Seven Day Hunt biography
The history of Dutch band SEVEN DAY HUNT starts way back in 1999. At that time, following an 18 year long career with numerous live performances, 4 studio albums and a double live CD to their name, Egdon Heath ceased to exist. Out of the remnants of this band, Jaap Mulder (keyboards, vocals), Aldo Adema (guitars), Marcel Copini (bass) and Maurits Kalsbeek (vocals) decided to continue on, with Erik Koning (drums) joining their ranks. But ground to almost an halt when also Karlsbeek faced the situation where continued band activities couldn't be combined with his personal life.
But around 2007 things were set in motion again. The so far unnamed band project had slowly but steadily developed new material, and when they encountered singer/songwriter Han Uil this project soon developed into more of an active band unit. A name was needed, and Seven Day Hunt resonated well for all parties concerned. And in 2008 their first and so far only album was released: File This Dream.
Some time after this production the band fell apart. But in 2011 Erik Koning and Jaap Mulder decided to revive the band, initially alongside Marcel Copini and guitarist Marnix Wellinghoff. The future will have to reveal what this new constellation will manage to achieve.

File This Dream
Seven Day Hunt Neo-Prog

Review by mbzr48

4 stars Seven Day Hunt is a Dutch Progressive band that has arisen from the ashes of the disbanded Egdon Heath, featuring Han Uil on vocals, Aldo Adema on guitar, and Jaap Mulder on keyboards. The overall sound of their latest album, File This Dream will remind many listeners of The Fixx and Saga, but that is not to say they are copycats. Seven Day Hunt has most definitely put their own stamp on their music.

The highlight of the album is the opening track, "No Plaster Saint". The song begins with a bit of a stutter-step pacing, and gradually progresses to more up-tempo guitars and keys, allowing the band to showcase their musical and vocal talents to the fullest over the 14-minute span of the song.

The title track, "File This Dream", tends to drag a little too much at the beginning, it eventually builds up to some of the best guitar playing on the album by Adema. The 12-minute closer, "In Delusion", opens with a blistering guitar solo from Adema and builds until a sweet piano interlude sweeps in and carries the listener, again showing the diversity of songwriting and keeping one from getting too comfortable in the song. Vocalist Han Uil shows off his range exceedingly well on the track. File This Dream is definitely worth a listen, a 4 star for me

3 stars 3.5 really

Seven Day Hunt is an unknown band coming from Holland with one album issued since now named File this dream in 2008. The are formed from the ashes of another dutch band from the late '80 and 90 named Egdon Heath. When Egdon Heath disbanded in 1999 all members from that band minus the drumer formed Seven Day Hunt couple of years later around 2001. Well , what we have here is like a continuation of what Egdon Heath offerered 20 years ago around the Killing silence era. An eclactic side of neo prog with some memorable arrangements some solid musicianship , a good voice all melted with sensitive instrumental passages. The best pieces to me is the opening powerful and colorful track No Plaster Saint - now this is a killer tune , has lots of great parts where the guitars and keyboards and the vocal lines aswell are superb. What is in the middle of the album, I mean the next 2 pieces are only ok, the title track is good and then from track 5 beggins with another great pieces where all works very well and smooth. All in all a fairly decent to great relase by this unknown band, and definatly they need a far more exposure.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
