The evolution of (hed) P.E. has been tumultuous during this decade, with the sound taking all sorts of turns from one album to the next. Truth Rising continues this trend while simultaneously encapsulating the band’s history. It mashes together the sounds of the band’s past four albums with influences from current, popular metal trends. The result is heavy for most of the album. There are too many disruptive skits and quotes to give the tracks an honest flow, and the style changes between songs only make it harder to enjoy. There are some bright moments, like a guest spot from Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust on “Stand Up”, and the moments of blatant System of a Down emulation, but overall, this album is a tough listen.
