If you are a follower of metalcore then you will know that this band are one of the leaders in the field. It’s great to hear such teeth-rattling classics as “Ravage Ritual” and “A Fall Farewell” again while the inclusion of three brand new songs with the lead vocals of Corey Darst will ensure that hardcore fans (pun intended) will want this compilation even if they have some of the tracks. Interestingly, Darst sounds similar to previous vocals man Dan Weyandt though if anything his voice is even raspier. This beautifully produced package comes complete with a booklet featuring a comprehensive history of the band.
