Background
Should it be Seven Tears released on Fron-Tears? Pretty young band this, with a nod to the likes of Cloudscape and Platitude, but with more of an AOR leaning I would say. Keyboardist 'Wachen' is also a member of said band Platitude, while drummer Mike 'Diamond' Sjoo is a member of Fantasy Child which also features Wachen. Busy boys indeed. Seven Tears is the recent incarnation of the band Atlantica, which featured different membership during earlier times. By Feb 2007, this version of the band had signed a deal with Frontiers, and complete with a name change, went into the studio to record this album which hit the market in Dec 2007.


The Songs
According to their bio, Seven Tears describe themselves as 'Evergrey meets Journey'. Err, that's what they might say, but we hear more than just those two. One thing that is notable, is the very heavy rhythm section, and good production too. The instrumentation is great, the only thing which needs refining is the vocal. Don't get me wrong, Zoran Djorem is a very good singer, but this type of music requires finesse, power and consistent delivery. In time, he will find it, considering this is his first full length album. 'Faded Memory' has difficulty deciding what to be. A prog metal belter or a powerful AOR track. You choose. 'Hollow Ground' has a lot in common with Platitude, the hard driving sound with constant guitar and keyboard runs in attendance certainly works for me. 'All Alone' is probably the most AOR track on offer here. A semi-ballad, its not wimpy by any means, and cuts a crisp figure. 'Prayer For The Dying' opens out with the rhythm section on slam dunk duty, but by verse time we've gone into dark and moody mode.. Where are the Egyptians? Elsewhere, 'Dreams Of Insanity' is another powerful track, with a tempo surge on the bridge and solo sections. Again, that big booming drum sound stands out a mile. The mid-section bridge change opens up all sorts of melodic possibilities.. all chosen tastefully by the band.


In Summary
Hard to know what the status is with these bands nowadays. Are they proper working bands ready to hit the road and the stage or are they stuck permanently in a studio somewhere? Also, the multiple band membership thing confuses many punters, unsure whether a band like this is a oncer, or a steady gig with future albums on the way. My guess is Seven Tears is somewhere in the middle. Newbies they might be, but on the strength of this, they might be ready to climb the ladder if given half an opportunity. At twelve tracks it's a bit long - keep it to ten next time chaps! For melodic rockers, Seven Tears are definitely worth taking a punt on!
