7th Order is an American progressive rock & roll band whose debut "extended play" CD release, The Lake of Memory, was issued on the Big Island Sounds label in 2007 (although 7th Order had been together for several years by that time). The band has, at various times, been assisted by veteran British guitarist Martin Pugh (of Steamhammer, "The Rod Stewart Album", and Armageddon), drummer Tim Kelliher (of Randy Hansen's Machine Gun), and legendary American rock guitarist Geoff Thorpe (of Vicious Rumors). Reviewers have recognized their particular sound as reminiscent of blues-rock bands like The Rolling Stones & The Yardbirds, with progressive undertones ala Led Zeppelin.
The band's web site references the release of a new compilation/career retrospective "mixed media" CD titled "The Initiate's Journey, 2003-13" - which is currently being featured on numerous radio stations around the world.
