After The Burial: Dig Deep

Album Review

Deathcore bruisers bounce back from tragedy

Following the untimely death of guitarist and founding member Justin Lowe in 2015, the future was uncertain for After The Burial.

 Their densely packed extreme metal was bolstered by Justin’s technical wizardry, so can the first album without him hold a candle to their previous four releases? In short: yes. The Minnesotans’ trademark brand of progressive deathcore (like a techy Whitechapel) hurtles towards you at 100mph from the off before slamming into you. Repeatedly. There is absolutely zero fucking around – it’s an industrialised metal killing machine laden with monstrous muted chugging, bombastic drum blasts and even an airhorn.
