about

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

This is the first one, featuring some of the mainstays of our live shows. I'd rather let other wonderful people rave about us rather than toot my own horn:

“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: COMING TO
COMING TO
How I lived in the past, the moment stood still
It hung around my head in shades
For the longest time I didn’t care about the nows
I was on pause….on then
It was so beautiful, so pretty
Never can say goodbye, now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come to

The trip home isn’t so grey now
Is it even there?
Your lips are permanently printed on
My heart, my soul and my mind
It was so wonderful, so sexy
Never can say goodbye, now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come too

SOLO
Coming to, Coming to
It was so beautiful, so sexy
Never can say goodbye now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come to
You come

Track Name: BE ALL WE CAN'T BE
BE ALL WE CAN’T BE

Born with a plastic spoon
Adults are much too busy
Father loves a PC more than me

Who wants to be a victim?
We give but are not given
We take but are not taken seriously

By some weird twist of fate
Youth is wasted on the young

Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out how to
Be all we can’t be

A woman’s liberation
A man who was always free it seems
A land of liberty, but no one ever told me
Are we supposed raise our parents?
It’s not me who said that we should
Reach for the stars, follow our dreams and

Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out

Solo

By some weird twist of fate
Youth is wasted on the young

Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out how to
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out how to
Be all we can’t be
(Ontario!)
Track Name: ORGASM
ORGASM

Welcome pussycat!
Welcome to the new world
I remain faithful
Faithful to my harem

Everybody knows practice makes perfect

There’s no place for
Jealousy in a perfect world

Monosexual versus Stereosexual

Orgasm. Orgasm
Orgasm. Orgasm

Going down on
A lover is like eating a rose
Or drinking a rainbow
I wish my parents had taught me so

Or a sexy teacher in a school by Sappho

Orgasm. Mono can get boring in a while
Orgasm. Stereo’s cool but I dig surround
Orgasm. Mono can get boring in a while
Orgasm. Stereo’s cool but I dig surround… Sound!

(Bridge)

Voodoo!
It's Vaudou!

Orgasm. Mono can get boring in a while
Orgasm. Stereo’s cool but I dig surround… Sound!
Orgasm.
Orgasm.

Orgasm!

SISTER JEZEBELLE
© Eloha 2005

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle

Pregnant like a silence
A silence speaking measures
Naked like a violence
Fear of overt pleasures

Pop, pop, pop, pop…

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle

Very still in the mean time
Courtroom drama unfolds
A brute we tried to tell you
But words you could not hold

Pop, pop, pop, pop…

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle


Baby come back, come back
Baby come back, now

Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle
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: PAINT THE TOWN
PAINT THE TOWN

Marylin’s legs, graffitis in the subway, pink clouds on a wall
Queen and the annex, kids in the sun, automatic brainwash

Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town

(improvised)

Goin’ downtown now, running down the streets, electric stop sign, stop!
Go on blinded by colors, automatic brainwash

(Bridge)

Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Track Name: PIGGY LIKES
PIGGY LIKES

Piggy thinks you want him all the time.
Piggy thinks you like it when you’re down
Piggy sees a hole, he doesn’t see a heart
Because it’s all he’s got, he doesn’t have a heart

Except for his mother, his sister or his daughter

Piggy sees a fine pair, he doesn’t see a mind
He sees meat and he sure knows the kind he likes
Piggy likes to think he owns the key
Piggy likes to use you…

As if she didn’t feel. As if she didn’t cry
As if being a woman meant living on your knees
As if she didn’t feel. As if she didn’t cry
As if being a woman meant living on your knees

Piggy thinks you want him all the time.
Piggy thinks you like it when you’re down
Piggy likes to think he owns the key
Piggy likes to use you…

Piggy thinks you want him all the time.
Piggy thinks you like it when you’re down
Piggy sees a hole, he doesn’t see a heart…
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
Track Name: IT ALL REVOLVES AROUND YOU
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: SO BEAUTIFUL
SO BEAUTIFUL

One, two, three, four
As I fly over land and sea
As I want your intimacy
Your beauty is immortal
Adorn yourself with shiny things
You’re

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive

Ballerina grace incarnate
The way you smile and stare at me
The way you love and please me
My greatest mortal fantasy
You’re

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive

You’re alive, you’re alive, you’re alive!

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me (And it doesn’t get better)
More beautiful to me (Now even more than ever)
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me (And it doesn’t get better)
More beautiful to me (Now even more than ever)
Than anything I know,

One, two, three, seven!
Track Name: GO FIGURE
GO FIGURE
© Eloha, 2005

A 100, 1000, 1000 000 women out there
All beautiful, compatible
But it’s the sight of you that weakens my resolve
Go figure, whatever

I don’t really know
How it happened
Somehow here we are
In the right place
Your heart beats in the right space

Your beautiful sister always sat between us
Edible, yeah desirable
But it’s the love you do that makes my heart dissolve
Go figure, forever

Odds are seven to one
Seven billion to one
That two perfect lovers are to meet

Be the first to say it
It’s okay to state the obvious
Against all odds

You are the life of my love
You are the life of my love
My love, my love

Across the sea of indifference
That separates us
We are H2O so lonely

Let us cross the great divide
And be lonely together

Odds are seven to one
Seven billion to one
That two perfect lovers are to meet

Be the first to say it
It’s okay to state the obvious
Against all odds

You are the life of my love
You are the life of my love
You are the life of my love
You are the life of my love
My love, my love, go figure

A 100, 1000, 1000 000 people out there
Wonderful, compatible
Yeah it’s the sight of all of you
That makes me want to live
Forever, go figure
