[REVIEW] Stone Sour’s ‘House of Gold & Bones – Part 1’

image

Stone Sour is no longer Corey Taylor’s side project. The Slipknot frontman may be bouncing around between recording studios, but it’s clear he gives his full effort to every album he records.

His dedication is evident on Stone Sour’s latest album – the band recently released the first half of their two-part fourth studio album. House of Gold & Bones – Part 1 delivers 11 original tracks in the band’s trademark alternative style, contrasting Slipknot’s brasher sound.

Track Listing:

  1. “Gone Sovereign”
  2. “Absolute Zero”
  3. “A Rumor of Skin”
  4. “The Travelers, Pt. 1”
  5. “Tired”
  6. “RU486”
  7. “My Name is Allen”
  8. “Taciturn”
  9. “Influence of a Drowsy God”
  10. “The Travelers, Pt. 2”
  11. “Last of the Real”

The lead single, “Gone Sovereign”, makes the album’s first four minutes heavy and ballsy that carries well into the quick-riffing “Absolute Zero”, which features a blistering pre-chorus and a wicked solo.

“A Rumor of Skin” shows off Taylor’s vocal variety, alternating between aggressive screaming and melodic singing. Part one of “The Travelers” tones down the energy being much slower and acoustic, even providing a glimpse of #8’s sensitive side.

“Tired” carries an almost relaxing melody throughout its riffs and hooks, and while “RU486” starts with some sort of 50s documentary intro, it quickly picks up speed and gets heavier with gang-vocal chorus.

If any song is picked to be the next single, it’s “My Name is Allen”. It’s short, punchy and rockin’, with ominous Rob Zombie-like vocals leading up to the chorus. “Taciturn” again provides a lighter contrast with another ballad-like acoustic song that descends into an electric solo and a third chorus that ends with a dialtone.

There’s a strange, synth-like intro to “Influence of a Drowsy God”, but becomes more electric and layered, showing off Stone Sour’s talent as a cohesive group. Part two of “The Travelers” proves to be louder than its predecessor, leading into “Last of the Real”, a track that shows off Taylor’s range as a singer, possibly another radio hit.

While not of the songs are as aggressive as “30/30-150” or as memorable as “Bother” or “Through Glass”, the first half of House of Gold & Bones is a solid start to the two-part release. This will hold Stone Sour fans over for now, but I’m sure they’re hoping for another fast and wicked big hit with Taylor doing what he does best: scream at the top of his lungs.
