Seven Nines and Tens

Album Overview

  • The latest by Seven Nines & Tens takes their Post-metal journey to new heights with this release

  • Band logo for this album was designed the one and only Conrad Keely

  • Previous albums were basically instrumental Post-rock with some math rock influences

  • With the addition of all three members providing vocals for this album, it's a game changer for the band

  • The abundance of vocals are very lofty and clean with nice harmonies. We hear moments of Kings X's Ty Tabor meets Jerry Cantrell

  • Consistency is key, no matter how heavy or soft the album gets, the vocals never change their course.

  • There seems to be a more progressive metal feel to this album than previous ones, plus the production sounds crisper as well

  • The percussion shines and is very powerful

  • Over Opiated In A Forest Of Whispering Speakers is a somewhat calming album despite its heaviness. The album is so atmospheric and majestic at times

Standout Track(s)

Midnight Marauders

What a terrific blend of heavy Post-rock and metal. The drumming is swift and heavy, the bass is freeform Intronaut-like with progressive guitars and uplifting vocals.

 

Brew Pairing

Wave of the Future by Societe Brewing in California. This 7.2 IPA is lush with aromas of melon and pine with a citrusy flavor. A great and refreshing pairing with this album.
