Metalcore certainly has become a dirty word within the scene, hasn’t it? It’s a subgenre so oversaturated with mediocre, unproven-yet-entitled bullshitters that it’s a little surprising when a young band stick to their guns and release a pretty good record under the guise of it being metalcore. That’s what Miss May I have done with their third full-length, At Heart; there’s no overly processed vocals, no obvious bass drops, no overwrought ballads and no Ke$ha covers on this album--just a shitload of massive riffs, guttural screams and metronomic drumming tightly squeezed into a mostly fun, concise package. It’s neither revelatory nor offensive; it’s just good, and an album in which most recovering metalheads should find something to enjoy. Or, more directly, If you vibed to Unearth and/or Killswitch Engage around the turn of the century, there’s a lot you’ll like here.
