THESE TWO NEW STONE SOUR SONGS ARE NOT THE WORST THING EVER
I guess I woke up on the right side of the bed today, ’cause I just listened to these two new Stone Sour songs, “Gone Sovereign” and “Absolute Zero,” and I did not hate them. Don’t get me wrong, I think they’re totally silly. But I completely understand their appeal. They’re catchy! They’re heavy but not overwhelmingly so! They have fun guitar solos! The vocals don’t sound like they were recorded by a robot! I’ll take this over the new All That Remains song any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
Headbang here, then tell me if I’m crazy or if these songs are actually tolerable (or perhaps even above-tolerable?) in the comments section below. The tunes will appear on Stone Sour’s new album, House of Gold and Bones, which comes out October 23 on Roadrunner.
