"Disc News - Music Notes and Reviews (June 2004)"

SUTURE SEVEN "SUTURE SEVEN" (Sarx Records) From the shadows of Three Mile Island, Harrisburg industrial/gothic rockers Suture Seven have been a work in progress. Their first two albums, 1999's "Aversion" and 2002's "A Stitch to Mark the Wound", were experimental and abstract in nature, and required several listens to fully grasp the group's vision and concept. Suture Seven's self-titled third album, though, is the group's most focused and accessible effort to date. The album's eleven songs (plus bonus track) are more direct and to the point, and the melodies' connections are more immediate. Yet Suture Seven -singer/guitarist Michael Zucker, guitarist/programmer Elton Nestler, guitarist Gregory Marshall, bassist Amber Ortega and drummer Jamie Gibson - sacrifice none of their musical adventurism in the process of streamlining their sound; if anything, they have brought it more into focus. The group still experiments with varying textures of electronica and digital effects, layering of voices and guitar flavors, percussion styles and more. A number of songs here fuse dance floor electronica with a grinding, distortion-laden metallic edge. But Suture Seven’s effective use of varying textures, tones, sudden breaks and plot twists prevent songs like "Apparatus of Demise," "Exsanguinate," "Forever," "Suffice," "Echoed" and "Macrocosm" from being predictable, repetitive or routine. The group explores more shadowy, less abrasive textures on "Fractured," "Cold" and "Resistance;" dabbles in Lizard King-styled psychedelic poetry on "Salvation on Spiders Legs," and conjure an neo-Addams Family-flavored gothic soundscape on "Wither." Suture Seven lives on the dark side, with Michael Zucker's often twisted, distorted and angst-ridden vocals examining themes of pain and betrayal, broken souls, appeasement of personal demons and more. On their self-titled album, Suture Seven has arrived, further defining their own unique cyber-geared domain, and demonstrating their mastery of it. This is their strongest set thus far, and could be the album that elevates them from techno-rock curiosity to a wider audience and appeal.

"Review of the latest SUTURE SEVEN release"

SUTURE SEVEN have outdone themselves with their latest self-titled release. This album almost seems to have no affiliation or connection to any of their previously released albums - "Aversion" and "A Stitch To Mark The Wound"." Perhaps with more experience, time and fresh new influences of a brand new lineup, SUTURE SEVEN have metamorphosed into an all around better band. Their sound has evolved into an outstanding cutting edge industrial-pop-dance-goth blend with dark and intelligent lyrics (almost like poetry). I'm impressed by the production quality on this album in comparison to their past albums - the vocals are crisp and clear, the instrumentation has been perfected (especially in the "electronic" department) and it's overall an amazing album. I'm sure! all SUTURE SEVEN fans will be ecstatic to pick a copy of this album up, it's sure to also please those that like the electro-goth style of music. This album runs along the lines of bands like Carbon 9, Encounter Box, Bella Morte (to some extent), Flesh Fair, Intricate Unit, BabyDoll Johnson, Liquid Sex Decay etc. Rating: 10+/10 - By Wednesday Elektra - Space Junkies Magazine
