Saturday 27th May 1989 saw Seventh Angel's live debut, I was there and boy it was a stormer.  Now, at last they've made the recording their growing legions of fans have been waiting for. This four song EP was produced and engineered by Paul Hodson,(ex Magnum, ex Uriah Heep) and spits fire.  First up is "Forbidden Desires" which talks of the fall of man. It's thrashy and features a weird break by lead guitarist Ian Arkley.  "Seven Angels" moves into doom for the first verse then leaping into thrash for the second onwards.  One of the most noticeable changes in the band is the drumming, Tank's excellent double-kick is enough to cave your rip cage. The second part of "Seven Angels" sees a return for the more doomy side of the band and highlights Ian reading from Revelation 15:5-8.  "I Of The Needle" as the name suggests deals with drugs and has an acoustic ending which helps highlight Simon Bibby's solid bass. The closer "Heed The Warning" in my mind is the best yet, brilliant lyrics a superb arrangement and a vicious guitar solo.  Probably the best British white metal you'll hear before Seventh Angel's full album due out later this year.
