PostSubject: Breakdowns that don't suck   Mon Oct 17, 2011 10:44 pm

I think we can all agree that bands that use breakdowns excessively, especially really generic ones, are lame. But when they're done well, they can rule pretty hard. What are some awesome/unique breakdowns that we actually like, either because of an odd time signature, perfect placement, or whatever else?

I hate this band and 95% of this genre, but this is just awesome:

There's a pretty sweet one here about 2:30 in:

Another one of my personal favorites, about 4:10 in. This is how chugging should be done:

I guess as this video claims, you could call this whole song one long breakdown. I much prefer Nile when they're doing this sort of slow, super heavy riffing over the really technical stuff:

3:30, holy shit:

Another classic, starting at about 2:10:

This song puts every other "breakdown" to shame:

I can't see/view videos so I have no idea what the first two posts are talking about Laughing

Anyway, heres what I have off the top of my head.

Ion Dissonance - This is the Last Time I Repeat Myself
The chorus/breakdown blows me away every time I hear it. The vocals are what make it for me.

Ion Dissonance - Play Dead... And I'll Play Along
This whole song is pure insanity, but the breakdown towards the end warrants its place here. The intensity of the music and vocals along with the bleak lyrics have made this one of my favorite breakdowns since I first heard it.

Daughters - The Theatre Goer
The breakdown in the middle of this song comes out of nowhere and completely crushes. The whole song up until that point is basically a giant build up to the breakdown, creating a bunch of tension which makes the breakdown that much more brutal.

Botch - Frequency Ass Bandit
Not much to say about this one. Just love it.

HORSE the band - Cutsman
Probably gonna be alone on this one, but I love everything this band has done. The breakdown in this song is one of the funnest breakdowns I've ever heard.

^ I posted the following:

War From a Harlot's Mouth - "If You Want to Blame us for Something Wrong, Please Abuse this Song"
Skinless - "Execution of Reason"
Aborted - "The Saw and the Carnage Done"
Nile - "4th Arra of Dagon"
Cryptopsy - "Benedictine Convulsions"
Suffocation - "Pierced From Within"

And the next post mentioned Infestor's "Chamber of Reunion."

Everything heavy and/or dynamic has it's place. It's just when you become Emmure or Suicide Silence that you turn into something horrendous.

Fixed. That breakdown puts every other breakdown in its place! Maybe I'm over-hyping it.... But it's Infester so I'm not. Beerbang

Alright...I know I'm going to get flak for this, but I like this band. I wish there were some things they did differently (like not having mediocre sung vocals IN EVERY SONG ON THIS ALBUM). But they're solid August Burns Red worship, and they're from central Pennsylvania, and they love Morrissey. That's all fine by me.

Anyway, this breakdown at about 2:15 is pretty awesome by metalcore standards, I think. Perfectly timed, and sandwiched between a neat little sample and some sweet demonic vocals. Plus the song is about the Salem witch trials, which is pretty bad-ass subject matter if you ask me.

I saw Motionless in White over the summer. I thought they'd have more of a black metal sound based on their outfits, but whoops, not even close xD I didn't really dig their music, but the crowd was so into them that it was actually a lot of fun to run around and mosh n shit.

I can't believe I forgot about this song. This one is so awesome I had to revive the thread specifically for it. About 3:30 in:
