Biography

Piteå, Sweden (2005 – present)

Seven Nautical Miles is an ambient / band from Piteå, Sweden, spawning from a band Machinery of Suffering in 2005.

Citing , , , and as the primary influences, they create a sound similar in vein - but also very different - to bands such as Rosetta, Cult of Luna, and Isis, with their own unique take on it all. 2008 saw the release of their first album Every Ocean Reversed, mastered by Magnus Lindberg from Cult of Luna.
__________________________

Seven Nautical Miles was formed in 2005 by guitarist Simon Wärja and drummer Johan Nordlund in the north of Sweden when the interest for their band ended. They wanted to make something different, something with greater emotions than the past pig-kicking could evoke. After a few rehearsals their long time friends Mikael Holmberg and Robert Holmström which played guitar and bass showed their interest. Robert shared the same taste and visions, and Mikael felt like a natural step, since he and Johan had been partners in crime for a long time. SNM still needed a vocalist. Dag Falkman had made a good impression on the guys in SNM, playing in various / acts, after one rehearsal Dag got the gig completing the symbiosis. Under the name Oceans Have No Memory they recorded a demo. The future looked good…

Only after a few shows Dag moved south leaving the band without a singer, but as a gentleman as Dag is, he introduced SNM to his friend Mathias Öystilä, singer in the great Luleå act Re Vera. SNM had seen Mathias playing with Re Vera so they knew he was perfect to replace Dag.

    I've been listening to their 'opus prime' since 2 years by now (at least 2 time a month). At first, I simply could not endure their gritty sound along with the off-key screamed vocals. But, since this album has growed in me a lot, I could grasp their sounding beauty. Vocals are definitely an adquired taste. So guys, don't be discouraged by the vocals, just try to feel the music as a whole.

    Every Ocean Reversed is remarkably heavy, complex and competent atmospheric sludge metal! I'm looking forward to what this band does in the future.

    Vocals remind me of a depressive black metal band mixed with sludge.

    Good music but the vocal is real shit.. It's an easy way if you don't have voice - just scream.)))

    Loving the instrumental side of this music, but the vocals sound terrible. Just my opinion, not to be taken seriously. Peace.

    The vocals aren't meant to be artistic, they are just another texture to the music. It's no problem if you don't like it, but it shouldn't be surprising that some people do. Think of the vocals more as another instrument rather than how you would normally think of them.
