New Music Review: Sum 41 Is “Screaming Bloody Murder”

On the band’s new single, “Screaming Bloody Murder,” which made it’s radio debut yesterday, Sum 41 isn’t quite taking the devil by the horns and…you know the rest, it’s a bit graphic.  Instead, one of the finest Pop-Punk acts produced by our yak riding sisters and brethren to the north opted to go the route of angelic choir choruses.  Well, fallen angels anyway.  In fact, spike-headed front-man Deryck Whibley goes so far as to call “bullshit” on God’s preordained path for us all with fire-licked opening verse that states “God’s got a plan for me/Well I’m gonna tell you one thing/I don’t got the patience or the time/What can I say, I’m no angel/I’m not forsaken/But I can bleed!”

Sum 41 seems to have made a musical transition in its career.  The band has left its teenage angst in the past, turning its angry sights on religion rather than the mental anguishes of misunderstood high school students.  Although Sum 41 has matured, one thing remains the same, the fret work still kicks the same amount ass as it always has.
