ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seventh Wonder, rapidly gaining a reputation as one of Europe’s elite progressive metal outfits delivers their third and most ambitious album to date “Mercy Falls” on September 12th 2008 through Lion Music.

“Mercy Falls”, a concept album based on the fate of a small town, a family tragedy and the beast we refer to as human nature all set to the bands most ambitious and musically rich and vocally accomplished album to date.

“Mercy Falls” is much more diverse than previous Seventh Wonder albums, while staying true to the Seventh Wonder trademark sound of intricate musical segments and compositions loaded with melodies; there are new twists and turns, an even stronger band tightness from playing countless gigs since the release of their 2006 album “Waiting In The Wings” all of which is brought together by a super powerful production by the band and mix from the legendary Tommy Hansen and completed by visually stunning packaging from Carl-Andre Beckston.


BAND BIOGRAPHY
Seventh Wonder initial seeds were planted in 2000 when bass player Andreas Blomqvist, drummer Johnny Sandin and guitarist Johan Liefvendahl left the ashes of the band Mankind with no music to play nor a band name. Writing came natural and the trio automatically created music far more progressive than what had been the style of Mankind. The new style grew on the members who called themselves Neverland at that time. To adapt the band to the new music, a search for a competent keyboard player began with the slot being filled by Andreas Söderin. The band recorded a 4 track demo with hired vocalist Roman Karpovich before searching for a replacement singer which saw Andi Kravljaca join the ranks with whom the band recorded another demo which gained excellent reviews worldwide. Various labels were now interested with the band with Lion Music ultimately signing the band allowing them freedom of expression in their music.

Late 2004 saw the band record their debut album “Become” but tensions were arising between Andi and the rest of the band ultimately coming to a head days prior to the release of their debut. Fortunately the band found powerhouse vocalist Tommy Karevik whose soaring vocals and electric stage presence allowed the band to move forward with live shows before recording their 2nd album, the critically acclaimed “Waiting In The Wings” (mixed and mastered by Tommy Hansen) in August 2006. Seventh Wonder spent 2007 playing all over Europe with the likes of Jorn Lande, Pagan\'s Mind, Queensrÿche, Testament, Sun Caged and Redemption as well as writing the sequel to WITW. The new album titled MERCY FALLS will be released through Lion Music on September 12th 2008.

Excellent New Metal
This is a great prog metal album that I was introduced to by an online radio station recently. I don't think I could recommend these guys highly enough, or their last album, "Waiting in the Wings" as well as this one. They seem to have no bad songs or even fillers. The comparisons to Dream Theater are pretty close, but I think they're better because their songs are complex and multilayered/faceted, but without the excessive length. I never get the feeling they have to show off that way. And, the singer is superior too - one of the best out there. Is it any suprise they aren't American? Scandinavia is where all the great metal is nowadays!
