Judging by reviews so far, Seven Sins is definitely our 'if Carlsberg recorded albums' release but, contrary to popular belief, 'Special Brew', the 10th song on the album, is not a tribute to their famously strong lager! It instead refers to a particularly potent concoction, one of Dr Dealer's Seven Sins potions, but the song isn't as much about the Dr's wonder mixture as it is about those who make it for him and those who crave it so much...and why!! All is revealed in todays video.
I highly recommend this Album and as much as I hate giving albums a star rating, if I was asked to, I'd definately give it a five star rating as for me, this is the best Metal Album I've heard for a long while. The band have got a lot to deliver on the next chapter!!!

Day 9 and D Day is getting closer...Dr Dealer Day that is! August 3rd is just around the corner and if you're trapped in a world of mundanity and fed up that Game Of Thrones is finished for another season and want a new adventure, grab a copy of Seven Sins and join the Emporium as it's carnival wagons and interesting characters travel through one adventure after another searching for 'Abandoned Souls'. You maybe feel a little abandoned yourself...fear not...Dr Dealer will get to you...eventually!
Dark subject matter abounds over classic metal riffs and if that sounds like your bag of studded denim jackets then Stormzone have constructed something you might just love.

Day 8 and an insight with today's video into what happens after Dr Dealer, Bathsheba and the rest of our protagonist's gifted misfits successfully rescue an imprisoned person in need of specialised treatment that the Dr can't give while out on the road. In a previous song, 'I Know Your Pain', the lyrics begin "Where I've just come from, you'll never know", but sometimes in extreme cases the leader of the traveling Emporium just has to make his way back to base where he has the ability, if necessary, to 'Raise The Knife'. Very few know how to get there, watch the video and find out a little more about Dr Dealer's secret sanctuary!
I’m now on my fifth or sixth play through the album, all the tracks are now firmly engrained in my head and that “wow” reaction happened several plays ago! No-one who has supported the band will need me to tell them that they should buy the album, but I will anyway!

They have developed an impressive hybrid of power metal that reflects their influences and previous recordings, but with a clever cinematic vision and slight prog rock flavour that adds a taste of fantasy and fire-side story telling that could make Seven Sins the most memorable Stormzone album to date.
