New Album “Heal the Unhealed” Out November 7th
Seventh Station is a progressive metal band based in Slovenia, who are excited to announce their second album “Heal the Unhealed”. The record is an international effort – rehearsed and recorded through five different studios in three continents ranging from the United States, Slovenia, and Turkey. A new level of musicality and artistic expression blends magnificent sweeps, heavy riffs, and intricate melodies together, creating an eclectic proggy frame for personal topics.
The band comments on the album:
“After two years of delay due to the crazy pandemic, we are more than happy to release our new album “Heal the Unhealed” and share it with the rest of the world. This hidden gem was on the shelf way too long and its timing couldn’t be more appropriate. Reflecting on historical events and their psychologies through the album, we can see that history doesn’t change but repeats in variations, as the war in the east keeps raging in the present.”
In advance of the album’s official release on November 7th, Seventh Station has teamed up with AllAboutTheRock for its full-stream premiere.
Seventh Station expects that fans will be pleased with the latest offering, as compositionally, performance and production-wise they believe they have done some of their absolute best work to this day. Crafted meticulously, the band looks at it like a novel or a movie and suggests there’s a lot to discover even after the first pass of listening.
Seventh Station has put great effort into its compositions and performances, taking them to the next level with a wider palette of colors. From dreamy atmospheres to technical madnesses, it’s a musically diverse record. According to guitarist Dmitri Alperovich, the writing on the album and recording of it was his way to fight with the demons of his past and roots. “Heal The Unhealed” was mixed, and mastered by Matej Gobec at The Cosmosonic Studios, and the album artwork was done by Tal Asulin, it is recommended listening for fans of Opeth, Pain of Salvation, and Frank Zappa.
“Heal The Unhealed” will be available on November 7, 2022.

About: Seventh Station is a progressive metal band based in Slovenia, led by Israeli Guitarist Dmitri Alperovich and Turkish Keyboardist Eren Başbuğ. Constructing their sound by fusing progressive metal with contemporary classical music, the band’s new album Healed the Unhealed is their second full-length record, released independently. Featuring an international lineup, Davidavi “Vidi” Dolev (Vocals), Jure Lopatic (Bass), and Grega Plamberger (Drums). On their new record, Seventh Station adds to their “on the edge” performances and compositions more blood, more sweat, and more tears.
Formed between the Academy of Music & Dance in Jerusalem and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Seventh Station released its debut album Between Life and Dreams in 2016. After relocating to Europe and a few line-up changes, Alperovich and Başbuğ knew no borders in the search for uncompromising compositions and musical executors, progressive and challenging. After several tours between the Middle East and post-Yugoslavia, the band gathered together on recording ‘Heal the Unhealed’. Inspired by the Second World War and the Soviet Union, the album is an hour-long reflection in the eyes of Alperovich, who was born in Minsk, Belarus, moved to Israel and eventually found his way to Slovenia. Featuring surrealistic epos, harnessing the band’s skillful abilities in order to express Kafkaesque situations, Heal the Unhealed examines resemblances between dictatorships and the personality disorders of an artist.
Seventh Station is now gearing up for their upcoming record Heal the Unhealed released on November 7th, 2022, along with a supporting tour through Europe and the Middle East, to be announced later this Fall.

“This album creates and destroys barriers, making a point to invoke drama about the Second World War. The band has explored every aspect of orchestration in the form of King Crimson and dements the Frank Zappa sound that bombards the listener. They present complex arrangements and deep intricate movements. These are both alienating and perfect forms of musical momentum. Each phase has been constructed by the composer to invoke the sonic dissonance of the Stalin era of the Soviet Union.” – Caved Weller Music
“The guys definitely show that they are a very up-and-coming, well-thought-out Progressive Metal band”. – MetalUnderground.at
“Between Life and Dreams is not a typical progressive metal album, in its musical structure the listener can find elements of classical music and find intensive, delicate motive work in each song”. – Lady Obscure
“This is a combination of old and new influences, including those from musicians that are classically trained. This results in music that has a lot going on, with so many different styles involved that it would be pointless to try and list them all” – Wonderbox Metal
“Many of their creations are inspired from classical music compositions in which they mix their own virtuoso inputs of modern and progressive metal. Believe me, the album will open your ears fully and lead you into the magical world of fantasy between two worlds, the reality and the dreams.” – Paranoid Webzine
