Released on 28th April, metalcore band Death Remains released their sophomore album Destroy/Rebuild. This is a hard hitting heavy record that truly understands metalcore, finding a midpoint, a balance between both hardcore and metal.

Opening with semi title track Destroy, the album starts heavy with blast beats and heavy riffs leading the song. Whilst the breakdown on this song isn’t as hard hitting as other metalcore bands, the post breakdown bass line is unmistakably hardcore, and more than makes up for this. Furthermore perfectly epitomizes the seamless balance between hardcore and metal that is achieved on this record. The record continues this perfect blend, even when more melodic vocals are introduced. The standout songs of the album are Endure and Survive and Hardship as they combine brilliantly heavier vocals, group shouting vocals (synonymous with hardcore) as well as melodic vocals which are produced to such a high standard they don’t sacrifice the heavy nature of this record.
