Editors’ Notes

Costa Mesa metalcore quintet Of Mice & Men step up their game on the band’s sophomore album The Flood. With pummeling rhythms and ferocious guitars, “O.G. Loco” opens revealing that they may have named themselves after a 2004 Megadeth song by the same name instead of John Steinbeck's classic 1937 novella. The screamed vocal shredding of former Attack Attack! frontman Austin Carlile is contrasted alongside the clean melodic tones of second singer Shayley Bourget, keeping things dynamic — especially on the machine-gun attack of “Still YDG'N.” With Bourget taking the lead on “Purified,” the song proves to be the most accessible, while “Ohioisonfire” focuses more on a bare-bones nü-metal approach as Carlile pushes the bar up on his demonic screeching, exercising rhythmic control and restraint. At just under two minutes long, “I’m a Monster” ends the album with a feral assault.

Customer Reviews

A bit samey at first

This is definitely an album you need to listen to a few times to get to like it. I'm a big fan of the band so I was really excited about getting it, but after the first 6 tracks "oh they're heavier now" got a little boring. I'm glad I gave it a second chance though, now that I've listened to all the songs more in depth I like it a lot more.
I'm still a little disappointed by the lack of "wow" moments in the way of choruses, the self-titled album was packed full of those. The vocal melodies just don't quite have the same initial impact as the ones in the older material, but this is by no means a bad album, either for previous fans or for newcomers to the band.

Just brilliant!

i had very high expectation of this album and i was not disappointed each song is unique and a master piece, a simple must buy!! :D


OMG, what an amazing album!
