CD Review: Pop Evil Goes Dark With "Onyx"

Hard rockers Pop Evil return with their fourth studio album entitled "Onyx." The album will be released on May 14 through eOne Music and follows up the band's break-through album, 2011's "War of Angels." The album's first single, "Trenches" has recently cracked the Top Ten Active Rock chart and the band will be hitting the main stage at this year's "Rock On The Range" festival next weekend.

The new album starts off with the aggressive, hard rock attack of "Goodbye My Friend" as the band is firing on all cylinders. The crunch of guitars and the scream out loud lyrics of "Deal With The Devil" shows a sense of renewal as the band look to conquer the rock charts. The album's lead single, "Trenches" has a great up-tempo, arena shaking sound with a stomping beat and "Nu-Metal" vocals. They pull back the reigns for "Torn to Pieces," before pushing the petal to the metal on "Sick Sense" and "Behind Closed Doors." They have another mainstream hard rock hit with "Fly Away" before closing the album with the dark, heavy attack of "Flawed."
 
Pop Evil have a busy summer with shows lasting until August, including a stop in Connecticut at the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den on June 1. For a complete list of tour dates and for more information on the new album, "Onyx," please visit popevil.com.
