  • Quotes

    • Morgan: It saddens me that our whole relationship was reduced to that. That, you know, almost three years we spent together comes down to 'Oh, woe is me, you don't care about me.' I'm disappointed that that's all that really mattered. I'm kind of irritated that our dirty laundry had to be aired, you know, all over the world. I wouldn't do that to somebody.

  • South African grunge is such a great music genre

    Seether is a really great band. It suprised me that they were from south africa, go figure? lol. Their music is great, and I love everything about this band. A few of my favorite songs from them are, "Remedy" and "Fake It" But my favorite has to be "Broken" Featuring Amy Lee. I heard that he wrote "Fake it" for Amy Lee. And she wrote "Call me when you're sober" for him. Haha, that sounds intersting. Anyway, I love this bands sound, voice and style. I hope they continue to make music. As long as they make it, i'll listen to it.moreless

    You wanna talk awesome? You wanna talk about great rock bands? You simply cannot overlook the obscure, South African grunge band Seether. These guys rock!



    I got hooked on this band when I heard their single 'Broken' which featured Shaun Morgan's (the lead singer's) girlfriend of band Evanescence Amy Lee. That was an awesome hit in my mind.



    But when I bough their other albums such as 'The Punisher', 'Disclaimer 2' and 'Karma and Effect' I got a taste of their unique, awesome style of rock and grunge.



    Shaun Morgan (like Chad Kroeger of Nickelback) has a voice that seems weird at first, but really suits and compliments the style of music these guys go by. Pat Callaghan has a lot of potential as a guitarist, Dale Stewart is an at Bass and John Humphrey rules on the drums!



    For anyone who's a fan of the heavier kind of rock, I strongly recommend Seether. You won't regret hearing these guys!moreless
