In 2011, a shattering force comprised of diversified Heavy Metal veterans arose amongst the hills of California, rapidly emerging as new, refreshed musical project Attika 7. Poised to bludgeon up the charts past today's stark contemporaries, the fan-dubbed 'super group' is set to release their debut full-length album, 'Blood Of My Enemies' on July 30, 2012 with Ninetone/Membran in Europe.
Attika 7 features ex-Biohazard vocalist Evan Seinfeld, lead guitarist, notable songwriter and famed (Sons Of Anarchy) motorcycle builder Rusty Coones, and bassist Tony Campos, founding member of Static X, who also currently performs in Soulfly, Prong, Possessed, Asesino and Ministry. Attika 7 combines evil sounding riffs, melodic vocal lines, with old school guitar solos and undeniable grooves into a sonic frenzy of outlaw biker counter culture.

"As I embarked on my journey of musical and personal reinvention, the first step was to put together a band of incredible players, with diverse styles and a unified vision to write, record and perform timeless heavy metal, backed by an authentic outlaw lifestyle," states vocalist Evan Seinfeld.
The band recorded 'Blood Of My Enemies' with legendary producer Mudrock (Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack). 'Blood Of My Enemies' is a brutal slab of unrelenting hard rock, with the initial groundwork laid by guitarist Rusty Coones in the confines of a federal penitentiary. It was in this unforgiving environment that he penned the songs that would eventually become the band's uncompromising debut.
Vocalist Evan Seinfeld recently retired from Brooklyn's Biohazard, a band he formed in his teenage years. "After ten albums and probably around 4000 concerts with Biohazard across 90 countries spanning 25 years, all I can say is that the only thing constant in life is change, and without it, things can become stagnant and repetitious.
"The creative situation for me playing with Rusty and Tony in Attika 7 fosters my genuine creativity to flow, and allowed us to build something heavy, authentic, new and exciting from the ground up. Attika 7 is something I am beyond passionate about and so excited - 'Blood Of My Enemies' is THE album in my opinion."
Attika 7 will take to the road this summer with an 'in your face' live show combining all that is good in life: Bikes, Girls and Rock n Roll. Stay tuned for tour dates coming soon.
