|4||Rock ist krieg|
Seven That Spells spells CROATIVITY. Zagreb's heavy sons drill Krautrock a new arsehole with lofty, wailing, epic thunder hymns to the new cosmos. "Rock Is Krieg" says it all, especially coming from a place blackened by real war in recent times. The beauty of STS's take on prog is that it is actually progressive, in the sense that their extended, rumbling anthems express both aggression and spirituality. They translate the old Teutonic ways into a stoner/doomy metallic patois that should put the likes of Sunn 0))) and Boris on notice. “Death & Rebirth” shifts from exploding roar into swirling overdrive with the precision of a European race engine. When the music growls, it is frightening. And when the music purrs, it sounds like an astral sphinx sleeping with one third-eye open. This is the true spirit of Kraut carried forward into the new rage.
Dusty Brainbangers Ball
Seven That Spells was formed by Niko Potočnjak in 2003.
The band was initially formed as a power trio, and over the years more than 60 musicians contributed to live performances and recordings. In 2009, bassist Jeremy White joined the band and has since become its second core member.
The format has since returned to its original power trio format, and the sound has evolved to a more modern, aggressive psychedelic sound incorporating polymetrics and occasional Viking funeral rites.
The band has gained an underground following and enjoyed some great events in recent years - a tour of Japan in 2008, a gig at the Roadburn Festival in 2009 and at Duna Jam festival in 2010.
Some of many collaborations have involved figures the likes of Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple, Albin Julius of Der Blutharsch, and other international musicians.
STS will continue to blow minds and play live shows as frequently as possible.
All of the current members reside in Zagreb, Croatia.
