Album Review

At 15 years old, Seether are starting to slide into middle age and, appropriately, their music is beginning to mature on Isolate and Medicate, their sixth studio album. Once again working with Brendan O'Brien, the grunge-era superstar who helmed Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, Seether gravitate toward the melodic, a shift apparent in both the verses and the riffs, although there's still a tendency to grind out thick neo-grunge guitar workouts both slow ("My Disaster") and fast ("Suffer It All"). These bursts of heaviosity are the exceptions to the rule, though, for much of Isolate and Medicate finds Seether uncannily re-creating the sound and style of Nickelback, to the point where "Nobody Praying for Me" seems to follow the cadences of "How You Remind Me." This is where O'Brien provides a huge assist to Seether. A dexterous, nimble producer, he gives Isolate and Medicate considerable color and variety, letting Shaun Morgan's growl and guitar breathe in equal measure, often giving the impression that the songs are a little more melodic than they actually are. Despite the creeping Chad Kroegerisms — they're not just there on "Nobody Praying for Me," but on many of the record's boldest songs — Seether often one-up their former tourmates because Morgan isn't a bellower, either as a vocalist or writer; he prefers muscular melodies to brute force, and sometimes they do hit hard on Isolate and Medicate. [Isolate and Medicate was also released on LP.]

Mad World

Listen close to words as weapons and it's hard to deny that they stole the lyrical melody from "mad world" but it sounds awesome, so I could really care less.


So I never review things on here but I HAVE to make an exception for this album. I've been a Seether fan since Disclaimer II and I own all of their albums. Isolate and Medicate feels different from past albums, and some songs might not appeal to the Disclaimer crowd but coming from someone who has enjoyed each and every album, this one blows all their previous ones out of the water. Shaun still has the gruff vocals and screams we all love, and even takes a few chances by incorporating different vocal techniques that Seether aren't known for. Dale has some great basslines, from really meaty ones to slower more atmospheric tones as well as some good harmonies and back up vocals. As a drummer myself, John has been a huge inspiration and does not fail to deliver on this album. With some clever beats and great fills, I can't wait to learn these on drums. The songs range from heavy, guitar driven tracks, to slower, more atmospheric stuff showcasing the guys' softer side and everything in between. This is a MUST BUY. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.


Words As Weapons sounds fantastic! Gonna be the best Seether album yet!

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Hailing from South Africa and comprising members Shaun Morgan (vocals, guitar), Dale Stewart (bass), and John Humphrey (drums), Seether embraces a brand of heavy metal mostly associated with the post-grunge era of alternative music, complete with crunchy distortion and brooding textures. The band emerged in 1999 as Saron Gas (a name taken from the back of a sound effects CD) and released their debut album, Fragile, the following year on Musketeer Records. In a country whose musical tastes center...
