Seventh Seal: a band with a sound so ferocious and pounding, it stands apart
from the norm, its lyrical messages of hope and positivity dovetailing
beautifully with the music, providing a duality that is rare in the heavy-metal
genre. Their music is charting extremely well on Internet and independent radio,
with two songs, "Forsaken" and "Martyr," reaching 1, ahead of such bands as
Underoath, As I Lay Dying, Project 86, and P.O.D.
Nathan Heavel (bass, backing vocals), Josh Clark (lead vocals, rhythm guitar)
and Mark Mathias(drums) came together in 2002 to form Seventh Seal. They began
writing material that would become the basis for the band? 2003 debut album.
Joe Begly(lead guitar, backing vocals) joined the band in the spring of 2003 and
Seventh Seal then set about recording its hard-rock/metal album in the fall,
working with award-winning producer Travis Wyrick.
In 2005 the band took on a new musical direction, exploring the genre of metal
and hard rock, and recording an EP.
Seventh Seal has become a touring force in the Mid-Atlantic States, drawing
large crowds at major rock venues, including The Recher Theatre, Fletchers,
Sonar, The House of Rock, The Thunderdome, Jaxx, Stingers and the Funk Box. The
band also has enjoyed national attention, being featured in the magazines HM and
Relevant, both in articles and on compilation samplers.
As 2006 drew to a close, Seventh Seal added guitarist Justin Gosnell
(Vestascension) to their line-up to further diversify their sound thus allowing
lead singer Josh Clark more freedom to interact with their fans during their
shows. The new line-up has been performing to rave reviews. The band, now a
five-piece, is busily promoting the release of their very first National Debut
due out in April of 2008.
