Shinedown - Us And Them
When the first mail concerning Shinedown entered my mailbox I read the promoter had never heard of this band. And why is this strange you think? This band has gone platinum in the States. Well, I immediately responded with the same thing, never heard of these guys but the MP3 sounded promising. After a long period and a contest on Metalrage I could finally call myself the proud owner of the Shinedown album Us And Them.
 
After the first time I listened to this album I was stunned by the quality of this band. The production is of high quality and the music is awesome. But you can expect this from a platinum band of course. But ever since I received this album it has been playing on my IPod, CD player, car or on my pc at least once a day. And although the sound is all a bit of the same on the record it never bored me once.
 
The vocals remind, again, me and others to Chris Cornell of Audioslave and Soundgarden. Though this guy gives his own twirl to the album. The musicians are very good and the lyrics are catchy. It is strange to hear this band never made it to Europe with a release. I hope that some record label is signing them here shortly because these guys can enter the charts over here as well!
 
On the album you can find brilliant rock songs like Begin Again (which musically reminds me to Staind) and Trade Yourself In. The first single of the album Save Me is a true No 1 hit and the video has been played on my computer often. My true favorite is I Dare You and this song blowing me away every time I listen it. What a rock band I have found with Metalrage.
 
Combining an amazing cover, great songs and a good video this band delivered a complete package to make it. Why they aren’t signed over here yet, I don’t know, but they're a huge hit in the States and will soon be a huge hit over here! This album is one of my favorite rock albums of this year and I can recommend this one to the Staind, Audioslave and Cold lovers visiting Metalrage.
