“Early 90’s Seventh Angel is a UK thrash band that wedded speed metal with doom and gloom and the irresistible vocals of elite frontman Ian Arkley. The iconic debut, The Torment, offers emotion-packed songs with lyrics that promise eternal suffering to the unrepentant (“Tormented Forever”) while “Expletive Deleted” encourages Christians to clean up their language. Originally released on The Edge Music/Kingsway Music in the UK, the album found its way to the US through Pure Metal Records in 1990. The Torment offers high quality thrash that rivaled anything in the mainstream or Christian markets. Seventh Angel’s debut masters the art of big, thick, crunchy guitars with doomy thrash vocals. Considering the quality of the album, and the unique sound of Seventh Angel, it didn’t take long for the band to garner a large and loyal fan base. Seventh Angel produced some serious magic on this album, concocting some dark, artistic thrash metal that floored metalheads with the band’s ability to wrap a clever melody in a tasty wall of distortion! The album would eventually make the HM Magazine Top 100 Metal Albums Of All Time at number 51. And, of course, the brilliant cover art was created by famed British fantasy artist Rodney Matthews. The 2018 Retroactive Records re-issues have been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell at Bombworks Sound and with full band approval. CDs are packaged in a jewel case with a 12-page insert featuring amazing band pics, a write up to fans from Ian Arkley and lyrics. After being re-issued several times, we can definitively say the album has never looked or sounded better! For fans of Sabbat, Trouble, Vengeance Rising, Believer, Detritus, Deliverance, Metallica and Exodus.″ -Retroactive Records
