Twelve Year Silenceby Dark New Day
Dark New Day are a supergroup for the active rock/post-grunge sound that grew out of the American South in the 1990s and early 2000s. The bandmembers' credits include Sevendust, Stereomud, Stuck Mojo, and Doubledrive; vocalist/guitarist Brett Hestla even served as Creed's touring bassist. Of course, "supergroup" also means this is a quintet of veterans. And as the first single, "Brother," proves, they know how to push buttons. It's a professional blend of terse electric guitar, brooding familial bond lyrics, and reedy verses that scratch at the chunky electric precipice like denuded tree branches. They might have grown up together in struggling bands, but the members of Dark New Day found success with the big-time alternative metal formula. So they already know how to sell records, and from Tool, Alice in Chains, and Nickelback -- not to mention the work of the bands they came from -- the catalogs of proven winners combine in the shadows of Silence. They might sell a lot of records, but Dark New Day don't challenge the status quo.

This is a talented band. The songs have great melody lines, catchy hooks , and creative lyrics. The single brother is so unique - I cant get the guitar riff out of my head.
