…and Ronnie and/or Johnny Van Zant gargled gravel, they would sound like Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. Thank God Dallas Taylor was “asked to leave” Underoath, otherwise we would not have 3 fantastic releases from this band. Not quite as hardcore as the previous 2, yet no less rocking, MATSOD branch out with a more melodic album that will get stuck to your brain for days (Just try and get the chorus of Just a Shock out of your head). A few banjos thrown in with a bit of clean singing from Dallas along with their Skynyrd from hell 3 guitar attack and you’ve got an excellent release that in the end unfortunately, will only see the light of day for metal music lovers willing to experience more than your everyday hardcore metal release. Definitely one of my favorite cds I’ve purchased this year.
