KINLIN/The Last Stand (MVD Audio)
This was one of the groove/happy metal bands that are making the rounds these days and you can also throw a little grunge like Alice in Chains in the mix at times as well. I am not a fan of this at all cause to me this is not metal at all except for the guitar solos which are really good and the singer has a good solid voice as well. The music is just faceless and just stands there like a person on a street corner as you are going by. There is nothing special at all about this and it is pretty much forgettable after you hit the stop button. The singer has a very soulful voice and he sings with passion and soul, but with music like this backing him, this falls short to my ears.
