Reviewed by Paul Gallagher

The latest band from Audio Adrenaline's Flicker Records label, Staple continue in the tradition of P.O.D. and Pillar, delivering 40 minutes of non-stop, Bible-based, ear destroying rock, infused with just enough melody to be accessible to the open-minded radio listener. Lead singer Darin Keim can scream with the best of them, and in less shouty moments his voice takes on a surprisingly emotive quality, contrasting nicely with the harder edge. But lyrically, the songs are generally too earnest and concept-heavy for the listener to figure out what they are actually about. Lines like "Incited scars are bleeding and now I believe" from "Dictatorship Vs Democracy" fly past without leaving any impression or clear meaning. One notable exception is "Remember Sammy Jankis". The title is a reference to the film 'Memento', and the song questions the reliability of memory as a motive for revenge. Overall, Staple will keep hard music fans happy, but are not likely to entice new listeners to the genre.
