One of this issues I had with Kill The Power was that there were some bad songs on there. This time around there are a few songs that aren’t quite as impactful as others there really are none I would call bad or even out of place. The only downside to this album is that it doesn’t feel as ambitious as Kill The Power or even previous albums. Kill The Power did take some risks and some paid off while others failed, but they were there. They played it safe this time around.
Most bands put out albums once every few years, but we’ve been lucky enough to get back to back Skindred releases. While this may seem like it would result in a lack of quality thankfully it does not with this band. Volume is Skindred pure and simple. It may not try to reach for the stars and stays close to it’s comfort zone but what we get is a solid and above average metalcore album. Skindred thankfully survived the nu-metal era and have come out swinging in the last few years. If you’ve been dismissing them or overlooking them it’s time to take a second look.
