Editors’ Notes

Doom and dysfunction follow Theory of a Deadman like dark clouds across the tracks of Scars and Souvenirs. This isn’t news, of course — numerous post-grunge and alt-metal groups have erected entire careers upon angst, but what's a bit different here is leader Tyler Connolly’s growing emotional maturity. Tracks like “So Happy,” “Bad Girlfriend” and “Crutch” find Connolly still raking ex-friends and lovers over the coals until their juices sizzle. “Hate My Life” extends this free-floating anger into a wider commentary upon societal breakdown. On these cuts and others, Connolly’s wounded-beast vocals and lacerating guitar licks tear into his victims with righteous bite. But beyond such bruise-inducing tunes, the band shows an increasing ability to deliver bona fide ballads, some of them actually tinged with hope. The uplifting “Heaven (Little by Little)” especially displays a measure of compassion towards a troubled loved one. Musically TOAD continues to invite comparisons with Nickelback’s heavy-treading sound, but there are signs on Scars and Souvenirs that this band is slowly moving away from the grind and gloom of ‘90s grunge towards a fresher form of catharsis.

Customer Reviews

Great Songs

Great albums, good songs. @Shorty81: This album costs $15 because it is the special edition CD. For some reason, the extra songs aren't displayed here. But there's three other songs, 'Great Pretender', 'Shadow', and 'So Happy Acoustic Ver'. Wikipedia lists these 3 songs as pre-order exclusives, but I think you can still buy them if you do a "Power Search". That's how I bought "Shadow" anyways. It's a pretty good song! @People reading this: Check out the album! It's very good. :]

Vancouver, Canada's Theory of a Deadman became the first act to sign with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger's 604 Records imprint in 2001. Tyler Connolly (vocals/guitar) reportedly slipped a copy of the band's demo to Kroeger at a post-concert party and the two were soon collaborating on songs together. One of these, "Invisible Man," was used as the B-side for 2002's wildly successful Spider-Man theme "Hero" (a Kroeger collaboration with Saliva singer Josey Scott), and anticipated Theory of a Deadman's...
