So, I know it’s stupid, but names sometimes keep me from taking certain bands seriously.
7 Horns 7 Eyes — until just recently — was one of those bands. I never gave them an honest shot because the name made my head hurt.
But I have to tell you, I downloaded their new album Throes of Absolution the other day, and holy shit, was I wrong about these dudes.
They’re progressive death metal and they’re maybe my new favorite band. They’ve convinced me to change my idiotic stance on band names, and while I know I am late to the party, I just had to write something to say I am glad to be at the party.
At the end of this post, there’s a trailer from their forthcoming LP, which hits stores April 24
The album even features a guest appearance by Jeff Loomis, formerly of Nevermore.
Listen to this, and try to tell me you’re not down to hear this record. Just try.
