An English musician and producer living in Oslo, Norway, Kyle Sevenoaks is primarily known for working in the metal and industrial electronic genres. Focusing on extended range instruments, and intertwining them with heavy industrial influenced electronic elements, Sevenoaks releases music on a DMCA SAFE basis for streamers and content creators.

Away from his main band, I, the Betrayer, where he is chiefly responsible from writing and studio duties, and has recieved acclaim across the rock media, Kyle has also been invited to perform at TwitchCon in both the US and Europe and is endorsed not only by Spector Basses and Winspear Instrumental, but also the Trve Kvlt Coffee company.

However, a combination of rare eye diseases make life difficult for Sevenoaks and it is during one particularly painful episode that the musician wrote his new song, “Tear Them Out” which you can check out here.

Expanding on the difficulties his condition causes, Kyle explains: “I suffer from a combination of rare eye diseases that make life difficult, to say the least. This song was written during a particularly painful flare-up where I was extremely sensitive to light and the pain was pretty bad. I tend to express myself through playing bass or guitar and this time I grabbed my new 9 string and went to town on it for hours. The main riff came out and I sat down in my very dimly lit studio and started piecing together the rest of the parts and instrumentation of the song. A few days later I was done and feeling much better about my situation.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
