32-A Bio

With the independent release of their EP 'Haven For The Lost', 32-A are hitting South Wales hard with an original breed of rock metal with choice cuts of atmospheric keys and samples. The culmination of their sound has put 32-A in a place of its own and popularity grows by the day. They will impress with a tight and energetic performance that so many crowds have warmed to already.

They have supported some fantastic touring acts such as Forever Never, Fei Comodo and Ill System and have performed in major venues around South Wales and beyond. They have had coverage on radio and podcasts including an interview on Bridge FM as an exciting up and coming act for Wales. Local press has also praised them in various articles. 32-A are one of the chosen acts to be represented by Ed Stone Rock Wear, a designer clothing company who also represent huge names in Metal like Trivium, Lamb Of God and Chimaira

Seven Years Dead

Rock3 review of album 'To The Ruin Of All'

Hailing from Manchester and Warrington in the North West of England, sevenyearsdead originally formed in 2001, but it wasn’t until brothers Pete (guitar) and Jez (vocals) joined forces with drummer Dave, and G on bass, that SYD started making waves in the local and national metal scene. After 5 years, 3 EPs and hundreds of gigs across the country, Dave decided to pursue other career paths and amicably parted company with SYD in March 2006. SYD temporarily rehearsed and gigged with Kath, a superb drummer from Manchester, for about 5 months from May to October of 2006, and after an intense search, Nuno was found. He joined the band in October 2006. Originally from Portugal, he has been living in the UK for only a year or two. It seemed fate that he should join SYD, for instantly a tight, heavy as hell sound emerged, thanks to Nuno’s powerhouse drumming, with insane double bass and a rhythmic percussion reminiscent of the great Vinnie Paul.

Influences that include Pantera, Slipknot, Skid Row and Machine Head, have given each member of the band a desire to not only carry on a tradition of no-holds-barred metal, but to create blistering heavy-as-lead riffs coupled with emotive harmonies and powerful lyrics, that truly sets them apart from the majority of modern metal bands. Their dedication and hard-working attitude towards writing and performing their music give sevenyearsdead a truly original and refreshingly unique sound, which comes to the fore when they play live; an aggressive, professional show that is tight and well honed, full of dynamic and infectious energy.

All that can be said is that this is the band SYD have always wanted to be and after 5 months of serious and dedicated rehearsals, the writing for the debut album, ‘To the Ruin of All’ was finished and it was finally recorded in April 2007 and will be released on Casket Music in July / August 2007.

SYD can only go from strength to strength. The album makes huge leaps forward from their previous EPs, and showcases each member’s talent for constructing contemporary, original, yet catchy old-school heavy metal with heavy emphasis on vocal harmonies and melody.


ALBUMS.

The debut album called 'To the Ruin of All', has recently been recorded at Philia Studios in Henley-on-Thames, with Nick Hemingway as producer and will be released on Casket Music in July / August 2007. More details to follow! ..m/


EPs.

The first, in 2001, was called ‘Every Kind of Agony’, and although an early recording, their strong sound was already emerging, and the songs remained a strong part of the set for a number of years.

The second, in 2003, entitled ‘postrendgeneration’, set the scene and settled the band into the writing and creative mindset that made postrendgeneration a favourite among sevenyearsdeads fans. It established sevenyearsdead as a force to be reckoned with among the unsigned metal scene and they gigged relentlessly across the country to promote the release.

The third EP was recorded at Parr St Studios in Liverpool in 2004, and is entitled ‘Almost All’. It contains 4 tracks; Deathwatch, Almost All, Ill of the Dead and Juggernaut. (all of which have been re-recorded for ‘To the Ruin of All’)

Angryculture.com called it ‘..four of the catchiest heavy metal tunes that are going to grace your stereo for quite a while.. and ..With catchy lyrics and repetitive powerful riffs, Almost All quite literally has it all..’

It showed a mature and even more professional side to the band, and the superior writing comes from the band growing and tightening as a unit in the 12 months since postrendgeneration was released. CDs sold well at every gig they played and together with t-shirts and other merchandise, the sevenyearsdead name and logo fast became a regular appearance at gigs across the country. They gigged hard again in 2004, highlights including several trips to play in London, and an appearance at the Bloodstock 2004 festival in September with such bands as Panic Cell, FourWayKill, Gutworm, and Children of Bodom.


VIDEOS

A promo video for ‘Almost All’ was filmed in Nov 2005 by Dan Ackroyd at the Bristol Bierkeller.
