Facepalm x 1000. It seems that my haste to stay on track yesterday night, combined with some looser scheduling at work and increased time off this week, had the net result of causing me to totally space on the day yesterday. A Wednesday post on a Wednesday is good, but a Throwback Thursday post on a Wednesday is a little premature.
So anyways, no Throwback today, just Thursday, and a bit of a "Where Are They Now? Wednesday" post since I shot the Thursday wad early yesterday. It's been a few years since we've heard from Seattle's 7 Horns 7 Eyes, which is a shame, because 2012's Throes of Absolution is a masterwork of groovy, progressively-minded death metal that's a) big and epic, and b) old school- and new school-feeling at the same time.
Checking out 7H7E's Facebook page tells me that the guys may in fact (finally!) be working on some new material, but for the time being we're all going to have to be content with the band's current catalogue a while longer. If you already know 7 Horns 7 Eyes and Throes of Absolution, this will be easy for you: just put said record on and rock out. If, however, you're currently unfamiliar with these guys, please allow me to suggest "Cycle of Self" as a suitably heavy starting point. You won't be disappointed.
