Disappointing to say the least

Very different from "The Dead Walk" and "3750." Where Vincett rep'ed a unique voice with his bellowing scream in those two, in this he more or less consistantly has a burst scream comparable to Norma Jean. I was very saddened once I was finished listening to the whole CD, since the powerful "The Dead Walk" had me dancing to its beautiful euphonies and this one only had me wishing the cliche'ic CD would end. A notably good song was "Roadhead Road" where Bennett actually uses his distinct vocals in the beggining and the well played breakdown in the end. I would recommend purchasing only that song or the whole CD just to help represent TAS. All-In-All, what I had screamed for glee once I discovered it had came out, ultimately made me want to cry in dismay.

Itunes has decided to make all Acacia Strain Albums available.
Wise choice.
This album i would say shows the progression that The Acacia Strain has made.
On this album vocalist Vincent Bennett's screams are more high pitched but not bad at all.
I would defeinetely say that the band's later efforts are more heavy but this album is an overall great debut.

This Is Excellent!

For those of you who like the genre of metalcore, you will love this band. However, The Acacia Strain adds some characteristics of deathcore. Their vocalist, Vincent Bennett, uses high pitched screams as well as low pitched screams. This is one part of many that gives them the metalcore/deathcore genres. The guitar riffs are very melodic, another part of deathcore music, and the music as a whole has variating speeds which are range from moderately fast to a blast beat giving them another characteristics of deathcore. This is their first album and I have to say it is very good. I highly recommend this album, along with the other albums the band offers, for those who enjoy very heavy, fast, and "core" music.
