Review: Miss May I – At Heart (Album)

Read our thoughts on the new album from Miss May I – metal at its best!

Band: Miss May I
Release: At Heart (Album)
Release Date: Out Now

Ohio-based metallers Miss May I have just released their new album, ‘At Heart’. There’s no mediocre metalcore here as the album packs in a tremendous amount of massive riffs, throat-ripping screams and insane drumming.

First track on the album, bar the intro, is ‘Hey Mister’. Instantly kicking into finger-splitting riffs and beating drums, it’s clear that Miss May I are only rising and growing with each album. The twist of melodic vocals blends perfectly with the raw screams and heavy backdrop. Their style is so energetic, fulfilling the wishes of every metal head with good taste. Think Killswitch Engage meets As I Lay Dying meets In Flames. It might sound like a bit of a mix match but it works! It’s everything amazing all thrown in together – soaring vocals, insanely heavy riffs and breaks, with amazingly technical traits mixed in.

The album as a whole flows immensely well from one roaring heavy track to another. Everything you want is found in this album: bass drops, break downs, screeching guitars, gruff vocals, melodics and foot beats are only a few to mention!  There’s even a slow track in the name of ‘Found Our Way’. By slow, it starts off in a distorted, dazy fashion before breaking into soaring vocals and then back to the standard heavy beats everyone wants. It could count for half?

Ending the album off on a perfect note, ‘Ballad Of A Broken Man’ is full of traditional metal riffs and slides, gut-wrenching vocals and more intense drums. It’s one final punch in the stomach before the distorted instruments fade away.

Seriously, if you call yourself a metal fan, you need this album in your life. Miss May I have done a great job with this one!

10/10
