TJ (the "other" guitarist) sings a few of the songs- maybe 4? He sounds pretty similar to Larson, except Erik's got a little more range and is slightly less gravelly. I only mention it because you might not even notice (since I've seen them live a couple times, I knew). Anyway, this album smokes! I think I like the slower stuff best, but we aren't talking ballads here- more like mid-tempo head banging stuff. Every song has a thick groove, ala ATP (no surprise). Plus, you gotta love the Pantera spoof/rip-off ("I Don't Even Like Pantera Anymore").
This would be on my top 10 of 2010, but I think the official release is '11, so I'm guessing it'll make that list.
Perfectly said. I really enjoy this cd. Much better than I thought. This & the new Suplecs are 2 smokin' early 2011 releases by SS. It will be interesting to see if these can be topped.
