2013 and 1/3: The Best Albums of the 2010s (So Far)

Integrity: The Blackest CurseIntegrity: The Blackest Curse (Deathwish Inc., 6/8/10)


Integrity: “Simulacra”

Integrity is one of the forebears of the “metal-core” sub-genre, but the band’s sound might be best recognized for its vocals — the hellish, pained screams of Dwid Hellion. With its first full album since 2003, Integrity has hit a new peak, with dive-bombing guitar squeals over blazing speed riffs and chugging breakdowns.

Fans will love The Blackest Curse, and younger metal-core addicts will discover a band that has influenced many of their contemporary favorites.
