I actually think I like August Burns Red's new album a bit more, mostly on song structure wise, and how creative and different they added in China harp, marimba, etc. But JB is one of my favorite guitarists, so thats clearly the main reason ABR will always win metalcore album every time. But it's also a tough call because Parkway Drive is my favorite band. TDWP's lyrics are great though. Mike def does write some of the best songs in the genre. Theyre very, very poetic. I think this album is just as good as Rescue & Restore from a reviewer's standpoint, but I still enjoy R&R more overall.
