Papa Roach "Kick in the teeth Live"


Papa Roach wage war every time they pick up their instruments.

It's a war for musical integrity. It's a war for their fans. It's a war for rock 'n' roll. The California quartet's latest release, Time for Annihilation…On The Record and On The Road captures that war on stage and in the studio, showcasing nine live renditions of Papa Roach classics and five ...

Product Description

CD Description

In a musical climate dominated by electro and synth, multi-platinum Grammy-nominated Papa Roach return to tear things up, unleashing a new album which conjures a vicious, vibrant intensity that is raw, relevant and ready to rock. The Californian quartet are back with Metamorphosis, featuring the single "Hollywood Whore".

Papa Roach are vocalist Jacoby Shaddix, bassist Tobin Esperance, guitarist Jerry Horton and new member, (ex-Unwritten Law's) drummer Tony Palermo. Since bursting onto the scene in 2000, the band have toured the world and hits including "Forever", "Scars", "Getting Away With Murder" and the smash hit single "Last Resort" which peaked at #4 in the UK charts. Metamorphosis captures Papa Roach's live energy on record. The album engages a full-on rock 'n' roll assault fuelled by the band's punky raw energy, catchy guitar riffs and atmospheric melodies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Memorable Mayhem 25 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
As rock bands go Papa Roach possess a relatively rare quality.
The ability to bring power and melody together in a competent
and convincing way.
'Metamorphosis', their new album, manages to do just this.

Nothing terribly new here, truth-be told but the rickety bridge
between rock and power pop is solidly grounded at both ends
on the fourteen tracks embedded in this project.

The combination of economy of purpose, raw energy and strong
musicianship makes for more than a few memorable moments.
(For heaven's sake it's actually possible to sing along with some of these songs !)

'Lifeline' and 'Had Enough' are two splendid cases in point.
That they exploit just about every known convention taught
at The School of Rock is of no great concern. The formula works.
The cliches are robustly moulded into anthemic structures
with strong melodies and killer choruses.

Mr Shaddix has a good pair of lungs. That they are also able to carry
a tune gives us good reason to be grateful.
(Bring Me The Horizon's young Mr Sykes should listen and learn !)

Misters Horton (guitar), Esperance (bass) and Palermo (Drums)
keep everything firmly on the rails.
Tight, muscular arrangements with a refreshing absence
of unnecessary decoration and posturing. Egos kept well in check.

'March Out Of The Darkness' is another winning example.
The accoustic opening quickly builds into a powerfully satisfying confection.
Their innate understanding of light and shade is more than ably demonstrated here.

'Nights Of Love', a quaintly old-fashioned affair, brought a nostalgic smile to my lips.

A worthy little troupe of minstrels at the top of their game.
A equally fine little album.

You have to feel sorry for Papa Roach; fighting against current trends, and walking a fine line between the sack from the record label or having that hit song ala Nickelback to send them to the top.
Certainly they are unrecognisable from the Rap Metal outfit of the Millenium dawn & the teen angst lyrics that went with it. Now a fully fledged, Rock/Metal outfit that have a sound best described as a modern day, edgy Motley Crue. In all fairness, they fill the criteria that's needed, the songwriting (mainly from the bass player) is strong with good hooks & genuineley decent verses/choruses, the musicianship is strong but not overtly flashy, Shaddix can sing (despite the walking cliche Rock Star look) and the production is excellent - organic & still very modern.
It's not a revelationary album, and certainly not a revolutionary one but in an era of the extremes of Death Metal and the softer rock scenes and pop rubbish, there almost feels like there IS a market for this (would be) Stadium Metal!
AC/DC, Aerosmith, Motley Crue etc - none are getting any younger so why not room for this kind of act?
One thing, I have noticed is a lot more variety in the guitar work now. Ok, there is still the odd Iron Maiden style harmony, but there is progression and more genuine lead breaks. I still reckon perhaps even more lead guitar would be welcome for this style of material. I'm not suggesting the ott histrionics of Dragonforce by any means but perhaps something ala Guns N Roses - especially on the more melodic material?? I'm not convinced the guitarist is really a lead player as such so maybe a second guitarist is an option for the future...
Bass guitar is strong too - kind of locked in hard and holding it all down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Rock! 17 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
I love all of Papa Roach's past albums and in my opinion it is the diversity of their music that makes them so exciting. This album is fantastic. From the moment the first tune kicks in you can feel the metal vibe! I loved the two singles 'Hollywood Whore' and 'Lifeline', they are outstanding tracks and show that this band has real talent. I was pleasantly surprised by the rest of the album. I loved 'The Paramour Sessions' and I was eagerly anticipating this album hoping it would be of the same quality, and it is. For any band to follow a classic like that it's gonna be hard work, but they've pulled it off.
The lyrics on many of the songs show a maturity and reflect the current state of the world around us: 'State of Emergency', 'Lifeline', 'Change or Die'. The song 'Had Enough' sends out a positive message in these unstable times. This is much more of a typical rock album than their other albums. It's great. I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Rock Album of 2009 16 Jan 2010
By Mike W
Format:Audio CD
I've been to see Papa Roach twice in 2009 and they were amazing to say the least!
This album you can sing along to from start to finish, it's hard not! It's also hard to name the best track as there's nothing on here that I would even think about skiping through. I've got all their albums and this is the best by far proving that they are just going from strength to strength. I've also converted some people on the strength of this album alone!

Just buy it and then go see them live next time they come to the UK.

4.0 out of 5 stars if you liked them..this is pretty good 9 April 2009
By S. Mann
Format:Audio CD
I'm an original Papa Roach fan and lets be honest, they weren't the sort to suddenly expand with "new" fans as the albums pile up such as Nickelback or Linkin Park. So in that respect I kinda think alot of Papa for "trying" to maintain their originality..with a few tweaks.
Now I remember when paramour Sessions came out and for me its their best material and it lived in my CD player for months on end.
They've been off the scene for a while and I've managed to grab tickets to one of their UK gigs this month so i'm looking forward to finally seeing them live.
Back to the album and yes its a mixed track by far is Lifeline and then maybe Change or Die.
Give it a try if you're a fan.
