Seven Tears biography
SEVEN TEARS were formed by Jonathan Carlemar and Fredrik Lager initially known as DEMONSLAVE, they were both thirteen years old and their main influences at the time were HELLOWEEN and HAMMERFALL. The bands first line-up consisted of Jonathan Carlemar (guitar), Fredrik Lager (vocals), Niklas Lindahl (bass) and Richard Harbrect (drums). Jonathan and Fredrik continued to write power metal songs and they started to gain some recognition when they brought in a female vocalist Elin Johansson. Fredrik then assumed the bass and they brought in Michael Sjöö (drums) and Martin Rydlund (keyboards). With this line-up they changed their name to ATLANTICA and released their first self titled demo in October of 2005. After the release of the demo, the band saw another line-up change replacing Martin Rydlund with Kristofer von Wachenfeldt and Elin Johansson left the band. They started to work on some new songs which changed their musical direction and the band changed their name to SEVEN TEARS. Singer Zoran Djorem joined the band and they released the demo "The Story Unfolds" in November of 2006.

In February of 2007, they've been signed to Frontier Records and have released their debut album "In Every Frozen Tear" in December.

WHY THIS BAND IS IN THE ARCHIVES:

Review by b_olariu

3 stars Seven Tears is a young progressive metal band from Sweden releasing so far a single album in 2007 at Frontiers records named In every frozen tear. The music is ok, in places even great, but I'm not a big fan of this kind of aproach, they are more towards melodic side, ok they have some more edgy parts, but overall something is missing. The voice of Zoran Djorem is ok, fits very well in this context, the instrumenta passages are ok, in some parts like opening track just great, where theguitar riffs goes hand in hand with the keybords, As I said they rely more on compositions then on skills, but the compositions suffers of great ideas, they play corect and with energy , but the overall ideas are not fantastic. Good musicianship, they remind me of Sphere of souls from Holland for ex. So, a good debute but far from being something realy exciting, still pleasent from time to time to be heared. 3 stars is best I can give.

Review by Conor Fynes

2 stars 'In Every Frozen Tear' - Seven Tears (4/10)

Hailing from Sweden, Seven Tears is a talented young act that released a single album several years back. While the genre of progressive metal is generally considered a scene that caters only to extremely technical instrumentation and focuses on blowing the competition away through musical firepower, Seven Tears seems to trail off the beaten path by centering their act around something different entirely; the sense of melody.

Taking the particular blend of progressive rock and metal that was pioneered by Dream Theater and adding a hefty dose of melodic AOR, Seven Tears sounds more reminiscent of arena fillers like Journey and Foreigner than their metal contemporaries. While I have always been of the belief that all too many prog rock artists overlook melody (a central factor for good, moving music) Seven Tears rarely crosses the boundary into the realm of really fantastic music, and even when they do, it is most often in short lived spurts.

Despite being evidently talented (the band was in their teens at the time of recording,) they seem to fall into the rut of generic melodic rock/metal more often than not. It may just be a matter of personal taste (I have never found the style of arena oriented rock to be of much interest) but much of the music here feels uninspired. While the musicians (particularly the strong vocal work of Zoran Djorem) do well to compliment the music, the songwriting is tired and predictable, with a few refreshing exceptions.

The opener 'Twist Of Fate' is one such exception to the string of mediocrity here. In fact, the first few tracks are incredibly promising, giving strong melodies atop some proggy instrumental work. By the time the fourth and fifth tracks roll by however, it's impossible not to notice that the flow of the album is slowing down and relying more and more on the quality of the chorus; making the rest of the songs feel like a mildly irritating intermission between brief spurts of energy. In any case, the album picks up again with the excellent song 'The Story Unfolds' which while short-lived, gives the second half of the album a sense of partial (albeit unrealized) fulfillment.

While there is 'nothing new under the sun' here indeed, Seven Tears shows that while not necessarily being the most consistent songwriters, have musical chops and skill. Excellent (although possibly overdone) production and a few great moments make this an album thats worth giving a few listens to. However, it is unlikely worth the purchase, due to the fact that the same overused tricks can only be played so many times before losing interest entirely.

Review by Ovidiu

3 stars A young and nice Swedish band with a very promissing potential for a debut album,this is what SEVEN TEARS are offeing on this interesting album!Nothing new or spectacular under the sun,it's prog metal with some AOR infrluences,but wery well done,professional and mature!What makes the difference is the marvelous voice of ZORAN DJOREM,which fits perfectly well with the music!Excellent combinations and duels between guitar and keyboards,efficiend double pedal drumming tempo,and some good guitar solos-this are the ingredients for an inspired prog metal album!Attractive is the mixture between the classical nordic melodic metal and the usual progressive ingredients -virtuosity and good balance between the midtempo rhythms and the calm ones!The general mood of the album is a pretty calm one,byt there are plenty moments of musical wizzardry and great imagination!Definitelly SEVEN TEARS are trying to bring something original in their music,not to be DREAM THEATER clones,and the melodic aspect is essential!The first try was a successful one,we wait the second shot,and I am sure that many pleasant surprises ,good surprises will come from this talented and ambitious band from Sweden! 3.5 deserved STARS for a good,far superior to other prog metal debuts!
