Biography

The Atlanta-based quintet Sevendust became one of the rising acts in late-'90s heavy metal with an aggressive blend of bottom-heavy riffs and soulful, accessible melodies. The band, comprised of frontman Lajon Witherspoon, John Connolly (guitar), Clint Lowery (guitar), Vince Hornsby (bass), and Morgan Rose (drums), first appeared in 1995 as Crawlspace, releasing the single "My Ruin" on the Mortal Kombat: More Kombat recording. Shortly thereafter, the group changed its name to Sevendust and released a self-titled debut in 1997. Two years later, the bandmates issued the gold-selling Home and played over 800 shows alongside such groups as Creed, along with a stop at Woodstock '99. Their angst-ridden third album, the aptly titled Animosity, appeared in fall 2001, and Seasons followed in 2003. Next In late December 2004, word surfaced that Lowery had left the band, and those rumors proved true the following February when Sevendust announced ex-Snot guitarist Sonny Mayo as Lowery's replacement. (Lowery, a co-founder of Sevendust, eventually surfaced in the hard rock supergroup Dark New Day.) Next, Sevendust's fifth album and their first self-produced effort, appeared in October 2005. The record failed to sell as much as its predecessors, but Sevendust nevertheless signed to Asylum Records and issued Alpha in March 2007. Alpha fared better than Next, climbing to number 14 on the Billboard charts and paving the way for the band's seventh effort. Chapter VII: Hope and Sorrow arrived in April 2008, featuring an appearance by former American Idol star Chris Daughtry, followed by Cold Day Memory in 2010. Their ninth album, Black Out the Sun, arrived in 2013. Looking to change things up, the band's next release was a bit of an experiment, with the guys stripping away their metal edge to release an album of acoustic tracks. Time Travelers & Bonfires, released in the spring of 2014, debuted at number 18 on Billboard's Top 200. A year later, the group returned with the heavier Kill the Flaw.

  • He Is Legend

    Belief can be a powerful thing. When shared even among a small group, possibilities remain endless. That brings us to He Is Legend’s fifth full-length offering, few [Spinefarm Records]. The communal faith belonging to a cadre of musicians, artists, and fans brought the collection to life. That’s why the title, a nod to Madame Helena Blavatsky’s occult treasure The Voice of the Silence, feels so cosmically apropos for the Wilmington, NC quartet—Schuylar Croom [vocals], Adam Tanbouz [lead guitar], Matty Williams [bass], and Denis Desloge [guitar].

  • Never Your Zero

    Since their inception, Never Your Zero has established themselves as a band hell-bent on scratching their way out from underneath their metropolitan underpinnings of Dallas, TX. Never Your Zero has built a solid foundation of dynamic modern rock that could catapult the band to the top of the hard rock scene. Frontman Christopher Roberts is one of Never Your Zero's most potent musical weapons with a versatility that allows him to shift from guttural screams to a haunting melodic chorus in an instant. Roberts is backed by an insanely tight rhythm section in drummer Clay Wise and bassist Matthew Gene, who power Never Your Zero's powerful sonic soundscape.
