Can't wait for part 2

To consider the amount of touring corey and jim have done with slipknot in the past year, marked by the fact this came off the back of the last stone sour, as well as knotfest and corey's book, it is quite amazing to see where the time came to put so much depth into this album.
The ballads and slow songs are beoming a bit overloy used by this album but you can forgive the band when every other songs is so strong. The album's opening songs set it out to be a repeat of their first self titled album but this changes drastically with the third song ( which in my opinion is one of the weaker tracks ) slowing the mood right down. From there on in its fairly up and down but theres always a consitency to coreys lyrics that means even if you dont like the song, you will listen up to the lyrics.
Seen them 2 years ago when they toured with Avenged and have tickets for London this year with papa roach so i can not wait for that night as well as part 2 to this album.

This may not have enough heavy tunes to impress some,but i'd say what it does have is quailty,loads of it.
Sounding a bit like the likes of METALLICA at times,sometimes even a little SLIPKNOT slips in,not surprising really and no complaints from me.
So what does this offering offer?
GONE SOVEREIGN- a great heavy starter,very STONE SOUR,very impressive.
ABSOLUTE ZERO- this keeps up the pace,great lyrics,great guitar solo.
A RUMOR OF SKIN- more great lyric,something to get some anger out with,love the tune.
THE TRAVELLERS PT 1- softer track for a breather,nicely sung,nice feel.
TIRED- gets a bit heavier again,album remains solid lyrically and musically.
RU486- speed things up,gets heavier,top lyrics,will sound great live with those chants. Really love the feel of this.
MY NAME IS ALLEN- keeps the pace going,love the drums and sinister vocals on this.
TACITURN- soft,slow song. Nice vocals,could be too gentle for some fans,but i like it as it's a nice change in pace.
INFLUENCE OF A DROWSY GOD- starts fairly slow,gets heavier,angrier as it grows.
THE TRAVELLERS PT 2- heavier than part 1,pace keeps changing,but nicely so.
LAST OF THE REAL- solid finisher,heavy,STONE SOUR still have it.
So yeah,i'd say they've done it again,if you don't mind not every song being heavy,you should be impressed by HOUSE OF GOLD AND BONES PT 1,i now look forward to part 2.
