This is the official J Morris the Review Guy album review for the second studio length album by Kentucky hardcore punk / metalcore band Knocked Loose, entitled A Different Shade of Blue!
Album type: Hardcore punk, metalcore, heavy hardcore.
Following their 2016 debut album Laugh Tracks, Knocked Loose returns with a record that's gotten some considerable acclaim.
A Different Shade of Blue, released on Pure Noise, like their first album, features a ferocious hardcore punk sound with metallic tendencies.
Their Metalcore breakdowns make logical sense much of the time, featuring progressions and vocal lines that easily add to them. Bryan Garris' high-pitched, screamo-esque (more hardcore punk than anything, of course) vocals are absolutely rip-roaring. The frazzled out guitars recall mathcore. The drums are so destructive. The production is great, too!
With A Different Shade of Blue, Knocked Loose without a doubt, easily claims one of my favorite metalcore / hardcore punk albums of the year thus far.
This album is available now on Pure Noise Records!
My favorite songs on this album are:
Belleville - Trapped in the Grasp of a Memory - A Serpent's Touch (Featuring Emma Boster) - By the Grave - In the Walls - Guided by the Moon - Mistakes Like Fractures - Forget Your Name (Featuring Keith Buckley) - Misguided Son.
My least favorite songs on this album are:
Road 23 - Denied by Fate.
