Maryland based rock/metal band SEVENTH SEAL is back in 2014 with a brand new album, a new sound, and a new identity. The band is starting a fresh chapter in their career, more focused than ever, now with a new line up and the release of their most ambitious work to date.THE GHOSTS OF WHAT WE ARE is a diverse and musically involved album; one that closely bridges the genres of rock and metal, yet still stands on its own in originality and presentation. With this new material, Seventh Seal has branched out and broken free from all of their past formulas and styles, exploring more progressive elements in their sound. Aggressive yet melodic, catchy yet uncompromising, the album's twelve songs take the band in a new direction while consistently displaying the musicianship and powerful lyrical themes that they have always been known for.The central theme of the album focuses on the changes we face and live through during our time here - "The Ghosts Of What We Are", in this case, representing the shadows of our former selves that still resonate within us, even as we continue to grow. Deeds, feelings, and memories that follow us through our path in life, both haunting and encouraging us along the way.

Seventh Seal: 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’s 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. Soon after the EP was completed, Mark Mathias stepped down as drummer but continued as the band’s manager. Tim Warner, a drummer who had worked previously with Nathan and Josh, joined the band in February of 2006.

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 writing and plans to release its sophomore album sometime in late 2007.

Seventh Seal is a band that is different. This band is a group of men who have devoted their lives to searching for what it means to show honesty and integrity in a world diseased with lies. Never making claims of perfection, Seventh Seal is about living lives that can make this world a better place.
