Atlanta-based quintet Sevendust are one of the most prominent nu-metal acts, rising above their contemporaries with an aggressive blend of bottom-heavy riffs and soulful, accessible melodies delivered by vocalist Lajon Witherspoon. Over the years, the band balanced the raw energy and brutality of early albums like 1997’s Sevendust and 1999’s Home with increasingly atmospheric production and even late-era acoustic sets on releases like Time Travelers & Bonfires (2014) and Kill the Flaw (2015), home to the Grammy-nominated single “Thank You.”
The thrash-oriented solo project of Mark Tremonti, the Grammy-winning lead guitarist of Alter Bridge (and formerly Creed), was formed in 2010 as an outlet for the prolific songwriter’s material that wasn’t suitable for his main band. Recruiting former Submersed members Eric Friedman and Garrett Whitlock, he went into the studio in 2011, recording his debut album, All I Was, during a period of three months when Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy was out on the road as a vocalist with Slash. The album, which was warmly received by critics, showcased a remarkably different sound from the guitarist’s previous work: heavy, fast thrash metal pronouncedly influenced by early Metallica yet featuring a strongly melodic core with hints of the post-grunge sound that made his other bands so popular. 2015’s Cauterize, his sophomore solo outing, and 2016’s Dust were recorded at the same time, and featured bass work from Wolfgang Van Halen. 2018 saw the release of the band’s fourth album, the more progressive concept effort A Dying Machine, on Napalm Records, which had also recently signed Alter Bridge. The group’s fifth LP, a reflective set about recent events, arrived with 2021’s Marching in Time.
