Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, the band built a name for themselves through the Midwest with several live dates and their 2007 album Monuments on Melissa Records. Last year the core of the band, Steve Handel and guitarist Alex Ritchey relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada to team up with Avenger of Blood drummer Shannon Frye to complete the 'Prelude to Madness' EP, issued late 2009 by Heaven and Hell Records. The band's debut for the label has been met with rave reviews worldwide as anticipation grows for their second full length. With the addition of Marc Flores, also of Avenger of Blood, on bass the band entered at Sound Vision Studios of Las Vegas, NV on Feb. 15th with producer/engineer, Lance Swain. This will be the second time that the group has done work with Lance, who also did work with the band on their video 'Blood of the Divine' taken from the band's EP release 'Prelude to Madness' In mid-May 2010 Heaven and Hell Records released the Nevada powerhouse Seventh Calling's second full-length album 'Epidemic'. As the band has progressed the songs exhibit a more matured songwriting approach and deeper subject matter than previous offerings. With more developed arrangements for 'Epidemic' Seventh Calling has managed to still keep their known aggressiveness... one might say more aggressive than ever before. Like Metal Church, Vicious Rumors, Laaz Rockit, cage, and Dream Evil, Seventh Calling's 'Epidemic' will hit metal heads like a ton of bricks. ''Epidemic' is a killer album, the kind of metal that makes you want to move full force into any opposing object.' - Metalstorm Magazine 'Seventh Calling has definitely carved out their own sound. They're a vital part of the resurgence in traditional heavy metal here in North America,' - Hardrock Haven.
