iTunes 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.

GREAT ALBUM

More great songs on this album than the others!! CHECK THEM OUT...!!!!!!

GO THEORY!

Theory of a Deadman is my favorite band to date. People say that they sound A LOT like Nickelback. That may be true but I highly disagree. They sound like Nickelback because Nickelback helped them with this CD. This is my favorite Thoery CD and I LOVE IT! I was pretty excited when it came out. GREAT CD GUYS! Good job Theory!

Great Special Edition

My friend turned me on to these guys, and this is the first album of their that I bought, and it's GREAT!!! Love the two bonus tracks, plus the three acoustic remakes. But, why is the acoustic version of So Happy censored out, even though it's labeled "explicit"?? Oh, well, the original version isn't, so I'm happy.

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...
