Snake Eyes Seven - 13 Crows (Reissue)

Snake Eyes Seven
13 Crows (Reissue)
by Craig Rider at 31 July 2017, 3:53 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I'm proud to present to you: SNAKE EYES SEVEN; signed via High Vol Music, hailing from Canadian grounds - performing Rock, on their reissue of the 2010 album entitled: “13 Crows”.

Since formation in 2005; the quintet in question distribute a solid slab of hard-hitting Rock and constructive Heavy Metal equalities, 13 tracks ranging at around 45 minutes - the quartet deliver an enlightening round of intricately designed instrumentation and musicianship. Opening with the titular track: “13 Crows”, the main attraction right off the speakers would have to be Ken Stone on vocals, immediately I notice a distinct characteristic as the vocalization has a slight influence on GUNS N ROSES vocalist Axl Rose, only the rocker formulates a more thunderous sound in his voice that screams with power. If anything should happen to aforementioned celebrity, get Ken on board!! “Can't Fall Down” showcases more elegant fulfillments including insatiably groovy riffs from founding member Cole Stevens on guitar, thumping solos and rhythmic complexities captivates you in a stranglehold of a grip.

Consisting of powerhouse bassist Mike Cillis, the man delivers a fine contribution to the sound production while striving with complex dexterities at his wake. “David And Goliath” is another exquisite track; full of efficiently composed melodies and entertaining harmonics that sound chaotic as well savage, pummeling drummer Johnny Blade has a consistent array of smashing adroitness especially in the short epic “Show Me The Money”. This track portrays catchy stimulations that showcases energetically sufficient compositions of true grit; chugging, galloping riffs & a maelstrom of flamboyantly proficient cords - flourishing with an organically produced aesthetic. “Freight Train” excels with more delightful dominance as the originality begins to grow more memorable; “Missing You” is the longest on the record - toning it down with more unprecedented substances, and more of those intensely high-pitched screams and upbeat singing arrangements.

While Ken performs with a substantial amount of deafeningly scorching screams of steel, Cole, Mike & Johnny gracefully balance with distinguishable attributions all round. “All About You” is a 2:37 energizer, where psychedelic salubriousness shrouds with divinity in mind.  “Resurrection”, “Creatures Of Night” & “Peaceful Moment” (the latter being an atmospheric instrumental), stirs a groovy mix of stunning harmonics and destructive melodies that immerses you in a amalgamation of poetic yet booming formulaic of succulent creativity. And so concluding “13 Crows” with “Little Peace Of Heaven”, (a nice anthem ballad) “Furnace” (a menacing Heavy Metal opus) & “Hell Or High Water” (an admirable conclusion), I overall am compelled to say that SNAKE EYES SEVEN have outdone themselves with this one - this was a welcoming discovery that all Hard Rock and Heavy Metal fans would love to endure. Check it out.
