Biography

The band Fozzy has really always been about one thing: having fun. What started out for guitarist Rich Ward as a weekend cover band soon became an internationally signed act with the biggest star in professional wrestling, Chris Jericho, as its lead singer. Their first few releases still had Fozzy playing covers but with adopted stage names and a backstory written for the movies. When you have ... Read more in Amazon's Fozzy Store

Review

Fozzy's first serious album All That Remains is eventually going to be recognized as one of the metal masterpieces of the '00s. What utilitarian musical genius Rich Ward and killer vocalist Chris Jericho (in bands since 13; wrestling came later) hath wrought on that thing... well, having them back is cloud-busting. And what have we here? Fozzy have bravely moved forward, or laterally as it were, Chasing The Grail tossing like Chinese darts both positives and negatives o'er the 11/10 last, but intrigue, mainly. So yeah, Chasing The Grail is interestingly more melodic, and there's even a ballad or two, one of them, gorgeously southerny, the other creepy Depeche. It's also weirdly synthetic, in terms of studio trickery, which seems to be something applied to both vocals and the tornado percussive flood of hits to the body. But the beauty of this hugely crafted metal spread is the gaping maw of dynamics, which gives it a relentless epic-ness. Forget that there's an actual 13 minute epic on it, hell, much of it's a proggy blast at the face, from 'Under Blackened Skies' to 'Pray For Blood' and back again. And let's ponder that all of this actually doesn't add up to ballerina power metal. No, bloody Rich is to classic and doomy and rhythmic and all sorts of things (political, iron-pumping) that add to his raging musical genius. Chris nails it as well, when he says that this is a form of pounding metal with melodic vocals. And come to think of it, his love of Helloween, then - really, then - Priest or Maiden, man, it's massaged in like a fine stain on teak. Frankly, my first few spins of this accentuated the above negatives, but after a few headphone-immersed revisitations, there are some bold, mature, 'I Am, I'm Me' qualities to this album that are missing from the (well, I still think it's somehow heavier) All That Remains. So man, gotta go, but Fozzy should be... what? In this day and age, how big can you be? They should be in packages with Testament and Machine Head, basically, because of the high intellectual execution and taste and lyrics and vocals and the whole package of inspired metal-making all over this thing, melody bravely infused, critics of that be damned. --Martin Popoff - BW&BK

Format: Audio CD
The ONLY reason I gave this album a shot was because of leading man Chris Jericho. I'm no longer a wrestling fan, but I used to love the faux-sport in the late 90's, and Jericho was a favorite. I continued to enjoy his presence on VH1, and being a metal fan, decided to give Chasing the Grail a listen. I have to admit, I had low expectations, and I'm happy to say that I was wrong.

Going in, I thought Chasing the Grail would be a throwback to 80s hair metal. For the most part, it isn't. Rather, the album combines a wealth of Metal genres. There's some hair metal in there, some thrash, some nu-metal, but mostly heavy metal. Each song, save Broken Soul, features a heavy, chugging riff that wants to bash your face in. This, along with Chris Jericho's solid vocals combine for a solid effort. It's good stuff.

The album begins with the smoldering Under Black Skies. The song is a perfect opening for the album, and leads nicely into Martyr No More, the album's first single. Martyr No More showcases Fozzy's ability to finely craft a chest-beating accessible metal anthem.

The next song, Grail, is my personal favorite. The song is way more intelligently structured than I could've expected, and it features some of the best vocals on the album. This is a mature metal song that deserves the same respect from fans as other highly regarded bands. Unfortunately, Grail leads right into maybe the most immature songs on the album - Broken Soul.

Broken Soul plays out a lot like an 80s era ballad. It's soft, relies way too much on simple guitar work, and features cheesy lyrics/vocals.

It was long time since I had bought an album of any kind, but my dedication to Chris Jericho and Fozzy compelled me to snag this album up. Before listening to the album I look through the pamphlet with the band's logo. I was expecting the usual lyrics and photos, but there was a pleasant surprise from Chris and the boys. There was commentary on each song, brutally honest commentary, by Rich Ward and Chris Jericho. It gave me a little insight into each song and made me appreciate each one a little more. It showed me that Fozzy wasn't wasting the last few years doing nothing. They want the best out of themselves and that's what this album is representing. This album is amazing. It has addictive choruses and riffs that punch you right in the face. Does it flounder a little? Not really. This album is really a piece of work that deserves your attention. Each track on this album is easy to get into. I feel I got my moneys worth. If you are thinking about buying this album then buy it. You won't be disappointed.

Listen if you have been following Fozzy at all you knew to expect a great CD going into this one. I think I am most impressed BTW these guys keep improving. This band one ups themselves every time they put out an album. From Rich 'The Duke' Ward's solo effort 'My Kung Fu Is Good' to his Sick Speed/CaFu endeavors. ( Don't know what I mean write to Rich and get those demos pronto junior) to the solo cover efforts by Jericho himself on WWE Originals, Spin The Bottle a tribute to Kiss, Hellbent Forever A Judas Priest tribute, to Number from the Beast a Tribute to Iron Maiden to Chris's latest song With Liberty N Justice 'Best Time You Never Had' they kick it up to 11. I have seen these guys live once before and they put on a hell of a show. Check them out and don't be afraid to Stand Up and Shout.

I have been a fan of Fozzy since their inception. Like most, I was drawn to the band due to their front man, Mr. Chris Jericho. Since then, I can say 100% I am a fan of Fozzy because they are a truly talented band. Their latest release "Chasing The Grail" shows a continuing maturity in their writing, performing, and overall existence as a band. Without further ado, my track by track review of "Chasing The Grail."

1. Under Blackened Skies - At first listen, I was a little unsure about this song. Although impressed with the heavy guitar riffs, solo, and drum playing, I wasn't too crazy about how the vocal arraignment meshed with the song as a whole. However, the more I listened, the more I liked. Very heavy, and a solid way to begin an album! 5/5

2. Martyr No More - The first single off the album. A very well put together song, one that you can tell is ready for radio play. Save some semi-cliche lyrics; the delivery is perfect and the guitar work here is amazing! Again pretty heavy, solid stuff! 4.5/5

3. Grail - Again I wasn't 100% sold on this song. However again with a few more listens I was hooked. In many ways in could be viewed as a sort of inspirational song. I truly love the guitar work on this song and how it meshes so well into the hook. The vocal performance is delivered well. My only complaint is that it would seem they were looking for words to merely rhyme, sometimes with no reason. 4/5

4. Broken Soul - My one complaint with this song is the transition into it from the previous track. Somehow in the beginning it just seems out of place. Once you get past tat however, it is a very solid tune. The very first ballad to make a Fozzy album as well. Pretty deep if you think about it! 4.5/5
