Carnifex – Slow Death

Legitimately one of the darkest and heaviest deathcore albums I’ve ever heard, and also probably the best. I went into this with every expectation that it would be trash, and I was proven drastically wrong. It’s one of those things that takes some getting used to in order to really appreciate, as when you first hear a breakdown you immediately react to it as being trash. Only when you open your mind do you realize that the breakdowns here are actually really fucking good and ADD to the atmosphere of the album. The muted, down-tuned guitars actually make sense, and the black metal tremolo riffs just add onto how dark this fucking album is (at least for deathcore). In terms of being the most sinister deathcore album ever, I’d say it lives up to the hype, and then some. It’s still deathcore, so it comes with its own issues, but I would highly recommend this to anyone who believes that all deathcore albums are made equal.
