SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on August 28, 2006 at 4:01 pm

Note: This is the second album from the band that features Slipknot’s vocalist (Corey Taylor) and guitarist (James Root).
Sound: A review of several Metal trends of the last 15 years – from the heavier (chunky, rhythmic guitars and bruising percussion with a mix of sung and screamed vocals) to the rock-radio friendly (soaring, anthemic and angsty hooks) to borderline poppy (acoustic guitar or piano-driven power ballads).
Playlist Partners: Papa Roachicon, Powerman 5000icon, Kornicon, Staindicon, acoustic Stone Temple Pilotsicon, acoustic Alice In Chainsicon
Heavy Rotation track:30/30-150icon
Medium Rotation tracks:1st Personicon“; “Come What(ever) Mayicon“; “Socioicon
Recommended: The band pulls off an impressive array of styles (highlighted by Taylor’s vocal range and chops) that suggests they’re more well-rounded and talented than most of their contemporaries. However, Come What(ever) May becomes frustratingly schizophrenic. It’s unlikely many people will appreciate everything on it, but it’s worth hearing to find out what works for you.
Grade: B
