Dark and haunting sounds from the Swedish woods
A lot has happened since The Magnificent Seven took their first steps in 2003.

and started to find their ownsound.
“-If you’re planning a ball that is to be held in a ghost-town there’s a perfect
soundtrack for you: ‘A Salesman of Death’ by The Magnificent Seven.” Sepiachord.com
With their EP “Welcome to the Broken-Hearted Show”, released in 2008, the band
had reached a new level in their quest to find their own unique sound. Dark, twisted
lyrics about wolves, the Devil and death accompanied by bittersweet string arrangements
and haunting sing-a-long choruses.
Their sound has sometimes been described as dark cabaret, eerie melancholic folk music,
and sinister circus or as Myspace Sweden said; “The Magnificent Seven’s matchless sound
is a blend of perfect pop melodies, cabaret and French chansons.”
During 2008 they also got all sorts of attention from media both in Sweden and abroad.
They got rewarded by Myspace Sweden as one of Sweden’s hottest new acts and also got
named ”Band of the week” in local radio. They also got good reviews in music blogs all
over the world and had their songs played in radio in Sweden, Serbia, Holland,
Great Britain and USA. The bands song ”The Last Waltz” was also featured on the
Sepiachord Field Guide Volume 1, together with songs from bands like Walter
Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys, The Hellblinki Sextet and Curtis Eller.s American Trio.
In 2008 and 2009 they played a lot of live shows and that.s where the band really comes alive.
With their acoustic instruments, dynamic sound and punk energy they can mesmerize and
entertain the crowd at both theatres and noisy rock clubs.
In the beginning of 2009 the band entered Studio Cobra in Stockholm to record their
debut album ”The Broken Hearted Show” that will be released on October 31st 2010!
The album was recorded and produced by Christian Gabel, known from his own
project 1900 and for his drumming with Thåström, Ossler and Bob Hund. Then the album
was mastered in California by Martin Irigoyen from Vernian Process.
Now The Magnificent Seven is ready to spread their dark and haunting sounds all over the world.
So welcome to The Broken Hearted Show!
