Aversions Crown
Xenocide
Company: Nuclear Blast
Release: 2017
Genre: Metalcore/Hardcore
Reviewer: David Loveless
Published: 4/6/2017

Typical deathcore album that feels a bit over produced
COMMENTS:
On Xenocide, Australia's Aversions Crown bring us another typical deathcore album filled with blast beats, breakdowns, and plenty of guttural vocals. Although the production is a bit better than 2014's Tyrant, it seems way too over-produced and very mechanical at times. Doesn't seem like a huge step up in the writing department either, but there are some memorable tracks such as "Ophiophagy", "Cycles of Haruspex", and "Hybridization". Fans of the deathcore/metalcore genre will probably love Xenocide, but not much versatility on here to reach a broader audience.
