The second album (if I'm not mistaken?) from UK band Bury Tomorrow. Personally, I'd only heard about these guys a few months ago and on the strength of the excellent 'Royal Blood' track, decided to buy this album. Essentially BT are a metalcore band, but they are a damn good metalcore band who throw in enough subtle twists and turns to make them have a "sound" they can call their own. When the harsh vocals are in effect, they are very harsh, when the soaring clean vocals hit, boy do they hit....making for many memorable and epic choruses. In fact, if I could pinpoint BT's greatest strength, over the tight musicianship, brilliant guitar melodies, and harsh vocals, it has to be the clean vocals....they don't sound whiney or girly....they are superb. This doesn't get 5 stars from me because some songs, structurally speaking, are lacking and because you can sense a bit of a fight within the sound of this record, obviously these guys wanted something heavy, but at the same time accessible....which is fine....but it doesn't quite click for the entire duration of the listen. If they keep the incredible clean vocals to forge more tremendous choruses, keep the twists and turns coming, and develop their heavier side more....the next album will be a classic!. For me, the highlights on this album are provided by 'Royal Blood', 'The Maiden', 'An Honourable Reign', 'Abdication Of Power', and 'A Curse'. Highly recommended.

I almost can't get my head around how great this album is. No filler tracks, brutal from beginning to end (although the last track, 'A Curse' is one of their softer songs). This is nothing like your generic metalcore, they put their own spin on the genre, adding interesting and complicated guitar riffs and melodic piano to the beginning of their songs. When I first received the album in the post, I was already excited. I was not disappointed one bit. I could stay here rambling all day, but you have to listen for yourself, go and put it in your basket right now.

Favourite tracks, 'Redeemer', 'The Maiden', 'Lionheart', 'An Honourable Reign', 'Royal Blood', 'Bitemarks', 'Abdication Of Power', 'Sceptres'- Yeah, a lot.

I'm not really a huge fan of metalcore, and certainly the prospect of listening to a whole album of it would normally be unthinkable.
However, since their very early days Bury Tomorrow seem to have a bit more about them, and this is album was a huge surprise, "heavy, but at the same time accessible" as another reviewer says.
A year after release I'm still listening to it, and often all the way through. BT have melded melody and metal together in a way that seems natural and uncontrived.
The historical subject matter sometimes doesn't work 100%, but at least they are trying to break away from the usual cliches.
Catch them live if you can... Recommended.

This arrived at the same time as the new August Burns Red album, and a selection of beardcore from Four Year Strong. A quality delivery from the postman it was. However, this is by fast the most played of the albums that arrived on that awesome day.

I first saw Bury Tomorrow when they played a subheadliner set at my local toilet venue in Carlisle, the material was from their first album and the set was brutal with the most violent pit I've ever seen - people literally just hitting each other in the face, it was crazy. I got kicked in the hand during Casting Shapes and couldn't write for two weeks, which as a GP was a bit of a pain really. Anyway, that didn't stop me appreciating what an exciting new prospect this up and coming UK metal band were.

So, the new album. Even better than Portraits. There is no song quite like Casting Shapes, the nearest is Sceptres - its a bit less metal-core, they are clearly trying to broaden their appeal - but don't worry there are still a tonne of breakdowns and bass drops. As another reviewing mentioned its actually their clean vocals which make them stand out. Unlike early DWP the clean brutal alternation works really well without being cheesy here, probably because I would happily listen to the clean vocals alone if this was another band - the singing is actually very good, not cheesy and doesn't sound that American (they are British). The brutal vocals are as you would imagine, brutal. Its also nice to listen to a band whose drummer can teach you a few things too. I also really like the djenty guitars, really deep booming sound.

Best songs are The Maiden, Lionheart, An Honourable Reign, Knight Life, Bitemarks, Royal Blood, Abdictation of Power, 1603, Kingdom, and Sceptres.
