Good review drew. I really like the album, definitely think it's their best work to date. I've always thought as TDWP as on of the better metalcore bands on the scene and hopefully this album separates them from the rest.
I guess I can describe Dead Throne as purely a well-done metalcore album, Leveler as a metalcore album w/ a lot more Jazz/Ambient passages and Volition (As Hell Retreat's new one) as a mid paced metalcore album w/ some parts that sound like Hands/A Hope For Home
there is no way this beats ABR (but it might come close). was never a big TDWP fan but seeing underoath, AILD, and Adam D from KSE mentioned in the opening paragraph is definitely enough to warrant me checking this out
That's just my opinion, but check the album out for yourself.
