ATTACKER joins MOMR roster / New album details

Beitragvon Jowita » 24. Januar 2013, 12:10

We are happy to announce the signing of the US Power/Heavy Metal veterans ATTACKER. :yeah:
This band probably doesn't need much introduction, but you may find some facts you have not known about checking the detailed biography on the ATTACKER page on our website.

Mike Sabatini, the band's drummer and founder, sent in this comment:
"I just wanted to say on behalf of the band and myself, that we are thrilled to be working with Metal On Metal Records! Jowita and Simone do a fantastic first class job with their releases (no cheap packaging!) and are truly passionate about what they do. That in itself is very important to us, we didn't want to just sign with anyone. We have had a great working relationship with Jowita for several years now with her doing the cover art for our last 2 releases, "The Unknown" and "Standing the Test of Time", both awesome artworks. We look forward to nothing but great things to come with our new partners... See you on the road!!!"

From myself I can add that the first time I met the band was at my first Keep It True festival visit in 2004. Taking photos was just the start - then I worked for them on the cover arts and saw them live four more times. I had been kept updated on the vocalists search situation and I was really happy to hear they eventually ended up getting the great Bobby "Leather Lungs" Lucas - he is definitely a more than worthy successor to Bob Mitchell! It's a great honor for us to be working with this legendary band of which we've been big fans for many, many years, but there's also the friendship factor that makes things just perfect. :smile2:

The band's 5th album "Giants of Canaan" will be released on February 2nd, which coincides with ATTACKER's appearance at the Metal Assault III festival, followed by the headlining show at the Screaming for Metal festival in Madrid, Spain the next night. The band has more shows in the plans, including Childhood Heroes festival in March in New York (with HELSTAR, HERETIC, VIKING and WRATH), Warriors of Metal VI festival in June in Ohio (with MELIAH RAGE, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, STEEL ASSASSIN, TWISTED TOWER DIRE and many others), as well as a 2-week tour in Europe in September including Ages of Metal festival in Belgium (with DIAMOND HEAD, TYGERS OF PAN TANG and others t.b.a.).

"Giants of Canaan" will be available since February 2nd. If you're at the Metal Assault festival, you can buy the CD directly from us or the band (we should also have the T-shirts with the album art design!). If not (and if you're interested of course :wink: ), you can pre-order it from now on: CD - from our our SHOP with 2,00 Euro discount; digital download (that will come with a special screen-friendly booklet) - from our our Bandcamp page, from where you can also listen to 3 new songs: "The Hammer", "Curse the Light" and "Black Winds Calling".

And here's a short album promo clip (featuring a fragment of the title song):



Check more info about "Giants of Canaan" on the page of this release.

"The Hammer" currently is my favorite of the three songs on the bandcamp site. All songs feature US Metal as I like. Bobby Lucas fits perfectly. Glad to see them soon on stage and hear the album on my stereo!
:yeah:

- "Giants of Canaan" (T-SHIRT, limited to 100 copies)
- "Battle at Helm's Deep" (CD reissue, Sentinel Steel)
- "Second Coming" (CD reissue, Sentinel Steel)
- "Soul Taker" (CD, Iron Glory, just a few copies)

As always, we will have some nice bundle offers (for more than 2 CDs, CD+T-shirt, CD+tape, CD+vinyl etc.)

Besides the latest Holy Grail album Attacker will be my next highlight this year! Can't get enough of the three so far known songs and hopefully I'll get in touch with the rest as soon as possible! Lucas' voice sounds fantastic! US Metal forever, mi piace benissimo! :yeah:

The rest is as good or better than the three songs, believe me.The last song "The Glen Of The Ghost" is a bit of a surprise, it's very epic and has a very Iron Maidenish feel to it.

Yes, "The Glen of the Ghost" is really Maiden-esque! They will play this song live at MA too.

By the way, check this thread to see what other new stuff (CDs, tapes, T-shirts...) we'll have at the festival, mostly of SKELATOR, but not only!
