Miss May I
Miss May I’s fifth offering snatches the memorable moments from their more recent material and centers them around their blistering, unrelenting metalcore roots. Deathless boasts unabashed, vehement aggression (“I.H.E.,” “Deathless”), prodigious cuts (“Bastards Left Behind,” “Arise”) and brooding songwriting (“Trust My Heart (Never Hope To Die),” “The Artificial”) to formulate some of the band’s most poignant material to date. Frontman Levi Benton and guitarist/clean vocalist Ryan Neff discover their true niche carefully tempering the band’s heavy attack impulses with more accessible moments. While a slight sense of overkill kicks in towards the record’s end, MMI manage to keep Deathless engrossing enough to have you headbanging nearly every second of the way.
