Album Review

Taking a stand against the shifting trend towards ever more brutal and uniform metalcore that besets them from all sides, All That Remains actually took measures to increase the dynamic and textural diversity that already figured in their songwriting with 2008's Overcome — their fourth and arguably most accessible album yet. As has been the case throughout the Massachusetts quintet's career, the creative charge here is led by founding vocalist Phil Labonte, who consistently prioritizes clean-singing over savage growling and, for his efforts, successfully squeezes a few surprisingly catchy choruses and lyrics out of would-be singles such as "Two Weeks," "Forever in Your Hands," and "Believe in Nothing." His bandmates, meanwhile, see their instrumental contributions held ever in check by each song's optimal delivery; with Oli Herbert's flashiest guitar work saved exclusively for his consistently memorable solos (see "Before the Damned" and "Chiron," in particular), Jason Costa's typically busy percussive foundations never getting out of hand, and rhythm guitarist Mike Martin and bassist Jeanne Sagan holding own the backbeat with efficient reliability. Yes, the stylistic specter of Killswitch Engage still looms over many of the band's moves (as it does over much of the surviving New England metalcore scene, let's be frank), and a few less impressive songs ("Do Not Obey," "Relinquish," "A Song for the Hopeless") fail to leave a strong impression. But for all intents and purposes, Overcome offers very dependable melodic metalcore in the spirit of All That Remains' albums past, without succumbing to outright stagnation. And what's wrong with giving fans what they expect, after all?

Coming from a picky music fan, but die hard atr fan

With all of the $hitty music coming out these days, all that remains is really the only band I can always count on. This album is different from the fall of ideals, but I still think it is better. It brings a different sound more melodic, but more heavy. I do see how this album is getting no much mixed reviews. Mostly because of the all singing songs like two weeks, forever in your hands (kinda) and believe in nothing, but let me clearify this for everyone. Two weeks was just a very successful attempt for ATR to get some radio air play and it definately worked. Forever in your hands is the next single for ATR probably because it has almost no screaming in it, but it is still a great song, and Beleive in nothing is a Nevermore cover, though not mind-blowing, good. This album is still better than 95% of all the crappy metal out there. My favorite songs are before the damned- an agressive fall of ideals type song chrion- perfect example of how a changing band should sound days without- my favorite song of the album a song for the hopless- starts out sounding like the sleep by pantera, then becomes fast and aggressive with 2 of the most insane guitar solos I have ever heard. So get this if you are tired of bad music

The Jury is still out on this one

I can't decide if I like it... well I definetly like it, I just can't decide how much.

Don't get me wrong it has great songs, but they have totally changed their sound.

Two Weeks, their most purchased song, is just not metalcore. All That Remains is my favorite metalcore band. If it was a song by somebody else I would probably like it but it's just not what I want to here from all that remains. (People are gonna get defensive and click not helpful, but I'm just keeping it real...)

Than again, this album has some AMAZING songs. Chiron is probably my favorite. In closing, buy this, buy it now, but be prepaired for something different.

Uhhg.....

Waaaaaay too mainstream. I hate when bands do this. I'm looking at you Metallica!
