APRIL BRINGS NEW RELEASES FROM SHOTGUN MESSIAH & SLAVE RAIDER
Fans of hard rock know the name SHOTGUN MESSIAH well. The Swedish combo delivered two albums of hook-filled sleaze ’n’ roll with 1989’s Shotgun Messiah and 1991’s Second Coming.
Divebomb Records is proud to present deluxe reissues of both albums. Remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios, and featuring expanded liner notes, including essays on SHOTGUN MESSIAH’s journey from Scandinavian rising stars to Sunset Strip heroes. If that weren’t already enough, the reissues also include newly unearthed photos, plus archival features from Kerrang! and Metal Forces magazines.
These reissues mark the first time both Shotgun Messiah and Second Coming have been available at music retailers since the ‘90s. Don’t miss out on the action this time out!
Despite being released by a major label in the late ‘80s, original SLAVE RAIDER compact discs have been extremely difficult to come by unless you’ve been willing to pay a hefty sale price. Well, fret no more, because Divebomb Records is bringing the world deluxe reissues of 1986’s Take the World By Storm and 1988’s What Do You Know About Rock ’N Roll?
Each disc has been brought back to life via brand new mastering by Jamie King, essays detailing SLAVE RAIDER’s history, original Jive Records artist bios, vintage features from Kerrang! magazine, as well as additional photos and articles from the late ‘80s. It took decades, but the underground metal legends from the Twin Cities are finally getting their due.
All four new releases were originally schedule for release on 4/14/2015, but due to pressing plant delays we have decided to bump release back to 4/28/2015 just to be safe. We once again have limited edition magnets (100 printed) available for those customers who order directly from our store.
