Seventh Wonder was formed in 2000 by bass player Andreas Blomqvist, guitarist Johan Liefvendahl and drummer Johnny Sandin after their previous band fell apart. The music turned towards the progressive side of metal and as the band was joined by keyboard player Andreas “Kyrt” Söderin late 2000, the new sound was cemented further.
Two demos were recorded (2001 & 2003) and the latter caught the attention of label Lion Music who signed the band in 2004. This collaboration spawned the first release of Seventh Wonder and ‘ Become ’ saw the light of day in June 2005.
Become was well received by the press and top scores were given everywhere. However, the band and singer Andi decided to part ways shortly after the recording process had ended and once more the search for a singer started once again… The brilliant Tommy Karevik (ex: Vindictiv) was spotted and he joined the band in 2005, actually prior to the release of Become .
The next album entitled ‘ Waiting In The Wings ’ was recorded in 2006 and was mixed and mastered by legendary Tommy Hansen. This being a huge leap forward in song complexity and maturity and received outstanding reviews all over the world.
Mercy Falls is yet another step towards even more intricate and complex musical structures, but always maintaining that strong sense of melody which we have come to expect from the band. Mercy Falls is a full-blown concept album which brings yet another dimension into the music with countless details for fans to dive into. Mercy Falls sees Seventh Wonder going faster, heavier, softer, happier, angrier and simply larger than ever before!
