Editors’ Notes

At Heart is Miss May I’s most punishing album yet. Following the intro of the spooky-sounding title track, “Hey Mister” detonates like the demolition of a whole city block. Singer Levi Benton screams as if he’s trying to spit out his vocal cords, while drummer Jerod Boyd approximates the sound of skyscrapers collapsing. It’s not until a minute and a half into the song that we’re reminded of the band’s melodic aspect—bassist Ryan Neff’s clean vocals are so fetching that he could easily thrive as a solo singer in a less brutal musical genre. But as “Opening Wounds” best exemplifies, these guys are screamo to the core. They’ve done their homework and graduated with honors. Boyd’s blast beats here (and throughout) are mechanically flawless, and the band’s chemistry ebbs and flows like the well-oiled engine of a constantly touring quintet. But At Heart has moments that reveal the band deviating from its genre’s blueprint to take on classic thrash metal: “Leech” gurgles and growls with Benton’s feral shrieks, as gargantuan walls of guitar distortion are built up and blown apart.

Customer Reviews

Metalcore, but metalcore done well

I can't help but notice that most recent metalcore releases have been.....underwhelming. They fall into the sea of generic bass drops and breakdown coated self pity. However, I felt this release didn't conform to this, and instead allow influences such as Metallica and slayer (probably from bassist Ryan Neff) to really shine through. Un-resolving guitar noodling is rare and is instead replaced by huge riffing on the strings, providing solid rhythmic backing for benton's gutteral growls. Neffs cleans (thanks to producer mashine) are not overly processed which is nice as I find his voice quite appealing and raw, even if he has a limited range. My only criticism is the consistency of the album, a strong start which seems to tail of until ballad of a broken man. But overall a solid release.
