Editorial Reviews

Seventh Wonder is a fantastic new Swedish young and very talented progressive metal act in the vein of Dream Theater that will turn a lot of heads around. Excellent musicianship and mature song writing are the trademarks of this fine release. Artwork deluxe by Carl-Andre' Beckson.

Swedish melodic progressive metal band Seventh Wonder released their debut album, Become, in 2005, and while the CD was a good effort, especially for a first album, it didn't get the attention of many fans. It wasn't until their second album Waiting in the Wings came out that people began to take notice of this great band, as that album hints at their tremendous potential and what these guys are truly capable of.

Become is in many ways a good album, but it does lack in production at times. The lack of consistency is quite apparent, given some truly uplifting cuts are side by side with less than stellar pieces which could have been further developed. Primarily driven by guitarist Johan Liefvendahl, keyboardist Andreas Soderin, and bassist Andreas Blomqvist, Seventh Wonder writes songs that are equal parts prog, neoclassical, and melodic metal. The album opener "Day by Day", also the very first song they ever wrote five years before the release of this disc, is a strongly developed cut, centred around classically themed guitar arpeggios, smooth keyboards, and powerful vocals. Vocalist Andi Kravljaca's delivery is in a similar mould to Goran Edman and Michael Eriksen, and he is a very fitting element to this album. However, shortly after the recording of this album, he was replaced by current singer Tommy Karevik, also a great singer and one of the factors why their sophomore album is such a success.

Highlights of this debut include the terrific guitar and keyboard duel of "Like Him", a midtempo song featuring a crystal clear guitar solo and solid drum sound. This is no surprise considering the engineering was done by none other than Daniel Flores, among Sweden's most hardworking drummers and sound engineers.

These guys can play and sing, but this is NOT a progressive metal album. Though described as prog metal several places on the internet, the album is closer to Air Supply or Journey than metal of any sort. If you like a bright, somewhat tinny sound, and mix emphasis on the vocals, you might like this a lot. The talent is there, but only a few cuts (late in the album) try for a prog metal approach, and those fall short. A boomer who remembers the old, prog band Starcastle would enjoy this band- it sounds SO early 80's. If you are looking for pro metal (with the real emphasis on a European prog sound) try the Polish band Riverside. If you like lighter music, this may be your cup of tea.

Having downloaded this on a Saturday, I listened to the whole entire album from beginning to end during my Monday moring commute to work. Man oh man, I have to say that no other album thus far has ever made me feel so strong and enlightened on a Monday moring as this one!

Every track is rich, powerful and up-lifting, displaying tremendous musicianship on every layer. Highly recommended if you are a fan of groups like Symphony X or Stratovarius, and if you have what might be called a soul, and an appreciation of true art. This is just an overall awesome album that shows contemporary progressive metal at its finest, and is one of many prime examples of how melodic metal can actually be.

Please turn off the radio, and stop watching that brainwashing MTV junk. Don't let the media do your thinking for you. Open up your mind to great music like this, and give praise where it is due. This is REAL music.

After stumbling upon this band via a popular video site, I felt I needed get on Amazon to pick up the album right away. Was I ever in for a treat. I've had this disc rotating in my CD player since the day it arrived. Great music for: Progressive music lovers, Heavy Metal music lovers, musicians looking for inspiration and anyone who has curiosity in expanding their musical interests. A real Gem.
