Biography

At this point, absolutely nothing can stop Drowning Pool. The platinum-selling Texas quartet continues to roll forward fearlessly on their fifth full-length album and third for Eleven Seven Music. Their patent arena-ready, fist-pumping hard rock remains intact even as they welcome new singer Jasen Moreno into the fold. Make no mistake about it. This is Drowning Pool at their most focused, ...

Product Description

Amazon.com

Intense, dynamic, and full of seething rage, Drowning Pool's powerful debut finds ardent (and sometimes screaming) vocalist Dave Williams mining topics ranging from religion ("Sinner") to relationships ("Reminded") to fine effect, creating a nu-metal opus that's rock-solid from start to finish. "Bodies" boasts an irresistible, insinuating growling chorus ("Let the bodies hit the floor"), with the tune's melodic, suspenseful verses providing the perfect buildup for the cathartic chorus. Williams's impressive whisper-to-a-scream delivery in "Tear Away" and the unbridled energy of "Told You So" are also striking. The Texas quartet's post rap-rock heaviness is aggro yet melodic, not to mention believable, credible, and intelligent. Their smart lyrics, chunky rhythms, and punchy production (by Jay Baumgardner of Papa Roach fame) make this music for the Ozzfest generation. --Katherine Turman

Customer Reviews

I recommend it to anyone that's into hard rock/metal.
Jason
If you liked the way these guys sounded at the Ozzfest, just keep that CD and be happy with it because it won't be better on their album.
Alan Brown
Those songs actually have some good melody and chorus'.

This Texas quartet's decision to make a nu-metal album which was less nu-metal than regular heavy metal was a wise one. "Sinner" not only went platinum, but it appealed to fans outside of the nu-metal genre. Drowning Pool don't bother with the trendy hip-hop vocals; this is a band which rocks in old-school fashion, with heavy, gut-punching riffs. "Sinner" is also different from other nu-metal records, because frontman Dave Williams not only writes somewhat intelligent and introspective lyrics, but his vocal styles are also quite good; he sings, growls, howls and bellows equally as well.

"Bodies" is Drowning Pool's most famous song, so it's obviously a stand out track, here. The verses are melodic, and they lead in, nicely, to the chorus, which is very cathartic. This song's chorus ("Let the bodies hit the floor!") is one of the most irresistably catchy chrouses I've heard, and this song is one of the best mosh-pit anthems I have ever heard. Elsewhere, "Tear Away" is a memorable, sing-along song about self-absorption, the title track has another chunky main riff and a very catchy chorus, "Reminded" has a good vocal hook alongside more mosh-worthy riffs and a huge chorus, "Pity" has choppy, surging, almost skipping riffs, "Mute" ties together good, melodic singing with wah-wah guitars, and "Sermon" is a heavy yet depressing tune about spiritual emptiness and needing God ("Where was God when I needed a friend?").

This album is full irresistible hooks, energy, intensity, excitement, and power. It is essential listening for all mosh-metal fans, rage rock fans, and nu-metal fans. And "Sinner" is heavy enough to make you a Drowning Pool fan even if you don't like nu-metal. Do yourself a favor: buy this album, and honor Dave's passing by playing it loud!

The first time I ever heard of Drowning Pool was during a WWF live event in 2004 when their song 'Bodies' headlined a LIVE wrestling event. I found the song to be catchy and a cleverly designed song. So I went ahead earlier this year and purchased the entire album 'Sinner' from Amazon.com. After listening to this delightful album a number of times it is time for me to share my feelings on this nu-metal band.

Firstly the artwork is pretty interesting and different. The girl looks alittle like Amy Lee of Evanescence at first. The scope of the album pretty much matches the artcover, the mood of this album ranges from discussing religion in earnest in the first song 'Sinner' to relationships in 'All Over Me' and 'Reminded'. The better songs of this album are 'Bodies', 'Mute' and 'Follow'. 'Bodies' quickly became a moshpit favourite in concerts and dancefloors and 'Follow' became a BBQ song to be played with a loop with friends.

Drowning Pool is a band with promise. The band had a death in the lead singer after this album so this album pretty much is the original sound of Drowning Pool. The later albums have a new sound and atmosphere. (See my Desensitized review). I like this Drowning Pool sound best.

Fans of Staind, Linkin Park, Godsmack and Dishwalla will like the offerings of this album. Check it out, you will be surprised to find you like the songs and the sound of Drowning Pool's debut album.

If you are on Amazon purchasing music, you're likely a casual consumer like myself looking for a new sound. I heard the song "Bodies" on my local rock radio station, liked it, and found that this entire Sinner CD holds up to the energy of that song. It's Solid.
I have no idea why the other reviewer hopped on Amazon to write his intense 'music review' (i'm being kind). Ignore his/her pedantic bullsh... and enjoy this CD. :)

I love Drowning Pool. Even if I am a metalhead(Kataklysm, Nile, In Flames, Dark Throne, Dimmu Borgir etc) I still love this band. The leader singer just...to put it bland...rocks! His voice never gets annoying like a few bands(Otep, Limp Bizkit, Audioslave) Great CD. Now here's the track by track.

1. Sinner - 5/5 - Used to be my favorite. Lost interest but still deserves a 5/5 because the song is so beautifully played.

2. Bodies - 3/5 - Overrated too much. The chorus gets on my nerves horribly but I'll listen to it every once and a while

3. Tearing Away - 5/5 - Awesome song. That guitar sounds pretty clean and nice. You gotta download this if you don't have the CD

4. All Over Me - 4/5 - Great track but the chorus lyrics are stupid.

5. Reminded - 4/5 - Pretty good song. Love that intro.

6. Pity - 5/5 - Awesome song. I like the "served on a plate...for all of you to eat" Second best song on this CD

7. Mute - 2/5 - Meh...snore. Not worth downloading if you must download the cd.

8. I Am - 1/5 - Horrible. Bad. The musicianship is good but the singing is gross. It's like the lyrics faded out.

9. Follow 10/5 - This is why this Cd gets 5 stars. Because of this song. This song is just...F#$%%ING GREAT! You MUST have this!

10. Told You So - 5/5 - Love the intro. Good song, telling everyone to shut up.

11. Sermon - 4/5 - Sounds to me like a religious song in the beginning. I don't believe in a god(no I'm not a satanist, I'm an evolutionist) and well that's what ruins it. Other then that it's pretty good.

One thing about this CD is how the lyrics get worse over time. Start at Sinner then skip to I Am and Follow. Then go back to Sinner. See the difference? Yeah that pissed me off.
