All of a sudden Statement is back with a new record. They still play that old school sounding metal but now have a new vocalist, Tim. The music is still good, no decay from their earlier work. Even a bit more smoothly executed, it’s the best side of the record. The vocals sound deep and heavy and it takes a while to get used to them. The rhythm of the music and the vocals do not always fall together perfectly and that could be better. But they were recorded apart from each other in two different studio’s.
It would not be a hardline record if the message was less important than the music. So their message is still uncompromisingly and more confrontational than ever. They command the listener or buyer of the record to decide if they are with them or against them.
