Annotations Of An Autopsy - The Reign Of Darkness (Review)

The latest album and second latest release from Annotations Of An Autopsy before their just released EP. Though I will probably not even listen to their EP. Annotations Of An Autopsy is a British Deathcore band though they may be considered hardcore with their new release. Though not very popular probably from the fact the singer looks like is not thin nor scene.

The album compromises of probably the simplest deathcore written songs I have seen being mostly breakdowns and kind of eerie riffing. Though saying that I wouldn't say that they are bad. In their defense it is nice having a kind of simplistic but heavy album, and heavy it is.

The guitar work is mainly compromised of breakdowns and tremolo picking, nothing to a great speed, but some what moderate. Though it is kind of nice just having a heavy sounding album like already stated. Vocals are quite neat with their low sounds, some what death growls. Though I miss how they took out so much pig squeals that they use to do in the previous album. Sure the first album had loads of pig squeals, they could kept a bit though, but that may be due to their seeming transition to hardcore. Drums is alright, nothing to great, but keeps the beat heavy.

Annotations Of An Autopsy - The Reign Of Darkness     5.9/10

The band only have made one music video, and this is from their new EP.
And I personally do not like it.

How the band use to be.

Though my favourite would be.

Jesus Christ, their drummer looks like someone I could break in half with my bare hands.

Not even, like, using a maneuver or technique...just hold his skinny ass at arm's length, heft him up (easily) overhead then just tear him in half.
