SYNDICATE

Sound: Their blend of metal hooks, hardcore screams and punk energy reached incredible heights on 2003’s Sing the Sorrow (my #1 album of 2003). The follow-up still features Davey Havok’s impressive shifts from soaring wails to guttural growls and the band’s anthemic gang chants and group-sing choruses. This time, though, their usual tone of despair brightens in spots and allows for some surprisingly poppy moments and cleaner production.
Heavy Rotation tracks:Miss Murdericon“; “Summer Shuddericon“; “The Killing Lightsicon“; “Afflictionicon
Medium Rotation track:The Missing Frameicon
Recommended: Decemberunderground can’t boast the non-stop barrage of classics that Sing The Sorrow has, and at times it feels too refined. There are several highlights, though, and this will still be one of the best rock albums of the year.
