Seventh Dimension biography
SEVENTH DIMENSION is a Swedish progressive metal act from Stockholm. Formed in 2009 by the guitarist Luca Delle FAVE, bass player Rikard WALLSTRÖM and drummer Marcus THORÉN, the trio experimented a lot by playing covers, writing music while searching for a keyboard player and a lead vocalist. In late 2010 they finally found Erik BAUER and Nico LAURITSEN on keyboards and lead vocals respectively.

The lineup was completed and 2011 saw the band entering the studio for the first time to record demos for their debut album. "Circle Of Life" got recorded during the summer/autumn of 2012 with 2 singles released for free on YouTube and as digital downloads. The debut album itself was produced by Luca Delle FAVE, mixed & mastered by Anthony BERLIN and was released on January 15th, 2013.

The debut album featured sounds that were clearly inspired by the progressive rock/metal scene and contained quite a few twists and turns along the way! From the delicate atmospheric rock ballads to heavier metal compositions and everything in between can be found over the span of the record's 70+ minutes of playing time. The songs often contains stories, with characters going through different experiences, reflections on visions, dreams or containing messages about life, emotions, politics, philosophies, human characteristics and much more.

Seventh Dimension Progressive Metal

Review by Progrussia

3 stars I've taken a liking to this young band. They work hard. Two 75-minute albums in 3 years. I've read them described as "prog metal for the masses" on a Russian site, and thought well that's not fair. Derivative of the Dream Theater/Symphony X self-indulgent neoclassical/power/melodic/gothic metal mix, sure, but the songwriting is there (including a surprisingly coherent 45-minite suite already on their first album), and even fresh in its back to the classics, fanboy kind of sense.

What we have here on Recognition is more of the same, 8-10 minute songs, maybe a bit rougher in places, but pretty similar sound to Circle of Life. If you must choose, I'd pick the first one for its catchier melodies, but in reality both could satisfy your Dream Theater-wannabe hunger.

Review by Progrussia

4 stars An impressive debut, but not without growing pains.

The band on their web page describe their influences as Dream Theater, Symphony X, Kamelot, Seventh Wonder and a few others (I would add Stratovarius to that). And this is pretty much what you get - an accessable mix of prog, melodic, symphonic and gothic metal. Without it coalescing into something original. But I attribute that to their early stage of development as a band. I have much hope because the mastermind - guitarist Luca dele Fave - is obviously a classically trained and talented composer. This is especially evident in the 45 minute epic. Even though it consists of 8 distinct parts, it feels cohesive (unlike many other similar epic attempts). Conceptually, it describes a persons life as he moves thru joy of birth, anger of youth (exacerbated by certain tragic events), self discovery and reflection. However, I do feel the concept is better realized thru music rather than singing (good, but not great) and lyrics, that are very amateurish - a problem, I guess, of many none-native English language bands.

Overall, a very worthy listen. Some snobs may scoff at its relative cliche -edness, and casual metal fans may find it boring, but if you just enjoy good anthemic prog music, I recommend.

Thanks to Rune2000 for the artist addition.
