The Physics of Fire by Becoming the Archetype. I really enjoyed An Ocean Between Us though. Especially the vocals.

Yeah. The reason I think people like Terminate Damnation better, is because it's more raw.

The Physics of Fire was less raw, but no less technical & they changed up a few things.

I really liked the creepy vocals. But then again that's just me.

I agree. The clean vocals on The Physics of Fire are outstanding and that's rare in metal these. It's so much less emo. But the growls and the lead work was annoying. Anyway, any other talk about the Physics of Fire I'll talk about in their review page.

I think AOBU is their best album, notice how SAS came out and every other band sounded like that. The whole palm mute riff open note A string (tuned to G) anthem thing. This album is more creative by far, i like it alot. I gave it a 9.

And The Physics of Fire clean vox are soo amazing!

This was easily their best cd. I started to get tired of As I Lay Dying with their SAS cd. I only really liked one song on that cd, which was Through Struggle. This cd is very different from any of their other cds. It was produced, the guitar solos are good. The whole cd was just better. I gave it a 8 since I haven't given any cd a 10 yet, and since I gave Becoming the Archetype's "Terminate Damnation" a 9 and I think it is better than An "Ocean Between Us" I decided to give it a 8 which is still a good score.

I love this CD, great variety, awesome vocals (harsh and clean) awesome drums, awesome guitars, great bass, fantastic lyrics. All in all a very very good realease. Good mix of fast/thrashy with slower songs, couple of excellent solos. The Standout tracks for me were Forsaken, Seperation/Nothing Left, I Never Wanted and Wrath Upon Ourselves.

I finally picked this up and took a listen. It is really excellent. Shadows Are Security was absolutely horrid being one of the most generic metalcore albums I've heard, but this one took it heavier with way better guitar work and imrpoved screaming and clean vocals. 9 from me.

Tim's screaming has barely changed since AFWC (to my ears). He has always had one of the most powerful screams I've heard.
