DEAD ON’S MICHAEL RAPTIS PASSES AWAY
Share


FEBRUARY 24th, 2014 (R.I.P. – Michael Raptis)

We at Divebomb Records are saddened to report that DEAD ON vocalist, Michael Raptis, passed away on February 12th. We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends and band mates in this difficult time.

The band wanted to share this statement with all the fans of DEAD ON and fellow metal brethren throughout the world.

Michael Kenneth Raptis

January 1969 to February 2014

The passing of Mike Raptis has deeply saddened us all. Mike was always a live wire, and souls that burn that brightly usually do not remain in this plane for too long. Even though Dead On had disbanded years ago, and several members have not had much contact with one another over that time, we will always be band mates, eternally locked in time and place. There is a brotherhood that is borne from those moments in time that is timeless. We wish Mike’s family peace during their most difficult time now, and in the days to come. RIP the Reaper…you will be missed.

Not only is PICTURE the first heavy metal band to come out of the Netherlands, they’ve also entered their 33rd year of existence and show no signs of slowing down. In fact, 2014 will see the band hitting US shores for the first time ever and Divebomb Records is proud to be reissuing the band’s first four albums for the first time in North America.

Our reissue sets features all four classic albums contained on two long playing CDs. These definitive albums (Picture 1, Heavy Metal Ears, Diamond Dreamer, Eternal Dark) from the Dutch metal masters are now back in print after nearly 15 years, but most importantly, they’re seeing their first-ever North American release. With an irresistible sound that combines tough yet melodic vocals and arena-sized guitar riffs, PICTURE are the living embodiment of classic heavy metal.

If you order both reissues you get FREE Picture logo magnet! (while supplies last and limited to 100)

Besides the 5 Bootcamp titles we just releases in October, we have 4 more Bootcamp titles coming in December followed by reissues from PICTURE, GRINDER, ADDICTIVE and SULTAN in early 2014. We have posted some preview tracks online. We have also had some inquiries about the PICTURE CD covers and whether they will have the smaller covers on the printed versions. No, they will not those images are simply for online promotion to alert listeners that each set contains 2 albums. \m/
