Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Seventh Station was founded by Dmitri Alperovich (Guitar) and Alexey Polyansky (Bass) in Jerusalem, Israel in 2008. In 2010 Eren Basbug (Keyboards) joined the band and later on Dor Levin (Drums) and Davidavi Dolev (Vocals). Today, the band is based in Slovenia and its members are from Slovenia, Israel and USA.  

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music? 
We call our style "Progxtreme" because we take our compositions to the level of no limits to genres or styles, everything is open and we can play different styles of music in one piece. Our main influences are: Classical composers such as: Dmitri Shostakovich, J.S Bach, Sergei Prokofiev and lots of others. For the modern music, we have so many influences that it would be really long to list them all, but the main ones are: Dream Theater, Symphony X, Pain of Salvation and more. 

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Why not? :)  seriously now, we are a band that blended with lots of different genres and tastes, everyone can find in our music something to get connected with. The music is played by A class musicians and dedicated for the sake of art. With all the bad stuff that is happening today in music industry, metalheads are still people who like to support their bands, they are the hope for metal music today.   

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media? 
The band will release its debut album on 7th of September. The few reviews which were posted already were really positive and written very nice. Meanwhile we released first single from the album called "Abnormal Circles Doubtful Hour" and it was reviewed by many countries around the globe. 

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Unfortunately, we didn't play live much. We are an international band and its harder to arrange concerts for now. But, we are planning to go for European tour in spring of 2017 to support the album.

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
I think they need to listen to our music and to the level of the band members, we think it says it all. The best message is the one you understand by your inner thoughts and create a new message out of it.

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Our plans for the near future: Release the debut album, go on a tour and getting back to the studio for recording the next album, which is in the writing process now.
