ATTACKER The Second Coming + 3 bonus tracks CD
Awesome US traditional power speed metal--the band really upped the excitement and the pacing on this, their second album (1988) -- that competes with Omen, Savage Grace, Judas Priest, a crunchier Iron Maiden & early Metal Church; produced by Alex Perialas (Anthrax, Testament, Overkill, Meanstreak). Official reissue that includes new cover art plus a 16 page booklet jam packed with photos, liner notes, lyrics, and much more.

ATTACKER The Unknown + 3 bonus tracks CD
(+ request free exclusive massive 18" x 24" poster)
11 tracks total
Tremendous traditional US power metal drawing on influences ranging from Iron Maiden (circa Piece of Mind/Powerslave), Judas Priest (Defenders/Painkiller) to Accept (Restless/Balls) and Mercyful Fate (Don't Break...). Comparable to early Metal Church (s/t, The Dark), Attacker's The Unknown features the band's best production ever, plus perhaps their most powerful selection of songs. From the storming Priest-like opener "This Is Power" to the guitar wizardy of "The Unknown" to the crunching doom power of "Devil's War", Attacker combine the classy twin lead guitar team of Benetatos and Marinelli, the double bass drumming of Sabatini, the return of original bass player Ciarlo and the distinct pipes of singer Mitchell into a potent power metal force.

AXEHAMMER Windrider CD
(+ request free exclusive poster when you buy direct from us)
The Metal Giant rises once again! Traditional USA power metal at its best, with absolutely no "modern" influences. Axehammer continues from where they left off with the now classic 'Lord of the Realm' CD released back in 1998. 'Windrider' features 10 pure heavy metal tracks, ranging from speedy scorchers like "Stand Up and Fight" to midpaced crushers like "The Power". The Axehammer line-up includes original/definitive members Jerry Watt (guitars), Bill Ramp (vocals) and Joe Aghassi (drums) plus new bass player Colin Sauers. This album was recorded by Bill Metoyer (Omen, Helstar, Trouble, Fates Warning, Tyrant, Intruder) and mixed by Eric Rachel (Gothic Knights, Manilla Road, Symphony X, Whiplash, Overlorde).

CYPHER SEER Awakening Day CD
+ request free exclusive massive 18" x 24" poster for USA buyers
A stunning debut album of crunchy US power metal with great melodies, amazing guitarwork and passionate vocals. Formerly known as Malakis Reign (singer James Rivera (Helstar, Destiny's End, Seven Witches), and bassist Mike LePond (Symphony X) were briefly members, appearing on the band's first demo), CYPHER SEER's current, definitive line-up includes past and present members of Gothic Knights, Arctic Flame, Onward, Crescent Shield and Legend Maker. Crafting exceptional songs, CYPHER SEER's Awakening Day can best be described as an exciting blend of Iced Earth's 'Something Wicked...' meets Symphony X's 'Divine Wings...' Awakening Day was mixed by Fredrik Nordström (Hammerfall, In Flames, Sinergy, Supreme Majesty, Dark Tranquillity).

GOTHIC  KNIGHTS Kingdom of the Knights
Fantastic US traditional power metal with blazing guitarwork and high range vocals, built on the legacy of such bands (and albums) as Savatage (Hall of the Mountain King), Judas Priest (Defenders of the Faith), Riot (Thundersteel), Metal Church (Metal Church) and others. Includes Judas Priest cover song "The Ripper". This CD has been out of print for years, but the band has agreed to one final pressing, which is very limited at 666 copies. The reason for this being "final"? The band plans to re-record parts and remix this album with current singer Rick "Warlock" Sanchez in 2010, so this is the last chance to get Kingdom of the Knights in its original form, as originally mixed by Eric Rachel (Symphony X, Whiplash, Axehammer). A metal classic, nearly 10 years old!

MANILLA ROAD Mystification + 1 bonus
10 tracks
Out of print no more! Due to demand, this 1987  heavy metal classic is back in print. Possibly the band's most powerful release, Manilla Road skillfully combines its mastery of traditional epic metal with power, speed, thrash and doom metal influences. Never has the band sounded so heavy (thanks to a new mix at Trax East Studios (Symphony X, Whiplash, Gothic Knights)) and so dark (half the album is based on the stories of Poe).

NEW EDEN Throug the Make Believe
Awesome US power metal in the style of classic Helstar.
This CD had two different pressings; the first pressing was mixed by Bill Metoyer and the 2nd pressing, with more guitars in the mix, was mixed by Horacio Colmenares. Each pressing was 1000 copies. The only way to tell the idifference is by the matrix code in the inner circle of the disc.

ONWARD Evermoving
This was originally produced by/for Sentinel Steel but the results were so good that Century Media bought the album from us. Excellent US power metal with Shrapnel-shred-meets-Loudness style guitars from axeman Toby Knapp and and superb vocals from Michael Grant (Cypher Seer, Crescent Shield).
Note: there was never a Sentinel Steel label edition of this CD, and we had nothing to do with Century Media's cover art.

SACRED OATH A Crystal Vision + 4 bonus songs
A haunting 80s occult metal feast of old Mercyful Fate mixed with the galloping riffs of early Iron Maiden and early Iced Earth; includes a detailed booklet with rare photos, liner notes, and more. The song selection has been resequenced to bring the original album concept story back into order, the way the band had originally intended. An alternate source was used as the album master, from which the remastering occurred, ensuring the most dynamic sound quality possible. 4 bonus songs were added from the 1998 Sacred Oath recording sessions.

STEEL ASSASSIN War of the Eight Saints
+ request free exclusive massive 18" x 24" poster for USA buyers
Formed as a cover band in 1980, the group officially became STEEL ASSASSIN in 1983, appearing on Metal Massacre 6 in 1985. Despite acclaimed true metal demo tapes and live shows in the early/mid '80s, the band disbanded in 1985, a brief reunion in 1988 keeping the STEEL ASSASSIN name alive. The band members continued on in other projects, with 2005 finally bringing 4 of the 5 original members back together again, resulting in heavy writing and rehearsal sessions for the War of the Eight Saints album. New lead singer John Falzone (Triphammer) was added to the line-up, and Rich Spillberg (Wargasm) handled the engineering and production duties. The result is a masterpiece nearly 25 years in the making; a devastating new album of US traditional epic/true power metal at its masterful best. Singer Falzone is a stunning singer in the explosive Dio/Dickinson/Soto style, and when coupled with STEEL ASSASSIN's strong musicianship, catchy songs and intelligent lyrics based on history and mythology, War of the Eight Saints may be THE traditional power metal album of 2007.
