ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Metal Temple:
The energy, the fat tasty sound of the electric axe, the dual guitar battle with the keyboards solo interaction in the great RISING FORCE’s tradition (“Revelation” / ”Justice”), the rhythm section’s tight playing, the originality of some song structures, the intense solo selections or the shredding parts in SEVEN THORNS are notable and quite prominent
I think that SEVEN THORNS’s new release is an Huge giant step forward, epic, exultant and fascinating but also demanding for the listener and finally rewarding… Easily recommended, and as they said : “Metal is your Destiny”

Skullbanger:

So how does Seven Thorns do as a power metal band? Well if you like power metal they hit everything perfectly. They have the double bass drums, the guitar virtuoso and a singer that has a wide range but not one that drinks helium for vocal training. If you hate power metal then Seven Thorn hits everything perfectly as well, they have the double bass drums, the guitar virtuoso and a singer that has a wide range but not one that drinks helium for vocal training.

There are several songs on this album that I thought were very strong. One of which is ‘Queen of Swords’ which has a great mid tempo chorus and the other is ‘Redemption’ which has some great guitar and vocal work and is a great song overall.

If you are looking for some comparison to other power metal bands then Seven Thorns sound a bit to me like very early Nocturnal Rites and that is not a bad thing.

I think ‘II’ is a very solid power metal album and if you are a fan of the genre you are going to love it. I also think Seven Thorns is a very talented band that has a lot of promise but feel they can still break a bit more out of the mold of what people define as power metal. If they do this then they can really soar to new heights.

Also, they do a hell of a version of ABBA’s Mamma Mia.


Power Metal CL:

Seven Thorns is a big surprise in a style that few years ago was so saturated that led to the demise of many bands. In a time when power metal is having a new life with great records of the classic groupings of the style, the Danes are presented with an entertaining and round work, which contains everything that made the genre great. Recommended 100%.
