FELINE MELINDA are back at the start of 2024 with their new studio album "Seven". The front cover of the album reveals the proverbial consistency ofthe long-lasting rock band from South Tyrol/Italy.

"Seven - VII" opens another chapter in the discography of FELINE MELINDA, where by the band has always remained true to its own musical style and passion for music, presenting eleven tracks with catchy melodies and skilful guitar work. Independent and far from the current market logic of the music business and the wide-ranging genre of hard and heavy music, the band continues to follow its own path.
The musicians of FELINE MELINDA have always attached great importance to making music out of pure joy and passion. With "Seven", the band presents a versatile, varied album, through which a common thre adruns from the opener "Welcome To The Show" to the obligatory ballad "BeforeThe Dawn": uncomplicated, catchy song material, best described as a mixture of power and pop metal, with a touch of symphonic rock and AOR influences.

The song "Seventh Heaven", which was released as a single including amusic video at the end of last year, perfectly embodies these stylistic elements of the new repertoire. For the song, which was conceived and composed as a duet, Rob, Chris, Gschnell and HeadMatt once again relied on their proven collaboration with singer Doris Albenberger for the female vocal part. Sascha Paeth, producer, mastermind of Masters of Ceremony and guitarist of Tobias Sammet's Avantasia, is responsible for the mixing and mastering of "Seven - VII".
