Pedal-to-the-floor hard rock you say? It can only be FFDP...
If you’re not a fan of lowest common denominator, pedal-to-the-floor hard rock that suits pumping iron and entering WWE rings, look away now. If Disturbed and Stone Sour are your thing however, you really can’t go wrong here. It’s more of the same in terms of the FFDP sound, but with Draiman’s platinum warriors out of the way now, ‘American Capitalist’ announces them as the world champions at post-Black album piledriving riffs and soaring, US radio-friendly melodies. To knock it for being dumb would be to miss the point entirely.
Please note, this review was incorrectly published in Issue 154 of Rock Sound with a score of 5. It should have been an 8. We apologise unreservedly.
There's been some actual news this week. The Movielifereformed, Fightstarreturned from hiatus, and then there was Emoji Artworks. But sadly, today is our last #notthenews round-up of 2014. Try to hold back those tears while we recap all of this week's nonsense.
