Considering this album was a decade in the making, youíd think they could write more concentrated songs that progress and evolve, but that didnít happen here. If youíre into groove oriented metal, or wanna hear some modern metal with a bluesy twang, go for it, but other wise you arenít missing anything great by skipping South of Salem, just something fairly good.
South Sugar
I really couldn't get into this record. Mostly for the two reasons you cited here. And for some reason, though incredible in their own right, the vocals somehow seem out of place with the band's sound.

Yeah, I kind of feel that way sometimes. There are moments I think it works fine but other moments, not so much.

Love the bluesy vibe on this one and think the female vocals fit perfectly. They have recently signed on with Profound Lore and will have new album out summer of 2012.

It took them a decade to produce their debut and now they're coming out with another one 1 year later?

Worst album of the year: Trivium Ė In Waves
Iím sure itís no surprise to anybody that I dislike Trivium, so one might wonder why I listened to this album. Well, I listened to this album for the same reason I listen to other shit bands or albums such as Design the Skyline, Emmure, etc; for shits and giggles. Sometimes Iíll listen to obviously bad music for laughs. Over the course of the song or album Iíll normally think these three thoughts: Itís funny that people actually like this, itís funny that anybody could be proud of making this, itís funny that this band considers themselves to be a legitimate musical act. But In Waves didnít leave me with thoughts. Instead my thoughts over the course of the album were: Itís sad that people actually like this, itís sad that anybody could be proud of making this, itís sad that this band considers themselves to be a legitimate musical act. In Waves pretty much takes all that is bad about the current metal scene, sans the synths, and wraps it into to gargantuan shit burrito. All the songs are incredibly uninspired and theyíre all just even shittier versions of shitty metalcore songs that weíve already heave 1,000 times before. This album isnít bad, itís flat out pathetic.

I'd say it's one of the worst albums I've ever listened to. But that's just like, my opinion, man.
