it. Reviews are just opinion, if they are just informative... they are so meh they shouldn't really be featured sometimes Like soneone said before... even if it sounds cheesy: it's all about passion.
Meh, that's all there is to this discussion, cheers.

All I understand from the review is that its a death- core band

Yeah me too. Maybe if one listens to deathcore regularly this is the way you start to think...

Metalcore is basically Hardcore music with distortion, so whats the deal with Deathcore?
I have a problem listening to straight up Death Metal, it has to be either Technical or Melodic.
I hate Hardcore music. I hate Metalcore music....
So whats the dealio with BOO?

I'm pretty confused here, you say you hate metalcore music and Trivium is one of your favorite bands.
BoO is basically progressive music, pretty neat stuff imo. If you can handle some synth based music with a lot of progressive stuff and growls and clean vocals... then check their myspace or something, it won't hurt.

Progressive Deathcore? Sounds like an oxymoron to me, then again I know next to nothing about this type of music, will give this one a go.

Also who cares about the way the review is written, it clearly serves it's purpose...

Gay

offended? I lackz vocab? rock on!
Paradox Lover - 03.06.2011 at 20:14  
I'll check this out, although you seem to be exaggerating ... or the "shit" is really worthy? Will see/ listen to it now

PTH is metalcore with progressive elements, and ID is more along the lines of math metal (or "djent" to some), which is a little more confined to a specific form of progressive metal.

Deathcore with progressive elements is a new creation as far as I know.

Ion Dissonance is Djent now? wtf? I feel weird now.... it has always being presented to me as deathcore (even by Thryce in his staff pick)
But yeah you're right about PTH.

Bit off-topic...but ID is (technical) deathcore + math metal, and math metal is essentially "djent".

It ain't your typical black and death metal anymore.

Might be a bit off topic but Arsonists Get All The Girls' Motherland is one of the better Progressive deathcore albums this year, for people who are interested its quite catchy.

Great album! I'm an old metal guy and I don't know what deathcore is and don't care. But this is fresh stuff, killer guitar. Sounds like metal to me!
