Editorial Reviews

SOiL's sixth studio album "WHOLE" will be released
on August 20, 2013 via Pavement Entertainment in
North America. This will mark the first album with
original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004's
"re.de.fine". The new album sees SOiL returning to
its classic sound that both fans and critics alike have
come to admire.

Critics have hailed the new album as "An album that
could have come directly after the "Scars" album".
Some featured songs from "WHOLE" include "The
Hate Song", "Loaded Gun", "Way Gone", and "Shine
On". Another track titled "Amalgamation" sees Ryan
taking song titles from both the SOiL and Drowning
Pool catalog and weaving them into verses of the song.
A definite must listen for any fan of Ryan's previous
tenure with both bands.

Ryan McComb's reluctant return to his musical roots prove to be a good step in his career. I loved old soil, and honestly really liked AJ Cavalier when he took over as frontman for SOiL. I however was ecstatic to hear when Ryan became the singer for Drowning Pool. I loved the 2 albums that got cut when he fronted them. Now that he's back with SOiL, I Think i like him even more.
This album sounds like Old SOiL, mixed with his Drowning pool days. Heavy, melodic and overall and Great Album.

In the August of 2013, the American Hard Rock/Metal band Soil released their sixth full-length studio album, which is entitled Whole. The album sees the return of original singer Ryan McCombs after his six year stint as the singer of Drowning Pool and follows up the band’s recent live reunion album Re-Live-ing The Scars.

It isn’t a complete reunion of the early line-up as guitarist Shaun Glass is missing and drummer Tom Schofield’s place is taken up by the capable drummer Will Hunt (although he is not the band’s new drummer and for live shows Soil will be playing with Mitch Gabel). Despite this change, the band are fairly able to recreate the sound that made them famous.

At first I was skeptical that the album could be good, so long after the scene from which the band came from had died, and after line-up changes and reports of a tinny production job, but I was actually fairly impressed on my first listen and have grown to really appreciate the record over time since then. It’s a very good record for this type of music, and if you can overlook your distrust or cynicism you may be very pleasantly surprised.

The album lasts about 37 minutes, the songs are all brief, succinct and don’t overstay their welcome. There is nothing progressive or virtuosic on display and it isn’t dense, challenging or punishingly heavy. For certain more dedicated fans of the genre this may make the album sound boring, but it should increase its appeal to a wider audience.

All of the material is easily-digestible Hard Rock with a Metal flavour and for the most part sounds like material from the band’s previous efforts Scars and Redefine (particularly ‘Amalgamation’).

Ryan McCombs first effort in band after escaping the sinking ship that is drowning pool and soil getting rid of ryan's woeful replacement for one album, back to sounding like they did years before, this is a great return to form, powerful vocals from McCombs and backed up by great guitar riffs and thumping drums, a must for soil and hard rock fans.

Finally!!! The original voice of Soil returns. Don't get me wrong, Picture perfect and True self were ok.....but not the Soil I remember listening to. Scars and Redefine are the TRUE SOIL!! Songs like Halo and Suffering, Something Real, Breaking me down. This album bring you back to the roots of those albums sounds. Good to have the sound of the band back!!

I have been a Soil fan for a very long time. I am so excited about the return of Ryan McCombs (right up there with Layne Staley for me). He has an amazingly beautiful voice that clearly rocks!! I had very high expectations of "Whole" and I was not let down. This cd is so great from start to finish although my personal favorite song is "One Love". I cannot get enough of this CD and hearing Ryan McCombs. Very happy Ryan, Tim King, and Adam Zadel have all reunited!!

I loved Soil's first two albums. Like most fans, I was less than satisfied with the new singer and the albums that followed, so I was super stoked for this new one and Ryan's return. It's fine. It's heavy rock/metal. It's not generic simply because of the vocals, but you won't finish a playthrough with a hook stuck in your head. You could certainly do worse, especially with the lack of good rock and metal these days.

This is the first album since Ryan McCombs hiatus as lead singer with Drowning Pool.
It definitely sounds like the SOiL of a decade ago.
Fans of Soil will not be disappointed with this album at all.
Stand out songs are Shine On, Way Gone, Amalgamation, Loaded Gun, Ugly, The Hate Song and One Love.
Good to have you back Ryan and welcome back Soil.

After following Soil throughout the career, as well as following Ryans work with Drowning Pool, this definately felt very good. Will Hunt and Mitch Gable kept the drumming tight on the album, Tim King holds down the bass thunder, and Adam Zadel shows his chops with more finesse than we have come to expect with the genre, include some true shred. Ryan gives us more of what we have come to love with the bitter "angry hobbit" introspection that we can all relate to. I've enjoyed everything these guys have done, but this definately give us back that old feel. The growl is there, the music is slamming. High spots (in my opinion) are the single "Shine On", even if the riff feels a lot like ReDefine, Wake Up, The Hate Song, and for those of us who have followed all of the above, Amalgamantion is sure to bring a grin. Production wise, this album will stand up to anything on your chosen method of delivery, and seeing the band live as well doesn't disappoint in the least, plus there are no "rock star attitudes" going on, all very approachable and genuine good guys. Simply put, if you want an unpretentious slab of heavy metal that dumps adrenaline into your bloodstream and makes you remember what throwing the horns is all about, you NEED this album. Don't think, just do it. It simply feels right.
