Album Review

It would be foolish for someone to not find the driving, melodic songs found on Common Ground to be emotional, as this word could easily be Sunset Black's middle name. Their full-length debut is a dynamic hard rock behemoth that oozes passion from every enunciated vocal and aggressive guitar pluck. Discovered by labelmates Nonpoint, Sunset Black shares the emotive vocals akin to the aforementioned group, yet fuels their songs with lyrics full of mesmerizing depth and solid song structures. This results in an impressive album that runs the gamut of one's emotions, from despair to anger to love, and should appeal to fans of such bands as Staind, Thursday, and Dashboard Confessional. ~ Jason D.

Great stuff

First off let me say im very picky when it comes to music but this band is the real deal. It is one of those cds where you dont skip a song, it blows my mind that bands like Sunset Black don't get any air time. After a long break im glad they are making another album. Can't wait.

If you like Sunset Black, you will definitely love this band. The full album is available through Itunes and is called "Without The Hour". Spread the word and hope you enjoy!

I know they broke up after this album was released, but I've learned they've gotten back together and are working on album #2. Looking forward to it, whenever it drops. Until then, this album is great - it grows on you the more you listen.


Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Sunset Black combines melancholic grooves with powerful alternative rock, surpassing their musical influences, who range from Incubus to Deftones. Their tunes strongly rely on flaming guitar strains and the superior vocal commands of Brandon Sammons. Sunset Black first formed in Kansas City in 1995, embodied by Sammons, Mike Evans (guitar), TJ Matthews (bass), and Jaime Gehly (drums). In 1999, the group decided to relocate to Minneapolis, trying to reach a broader audience, and within short time...
