Awakening Play

The third full-length album from Christian metalcore band blessthefall, the second release with Beau Bokan and the first with guitarist Elliott Gruenberg, who came on board after the departure of Mike Frisby, Awakening was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette, who also produced the band’s previous album, Witness. Not much has changed, with plenty of screams, drop-tuned guitars, and double bass drums pushing things along, so fans will not be disappointed in this one. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Hollow Bodies Play

This fourth album from the Arizona metalcore quintet is the follow-up to 2011's Awakening. Produced by Joey Sturgis (Emmure, the Devil Wears Prada), it's the band's heaviest album to date, its poppy choruses with clean vocals colliding head-on with brutal chugging riffs, harsh roars, and synth and lead work that give parts of it a Gothenburg feel. The digital singles "You Wear a Crown But You're No King" and "Déjà Vu" are included., Rovi

Witness Play

It wasn't entirely clear if Phoenix-based post-hardcore act Blessthefall could rebound after the departure of frontman Craig Mabbitt so soon after the release of their 2007 debut. Two years on, it appears to have been little more than a minor bump in the road as the band, and new lead vocalist Beau Bokan, take the reigns with more confidence than ever before on their 2009 follow-up, Witness. Featuring a characteristically crisp and taut production by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, the album's sweetly melodic choruses complement a high-flying, metal-edged musicianship that incorporates face-melting fretwork, crushing double-bass breakdowns, and guttural death growls. ~ Dave Shim, Rovi
