Florida-based Seven Kingdoms is getting ready to enter Morrisound studios in Tampa, Florida with producer Jim Morris (Iced Earth) to begin recording the follow-up to the band's 2010 self-titled Nightmare Records release. The 11 track album is still untitled, and more info is expected to be released shortly.

Guitarist Camden Cruz commented on the writing process for the new album:

"Fans can expect a more dynamic SEVEN KINGDOMS this time around. We have spent the greater part of a year transposing what we have learned into this new record. It has been since the middle of 2009 since we have written anything together and I really believe that you will hear three more years of experience on this album. It is overall a little bit faster, but not in a thrashy way; it is more in the vein of older school power metal that sometimes seems to be overlooked now days. We have been able to shape something in our 'sound' that will set us apart from our forefathers while still being true to the genre. Expect a twin turbo version of our self titled release. The record is the most challenging material we have physically played to date and it has a lot of guitar work on it. Sabrina has even become more herself with this record as we have all grown as musicians. We aim to bring a polished version of what a Modern Day Power Metal Band should sound like. This should be a record that everyone can enjoy from the brand new listener to the most diehard Power Metal fan with more hooks, more shred, more epicness, More In your face double bass, more literal bass, Just more POWER."

Coinciding with entering the studio, the band has just finished filming its very first official video clip for the new record's opener, "After The Fall." The band's first pro video clip, the story is based on George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones, which is also the story which the band's name is based on. Ironically, the same type of cameras used for filming the HBO show were also used for the band's video.

In other Seven Kingdoms news, bassist Aaron Sluss (Bass) has just inked an exclusivity deal with Warwick, one of the most popular musical instruments brand around the world. Christopher Kunitz of Warwick commented on the Aaron's signing.

"Warwick is pleased to welcome Aaron into our illustrious roster of endorsed artists. Aaron has shown a loyalty to the Warwick brand throughout his musical career and his time in SEVEN KINGDOMS. Warwick has a rich history in the ever-growing power metal genre and are excited that Aaron and Seven Kingdoms help us to solidify that even further."

Sluss added: "I'm super excited to be partnering up with none other than Warwick Basses & Amps! In addition to the Warwick Vampyre LTD bass I've been playing, Warwick is hooking me up with an awesome Jonas Hellborg pre and power-amp rig! I can't wait to dig into it and see what kind of killer bass tones we can bring you on this next SEVEN KINGDOMS record. The Warwick Brand is synonymous with high quality bass gear so I'm honored to be working with them and look forward to a long and heavy relationship!"
