In 2003, three days grace made their debut with the self titled album, which has scanned over 1.25 million in the us to date and is certified platinum. The album spawned the us radio hits 'just like you' (#1 active and modern), 'i hate everything about you' (#2 active and alternative - played on active rock radio for an astonishing 50 weeks!) And 'home' (#1 active).On 'one x', the band explores sentiment with alarming honesty. A raw, confessional album, 'one x' finds front man adam gontier delving into a sense of utter loneliness that ironically comes from being constantly being surrounded by other people. 'one x' is simultaneously the story of gontier's personal destruction on the road, and a universal tale of feeling like an outsider.The enhanced cd contains behind the scenes footage.The band have played with such heavy hitters as nickelback, thornley, 3 doors down, puddle of mudd and evanescence. 2006.
Loaded with lyrics about nightmares, pain, isolation and broken relationships, One X
, the sophomore effort from Three Days Grace should be a downright bummer of a ride. Instead, the listener manages to find uplift lurking beneath the weighty lyrics as the quartet churns out a series of anthemic, crunch-chord songs. The band moves from arena-ready light metal with "It's All Over" to the sex groove of "Animal I Have Become," before plunging the listener into full-on chaotic heaviness during the anti-alienation anthem "Riot" and easing us into the atmospheric future hit "Get Out Alive." Throughout, TDG remains true to its core alt-metal sound. While that sound has been called unimaginative and unoriginal and at times does feel a little too familiar, the material on One X
is never less than convincing and it packs a serious and stinging rock n' roll punch track after track. --Jedd Beaudoin
