Since the 2002 death of original lead singer Dave Williams, this Texan quartet has endured a revolving door of singers and yet managed to produce consistently killer albums with an unmistakable sound. This continues with album No. 5, featuring vocalist No. 4 in new guy Jasen Moreno. His bark ….
For a band that’s been beholden to a rotating cast of lead singers since the death of their original frontman Dave Williams in 2002, Drowning Pool has remained remarkably consistent, churning out multiple slabs of slick and sordid, unapologetically shopworn hard rock that manages to retain the group's sonic fingerprints, despite all of the aberrations. 2013's Resilience finds the hard-hitting Texans parting ways with Ryan McCombs, the only singer to ever record more than one album with the group, and welcoming fellow Lone Star State denizen Jasen Moreno into the fold. Like McCombs, Jason Jones, and even the aforementioned Williams, Moreno's vocal style utilizes the cool swagger of Layne Staley as its foundation, though he takes on the role with a bit more gusto than the previous players.
