I've gravitated away from metalcore in the past few years, but I do agree that this probably their best offering. They did well with this one.

Good review Drew.

Album is really good. I like how they have matured with each record and continue to get better.

Digging this album and this review. Trying to get my b400tal friend to listen to it, he still thinks TDWP are still the same dudes from Dogs can grow beards all over.

good review. The progression you keep harping on is spot on. I remember being "eh" on this band when they were first getting popular but I've been sold on them since the Zombie EP. Can't wait for the "you guys score your reviews too high" post.

This. I used to only listen to metalcore type music, Underoath, Zao, As I Lay Dying, etc., but that was 8 years ago, now I've fallen more into the Indie music scene (hipster music, if you will) but Zombie EP was one of my favorite albums from last year, so as soon as I get off work I'll be checking this out!

I'm waiting the two and a half weeks for my preorder to listen, but from reading this I know this will surpass ABR and hold the throne for best heavy release this year.

I think Leveler by ABR is pretty different from TDWP Dead Thone. I think everyones view on AOTY will be based on who they prefer. Both of these albums are HUGE pregressions for both bands and are both stand out albums. Just preference of band i guess will decide everything IMO

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 are no "jazz" parts in ABR's latest. Just because a guitarist is not shredding or chugging does not mean its now magically jazz. If you were to call those parts anything it would be latin inspired rock or something, but definitely not jazz.

Dead Throne is excellent. Good review Drew!

Really good review, it got my so much more excited for this.

Great review, can't wait to actually have this so I can listen; I usually avoid streams.

One question that probably has been answered already somewhere else, but wasn't ADTR's Jeremy McKinnon supposed to be a guest vocalist on a song? Coulda sworn I read that somewhere. If not, Tim will do just fine.

that's a no brainer seeing as how the latest BMTH album was terrible compared to their last two efforts.

I genuinely hope this is a joke. Suicide Season was decent, but anything before that is abysmal.

Actually Oh, Sleeper's Children of Fire might be the best metalcore album of the year for me. But TDWP has definitely created a more mature record and totally unique sound for themselves. There's absolutely no denying their passion, talent, musicianship, and hard work. Saw them on Warped Tour for the first time and I immediately understood.
