7 Horns 7 Eyes – Throes Of Absolution

The most exciting part about watching a trend in metal is keeping an eye on the peripherals --- watching out for the bands that are tangentially related to it, be it by sound or image, but don’t quite fit the pre-defined mould. It’s pretty much a rule of thumb by now that those are the bands that create the most interesting and varied music. Take 7 Horns 7 Eyes, for example. You’d be hard pushed to deny that their off-kilter riffs and movements weren’t inspired by the almighty, chug-titans Meshuggah, but unlike the masses who kneel at that altar and declare all others to be false gods, 7H7E take great pride in lifting other influences from all around the progressive metal world.
