Chevelle
This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) (Epic Records)

By: Mike SOS

The band of brothers from Chicago known as Chevelle return with a righteous 11-track release that picks up where the multi-platinum debut Wonder What's Next left off. While many people merely write off this trio as Tool Light or a poppier Deftones, what can't be denied is that the Loeffler clan plays with an intensity that may sound familiar on the surface, but has never been in such a compact yet satisfying package before. Take songs like "Tug-O-War" as example: an evil chugging riff that pushes and pulls your ears in all directions before clubbing your conscious with an uplifting refrain, only to drag you back into a sinewy groove. That's what Chevelle does best: kick out grinding new school metal with hook-laden melody sans the overblown monotony from where they've derived.
