Biography

Remember when Rock music shook you to the core? 7th Cycle is influenced by both hard rock and early nineties rock bands, 7th Cycle maintains a different viewpoint from many of their contemporaries, having witnessed firsthand the struggles that can affect the human spirit. My job influenced the lyrics that I write because I have seen people in their greatest and in their worst moments, says vocalist Dustin Grove, who once worked as a detective, I have seen how souls can be touched and how souls can be crushed.

The journey of 7th Cycle really started to take off within the last 4 years. They have won 3 Midwest battles of the bands. Were named 2009 Artist to watch by Skope Magazine. Along with their tri-state area touring, they played Rock on the Range in 2011 as well as Rockapalooza later in the same year. They have been a main stage act for the Woodshock Festival two years consecutively. 7th Cycle has shared the stage with well over 100 national touring acts including Papa Roach, Hinder, Seether, AFI, Drowning Pool, Sevendust, and Avenged Sevenfold to name a few. In 2012, 7th Cycle toured as a supporting act for the Graveyard of Empires Tour 2012 with Evans|Blue.

7th Cycle has clearly begun to create their impression on the industry. 7th Cycle has been added to over 20 internet radio sites, 16,000 digital juke boxes, and secured placement for their songs in independent films: Enlightenment, Reckless Operation, "The Dirt Racing Connection," is featured on the "Flat Track Fan website (http://flattrackfan.webs.com/) and have also played live on Fox 28s Good Day Columbus, which is the most popular morning television show in Ohio. They are also featured in the book: All Access: A View Through the Lens Volume 1 by photographer and author, Christopher Stets.

7th Cycle recorded their first album, My Lies Within, at Track Six Studio (Hed PE, Drivers Side Impact), with producer Don Debiase (Forever in Terror, Beneath the Sky). Released in January of 2008, it quickly became a regional favorite, selling several thousand of copies and leading to the filming of the bands first music video, for the song Turn Away.

In March of 2010, 7th Cycle recorded and released their second album titled "Small Town Drama" this time with producer Bryan Patrick (Sinomatic, Cherry Monroe, Downplay.) Small Town Drama has sold 6500 copies since its release. 7th Cycle is currently touring and supporting this album with close to 150 shows played in 2011 and 2012 combined. 7th Cycle plans to release their 3rd and newest album entitled: Out of Many, One in 2014.

Lyrics

My Enemy

Written By: 7th Cycle LLC

Verse
Im having these feelings of rage that are fighting to overcome me!
They're trying to take control make me blind and chase my senses from me!

Pre-Chorus
Once again I'm at a point in my life where I hope to claim a piece of me.
Sometimes I feel like redemption is my enemy.

Chorus
My enemy x 4

Verse
Inside I feel empty and I cant even begin to tell you why!
On paper my life looks great but you'll never know the written words are lies!

Pre-Chorus
Once again I'm at a point in my life where I hope to claim a piece of me.
Sometimes I feel like redemption is my enemy.

Chorus
My enemy x 4

Tired

Written By: 7th Cycle LLC

Verse
Last night I fell to earth
Screaming what is it all worth
While in the distance I see my past
And so many things I thought would last

Chorus
Oh I'm tired so tired x2

Verse
Why can't I just file my feelings away for one more day
I'm suffering inside
There's so many things that I can't hide

Chorus
Oh I'm tired so tired x2

Bridge
I wish there'd be another chance that would make this last one more dance
You know I can see the writing on the wall
Says all I know is about to fall

Chorus
Oh I'm tired so tired X4
This is the end
It can't be saved
Gone are the dreams
of the life we'd make

Small Town Drama

Written By: 7th Cycle LLC

Verse
She cries out loud maybe things just aren't that simple, as her tears are climbing down
She swears her soul is trapped in the middle of this dead end town

Pre-Chorus
and she's not ready to slow down

Chorus
I don't know how to help her
Or how to save the day
To me its small town drama
But to her its Life everyday, it’s everyday

Verse
It’s tough for me to watch her falling down, I often wonder what I might say
she's out grown all she wanted to become and I've never seen her act this way

Pre-Chorus
And she's beginning to hate the taste
She can't accept this is her fate

Chorus
I don't know how to help her
Or how to save the day
To me its small town drama
But to her its Life everyday, it’s everyday

Nothing's Changed

Written By: 7th Cycle LLC

Verse
Stop making excuses, on why one foots out the door.
Nothing’s changed, no nothing’s changed
I’m still the one you did, those things you never would before
Nothing’s changed, no nothing’s changed

Chorus
Nothing’s changed,
I’m still here
I won’t disappear.
Nothing’s changed,
I’m still here
I won’t disappear.

Verse
Just accept that I’m real and don’t be afraid to feel
Nothing’s changed, no nothing’s changed
I wanna go through Hell
And take on the world for you
Nothing’s changed, no nothing’s changed

Chorus
Nothing’s changed,
I’m still here
I won’t disappear.
Nothing’s changed,
I’m still here
I won’t disappear.

Bridge
I wanna go through Hell
And take on the world for you
I wanna go through Hell
No

Chorus
Nothing’s changed,
I’m still here
I won’t disappear.
Nothing’s changed,
I’m still here
I won’t disappear.

Watch You Burn

Written By: 7th Cycle LLC

Verse
I know I had your heart in my hands tonight
But still I walked away while it wanted to fight
I know I can't forget my past and where Ive been
But this road Ive traveled on has to come to an end

Prechorus
I lost all of my desire
And your the one to blame
So I set our past on fire
watched you inhale the flames

Chorus
I never thought it'd be so easy
To walk away and watch you burn watch you burn watch you burn
You made it all too easy
To walk away and watch you burn watch you burn watch you burn

Verse
I know deep down you understand why it went Like this
I Never meant to treat you bad or be the hypocrite
I tried to pretend everything would be ok
But inside I never really felt that way

Prechorus
I lost all of my desire
And your the one to blame
So I set our past on fire
watched you inhale the flames

Chorus
I never thought it'd be so easy
To walk away and watch you burn watch you burn
You made it all too easy
To walk away and watch you burn watch you burn watch you burn

Bridge
This is my sweet revenge
It goes well with all my sins

Beauty In My Silence

Written By: 7th Cycle LLC

I need to find something that will numb my tongue.
Something that will make all your feelings numb.
So you'll be desensitized to the sting
Immune to the poison my words are bound to bring.

Prechorus
You say you hear it screaming volumes at your soul.
But I don't know if you can handle much more.
But my silence will save you now.

Chorus
There is beauty in my silence.
It keeps our lives less violent.
I will not share.
We don't need fair.
It's yours to bear.
And I don't care.
There is beauty in my silence. x2

Verse
I can't help but to bite the hand that feeds me.
An attitude that's become my infectious disease.
You say you want me to approach this honestly.
Just realize anything you get from me it won't be free.

Prechorus
You say you hear it screaming volumes at your soul.
But I don't know if you can handle much more.
But my silence will save you now.

Chorus x2
There is beauty in my silence.
It keeps our lives less violent.
I will not share.
We don't need fair.
It's yours to bear.
And I don't care.

Bridge
If I confessed all of my sins.
Maybe you'd feel like you had a win.
If I confessed all of the truth.
Well maybe that's too much to lose.
That's too much to lose.

Chorus x2
There is beauty in my silence.
It keeps our lives.
It keeps our lives less violent.
I will not share.
We don't need fair.
It's yours to bear.
And I don't care.

Outro
It's yours to bear and I don't care.
It's yours to bear and I don't.
