Seventrain performed together for the first time in the fall of 2012 in San Diego, California at a memorial show for the late Vincent John Crudo, (otherwise known as “Big Vinnie”), who was a respected local sound technician and bass player in the Southern California area. Guitarist Eric Horton, who had previous worldwide success with his former power metal band Cage, assembled some admired local musicians to play a handful of cover songs at the memorial show. Shortly after this performance, the guys sat down and decided to record an album of material that guitarist Eric Horton and vocalist Jon Campos had been working on. Eric recruited former 24-7 Spyz (Atlantic Records) drummer Joel Maitoza to produce and play drums on the recordings along with guitarist Jef Poremba (Coffi Baker...yes, Ginger Baker's son, 6ONE9), Greg Rupp on bass (My Middle Finger, 6ONE9) and singer/songwriter, Jon Campos. After a few months of fine tuning the songs, they started hammering out arrangements and vocal harmonies. By the end of 2012 they were ready to start recording the debut album at DML Studios with engineer Don Lithgow (Blink 182, New Found Glory) lovingly tracked in analog on 2” tape.
