Interview with Seven7’s Nicholas Meier (lead guitarist)

1. “The Follower” had bits and pieces of famous classical pieces in it that would later build up to the actual metal, what inspired you guys to implement that into your music? Well we all love classical music and on each of our albums we took a part of a famous classical piece and turned it heavy. On our first album Try Something Different we used part of the Bolero from Ravel and made a song called “Scream of the Bolero”. On our second album Under Eye we used part of “Aase’s Death” from Edward Grieg “Peer Gynt”, and on … Continue reading Interview with Seven7’s Nicholas Meier (lead guitarist)

Top 25 Albums of 2014

Just a quick disclaimer before you go down below to judge my favorites of last year: all these albums are albums that I’ve reviewed on here and they came out in 2014 of course. Now this list was made completely independently by me without any influence in the rankings other than how often I listen to the albums, and how high of quality I found them to be. No one paid me, asked me to put some bands at some places, or did any other sort of persuading. This was made at breakfast while looking through the 200+ reviews I’ve … Continue reading Top 25 Albums of 2014

Honorable Mentions of 2014

It’s New Years Eve here in America and unlike all the other metal sites, blogs, zines, etc. out there I haven’t released my top favorite albums of the year.

But today I am just announcing my Honorable Mentions of the year which are the albums that were qualified for the Top 25 list but didn’t quite meet the criteria. I have 6 Honorable … Continue reading Honorable Mentions of 2014
