Please tell us a few words about the new release, about the music on it as a whole or a few words on each track in part. How are you happy with the final release?
"Battle Call is the title of our latest release and this also is the 3rd full length disc from Seventh Calling. Basically Battle Call is a solid album filled with song after song of hooks and catchy riffs that sort of make Seventh Calling stand out with our style so to speak. We are very happy with this release from the material on it to the overall image and production with the packaging and sound."
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
"The new release Battle Call, is a solid heavy metal release that calls to the traditional side of heavy metal. Melodic with hard hitting riffs and harmonies intertwined with a tinge of 'rock' and also a bit of a modern twist. Giving Seventh Calling an original style of sorts".
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
"Halo Horn Studios is where we recorded with Andy Van Guilder and Joey Callahan for Zuni Worldwide at the controls. We spent approximately 7 days on the project for recording anyway, and then some time on the actual production and mixing. The biggest surprise was the fact that recording went very smooth and everything worked! HA!"
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics?
"The artwork was done by Rainer Kalwitz and is basically meant to be just a cover with the main focus being on Seventh Calling, our symbol and the title 'Battle Call'. Not really anything of a link between the cover and the release other than tying our name and symbol together with the title. The topics that we deal with on this album range from happenings in the news to revenge to simple heavy metal anthems and sci fi. Kind of a mixing pot of many different topics."
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
"Our hope is to get to a larger fan base to be heard of and to help spread the word that this style of heavy metal is alive and well which brings us to the next point. Which is, the next goal of our next release as we begin to work on new material for our follow up to 'Battle Call'."
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
"It is in both CD and digital format."
Where and how will you promote this new release?
