A true marvel to the genre

Metalcore has been dying out and overdone with the usual chugs, breakdowns, and slam beats. But Silent Planet has, and still, makes sure to do things differently. I have listen to every EP and single the band has released and although their earlier work is a pretty remarkable time for the band, this album hands down stands out and impressed me. Everything was sound was very nice in it’s concept and atmosphere, but the band has grown immensely since even that album. With the hardcore and grittiness of their earlier work, the band has experimented with sound and theory this time around. And it really shows. Just like some bands like August Burns Red and Between the Buried and Me, Silent Planet has taken into each song being a unique concept in lyrics and instrumental construction. Stand outs like Vanity of Sleep, Firstborn, and Lower Empire, all have very different structure and purpose. There’s also interludes in this album, which all Silent Planets must love since it’s definitely something that’s refreshing to the listener after listening to the full album, but also something that adds in value to the theory to the album. The band has focuses a lot of time and energy into this album, and it shows. Garrett Russell has outdone the footnotes this time around and it’s starting to inspire some to create “homeworkcore” which is pretty great to think about.
Listening to most of the songs, you can’t tell the bands even of Christian faith. The band is really down to earth about their views of others and our poisons we pick. One song is about the mistreatment of LGBTQ+ members from hypocritical Christians, and the societal standards set against the group. If you just listen to the intricacy of every part of the music, you’ll grasp how unique and brilliant the album is to the world of Metalcore. Truly an easy 4/5. Only complaint is the song Lower Empire doesn’t fit well in the mix with its unique sound, and the lyrical content doesn’t reflect well with this sound. But I admire Garrett and the band for feeling it was important to their concept.
Wasn’t die hard about the band until this album, so that should say something good.
