Shinedown

About

Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001 and founded by members Brent Smith (vocals), Brad Stewart (bass), Jasin Todd (guitar), and Barry Kerch (drums). A few lineup changes followed, and the band's current lineup consists of Smith and Kerch, the band's only two remaining original members, with guitarist Zach Myers, and bassist/pianist Eric Bass. Since Shinedown's inception, they have released four albums: Leave a Whisper (2003), Us and Them (2005), The Sound of Madness (2008), and Amaryllis (2012), and a total of 17 singles. They have sold more than 6 million albums worldwide.

Preceded by the emotionally charged first single "Bully," Amaryllis is the fourth studio album from Jacksonville, Florida-based post-grunge outfit Shinedown. The 12-track collection represents the first set of new material from the group since 2008's Sound of Madness.

The Sound Of Madness (Deluxe Edition)(CD/DVD)

List Price:
Amazon - Buy New For: $10.69 | Used For: $8.48
More Info...
Editorial Review: Shinedown's highly anticipated third album, 'The Sound Of Madness,' opens with lead single 'Devour.' Its heavy onslaught of ripping guitars and relentless drums would not sound out of place on a Guitar Hero soundtrack. Of the album, frontman Brent Smith says 'in the seven years of this thing called Shinedown, I've seen a lot of different things - what we've all gone through on the road, things in our personal lives or witnessed firsthand through the fans that we've made and the relationships we've built with our audience.' Their face-melting rock comes as no surprise, considering that the band hails from sultry Jacksonville, Florida.
'The Sound of Madness' Deluxe CD/DVD includes album tracks, bonus audio, official and live videos, and comes with a free year of fanclub membership with each purchase. 'The Sound of Madness' offers a brave and unsparing look into the soul and psyche amidst a fierce musical attack that, even in its quieter moments, vibrate with the passion, energy and focus of a band with high-minded ideals and limitless ambitions. The group's hard rock muscles flex on songs such as the first single, 'Devour,' 'Cry For Help,' 'Sin With a Grin' and the title track.
But the likes of 'The Crow and the Butterfly,' 'Breaking Inside' and their breakout single 'Second Chance' incorporate sophisticated, emotional dynamics (enhanced by a 20-piece string section), while Smith counts 'If You Only Knew' as his first straight-up love song.

Leave a Whisper

List Price:
Amazon - Buy New For: $7.50 | Used For: $2.11
More Info...
Editorial Review: As proven throughout their debut album, Leave A Whisper, vocalist Brent Smith, guitarist Jasin Todd, bassist Brad Stewart and drummer Barry Kerch have fully absorbed influences ranging from the classic sounds of Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin to the soulful stirrings of Otis Redding to today's chart-topping efforts of Staind and Tool--then filtered them all through their own unique musical perspectives. The result blends together bold, strident guitar power, blues-tinged vocal fury and cutting-edge metallic mayhem. Songs such as the powerful first single "Fly From The Inside," the emotive "No More Love" and the overwhelming "Burning Bright" show that in Smith, Shinedown sport one of the most talented singers and unconventional songwriters currently operating within a hard rock context. This is one guy who clearly plays by his own rules when it comes to creating great rock and roll.
