Sonic Voyage Presents: STRINGFEST

Seven Suns

http://www.sevensunsmusic.com

SEVEN)SUNS is a string quartet that plays dystopian music rooted in the language of avant metal and hardcore. Our repertoire is drawn from works by the members of the group, re-imagined string quartet versions of metal and hardcore songs, as well as music from the Western art music tradition that we decide fits our sound/time/place. 

We did a cover Pantera's "This Love/Domination" and a cover of The Dillinger Escape Plan's "43% Burnt". The videos have received over 100,000 views combined and led to features on numerous heavy metal websites such as Metal Injection, SkullsandBones.com, and MetalSucks.net, among others. This, in turn, has led to a collaboration with The Dillinger Escape Plan. We appear prominently on their final album "Dissociation", released in 2016.
