Formed by three brothers -- Pete, Sam and Joe Loeffler -- outside of Chicago in 1994, Chevelle began making noise right off the bat. Their debut album Point # 1 was produced by Steve Albini, and it earned them a spot headlining Ozzfest that same year. Their second and third albums, Wonder What's Next (2002) and This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) (2004), both yielded hits on MTV. Vena Sera came out in 2007. The band plays the sort of heavy rock with strong melodies such groups as Trapt and Creed are known for. Although lyrically Chevelle remain focused on positivity and soul-searching, they have since distanced themselves from a Christian rock categorization they had been labeled with early on in their career. In May of 2007, their entire trailer of equipment was stolen while touring Texas, resulting in the immediate but temporary cancellation of the tour.

Striking That Familiar Chord
Puddle Of Mudd
Runtime: 60 minPuddle Of Mudd rose from the ashes of alternative metal with the release of their debut album Come Clean in 2001. Having been one of the first acts signed and released by Limp Bizkit front man Fred Dursts label, Flawless Records, Come Clean quickly went multi-platinum and spawned the hit singles Control, Blurry and She Hates Me. Although often grouped with the likes of Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park, Puddle Of Mudds sound is a lot closer to the likes of Nirvana and more traditional hard rock. This was further reinforced by the release of their second album Life On Display in 2003. Striking That Familiar Cord was recorded in the intimate settings of the famous Key Club in Los Angeles, California, capturing the band at their blistering best and featuring the hits Control, Blurry, She Hates Me and Away From Me.
Somewhere in the Stratosphere: Anything and Everything Live in Kansas (Acoustic)
Runtime: 1 hr 58 minCapturing live sets from their “Carnival of Madness” and “Anything and Everything” tours, Somewhere in the Stratosphere finds Shinedown showing fans a different side of themselves. While the two live shows on this two-disc set share many of the same songs, the band treats their fans to a pair of very different performances. On the first disc, the band delivers a fairly straight-ahead performance, crushing the audience with the driving rock they’ve made a name for themselves with over the last decade. The real treat, however, comes on disc two. Recorded during the Kansas City stop of their “Anything and Everything” tour, the Florida post-grungers peel away the layers of amps, distortion, and rock & roll bombast, instead delivering an acoustic set that shows fans a more stripped-down version of the band. Though the arrangements don’t differ that drastically, the acoustic version really allows singer Brent Smith’s vocals to shine as they soar over top of the mix without having to fight with the rest of the band’s supercharged sound for supremacy. By pairing a traditional live set with something that’s more of a departure, Shinedown have created a compilation that gives fans a lot to sink their teeth into, making Somewhere in the Stratosphere an easy recommendation for anyone who loves the band and is looking to see them try to expand their sound in new directions.

Billboard hailed the record as an intense, taut piece of work, Alternative Press called the group masters of ass-kicking, adding, In a better America, Stone Sour would be the face of American rock, and Revolver magazine gave the disc four stars and praised the quintet for demonstrating a dynamic range equaled by few of their peers.
