This CD mixes both styles in a genre of music that is a dying breed.
This is not a style of music that I enjoy, however I am sure that this band has a younger audience out there.
If you are curious, as far as how the band sounds, check out the video below for the song Suffa.
If you like this song, you may find more to like on Insomnia. The CD does have a couple of solid metal moments. Walk On By will appeal to some metalheads, as will the Buffalo Springfield remake of For What It’s Worth in the song Children.
Atlantis A.D. has a pretty cool guitar riff that I found myself liking somewhat.
If I enjoyed rap metal, I would have probably liked this disc a lot more than the rating below indicates. If you like this style of music, give hed (p.e.) a shot.
