. Front man and lead vocalist Scott Stapp and guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips completed the initial lineup. They bands struggled in the early years playing at underground performances and gigs. They later resorted to the idea of an independent release and hence created the label Blue Collar Records. Under this umbrella, Creed
engaged itself in simple hearty lyrical ventures and creating commercially appealing rock inclined grunge music. The resultant songs went to the debut self release My Own Prison
This 1997 studio effort by Creed
was eventually re-mastered and re-released under the label Wind-Up Records. My Own Prison
’s original and remix versions vividly advocated Creed’
s stance. It was purely blue-collar rock carrying hues all grungy and baggy. Creed
was initially regarded as a mock baritone of Eddie Veddar’s and Chris Cornell’s vocals carrying an overall traditionalist grungy look, feel and sound. However the band excelled in combining high quality vocals, sweeping lyrics and authentic compositions together. The underlying angst of rock was there, all very clear.
was delivering a multidimensional monotone that was completely sweeping. The band became a hot favorite of million rock lovers in a very short span of time. While Scott Stapp’s deep vocals and Mark Tremonti’s guitar won a clan of Creed
lovers; their soft verses in their signature loud chorus wrapping made vivid artistic impressions in mainstream music. The album My Own Prison
was phenomenal as it capitalized on the never dying love for grunge and nostalgia of an era. Its popularity was immense and the album took a year to win an RIAA multi-platinum certification.
With a rather inspirational chords and tone and impressionist in the Post grunge movement, Creed
has consistently complied to the simplistic grunge sound. These distinct elements were present in Creed
’s next album Human Clay
(1999). A heavy wrap of music and emotional manifestation of life and love, the alum stirred huge waves with monster hits. The album became the sixtieth biggest selling albums of all times. These experimental directions lead them to further stardom where Creed
predominated as a hit grunge rock outfit in mainstream music. However, critics consistently remained skeptical of Creed
’s originality and underlying spiritual overtones.
’s support tour and the release of Weathered
(2001), marked the first breakup of the band. Although the album aced commercially it suffered versatility and freshness. The first compilation album by Creed
, the Greatest Hits
(2004) came out in the turbulent times. However, this compilation couldn’t streamline things and the band members parted ways to explore solo ventures. The second breakup kept the band apart for seven years. In 2008 the band reunited to work on their fourth album Full Circle
