German Heavy Instrumental project BLACK7 releases exciting “DRIVEN” Single and Video of upcoming Album with SODEH Records.
Black 7 release “Driven” from the forthcoming album “2nd Chapter”. The song is fast, heavy and melodic. A perfect driving song! The mix of high lead guitar and low power chords reflects the range of
the song’s sound. A song that almost runs you over. The lead guitar glides through the song without sinking into unnecessary solos. “After longer songs with extensive arrangements predominated on the first album, “Driven” is a classic opener. Short, catchy and stirring. The sound is supported by violin parts that should bring the melody to bear better. With this song, Black 7 also shows the further development since the first album. The song gets straight to the point.” explains Lars Totzke
Black 7 is a solo project by Lars Totzke, a guitarist and songwriter from Hanover. After his first album “Look Inside” was successfully released in 2021, the sequel “2nd Chapter” is scheduled to drop in 2023. Stylistically it is a bit darker besides the melodic songs. Many different moods and styles are fused together again. Heavy
parts alternating with quiet moments creating a wonderful journey to the listener, you will never miss the vocals!
Influenced by bands and artists such as Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Sevendust, Dream Theater, Slipknot and Korn, but also by Satriani, Gary Moore, Al di Meola and Paco de Lucia, Lars Totzke’s music is a unique mixture of its own. This time, too, all instruments have been recorded by Lars himself. A large development in growth can be clearly seen in this second album, from style to composition and structure.
