Though still a fiery album and one that is representative of a group that remains solidly upper-tier, I found “Day of Mourning” somewhat less electrifying and energetic than “The Ills of Modern Man” , but that could just be me and the sentiment is far from a condemnation.

You can tell that while the well of poetry has run dry, the ability to create punishing riffs shines on. I’m not desspised a fan of pig squeals, but Despised Icon was the one band that could pull off the pig squeal and make it sound good in their music.
Finally, there’s a few songs where group “gang” vocals are used, it’s really annoying, and ruins the songs. It was released September 22, through Century Media Records. Those seem to be the two albums that are most similar to the older style of Despised Icon.
The most noticeable change is that Steve’s low growl has changed, for the worse. For example the final track “Sleepless” has lyrics such as “Another morning when I feel more rotten than alive. Musically, the riffs remain strong, and the drumming is a new high for Despised Icon. Unfortunately, vocals on this album lead to yet more disappointment. US Heatseekers Albums Billboard .
CD Reviews – Day Of Mourning Despised Icon –
The riffing is not as emphasized as cion was on prior releases, but when it comes out, it shines. Fear not though as the majority of the album is still utterly punishing, heaving, breakdown filled assaults that Despised Icon are know for: This page was last edited on 2 Marchat Double bass is nearly constant, which is coupled with unrelenting speed on the rest of the kit.
Now deslised the upside of the CD; There’s all new guitar solos!! Another bad ass upside to the album is the all new breakdowns, if you’re a breakdown fan this album is full of gnarly breakdowns in nearly every song.

The album is really boring and uncreative. There is some technicality in the guitar work on this album but generally, the guitars are there to be heavy and in your face. Alex P’s drumming is still tight, fast, intense, and in your face. Would I recommend this album? So now with yet another line up tweak that sees guitarist Ben Landreville and bassist Max Lavelle join the fold, Despised Icon have unleashed their fourth album, with relatively little fanfare and for those that enjoyed the last two efforts, have no fear, Despised Icon are still one of the most savage and tight acts in metal today, despite what the haters think.
Yes, something Despised Icon has started doing lately, despiser it works! Though still a fiery album and one that is despissd of a group that remains solidly upper-tier, I found “Day of Mourning” somewhat less electrifying and energetic than “The Ills of Modern Man”but that could just be me and the sentiment is far from a condemnation. Hidden comments will still appear to the user and to the ivon Facebook friends. The bass is sadly often inaudible, but then again, in this style of dxy, that’s often the case.
The gang vocals on this album are also heavily overused, which adds to the disappointment. Lyrically and vocally, the album falls short by a mile.
There’s not a song that really catches your attention. From their cocked hats and Vans to their clinical triggered sound and shift from grindcore to breakdown filled deathcore, the band has been the poster child for what many folks see what is wrong with modern extreme metal.
Alex E’s high pitched scream is still there, and sounds as brutal as ever. Day of Mourning
