      An unremarkable but enjoyable groove metal album

      Released in 2004, ''New Found Power' is the only full length put out before US Groove metal band Damageplan managed to put out before ex Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell was shot to death onstage by a deranged fan the same year.

      The album also has ex-Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul on percussion duties, and unsuprisingly the album is full of fat, chuggy grooves and melodic solos with a strong Pantera feel to them, though these are mixed in with stoner rock/metal riffs in the vein of the likes of Monster Magnet, Orange Goblin and Down. Likewise, Patrick Lachman's vocals swing from clean singing complete with bombastic choruses to gruff screams almost identical to those of Pantera's Phil Anselmo, though they also recall the rhytmical, monotone barks of Messuggah's vocalist on occasion.

      The songs on New Found Power are generally pretty derivative groove metal and also have a habit of straying into rather dubious, downtuned nu-metal territory on occasion, but the band somehow manage to get away with this, with the wealth of immensely enjoyable deep-fried southern riffs making up for the lack of depth or originality on offer. Whilst perhaps not the swansong Dimebag deserved, New Found Power remains an enjoyable and lighthearted slab of southern drinking metal all the same.

      Vocal duties are undertaken by ex-Halford guitarist Pat Latchman, and bass is played by Bob Zilla. This is the first and only release from the band prior to the death of Dimebag Darrel on december the 8th 2004

      The track listing is as follows.

      1. Wake Up
      2. Breathing New Life
      3. New Found Power
      4. Pride
      5. Fuck You
      6. Reborn
      7. Explode
      8. Save Me
      9. Cold Blooded
      10. Crawl
      11. Blink Of An Eye
      12. Blunt Force Trauma
      13. Moment Of Truth
      14. Soul Bleed


      For Pantera fans looking for more of the same, this is not what you are going to get.

      If you're looking for Dime and Vinnie taking a new approach to metal, making more use of samplers and digital sounds, then you're more on track.

      This album features guest vocals from Corey Taylor, and guitar work from Zakk Wylde, there is a whole lot of talent on this CD that isn't to be passed up.

      The tracks range from Thrash, to mellow ballads, all and right through to intense blast beats. This is a band that shows variety, and skill.


      Although not featuring as many blistering solos as the Abbot's previous work, this is still a very good album focused on different things.


      Not to be missed.
