Kingdom Of Sorrow - Kingdom Of Sorrow
If you go a little bit back in time to a band called Audioslave you know that not every super group has the same success as the other members’ bands. With Kingdom Of Sorrow it probably will be a bit of the same story. The music sounds good, aggressive and well-thought, but there still remains a voice in your head, which says: “I like Down, Crowbar and Hatebreed better.”
If you listen to the music you’ll hear Hatebreeds vocals (and once in a while a breakdown a la Hatebreed), Crowbars vocals and Downs riffs. A real negative point is the clean singing of Jamey. His screams are perfect, but he also has some constraints. Constraints aren’t a big thing, but if you have them you shouldn’t experiment that much with your voice. Just stick it to your normal style.
This music isn’t world shocking, it isn’t bad either, but with names like Jamey Jasta and Kirk Windstein I had expected way more!

|Wasn't expecting a 70% score, I'm amazed....The songs I've heard on their Myspace are sounding very good....|

The music is good if it was an unknown band, but with Jamey and Kirk in it, it's just Down with Hatebreed vocals...
Nothing really special if you know what they are capable of.

|it's not Jamey who sings clean dude. I do completely agree with your review, I've heard the album numerous times now but it just doesn't get to me.|

I don't mean literally clean singing, but for example his voice on With Unspoken Words
