Overview

WWE Wrestling megastar Chris Jericho, Stuck Mojo guitarist Rich "The Duke" Ward, bassist Sean Delson, and drummer Frank Fontsere's fourth outing under the Fozzy moniker continues to out the one-time cover band as a legitimate player in the unpredictable world of 21st century metal. What started out as a hobby/promotional vehicle for its formidable frontman has manifested itself into a streamlined juggernaut of chunky, unpretentious, old-school metal that measures melody and brutality with equal amounts of affection. Between Ward's tasteful, bottom-heavy riffing and Jericho's truly impressive pipes, Fozzy have crafted another solid collection that successfully bridges the gaps between Godsmack, the Scorpions, and Black Sabbath. Sure, there are missteps (paint-by-numbers ballad "Broken Soul" and nu-metal throwback "New Days Dream" belong in a mid-'80s Jerry Bruckheimer production), but songs like "Under Blackened Skies," "Paraskavedekatriaphobia (Friday the 13)," and "Revival" serve as crushing reminders that heavy metal should conjure up images of the very element for which it's named.
