More by Breaking Benjamin
Post-grunge, much like hair metal and nu-metal, has had its negative connotations since its inception, but compared to the empty poppiness of Nickelback and Creed or the angst-drenched grunting of Three Days Grace and Seether, Breaking Benjamin had this odd purity to it. In , the band entered a lengthy silence, but with a legal win on his side and the rights to the band in hand, Burnley reformed the band with fresh members and broke back onto the scene. Breaking Benjamin has been no stranger to consistency. In fact, the vocals from Ben do take cues from the better portions of later albums like Phobia and Dear Agony.
Sure, guttural growls appear, but the calmer melodies from Burnley take a majority of the vocals.
This singing style has kept Breaking Benjamin from succumbing to the pitfalls that other bands like Nickelback and Three Days Grace have fallen into, or at the very least, not succumbing to them as much. Expecting anything particularly inventive from Breaking Benjamin is probably harder than expecting it from any other post-grunge band, as their near idolization of tradition has become so much easier to detect over time.
It makes the extremely rare bits of intrigue all the more precious. With such a proud emphasis on radio friendliness, it is admirable for the band to command their music so well, but this obsession with consistency makes their return more disappointing than it should be. For everything the band has been through since , I honestly expected something, anything more than what Dark Before Dawn delivers. Tweet Recent reviews by this author.
