Product Description

Product Description

At first it sounds like Living Colour vocalist Corey Glover was spliced into a joint project between Faith No More and Testament, but the longer Sevendust's self-titled debut album plays, the more it takes on its own life. The Atlanta, Georgia band is well schooled in thrash metal, but it has a soft spot for sing-along melodies and more than a passing interest in hip-hop. Cobbled together, the results could sound fractured and divisive, but Sevendust's surging wah-wah guitars, razor-edged riffs, bloodcurdling screams, and soulful vocals blend together as smoothly as strawberries and rum. --Jon Wiederhorn

5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all started... Dec 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Truth be told, this isn't really their best album, as some would say. I say this because it lacks the diversity embraced in the other three albums. For instance, every song on Animosity sounds very different from the next, whereas you could easily confuse songs like "Terminator" and "Face" on this album. However, this is still an awesome mind-blowing experience that you owe it to yourself to pick up, and is defintely much better than their second outing Home. And it's a shame that bands like Godsmack and Staind, mediocre acts who started out opening for bands like Sevendust can sell more records but I'll be the first to point out that the music industry is pretty screwed up. Oh well, let's focus on the music, shall we?
While I may be tempted to dissect each and every song, I think I'll refrain from doing so. Like I said, some of the songs on here sound quite a bit like each other, but they're all pretty darn good. Opener "Black" is obviously the stand-out track and was the first single released on this album. Mixing catchy riffs, clever lyrics and bass with one hell of a pulse, it's no surprise that this is one of my favorite Sevendust songs.
"B*tch" is a great follow-up, and the subject material for that song is a little different from what most Sevendust fans would expect (though they sorta re-hashed this subject with "Enemy"). And then come the rapcore(ish) songs. Don't let me make this sound like a bad thing, Sevendust is NO Limp Bizkit, but the rapping can be irritating at times. But "Terminator", "Face" and "Speak" are all great, underrated songs that deserve more credit than they get. "Prayer" is probably my second favorite. This song is the only one that resembles Sevendust's more recent material. It's a nice, jazzy almost ballad-like tune with some surprisingly good lyrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good debut, an important album to me Jan. 21 2002
By JLA
Format:Audio CD
When this came out back in... I dunno, '97? Yeah, I think it was '97.. this record was my best friend. It was right up there with Metallica's "...Puppets" and "...Lightning" as albums I couldn't stop playing.
I was rather in touch with the mainstream rock vibe at that time, and I seriously thought Sevendust would become the next big thing. Their combination of nu-metal sounds with r&b vocals was so fresh, original, and good that they couldn't help but leave an impression. Once you hit the chorus of "Black" you know this isn't just any rock album. Its hard to headbang when you've got chills up your spine. "My Ruin" is a great slower song that dodges any sort of cheesy sounds that most metal ballads instantly have.
Of course, along came Korn's rather good "Follow the Leader" album and the new wave of popular metal formed in its wake. Sevendust are now fairly notable but not as much as I thought they would be. Why? Well, aside from my bad luck, the band was just unable to match this album in their second release, "Home". I don't own their their third album, "Animosity", but they did play a good chunk of it when I saw them live and I can't say that material is that good either - although I'll still take their work over most any nu-metal band (I just can't stomach this period in music, but to each their own).
Buy this album, but don't get too hopeful if you decide to buy more.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT April 17 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sevendust indeed deserves the credit they get. It tears me up when I hear people say "Who's Sevendust"? That problem's not as existant today luckily. Lajon's voice is primal, not in rage, but in projection. "Will it Bleed" and "My Ruin" are my favorite tracks. The rest are also good, although a bizarre hidden track most musicians give us these days would've been greatly appreciated, but this was a masterpiece. I get tingly at the thought of how their second will sound. Other bands to look for are System of a Down (like you haven't already heard of them), Monster Voodoo Machine, One Minute Silence, Staind, Acid Bath, Brad and Placebo. Also, an up and coming band you may want to look into and learn about are Slipknot, whom I also have good feelings about. I was really impressed with this album, and to top it off, the other musicians who make up components of the band also sing in the songs. Buy this album if you haven't, then check out the others I recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch metal with real passion and style Sept. 17 1998
Format:Audio CD
From their roots as Crawlspace practicing at the Wreck Room in Atlanta, this band has matured and become one of the hottest and most talked about metal bands to come on the scene in years.
Start with searing lead vocals, and in an incredibly heavy and tight drum and bass interaction, and then throw in a dual-edged sonic guitar assualt, and you have one of the strongest metal bands I have heard since Stuck Mojo and Rage Against The Machine first came on the scene back in the early nineties.
To see them know touring around the world with metal heavyweight Ozzy Osbourne and gaining fans at every show, it makes me proud to have seen them at their start back in the glory days to the Wreck Room (since closed after being sacrificed to the greed of the Olympics).
This album is a must have for any fan of solid, straight ahead metal. If you enjoy Tool, Limp Bizkit, Korn, or Rage Against the Machine, you will seriously enjoy Sevendust.

Beautiful masterpiece in musical history. The kind of cd which defines a generation. In your face for its time, cleverly crafted to mix chorus and breakdown riffs... quite unique

Sevendust's first record smokes. They tune way down, but sound like no other act out there. This is largely due to the impressive soulful vocals of Lajon Witherspoon. Read more
