Metal Act 7MND Release New EP ‘Cataclysm’ [Bahrain]

7MND is the solo project of Bahrain’s Hamad Ebrahim Hamad. He released the debut album “Behemyth” back in 2017 and is now following that up with “Cataclysm”. The concept EP is a whirlwind of emotions, riffs, and breakdowns as it tells the story of a man attempting to find himself in the world. There is a wide assortment of techniques and elements to be discovered on the album, from the melancholy soundscapes and static stabs of synths on “Introspect” to the painful chord-filled chorus in “Verge of Collapse” to the mammoth-like breakdowns in “A Light, A Door” to the introspective blend of all the musical motifs explored in the album through “Dream/Infinite” and finally, the epic, orchestral eulogy present in “(No One Left To) Mourn”. Hamad explains the record in further detail:

“When I started 7MND, a lot of it was born of experimentation, fun, and trying to channel all my influences into things that feel original. Now I feel like there’s a lot more focus on portraying emotions in as raw a way as possible. Whereas in my previous releases I tended to go towards complexity and something maybe showy, the new music I’m working on is all about chasing a feeling, or telling a story, and doing it justice.”

Hamad has spent considerable time getting this release together and he expects a solid release from fans around the world as they experience the story and the feelings that radiate throughout the music. As a concept EP, each track flows into the next, creating a journey that should be related to all kinds of people. Each song tends to stem from a singular point, either an emotion or an atmosphere he is trying to convey. It usually starts with a guitar riff or a melody, then as he further explores the idea, it’ll usually write itself.

The EP was self-produced by Hamad, mixed by himself and Jack Byrne, and mastered by Arran Dutt. It is expansive and emotive and recommended for fans of Between the Buried and Me, Northlane, and Tesseract. is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
