This is a great album. Yes, since dave died, they have never quite recovered, until now as they are given new life, reborn with the help of soils’ former lead singer Ryan Mccombs. Great metal, and power vocals. Its to bad this conglomeration didn’t happen earlier, but Soil was solid as well at that time, riding high on the Scars album. Soil and Drowning pool were close, toured the nation together at the time of Dave’s death, in fact Ryan and Dave use to sing with eachothers groups periodically. So thank goodness this happened. I can just say its solid from start to finish, can’t pick any favorites yet, but full circle and Soldier are awesome. This is a must have for metal fans, just a great power album. This will get your blood flowing. Check it out.
