Within a few weeks, the first formation of the band was completed.
„ Max Roxton“ Vocals/Rhythm Guitar, „Daniel Gravel“ Drums, „Manex Plessberger“ Bass and „Josi Suckard“ Lead guitar.
In Oktober 2016 the recordings for their debut album „Stronger in the End“ started. After a few weeks of looking for a studio that would fit for their sound, they decidet to record their album at „Studio Suiseidl“ in Rosenheim/Bavaria.
„Philip Seidl“ the engineer and ower of the studios, worked as a Co-Producer together with Max. At the beginning of the three weeks lasting recording process, Manex and Josi left the Band, because of different goals and intentions. So the recordings have been done by Max and Daniel.
Right after the work was finished, the two new and final members joined in.
„ Bo Jahson“ at the Bass/ Back up Vocals and „ Daniel Davis“ at the Lead guitar/ Back up Vocals.
The influences of the band comes from many different genres and bands like: Foo Fighters, Tool, Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, Killswitch Engage, Disturbed, Nickelback, Creed and many more. The sound is defined by hard metal riffs, combined with very melodic lead and back up vocals, rhythmic bass lines and pounding beats and breakdowns. The different styles of the four members is one of the very interessting elements of 7 Mazes. As „Daniel Gravel“ and „Max Roxton“ grew up with hard rock and metal, „Bo“ and „Daniel Davis“ did a lot of Jazz, funk, blues, reggae and psychadelic rock.
Their first ablum „Stronger in the End“ was released on May 26th in 2017 at „Roxton Records“, which is the selftitled lable of „Max Roxton“.
