Nu metal outfit Ransom of the Man's new album "You'll be Sorry Else" drops today. The much-anticipated follow-up to 2003's "At the Moment in My Trigger-Finger" explores new sonic territory as the band reaches back to its Southern rock influences to mine metal gold.

Frontman D'Ogeron has emerged as a musical force to be reckoned with, fiercely lashing out at the band's Alabama rivals, A Thing of Scorn, in the album's first single "Sick and Faint."

While "Sick and Faint" certainly delivers the goods, the album drops off toward the end, losing itself in the melancholy Korn-like dirge "Rendered Seaworthy." But with songs like "Sick and Faint," "With Parted Lips," and "Desperate Endeavour," Ransom's latest is worth the price of admission, so pick it up - you'll be sorry else.

Thanks, Thomas.

I've always wanted a hobby.

Next on Pitchfork Media:

Pseudonymous reviews Captain Blood's "A Thing of Scorn, an Outcast" and gives it a 3.14159, stating:
The only good song on here is the sardonic melody of "Governor Ofplaced," which mixes the dangerous pop tradition of Madonna with Handel's Messiah for devastating results.

You're welcome. Take a bow.
