Warrior Soul- Back on the Lash (Cargo Records LW052-2)
Warrior Soul were an amazing band in the 90s and I really love their first 4 records and then it all sort of went strange and Kory’s voice changed quite radically. I guess from a combination of screaming, smoking and drinking and living the rock and roll lifestyle, just a bit too hard. Warrior Soul is still alive and rocking but little of the vibe that made them really special is really left. Kory still writes some pretty political lyrics on a few tracks American Idol and I get Fucked Up but the rest of the tracks are about drinking too much, doing drugs and getting into trouble. Kory lives the life, he is no fake but do people really need another record of the same old stories put to some high energy rock and roll?? This is the first studio album since 2012 under the name Warrior Soul. Kory has been active though, released 4 albums under his own name (2003, 2011, 2014, 2015). Overall, I did not find it that interesting of an album. Crank it up if you just want to rock out with Kory.
