  • Blitzkrieg (NWOBHM) to release 30th Anniversary Edition of 'A Time Of Changes' (brand new re-recorded version)

    Metal Nation will release a 30th Anniversary Edition of Blitzkrieg's 'A Time Of Changes' (with 2 bonus tracks) on November 2nd 2015. 100 advance copies are available for purchase now.

    2015 sees the 35th anniversary of the band Blitzkrieg who came into existence in 1980. Although their debut single (on Neat records) was released in 1981 ("Buried Alive" b/w "Blitzkrieg") it was not till 1985 that the band recorded their debut album as vocalist Brian Ross was involved with his other band, Satan, recording and touring their debut classic 'Court In The Act'.

    30 years on, because of catalogue sale and resale, 'A Time Of Changes' is lost in the vaults of 'corporate hell' and may never see the light of day again. That said, the current line up of Blitzkrieg wanted this album available to fans so they have completely rerecorded the album and added two bonus tracks. "Too Wild To Tame" should have made the LP back in 1980 but due to the time restrictions of vinyl then it would not fit! It was eventually recorded by another Neat records stablemate, Avenger. The second bonus track has never been released before though it was written at the time. "Jealous Love" was the last song penned by the Ross/Sirroto partnership which fueled the early version of the band. All the classic tracks are here too on this album including many still played live today which includes the Metallica-covered "Blitzkrieg" track. It also features guest twin-guitar appearances on "Pull The Trigger" by Satan's Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey. Great new artwork has been commissioned for the new version too by South American artist Ivan Chacon fronting a new 12-page booklet full of sleeve notes by Brian Ross, lyrics and new photos from the past and present line-up.

    The album will be released in Europe by the band's long-time label Metal Nation Records. It will also be released in Japan by Spiritual Beast and various labels in South America to coincide with the band's 7-date six-country tour there in November 2015. There will also be a vinyl version of the album on High Roller Records by German based label High Roller Records.
