Doing quite the throwback here to October 2007, when Seether released their fourth studio album, Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces. The album came out world wide on October 23, 2007 and features three of the most iconic Seether songs to be releases thus far.
Those songs include, "Fake It", "Rise Above This" and "Breakdown." All three have broken into the top ten of the Billboard 200, and were released in that order as singles. Even if you don't realize it, chances are, you've heard those songs because that's how popular they got.
Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces reached number nine in the US and New Zealand, and number ten in Canada. It also has gold certifications in South Africa, the US, and New Zealand, Canada! So, for obvious reasons, this album did fantastic. I would dare to say its the most successful Seether album to date.
Now, obviously, the three singles stand out, that goes without saying. I mean, hello...there's now an annual festival every year headlined by Seether that's called the Rise Above festival. Surely that's inspired by the incredibly powerful, "Rise Above This."
For the most part, the album is quite heavy hearted, but you definitely can appreciate all of the raw emotions that are in the album. However, not every song is like that, as there is one song that's just for fun. Everyone likes a good ol' sex song, right? They decided to release one called "Fuck Me Like You Hate Me", which does sort of feel like its about someone who was once really close to you, but now is just someone to sleep with. Its a really fun, catchy song, and there for, it stands out.
The entire album does though, and if you somehow haven't heard it, you either are not a Seether fan or have been living under a rock. Please be sure to check it out, and everything else Seether has done so far! Since this album came out, they've released two more albums and done a ton of touring.
Speaking of touring, head on over to Seether's official website to see all they have going on. August 6 is the third annual one, and this year will be headlined by Disturbed, Volbeat and of course Seether. Prior to that, they have a few shows around the US in early and late July. Come see and stay tune for more Seether content!
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.
