EDITORS’ NOTES

On Drowning Pool’s second album to feature feral howler Jasen Moreno, the veterans up the ante with a dark, menacing crunch that blurs the line between alt-metal and extreme metal. On “Drop” and “All Saints Day” their trademark guitar riffs are wedded to rhythms that, in their blistering intensity, border on hardcore punk. Even on the fairly melodic “By the Blood,” the group threatens to rip through the very fabric of the tune with Pantera-like rage. Musicians tend to mellow with age—not Drowning Pool.

Can I get a Hellelujah?? Amen!

This album is by far the best Drowning Pool record! The riffs are thick, the bass and drums heavy and driving, and Jasen absolutely kills it on vocals! There is so much aggression and raw emotion in this record, and the songs are catchy as hell! Standout tracks would definitely be "We are the Devil," "Another Name," and "Goddamn Vultures!" Can't wait to see them play the new record live!

Awesome

Just good heavy music. More bands from back in the day need to kick teeth in again!

Haven't heard this DP in 15 years!

Loved sinner as a kid and still loved it.. But I haven't really been into anything they've put out since Dave passed. Nothing against the band but the sound just hasn't really been for me. But this really reminds me of Sinner and I can definitely get into this!
