I vividly remember the first time that I’ve listened to Seventh Calling. It was a few years ago when I grabbed a copy of the band’s debut (“Monuments”) for a review and I was pleasantly surprised by the sheer quality of the material and the energy of this American outfit (taken into consideration the fact that this was only their first musical endeavor). From that point on, up came a couple of EP releases and now we have in our hands the second full-length album entitled “Epidemic”. Don’t expect many variations from that early sound of theirs…US Metal with some Iced Earth and Vicious Rumors influences here and there and a touch of true metal aesthetic could be a good description of Seventh Calling’s “Epidemic”. The good thing is that the production is really, really powerful thus breaking the almost consistent rule of similar bands that display a mediocre sonic result. I am sure that with such tracks as “Paid In Blood” and “Death Dealer”, Seventh Calling are bound to make an important step towards the big league of Heavy Metal. We wish you all the best, guys. You deserve it!
Highlight: The band announced, recently, the inclusion in its ranks of ex-Pancho Villa singer, Rick Cox.
