Want a tip of a great emo/metal album with supermelodic choruses in the punkpop vein? Then the answer is the new album from A Change Of Pace. I thought their debut was strong but this one is even stronger, "Prepare the masses" takes the band on the right direction to the stadium rockband they rightfully deserve to be. These guys grew up listening to Story of the year and Taking Back Sunday, now they?re just as good and could very well start headlining upcoming tours if this one start selling which I hope it will. It?s time to put A Change of Pace on the map of emo for good, I can imagine how big the awesome "I?m alive" can sound at any arena. The catchy "Weekend warriors" should conquer the airwaves on radio if there?s any logic to it, the opening track "Prepare the masses" is as massive as a caravan of trucks heading your way. 46 minutes you want to hear over and over again so load your iPod?s now - you won?t regret it!
Temple of the Dog was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. It was conceived by vocalist Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. The line-up included Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar, Jeff Ament on bass guitar (both ex-members of Mother Love Bone), Mike McCready on lead guitar, Matt Cameron on drums, and Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) providing some lead and backing vocals.
