SEVENDUST TAPS CHRIS DAUGHTRY FOR GUEST SPOT; AXL ROSENBERG OFFICIALLY LOSES ALL INTEREST IN SEVENDUST
Next didn’t do much for me and Alpha did even less; so the news that Chris Daughtry will do a guest spot on the new Sevendust album, Hope and Sorrow, would seem to signal the official end of my interest in Sevendust. Yes, they now join Metallica, Megadeth, Aerosmith, AC/DC, and whatever band Vinnie Paul is playing with this week in my “Who gives a shit anymore?” pile. If working with some dip shit from American Idol is what gets the dudes in Sevendust off these days, then we were clearly headed down divergent paths anyway; Bon Jovi basically plays country these days, so I understand that sometimes bands I enjoyed in my youth and I are just going to have irreconcilable differences.
I’m sure at least one of our fine readers will accuse me of being close minded, and yet another will call me a hypocrite for ever liking Sevendust when I so openly loathe Korn; to those people, all I can say is “Your mother sucks cocks in hell.” Sometimes I have an itch for melodic pop metal that requires something a little more substantial than “All Day I Dream About Sex” but a little less weighty than “Stinkfist.” So blow me.
Anyway, it looks like there’s finally gonna be a new Dark New Day album this year. Maybe that’ll cure my jones for something cool n’ catchy.
