Denmarks finest Power Metal band begins a new chapter, with
the release of their 3rd album Symphony of Shadows! Spicing
up their sound with heavier, darker influences like Symphony X
and Adagio they still remember their roots in neo-classical and
classic Power Metal in the vein of Helloween and Stratovarius.
The result is strong, catchy melodies, high-end technical musicianship
and a massive, dark and rich sound, and the 9 tracks will
leave the listener gasping for air yet yearning for more!
Having played numerous gigs and festivals including the prestigious
CopenHell, blowing away audiences and critics alike, and
having shared stages with bands like Primal Fear and Freedom
Call, the band is a force to be reckoned with. In the words of
composer and guitarist Gabriel Tuxen: We wanted to make an
album that was FUN for us to play on stage, and one that will
entertain our fanbase as well as people who see us for the first
time. I think we succeeded, and more.
To enhance the darkness and heaviness of the album, Seven
Thorns worked with famed producer Tue Madsen. He turned out
to be the perfect partner to make the vision come alive, making
sure that every detail in the complex soundscapes stand out
clearly, still creating a wall of sound full of pummeling bassdrums,
heavy guitars and soaring solos that will satisfy even the
most demanding shred-fetishist.
Centered around the virtuoso talents of guitarist and main composer
Gabriel Tuxen and keyboard player Asger Nielsen, and
with the charismatic voice and persona Björn Asking handling
the vocals, the ambitious melodies and songs easily come alive.
The low end is kept tight and heavy by bassist Mads Molbaek
and everything is paced forward hard and fast by drummer and
band mastermind Lars Borup.
Its Power, its Heavy, its Dark: it is The SYMPHONY OF
