Stone Sour - House Of Gold & Bones Part 1

Rating: 8

Based on Corey Taylor’s fictional tale of a man faced with the choice of growing up or sheltering in the irresponsibility of youth, ‘House Of Gold & Bones Part 1’ finds Stone Sour thriving like never before. In embracing the narrative on this first instalment of a double concept album, they’ve created a gargantuan record that truly gives the sense that you’re joining them on a journey. Sure, that’s an incredibly cliché thing to say, but songs like roof-raising anthem ‘Absolute Zero’, the frenetic, thrashy ‘RU 486’ and acoustic lament ‘Taciturn’ deserve to be heard within the context of the entirety of this mightily ambitious, versatile record.
