The sound: hard-hitting drums, ominous guitar, and anthemic choruses have defined the sound of this alt-metal outfit since their first hit, “Wasteland.” A decade later, they’re still rocking with the release of their seventh studio album, From Birth to Burial.
The sound: although they made their mark as a hard-driving nü metal act in the early 2000’s, the band has since expanded its sonic palette with reggae and Latin grooves and a little punk rock punch, and racked up three Grammy nominations and 12 million sales in the process
The name: it’s an acronym that stands for “Payable On Death,” which ties to the Christian theology that permeates their lyrics
The leap of faith: despite living out of their car, the young and hungry band turned down a $100,000 record deal in 1998 because “God had a bigger plan for P.O.D.”
“Alive”: the uplifting 2001 rap-metal classic that became one of MTV and MTV2’s most played videos of that year, gave hope to listeners in the aftermath of 9/11, and is typically the grand finale of every P.O.D. concert
The Awakening: P.O.D.’s tenth and most recent studio album
The inspiration: of the new album’s conceptual nature, singer Sonny Sandoval says, “We’re putting something together that tells a story. Maybe it’s just for us, maybe it’s not for your average listener, but it’s something we’re having a lot of fun doing.”
