  • Summary: Said to be a much darker and heavier than previous releases from the metal band, Congregation of the Damned is the quintet's fifth studio album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. It would be a disservice to how good of an album Congregation of the Damned is to say it’s not as heavy as older material in Atreyu’s catalog.
  2. Provided you don't have an unreasonable dislike of melody, you'll enjoy the majority of tracks on this album. Even if that does make you feel a bit dirty.
  3. Atreyu has resharpened its teeth on its new album, "Congregation of the Damned," which features the return of Varkatzas' deadly scream. But the set still features somber moments.
  4. There are some solid breakdowns to sink your teeth into, and the choruses are still huge and anthemic, but the rest might be a little too watered down for serious metalcore devotees.
  5. The wicked dueling guitars of Dan Jacobs and Travis Miguel are about the only saving grace, but even the wildest arpeggio run can't save Congregation from near-total damnation. [Dec 2009, p.116]
