Thunder - The Magnificent Seventh
Imported from Italy
1990 saw the release of their critically acclaimed debut album "Backstreet Symphony" on EMI ( in UK, Capitol & then Geffen in the US). This year also saw a cracking European tour with Heart as well as their now famous performance in the opening slot at the Donington Monsters Of Rock Festival (crowd 80,000). No one who witnessed it will ever forget it. "Backstreet Symphony" sold 250,000 copies in the US, due to "Dirty Love" achieving 6 weeks at number 1 on Dial MTV. A combination of the onset of grunge and record label inertia meant this was as far as it went.
During the first 10 years they were together, Thunder notched up an incredible 18 top 40 singles in the UK. Not bad for a band that were hardly ever played on British radio. This was mostly down to the stoic loyalty of the Thunder fans who never failed to show up for tours. Proof positive (as if any were needed) of the consistently high quality of the band's live show. Having become disillusioned and frustrated, they split up for 2 years, only to be lured back for the special guest spot at 2002's UK Monsters Of Rock Tour, where the band's passion was well and truly re-ignited. The tour was a resounding success for them.
The Magnificent Seventh by Thunder comes with powerful riffs, soaring melodies and sheer classic rock stamped all over it.
Take a listen! There's almost an HOUR's Worth of GREAT music.
