Review

Packed to the brim with breakdowns, singing/screaming vocal swapping and the ubiquitous “bass bomb,” We Will All Evolve, the second album from Our Last Night, delivers ten solid tracks of metal-core fury. Treading in territory similar to contemporaries like Atreyu and Asking Alexandria, the band delivers everything you’d expect from them in terms of cathartic aggression. It’s hard to deny that this is a rollercoaster of an album. The changes between the albums heavier moments and the singing passages manage to take the album from meat-headed aggression to uplifting, with songs like “Into the Future” showing a real reverence for the genres emo-punk roots with almost soaring guitar work making the song feel hopeful without allowing it to get too light. The end passages of “Across the Ocean” have a similar dynamic, maintaining enough of an edge during the more positive sections that the crushing breakdown that closes the songs out doesn’t feel too out of place. All in all, We Will All Evolve should be an easy hit for fans of Our Last Night. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
