Seven Doors is a one man horror-themed Death Metal band from the South West of the UK, whose name is inspired by the name of the hotel in the Lucio Fulci film, The Beyond. Ryan Wills, the sole writer and instrumentalist, began the project in the first half of 2020 shortly after the global pandemic started. Ryan’s vision was to combine his passion for 70’s and 80’s horror films with his love of 90’s Death Metal. Many of the lyrics are directly inspired by films like City of the Living Dead, Re-animatior, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Beyond and more, while his musical influences stem from acts like Death, Gorguts, Asphyx, Malevolent Creation and Cannibal Corpse.
The band’s debut, The Gates of Hell EP, was released in early 2021 on Redefining Darkness Records (Cassette) & Cavernous Records (CD) which was quickly followed up by a split with 2 other UK bands, Goat Witch and Born Undead (digital only). ‘Feast of the Repulsive Dead’ is comprised of 10 songs that expand upon on what they have achieved thus far and have taken everything to the next level of horror. To deepen the tie between his two loves, Ryan enlisted horror aficionado, Slasher Dave, to create an intro for the album while recruiting Chris and Mike of Skeletal Remains and Paul of De Profundis to lend some guitar leads to some tracks. ‘Feast of the Repulsive Dead’ is a banger of a record that will certainly grab the attention of Death Metal enthusiasts worldwide.
