Creed - Weathered

A Sneak Peak...

On November 20, 2001, the album "Weathered" was released, "Creed"'s third album.

This album is the band's final chord, even though eight years later their last album "Full Circle" was released and the band officially disbanded in 2004.

This is the first album in which bassist Brian Marshall does not participate and the one who took on all the bass roles in the recordings was Mark Tremonti. In this album, you can easily feel from the opening section that the "Sawmill from Texas" decided to increase the power and use a double-chain saw and not a regular one, while on the other hand, you feel that Scott Stapp is lowering one or more octaves here.

There are not many prominent or glittering songs on this album other than "Bullets" which presents Tremonti at his peak (one of the band's most powerful songs), "One Last Breath" and the powerful and moving "My Sacrifice".

Despite this, the album went straight to number one on the Billboard 200 and sold nearly a million copies in its first week of release.

All the songs on the album were written by Scott and the music was written by Tremonti.

If you will allow us to become Dr. Avshalom Kor for a moment and wonder about the album's cover and name. The name of the album means erosion by weather, i.e. bone, person, or anything else that is eroded by the weather. Reflecting the situation the band was in at the time of the album's release, the cracks began to widen and the end was near. But then we take a look at the album cover (which to tell the truth is one of the weirdest we've seen) and here we see the band members' faces engraved on a tree that looks like it's strong and formidable that is not eroded by the weather but rather, it seems to survive forever. Think about it...

Now put on a helmet and press play, the first song is just a ballistic missile !! Spotify, Apple Music
