Our studious readers may recall we premiered a track from a Canadian band called Seven Nines and Tens back in early 2013.
Well, that melodic "skygaze" outfit is finally back in action ready to release new music, and we're stoked to be bringing you the exclusive premiere of the atmospheric "I Come From Downtown" single.
Featuring artwork by Nic Brown and a new band photo courtesy of Asia Fairbanks, check out the track below and get info on upcoming live activity from Seven Nines And Tens at Facebook here.
For those wondering if this means more material is on the horizon, you'll be pleased to know "I Come From Downtown" is only the first single from the second Seven Nines & Tens record “Set the Control for the Heart of the Slums.”
The album was conceived after principle songwriter David Cotton spent 500 consecutive days writing the music, and the album's mission statement is simple: defy any new/haphazard music industry model with timeless songwriting. “Set the Control for the Heart of the Slums” exhibits a dramatic leap in compositional refinement amid Everest sized melodic motifs.
After the album’s release, Seven Nines & Tens will support the record with extensive touring throughout 2016 and 2017, so stay tuned for more news. More...
Seven Nines and Tens has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with the band's drummer/bassist:
"On a melancholy note, our longtime bassist/drummer Earl Heath has chosen to leave Sn&t. His departure is completely amicable and his enthusiasm and jaw dropping talents will be markedly absent and wholeheartedly missed from this point forward.
"We had a stellar run and just like in the case of recently departed member Riley Roukema, the door is always open on Saturdays boise. Kerry and I are still very much a band and we will keep you updated regularly."
The band also recently teamed up with us to premiere the new single "Constants & Axioms/Kemptville." Check out the single at this location.
Vancouver's Seven Nines and Tens spent upwards of a year recording and mixing debut album "Habitat 67," and we were fortunate enough to team up with the band to stream the full release online.

"Seven Nines and Tens would like to welcome our new guitarist Kerry to the fold! Kerry brings an extensive jazz background to the band along with an impressive collection of boutique effects. Drummer Earl said that we've never sounded better after our 2 hour jam last night. After 4 years of being a band this is a cause for ridiculous excitement for us." More...

Metalunderground.com previously premiered the track "Crystalline Xanthine Alkaloid," which is also available for free download.
Seven Nines and Tens has issued a short update about their latest studio activities:
"We were back at the deadroom mixing last night. The song we were working on was conceived in 2007! It really was an eye opening experience as far as how much our style has changed over the years, its like night and day. The track in question is called 'Famke' and we are SO damn proud and can't wait for you all to hear it."
Metalunderground recently premiered the new song, "Crystalline Xanthine Alkaloid," which you can also download as an MP3.
Having been featured in our Vancouver experimental metal edition of "Unearthing the Underground" as well talking at length with us about their new record "Habitat 67" during a recent interview Vancouver instrumental metal act Seven Nines and Tens has turned to Metalunderground.com to premiere a brand new song from its forthcoming album. The track, titled "Crystalline Xanthine Alkaloid," promises to be one of the band's heaviest yet.

Founding member Dave Cotton offered the following commentary about the song:
"This was the most recent song we wrote before we went to the studio in February 2011. Anyone who has been following us since we first started playing live in 2008 would recognize that the sound of this song is a departure to what we had been doing previously. I feel our older material is very intricate as far as the arrangements go and this song is simpler and most definitely heavier. I could tell you exactly who we are trying to emulate as far as influences go, but I’ll leave it up to the listener put it together. Our engineer is a whiz and I think his touch is all over the song; I particularly like the mixing he did on the drums. Also creating the noise part in the middle was some of the most fun I’ve ever had in a recording studio. We all took turns using a Korg Kaos pad through a Boss Giga delay through a Roland Juno, through a Roland Handsonic on 'Texas Chainsaw Masscre' mode."
Vancouver progressive metal act Seven Nines and Tens, which was included at a previous look at the Vancouver metal scene in the "Unearthing the Metal Underground" column, has posted a new song online. The track, titled "ASOHA," is taken from the band's forthcoming full length album which is currently planned for a mid summer release.
Each week in Unearthing the Metal Underground, we'll be putting a few quality underground bands in the spotlight in an attempt to get the word out about them. This week I am revisiting Vancouver, Canada’s underground metal scene. While last time we gave some of the city's death metal bands the spotlight, this time I'm taking a look at the city’s more experimental metal acts. There is no doubt that this west coast Canadian city is abundant in metal talent, but beneath the piles of death metal and hardcore/metalcore acts lay a handful of exceptionally talented progressive and experimental bands. This week we will be taking a closer look at three of these bands.
Nylithia is an absolute force in every aspect. Its music is insanely technical and vastly diverse. While being labeled as a death metal act, Nylithia combines stylistic elements from many different areas. Technical death metal, progressive metal, ambient and melodic thrash metal are all combined into one fluent sound. The members who come together in Nylithia are also exceptionally young and are one of the youngest active bands in the Vancouver metal scene. A debut EP was released in 2008 by the name of “Infector,” and the band is currently setting up some studio time to record its second album and debut full length for a mid-2011 release. Nylithia has already made news around the world when they debuted a music video for its adaptation of a Super Mario theme song, which Metalunderground.com covered. Do not be surprised if you start to hear alot more about Nylithia in 2011. Its extremely entertaining debut music video for the track “Replicants” is available for viewing below. Nylithia may be underground today, but could easily become a household name in extreme metal in the years to come.
