I'm ashamed to say that I have only just discovered this band. I'd heard about them for a while but was only really inspired to check them out when Metal Hammer put Union Black in the top ten albums of 2011. A couple of views on Youtube later and I had bought the album which I have not stopped listening to for almost a month now. This is music that makes you want to bounce of walls and jump around until your legs give out. The mixture of raggamuffin, dusbstep, metal and punk is brilliantly crafted into a coherent and immediately seductive package. All the musicians are top notch, including Benji Webbe's versatile vocals. Having seen a couple of their extraordinary live performances - for which the band is notorious - on the net, I can safely say that Union Black does very well to capture that raw energy. The guitars go from subtle to absolutely roaring in a nano second. The bass and drums go from complex dance grooves to out and out metal percussive destruction. Absolute killer tracks for me are Warning, Cut Dem, Doom Riff, Living a Lie, Death to all Spies and Game Over. Having said that, there really isn't a weak track here. This is why the album is slowly taking away my sanity as I listen to it in an endless loop. Actually, that's not quite acurate. I have broken the cycle by purchasing their previous album Rock Roots Riot. And now that's got under my skin too. So I guess I'm beyond redemption at this stage. This band should be huge. We should help them get there... If ever I catch these guys live, I'm definitely taking an ambulance home.

I discovered Skindred when they were supporting Rob Zombie with Revoker (whose first album Benji Webbe has produced. Can't wait) and think they are one of the most innovative bands of recent times. They take multiple genres and fit them together neatly. Union Black is no exception; in fact, it goes further than previous albums and incorporates dance into the mix.

The album has relevant messages to emote, and lyrically it is brilliant, but let's move past that and focus on the overall sound of each song.

"Union Black" is an electronic subverted British national anthem. A great intro.

As this ends we are thrown into the starkly contrasting atmosphere of "Warning". The opening riff carries so much energy, and Webbe's voice sounds fantastic. The song gives "Nobody" some serious competition. Jacoby Shaddix's input only strengthens the melody. It's also a blast to hear live.

"Cut Dem" - a perfect example of how Skindred incorporate electronic sounds into their music. They have mastered it, and made it work wonderfully. I'm hooked.

"Doom Riff" is the most catchy song I have heard in ages. It's one of the heaviest, but also one of the most melodic. This will be essential on the set list.

"Living A Lie" - This is where it gets interesting. It opens with an electronic sound, and then breaks into raw metal. It even has rap, and it works. The aggression comes across very strongly, and the melody breaks the song up. Fantastic. One of my favorites.

"Guntalk" is pure reggae. Despite the disturbing veracity of the lyrics, it's a relaxing song. I've never heard anything like it. The slow reggae rhythm changes to an upbeat dance rhythm, and you realise what a unique track this is.

"Own You" is the heaviest track on the album.

I saw Skindred live at the Golden Gods and at the time knew nothing at all about them. 25 minutes later, I was a fan. So I picked up Union Black. It's a stonker of an album. In many ways it is odd that Skindred has been embraced by the metal world, as the music is such a hybrid of different ingredients. You can hear ragga, ska, punk and rock in their sound, but it's a far cry from most modern metal. No shredding guitar solos, no screaming vocals - Benji has a superb voice, full of presence and power. Guntalk is a straight up ska track. Doom Riff is a monster. The band know how to write catchy, singalong choruses as well as stomping riffs. It's a terrific album and if you ever get the chance to see Skindred live, seize it!

My love of Skindred comes from seeing them live, Benji Webbe has got to be one of the best front men for any band and absolutely loves being up on stage. And so it's the live performances of songs like Bruises, Trouble and Nobody that made me love the albums... until this one came along.

Easily the most accessible album to the uninitiated (have even caught the missus singing along to it) and, in my opinion, the best album to date!

Album kicks off with a 'remix' of our national anthem followed by the infamous Jacoby Shaddix's cameo in Warning, which just gets more rocking the more I listen to it, and the louder you play it the better it sounds. The dub-step/metal cross over for Cut Dem is brilliantly executed and in general the increased reggae influence on the album is noticeable, especially with Guntalk - a pure reggae track which then slips smoothly into a bit of dance. Bad Man Ah Bad Man is probably my favourite track on the album to generally listen to, although Doom Riff live is just a pleasure. Basically, it's impossible to listen to this album without cranking it up and jumping around the house.

If you love Skindred, then you'll love this. If you don't love Skindred, give this a go and it will change your mind, and if you've never heard any sort of `raggametal' before, then this is the introduction you need.

More than anything else though - GO SEE THEM LIVE!
