CD Review:Do You Want To Start A War?(Released July 22, 2014)Century Media Records(Edited)

This review was initially done prior to the release of the album I had posted the wrong album cover and title of the album as well, this has been corrected.

The title song  kicks this rocking album off and regardless of what you think of Chris Jericho being a professional wrestler -he has a great voice for Rock music.

Always open to new things they actually do a cover for ABBA'S "SOS" which is very standard and traditional cover of the song but the band really comes alive when they play their own songs, the album theme song is average at best but still good for the most part.

Band's Bio:
The band Fozzy has really always been about one thing: having fun. What started out for guitarist Rich Ward as a weekend cover band soon became an internationally signed act with the biggest star in professional wrestling, Chris Jericho, as its lead singer. Their first few releases still had Fozzy playing covers but with adopted stage names and a backstory written for the movies. When you have such high-energy performers like Ward and Jericho – it still is debatably on who jumps higher, Ward on stage with his guitar or Jericho in the ring – creating a ‘for fun’ band was easy, however Ward and Jericho aren’t just entertainers. Ward is probably one of the greatest and unjustly so, underrated riffers in rock and metal today. Jericho singing ability and overall passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to find the time to excel in pretty much everything he does. It was these qualities that pushed the band to drop alter egos, get rid of the backstory and write original music.
