I think the term “Super Group” gets thrown around a lot these days, and it has been attached to Dark New Day for some reason. Yes the band has members from Sevendust, Stuck Mojo, and Evanescence but let’s be honest I don’t think the world at large will be remotely aware of or consider this a super gathering. That may be even more true after hearing the record. When I’m told that I’m listening to a super group I expect to be blown away, truthfully I was anything but. Unfortunately Dark New Day released a slick, well produced, formulaic radio rock album loaded with B-sides at best.
Normally I’d break down a few songs but as is the case with the majority of the Nu-Metal classification the music is arena built and so similar in sound it’s hard to distinguish one from another. Clint Lowery of Sevendust is probably the most recognizable name of all the band members, my question for Clint would be why have a side project that sounds so similar to his main band without the good tunes?
Dark New Day will no doubt grab recognition for the album and fans of the band and Nu-Metal will appreciate it for what it is, but I don’t see new fans waiting in line or rushing out to add this one to their respective libraries.
