Seventh Dimension: More than two hours of music!

Seventh Dimension - The Corrupted Lullaby

The Corrupted Lullaby is the new release from Seventh Dimension that will be released on November 1:st! The band is Stockholm based and plays prog metal, and the upcoming album is a double-CD concept album. The story is from start to finish accompanied by more than two hours of music. The album was mixed and mastered by Anthony Berlin and contains contributions from several voice actors as well as additional vocals provided by Linda Lundberg of the band Since Ever.

After the release of their debut Circle Of Life, followed by their second studio album Recognition, Seventh Dimension has this time around challenged themselves by going beyond the traditional musical experience. Influenced by bands such as Dream Theater, Opeth and Symphony X, Seventh Dimension has aimed for a concept album that offers more than 2 hours of storytelling progressive metal. To deviate from many other concept albums made, much focus is put on having the music accurately match the emotions of the characters that play a part in one big story.

The vision has been to have the hooking attributes of a really good novel, while having a soundtrack to every page you turn. The original story is filled with recognizable human emotions, mysterious solutions and twists that allows the direction of the music to visit sadness, joy, excitement and despair. While the album is presented in its entirety as a different form of musical medium, the songs are structured to also work well on their own. This provides an album for anybody passionate about music.

Seventh Dimension that was born in 2009 by founding members Luca Delle Fave (Guitars), Rikard Wallström (Bass) and Marcus Thorén (Drums) in the underground progressive scene of Stockholm, Sweden. The bands main influences was bands such as Dream Theater, Symphony X, Andromeda, Seventh Wonder, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Pain of Salvation, Kamelot among others.

The trio spent the first year rehearsing while searching for the two remaining spots to be filled. During this time, Luca Delle Fave also spent a lot of time writing music that would later end up on their first album, Circle of Life. In the latter half of 2010, Seventh Dimension became complete after Nico Lauritsen (Vocals) and Erik Bauer (Keyboards) joined the band. The band has consisted of the same members ever since. With such a stable band, it can easily cause the band to progress and really create exciting music.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (2369 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
