It’s not too often that a band can get away with making a true deathcore album. Usually, if it doesn’t have some sort of gimmick, some sort of novelty or weird catch, it is left by the wayside, and dubbed “generic.” So, it is with great pleasure that I sit down and listen to A Legacy Unwritten’s “Six” for the umpteenth time, and revel in its unadulterated, deathcore horrorscape.
Right out of the gate, ten seconds into the first song, you’re greeted with a bone-crushing breakdown. It catches you off guard. Sure, I’ve heard EPs that start with a breakdown, but, when you play this album, it doesn’t seem cliché. Every segment has a purpose: to blow you the fuck away. You’ll be taken aback by the production quality, and the no-nonsense attitude of the tracks.
This album is for the people who say that deathcore is dead. For the people who say that there is nothing left to be done with the genre. ALU makes breakdowns interesting. They’ve revitalized a stale trend to just pump as much brutality into a song as humanly possible—by doing just that. For some reason it works.
The guitars are gallopy, the vocals both devastatingly low, and piercingly high. Drums get the job done. This is the kind of album you just put on and get fucking pissed to. That’s it. Insert album => get pissed.
I don’t want to sit here and sell you on this album. If you’re a fan of deathcore (which, let’s be honest, you are) then just give it a listen. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
