First sentence of second paragraph just makes you stupid. Oh no! A guy who's dumb enough to call this the greatest melodic metalcore album called me a douchebag.
I wrote words explaining why it's my favorite. If you can't read, it's not my problem. Oh man! The reviewer has an opinion! Better just call him stupid because I don't agree with it Anyway review is good, I like this album a lot, not as much as you but yeah. Digging: Cavern - Powdered. It's okay if you don't like as much. I won't hate you for your different opinion too much cause you're nice haha. I so believe you captured the essence of the album so well. Pos'd the hardest. Cheeeek that out dude.
Lead RIFFs:. Bad selection. Save Cancel. Really delete this comment? Yes No. Fall from Grace. Fight for Life. If I fall would you be there to raise me up? Or will I be the forgotten one? Hymn of a Broken Man. The Forgotten One. Hope Remains. The End of Eternity. Worlds Apart. Fall from Grace. Spotify Amazon. Not a big deal. Just slightly. I also found that while the guitar parts in the album were very technical, they had personality.
Lots and lots of personality! Good job for keeping it real. The duo really let their metal and punk influences shine, and overall I think it was composed well.
Not many songs can make me tear up, but these can. Good job guys! With softer and more aggressive dynamics, along with solid effort in all the musical areas, these guys really succeeded in making great music.
Despite this, the songs on this LP do sound akin to one another, which may or may not be a good thing. Do you not realize how rare that is nowadays?! Again, solid debut album. You know what? So should you.
Rating: 8. Alive or Just Breathing, the second album by Killswitch Engage and the last featuring vocalist Jesse Leach, is considered to be one of the defining albums of the modern metalcore scene. Times of Grace finds Leach reuniting with guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz for their debut effort, Hymn of a Broken Man, which manages to not only be an outstanding album, but the best this pair has had to offer since Alive or Just Breathing.
Switching between melodic riffs and the occasional breakdown or solo, song structure on Hymn of a Broken Man is familiar. Some songs, like The Forgotten One, may even leave you wondering if you are listening to a metalcore album at all.
These moments are rare, but can leave the listener impressed by the chances that Times of Grace are willing to take.
By utilizing post-rock elements, Times of Grace creates some truly beautiful music and goes outside of the box that metalcore as a genre seems to have insulated itself in while still maintaining a strong balance between the melody and heaviness that defines it. Dutkiewicz plays every instrument on the album, and his status as a Renaissance man of modern metal is cemented here. His drumming and bass playing are very solid, although not revolutionary.
They provide a solid rhythm while tossing in a few surprises, such as the use of blast beats in Hope Remains. That being said, Dutkiewicz truly shines on the instrument he is most known for, the guitar.This is a hymn of a broken man. Falling (falling), cast out from blessedness, Now there’s nothing left, nothing but apathy. [Chorus] God save you. God save your soul turned inside. This is a hymn of a broken man. If you could only see the truth, for pride has blinded you. Feel with your heart, disregard has killed you once again. [Final Chorus:].
