We just past the 19th anniversary of Sevendust's debut album, which is self titled. The album peaked on the Billboard 200 at 165 and the Top Heatseekers at number 5! It stayed in the Billboard 200 for a total of sixteen weeks. So it did fairly well, especially for a debut album!
The first single was "Black", which right off the bat paints quite the picture. You're just minding your own business, but then a darker period falls over you. Thoughts start surrounding you, and others can tell you're not alright. You suppress it, but it still creeps back up. Anyone with any form of mental illness will certainly connect with this song. So, that is a great introduction to the world, Sevendust!
All the songs seem to have a theme of struggling with life, yet taking it for yourself. Particularly the song, "Terminator", actually. "Terminator" is his story, his fight song if you will. Everything is fucked up, but deep down, you know you will make it through. You've got this. The song says it best, "Long time coming, somebody catch my train. its too late, its driving me insane. Everybody is going somewhere else. This is my story yo, peace." Something's gotta give, and you're going to do whatever you damn well please.
Hands down, this is a beautiful introduction to the world! Great job, Sevendust! This set you up for a legacy that is still growing nineteen years later. Sevendust have released eleven studio albums, one of which is acoustic. We have now reviewed evert single one here on Immortal Music, and you can check them all out below, if you would like!
