The best kept secret in music


This album is called “Catalog Debris” because it features several new versions of songs Seven Degrees from Center recorded in the past. It’s a smart move, considering some of the band’s early work was marred by poor mixes and featured just one guitarist instead of two. As a result, we finally hear the full impact of Tim Koberstein’s explosive voice and the friction-filled textures of guitarists Scott Dubbs and Ross Neu. This is a hard rock band, but its nimble moves and dramatic moods are suggestive of mid-’80s U2.

The fourth Benchmark Records Battle of the Bands has been a 29-week-long and winding road to the finish. Of the 215 bands that originally registered to participate in this particular battle, no other group has had the endurance to make it to the finals more times than Seven Degrees From Center.

7DFC celebrates its victory at The Battle of The BandsAfter three trips to the Super Bowl of Midwestern music contests, 7DFC finally pulled off the win in the final round with a commanding performance and spirited showing of loyalists. Drew, Hamed, Ross, Tim and Scott are sure to make good use of the prize package that includes $10,000 cash, a touring van and recording time at Echo Park.

Each with their respective handicaps and advantages, the question was what is the $10,000 difference between these eight bands? The answer was revealed while observing the crowd watching 7DFC’s set. Pulsing and swelling along with the notoriously intense modern rock, it was like watching a crowd under rhythmic hypnosis. Therein lies their real victory: playing with maximum intensity and pulling in everyone within earshot. Because they were able to most effectively do this better than any other contender, they can finally retire their parking space in future battle finals. Or more simply, perhaps the third time really is the charm.

12. Seven Degrees From Center

With bass-heavy, thudding rhythms paired with intricate melodic lines, 7DFC is a powerhouse. They"re especially adept at building up tension within a song and then unleashing it with a frenzy of energy. Having only gotten better over the past year - they were the winners of the Fox 59 a.m. Battle of the Bands - it"s scary to think how good they can become. Their new album, set for release on April 19, could answer that question.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Seven Degrees from Center has created a strong following in the Midwest by relentlessly performing in a wide variety of markets. Influenced by the dark melodies of The Cure, the guitar rhythms of U2, and the passion of nine inch nails, 7DFC has created their own brand of intense, emotional rock. Tim Koberstein's soaring vocals perfectly accent the foundation laid by Drew Bowman (bass), Hamed Anwarzai (drums), Scott Dubbs (guitar) and Ross Neu (guitar). Well known for their unrelenting live performance, 7DFC is one the hardest working bands in Indianapolis playing/promoting over 120 shows in 2004. The hard work paid off at the finals of the 2004 Battle of the Bands where they took home top prize over the more than 200 area bands to enter the prestigious event.

7DFC's Catalog Debris (2005) has distribution in 31 record stores across the nation, and will be featured in Magnet's CD sampler in May 2006.
