Modern Life Is War - Witness (2005)

Genre: Hardcore

Modern Life Is War are band that take a slower more lethargic approach to hardcore than most of their peers, although slower does generally also mean heavier. There are moments on this album that are just crippingly heavy, such as on the track 'Marshalltown', which gives off a feeling of despair that is reflected by the distorted guitars, muddy bass and relentlessly heavy drums. The chanting at the end of 'D.E.A.D.R.A.M.O.N.E.S' is just plain awesome as well, and the lyrics are generally fantastic, making this one of my favourite hardcore albums and an instant classic.
