Australia's Capture the Crown bring a heavy dose of straightforward metalcore aggression on this, their second LP. The album contains far fewer electronic elements—and harmonic riffs—than their synth-laden 2012 release, 'Til Death,' underscoring the scene’s shift toward a more authentic hardcore sound. The result is an intense, if repetitive and less original, breakdown-infused sound, spruced up with memorable choruses, like on standouts “Red Light District” and “Smirk.” While the new sound may alienate a few old fans, 'Reign of Terror' is a solid album that should win over just as many new converts.

Blasting through meaty breakdowns and clean choruses, ‘To Whom It May Concern’ is an undoubted highlight that slightly deviates from the formula.
