US headbangers SEVENDUST have unveiled a new music video for the latest song released from their twelfth studio album and Rise Records debut, All I See Is War. “Unforgiven” is set in a post-apocalyptic world created from an idea director Scott Hansen presented to the band. The concept is that the world is rebuilding and the youth will be the ones to keep mankind going long after the adults are no longer around, a message that has been shared throughout society for decades. The video can be seen here:
“The ‘Unforgiven’ video was a great experience for me. I loved working with everyone on that shoot. It was like being in a movie for real and I hope we can do something like that again,” enthuses vocalist Lajon Witherspoon.
SEVENDUST’s twelfth studio album, ‘All I See Is War’ has picked up notable critical acclaim, with Rock Sound stating, “impeccably slick… the quality of these songs remains undeniable.” Kerrang! added, “a surprisingly contemporary return,” praising frontman Lajon Witherspoon as “the velvet-throated singer sounding every bit as impressive as he did at the turn of the millennium.” Total Guitar laud the band for “consistently strong albums, packing heavy hooks, soulful vocal harmonies, and inventive rhythms,” while Classic Rock praised “the Atlanta band’s best album in years… a solidly emphatic musical statement.” Upset championed SEVENDUST’s history, complimenting, “Twelve albums in, they still know how to rock.” Powerplay awarded the album a 9/10 score, declaring it a “masterpiece of sound… emphasising the band’s artistry to its full potential.” As for the live show, when Metal Hammer caught their set at a major US festival this summer, they bestowed a 9/10 rating and called them, “one of the day’s best bands.”
