about

We recorded a lot of songs in the summer of 2006 and some of these had never seen the light of day... Here they are in a sweet little package just for you, our friends and fans..

We call our music DIAMOND ROCK because our music is hard, it's very shiny and it's a girl's best friend!!

HERE IS WHAT THE INDUSTRY THINKS ABOUT US:

“GLAM ROCK LIVES! These songs bring back the 70’s in all the good ways, a time when rock stars were rock stars…” -Moe Berg, The Pursuit Of Happiness

“A SUPERIOR SONGWRITER” -Chris Yurkiw, MONTREAL MIRROR

“THE NEXT BIG THINGS: THE SEVENATE” -Daniel Paquette, FAB

“The Sevenate’s CD contains 18 catchy Glam fuelled, Goth drenched songs.” -PULSE Niagara

GLAM BAM! On the hard edge of the spectrum from the up & coming Toronto band.” -XTRA

“That was a scorching set at The Bovine, an infusion of glam, rock, unleashed as a driving, hard-hitting spectacle. Eloha is a dynamic front-man, Hem is a power-riff machine, and the band was tight. This has restored my faith that rock and roll can be free-spirited and entertaining.”
-Lonely Vagabond

“The Sevenate are a veritable orgy of earthly delights!” -Queen Zorro, GRAPEVINE

“A great set at the Tranzac; When it comes to capturing the spirit of glam and hard-edged 70’s rock, The Sevenate completely delivered, with a flamboyant swagger and a dynamic tight-riffed spectacle; A passionate battle-cry that the music scene is as exciting as ever.“
-Lonely Vagabond

“THE SEVENATE
Chris Lee takes a bite outa the band scene once again. Formely heading up Montreal's Goth Rock sound Talamasca he breathes life in a new direction with The Sevenate. An assorted and obscure formula of glam. The Sevenate is sure to bend your ear. The band is currently accepting bookings for summer of 2007”. www.AtomAgeMedia.com

The Sevenate really kicked some major ass yesterday. The band was totally in its element at The Bovine. - www.bovinesexclub.com

THE SEVENATE with guests The Johnny's and Revmatic, Thursday Nov. 1st. 2007.
Proving once again that rock in Canada is as un-dead as ever with a memorable performance; Toronto's new darlings of diamond-hard rock The Sevenate strutted their stuff for the Halloween crowd at Rock N' Roll Heaven. Their high-octane balls-to-the-wall rock sound, catchy choruses and powerful stage presence captivated the audience that night… SNAP Downtown

…At Lee’s Palace, THE SEVENATE played a blistering set of originals, while closing with a dirty rendition of “Honky Tonk Women” leaving the town hot n’ bothered and ready for action. SNAP Downtown

The Queen ST. W. rave institution FUNHAUS held an all-ages Halloween extravaganza with THE SEVENATE and guests RETNA BURN and TAKING OUT MCKINLEY with burlesque queen PYNKY LOVE GODDESS; a Slamming night was reported by all in attendance. FAB Oct. 17, 2007

Possessing an anti-establishment, do it yourself vibe mixed with slightly twisted love songs, The Sevenate has created an unusual identity for themselves. Potential is definitely present but ultimately, 18 tracks on one CD are far too many. Aaron Small – BW&BK

Track Name: MATER NOSTER
MATER NOSTER

I'm madly, completely, utterly,
unwholesomely in love with you
In love with you

It's insidious and ravenous
I'm sorry but I'm hungry
what I want of you is ridiculous
I want you totally, devoutly, eternally
So may she be

Please baptise me and curse me
and take me to the mountain
Sacrifice me, but I'll be born again to your love

Ave Morgana, Ave Irina

In love with you
In love with you

Ave Morgana, Ave Irina

I pray to you my goddess,
on my knees, Mouth wide open
I drink at your fountain of love
I want fusion
So may she be
So may she be
So may she be
Track Name: JENNIFER OVER
JENNIFER OVER
Eloha, Ricky Lee 2003

Do I really need you?
Could I live without your love?
How long could I hold my breath for underwater?

Jennifer over, Jennifer Underwater
Don't be so hard on you, hard on me
A moon out of place on a bright sunny day
Jennifer never, Jennifer underwater

It’s not rational
This feeling that we’re toxic
But I’m emotional
And you keep trying to change the topic
It was a nice dream
But I guess we won’t visit the tropics


Your world is a better place
Without my addiction in it

Jennifer over, Jennifer underwater
Don’t be so hard on you, hard on me
Jennifer never, Jennifer underwater

Do I really need you?
Could I live without your love?
How long could I hold my breath for underwater?
As you learn to stand up
Please do pick your feet up
Girl you should not step upon
The smallest flower

Jennifer over, Jennifer underwater
Don’t be so hard on you, hard on me
Jennifer never, Jennifer underwater
Jennifer over, Jennifer underwater
Don’t be so hard on you, hard on me
Jennifer never, Jennifer underwater
Track Name: ON MY PLANET
ON MY PLANET
© Eloha, 2005

On your planet, I hear
People cry and you keep on walking
And there’s a price on everything
It’s like a bad movie
Planet of the monkeys

If you’re going to have world peace
Love now
Peace is a project, it’s not a dream
It’s now
Beautiful planet, Beautiful planet!

On your planet, I hear you still believe
In Santa and miracles
On my planet instead we understand
It’s up to us to make things better
Planet of the monkeys

If you’re going to have world peace
Love now
Peace is a project, it’s not a dream
It’s now
Beautiful planet, Beautiful planet!

Love now and not later
Love now, there is no later
On my planet we love
We say it all the time
On my planet we own nothing
We have everything
And we don’t fear our neighbors

Peace, now
Peace, now

If you’re going to have world peace
Love now
Peace is a project, it’s not a dream
It’s now
Beautiful planet
Beautiful planet
Track Name: IT ALL REVOLVES AROUND YOU (acoustic)
IT ALL REVOLVES AROUND YOU
Word and music: Eloha Bouchard © 1997

Without you the mood is grey
Without you my life is stale
Without you there is no day
Without you the sunlight feels so pale
And the night descends upon me like a veil
Funny how I seem to lose myself
How in the end

It all revolves around you, It all revolves around you
It all revolves around you, It all revolves around you

You put the blood in me
I’m only half of thee
You are vital to me
How in the end

It all revolves around you – I see my life in you
It all revolves around you – I see my eyes in you
It all revolves around you – Everything I love is you
It all revolves around you – How in the end

SOLO

You put the blood in me
I’m only half of thee
You are vital to me
How in the end

It all revolves around you – I see my life in you
It all revolves around you – I see my eyes in you
It all revolves around you – Everything I love is you
It all revolves around you – I’m losing faith in me
It all revolves around you – I lost autonomy
It all revolves around you – I’m losing sanity
It all revolves around you.
Track Name: TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT
TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT

Wo, oh, oh; Wo, oh, oh
Wo, oh, oh; Wo, oh, oh

You’re in my face
Breach my space
Steppin’ on my best foot

You got a deep grin
From the deep gin
Find another sucker, find another sucker

Gotta hold back your love, your sex.
You’re too damn lush for your own good

You’re:
Too close for comfort
Too close to me
So close together
I can smell your fear
Gotta hold back your love, your sex. You’re:
Too close for comfort
Close as close can be

Wo, oh, oh; Wo, oh, oh
Wo, oh, oh; Wo, oh, oh

You’re in my face
Breach my space
Steppin’ on my best foot

F.R.I.E.N.D
F.R.I.E.N.D

Too close for comfort
Too close to me
So close together
I can smell your fear
Gotta hold back your love, your sex. You’re:
Too close for comfort
Close as close can be

Too close for comfort
Too close to me
So close together
I can smell your fear
Track Name: HEART ON FIRE
HEART ON FIRE
Words: Drew Graham
Music: Eloha Bouchard

In a dream I saw her eyes
Shining as the stars in heaven
As she talked to me
From far away

Whispered verse from poet’s feather
Distant from the far horizon
Wisdom in the touch of angels
I hear her say

Take away the dark from the night
Only laughter
Distant places now in sight
I’m still standing alone
I got my

Heart on fire
Lost in desire
I want her
But I’m still standing alone

Woken from a deepest slumber
To a world without a border
Every kiss from you
I celebrate

If it’s time to re-define
Visit to a new dimension
Happiness is ours forever
Everyday

Take away the dark from the night
Only laughter
Distant places now in sight
I’m still standing alone
I got my

Heart on fire
Lost in desire
I want her
But I’m still standing alone
I got my
Heart on fire
Lost in desire
I want her
I’m still standing alone
Solo

Distant places now in sight
I’m still standing alone

Heart on fire
Lost in desire

Heart on fire (wooo)
Lost in desire (Wooo)
I want her
But I’m still standing alone
I got my

Heart on fire (wooo)
Lost in desire (Wooo)
I want her
But I’m still standing alone
I got my
Heart on fire
