CD Review: Sevendust Aim For The "Sun" On New Album

Heavy metal band, Sevendust return after a three year hiatus to release their ninth studio album entitled "Black Out The Sun." The new album was produced by the band and was released on March 26 through the band's own label in association with ADA. They are following its release with a full U.S. tour with fellow metal bands Coal Chamber, Lacuna Coil and Candlelight Red.
The new album starts off with the gentle acoustic instrumental "Memory" as it quickly becomes a distant one as Sevendust kick it into high gear with "Faithless." The songs on this latest release are more complex with changes in tempo and feeling. They let out a little aggression in "Till Death" and show us how big their sound is on "Mountain," but the true Sevendust sound comes alive in the album's first single "Decay." The heaviness of "Nobody Wants It" and the grittiness of "Dark AM" balances well with the ballad "Got A Feeling." The album closes with the power and speed of "Murder Bar."
Sevendust will be performing at The Webster Theater in Hartford, CT on April 14 as part of their tour. For a complete list of tour dates and for more information on the new album, please visit
