Sins and Bones is Fozzy in their full metal glory, 10 tracks of the most powerful music North America has to offer, capturing the bands powerhouse fusion of genres power metal roots bleeding with progressive style and a classic feel. Jericho and Ward have combined to sell more than 1.2 million records in their heralded careers, but those numbers are a fraction of the audience Fozzy were introduced to when their front man made the Top 7 as a contestant on season 10 of Dancing with the Stars, one of the biggest television shows in the world. Chris Jericho has conquered prime time now its time for Fozzy to conquer the world of heavy metal.

There is a good amount of variety among the tracks and most of them are a lot longer than your typical metal so even though there are only 10 tracks the album is a good length. The final track is a blistering 10 minutes of power that really shines. Overall, if you enjoy a heavier type of metal, there is a lot to love here.
Fast forward to 2012 and Fozzy is releasing their 5th album, SIN AND BONES. From the start of the album, Jericho, Rich Ward and the rest of the Fozzy gang never let up. You can clearly hear that this album was heavily influenced by Iron Maiden, and that's not a bad thing. This is the best album that the band has put out, hands down. It's 52 minutes of awesome. Jericho might not be the best singer around, but he knows how to work with what he has. His shortcomings as a vocalist are made up by the amazing musical work by Ward, Billy Grey, Paul Dileo and Frank Fontsere. If you're into having a good time with your metal, this is a must buy!
Chasing the Grail, Fozzy's 2010 album, had a few bright spots worth listening to, and showed fans that Fozzy had evolved. Sin and Bones is Fozzy taking that next step, an attempt to gain real mainstream success. It's Fozzy moving away from their cheesy, hair metal roots, towards a more modern sound. This is my review of Sin and Bones:
+Spider In My Mouth: The album's opener begins with haunting background music, and a little girl reciting "itsy bitsy spider..." It's somewhat typical of a heavy metal album - the soft opening to a rousing rocker to kickstart the album. I actually consider Spider in My Mouth to be one of the album's best songs. Jericho's vocals during the chorus sound great, as do the heavy guitar riffs.
+Sandpaper: Sandpaper is likely to be the one song you've heard if you listen to your local rock station. The song features M. Shadows, the lead singer of Avenged Sevenfold, and not shockingly, Sandpaper sounds very much like an Avenged Sevenfold song. A good one. Sandpaper is a nice radio song, and M. Shadows fits right in with Jericho and guitarist Rich Ward.
+Blood Happens: Unlike most Fozzy songs, the lyrics here are actually strong. They aren't deep, but they're enjoyable. When Jericho sings "I'm a street sweeper, Scene stealer, Double-barreled key keeper, Living my life on the fly, I'm a code breaker, Faith shaker, Armor-plated earthquaker, Not gonna stop till I die.Read more ›
