    In absence of any dedicated news on the SW front, i'd strongly recommend adding each of the guys to your Facebook. I know Andreas B is pretty active on his, and it's actually cool to get an insight into the everyday lives of the guys who write the music you love.

    At this point, it's clear that there is a heap of stuff going on in the background, so we just have to be patient. Tommy's commitment to Kamelot is a double-edged sword, but I still think it has done more for SW than not. As a fan of bands like X Japan and Shadow Gallery, patience really is key.

    If we don't hear news this year, then maybe next year :)

    YES, the release-date of the live DVD/album is official now!!!

    Here's Frontiers Music official announcement:
    BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of Seventh Wonder’s first live album “Welcome To Atlanta Live 2014” on September 23rd! Pre-orders are available here: http://radi.al/SeventhWonder

    One of the major draws of the fifteenth edition of ProgPower USA, that was the opportunity to get to see Sweden’s finest progressive metal band, Seventh Wonder perform their signature album “Mercy Falls” in its entirety. And judging by the crowd’s reaction on that night, it was obvious that the fans had been waiting for this for a long time. Not content, the band played again the following day to a crowd of gold badge-holders and VIPs, including singer Tommy Karevik’s mates from his other band KAMELOT, and performed a bunch of songs from other albums which were not played the night before.

    All in all it was a genuine and raw performance and this live album sums up very well all the best material included in Seventh Wonder's acclaimed first four albums and lets you know what to expect in terms of direction of new material to come. In fact, the band decided to round out this amazing release with two studio tracks. One is the awesome “Inner Enemy”, already available on YouTube:

    The other song, “The Promise”, is an epic track of almost 10 minutes in length which highlights the multifaceted talents of this band.

    Bass player Andreas Blomqvist says, “It has been a dream of mine for many, many years to be able to record and release a solid live product. Fans of music such as ours usually enjoy watching live performances as the musicianship is often very much in focus. "Mercy Falls" was the perfect album to bring to the live setting, but we just never had a chance to pull it off before. Finally the stars aligned, and we made it happen. As icing on the cake, Frontiers stepped in to release it for us, which we are delighted about. We are very happy with the way it turned out, and the mix is nothing short of amazing! I am thrilled to be able to bring you guys this release and thankful that Frontiers chooses to prioritize this release right away, so that the fans starved for Seventh Wonder releases at last gets something solid to sink their teeth into while waiting for the upcoming studio album!”

    This album aptly closes the first chapter of the band’s history and works as a tasty appetizer for the new studio album planned for release in early 2017.

    “Welcome To Atlanta Live 2014” will be available in two physical configurations: a 2 DVD set and a very special, limited edition deluxe digibook containing 2 CDs and 2 DVDs. Final tracklisting includes (CD version is only available in the deluxe edition 2CD/2DVD).

    The third live song from "Welcome to Atlanta - Live 2014" has now been released!

    Here's 'Taint The Sky':




    As you all will know by now, there will also be 2 (new) studio songs on the 2nd (CD)disc of the Deluxe Edition:
    'Inner Enemy' (previously released in 2014, but never on an actual SW album) and a TOTAL NEW song as well, i.e. 'The Promise' (a 09:27 song).
    If you missed our Facebook post, here's a teaser for that song:

    I received mine yesterday. It felt so wrong, but SO right, to have it before the release date. ;)

    Watching tonight while conversing with friends online watching it also!

    I (partially) transcribed some of the lyrics for The Promise:

    If this is the future ,then what have we done?
    If you think you feel teardrops(?) will save you
    Then you're not the only one
    What if maybe just maybe the promise God made to men
    What if maybe that promise is broken cause we'll never ever understand?
    That the higher we climb on the harder we fall
    When the world we know bursts to the ground(?)
    Made the tears of your __(?) make a promise to all, one last time
    I'm lost in the rain but I know that I will, I know that I will survive

    When the world is falling, for a king without a crown
    Nothing lasts forever but tonight is your night
    Hear the siren calling for a man behind the crowd
    Drop your mask and
    ask the question
    Why?Why we were left here to die?

    Would be great to get the complete, original lyrics. Really want to read them

    Immediately this DVD has vaulted itself into my own hall of fame.
    My goodness this is special. The sound is really well done (I can hear every note from Andreas!), and to have the whole second day's show on there as well, just wow.

    SO happy with this. Thank you Seventh Wonder!

    And The Promise is my absolute song of the year. I can't imagine any song being released that could please me as much as this one does. It's the newest ultimate Seventh Wonder song.

    Going to be a long wait for that next release, but I'm confident it will be worth it.

    Here's my try at it. I'm pretty sure I messed up a few words.
    This song is so great I had to try.

    The Promise by Seventh Wonder
    If this is the future, then what have we done?
    (If this is the future, what have we done?)
    If you think you feel teardrops to save you
    then you're not the only one.
    What if maybe just maybe the promise God made to men...
    (If this is the future, what have we done?)
    What if maybe that promise is broken
    cause we'll never ever understand..

    ...that the higher we climb on, the harder we fall.
    When the world we know bursts to the ground.
    May the tears on your cheek make a promise to hope one last time
    I'm lost in the rain but I know that I will. I know that I will survive.

    When the world is falling, for a king without a crown,
    nothing lasts forever but tonight is your night
    Hear the siren calling for a man behind the cloud.
    Drop your mask and ask the question
    Why? Why we were left here to die.

    I can't take it how never making an exchange is hard to make.
    Every mountainside too steep. Each valley way too deep.
    You're in a moment, (end of the mole world)? lying yourself to sleep,
    'cause in honesty reality is more than just counting sheep.
    'Cause you're a born survivor on a never ending path,
    you're a part of a beginning while in the aftermath.
    And it's a figure fire, it's a castle made of sand
    and if you only couldn't make it to the other side
    I will make you understand that..

    ..the higher we climb on, the harder we fall
    When the world we know bursts to the ground
    May the tears on your cheek make a promise to hope one last time
    I'm lost in the rain but I know that I will,
    I know that I will survive.

    When the world is falling, for a king without a crown,
    nothing lasts forever but tonight is your night
    Hear the siren calling for a man behind the cloud.
    Take it as promise cause I know we will survive.
    We will survive.

    I feel the wind hit my face
    Make it all stand reborn
    I'll never go the right way
    Butterflies will be no more
    I cannot change my power
    I will rewrite what is to come.
    No oh oh oh oh.
    Noooooooooo.

    Now the world is falling as we are kneeling down.
    The world is falling for the king without a crown
    and sirens are calling for the man behind the cloud.

    When the world is falling for a king without a crown,
    nothing lasts forever but tonight is your night.
    Hear the siren calling for a man behind the cloud.
    Drop your mask and ask the question, Why?
    Why the world is falling for a king without a crown.
    Nothing lasts forever but tonight we'll
    hear the siren calling for a man behind the cloud.
    Take it as promise cause I know we will survive.

    This DVD is excellent. So tight it hurts!! The "new" drummer rox too (of course I expected that) Well done!!

    In Swedish: Nu är det dags för en spelning på hemmaplan grabbar!! Missade Johnnys hejdå spelning. Efter
    det så har spelningarna inte duggat tätt. Inte innan heller iofs :) Skulle vara så grymt kul att se er live hemma
    i Stockholm!

    Asbra jobbat! Vilken sjukt lyckad DVD/spelning.
    Mercy Falls är och förblir en progmetal-milstolpe

    Skål gossar!
