They followed this up with another amazing album, Chamber Music, with this album they had decided to head in a new direction, to escape the label of "Nu-Metal", the second album was full of emotion, shown by the actual singing on the album rather than just shouting.
They followed up two amazing albums with a third, Dark Days is a fantastic album, which goes back to the "spooky core" feel of the first album, but doesn't forget everything they learnt on the second. It has the heavy undertones, but mixes the growls singing, screaming and shouting of Dez's vocals.
This band are really held together by the energetic frontman, but they now seem to have found their own and each others strengths on this album.
They are amazing
Just because the second album wasn't well recieved, and they haven't been around for the last two years, doesn't mean that they should be forgotten, Buy heis Album.
It's certainly effective on menacingly heavy tracks like 'Something Told Me', 'Dark Days' and the relentless 'One Step'. Dez's distinctive vocals and the usual Coal Chamber sound (loud/quiet structure, with plenty of energy in the bass/drums driving the songs along) providing some of the band's better moments. Elsewhere, the softer approach certainly works too; 'Friend?' for example being far more convincing than similar tracks from Chamber Music.
This is certainly a good album, but one can't help feeling it's a slight re-tread of past ground and Coal Chamber should've been much bigger now with all their early promise.
Common advice is when you're in a hole, stop digging. Desperate to win back fans of the self titled debut ( like me!) after there dodgy goth foray, Coal Chamber have dug themselves into a mine that only INNOVATION can help them get out of now. Unfortunately Road Runner doesnt believe in innovation...
