LUST CONTROL – Feminazi coming May 15th on Limited Edition CD from Roxx Records

Roxx Records is very excited to be bringing you a very special limited edition CD pressing of a classic EP from those notorious Christian Punks known as Lust Control. That’s right the classic 4 track cassette only release entitled Feminazi is being given a new life on limited edition CD with expanded tracks to make it a full 15 track CD! Read the story on Feminazi…

The year was 1994. The four members of Lust Control were still young and ready to make some new noise. They were fed up with the Clinton Administration and juiced up with political angst from talk radio like Rush Limbaugh. This A.M. radio wordsmith had a keen sense of the English language and how a simple word can turn an argument in an instant. Words like “witch hunt” shut people down pretty quickly. Limbaugh coined the phrase “Feminazi” and defined the term as “a feminist to whom the most important thing in life is ensuring that as many abortions as possible occur,” adding that “there are fewer than twenty-five known Feminazis in the United States.” However, in practice he and others use the term in a much wider context.

As important as the words, this rebellious punk/thrash band took a decided turn towards metal with this 4-song EP. The title track took the chunka-chunka vibe of a previous song like “Planned Parenthood” and added more abrasiveness and tone. “Don’t Kill You” dialed in a bass-driven sound that borrowed a pinch of hardcore without deviating from its musical identity. Lyrically, it was the band’s hopeful answer for someone desperately wrestling with the seductive appeal of suicide.

“Temptation” features the band jamming like they love each other’s musical presence. While miles away from the sonic perfection and soundscape of its inspiration, one can hear the band’s affection for King’s X, while Gene tries to conjure his best Dave Mustaine voice.

The final song of the official EP’s studio tracks was also the purpose and reason this studio time at Houston’s Rivendell Studios was booked. Alex Parker of Flying Tart Records asked the band to tackle one of Steve Taylor’s most politically charged songs – “I Blew Up the Clinic Real Good.” The band even took an audio cue from Steve Taylor’s appearance on TBN’s Real Videos as an ice cream salesman for the song’s intro.

Charles Gates was given the task of helping pull this new sound out of the band. An example of his work is found in what was omitted from the chorus of the title track. The band originally repeated the word “Feminazi” at the end of each of the four chorus stanzas. Gates knew the power of subtlety, anticipation and payoff. The four questions (“What would you call them? How can I talk to them? How can understand them? How can I love them?”) was finally answered at the end with the punchline – “FEMINAZI!”
Feminazi was released as a 7-track cassette-only EP. Two live tracks, “Apocalyptic Nightmare” and “Real Men Cry” – engineered by Steve Allen, who produced the first two Lust Control albums, This is a Condom Nation and Dancing Naked – were added, as well as an in-concert sermon from Gene.

The band broke up (aka “taking a 17-year hiatus”) after the release of Feminazi but kept in touch as close friends and played a couple of reunion shows. Gene (aka Doug Van Pelt) joined the band One-21 onstage in 1998 to handle vocals for their rendition of Lust Control’s “Planned Parenthood” and also took the stage in 2011 with the Flatfoot 56 offshoot band, Sexually Frustrated, singing their LC-influenced song, “The Bigger ‘M.’” Bassist Kyle Bawinkel suggested that both Sexually Frustrated and Lust Control share a stage the following year at Cornerstone Festival. Gene came back and told the guys about the opportunity, and they decided to get the band back together and play the Cornerstone Festival in 2011.

This led to recording an album of all new material for Rottweiler Records – Tiny Little Dots – in 2013, which later led to a Kickstarter campaign to press it onto vinyl in 2018. One of the crowdfunding reward levels included all the Lust Control cassette releases, and when it came time to fulfill those orders, it was discovered that there were only 1 or 2 Feminazi cassette tapes left. The band contacted the Kickstarter supporters and posed the question, “Would you mind if we put the Feminazi EP on a CD for you instead?” The response was unanimously favorable, and after making CDRs with the bold red, white, and black artwork for the band members, the band added some bonus songs and released it on CD for the first time.

PRESS RELEASE

No Life Til Metal Records are very excited to bring you our latest signing of straight up in your face heavy metal music hailing from Vienna, Austria! VEIL OF DECEPTION (VoD) are a heavy/groove oriented metal combo formed in January 2013. Often compared to bands like Flotsam and Jetsam, 90’s Anthrax, Fates Warning or even Black Sabbath, VoD always stood out because of their distinct sound and lead vocalist Daniel’s classic metal vocal approach. Having played alongside well-known metal heavyweights like Flotsam and Jetsam, Rage, Nervosa, Blaze Bayley or Visigoth and with two highly-acclaimed full-length albums (“Deception Unveiled” and “Tearing Up The Roots”) under their belts, this 4-piece Austrian outfit decided to join forces with No Life Til Metal Records for the release of their highly anticipated third album, which will be cleverly titled “Dissident Voices”.

As usual, it will be as heavy, catchy, groovy and as soulful as ever with their brilliant amalgamation of metal styles, moods and vibes. VoD are surely ready for take-off… and we are inviting you to join us as we take off on this exciting journey!

The band is set to release their third full length album ‘Dissident Voices’ on No Life til Metal Records this May 31st, 2019. Featuring 11 brand new tracks and the debut single ‘Crooked Lines’

Track Listing:
1. Tragedy Brings Clarity
2. Missing Heartbeats
3. Crooked Lines
4. Wrong End of the Stick
5. Dissident Voices
6. End Coming to an End
7. The Tyranny of Hope
8. Forgotten Rain
9. Bonds of Disaffection
10. Would’ve Beens & Could’ve Beens

Heathens Rage book and CD releasing May 31, 2019

Epic Underground Metal Band Heathens Rage Immortalized In First-Ever Limited Edition Book and Live CD

No Life Til Metal Records will simultaneously release a live CD and a very special book about New Jersey underground heroes Heathens Rage on May 31st, 2019.

The Limited Edition live CD, titled ‘Knights At Switlik’, is an incredible artifact of Heathens Rage history. It captures the band at Switlik Park Pavilion, a little league baseball field recreation hall on May 31st 1985. At this point in the band’s career, Heathens Rage were together for about a year. They were still in the fledgling stage of writing original material so most of the set consisted of cover songs by their favorite metal bands such as Dio, Fates Warning, and Warlord. The only originals performed at this show were “Power Of The Sword,” “Knights Of Steel, :and “City Of Hell.”

Heathens Rage’s increasing popularity created an opportunity for the band to rent out a hall, arranged by manager John Burlaga, and branch out beyond the local talent shows that they dominated.

Knights At Switlik was mastered at Bombworks Studio by Rob Colwell. Minor improvements, such as light de-hissing and channel balancing were made in order to preserve the raw intensity of the original soundboard recording.

Heathens Rage ‘Knights At Switlik’ will be a limited edition CD pressing of 500 pieces with a killer 12 page booklet filled with even more previously unreleased photos and liner notes.

Rage Days: The Illustrated History Of Heathens Rage features hundreds of photos of the band as well as new interviews with eight members speaking about Heathens Rage’s entire history. The 32 page full color book is a true Limited Edition collectible that fans of Rage and metal in general are going to love and want to add to their Metal collections!

Co-author Chris Bade witnessed Rage’s first public appearance at the Battle of the Bands at Hightstown High School on October 27th 1984, and that sealed his fate as a Rage fan for life. He documented their journey by saving set lists, tickets, flyers, and guitar picks, as well as photographing seven of their shows over a three-year period. This is the first time that he has opened up his massive concert archives to the public.

Co-author and No Life Til Metal Records co-owner Scott Waters had a similar journey since Bade, Tony Lee, and manager John Burlaga all went to the same high school and were also going to concerts together. Waters witnessed many Rage shows as well as drawing an early logo for the band. His photographs are being publicly shared for the first time, documenting some of the band’s early performances at the Electric Playground, formerly the club called River Rocks where Twisted Sister played back in 1983.

The authors also had the extreme privilege of being granted access to the manager’s and band members’ personal archives of photos, flyers, shirts, and memorabilia that they had collected over the years. The book also features photos from several European professional photographers and fans alike also, in an amazingly detailed collection which documents the history of this legendary New Jersey underground band.
Rage Days: The Illustrated History of Heathens Rage will be a one-time only limited edition printing of 500 copies.

The book and CD will both be released on May 31, 2019. Pre orders are live now and there is a limited amount of a special combined package that will receive a limited edition Rage button!

Roxx Records releasing tons of Christian Metal on Record Store Day 2019

New Limited Edition items & new music releasing 4-13-19

After a very successful pre-order campaign for brand new limited edition items from Holy Soldier and Love Life Roxx is set to officially release out to the world four long out of print reissues as well as brand new music from three different artists. All releases will be released everywhere on Saturday April 13, 2019 which is official Record Store Day this year!

Up first we have limited edition vinyl and CD reissues from classic CCM artist Holy Soldier with their debut release. The album has been wonderfully remastered and includes two bonus tracks. One a classic radio promo for the debut album and second the very last song ever recorded with original vocalist Steven Patrick entitled ‘In The End’. This is being released in a limited pressing of 500 vinyl copies. 150 on yellow vinyl and 350 on black vinyl, and the yellow vinyl has sold out. Also a limited edition CD package pressing of 500 pieces. Remastered and expanded including new artwork, a 12 page booklet with lyrics and tons of archival band photos. Remaster was done by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound while all artwork and layouts were done by Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal Graphics.

Next we have the long out of print classic hard rock release from another classic CCM hard rock band called Love Life who would eventually change their names and become Fear Not. This classic album has been remastered and repackaged beautifully for a limited edition vinyl and CD release. The vinyl package will be a 500 piece vinyl pressing limited to 150 on gold vinyl and 350 on black vinyl. The gold vinyl is nearly sold out, the remaining copies are only available at the roxx store. Also a beautiful CD pressing of 500 pieces with a 12 page booklet with lyrics and tons of previously unreleased archival band photos and memorabilia. Also we unearthed with the help of the band a previously unreleased reel containing 5 demo tunes never before released. This reel was baked and remastered and added exclusively to the CD for the very first time ever. Remaster was done by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound while all artwork and layouts were done by Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal Graphics.

Next of our four classic reissues we have a limited edition CD pressing from the one and only legends of Christian Metal Bloodgood with a very special edition of the classic album Detonation. This album was officially released by the band themselves but we partnered with them to help bring it back to life! This exclusive special edition is limited to 500 pieces and we only have half of the pressing, so this one is truly limited. This was remastered by original Bloodgood guitarist and producer David Zaffiro. It also includes an exclusive 12 page booklet with lyrics put together by Paul Bloodgood and featuring some exclusive concept art photos of the classic Detonation album cover.

Lastly for our new reissues we have one more very limited pressing of the classic album from Recon entitled ‘Behind Enemy Lines’. If you recall and follow Roxx releases you may be saying, didnt you just reissue this one? Well yes we did about 3 years ago we pressed 300 CD’s in celebration of the 25th anniversary of this classic album, they sold out very very quick and we are constantly asked for this one! So ask and you shall receive, this is the second and final pressing of ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ and it is the same remaster done by George Ochoa for the 25th anniversary including 4 killer bonus tracks. If you own the 25th anniversary release you may not need this pressing as it is nearly identical and the final pressing of this layout and design. If you are the be all end all collector you may want it though as you will notice some subtle differences on this final pressing also done by Scott Waters, removing the 25th anniversary logos, adding a new catalog and UPC to make it unique. This is the final CD pressing in this format and limited once again to only 300 copies.

On to the new stuff we are very excited and proud to be a part of the brand new album from Christian artist LoveWar. After a nearly 25 year hiatus we have an absolutely killer follow up and sophomore release that fits right in there after the classic debut of ‘Soak Your Brian’ early reviews have been raving the new release.

Keven Crothers writer for Heaven’s Metal magazine had this to say about the release “This record is memorable. This record is a breath of fresh air to my ears. This record is produced incredibly well. This record is something you NEED to grab, hear, and consume” Check out the whole review here:http://dougvanpelt.wixsite.com/heavens-metal-mag/single-post/2019/04/04/LOVEWAR–St?fbclid=IwAR3l68fPh_Kz3OkEuzsOUzNa9FVWq3uRcoBrVKOvVraaMbejISiAL8BAUNk and check out the debut single ‘Candle’ right here: https://youtu.be/Dc8C2QdXLpo
