Having featured a review of their EP Convalescence a few months ago (Found here) Metal Junkie were already big fans of 7 Horns 7 Eyes and we were expecting a lot from this debut album. Thankfully they didn’t let us down and released an absolute knockout of an album.
We previously stated on our review of their EP “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” and Throes of Absolution really brings this into a reality. Mixing all the above into one brutal and terrifying monster and really bringing all the influences to the fore whilst simultaneously forging their own unforgettable sound.
Featuring two songs from the previously mentioned EP, “The Winnowing and Vindicator” throes of absolution features 7 new tracks for listeners to get their head around. Final track regeneration is an opus to the progressiveness of Opeth, whereas “Delusions” goes into the death metal and black metal territories. This is an album that is full off little surprises”
There is not a single bad thing I can say about this album, it is definitely one of the best new albums I have heard, and is a finely formed debut album that goes beyond their years.
I heartily recommend this album to anyone who loves metal as a whole.
