MEMPHIS MAY FIRE‘s “Remade In Distress” comes shortly after the equally titled SILVERSTEIN launch “Distress Made Me”. And whereas the musical types are barely totally different, each bands appear to have arrived on the identical conclusion a number of albums into their respective careers: Ache could also be disagreeable and all too persistent, however it’s a part of their identification. Embracing struggling is one thing everybody should ultimately do to achieve emotional maturity, and that is maybe doubly true for acts that run in metalcore circles. By accepting this fact, MEMPHIS MAY FIRE additionally sound like they’ve totally developed their sonic identification.

Lyrically, their seventh file portrays somebody who’s wounded however decided to outlive, but nonetheless floundering once in a while of their confidence. Laborious-hitting, fast-paced, aggressive tracks like “Blood & Water” and “Bleed Me Dry” present foils for slower, extra melodic, pop-leaning tracks like “Anyone” and “Make Imagine”. Conviction and uncertainty could appear to be opposing ideas, however finally, the closing ballad, “The Combat Inside”, reconciles that they’re two sides of the identical coin, saying: “I is perhaps misplaced till I attain the tip / however I will preserve movin’.”

By way of sound, MEMPHIS MAY FIRE have struck a strong stability between their metalcore roots and their pop, digital and even rap influences. The heaviness that launched the band’s profession gives the spine for this file, whereas the opposite types lend totally different flavors to the 11-track work. The band sound positive of themselves, which is satisfying in and of itself. However one space that has all the time held them again somewhat is their principally predictable tune construction. The largest shock on “Remade In Distress” is the FIRE FROM THE GODS singer’s look on “Solely Human (feat. AJ Channer)”. His decrease register rapping and unclean vocals present glorious distinction to Matty Mullins‘s higher-pitched melodies. Channer‘s supply is particularly intriguing, like when he performs on the tune’s title with slant-rhyming lyrics resembling, “I am similar to you, man.”

Although the file falls in need of mind-blowing, “Remade In Distress” is filled with power and is dynamic sufficient to be gratifying. Greater than that, although, the album’s success comes within the type of confidence, even in moments of emotional confusion and vulnerability. MEMPHIS MAY FIRE are clearly professionals.
