Two years after their second album “The Weight Of Silence”, Belgium’s Reject The Sickness returns with an album so mercilessly crushing and heavy that you have to experience it to believe it. 2019’s in-between EP “The New Chapter” already indicated that Reject The Sickness were travelling on a new path towards musical maturity. With “While Our World Dissolves” this journey has been completed with astonishing results exceeding the promise of the earlier EP.
“While Our World Dissolves” is a bulldozer recording with which Reject The Sickness definitely throws off the yoke of the metalcore tag. The nine songs firmly embrace the spirit of melodic death/thrash metal. The production for which the band signed themselves is modern yet ageless at the same time. Reject The Sickness managed to combine a stream lined sound with songs that bathe in an enhanced heaviness andimpact never before heard from this band. Even more jaw-dropping is the fact that Reject The Sickness’ trademark sense for memorable melody is preserved all the same. So, brace yourself for Reject The Sickness’ quality attack of staccato riff-driven death/thrash. The songs work perfectly together as a unit and they all have their unique melodic signature to prevent the phantom of boredom staining the listening experience. With “While OurWorld Dissolves”, Reject The Sickness confidently have conquered their authentic place in today’s melodic death/thrash landscape. Aficionados of Obscura, Testament, Dissection, Meshuggah, Morbid Angel, In-Quest, Gojira, Dark Angel, Pestilence and At The Gates are facing an obligatory listen and, for sure, a rewarding journey through the meanwhile unique metal vision of Reject The Sickness. Be sure to heed this call before our world dissolves!
