7 Horns 7 Eyes Convalescence Review

If you throw Prog, Death Metal and a little bit of Black Metal all into a pot and stir, what you are left with is 7 Horns 7 Eyes. Having just released their EP Convalescence it’s a short but brutal listing experience.

Coming in at just under 15 minutes long with only 3 songs, it is an extremely short but extremely brutal EP. Opening song Vindicator is a statement of intent of what 7 Horns 7 Eye’s can bring to the table, then following on, the title track Convalescence is one of melody and tranquillity. This juxtaposition creates a rather unique listening experience

However it is the final track The Winnowing is the ultimate listening experience for 7 Horns 7 Eyes for me. It’s everything the band can bring to the table and more.  It combines melody and complete brutality extremely well and makes the listener just want to hear more.

This is definitely a band that I shall be keeping an eye on. The only problem with this EP is that it is to short, which with the music being so good, is a definite down point. I’m looking forward to the full length release.
