STAFF PICK: Unbroken, Life. Love. Regret. (New Age): "Before metalcore became a subgenre of a subgenre, there were a handful of actual hardcore bands incorporating metal into their sound. Unbroken is arguably one of the best. Their second album—Life. Love. Regret.—is an intensely passionate mix of '90s hardcore and Slayer-esque thrash. Many current bands owe a huge debt to Unbroken for helping to bridge the gap between hardcore and metal. It's a classic album that feels as urgent as ever." (Dirk)
