Jun 30, 2014Change is what led them to write the album they needed to, and in turn, left us listeners with the album we needed to hear. Change reminds us that we didn’t know Every Time I Die like we thought we did--but they sure read us to a tee with From Parts Unknown.
Jun 30, 2014Every Time I Die have established themselves as one of the more reliable and relatable (in a nervy, dysfunctional way) acts to come out of the genre, not to mention one of the most discernable, and the commanding From Parts Unknown does nothing to tarnish that reputation.
Nov 15, 2014Every Time I Die are seasoned veterans in the metal scene with a career spanning over fifteen years and seven albums. Even with a long careerEvery Time I Die are seasoned veterans in the metal scene with a career spanning over fifteen years and seven albums. Even with a long career that leaves many of their first fans in their late twenties and thirties, Every Time I Die just keeps improving. The boys are serious about making an impact with From Parts Unknown and grabthe legendary Kurt Ballou to create something that is nothing short of a masterpiece.
Every track will get the listeners blood pumping as Keith Buckley sounds more hectic and erratic than ever before. The opening song, The Great Secret, Legs' drumming demands respect and Andy and Jordan's riffs will fill the listener up with rage and excitement upon first listen. Before even finishing the album, I found myself daydreaming about seeing these songs live. Moor frames a very personal story about Keith's wife getting mugged while on tour. With some of his best lyrics yet, there is never a moment where Keith's storytelling and writing falls short.
The boys have always been able to build on their previous work but From Parts Unknown takes the best parts of their previous six albums and sends the listener to hell and back and then back to hell. This album is a sure crowd-ripper for years to come.… Expand
Sep 15, 2014I've been a fan of ETID since the first spin of Hot Damn!, and I have to say that this is my favorite album of theirs to date. It is easilyI've been a fan of ETID since the first spin of Hot Damn!, and I have to say that this is my favorite album of theirs to date. It is easily the heaviest, yet most memorable album of their discography. While I enjoy all of their previous albums, none of them really stick out in my head as truly memorable. From the opening blast of "Blow your $%^&ing brains out!" in the first track, to the guest vocals of Sean Ingram (of Coalesce) and Brian Fallon (of Gaslight Anthem), to the cock rock of "Decayin with the Boys", every note screams aggression and truly sticks out. Buy this album if you enjoy good solid melodic hardcore.… Expand
Jul 2, 2014One name: Kurt Ballou. He accentuates the punk/hardcore in everything he touches, and ETID have those two sounds in spades. This album kicksOne name: Kurt Ballou. He accentuates the punk/hardcore in everything he touches, and ETID have those two sounds in spades. This album kicks ass like a Converge album, with all the tasty little bits of cock-rocky **** that these guys have perfected on past albums. Bottom line: this is a real ripper.… Expand

Yeah I kinda do, and this album reminds me of it- lots of noise. It's decent, but there is nothing special about the vocals- they're not particularly heavy or melodic. The composition is generic- The drums aren't crazy, the guitar doesn't shine, bass is eh yeah I can't really hear it that well. Basically this album isn't anything we didn't already hear back in the 2000s with Underoath or DDG, and there isn't any one special feature to redeem it.… Expand
Sep 22, 2014Been a BIG fan since The Big Dirty... I just.... don't understand the hype for this album compared to their others? New Junk, GutterBeen a BIG fan since The Big Dirty... I just.... don't understand the hype for this album compared to their others? New Junk, Gutter Phenomenon and BD are all better all round packages. I think they have catchier hooks, are more recognisable and have more staying power...
This album is faster (in tempo AND in that it lasts for just 30 or so minutes... that's enough time for you to make love to your mum and catch the last couple of chords), thrashy, a little bit more obvious on the riffery and ever so slightly messy round the edges. Which is both a gift and an anchor that leaves it dragging me back to the unavoidable theory that... their previous albums are just a little bit better.
They are a **** brutal live band though, go check them out if you haven't already. Their energy and deliverance is on par.
Conclusion: They're still one of my Top 10 favourites, but this album isn't worth the hype.… Expand
Jun 3, 2015The only question I have is how is this praised? The music isn't what I'd call bad, but it's also not Every Time I Die's standard either..The only question I have is how is this praised? The music isn't what I'd call bad, but it's also not Every Time I Die's standard either.. Apparently the ratings have been super high everywhere, but I don't understand what I've been missing. This is just awful. Chaos is a good thing: hence the band Converge... But chaos can also be a bad thing: hence this album. It's all in how it's controlled. Converge are veterans and know how to make melody out of chaos.. This just sounds like a wannabee Converge not knowing what's going on at all.… Expand
Sep 9, 2014Easily the most overrated album of the year, and I would actually consider myself quite a fan of Every Time I Die, honestly. Those of usEasily the most overrated album of the year, and I would actually consider myself quite a fan of Every Time I Die, honestly. Those of us looking for a continuation of their older stuff and maybe even New Junk or Ex-Lives will be sorely disappointed. Album is chaotic (in a bad way), loud, and dissonant. I'll admit, I was hyped up when I heard about this but after hearing "Thirst" I was extremely disappointed. I figured the song was a fluke and decided to hear the rest upon release and it's all just as bad. "El Dorado" is pretty much the only tolerable song on here. This is new junk, but it's surely not aesthetic. How this garnered a 92 from critics boggles my mind. Guess I'll go back to listening to their old stuff. Let down is an understatement.… Expand
