Back Breaker (Solid State)
by Scott Hefflon
Almost seems like a different band. Temptation Come My Way was “passion rock” with Creedish, manly emoting about overcoming hardship and all that shit. This sucker, true to its name, is back-breaking Pantera, without the killer solos, fills, and ability to write songs you’ll remember when the CD stops spinning. First for Solid State, who’ve found (and sometimes kept) some of the more creative hardcore/metalcore bands around.
