Seven - Breaking The Chains
SEVEN are a scrappy Swedish posse that posses the uncanny destiny to try and revive and update the low income underbelly of the NWoBHM, bands like SAMSON, WITCHFYNDE, GRIM REAPER and SAVAGE, who were undeniably pure of heart in their respective corners of the genre. Not very fast or modern in this day and age, but very cool all the same.

What burns out of the speakers is an eccentric English Hard Rock/Metal, courting AOR, True Metal, and minor Speed Metal. This results in a warm and communicative, yet truly axe-heavy slab of Biker Metal with some devastatingly loud and edgy guitar solos, worthy of the influences it has put on its back.

Only one minor complaint is that the vocalist is up front in the mix and his euro-accent distracts from the dirty beer and nuts melodies enclosed. This is the "get plastered at the bar" Metal-record of the year.
