Death / Thrash / Hardcore from Vancouver BC
Past Shows (43)
There are a lot of metal bands out there, especially since metal started to make its popular comeback a few years ago. With that comeback there has been a lot of isagreement about what actually defines the metal genre. The subgenres "new-metal" and "old-metal"
have emerged out of this disagreement. True enough, the metal that was being played in the 80s and the early 90s often demanded a lot more technical skill of its players than the metal that has developed since then. However, it is also true that almost all creative/artistic media have shifted from a space for demonstration of technical virtuosity to a space for an increasing purity and force of emotive, effective,
exprimental and creative construction.
There is also an increasing number of bands that make music that is formulaic, or just plain static. Bands tend to find a formula that works and roll with it. Everyone wants to make money, there's no denying that, but should it come at the cost of one's artistic
intuition and integrity?
Vancouver's 7th sunn seems to think otherwise. The band shows great interest in avoiding the trends that other modern metal bands have cashed in on. They
maintain a creative and refreshing approach to a genre that has been around for a long time. 7th sunn melds the best haracteristics of what has been dubbed "new-metal" with the best characteristics of "old-metal." The result turns out to be an impressive brand of
raging heavy-metal that, alongside an incredibly animated stage show, is sure to take these guys somewhere!
