Despite the cast of known characters (David Ragsdale and Damian Wilson to name a few), I am sorry to say it did not convince me like I expected. Maybe my expectations just were to high, or I should give it a few more spins. It´s not bad mind you, but it just didn´t stick. Some really good progressive ideas though, so time will tell.
Soil, Scars, 2001
Holy smoke, these guys take no prisoners. Labelled as nu metal, but I totally like their songs. The band show a lot of attitude. It grooves and kicks ass from start to finish. This just plainly rocks hard, yet stays melodic.
Highly recommended for any rock lover.
This band got labelled as post grunge alternative, but to me that is just wrong. This is (hard)rock with a modern twist. The album shows depth in the song writing department, so don´t let the parental advisory sticker tell you otherwise. Very diverse, great and hard rocking record. And still enough light and dark to keep it interested. My only complaint is it´s length. A few songs more would be nice gentlemen…
