What’s the 4-1-1?
Seven Witches formed in 1999. This is their fourth album.
Heavy metal / hard rock / rock
Guitarist Jack Frost lays down some killer heavy metal riffs and guitar runs on tracks like “Fame Gets You Off,” “Red,” and “Sunnydale High.”
Too bad the new Seven Witches vocalist Alan Tecchio can’t sing for shit. Yeah that’s right. I don’t usually come down on people this hard, but this is ridiculous. Why the hell would anyone make an album with these vocals? Tecchio has absolutely no melody and can barely sing in tune. That might be good for your first demo or first EP, but Seven Witches (and Jack Frost) have been around long enough to know better. On the vocal lows Tecchio is practically talking. When it comes to the vocal highs, he’s just yelling (like you would to a friend at the end of the bar). The ballad “Be” is just abysmal, and it’s not the vocals. It’s the combination of vocals and piano. Frost is a good guitarist, but some of his performances were uninteresting and inconsistent. Don’t even get me started on their cover of Billy Idol’s “Flesh for Fantasy.”
Inconsistent, out of tune, and just plain awful.
Did You Know?
Jack Frost was once a member of Savatage. Although you’ll be hard pressed to find that info on their website.
