Post SEVEN THE HARDWAY (Our very own TEFI with Donati/Macalpine)
Seven the Hardway is a 5-piece progressive rock/metal band based in Southern California and formed in 2009 by guitar virtuoso Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai, Planet X, CAB), drum master Virgil Donati (Planet X) and renowned vocalist Mark Boals (Uli Jon Roth, Royal Hunt, Yngwie Malmsteen).

The band’s highly anticipated 10-track eponymous debut will be released in September 2010 on Mascot/Provogue Records, and their fall European tour kicks off soon after the album’s release.

The band’s live show will consist of their entire album, a jaw-dropping drum solo from Donati, along with select covers of Tony MacAlpine’s well-known instrumentals.

Joining MacAlpine, Donati and Boals on the album are bass player Doug Shreeve and Argentinian newcomer Estefania Daniel on guitar.

A music video for the band’s first single “Guilty” (music and lyrics by Virgil) will premiere on YouTube in June.

Here are some pics from taken at the video shoot in North Hollywood California on May 8 2010.

A ha!
I thought her Ibanez looked a little different from the usual 7 strings, but I couldn't quite tell with the pictures.

I'm very happy for her!

She's just more awesome than all of us together!

HA!

That's so great to hear. I'm really happy for her!

But really, Tef, if you're reading this:

How all this happened?

That video is so bad it's almost awesome! :P
H&K have an awesome marketing tool in their blue backlights. You really can't miss them... especially with the gratuitous camera zooming in at 2:02!

Not a fan of the song at all. It reminds me of the nu-metal of early last decade, although I wasn't a fan of that either!

It's awesome for Stef, though and I would be lying if I didn't say I was a bit jealous! :P
No one's actually answered the earlier question about how it all came about?

Woah that is super fucking awesome! What a sweet gig!

I listened to the song though and really don't like it.

Congrats Tefi wherever you are!!

Wow. Horrible song. What a waste of a roomful of talent. I'm not surprised about the song once I read the "music & lyrics by Virgil". Not everyone can be Neil Peart.

Other than that, congrats on the gig. I'm sure the live gig will more than make up for that song.
