User Album Review
The poet, Cesar A. Cruz, once said with regards to art, that he sees his role as a simple one; “to comfort the disturbed, and to disturb the comfortable”. For as long as they have been making music, it would seem Seether have embodied the spirit in which these words were spoken, in every note and lyric they have produced to date. ‘Poison the Parish’ is not only no exception to this, in the bands career, it may be in fact be the most blatant and raw example of it. Within these songs, there are moments that are almost difficult to listen to. Not from any lacking in good production or songwriting, no, but from the sheer cut throat honesty Seether strive to deliver time and time again. When you hear this record, it is as if you had listened to someone confess their worst sins, the burdens they carry and the struggles they combat every day, like their utmost trust has been bestowed upon to you, the listener, from someone in their most vulnerable of states. With that, the burdens are shared, the struggles a little less lonely and sins understood, maybe even forgiven? It is part of their talent that exceeds writing and performing music, with the honesty they convey as their strongest asset, Seether have an incredible ability, shared by only a few, to make the crumbling world of one a little easier to breathe in and, dare we say, being disturbed a little more comforting. --- metalwani.com
