    Will the title-track be the ULTIMATE PROG METAL SUITE in history?? Could it beat such monster songs as "A Change Of Seasons" (Dream Theater), "Ghostship" (Shadow Gallery) or "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy" (Symphony X) ?? Stay tuned for the end of the story...... :D

    You guys NEED to come to aus sometime.
    i'm gunna take a stab in the dark that the theme of the album is something along the lines of 'time is running out, i need to escape my mind before it's too late.'
    too many possibillitys though.

    also funny story. every friday i play poker, everytime i've been listening to break the silence i win the hand. that hasn't failed in 8 weeks straight.

    I am actually pretty sure that the word Michael you changed above is correct. It mentions Elvis in the previous line and I think Michael refers to Michael Jackson (I could be wrong).

    I'm along for the ride. Ever since I've heard Alley Cat, I've been listening to it constantly in between a lot of Mercy Falls. I'm ready for this album. When can we pre-order?

    I think it's not Elvis, and rather "All This"

    I just noticed that the guys (at least Andreas, Johan and Kyrt) are wearing something that looks like a bulletproof vest of some sort. What do you think does that mean?

    Hi guys ^^. New member to this site, but i've been following SW for a while now. The new album and all about it reaks of awesome!
    I've been lsitening closely to "Alley Cat" And I wonder if theyre at the end of the first chorus sings "All fine" but its "allright" in the others and a mix in the final chorus ^^?
    Also I think its "A stray in the alleys of this town" since theyre singing of the clown ^^?

    Otherwise spot on!

    And everything is better with vests (especially bulletproof ones ^^)!

    I only got into Seventh Wonder earlier this year, after getting to like Dream Theater last year and then Symphony X.

    Apart from those two bands, Seventh Wonder has been the only progressive metal band that has really stuck with me as a great. Mercy Falls is one of my favourite albums. DT is my favourite prog metal band but Seventh Wonder might be second... it's pretty close with SX, especially since SX have so many more albums to compare against.

    Anyway it's amazing to get to like a band only to find out a new album is coming up soon :D I'm really looking forward to it. The new song sounds awesome, mainly I can't wait for the title track though.

    Haha yeah, nothing worse than getting bored of the song by the time the album's released...but then again, is it even possible to get bored of that song?

    That's the point, SW isn't that type of bend. You can allways hear something new. That's why it's prog, it's not just what you hear now, it's what your gonna hear later.
    Just don't worry :)

    Alley cat is without any doubt the song of the year! (at least until the rest of the album is released)!
    Andreas, I really hope you will be better with live performances in sweden from now on.
    I saw you at sweden rock last year and Im just waiting and waiting for some more concerts!!
    I mean come on!! When you are the best band in the world, its a shame more people wont get the chance to see you or even know about you. Btw, Im wearing my SW t-shirt all the time and its getting weaker. How can I buy a new one!? (or three of them)
