Getting started in 1985 while initially under the name Revelation, Norway's Seventh Seal was founded by the talented guitar team of Geir T. Ugland and Geir Knutson. After spending the next several years in rehearsal, the band recruited American born vocalist Mark Bjorvant in early 1987 prior to recording its first demo tape and making its debut live performance the summer of the same year. A second demo was put together in the spring of 1988 with the resulting airplay leading to a contract with the Dutch label CNR. However, when it was discovered another band on the label was also using the moniker Revelation a permanent name change was made to Seventh Seal. Seventh Seal proceeded to record its full length debut, Messengers Of Love, in July/August 1988 at Loud Level Studios in Hamar, Norway but CNR, for reasons unknown, refused to release it. Undaunted, Seventh Seal pressed on and continued to play live shows until the summer of 1989 when the studio decided to put out the album on its own label, Loud Level Records, a year later. By this time Seventh Seal had broken up, and the subsequent release of Messengers Of Love received little in the way of promotion with only 1,000 copies being pressed
