Combine sustained aggressiveness, strong guitar arrangements, powerful rhymes, vocal precision, and raw intensity… that’s the sound delivered by 24Seven.
Nominated for best metal song, 2006 J.P.F awards Santa Ana California and winner of the “Budweiser La Relève" contest in April 2005, the band was awarded a $15,000 recording contract and is now working on producing their third album. That year, they played for the Box Rock tour, a professional provincial boxing event and participated in the Quebec City CHOI Radio X Liberty Tour . Together since 2001, the band of four young musicians from Quebec, Canada is on a creative roll and has been steadily growing in popularity. A year after they started out, their first recorded compilation of original material, a six-track demo entitled “Break Me”, sold over 500 copies in a few short weeks. It thus came as no surprise when 24Seven was voted “best band” by the audience at their hometown’s youth festival in the summer of 2002.

While some pieces are definitely on the heavy side, others are surprisingly accessible. A genuine and versatile creation, “Not Like You” is also an expression of the band’s legitimate desire not to be a copy of others.

Skillful vocals combining precision, melody and aggression blend perfectly with fiery guitar rifs and crazy bass slap, topped off with powerful percussion and double bass drum. Watching 24Seven in concert is an experience that leaves no one indifferent.
Now that they have captured local attention, playing in various locations and opening up for such provincially, nationally, and internationally well known bands as Guttermouth (California), Lofofora(France), Grimskunk, Quo Vadis, Anonymous, Ghoulunatics, and Groovy Aardvark, 24Seven is recognized as one of the most popular bands of the genre in their area and is ready to emerge from the underground. While continuously working on new material, they are looking for ways to connect with a wider audience and show the world they are prepared to take their rightful place on the evolving meta
