If I could give this album 10 stars I would. I've heard hundreds of hardcore and metalcore albums, and this is by far the best cd I have ever heard. Every track is fantastic in its own way.

The Great Dividers is a great opener, giving us the sounds of similar riffs that will be used throughout the whole cd.
Failure is a personal favorite, it has the best beginning I have ever heard.
This Lying World is hands-down (in my opinion) the best song on the album. It combines a little bit of singing, but Unearth keeps to their style and has some of the best breakdowns they've ever done in this song.
Black Hearts Now Reign is another personal favorite, and it's probably the fastest song on the album. If you ever get a chance to see them live, this was the best song they did at all 3 shows I've been to.
Zombie Autopilot has one of the best riffs throughout the entire song, and it's the first song that got me into Unearth.
Bloodlust Of The Human Condition is probably the hardest song on the album, and it's very catchy.
Lie To Purify is in-your-face metal from the start to finish. No building towards the hard parts. One of the best they've ever done.
Endless is another personal favorite...it's been used before on their EP but I never get sick of it.
Aries is more of a ballad, but it's a beautiful song and almost a break for your ears.
Predetermines Sky is a VERY good live song, and it's also one of the harder songs on the album.
False Idols was at first, my favorite on this album. I overplayed it so...lol, but it's a great song and it's the only song on this album that really has somewhat of a chorus.

Seriously BUY THIS CD, you will not be dissapointed. But get ready for August 8, cause Unearth will be releasing a brand new record called III: In The Eyes Of Fire. I've heard 3 tracks from it, and it's sounding great, but I don't think anything could top The Oncoming Storm!

One of the greatest metalcore album ever!!!

The Oncoming Storm is Unearth's breakthrough album. This was the first Unearth album that I bought. I fell in love with it right away. It has some of the greatest guitar on the planet, speedy drums that just make you want to headbang all day, and the lyrics are very good too. Unearth has had a very succesfull career, by sharing the stage with such acts as Slipknot and As I Lay Dying to headlining their own shows. Expect to love this cd, because it is one of the best metalcore album ever!!!
