After reggae connoisseurs recognized him as a major talent in 1994-95 young singjay Anthony B definitely bursted on the scene in 1996 with his exciting debut album "Real Revolutionary aka So Much Things" and then again in 1997 with his sophomore release "Universal Struggle". Those who are familiar with the works of Anthony B already know that this young artist has delivered some memorable messages through his music, which made him one of the most prominent representatives of the new Jamaican conscious movement that emerged in the second half of the nineties. His over 100 single releases, 6 albums and appearances on some 40 compilation albums, but also his extensive touring schedule in 1998 and 1999 provided Anthony B the opportunity to present himself and his always conscious Reggae music to a large audience. Thus he definitely managed to establish his name among many reggae fans in the US and Europe.

"Seven Seals" is Anthony B's newest work, once again produced by Richard "Bello" Bell of the Star Trail family with additional production work carried out by Colin Levy of "Kings of Kings" and Barry OHare of "World-A-Muzik". This album not only fully showcases Anthony B's talent and skills, but also confirms that he is a musical messenger, who delivers his always striking and meaningful lyrics in a powerful and passionate way. From beginning to end "Seven Seals" contains pure message tunes that range from devotional Rastafarian intonations to calls for righteousness. Many solid songs and such standout cuts as "Who Shoot First", "Family Business", Conquer All" and "Wicked People" make this new Anthony B album a must for all contemporary roots fans !

"Seven Seals" is an enhanced CD, not only manufactured for the cd player but also designed to be used on both MacIntosh and PC computers. This multimedia CD contains a CD-ROM part with some wonderful presentations supported by tunes like "This Notion", "Swarm Me", "Prophecy A Reveal" and "Bun Down Sodom". Included are a short biography, a photo album, tour info and three video clips featuring 'a live performance', 'yard vibes' and 'a studio rehearsal'.
