Seventh Son


Year Formed


Seventh Son was put together by brothers Kev and Bri O'Shaughnessy in 1980.  The idea for Seventh Son was hatched in the King George Hotel in Barnsley, which in the 70's and 80's, was the hangout for Barnsley's 'different' crowd who listened to the pubs excellent jukebox pumping out Zeppelin, Purple, Floyd, Hendrix, Bowie, T-Rex, Pistols, Clash, Damned etc. The Punk explosion had stirred people into forming their own bands as Seventh Son became part of metal's answer to Punk 'The New Wave of British Heavy Metal' (or N.W.O.B.H.M).

The band's current line up of Bri, Rick Gregory, Dave Fox and Kev Lee on drums are currently still signed to German record label Iron Pages. The 2009 album 'Spirit World' can be heard and bought on our website and is also available to buy as vinyl, CD and download.

They have continued to play consistently since then and have built up a new following on social media. They are currently finishing off the recording for a brand new album to be released in 2016 after an initial single - 'Living On A Time Bomb' in September 2015 - they have just celebrated their 35th anniversary!
