MASCOT Records


Behind that name SEVEN THE HARDWAY, which delivers here the first album, one can find very well-know musicians that really don't need long introductions.... Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai, Planet X, CAB), Virgil Donati (Planet X) et Mark Boals (Uli Jon Roth, Royal Hunt, Yngwie Malmsteen) - kinda dream-team made of real virtuosi ! OK, I was afraid to listen to an album that would turn too much into demonstration, without any particluar feeling, in a word, an album made of musical technique, like an album made for musicians only - something elitist.. but I realise I was wrong... This album is something really rich and very varied where Metal is mixed with Rock with intense atmospheres, sometimes really heavy but always energetic ! Alot of progressive touches thrown in of course but also some more hypnotic ones too... The balance between melody & power is just perfect, the result is really rich and interesting and should please all looking for innovative sounds & contemporary metal.. I'm not so pleased about the singing style, too much "modern metal" oriented in my opinion... but that's just a detail, the musical content is so good that it compensates this easily ! Try this - and have in mind with such musicians behind the bandname, it can't be bad at all !
