The new Despised Icon album, “Day of Mourning” dropped today, despite reading three times over that “they made a leap towards traditional metal” I really just don't hear it. If a few less pig squealed “breee’s” and a few more riffs means that they are a not a death-core band anymore than sure, I just don't foresee this album winning the band over very many new fans the way Job for a Cowboy’s “Ruination” did them. If you like this band, pick up the album; if you are on the fence, borrow it from a friend, if you just really don't like them I don't expect this album will do much to change that. Here is title track “Day of Mourning” .
