19 years in the business, 13 studio albums under their belt (some bands don´t even manage to make two albums) and still full of pain. On the cover of Absolute Power you see a revolutionary fist raised to the sky but how much revolution is then on the record, really? Not much – it´s just typical American metalcore with admittedly “absolute power” in large amounts (thanks to newcomer Rick Halverson´s pretty neat drum work) and the occasional catchy chorus which make songs like Stand My Ground and Gone Rogue truly radio-compatible but that´s pretty much all about it. Bottom line: Absolute Power is a solid, well-produced, nicely played album – for my taste, however, those are also the reasons why, for the most part, it´s a rather pain-free listening experience.
