ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heavy music for people that are tired of heavy music - Thats what people are saying about chapter seven. Ranging from pained screams to melodic vocals, coupled with assaulting, yet very energetic, driving riffs, the six piece Chicago based band is anything but the typical metal fare. Started in the summer of 2000 chapter seven was formed to be one of the most intense bands in the scene. Characterized by extremely energetic live shows and being known as a band with tremendous presence on stage, the band continues to captivate and move audiences without masks, makeup or gimmicks.

As one of the hardest working bands in the midwest, chapter seven has expanded their fan base by playing 50-60 shows a year, and has shared the stage with several National acts including Cold, 40 Below Summer, Every New Day, Apartment 26, 40 Grit, Primer 55, Dope, E Town Concrete, Otep, The Heavils, Lenon, and Society one to name a few.

In March of 2003, after a releasing a series of samplers chapter seven independently released their debut full length, which despite any formal distribution sold 1,000 copies in only 8 months, and garnered them a slew of regional press and radio play.

After a 4 month hiatus, chapter seven is back with a new bass player, a more focused attitude, and a new full length album in the works. With everything in place, chapter seven now intends to take their career to the next level by consistently continuing to write new material and support their CD through constant touring. chapter seven plans to turn heads and show the industry that they are ready for the next level. 2005 is chapter seven's year. And they plan to establish themselves as THE act to watch for in the very near future. This is one band you definitely do not want to miss..

A listen to their self-titled debut rips you through nine tracks...
Chapter 7 seems like one of those bands who you need to see live to fully appreciate. A listen to their self-titled debut rips you through nine tracks that scream and pound but leave you feeling as if you haven't thoroughly absorbed their power. That said, the album does its best to capture this highly energetic music and gives listeners a glimpse of what they can expect from what the band calls their "razor sharp set".
The album's major strength lies in its guitar work. Thunderous riffs pervade every song and set up the band's thick sound. While they definitely have a uniform, metal-based style, the guitars create unique melodies that keep each song interesting and intense rhythm parts that are the album's main driving force. This is especially apparent in the opening track, "LowGun". It begins with a rapid, roaming lead guitar line that draws the listener in before switching to a thicker, heavier chord progression that dominates the song and sets up the rest of the album's intensity.
While Chapter 7's guitars stay engagingly varied, the relatively unchanging vocal style may turn some people off from the band. The dual vocalists are extremely intense, filling the album with screams and growls and the occasional snarling melody that contribute to the overall heavy sound but fail to distinguish themselves enough between songs. While powerful, the vocals are so perpetually fierce that they begin to sound all too similar as the album goes on. The guitars are consequently called upon to create the distinctiveness of each song. This technique usually works, but the guitars would have a whole new range of possibilities if the vocals did more to define each track.
Despite the room for improvement in the vocals, this debut shows definite promise. The album's sheer energy forcefully shows listeners that Chapter 7 are serious about what they do and that there is a whole world beyond their recorded music. Hopefully the band will continue to develop their craft through their live shows and use that growth to eventually record an even more powerful followup.

I really don't have anything bad to say about this song
Review of "Flat Foot" from garageband.com -
Dude, the singer is GREAT! Or is that two different guys? Sweet. The music is upbeat and there's a great part in there where the guys are screwing with the listener's clock (starts at 1:31). I love stuff like that. There's great changes throughout the song, and it's got the perfect balance of groove and heaviness and unpredictability. I really don't have anything bad to say about this song - it is original, powerful, and actually kept my interest the whole way through.
