Powerhouse hard rock slab
COMMENTS:
Eleventh official album for these industrial hard rockers. I've never given the band a fair shake, just dabbling. 'New Wave' is a powerhouse hard rock slab that leaves me wanting their back catalog. Opener 'Footsteps and Voices' has a huge, grinding groove with rap lyrics. 'Sid Vicious in a Dress' is the band's lead single following the 'new wave' ideology. However, 'Die on Your Feet' and 'Hostage' are every much the hard rock staples that Fozzy struck out with earlier this year. 'No White Flags' is a subdued slower track that's well written with Spider One's great vocal performance. People will say what they want...but this kicks total ass.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Fozzy, Ministry, Filter
