KILL THE FLAW
When I first saw Sevendust’s new release was titled KILL THE FLAW, my initial thought was “what exactly is the flaw?” It leads you to wonder just what it is that caused this band to not break big, while bands with lesser quality catalogs like Disturbed or Korn had such crazy amounts of success at the same time. This is not to say that either of those two bands were bad, but they certainly were not Sevendust. When you look at their career and their catalog, the only flaw most of us can find is the listening public. Not only is their music great, but their catalog is one of the most consistent in hard rock history. And yet, year after year fans are subjected to 30 minute sets opening for bands that don’t have half the talent, staying power or musical integrity that Sevendust possesses. The “flaw”, in my eyes anyway, is the audience.
