Sevendust have toiled away for years, recording and touring as underdog soldiers while lesser hard-rock acts have achieved success with luck as opposed to raw talent. The Atlanta quintet's fourth studio release finds the band grooving harder, with less focus on machine-gun-syncopation and grinding, chugging riffs (a trademark of their earlier works).
SEASONS is arguably the band's crossover album, boasting huge choruses with killer hooks. Songwriting/producing guru Butch Walker (formerly of the Marvelous 3) has lent his magic touch to up-and-comers Injected and Bowling for Soup (the latter resulting in a Grammy nomination for "Girl All the Bad Guys Want"), and now puts his unmistakable stamp on album tracks "Enemy" and "Separate," as well as the title cut, which he co-wrote with the group. Much of the creative angst behind SEASONS seems to be driven by tragic personal losses that members of the band struggled with during production. This therapeutic expression delivers Sevendust's most heartfelt collection of songs to date.
