Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

P.O.D. - When Angels & Serpents Dance

None April 17th, 2008



Thank god P.O.D. has a new album, because my Korn records just weren't fueling my angsty aggression anymore.

"When Angels & Serpents Dance" is the latest rap-metal delight from the San Diego rockers. P.O.D., which, for the uninitiated, stands for "Payable on Death," a promise this crappy band has yet to fulfill.

In "Shine with Me," lead singer/talk rapper Sonny Sandoval directs you to shine with him "like the beautiful star you are "¦ ," then he gets frustrated at your lack of shining, sings "la, la, la" and then growls, demanding you "SHINE ON! SHINE ON!"

The title of song three, "Condescending," says more than any review ever could. The proud-of-my-state "Kaliforn-Eye-A" is a horribly awful neighborhood anthem and devotion to keeping "things on the down low "¦ on the streets of San Diego."

The rest of the album falls into the same sad Dr. Seuss cadence: Blaze/days, streets/eat, wife/life, first/worst, line/time. "When Angels & Serpents Dance," we can join them' because the only reason to celebrate would be the demise of this awful act.
