Seether is a kick-ass rock band from South Africa known for their post-grunge and alternative metal style. The band formed in 1999 under their original band name of Saron Gas. They changed their name in 2002 after they were discovered by Wind-up Records to avoid confusion with Sarin Gas (a deadly gas). They re-named their band after the song "Seether" by Veruca Salt.
A few popular songs of theirs are Truth, Remedy, Gasoline, Fine Again. Another famous song of Seether's is Broken, an older song of theirs that was turned into a rock ballad duet. Broken is sung by Seether's lead singer Shaun Morgan and lead singer Amy Lee from the band Evanescence. The duet most likely came about due to the fact that Shaun and Amy were in a relationship at that time.
Since the band formed, they have come out with one live album (One Cold Night) and five studio albums (Fragile, Disclaimer, Disclaimer II, Karma and Effect, and Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces). However, they will be coming out with their new album in summer of 2010!
Seether has a great heavy & melodic style with deep, interesting, and often angsty lyrics that touch a variety of emotions and topics. Shaun Morgan has a strong, powerful voice to add to the awesome music and lyrics........and a good screaming voice as well! The other band members also add good harmony as backing voice. Everyone is easy on the eyes too.
Overall, Seether is a wonderful band. Definitely a favorite of mine.
Rock on Seether!!!
