With pride we present you one of the most criminally neglected 80's metal masterpieces, AVALANCHE "Pray for the Sinner", originally released in 1985 on LP and cassette.
This is the first time that the album will be available on CD with 2 bonus tracks, featuring remastered sound and a lengthy interview with bass player and singer and founder of the band, Nikki Van Welden (ex-VYPER).
Also, the CD will feature new cult looking artwork and will come with a 16-page booklet loaded with photos, lyrics etc.
Definitely one of the most anticipated reissues of 2015.
This band was formed during the 1977 in Toronto, Ontario. Rapid Tears has always been ahead of their time, offering up a good mix of rock and early metal, influenced by NWOBHM, that hasn’t lost any of its punch with the passage of time. These guys weren't afraid of playing fast, with an alarmingly crude production that gives it a dose of credibility and proves these guys had studied their British counterparts well. Songs like the fast opener "Survival", the anthem "Headbang", the epic "Tomorrow" and the hard rock influences of "Keep Runnin'", worth listening to. The American heavy metal passes here too.
