Title - 'Circles'
Artist - P.O.D.

For those not in the know, Payable on Death (abbreviated P.O.D.) is a Christian nu metal band formed in 1992 and based in San Diego, California.

The band's line-up consists of vocalist Sonny Sandoval, drummer and rhythm guitarist Wuv Bernardo, lead guitarist Marcos Curiel, and bassist Traa Daniels.

They have sold over 12 million records worldwide and over the course of their career, the band has received three Grammy Award nominations, contributed to numerous motion picture soundtracks and toured internationally.

With their third studio album, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown, they achieved their initial mainstream success; the album was certified platinum by the RIAA in 2000.

Their following studio album, Satellite, continued the band's success with the singles, "Alive" and "Youth of the Nation", pushing it to go triple platinum.

Now the San Diego rock legends return with their latest album Circles on November 16th, 2018 via Mascot Records.

1. 'Rockin' With The Best'
2. 'Always Southern California'
3. 'Circles'
4. 'Panic Attack'
5. 'On The Radio'
6. 'Fly Away'
7. 'Listening For The Silence'
8. 'Dreaming'
9. 'Domino'
10. 'Soundboy Killa'
11. 'Home'

Circles sees P.O.D. expanding the horizons of their creative process with the help and new perspective on songwriting by masterful production duo HEAVY (Jason Bell and Jordan Miller).

Indeed, the amalgamation of rock, reggae, punk, metal and hip-hop influences is sure to peak the interest of those who have been waiting since their last album, The Awakening (2015) to hear new music from them.

In truth, the album is all you ever wanted and so much now due to the involvement of HEAVY. Opening track 'Rockin' With The Best' is classic P.O.D. at their loud, raucous, rappin' finest. The title track 'Circles' is a low brow effort that addresses trying to get out of an unhealthy cycle in which someone feels stuck, which sums up most all of us of a certain age.

Another stand out here is the Celtic-Sugar Ray-esque melodies found within 'Fly Away' with another one being one of my personal favorites, 'Dreaming.' A lyrical envision of us mortal souls, trapped (one way or another) and seeking out a brighter future; even if the present day is tough, is yet another public announcement that rings true for all.

Add to that the thunderous 'Listening For The Silence' and the glorious album closer 'Home,' and listening to frontman Sonny Sandoval speak, and you instantly know this album was aimed right at the minds and hearts of not only their fans, but those open minded enough to their music to listen in.

"On 'Circles', we didn't limit ourselves and say, 'Hey, we need to please the metal crowd, or the hardcore crowd, or the punk crowd,'" says Sandoval. "We just wanted to play and write songs that we hope are relevant and catchy to a new audience, while, at the same time, still being true to ourselves."

"We're looking for answers and we're going to people to help us get through things but at the same time, no one's perfect," Sandoval adds. "Everybody's going through stuff, and we're all kind of on this same level and the same journey of experience and just trying to figure out our course of life."
