Deathcore squad Knights of the Abyss kick up a maelstrom of metallic malevolence on their 10-track sonic soiree. Ripping out a feral assault that melds death metal vocals, beatdown hardcore rhythms, and menacing midtempo modern metal, tracks like "I Pledge Agrievance" and "Hell Bent" show your ears no mercy as they use the most ruthless elements possible to systematically break you down into shards of human flesh. Even though this band is unquestionably bludgeoning and way brutal, you could point to a good number of bands who utilize the same style and barely hear a difference, which is really the only thing wrong with JUGGERNAUT, rendering this disc lacking of individuality, ultimately hindering Knights of the Abyss' ability to stand out amongst the savage pack.
