5.0 out of 5 stars All Shall Perish 8 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
In the vast progression of extreme music, the creation of several genres and subgenres has turned the classification of certain Metal bands into a dizzying labyrinth. There are those who do not succeed in melding genres together, creating stagnant music and being hurled into a large pile of mediocrity, along with several other musically unsatisfying bands. Then there are those who do succeed, receiving all the deserved praise and glory that they should. All Shall Perish have completely and undoubtedly succeeded in doing this. Creating Metalcore tinged Death Metal so successfully, it places them on the throne high above all those other bands who have tried and failed miserably.

The Price of Existence is somewhat of a majestic masterpiece in it's genre, and a thousand light years ahead of their first effort 'Hate. Malice. Revenge'. Superlative musicianship combined with epic songwriting and lyrically complex concepts. Themes of political angst and conflict in the lyrics fuel the relentless brutality which intertwines itself within layers of soaring melodies. The Gothenburg Melodic Death influence shines through the somewhat catchy guitar harmonies and intricate sweep picking solos, whereas the Brutal Death influence reveals itself within the furious blatsbeats and deep gutturals. The guitar playing overall is superb, with several complex solos and harmonised arpeggios. The riffs in general show much more creativity, and the breakdowns are severely intense, such as the one in 'There Is No Business to be Done on a Dead Planet'.

Aswell as the expected characteristics from a band in this crossover genre, the album also contains a sufficient amount of diversity in order to keep the listener appealed and excited.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rampaging death, no matter what they say 24 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
For some reason, All Shall Perish are placing themselves as a metalcore / hardcore crossover band, but my aged ears just seem to hear a cracking detah metal band. Maybe all those years with my head stuck in a Motorhead bass bin have removed any fine tunings I once had, but then the rampaging "Eradication" blows through the headphones, that's what I hear.

Three years on from "Hate.Malice.Revenge." the Oakland, California mob really have developed into a mighty fine, brutal outfit. Despite what I said above, repeated plays do start to throw up some different sounds as they gamely attempt to emulate a Pantera rhythm track in places.

If there's is a mission to bludgeon the listener into a moist mess, then they can rest easy knowing that they have succeeded with half a dozen ear bleeding gems to be found here. Best of the best is the grinding "Prisoner Of War", potentially their first classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me like breakdowns again. 28 Aug 2006
By Justin Bean - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If I were to deconstruct in terms of genre the music played by All Shall Perish, I would find myself talking about metalcore, i.e. the blending of hardcore and metal. In the former department we have some of the heaviest breakdowns I've heard, ones quite worthy of the best hardcore dancing and circle pitting. Regarding the latter we have some excellent death metal played with melody and superb competence. With all this said, it would nevertheless be a lie to call All Shall Perish metalcore. They are able to walk the line between these two genres without falling into the category that best describes, say, Unearth, due to a level of aggression and brutality that breaks the mold.

I had not heard All Shall Perish until this album, but afterwards I searched for their prior release, entitled "Hate. Malice. Revenge." if I recall correctly, and the two simply cannot be compared. While their earlier work clearly shows signs of what would become their current opus, everything from the production to the technicality of the guitar work is ten notches higher on "The Price of Existence". The vocals are varied and crystal clear, from a gurgling low to a piercing shriek, all of which keeps the energy flowing throughout the album. The drumming is ferocious and, of course, blisteringly fast. But not always, seeing as how most tracks break down into some of the most skull-crushingly heavy romps I can recall (add to this some bass drops that will explode your subwoofer [added in the post production] to increase the already heavy moments). The guitars work is technically proficient and catchy, employing plenty of melody and lead work that shreds along side the best in the game.

Basically this album is an all-around crowd pleaser. It'll grab you by the balls no matter what your prefered genre of heavy music might be. Keep and eye on these guys because if they keep progressing like thay have, you can only expect future greatness from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Sophmore Album 10 Aug 2006
By Greg - Published on
Format:Audio CD
First of all, to the last reviewer, there ARE breakdowns in this album. In fact, there are breakdowns in every song except the interlude called Greyson. They are a death metal band, but they have hardcore influences as well. They have said this in numerous interviews. They take the breakdowns and combine then with amazing drumming, amazing guitar skills, thanks to Beniko and thier new shredder Chris, and their new singer Eddie, formerly of the Bay Area band Gunmetal Grey.

I heard Eradication a long time ago when they put it up on their myspace and was amazed. I couldn't wait for the cd. When I saw them at California Metalfest back in May, and they announced that it was coming out August 8th. I went out to the Sam Goody yesterday and bought the last copy they had.

I have been listening to their first cd Hate.Malice.Revenge since it came out in 2004 on a small label called Amputated Vein. It was probably my favorite cd back in 2004. The amazing death metal combined with hardcore really caught my attention. All of the members of the band, past and current, are very good at what they do. I love Craig, the original singer's vocals, but I think Eddie does a better job.

The drumming on this cd is fantastic. Matt plays plenty of blastbeats, crazy drum fills, and even gravity rolls, which is one handed drum roll. Don't know what I'm talking about? Listen to the band Brain Drill.

The guitarists are as great as ever, with Mike, the bassist coming in and toning everything out. Chris their new guitarist shreds on this cd, with Beniko doing his fair share of shredding.

While both of All Shall Perish's cds are part of my top 10 favorite cds, I think they surpassed Hate.Malice.Revenge with The Price Of Existence. This is going to be one of the Top 10 Best cds this year. If you love death metal, and/or if you love hardcore with a lot of metal, go out and buy this cd. It will be worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars (4.5 stars) Crushes like a tank 25 Nov 2006
By A. Stutheit - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So many bands have written so many albums by using more-or-less one very simple songwriting rule: mix together hardcore and heavy metal as frequently as possible. Bands as old as Napalm Death, Meshuggah, Pantera, Hatebreed, and Dying Fetus were among the first to augment death or thrash metal with various elements borrowed from the hardcore world (breakdowns, for example). And through the years, the bands just kept forming, and thus the hardcore-vibe has stayed alive long enough to go through a huge popularity explosion at the turn of the new millennium - innumerable "metalcore" and "metallic hardcore" bands exploded from the music scene around 2000 (thus making hardcore breakdowns as plentiful in music as stars in the sky). But if you sit down and think for a minute, you should eventually realize there are two types of bands that do breakdowns: 1) those like First Blood and As I Lay Dying, who do them because it's the cool thing to do right now; and 2) bands like All Shall Perish, who do not sound like a generic Johnny-come-lately, but instead sound natural and very comfortable with both hardcore and heavy metal. It sounds like the members of the Bay Area quintet All Shall Perish are first-and-foremost death metalheads, but they also have quite a bit of grindcore (Carcass, Napalm Death, etc.) and Slayer-type thrash coursing through their veins, and they just now happen to be listening to a bit of hardcore (Hatebreed, Terror, etc.), too. This means ASP's second full-length, "The Price Of Existence," keeps the hardcore traits (gang shouts, punishing Hatebreed-esque breakdowns, etc.) to a minimum, thus making them more effective when they are used.

Truthfully, "The Price Of Existence" manages to be even buffer, beefier, busier, and more muscular, energetic, and brutal than the band's debut, "Hate, Malice, Revenge" (which was released in 2003 and re-released in 2005). A crystal-clear production job capitalizes on the disc's scalding energy, genuine urgency, gritty rawness, visceral anger, and great musicianship. The musical arrangements are extremely potent, tight, technical, steadfast, and carefully-constructed: Tons and tons of abrasive, grinding, cavity-shaking riffs, guitar leads that might singe your ear hair, quick, slamming drums, and tortured, demonic vocals (check out the almost deafening shrieks!) are incessantly heaped atop thick bass lines and dark, hefty, booming rhythms. It's a lethal concoction, and boy does it rock hard and with lots of fire. All Shall Perish officially rank right-alongside almost any other death metal band relevant today, including the likes of Skinless, Black Dahlia Murder, and Misery Index.

Although it may not exactly reinvent the deathcore genre, "TPoE" is an uncompromisingly harsh, powerfully bludgeoning, ferociously blistering take-no-prisoners assault which never friggin' lets up, save for a brief acoustic instrumental interlude called "Greyson," and a piano intro on the set closer, "The Last Relapse." Plus, the songs' constant, inescapable energy and nifty hooks help to make almost the whole album interesting and memorable. "Eradication" opens the disc up with a smoke-inducing jackhammer rhythm, frothing six-string interplay, smashing blasts, and a slow tempo change which helps build the tension nicely. Later, "Wage Slaves" and "We Hold These Truths..." back fiery, crunching riffs with walloping skins; sharp, punching riffs and exceptional bass work shred through the listener's speakers on "There Is No Business To Be Done On A Dead Planet;" "Better Living Through Catastrophe" features a great slow-to-fast build-up, thunderous, machine gun power chords, and an At The Gates-style blast beat; "Prisoner Of War" is an almost blinding number with a lengthy, careening solo, scorching riffs and rapid-fire drums that hit you over the head like falling cement blocks; "The True Beast" utilizes huge, flattening power chords to evoke the sound of steel doors being rapidly slammed shut; and the above-mentioned "The Last Relapse" is highlighted by busy, frothing, dogfighting riffs, a thumping beat, and a whiplash speed shift that will likely strain your neck muscles.

If anything drags "The Price Of Existence" down, it's that a generic, uneventful, less-than-exciting-or-amazing part will occasionally crop up, thus stalling the record's momentum and come across sounding a lot like filler (for example, track ten, the completely forgettable "Promises," kind of sags and probably should have been scrapped from the record entirely.) Plus, upon close inspection, it's clear that some of the riffs (particularly the slower, earth-shaking type) are recycled more than a few times over the course of these eleven tracks. But ultimately, any extreme music fan will find those two flaws very minute and almost irrelevant when he or she considers how much skull-crushing force, face-melting intensity, and massive devastation this mercilessly b-b-b-brutal monster holds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally something from the "core" genre's worth listening to! 11 Jun 2008
By Old School Gamer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The great thing about this cd is that it melds the best parts of a lot of metal genre's together in a very formidable way. I absolutely DESPISE metalcore, hardcore, and grindcore as genre's. They are completelly devoid of artistry and form as compared to the other more creative and musically adept forms of metal out there. These, to me, are the genre's that make true metal look bad.

This cd bring's a very good sense of melody into the mix of breakdowns and blast's more common in the core scene today. While I still feel we could do without the lame breakdown sections, I do enjoy almost every killer riff that they lead into on this cd. The use of arpeggio's and sweeps is also much better in this band than the many hardcore bands out there who think it add's some kind of technical value to the music. The drumming is also topnotch for this kind of music. He's not exactly a fusion drummer, but he knows how to best create atmoshpere with liberal use of blasts, gravity blasts, breakdowns, and a good amount of accent cymbal use. Their lead guitar work is also to be commended as smart and very befitting of the songs direction whenever it comes into play. They play very melodicly and have a pleasing tone, moreso than any in these genre's. And the vokilist, as much as a pansy as he looks like(as can be said for most of the band with their lil trendy hairdo's >.<), this kid can frigan growl, screech, and bellow with the best of them. So much deep air has never come from someone so scrawy as this kid, I'm telling you.

If your into anything melodic death or gothenberg, pick up this cd. Its something different than the regular run-of-the-mill melo-death, even though its not really trying to be. All "core" fans will love it, but I think this kind of stuff is more on the cutting edge of the next wave of melodic death than intended. Also, if you liek this cd, check out two bands "Born Of Osiris" and ESPECIALLY "The Faceless." The faceless is much in the same vein as this band, but to a much larger degree \m/

5.0 out of 5 stars most insane screams, killer music 28 Nov 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This was a great stop in my neverending search for awesome screametal. I first heard the song Eradication in a sampler and I knew I had to get this. Eradication is a hella fast song with the singer's screams ranging from low growls to the highest shrieks you've ever heard. After that there's some riot chorusing which I don't like and some slow lows. Then it speeds up again and he starts screaming even higher during a sick solo. Wage Slaves has one of the sickest rhythms ever, you just wanna headbang and sock someone, but it doesn't last long but it's still a good song. Their are even a couple songs with a symphony intro that sounds great and converts perfecly into metal. Those songs have better screaming because they're slower in some parts so he can belt it out. The other songs are awesome, nuff said, seriously. So if you're tired of everyone constanly screaming low like Hatebreed or Slipknot ripoffs and want some screams like a demon raptor thing getting killed, here it is.
