Reject the Sickness delivers a hard-hitting and diverse album with “The Weight of Silence," blending metalcore anthems with melodic death riffs and plenty of hooks. The record defies categorization to a certain extent, blending more traditional death metal with elements of hardcore - but probably not the elements you expect.
