Synopsis

Product Description
"I think it's important to write what you know," says David Cook, the voice behind Axium. "Everybody has inner demons in the closet. I just confront these inner demons in a public forum.

Inspired by love, loss, and everything in between, Cook and his band mates have built a formidable fan base through two years of high-octane performances.

Capturing the energy of Axium's live shows, the group's newest album Blindsided balances delicacy and aggression in equal measure. Stirred by honest antagonism < Feed Your Ego, Clean Break > and emotional sub currents < Just In Case, Testament >the songs on Blindsided seek a deeper resonance to obvious realities.

Of special note is "Truth Is A Gun," based on the ideal that honesty can, and sometimes does, force you to leave your comfort zone. My mindset in writing Truth was to convey my regret for whatever dishonesty I had committed in life and how it had hurt those around me. Cook says of Blindsided s first single. The lyrics, however, contradict that idea. The lyrics seem to suggest that I am condemning others for lying, when in fact I m condemning myself.

Blindsided emphasizes raw, edgy guitars laced with memorable hooks--the signature approach which has fueled Axium since its inception.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is early and raw David Cook. His voice is more gravely than it is now - but that's okay. His band was good and I heard that he brought a couple of people in the old band with him to his new band. I like the CD."
