The only two original members left, guitarist Wayne Swinny and bassist Dave Novotny keep pushing their band forward with a new line up on their 8th album "In it to win it".
Singer Bobby Amaru (ex.Burn Season) has replaced Josey Scott who left the band to pursue a solo career, together they have created a solid Saliva album with less rap and instead focus on active rock charting songs like "Choke" and "In it to win it". The new single "1,000 days" sounds a bit like Sevendust while songs such as "Rise up" and "Flesh" are typical Saliva songs that could´ve been recorded with Josey Scott.
15 tracks might be a bit too much since the last three tracks feels like album fillers, but the album opens strong with "Animal" and "She can sure hide crazy". They rock.
Whatever happened to the song "All around the world" that Saliva posted on youtube in 2012? It´s not included on the new album.
