My expectations for Skid Row's new EP "United World Rebellion: Chapter Two--Rise of the Damnation Army"(2014) were low. Simply put, I have disliked pretty much everything that the Jersey natives have released since their superb (and underrated) swan-song with singer Sebastian Bach "Subhuman Race" (1995). My main gripes with Skid Row 2.0 aren't all about the absence of Bach. Singer Johny Solinger is a decent, albeit somewhat generic singer. While Bach has certainly been missed, the main problem that I've had with the post-Bach era is that the music simply hasn't been very good. I somewhat liked "Thickskin" (2003) the bands first album with Solinger (although it was far from their best album), but the follow-ups were all very disappointing. "Revolutions per Minute" (2006) was thoroughly mediocre and while "United World Rebellion: Chapter One" was an improvement, it still wasn't great. I bought the new EP expecting another let-down, but I was surprised.

"United World Rebellion: Chapter Two--Rise of the Damnation Army" is the best thing that Skid Row have released since the departure of Bach. The reason that this EP is such an improvement over their last several releases is that the songwriting is just far superior. With the bulk of the Solinger-material, the band sounded tired and the songs sounded rehashed or they sounded like half-baked attempts to sound contemporary; with this new EP the band actually has come up with a collection of good songs. Like the first EP, "United World Rebellion: Chapter Two--Rise of the Damnation Army" sounds like a continuation of where the band left off with the melodic hard-rock of "Slave to the Grind," (1991), it's just that the quality of the material is a lot better.

1) We Are The Damned- Skid Row Nail it with this fiery ode to rebellion. This song chugs along at a lively pace before hitting you with a tasty chorus. They played this song live just a few weeks before releasing this album in Burlngton, VT and it went down a storm.
2) Give It The Gun- An excellent song about throwing caution to the wind and going for the brass ring. Definitely has an old school Judas Priest vibe. J.D. kills it with his vocal delivery. If this song doesn't make you move, nothing will.
3) Catch Your Fall- I think a ballad is an inevitable consequence of a Skid Row release. Luckily, Skid Row put real craft and style to every one of them. To my ears, J.D. is the star here, as Sebastian was on their first three releases. J.D. sounds less the rebel here than an uncomfortable, awkward man making up his mind to stay the course with his love. As with the rest of the songs here, this song positively scortches once it picks up.
4) Damnation Army-This song kicks off with a short bass intro before the guitars storm in to kick your teeth in. This song is catchy as hell, and it continues the theme of rebellion. Thiis is the definitive battle cry that sums up the album perfectly.
5) Zero Day- This one reminds me of Radiation Day by Monster Magnet because of it's name. Zero Day is kind of the oddball on this album, This song lurches along in comparison to the others. Despite the slower pace, this stomp and shuffle is just as much fun as the outright sprint heard on some of the previous songs. Rachel Bolan's bass sounds damn good on this song, too.

The United World Rebellion returns with another set of amazing songs. My personal favorite being Give it the Gun! Johnny knocks it out of the park. Listen to the sample tracks and put this in your work out mix for some great cardio.

Lets face it, Skid Row are a top drawer hard rock band. They have strong well-structured songs, intelligent lyrics courtesy of Rachel Bolan, incendiary guitar playing from Snake and Scotti Hill, and topped off by Johnny Solinger's soaring vocals. This EP has five new tracks, most of them based around the theme of, funnily enough, a united world rebellion, a suitably fist pumping theme of defiance, unity and rebellion, the cornerstones of hard rock/metal music. "Catch Your Fall" slows things down in the power ballad kind of way Skid Row handle better than most, while the other four tracks are testosterone packed bundles of chunky riffs and wailing guitars that make you wish you were 18 again. And as an extra treat, there are two covers included, Queen's "Sheer Heart Attack" and Aerosmith's "Rats in the Cellar", both of which the Skid Row boys rip though with ferocious abandon. Inspiring stuff.
