The reformed British metal band SEVENTH ANGEL has cancelled its previously announced October 4 concert at Hobbits in Weston-Super-Mare, UK "due to illness." The group says, "We are really sorry about this and hope we can get this rescheduled."
SEVENTH ANGEL is currently working on a new, as-yet-untitled studio album and is set to hit the festival circuit later this year. The band's first recording in 17 years, "The Turning Tide", was recorded at bassist Mark Broomhead's house and was produced and mixed by Mark and guitarist Simon Bibby. It was mastered by Jeff Mortimer at JM Mastering. Check it out at this location.
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.
