Alice In Chains - Check My Brain

Alice in Chains is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987 by guitarist Jerry Cantrell and vocalist Layne Staley. The band is known for its distinct vocal style which often included the harmonized vocals of Staley and Cantrell.
Alice in Chains was plagued by extended inactivity due to Layne Staley's problems with substance abuse, culminating in his death in 2002. They reunited in 2005 with new lead vocalist William DuVall and released Black Gives Way to Blue, their first studio album in 14 years, on September 29, 2009.
So how does this new album sound like?
Even if replacing Staley is not the easiest way to do and it needs some guts to make it real and also to keep the status and be able to make any success with the upgrade of a already existing trademark.

New singer William DuVall – a hardcore singer from Atlanta, Georgia and has a voice and a way to sing that is almost the same as Staley.
The new album is truly deliver the trademark of Alice In Chains,
tunes as the single Check My Brain has the great melodic sound with great riffs and a chorus that you could build a supermarket on.
The title track is a touching ballad with guest appearance by Elton John and it's a tribute to Layne Staley, or the tune A Looking In View with the Psychedelic touch of Pop with real heavy guitar riffs almost that Cantrell is have been dreaming of Tony Iommi.

The fact that Alice in Chains still sound like Alice in Chains means that Staley’s tainted talent will never be forgotten, Black Gives Way to Blue is an overwhelming great album and its highly recommended.
