Sevendust is an American alternative metal band rioting up in Atlanta, Georgia, and a couple of new places ( Go check out their official webpage! ). Formed during the post grunge Era, this band became one of the rising acts in the 1990’s. The band experiments with its sound, the guitars are dropped to low keys, electronic elements filling the transitions between the verses and crunchy rhythms which makes you want to jump. The drum fills are always complementary to the guitar riffs.
Their sound has a mix of distorted heavy metal riffs clubbed with a grunge sound that sets this band apart from the rest. Their vocalist, Lajon Witherspoon, adds a distinct voice to this band, and drives the song’s direction. His voice has the intensity and power that can be felt while listening to Max Cavelera, no wonder this band lists Ministry, Anthrax, Twisted Sister and Sepultura as some of its influences.
Sevendust self-produced and released their tenth Studio album, Kill the Flaw, on October 2nd 2015 giving distribution to ADA/Warner Brothers. This album was recorded at the Architekt Music studio in Butler, New Jersey. The band has also released a lyric video for the Song Not Today, and was nominated for the 2016 Grammy awards for the song Thank you.
