Those lyrics from the chorus of "Confessions (Without Faith)," one of the songs on Sevendust's eighth studio release Cold Day Memory, sum up this band's tenure. Since the late 90s they have largely gone under the radar, so to speak, of rock radio fame with the exception of some semi-popular singles. ("Black," "Denial," "Praise," "Enemy," "Ugly," "Driven," and "Prodigal Son," naming one from each of their previous seven albums.) These guys, however, have not let this lack of recognition affect the quality of their music or the admiration from their dedicated fanbase.

A little over two years ago I wrote a review for the then recently released Sevendust album Chapter VII: Hope and Sorrow. I stated something to the effect of it being the band's "best album since 2001's release, Animosity." After giving several thorough listens to Cold Day Memory (received it four days ago via pre-order from the band's website :-D), I am now eating my words. Animosity is often regarded by many loyal Sevendust fans as the band at their creative peak. I can confidently say, however, that this release has taken them to an entirely new level. With founding guitarist/backing vocalist Clint Lowery returning to the fold, it seems as though a spark was lit under the band members to write a batch of the strongest and most musically complex (yet still very accessible) tunes in their catalog.

Lowery has not contributed to or performed on a Sevendust album since 2003's Seasons album. To this date I am still unaware of exactly why he left (I've heard the usual "personal/creative differences" lines) but that's all moot now that he's back, and the band is all the better for it if you ask me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changed my mind. Really good stuff! September 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I reviewed this CD about a month ago and I gave it a 2 out of 5 stars. I have since deleted that review and am posting this one. This is their best album since Animosity. Animosity was a new direction for Sevendust in some ways and this reminds me of that. Sevendust in Clint's first album back writing is an edgier look into the souls of us all. What our strength's are and our betrayels. I love the new guitar work that they have added here. It gives it that slicing ice cold heavy sound giving good reason for the title. All forces are at control of their craft at it's best. Thoroughly enjoying it! Sorry for the initial doubt guys! Had to give it a little more time and attention to fully appreciate. Thanks again for all the years of great music!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Return of the Prodigal Son April 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It's been almost seven years since Atlanta, Georgia's Sevendust have recorded with original guitarist Clint Lowery in tow. In that time, Lowery played in Dark New Day with his brother Corey and filled in as a hired-gun for Korn, before reconnecting with the band just in time for the release of 2008's, Chapter VII: Hope and Sorrow, which was recorded with his replacement, Sonny Mayo, in tow. Although Mayo helped keep the band pumping through nearly three album cycles worth of recording and touring, Lowery's absence was noticeably felt, and longtime fans will breathe a sigh of relief at his return to the fold with the band's eighth (!) album, "Cold Day Memory."

Like any good Sevendust album, "Cold Day Memory" kicks off with a bang. "Splinter" opens the album with some killer leads by Lowery (oh how we missed you) and the patented three-part vocal harmonizing between the guitarist, singer Lajon Witherspoon and drummer Morgan Rose. From there, the band keeps the energy going through tracks like "Unraveling" and "Forever," which, at their heart, are classic Sevendust and sound like they could have been lost tracks from 2001's Animosity. "Karma" finds the band simultaneously crushing and caressing with a killer breakdown that seems designed to incite a moshpit giving way to the soulful melodies of Witherspoon, only serving to show that they've still got it after all of these years.

Unfortunately, the middle of the album doesn't quite live up to what the beginning promises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done April 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been following these guys since about '99 and have enjoyed their course. Alpha was hard, but it did feel like they were doing just because, though I did like the album. These guys have unfortunately been under the radar for far too long and deserve more credit. Over the years, my taste in music grew from Bush to Creed to Sevendust to mostly Death Metal now, but I have always stuck with Sevendust. I have introduced as many people to this band as possible and have yet to find anyone who dislikes them, despite the fact that many of these individuals avoid metal at all costs. With this album they have come out in full force. I usually wait a month or two to really get to know the album before reviewing it. However this one is just amazing in it's diversity and execution. Great band, phenomenal album.

4.0 out of 5 stars On par with the rest of their stuff
Lajon is his usual glorious self. I'd rate this album on par with the other stuff they've released. It's worth a purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Sevendust's Best
In fact as far as Sevendust goes this album is very low on the list for for being one of their best. I think this band totally rocks and every CD is loaded with great music. Read more
