There are bands who tour with groups like Creed, and there are bands who tour with groups like Slipknot, but none that can do both…unless of course you're Sevendust. Many bands within the metal music scene get trapped in the classic stereotype of being just "a bunch of noise," but Sevendust has always found that perfect mix of harmony vs. hostility - thus creating a sound that is truly unique in its own. Their chunky guitar riffs matched with aggressive, yet soulful lyrics have been attracting many artists who have studied, but can never duplicate their individual style. One of their key components is the loud screaming, hard hitting, deranged Alien Freak himself…Morgan Rose. An influence to just about every drummer in the metal genre we had the chance to speak with Morgan after a show to get his take on the new Sevendust album, and his opinion on what has helped the group withstand the test of time.
