Every time I listen to I Let It In And It Took Everything I come out of it with palpitations, like an adrenaline rush of power, and an unconditional will to play it again. It's finally for me the first metal album of the year that really brings me satisfaction (there's Naiv by Thy Catafalque but it's not really comparable since it's a very multi-genre UFO) because beyond the immense total emotion that the Liverpool band is able to offer, there's a perfect balance between brutality, devotion and reality that makes I Let It In And It Took Everything a human and fascinating experience at the same time.
If this balance is also perfectly controlled and executed, it's because Loathe juggles between charismatic metalcore that gives way to rampage and sincere nu-metal to capture the essence of the emotion. The construction of the album is just as captivating because the preference to keep the songs rather short, with concise writing, working perfectly on the transitions allows the listener to always remain concerned. Finally I will say that the melodies are so effective that it will be hard for you not to succumb to I Let It In And It Took Everything
