Fozzy: All That Remains
1

Sound — 10
This is an awesome album from one of this decades best bands so far, proving that not all modern Metal has to be fast and screaming. The Bass playing is something to be marveled at. Sean Delson is one of the most elaborate bass players in a rock band for many, many years. The guitarists, who are Billy Grey, are also a revalation, some insane riffs and wonderful solos show off the talent that they seems to possess. The sound is very well produced, giving each instrument fair coverage.

Lyrics — 9
Chris Jericho can do everything, sing, shout and scream. He appears to have a very versitile voice that can bend itself to any riff. The lyrics also fit the songs very well, From the title track "All that Remains" to the album closer "Born of Anger" and the album opener "Nameless Faceless" the lyrics seem to be a perfect match to the actual music, whether they be angry, sad or just generally passionate.

Overall Impression — 10
Overall, many people would say that this album is an ordinary run-of-the-mill American Metal album. But Fozzy's riffs are some of the best of any band. The solos are shreding genius and the bass playing is totally out of this world. This band, who have been to Download festival, have the potenial to be great. More songs like The Title track and "The Test" and less like "Enemy" they could be a great metal band.

    loner4life, based on your words it seems like you watch wrestling. Ever since Jericho started talking about being in a band, I have always wanted to hear this cd. I'm totally not into the screaming metal, in fact, I COMPLETELY despise it. I want to hear this cd sooo bad.
