Drenched in stage smoke and low, colored stage lighting, Seether created an atmosphere perfectly suited to their music’s style and vibe – ripping, heavy metal-inspired grunge. This is music that penetrates the listener. While it is good out of the studio, it is even better live. The set list included “Gasoline,” “Rise Above This,” and “Remedy.” Shaun Morgan, our host for the festival, matched his reputation for vocals saturated with angst and growl. Flanked by bassist, Dale Stewart, and drummer, John Humphrey, and joined by Brian Wickmann on guitar, Seether’s performance is a slow ride of melodic, driven music that never shifts course or fails to grab the listener by the throat. This was a great performance.
