Greetings Sweeties! So glad to get to see you again.

Welcome to '7th HEAVEN'!

‘7th HEAVEN’ continues where our last release ‘Got Your Six’ left off: songs of hope and inspiration featuring our signature guitar sounds, synth melodies, straight ahead drumming with just a few chanting monks thrown in for good measure.

From the opening call-to arms anthem of ‘The Other Side Of Calvary’ to the inspirational and emotional messages of ‘Heaven’s Call’ and ‘when I Tell You I Love You’…the music, message, mission and ministry of the band remains strong with ‘7th HEAVEN’.

Featuring performances by special guests Peggy Turner-Carr David Perez, David Winans II and Jack Kemski, this seven song, seventh release by the band (thus the title) contains songs of hope, songs of love lost and found and directions on how to get from the trials and tribulations of this life to the triumphs and glories of the next.

“We decided to also cover a few songs from bands and artists we grew up with,” explains Q. “We ‘Crystalized’ (our term for how we cover ‘covers’) the song ‘Let The Day Begin’ from 70’s Christian rockers The Call and then went back to the glory days of the 60’s Detroit music scene by recording our version of ‘Checkmate’ by the SRC.”

Sweet, very sweet indeed.

'One of the most underrated and unknown bands to the general public, Sweet Crystal have just released their new album, 7th Heaven. Among the pioneers of the Christian AOR, the group has always released excellent works independently over the years and managed to win the Detroit Music Award. Led by founding member Marq Andrew Speck (vocals and keyboards), the four musicians here offer us the usual pompous sound, which as always draws inspiration from masters such as Magnum, Kansas and Styx, all with a personal and quality touch.'”
