AllMusic Review by

Supposedly, longtime Seven Witches leader/guitarist Jack Frost predicted that the group's seventh full-length overall would be its heaviest yet. It turns out that Nostradamus would have been mighty proud of ol' Mr. Frost, as 2007's Deadly Sins is one hard-hitting metal platter from beginning to end. And it also turns out to be one of the more thought-provoking Seven Witches releases yet, as the album appears to be based on Mahatma Gandhi's seven deadly sins (as evidenced by such song titles as "Science," "Commerce," "Worship," "Knowledge," "Pleasure," "Wealth," and "Politics"). With former Watchtower vocalist Alan Tecchio still in tow, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that a healthy amount of technical metal is on display throughout. Deadly Sins is probably the closest listeners will ever come to experiencing a heavy metal tribute to Gandhi. Too bad this album wasn't in the can when the acclaimed Gandhi movie was released in 1982 -- it would have made for one dandy soundtrack.
