On November 13, 2001, Sevendust released their third studio album, Animosity! The album reached number one on the Top Independent album charts, number 28 on the Billboard 200, 34 in Australia and 26 in Australia! It also stayed in the Billboard top 200 for thirteen consecutive weeks.
The first single "Praise" came out sometime in 2001 before the album's release and it also did fairly well on charts. It came in at number 15 on the Mainstream Rock charts and number 23 on Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song itself I think is rather religious like the title suggests, but at the same time I can't completely tell. Its not a bad song, but all at once is not really my cup of tea.
A track I do really like though is "Shine." Its coming from a place deep within, where you feel lost and are just wondering how you're doing anything. You're also feeling like you're just going through the motions and now are trying to find yourself and a path where you do not feel that way. This song is all about that, and much like a lot of Sevendust's lyrics it feels very genuine and was clearly written as a release. Its beautiful, and I think a lot of people could appreciate it.
Actually, people could very easily appreciate the entire album, along with the rest of Sevendust's discography. Speaking of, we have done reviews for almost all of their albums! More are still coming but we are hoping to complete reviews for all of their albums before Fort Rock! Which is just one of many festivals Sevendust will be appearing at here very shortly!
They also will be making appearances at Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, Lunatic Luau '16,Carolina Rebellion, 98.9 The Rock's Rockfest, Northern Invasion, Rock On The Range, Rock N Derby,Rocklahoma, and River City Rockfest. For further information, please head on over to the respective festival websites or Sevendust's official website!

All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
