Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum Tracklist:
F*ck it if this was not written to attract new fans. Shaun's song writing on this album is for the die hard fans who have been here since the beginning. If you were listening back in 2002 then you can relate with the struggles of aging gracefully. Shaun puts his trademark mulit-octave vocals to the subject along with other life issues that simply don't seem to go away. Well done Seether.
This album rocks! This is back to the band I fell in love with early on years ago. If you loved their early material even before they were Seether and they were Saron Gas you will love this album. Great stuff. Some hard hitting, angry gritty stuff. Early Nirvana influenced them back in the day good to see this back in their music.
Thank you Shaun and crew! I dont write a lot of reviews (hardly any) but this album is so off the hook incredibly well done from the first song through the last song... It's one of those rare albums where every single song nails it! It's also written so well that people from differing opinions and perspectives can all get something meaningfull out of it. EACH AND EVERY SONG! WOW! I'm a lifelong musician/rocker (56) and I can FEEL all of these songs. You guys really brought me the exact music I needed to hear at this crazy time in the world. I would give this entire album 7 stars if I could. PS - Seen you guys a couple times at Aftershock - hope some day can see you there again!
When the best song on an album is the second track, the album as a whole is almost alway a disappointment. I love Seether and they have some great melo tracks on other albums like Nobody Praying for Me and Turn Around. The slower tracks on this album are missing those cooler rhythms.
One of Seether's best yet! I can't even describe how incredible this album is,I would give it 10 stars if I could!!! I pray Seether never breaks up,I can relate to them,the music,the lyrics,the vocals,just Outstanding!!!
I’ve always been a Seether fan from the beginning and this is another typical Seether album their hard songs are always amazing and the slower songs are hit or miss. For me Beg is the clear highlight on the album it’s what everyone wants from Seether. Dead and Done is also another good one and starts the album off with a bang.Dangerous the 1st single is a great all around song as well,it does a good job of having hard and soft mixed together to please everyone. A couple other honorable mentions from my 1st listen through were Can’t Go Wrong,Let it Go,Failure,Pride Before the Fall.
This one has got it all... hard core and soft and melodic as well, old style Seether and new contemporary Seether, a solid cohesive album with many potential hits. Personally I love “Beg”, “Dangerous”, “Wasteland” and “Written in Stone” as a representation of the range of this album, but the truth it that there aren’t any bad tracks- this album may just be the most solid album they’ve ever produced and that’s saying a lot.
Like many have pointed out, their last few albums seemed to be missing a lot of the raw emotion. These albums weren’t bad or anything, just didn’t really have much depth. This album is such a great return to what I think drew a lot of the fanbase to this band. Definitely give it a listen!
I mean Seether just puts out great music. They mix it up with various styles and they deliver what we are used to from them. Yhey continue to slightly tweak a very tight formula. Another solid album by these guys.
Just listened to the full album and am loving it all. Shauns voice and song writing at the finest. Great mix of rock anthems and jamming songs but my favorites are the melancholy Liar, Drift Away and Wasteland.
This record is fine from start to finish. For me personally I feel there are only a few highlights, it sounds like typical Seether. Which don't get me wrong isn't a bad thing, but the band rarely tries anything new. Huge fans will love it, since it is straight up Seether. However for me it is just too much of the same to get me excited. Awesome for those of you that like that, but with only a couple tracks like Dead And Gone and Beg, I just didn't really find anything new to love.
I absolutely love Dangerous! It’s got a little bit of the older riffs that we’ve always known them for mixed in with some new. I can’t even properly describe it, but I love it! Can’t wait for the whole album to be out.
After their last few albums I thought that my Seether days were over... until now. If the first 3 songs are any indication of the rest of the album then watch out!! These songs are raw and aggressive. Love it!!!
The last album was so bland it seems like they wrote it in their sleep. I thought it may have a been a sign of their decline. But this song has the riffs and the power even if it’s a slow boil. Can’t wait for the rest.
Giving it a 1 Star right now because this song is kinda snoring but I love seether and hope the rest of the album is better. So many bands stinking up the music scene right now I’m hoping Seether doesn’t also
Perfection. This is the only word to describe Seether’s music. There is always the haters out there but Shaun and the band have aged and matured in such an amazing way, it’s like fine wine and cheese. I love how in a sense they have in a way tied this album and the Poison the Parish together. The previous being about the corruption of the church and now this album! Shaun you and the gang are geniuses and are true artists! You guys have helped me through a lot of dark times in my life and will always be your loyal fan!!! 🙌🏻😎🤘🏻☠️🙌🏻
