“Manor of the Se7en Gables“ is now available for preorder at our bandcamp page.

The Digipak CD comes with an exclusive autograph card + sticker + 2 custom guitar picks.

Vinyl includes the same goodies + poster.

 

We tried to keep the shipping costs as low as possible. We’re still able to ship CDs and shirts at a reasonable rate, but it‘s extremely expensive to ship the vinyl outside the EU since the double gatefold LP is quite heavy.

 

If you still want to purchase vinyl combine the order with other merch and do not hesitate to drop us a message so we can assist you in finding the best rate. Vinyl will be available for preorder at Amazon.comvery soon, but we are not sure when.

Manor Of The Se7en Gables announced for October 26th, 2018

 

‚Witchfinder‘ first single out on September 07th, 2018

 

Second album by German-American power/thrash metal act

 

With an impressive concept that combines the most significant components of US power and thrash metal and songs that focus on lyrics about spooks and horror, Them are one of the most unusual new metal acts. Their debut album Sweet Hollow (2016) already more than hinted at the artistic potential of the six-piece. Their successor release Manor Of The Se7en Gables sees the group surrounding frontman KK Fossor present an album that takes up thematically where its predecessor left off but goes on to explore the stylistic extremes of this musical genre even further. “Manor Of The Se7en Gables sounds harder, darker and technically more sophisticated than Sweet Hollow,” main songwriter Markus Ullrich sketches the benchmark data of the latest release, adding: “At the same time, fans may be taken by surprise by a number of changes because we have unmistakably continued to evolve as a band during the past two years.” The German guitarist, who was among the founder members of prog metal band Lanfear before joining Them in autumn 2013 and continues to be a member of speed/thrash metal act Septagon and instrumental project A Cosmic Trail, values this evolvement: “I like it when songs also live up to certain technical standards. Luckily, we can easily fulfil those technical standards thanks to this outstanding line-up.”

Ullrich speaks respectfully of his American colleagues KK Fossor, guitarist Markus Johansson (Sylencer, 4ARM) and drummer Angel Cotte (Demolition Hammer), and the German contingent consisting of bassist Alexander Palma and keyboardist Richie Seibel (Lanfear, Ivanhoe). Courtesy of their impressive technical skills, they have as little difficulty mastering the demanding songs on Manor Of The Se7en Gables as American bassist Mike Lepond (Symphony X, Ross The Boss), who supported Them during the studio production as a guest musician and – as on Sweet Hollow – put the icing on the cake (or rather the songs) with his musical experience. Not forgetting Paul Sabu (Alice Cooper, David Bowie), who further refined the material as a chorus vocalist.

Manor Of The Se7en Gables was mixed by Dave Otero at the Flatline Audio studios in Denver. The band will then go on to strike on all fronts at the same time. Ullrich: “We played 30 shows to support the release of our debut. Now we’re set to top that number with the new songs.” An ambitious target which definitely seems realistic in view of this fantastic recording.

 

"Manor Of The Se7en Gables" will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on October 26th, 2018 as CD DigiPak, 2LP Gatefold, download and stream.

New signing at Steamhammer/SPV

Manor Of The Se7en Gables announced for autumn 2018

Second album by German-American power/thrash metal act

 

The German-American band Them is one of the most remarkable and charismatic new metal outfits that Steamhammer/SPV have signed in recent years. The group’s masterminds are American vocalist KK Fossor (ex-Coldsteel) and German guitarist Markus Ullrich, co-founder of prog metal band Lanfear and member of speed/thrash metal act Septagon as well as instrumental project A Cosmic Trail. American Markus Johansson (Sylencer, 4ARM) is the second guitarist and the rhythm section features his two fellow-countrymen, bassist Mike Lepond (Symphony X, Ross The Boss) and drummer Angel Cotte (Demolition Hammer). The line-up is completed by German keyboardist Richie Seibel (Lanfear, Ivanhoe). Them’s style consists of gutsy power/thrash metal with distinctly American leanings. The release of their second album Manor Of The Se7en Gables has been announced for October 2018.

 

Them were founded in summer 2007 by frontman KK Fossor and started out as a King Diamond tribute band. The arrival of guitarist Markus Ullrich in autumn 2013 marked a change in the group’s concept and a move towards their own material. Autumn 2016 saw the arrival of their debut album Sweet Hollow, accompanied by a tour through the US and Canada alongside Helloween. The Sweet Hollow concept will now be continued in the twelve songs on Manor Of The Se7en Gables.

 

Head of Steamhammer Olly Hahn has great confidence in the new SPV signing: “Thanks to their charismatic frontman KK Fossor and their extremely interesting concept it shouldn’t take long for Them to establish themselves at the very top of the metal scene. We’re delighted to support them in achieving their goal.”

 

Markus Ullrich is also thoroughly optimistic: “We’re convinced that SPV is the perfect label to take the next steps with and turn Them into an internationally acclaimed act.”
