Reformed British metal band SEVENTH ANGEL has issued the following update:
"We have signed for our third album with a label we will announce shortly and we are booked to record in a couple of weeks time at The Priory in Birmingham with Greg Chandler of ESOTERIC. The cover art will be provided by Matt Vickerstaff of Darkwave Art. We hope to release the album in April.
"We have two gigs booked, one in Belgium and one in Switzerland."
Video footage of SEVENTH ANGEL performing the song "Forbidden Desires" at the Nordic Fest 2008, which was held November 14-16 at Sub Scene in Oslo, Norway, can be viewed below.
SEVENTH ANGEL's current lineup is a mixture of the early and final lineup of the band before it split in 1992:
Ian Arkley (MY SILENT WAKE, PARAMAECIUM, CENTURY SLEEPER, THE OTHER WINDOW, ASHEN MORTALITY) - Vocals Guitar
Tank (SUK MUNKY, FREEKSPERT) - Drums
Simon Bibby (FIRE FLY, EXORIA, AMARANTH) - Guitar
Mark Broomhead (FIRE FLY, EXORIA, DETRITUS) - Bass
Each member of SEVENTH ANGEL has been on his own musical and spiritual journey since the split, and the reformation has produced a band of increased depth and maturity, with all the musical intensity that made SEVENTH ANGEL such an international success.
Before its split, SEVENTH ANGEL produced two highly acclaimed internationally released studio albums and continued interest in the band prompted the release of early demos and live recordings in 2005. Throughout its career, SEVENTH ANGEL was the focus of much media attention within the music press and beyond, having appeared on the BBC, Channel 4 and featured in the Daily Telegraph.
