Flashback to April of 2010, Sevendust released their eighth studio album, Cold Day Memory. The album debuted at number 12 on the Billboard 200, and sold around 27,000 copies in its first week alone, here in the US. To this day, this is still their highest ranking album on the Billboard 200, with their newest album, Kill The Flaw with a close second.
The lead single from this album, "Unraveling", was actually the first song we ever heard from Sevendust. Therefor, that one is very obviously a stand out track to us. I noticed a re-occuring them with this album. Through out the album, they speak of struggles in life, and share their thoughts on the situations.
You hear about coming part, you hear about wanting away from someone, the feeling of going insane, and so much more.
Aside from Unraveling though, we really didn't have a track that stood out to us. They're all very good, and thought provoking. There's a bit of a religious undertone to some of the lyrics, which was a bit surprising, but that is most definitely just an undertone.
This is a very good album all around, and we recommend you check out not only this album, but the three others released from Sevendust since this one was out. The latest is Kill The Flaw, which came out in October of last year. We just did a review of it, for anyone interested. In support of that album, and just in the spirit of touring, they're going out on tour with Trivium and Like a Storm this spring. The tour starts on April 26, and goes through May 27, and will have several festival appearances in between! Those festivals include Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, Lunatic Luau '16, Carolina Rebellion, Rock On The Range, Rock'n Derby, and the River City Rockfest.

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.
