Album Review

While every alternative metal band can no doubt assert that its lyrics exploring gloomy landscapes of mishandled relationships/too many wedgies in gym class/tortured Oedipal complexes offer the maximum amount of renewal and release for its fans, most albums in the genre are actually elaborate piss for distance contests. Who has the best Mesa Boogie rectifiers, the strongest vocal chords, and the most bitchin' tattoos? These are the pressing issues that are dealt with subliminally on Every Given Moment. While Stereomud's 2001 debut, Perfect Self, was a sometimes credible alt-metal growler with almost no distinguishing characteristics, the follow-up is a beast from Hell. Thanks to producer/engineer John Travis (Kid Rock, Buckcherry), Stereomud somehow sounds even more enormous, with multiple layers of roaring guitar, gritty, sludgy basslines, and propulsive, beefy drumming. This is a huge plus in a genre where bands live and die by the tenets of volume, rage, and tough-guy rock posing. "Show Me"'s quiet-loud dynamics are utterly predictable, but nevertheless launch the album out of the gate effectively. "Anything but Jesus" is a Disturbed sound-alike; fortunately, it's not even close to being Every Given Moment's high watermark. The album hits its stride with "Define This," a song that will crush unworthy stereo systems with its lockstep rhythms and faceless slabs of depraved guitar tone. Stereomud shoots itself in the foot with "Coming Home." Though it's a valiant attempt at melodic alt-metal, it fails when surrounded by the full-throttle funny-car thunder of tracks like "Drop Down" and "Fallen." Every Given Moment should give Stereomud bragging rights in the nu-metal herd, at least until DOD develops an even sicker distortion/compression pedal.

Customer Reviews


this album rocks!!! stereomud is a great band its too bad they broke up after only a couple albums.

Forget what the review says...

these guys kick major booty baby. if you enjoyed the first album entitled "perfect self" then you will flip over this one. whereas 'self' maintained an angry pattern throughout,'every' broadens their talents. incporporating a much broader selection of topics forces the band to change their direction a bit. don't get me wrong ('mud' fans understand where i'm coming from...)they still hit you with the one-two punch of hammering loops and sonic percussion. it just doesn't let up. give the first couple of tracks a play or two, and you'll get it.


Please do not listen to the overly critical tone of the initial review... whoever wrote it doesn't know jack about good music. This is a excellent sophomore effort by Stereomud! Anything But Jesus is my favorite tune on the album. "Searching" is a great track as well. All the songs are solid! Give it a spin or two.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Most of the members of Stereomud (vocalist Eric Rogers, bassist Corey Lowery, drummer Dan Richardson, plus guitarists John Fattoruso and Joey Z) aren't newcomers to heavy rock -- Richardson is veteran of both the Crumbsuckers and Pro-Pain, Joey Z was in Life of Agony, while Lowery used to be in Stuck Mojo. Since the members hail from either New York or Georgia, the quintet split their time between the two states, as they honed their heavy yet melodic sound by playing shows and appearing on the now-defunct...
