President Evil - Hell In A Box

Despite their lame and generic name, "Hell In A Box" by PRESIDENT EVIL is a fairly decent Stoner Metal album, albeit a bit on the boring side at times.

I really wanted to like this album moreso than I did, but the great riffs are just too few and far between. Most of the songs here are just too bland and I also wasn't a huge fan of the "cleaner" sounding vocals. I prefer vocals with a bit more grit and aggression, but that's just my personal opinion. But really, this is just one of those albums that isn't anything special overall, but every once in a while a great riff comes out of nowhere.

Fans of the genre will probably want to check this out, as there are times when the music isn't totally uninspired, but other than that, I'd recommend looking into other similar bands who aren't as uninteresting and predictable.
