SEVENTH SON GUITARIST DAVE FOX PRESENTS HIS BRAINCHILD ‘UNWANTED GUEST’ - A PROJECT OF RETRO-MODERNIST METAL
Through the Covid pandemic of 2020, UK metal band Seventh Son were, like most bands at that time, taking a break.
Their guitarist Dave Fox had always wanted to put something out under his own banner and this gave him the opportunity to do so without interfering with the bands work.
Dave has written, recorded and produced around 20 tracks, 12 of which appear on a brand new album ‘Grave Metallum’ - out now on CD and all streaming platforms.
The songs are all influenced by his personal taste in rock, grunge and metal and has been a labour of love for over 2 years, racking up nearly 1000 hrs of recording and production time. He sings all the vocals and plays all the instruments on each song.
Dave has been a gigging rock guitarist & producer since the age of 20. He has played all over Europe and has appeared on radio stations the world over.
Also available is the 4 track EP ‘Unwanted Guest’, where all the proceeds from CD and streaming purchases go to the mental health charity MIND.
Grave Metallum took around 2 years to create, record & produce and is considered by many to be Dave’s best work up to date.
The album is a breath of clean air for anyone who listens to new or modern metal. It retains the full-on force of a big rock album with heavy riffs, blistering guitar solos and pounding drums, whilst injecting semi-autobiographical narratives into the vocals.
2 of the songs also feature lyrics by the renowned writer and poet Jo Fearon.
