    Hey guys,

    My band just self-released(via Kickstarter) an EP at the beginning of the month titled "In The Walls". It features two brand new songs from our forthcoming LP(due out early next year), and then complete re-recordings of two songs from the band's first album(Brothers of the Night, 2007).

    The title track is pretty much full bore power metal all the way through, and lyrically is inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft story "The Rats in the Walls". The second track, "Undying" brings the speed down a bit, but is a little more typically power metal in it's lyrical content, coming from George R.R. Martin's fantasy series "a Song of Ice and Fire".

    The two old songs are also aSoIaF inspired, as that album was entirely based on those themes. Stormborn still features the original singer, Bryan, doing his harsh vocal parts, along with our current singer Sabrina doing the cleans.

    These songs aren't super bass-heavy(there's a bit more wankery to come on the LP), but I of course appreciate any feedback on the tone and playing.

    Signal chain for bass tracking was a Warwick Vampyre LTD in Drop-C tuning, strung with D'Addario Nickels, through an Idiotbox FX Blower Box, into ch. 1 on a Mesa/Boogie 400+ and Krank "Basszilla" 4x10/2x12 cab. DI was run through an SVT profile to add some more meat to the clean signal.

    You can stream the EP here: Listen to Seven Kingdoms’ H.P. Lovecraft-Inspired EP ‘In the Walls’ (Exclusive)

    Thanks!

    That's some pretty hooky metal. I dig it.
