Verdict: 5

POD has always been a somewhat strange band. they blend styles like no one else. The album 'Satellite' was, and is a great album with immensely strong melodies straight through. At that time they tied in with a band named Linkin Park under the frenzy of NuMetal. Since then Linkin Park has evolved into something more mainstream and accessible while POD has released a number of outright poor albums.

So is 'When serpents and angels' any different? It certainly has the potential since the original guitar shredder, Marcus Curiel is back. You will find touches of Janes Addiction and early Smashing Pumpkins there, some blends from Rage against the machine as well, but ...Parts of this album could be mistaken for a Santana album...

Well it's a good album alright, I like it a lot, but I doubt many will agree with me. It's a stripped down album with a lot of Latin influences and very little to chew for the Metalhead.
