Editors’ Notes

When grunge breeds with mainstream hard rock, the offspring looks something like Theory of a Deadman. On Gasoline, the band’s initial connection with Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger is downplayed as the Canadian combo further defines its own identity. Singer/guitarist Tyler Connolly’s angst-ridden snarl achieves nuance, particularly on country-tinged numbers like “In the Middle” and “Hello Lonely (Walk Away From This).” Other tracks, like “Hating Hollywood” and “Say Goodbye,” allow him to vent his bottomless spleen with less subtlety and more primal rage. The band’s aggression is channeled into some appealing outlets, including bouncy-yet-crunchy pop (“No Surprise”) and ragged balladry (“Santa Monica”). But for all their market-friendliness, the album’s songs are almost unremittingly bitter towards the opposite sex — from the scarred survival anthem “Quiver” to the short, nasty and funny “Hell Just Ain’t the Same,” the band doesn’t display much faith in love. The music’s sting is intensified by TOAD’s improved musicianship, with Connolly and co-guitarist Dave Brenner leavening their pummeling electric riffs with acoustic interludes.

Customer Reviews

Deadman is back and better than ever...

This album is one of my favorite of all time! If you like Nickelback or anything similar, you will love Theory of a Deadman. This album is just amazing! Some of my favorite songs are from this album. You have "No Suprise," a song showcasing the harsh break up between ex-lovers, which captures the mood perfectly, then you have "Santa Monica," another amazing track. My favorite sosngs from the album would have to be"Hello Lonely," "Since You've Been Gone," and "In The Middle." Other songs of note are "Better Off," "Say Goodbye," and "Save the Best for Last."

amazing

One of the best rock bands ever put together, next to Nickelback and similar to Hinder. Not many people know about Theory of a Deadman but if people heard the music i guarentee they'd be just as popular as Nickelback.

One Word....

AWESOME.... i like the new drummer because the other one quit (no one knows why), um anyway great band... sound a lot like Nickelback, and if you like this album i strongly recommend their first one its just as 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.

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...
