Brutally intense, unrelenting and outright savage are just a few ways the metal community will describe the new offering from Montreal’s hottest export DESPISED ICON as their new full-length effort, Day of Mourning, is a true lesson in violence. The material contained on this disc should come bearing a caution label stating “Is known to evoke extreme erratic and violent tendencies ... Read more in Amazon's Despised Icon Store

It was only yesturday that i saw Despised Icon supporting Unearth in Exeter and quite frankly i was blown away by their amazing performance! Naturally five minutes after their set i bought their album from Alex Erian himself who

ofcourse signed it. As soon as i put it on i was blown away yet again! The production is amazing, the dual vocals (low and high growls and screams). It was a relief from some of the other metal bands around. Star tracks include "as bridges burn" and "retina". Overall a first class album from a great band. I am telling you, if you like heavy music to buy this album now...you won't be disappointed!

great album! 27 Nov 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A very drastic change can be heard between Despised Icon's debut album, "Consumed by Your Poison," and The Healing Process. Whereas their first album was straight death/grind, on this album they have incorporated a bit more. With their signature ultra-brutal deathgrind still intact, they throw some hardcore into the mix. They have 2 vocalists, and there are 4 vocal styles present on this record: hardcore shouts, high, agonizing shrieks, deep over the top death growls, and inhaled death growls, which make a sort of whistling sound. All these vocal styles are balanced perfectly throughout each song. As far as the music goes, there are massive breakdowns, insane drumming, terrifying grind parts, technicality, and death metal brutality throughout. The band is sometimes called metalcore, which is of course false. This simply cannot be called metalcore, because musically this album is most in line with grindcore. It has also been dubbed "deathcore," which is a slightly more accurate desciption, but not totally when compared to other deathcore bands like The Red Chord. Despised Icon has straight-out deathgrind, untainted, combined with hardcore, whereas other bands mix it in a much more subtle and less brutal way. Definitely one of the better metal bands around now.

Best new album of 2005 and it's only April 10 April 2005
By Robert A. Kossayian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is by far the best new album that will be released this year as far as pure and unadulterated brutal metal/hardcore goes. This Canadian band really stepped up to the plate with their indiemajor label debut "The Healing Process". It's a solid performance from beginning to end, which is a very rare find these days. Honestly, there is not a dud on this disc. Amazon's "Album Description" lists a few bands that are quite dead on when it comes to describing the sound. It's a mixture of grindcore, death metal, and hardcore, all extreme genres that sometimes do not blend well. Despised Icon have found the winning formula, however. They brutally violate roaring deathmetal vocals with pounding doublebass and insane tech-metal guitar, and then layer mosh-worthy hardcore breakdowns with throaty battle cries that come deep from the chest and would make Hatebreed or Bleeding Through fans proud.

Some standout tracks are "Silver Plated Advocate", "Retina" and "Harvesting the Deceased". One of the most standout moments is during "Retina", where Despised Icon make history by becoming the first deathmetal/core band to use crowd singalongs on CD. This was a genius move, as they just add to the diversity on this disc and go perfect with the song. It makes me want to see them live just *that much* more.

Bottom line is that this disc will appeal to a very diverse yet massive crowd. Death metal, grindcore, and hardcore fans can finally unite over a band we can all kickbox and fingerpoint to but still hairwhip and mosh to. Amazon's "Album Description" is right on, but they should've mentioned Ion Dissonance, Cryptopsy, The Haunted, Hatebreed, All Shall Perish and Bleeding Through as some bands they are influenced by and sound like as well. They have done a fine job solidifying themselves with all the distinguished names they are mentioned with, and this is by far a genre-defying, bar-raising album, and one of the best debuts I've ever come across. You will want to keep your eyes on these guys for sure.

Sick Death-Core 16 Nov 2005
By Total Scumbag - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'll make this review short and sweet, because I'm feeling lazy today. Anyways I've had this CD for about 6 months and whenever I pop it in my mind is blown away, and my brains are thrown in a blender. These guys have two singers, and they both constantly switch off between different vocal styles, the brutal death style, the hardcore style, high pitched screams, and it blends together in a way that you will not be able to comprehend. One thing this band does not do is ever sing like a wussy, no emo garbage here. Basically if you think you're some big tough death-core kid because you listen to Premonitions of War, The Acacia Strain or The Red Chord, you don't know nothing until you've heard this. No disrespect to the latter three bands, they are some of my favorites, and some of the best live....but this CD is something else. Now come to Colorado, Despised Icon because I wanna see how much chaos you cause live. Buy this if you want to hear one of the heaviest bands in existence

Top-Notch Release 12 Oct 2005
By Shane C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As far as metalcore goes, this is one of the heaviest, well-produced, most-tightly-played releases ever made. I'd say Despised Icon actually beat In Quest this time around, and I really wanted to vote for In Quest's new album after the amazing "Epileptic" spun in my player for months on end.

Anyway, this is highly recommended if you can handle blasting death metal brutality combined with hardcore vocals & breakdowns.
