Now comes to us Black Out The Sun, the ninth album from Georgia rockers SEVENDUST, and the band's first since 2010's Cold Day Memory. The band reconvened from their extended break to put down some of the best material of their careers on this CD. This is 100% SEVENDUST, and right from the first track, "Faithless" and it's DISTURBED-ish heavy groove, the band once again has what it takes to rock the hell out of you. From guitarist Clint Lowery's growling vocals on "Till Death" to the acoustically mellow "Got A Feeling", this CD has something to satisfy even the casual SEVENDUST fan, yet is hard enough to please the hardcore ones.

The album was self-produced by the band, recorded in basically one month and is chock full of songs that could be considered as singles. Take your pick from songs like the aforementioned "Faithless", "Cold As War", "Dead Roses", "Black Out The Sun" or "Dark AM"; they all have hit potential, so heavy yet melodic. Even the band's first single, "Decay", is slightly reminiscent of one of their earliest hits, "Denial". Consistency is the key here for SEVENDUST's career and heavy riffs and great choruses make this CD a must have for 2013!

I absolutely love it when a band puts out an album that is great from start to finish, with no urge to skip a track, and that's exactly what SEVENDUST has done with Black Out The Sun. It's no surprise that it debuted at #18 and also earned the band it's first #1 on the Hard Album Music charts. Put it in and crank it up!
