Mannheim Steamroller meets Daft Punk. 7th Heaven was released on November 7, 2008, and is a collection of dance music created by mixing synthetic and live elements. One fan described it as "Mannheim Steamroller goes to the club!" The song "Dead Mouse" is by far the most popular track of the album with the title track "7th Heaven" being the second most popular. It was obviously inspired by the group Mannheim Steamroller plus several dance bands including Daft Punk and Darude.
