SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on May 30, 2005 at 4:59 pm

Sound: Ass-kicking Metal that falls somewhere between Black Sabbathicon’s doomsday sludge, Panteraicon’s crunchy, riff-heavy aggression and Downicon’s southern-fried, steel-toed boot-stompin’ blues (i.e. classic mid-90s, Pepper Keenan-fronted COC)
Note: This is their first studio album in five years, the fourth studio album with Pepper Keenan on lead vocals, and the eighth studio album in the band’s 22-year career
Heavy Rotation tracks:Paranoid Opioidicon“; “Infinite Waricon“; “Rise River Riseicon“;
It Is That Wayicon“; “Stonebreakericon
Medium Rotation track:Dirty Hands Empty Pockets/Already Goneicon
Recommended: They’re not doing much here that they and others haven’t done in the past, but it’s a high caliber and much-needed release that may do more than any other album this year to keep the Metal torch burning.
Grade: A- (Top Albums of 2005 candidate)
