The best part about Slipknot taking another hiatus is that we can finally expect a new Stone Sour album. Stone Sour, a side project of `Knot singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root, made a great debut in 2002, but the band was put on hold due to the success of Slipknot's 2004 album, "Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses)." Now they've returned, four years later, with their long awaited, much anticipated sophomore effort, "Come What(ever) May." They have a lot to prove with this album, since many thought their first disc was a one-trick pony which mooched off of Slipknot's success.

This disc has many aggressive, heavy parts, but they're blended with the same ingredient that made the debut a success: good vocals. On every one of these songs, Corey actually sings cleanly, and he delivers a truly heartfelt--at times amazing (see "Through Glass")--vocal performance.

Overall, however, this album is not a very big step forward. The musicianship is improved because the guitarists (Josh Rand and the aforementioned Jim Root) adopt a few solos (i.e. "Your God" has a cool, melodic solo). But the songwriting is largely the same, and one or two of these songs will even make you think it's a leftover from the 2002 recording sessions. That's OK, though, because Stone Sour didn't really have much room to improve, anyways. And don't be mistaken--"Come What(ever) May" is almost every bit as good as the debut, and it even eclipses that album in a couple of places, so it's not a misstep or a sophomore slump by any means.

Songs like "30/30-150" and "Reborn" are very fast, heavy, and catchy with churning, almost thrashy riffs and infectious, melodic choruses. "Hell & Consequences" and "1st Person" are also among the record's heaviest songs.

Originally released last August, Corey Taylor (Slipknot) leads Stone Sour with the best Hard Rock release of 2006 called Come What(ever) May. In June 2007 they re-release the disk with 6 bonus tracks and a DVD. So let's break it down by original disk, bonus tracks and DVD....

The Original Disk From 2006:

There's no mistaking Corey Taylor's signature Slipknot screaming on Track 6 (Reborn), but Stone Sour mostly moves far away from Slipknot's complicated, chaotic arrangements to a more clearly sung, melodic rock sound. Make no mistake...Come What(ever) May is full of pounding Heavy Metal arrangements, but the vocals never stray into the hardcore Lamb of God I'm-the-Devil-and-I'm-pissed department. Instead you get driving music with quality singing.

And don't expect Nu Metal with Stone Sour...expect Hard Rock...period. I wouldn't classify Stone Sour as "old school" Metal either (you know, like Judas Priest or Iron Maiden). I would call these guys Modern Metal. Unlike the infestation of Nu Metal bands today, the guitars are set free in Stone Sour. James Root (also from Slipknot) and Josh Rand share the 6-string duties and blister their way through the disk. Ex-Soulfly drummer Ray Mayorga impresses on the skins (Godsmack's Shannon Larkin takes the sticks for Track 1). And Slipknot's stage manager Shawn Economaki rocks the bass.

There are standout tracks aplenty. Made of Scars (Track 5) is one of the best Hard Rock songs that I've heard in years. Track 3 (Hell & Consequences) is a close runner up. Track 9 (Socio) continues the melodic rock pattern, and Track 7 (Your God) had me singing along with its memorable "what am I supposed to do now" chorus after the first listen.

This cd took me by surprise but it has grown on me. Stone Sour has been very unique since day one, so I didn't know what to expect with this cd. It is not as heavy as their original debut. There are no songs that match the intensity of the songs "Get Inside" or "Choose" from their self-titled release. But this is not a bad thing...only for people who were looking for it.

"Through Glass" is obviously the song that will attract the most listeners, so if this is the case there may be a great deal of new listeners expecting to hear a cd full of softer acoustic sounding songs. Wrong. It is difficult to put a label on what exact genre this is, but none of the songs sound like "Through Glass", for sure. Based on the songs "30/30-150", "Hell and Consequences", "Reborn" and "1st person", one would call this metal. "Come what(ever) may" and "Made of Scars" have a bit of an edge, but would probably be considered alternative rock songs. "Your God","Socio", and "Cardiff" all sound like mainstream rock songs. "Zzyzx Road" and "Sillyworld" are both more mellowed out slow songs. I am not going to get too far into the meanings of these songs, but I just want to make the point that this cd is all over the place with its music. If you are looking for a cd that only focuses on one genre, you will not find it.

It is also hard to hear much of a slipknot influence in the music( although some of the riffs sound like those of vol 3:subliminal verses). Something that really changed in Stone Sour is Corey's screaming. If and when he does, it is high pitched and much different sounding than those on the self titled album. One song where it is very apparent is during the chorus of Reborn.
