Listening to this album, specifically the screams, you can't even tell that their frontman, Austin Carlile has had two open heart surgeries. If that wasn't impressive enough, look at the lyrics, and the music. They put a lot of work into The Flood, you can clearly tell. Its not easy to release a good album that screams through most of it. That takes true talent.
Its honestly difficult to choose a favorite song on the album. If pressed to choose though, I'd have to say either "Product Of A Murderer" or "Purified." Neither is for a real reason, but I do love the sound Austin makes at the beginning of "Product Of A Murderer" a lot. More screamers need to make that sound in songs, it adds something to the song that wouldn't be there without it.
Of Mice and Men released a great album if you haven't checked it out yet, go do it right now. I give this album five, well deserved stars.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
