Seven Impale

Seven Impale is a progressive jazz rock sextet from Bergen, Norway. Ever since the group was founded in 2010 their goal has been to make music that is challenging and interesting, both to the listeners and to themselves. Being inspired by everything from ambient electronica to trash metal Seven Impale’s music has an inherent complexity, all the while maintaining a solid groove-based foundation for catchy melodies and recurring themes.
Seven Impale’s debut album, “City of the Sun”, was very well received by the prog audience over the world, and in the year poll of 2014 at, the album got ranked as the 7th best that year.
In 2016, Seven Impale teamed up again with producer Iver Sandøy (produced Enslaved, Krakow etc.) in Solslottet Studio to record the follow up. The band has grown a lot since the debut, without losing any of their youthful energy. “Contrapasso” consists of nine highly varied and complex tracks expanding upon the unique sound Seven Impale started investigating on “City of the Sun”, but they’ve gone much further this time. On “Contrapasso” you find a band that are more daring, experimental and complex. Again, they touch upon the harder soundscapes as well as including more catchy and upbeat tracks, but on this album everything goes one step further. Visiting places where no band has been before, with “Contrapasso” Seven Impale pay no heed to genre boundaries.
Melding melody, experimentation, dramatics, atmosphere and contrasting rythms, with “Contrapasso”, Seven Impale has created an essential album for any fan of progressive rock!
