SEVENTH CALLING Completes Work On 'Blood Of The Divine' Video

Las Vegas metallers SEVENTH CALLING have completed work on a video for the song "Blood of the Divine". The clip was shot and produced by Lance Swain and will be included — along with wallpapers and new recordings of several songs — on the group's new EP, entitled "Prelude to Madness".

"Prelude to Madness" was produced by Kirk Moll and SEVENTH CALLING and is scheduled for release October 27 via Heaven and Hell Records. The EP contains material that was originally recorded for the band's unreleased "Deliverance" album but which was scrapped by group's mainman, Steve Handel. He explained the decision to abandon the original recordings by saying, "After the ['Deliverance'] album (never under contract with any label) was completed, the following days of listening are what made my ultimate decision. Performances were weak, and the direction was incorrect for us. I regrouped, made some adjustments to the lineup, and we recorded some of the songs again, with Kirk Moll at his studios in Las Vegas."

He added, "'Prelude' is just an offering of the direction that SEVENTH CALLING will follow in the sessions for the next album."

The recording sessions for SEVENTH CALLING's next full-length album, "Epidemic", will begin before the end of the year.
