OUT NOW! Drummer Sean Lang’s Prog Metal Project SEVEN YEAR STORM
‘Morphogenesis’ – Watch video here.
‘Dyatlov’ – Watch video here.
‘Dyatlov’ – Free Song Download here.
Limited Edition CD and digital order here.
Initially never planning to release his music compositions beyond the borders of just song writing, freelance drummer / instructor Sean Lang was urged by his circle of musician friends whom heard his material to take his creativity to the next level.
The outcome is Seven Year Storm, which showcases Lang’s unique sound, music arrangements written entirely by him plus guitarist Dean Lamb (Archspire) whom handles all of the mind-bending guitar leads and solos. Everything comes together into songs that are tight and heavy, melodic and groovy, technical yet memorable.
“I am very pleased to unleash the first installment of my musical vision, entitled Aion I. It is available for immediate download on Bandcamp, and is coming to all major digital distributors in the coming days and weeks, including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.

Aion II is already in a state of partial completion…the better Aion I does, the sooner you will get to hear Aion II !” comments Lang.

“Combining atmospheric keyboards and djenty rhythms, and adding a slight touch of jazz rock and loads of melody, this EP should definitely appeal to fans of modern progressive music….the musicianship and songwriting is top notch, and the production is also extremely professional for a self-released EP. The production nicely allows for the sweeping layers of sound to shine through in a balanced and harmonic way. I definitely hope to hear more from Lang in the future. “Aion I” should appeal to fans of Animals As Leaders, Chimp Spanner, and Planet X.” – Metal Music Archives
“…on this five song EP, you have not only some fluid, inventive modern metal but also one with a very strong focus on melody, ambient space, subtle uses of keyboards to add an orchestral touch to the album along with a damn good attempt at an emotional connection to the listener. Which is a very pleasant and welcome surprise when you hear that this is a drummer-led recording….I’m also very glad to see more exciting, very modern instrumental metal that is focused on composition and dynamics rather than super-fast shredding which has been so prevalent over the past few decades.” – Prog Metal Zone
“Aion I is instrumental metal with a rather video-gamey quality to it, in that it’s driven by very enigmatic melodies, and the music thrives on syncopated grooves and polyrhythms, with gorgeous leads and atmosphere. It’s captivating, the songs are concise, yet have a lot of substance. Aion I is the band’s first output, an EP, and it’s quite good if you’re into instrumental metal of any sort.” – No Clean Singing
“If you like instrumental rock with elements of metal mixed in, you’ve got it with Aion I. I really love the guitar solos in Nazca Lines, although the album as a whole leans more towards drums, the inspiration of drum instructor Sean Lang. The EP is a quick listen at five songs and it’s worth your time. And check out the video for the song Dyatlov!” – Metalhead Blog
