Post-grunge legends Staind have graced the UK shores yet again for a brief headline tour. They’ve had a busy and nostalgic summer, playing with the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit. Having recently parted ways with their long-term drummer Jon Wysock, they’re still going strong and are promoting their seventh self-titled studio album. Attracting a slightly mature crowd, it will be interesting to see what Staind do to break the mould.

I remember the days when Staind were nothing more than just another sullen faced grunge band, plodding along and not diverting too much from their musical path. However, on their seventh full-length album they appear to have returned to their heavier roots. For many Staind fans this will impress them, and for a lot of neutrals, I think it will too. Vocalist Aaron Lewis is often not given enough credit for his vocal range, whilst he may not be able to hit soaring high notes, his downbeat, sulky voice fills out this album perfectly alongside the big hard hitting riffs, and his impressive roar is the perfect soundtrack to this dark masterpiece.
