More details will be forthcoming as the group continues to forge on. Delivering the metal hammer to the masses.
US based Seventh Calling has officially started the artwork process for their next release. "After meeting with artist Mike Stauffacher for the initial start, there were quite a few really good ideas thrown out, and after a couple of sketches, we can tell you that this is going to look great", states the group. This will mark the 5th album overall by Seventh Calling, and will be the groups first effort since the release of EPIDEMIC in mid 2010 via Heaven and Hell Records worldwide.
What a great show over this past weekend! It was real good to get the whole band together again onstage live. A precursor to us getting together for studio rehearsals on the new material for our next album. Great to perform songs like Dark Angel and My Blood with Tom Croxton once again! Myself and Tom have never been able to do these songs together live on stage until this year. That is the way the ball bounces! But great to be working with him again here as we pound out the new songs. I personally cannot wait to hear songs like BATTLE CALL and IN RAGE once they hit their finished state. Many more than just those however!!!
At any rate, there will be some new artwork on the upcoming album soon.. Not going to say very much yet about it!!! In the meantime, please enjoy the live videos

As I sit here, watching the snow fall outside my window, I patiently await the passing of 2012 into the new era of 2013. Many interesting things have taken place over this past year. Not only in my personal life, but also with Seventh Calling.
Not only did Calling perform with many greats, such as: Michael Schenker, Heretic, Benedictum, just to name a few.....SC was also lucky enough to have been involved in the local Las Vegas, NV scene. Vile Child, Avenger of Blood, Shrapnull, Heavy Honey are some of the great bands from the area that Calling hit the stage with many times over. A great time indeed for the Seventh Calling project.
In regards to personal life, 2012 would also see a move back across the states to the midwest where I had originally lived. Now that things have progressed in a favorable direction after being back for 6 months, I can honestly say that I am happy to be back home, and looking forward to 2013 in great fashion.
2013 for Seventh Calling means that, finally, after many negotiations, dead end delays, non-conformists so to speak, when it comes to agreeing on the direction of a project and so on, there will be a new record. WOOOHOOO!!! I must jump in crazy happiness. Anyhow, moving on..... I am very happy with this news, and I am very happy with the musicians that I have assembled for the next Seventh Calling record. This effort is going to be a call to true heavy metal, complete with Seventh Calling's own brand. BE PREPARED!! As we 'DELIVER THE METAL HAMMER'.
Thank you all for your continued support.
