ROCK N ROLL ICE CREAM

Band:JAPANTHER
Album:ROCK N ROLL ICE CREAM
Label:Seayou
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

Described as a “Performance Galaxy” by Vanity Fair and “Super hard, incredibly fast and overall inspiring” by Thrasher, Japanther (www.japanther.com) has always been a band apart, running the gamut from performance art to punk rock and back again.

Pushing parties to the limit and only stopping short of riots, Japanther returns in 2011 with new member Anita Sparrows (The Soviettes) and Rock ‘n’ Roll Ice Cream. Says Ian Vanek, “We met Miss Sparrows on Christmas Eve in San Pedro and formed an instant bond. She is family to us and making music with her is just a part of it.” With Sparrows on board, Vanek and Matt Reilly flew to Los Angeles to work with producer Michael Blum, whose past projects with Michael Jackson, Madonna (Like a Prayer, Who’s That Girl), Pink Floyd and Suicidal Tendencies seemed a daring fit for Rock ‘n’ Roll Ice Cream, an album envisioned by Japanther as a dance party–– and all the kids are invited. “Telephone mics? Really?” exclaimed Michael as the group began what was to become a near-perfect expression of an underground sound. Continuing Japanther’s established habit of collaborating with inspiring icons from every scene, legendary poet Eileen Myles (Cool For You, Chelsea Girls) appears on two astonishing tracks.

Album:LIVE AT ROADBURN 2010.
Label:ROADBURN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Black Metal

Nachtmystium‘s Blake Judd commented: “Our experience at Roadburn was truly one of a kind. Never have we been treated so well by organizers of any festival or tour we have been a part of, and it was truly a blessing to work with the kind folks behind this amazing festival. I’d also like to thank Ron van Herpen from Astrosoniq / The Devils Blood and Teun van der Velden from Astrosoniq for stepping in on very last minute notice to help us out with the lead guitar and synthesizer duties for this performance. Without these two gentlemen, our show would not have been what it was."

DIOTIMA

Band:KRALLICE
Album:DIOTIMA
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

It didn’t take long for Brooklyn, NY’s KRALLICE to get notoriety. Initially formed because of a desired collaboration between notorious avant-garde shredder Mick Barr and technical guitar wizard Colin Marston, for both musicians to explore a more black metal terrain with their music, KRALLICE was originally supposed to be a one-off kind of sporadic project for both musicians to create an album, with vocals (which both musicians weren’t even used to), with an actual band, and with the uncertainty that there would be any more albums following the self-titled debut.

That thought would quell quickly enough as KRALLICE immediately became a functioning band, playing shows along with their debut garnering critical acclaim all across the board through many prominent media outlets and immediately, KRALLICE would become a one-of-akind act within extreme metal. A band unlike anything the scene has befallen upon.

And now with KRALLICE’s third album “Diotima”, the band have undoubtedly released their darkest, heaviest, most-dense, hypnotizing, challenging and accomplished album to date, a turning point album for KRALLICE if there ever was one. The album the band themselves are the most satisfied with and the album (in every aspect possible, from the playing, the performances, and ultimately the production) in which will even more solidify KRALLICE’s importance as one of the most prominent and unique extreme metal bands and exports from America.

 

 

BORN LUCKY

Band:JAMES APOLLO
Album:BORN LUCKY
Label:MARTERRY MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

In the summer of 2010, US troubadour James Apollo released his British debut, ‘’Til Your Feet Bleed’. He now follows it less than 12 months later with ‘Born Lucky’, a career-spanning compilation that ducks and weaves through his extensive back catalogue, stretching back over six prolific years.

Informed by the imagery of William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor’s Southern prose, Apollo’s music also recalls Ennio Morricone’s spaghetti-western themes akin to fellow countrymen Giant Sand, all grizzled with a Tom Waitsian fervour, and the lush, warming tones of Roy Orbison. ‘Born Lucky’ is a record that sweeps through the emotions, both fleeting and fundamental, that document the bittersweet, cinematic legacy of both Apollo’s past, and his ongoing journey - Americana at its most romantically sunset-strewn and desolate.

Confirmed reviews in Word Magazine, Uncut Magazine and Q magazine. “Til Your Feet Bleed” Apollo's 2010 release received 4 star reviews in MOJO and UNCUT

 

 

THIEVES LIKE US

Band:THIEVES LIKE US
Album:THIEVES LIKE US
Label:Seayou
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Thieves Like Us are two Swedes and one American living in Berlin, Paris, and Milan. They are one of the only multi-nationals that won't exploit you. Mexicans love them. The French love them. Americans love them. The Japanese love them. Neither Andy Grier (vocals, guitar), Bjorn Berglund (synth), nor Pontus Berghe (percussion) live in their home countries, and none of them probably ever will again. They first met at a picnic in East Berlin in 2002. Since then, they have also lived together in London, Paris, and New York City. The trio can often been seen in and around night clubs, but they fit awkwardly there. Thieves Like Us were first discovered by the French imprint Kitsune who released their single, "Drugs In My Body" in 2007. They make pop music with a vintage electronic feel. Many times it makes you dance. Other times it makes you feel strange and wonderful. Back in the day they probably would have signed a contract in blood with Factory Records. 2008's "Play Music", their first album, would definitely have fit the bill. BBC Music called it "consistently exciting ... a contender for electronic album of the year."

Limited Vinyl LP.

 

 

LOVE AND FIST

Band:LOVE AND FIST
Album:LOVE AND FIST
Label:Seayou
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Love & Fist was born and raised in the rural, rolling hills of Upper Austria. After four years in the making they are going to release their debut album on Seayou Records which is highly anticipated by Austrian press since both members used to be in the biggest Indie Rock Bands of that country. The first outtake of that album reached top 10 chart positions and good airplay immediately. Their Music has a very rural touch to it, nonetheless it is heavily (almost Hollywood-like) orchestrated and full of mad arrangments. Scott Walker would be proud.

FAMILY FAVOURITES

Band:BIG EYES
Album:FAMILY FAVOURITES
Label:KARATE BODY
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Folk

Family Favourites is a collection of reworked old Big Eyes songs, alongside some new material and also a cover version. The group started just over 10 years ago, so the decision was taken to reassess the back catalogue, and rework/rearrange/rerecord some songs with the recent players to perhaps serve the pieces a little more fully. A ‘best-of’, if you will, or perhaps a retrospective?

Each LP comes with a download card for a free copy of the album.

 

 

BRIGHT MORNING STARS

Band:DEAD ROCK WEST
Album:BRIGHT MORNING STARS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

If it's true that where there's dark there's light, and where there's despair there's hope, then you could say Dead Rock West found its shine transforming dark nights into daylight over 11 songs on Bright Morning Stars. “I wanted to get back to the simplicity of life by connecting with the source,” says Cindy Wasserman (Rob Wasserman’s sister) who with Frank Lee Drennen is Dead Rock West. The pair collected the old time spirituals of Blind Willie Johnson, the contemporary gospel of the Staple Singers, and a desperate plea by the Jesus & Mary Chain, plus six more songs of strength and hope, with the help of producer Peter Case. Joining Dead Rock West with the voices of their talented mentors and friends--John Doe, Exene Cervenka and Mark Olson--the result sounds like some of the best hill stomping music you’ll hear west of Texarkana. And yet, “This is a total California spirituals record,” says Drennen. “Made by California musicians.”

Dead Rock West will be playing 10 dates from London to Glasgow in March 2011.

“With producer Peter Case at the helm, who for all intents and purposes is to Wasserman and Drennen what T Bone Burnette is to Krauss and Plant, this collection of eleven well-chosen songs take us on an Americana inspired road trip, the soundtrack of which is peppered with gospel-tinged to bluesy adaptations of familiar songs from the tradition”. - Allan Wilkinson Northern Sky UK

 

 

THAT OLD SOUTHERN DRAG

Band:PATRICK SWEANY
Album:THAT OLD SOUTHERN DRAG
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

"That Old Southern Drag is Patrick Sweany's anticipated follow up to the 2007 Dan Auerbach-produced record Every Hour Is A Dollar Gone. Patrick has spent the past three years touring relentlessly both on his own and in support of artists such as The Black Keys, Hot Tuna, Paul Thorn, The Wood Brothers, and Sonny Landreth. On Southern Drag, Sweany wraps his retro blues rock around vintage Southern soul, recalling folks like Eddie Hinton and Solomon Burke, while maintaining his scruffy indie edge.

"His music has a loose, aggresive edge, but in his quiter moments, Sweany recalls the supple beauty of Ry Cooder's 70s readings of Depression-era pop blues." - MOJO (UK) "New Blues Explosion!"

HEART OF A DOG

Band:KASEY ANDERSON
Album:HEART OF A DOG
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Kasey Anderson's fourth full-length album, Nowhere Nights, earned him widespread praise (Paste, Blurt, No Depression, The Onion AV Club) and comparisons to Steve Earle, Guy Clark, and Townes Van Zandt, but Anderson remained unsatisfied. Feeling boxed-in and determined to shake the ""Roots Rock"" tag, Anderson assembled his band, The Honkies, and recorded Heart of a Dog, a swaggering set of unabashed Rock 'N' Roll. From the sinister opening riff of the opening track, ""The Wrong Light,"" to the barroom piano of the album's plaintive closer, ""For Anyone,"" Anderson and his band shed any prior evidence of ""twang"" and rock, as Anderson says, ""without pretense or apology.

 "A literate, workingman's poet."" - Paste

"Heart of a Dog is an ambitious and well-produced album that represents a solid step forward for Anderson as a musician and band leader and will likely result in some more rousing live shows in 2011" – No Depression

INTO THE DARK UNKNOWN

Band:HOLCOMBE WALLER
Album:INTO THE DARK UNKNOWN
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Holcombe Waller’s “Into The Dark Unknown” is the fourth release from this Portland based artist. Beyond performing solo and with his chamber folk ensemble, The Healers, Holcombe creates multidisciplinary work that combines video, music, and staging. He collaborates with dance and theater artists and recently composed the music for David Weissman’s film We Were Here, which premiered at The Sundance Film Festival 2011. With a national spring/summer tour in the works, a Huffington Post feature in February and a new video on the homepage of Out Magazine, Waller’s presence will be apparent to those who have been waiting for his latest indie neo-folk rock release.

“He’s got the crazy-beautiful, four-octave voice of an androgynous seraph. Waller renders songs of romantic holocaust with a nakedness that can’t be taught.” – Spin Magazine.

 

 

HIGHWAYS GHOSTS HEARTS AND HOMES

Band:SUSAN JAMES
Album:HIGHWAYS GHOSTS HEARTS AND HOMES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Susan James' new release, Highways, Ghosts, Hearts and Home, finds her expanding her lyrical and musical reach through her psychedelic, country-folk lens. Tune after tune reveals the unique qualities of James voice, her melodic skills, or her oft-admired knack for turning a phrase. Paul Lacques, Paul Marshall and Shawn Nourse, of I See Hawks In LA, perform on all tracks; Gabe Witcher of Punch Brothers is the fiddle player; and Danny McGough of Shivaree adds Hammond B3. Her 11 original songs were written, recorded and produced as a ""concept"". Highways, Ghosts, Hearts and Home is one powerful, refreshing and sonically pleasing new release from an extremely talented musician.

"James' folk-based songs have caused her to be compared to Joni Mitchell… perhaps most like Mitchell because she is like no one else."" Los Angeles Times

 

 

GRAVITY LOVES YOU

Band:KELLEY HUNT
Album:GRAVITY LOVES YOU
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Acclaimed roots R&B/Americana singer/songwriter/piano player Kelley Hunt's fifth release, Gravity Loves You features 12 new songs including works from Hunt's solo pen and collaborations with writers Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Dwight Liles and Sarah Hart. Gravity is another studio tour de force for Hunt, who also co-produced, exploring the theme "make your move, take the leap of faith to follow the life path that is true to you". Gravity winds its way through a palette of roots forms and arrangements that conjure old-school funk to Philly Soul to burning boogie-woogie romps to the intense Gospel-influenced ballad style that is a Kelley Hunt trademark. The project is totally analog, not touched by Pro Tools, and showcases the artist's eminent vocal and keyboard studio performance veritas in a rich, warm aural landscape.

“This Lawrence, Kansas resident seemingly has it all: a brilliant two-fisted piano playing style; a cache of mature self-penned songs ranging in temperament from unrestrained rockers to the most emotive of soul ballads; and, best of all, a flawless R&B vocal technique that would put many a blues 'legend' to shame." All told, this is a marvelous album; miss it at your peril." Blueprint, UK

"True Instigator, Fernando's seventh full-length, was recorded in Portland by Adam Selzer (Norfolk and Western, M. Ward).

Ward, Old Joe Clarks, Richmond Fontaine, She and Him), and Adam Selzer; the first two mixing two songs each, with Coykendall and Selzer jointly mixing the rest of the album. The album is a return to form for Fernando, following 2006's heavily pop-leaning Enter To Exit and 2001's stark, acoustic focus on Dreams of the Sun and Sky. True Instigator offers up straight-ahead rock, alt. country starkness, and haunting melodies.

BE ON THE BLUES

Band:PAUL OSCHER
Album:BE ON THE BLUES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Paul Oscher‘s latest, Bet on the Blues, has already garnered him three nominations from the 2011 Blues Music Awards (WC Handy Awards) for Best Acoustic Album, Best Acoustic Artist and Best Instrumentalist—Harmonica. The album contains fifteen tracks of low-down blues, gospel and jazz from this former Muddy Waters Blues Band member and multiple Blues Music Award winner. Recorded live and in the studio, this work features Paul on vocals, bass harp, neck-racked (diatonic and chromatic) harmonicas, guitar and piano in solo, trio and quartet settings. The title track Bet on the Blues is a great story about Paul meeting Little Walter for the first time and playing three card monte with him (contains explicit language). Oscher ventures out of the blues box to perform a stunning bass harp rendition of the jazz classic Round Midnight. This album is deep roots music played from the heart by a living master of the genre. Special guests include Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and Kid Andersen.

“You can hear Muddy in his guitar, and Otis Spann in the piano, but the overriding sensation is of Oscher at the height of his powers and maturity. This is a man who has spent his life steeped in a blues tradition, and it shows.” Juke Blues (U.K.)

 

 

MAKE IT DARK

Band:TWISTED TOWER DIRE
Album:MAKE IT DARK
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Make it Dark” is TWISTED TOWER DIRE fifth full-length studio album. TWISTED TOWER DIRE’s name has been a synonymous for uncompromising HEAVY METAL since its inception in 1995. Formed out “of a stubborn hatred for the 90’s anti-metal culture” as their website states, TWISTED TOWER DIRE have always been able to maintain a respectable profile, not following transitory trends but keeping true to their original metal beliefs. After their 2007 release “Netherworlds”, TTD took a short break which included the entry of new singer Johnny Aune replacing Tony Taylor. Tragically, Tony died in a motorcycle accident on 6th Feb 2010. In terms of songwriting “Make It Dark” represents probably the most mature album ever written by TTD. With a direct approach, the band has been able to write a very compact sounding release, made of some immediate hit songs as well as others marked with more traditional TTD taste. “Make it Dark” is a sum of those elements which are the pillars of rock/metal music in general and that are so greatly expressed by Twisted Tower Dire in this release: guitar and vocal melodies above the standards, catchy refrains and most important of all, the feeling that each and every of these songs might become a metal classic! Strengthened by Chris Salamone’s (While Heaven Wept) post-studio work, “Make it Dark” is a serious candidate as a 2011 top metal releases.

A revisited traditional metal formula that ranges from classic US Metal to Kiss and Van Halen's sound!

 

 

BOLDLY STRIDE THE DOOMED

Band:ARGUS
Album:BOLDLY STRIDE THE DOOMED
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD

Pennsylvania’s ARGUS stormed onto the underground metal scene with their twin guitar-driven, doom-tinged, working class metal sound. Releasing a self-recorded demo in early 2007 on John Brenner’s (Revelation/Against the Nature) DIY label, Bland Hand Records, the band was roundly welcomed by the metal community at home as well as abroad and established its foundation amongst friends/fans within the scene. With this initial momentum, the band created a buzz that was only solidified by their punishing live performances. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2009 receiving much critical praise. The band continued to gain notoriety attracting like-minded fans word-wide who celebrate the genre and its core values of: hard work, discipline and integrity.

Featuring the powerful voice of former Penance vocalist Butch Balich, Argus prepares to cement themselves within the metal archives with its sophomore effort, “Boldly Stride the Doomed” !

DISSIDENTS AND DANCERS

Band:THE METHOD
Album:DISSIDENTS AND DANCERS
Label:SEE MONKEY DO MONKEY
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Mariacha horns, Middle Earth Club’s avant lysergic delirium, the three-button suited, angry cool of The Specials, wahed guitars and synth bubbles lifted from ’70s Blaxploitation plus drum beats fit for the dancefloor… ladies and gentlemen may we introduce you to The Method. All who have seen them play live swear by ’em. Vocalist Richie Hayes sings it like he means it, equal parts soul man, Northwest garage band shouter and cocky indie star. The band play horn laden ’60s music with the vicious energy of punk; think a riled young Tom Waits fighting with The Monkees. An odd description perhaps, but The Method genuinely play outside the boundaries. If Kasabian ditched the stadium rock pretensions and used their imagination this is how they could sound.

For fans of: The Zutons, The Coral, The Specials, Black Lips, The Strange Boys, Malachai, Thee Vicars...

MASTER SLEEPS

Band:HILLS
Album:MASTER SLEEPS
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Hills are from Gothenburg/ Sweden and was formed back in 2007. Hills formed to make music that focuses on the groove/sounds and rhythm instead of classical songwriting structures. To create a meditative space, without rules, heavily dependent on improvisation. To create a feeling but not necessarily to explain it through words. Influenced by everything from the early experimentation of John Coltrane via the repetitiveness of Velvet Underground, Krautrock / Psych in general and the grimness of early black/ death metal bands and punk. Hills try to keep it honest, analog and raw the very best way they can.

Three Seasons are Sartez (ex SIENA ROOT vocalist), guitar and vocals, Olle, bass, and Christian, drums. While all of us are very different from each other, one could surely say that in some senses, we're fairly similar too. THREE SEASONS is a mash-up of our thoughts, minds and bodies, together forming sounds possibly reminding of bands and musicians such as DEEP PURPLE, LED ZEPPELIN, PINK FLOYD, JIMI HENDRIX, THE DOORS, BLACK SABBATH, FREE, GOV'T MULE, MOUNTAIN and SANTANA.

Label:NIGH TRIPPER
Format:VINYL LP

The Swedish band el Camino has since the beginning back in the winter of 2002/03 been a tool for the expression of both music and thoughts. The music has always been the primary with a call to compose heavy music that isn’t limited by either genres or other unwritten laws. The shaping of el Camino consists of cultural, musical, occult and historical elements ”- the way is so to say, winding, as above so below while we create” With the ambition to create their own musical form el Camino drew up the guidelines right from the start. The result could be heard as a form of rockmusic with strength and elements of both hardrock and doom.

Records" (no surprise as Zapain feature an ex-dONfiSHER member in their ranks) but the sweet melodies that Chris, Chris and James have produced still manage to sound relevant and exciting today. Blending melodic hook-filled punk and heartfelt lyrics with intricate Leatherface-style chord progressions, an aggressive rhythm section, gravelly, soulful vocals and soaring backing vocals, this album looks set to become a UK punk rock classic.

Label:FOND OF LIFE
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

MIKE SCOTT was bassist for well known underground melodic hardcore band Phinius Gage from 2003-2007. Since then he has turned his attention to playing acoustic punk rock – and “Saturation Point” is Mike’s debut full length record, after releasing a string of EPs and splits with the likes of Kevin Seconds (7Seconds) and Flav Giorgini (Squirtgun). “Saturation Point” represents exactly what Mike is about. 17 songs in under half an hour, mixing punk, folk, ska and his hardcore roots, it is a varied, melancholic and dark, yet intense album. Self recorded with the help of a handful of hometown friends, “Saturation Point” is a reaction to the overpopulated, online music culture and represents a sketch book of Mike’s musical ideas. “Saturation Point” is by far Mike’s most accomplished solo work, recorded to DIY ethics.

Genre:Dance/Electronica

MIDIMIDIS are two tuneful brothers-in-law gifted with an 8-bit view of the world. Imagine the Strokes in Tron. Or a Speak and Spell with a broken heart. Locked away with guitars and neglected computers from 1983, MidiMidis are the only band who currently soundtrack their lives entirely from midi and 8-bit melodies. Their notorious (now long since sold out) hand-made lo-fi demos were championed on the airwaves by HUW STEPHENS and EDDY TEMPLE-MORRIS; whilst also picking up rave reviews in ARTROCKER, Q, THE METRO, CHANNEL 4 PLANET SOUNDS and DROWNED IN SOUND. After a crazy 2009 - encompassing TINGESFEST, IN THE CITY, performing on-stage with LOSERS at GLADE FESTIVAL and supporting Tinchy Stryder for Radio 1, to their jaw-dropping set at SECRET GARDEN PARTY, it comes as no surprise that NME made their remix of EGYPTIAN HIP HOP download of the day and that THE GREAT ESCAPE added them last minute after seeing one live show. During 2010 it all continued with more festival appearances (including Reading/Leeds), a Maida Vale session for the BBC and their debut single through Josaka. With Didz Hammond (Dirty Pretty Things/ The Cooper Temple Clause) managing MIDIMIDIS, the brothers in law have just signed a major publishing deal with BMG and are currently mixing their debut album with Tom Bellamy (Losers). The Despondent/It's Difficult is produced by Mr Fogg (himself a successful electronic artist and producer). A full UK tour is currently being booked for April and a number of key dates are already confirmed including Club NME at Koko.

Genre:Death Metal

Dutch metalcore band INCARNATE are excited to announce the release of their third album “Hands of Guilt / Eyes of Greed”. This summer, Incarnate recorded “Hands of Guilt / Eyes of Greed” at the Independent Recordings Studio in Utrecht. The new album was once again engineered by Quintijn Verhoef. For the release of "Hands of Guilt / Eyes of Greed", the band officially resigned a deal with Demons Run Amok. Guitarist Chris states “We already worked with both parties for our previous album and that turned out very well. There was no reason to change the recipe. We are glad to stay within the DRA family.” It's the first album with new vocalist Koen Mattheeuws. Frontman Koen comments: “After being with the band for about a year, I am proud to show the results of our song writing. This is INCARNATE’s third studio album and it's a killer! This record has a great Thrash and Death Metal feel to it, but the groove and slower tempos are represented.There's something for everyone.” INCARNATE worked together with Jacob Parmentier to visualize the album’s concept. Parmentier is an upcoming artist known for his black and white horror-esque style of drawing. Recently he also worked for bands as Arkangel and Rot in Hell. He did an awesome job on the cover artwork, which now perfectly fits to the music.

INCARNATE brings you music with the intensity and power of Heaven Shall Burn, the thrashing riffs of Slayer and the heaviness of Bolt Thrower.

SHOW NO MERCY - DISC ONE

Band:BRIDE
Album:SHOW NO MERCY - DISC ONE
Label:Retroactive
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The 1986 release of SHOW NO MERCY immediately catapulted Bride to the elite ranks of Christian metal! Much more muscular than the standard hair metal of the day, it was the extravagantly talented vocals of Dale Thompson and the dominating, skillful axework of brother, Troy Thompson that set the band apart. While many Christian metal acts were described as Christian versions of their mainstream counterparts, Bride’s sound was dark, powerful, and most importantly – original! This album is disc one in The Originals collector’s series. The Originals series – consisting of the first three BRIDE albums - brings back all the original vinyl artwork, lyrics, and band photos. All three albums are each packaged in its own pristine 6 panel digipak featuring the original track listing, a three-part liner notes story showcasing Troy Thompson's memories of the era. The first three BRIDE albums are very much in line with the hard rock and metal styles of the big 80's era. All three albums are absolute Christian metal classics. Sonically, all albums have been edited and digitally remastered for dynamic perfection. The song to song transition work is fantastic. Each album has been mastered to modern volumes without losing vocals, punch, or the magic we remember these records originally having.

For fans of Stryper, Judas Priest, and Dio!
