When you add two parts of Sevendust (John Connolly, Vince Hornsby) with two parts Creed (Scott Phillips, Eric Friedman), you get the latest hard rock super group, Projected. The band will be releasing their debut album, "Human" on September 18 on Connolly’s own record label, Yaya Papu LLC. The album was produced by Connolly along with Elvis Baskette (Alter Bridge, Puddle of Mudd).
After a short instrumental introduction, the music bursts out of the gate with “Hello.” The vocals of John Connolly are strong and match the intensity of the music perfectly. The album’s first single, “Watch It Burn”shows off the elements that each band member brings to the group, the hard edge of Sevendust and the heavy mainstream rock of Creed. The full force of the band is finally heard (and felt) in the song “Bring You Back,” which features a guest appearance from Sevendust singer Lajon Witherspoon. The album slows down slightly with “12804,” but comes back strong with the grind of “The Crown,”before closing with the most aggressive song on the album, “Breaking Me.”
