Normal Metal And Gamer Reviewer!
thyultimategamer In Waves is a fantastic album. A lot of people have dismissed it's being not as technical or heavy as Shogun. While this is partially true, as In Waves lacks the progressive thrash elements that Shogun had, this record is both more melodic and catchy, but also heavier in some places.

The first thing you must note is that you can't judge the album based on the title track. I personally love the song, but I can understand why it makes people nervous, with the plethora of metalcore-esque breakdowns and the radio-friendly song-structure, but the album as a whole is not a chugga-chugga radio-single fest as some would have you believe.

All that aside, let me get into the music itself. As I mentioned before, the progressive elements are significantly diminished, with fewer guitar solos and shorter songs, but the melodies are fantastic. Matt Heafy's singing has improved a lot since the early days and you can really hear it this time around. The screaming has also gotten a lot more dynamic, with more variety than any Trivium record to date. Metalcore screams of past endeavors are now supplemented by almost death metal sounding growls and it sounds fantastic.

Instrumentally, In Waves dominates. The new drummer Nick Augusto does a great job, and while his style is really a matter of personal taste, I feel like I must defend his technical ability. He delivers some great fills throughout and even includes a few blast beats. The guitars are great as always, with shorter more concise grooves than Shogun or the Crusade. There are less solos and lead fills, but they're still there, and they shred. There's a ton of variety too, ranging from more simple melodic grooves to brutal onslaughts in the heavier songs.

All in all, it's a great heavy metal album, and I definitely recommend picking it up.

caiomz Close your eyes and begin to relax. Take a deep breath, and let it out
slowly. Concentrate on your breathing. With each breath you become more
relaxed. Imagine a brilliant white light above you, focusing on this light as
it flows through your body. Allow yourself to drift off as you fall deeper and
deeper into a more relaxed state of mind. Now as I count backward from ten to
one, you will fill more peaceful, and calm. Ten. Nine. Eight. Seven. Six. You
will enter a safe place where nothing can harm you. Five. Four. Three. Two. If
at any time you need to came back, all you must do is open your eyes. One. #regression #watch #clock #dreamtheater #fob

metropolis1990 30 day song challenge
Day 5
A song that reminds you of someone

A Change Of Seasons - Dream Theater

Reminds me of two of my close friends Lewis and Alex who are avid DT fans as well. We all love a good sing a long and this is a favourite of ours amongst many others. Was hard to chose a song or people in particular but I felt this fit best!

thyultimategamer Enemy of God (12/10) - In my opinion, the best song on the cd. A fantastic opener that never lets up. Great song to sing along with. It feels like it has three choruses, but really only one. A very epic sound, and great solos and lyrics.

Impossible Brutality (10/10) - This song reminds me alot of the Violent Revolution album. Mid-paced song with a great chorus and intelligent lyrics.

Suicide Terrorist (9/10) - This one will grow on you quickly. Direct and to the point. No fat whatsoever.

World Anarchy (9/10) - I would give this 10/10, but it reminds me a bit too much of the title track. A great, fast song with, again, very good lyrics.

Dystopia (10/10) - A perfect example of why Kreator is the greatest thrash band around. The chorus reminds me of the work on Outcast. One of my favorites on the cd.

Voices of the Dead (11/10) - Mille tries something a little different on this song and it sounds great. Extremely catchy. Not poppy, mind you, by any means, just catchy. "Tonight I hear you whisper deep inside my head!" Just a great song

Murder Fantasies (10/10) - Sounds like Extreme Aggression! Features a guest guitar solo from Michael Ammott (Arch Enemy, Carcass). Enough said.

When Death Makes It's Dominion (8/10) - Another mid-paced thrasher similar to Impossible Brutality. I love the breakdown before the chorus.

One Evil Comes, A Million Follow (9/10) - Again, very much reminds me of Outcast. Think Phobia, but more melodic.

Dying Race Apocalypse (12/10) - Just a hair behind Enemy of God as my favorite song on the album. Awsome acoustic guitar intro followed by the heaviest, most lyrically intense song on the cd.

Under a Total Blackened Sky (10/10) - Save some of the best for last. An amazing piece of thrash brutality.

The Ancient Plague (11/10) - This song also has a very epic feel to it. Great lyrics, leads, riffseverything perfect. There are spoken word parts that add an infinite amount of depth to the song. "A savior appears, in a red mask in front of me And Satan is his name!"
