Vengeance to release unreleased mix of Human Sacrifice for 30th Anniversary

Vengeance 30th Cover

 

It was 1988 when the Christian Metal Music scene was about to change and finally expand in to the extreme metal genre.  Southern California thrashers Vengeance with support and direction from Pastor Bob Beeman were about to unleash their debut album ‘Human Sacrifice’ in hopes to reach the lives of those who needed something like this. They accomplished this wholeheartedly and at the same time shocked the world with its intensity and bold message.

Thirty years later and Human Sacrifice continues to make an impact on people’s lives and in the metal community. As 2018 brings in the official 30th anniversary of Human Sacrifice we are prepared to bring you something very special and unique as we celebrate this monumental release.

Roxx Records is very excited to bring you this special Limited Edition 30th Anniversary CD pressing of Human Sacrifice like you have never heard it before. You are about to get a listen to one of the very first previously unreleased mixes of the album!  Here is what Glen Mancaruso had to say about this release… “Our original goal for the record was for it to sound like you were standing there in the room with us, just raw and heavy, nothing over produced and no reverb to muddy things up.”  You can read the entire write up from Glen in the official liner notes of this release.

That is what you get here a brand new experience as we celebrate 30 years of Human Sacrifice. This mix was even presented in a completely different order then the album we all know and love. So not only is the mix completely raw and different but the order it is presented in holds true to the original source tape which gives you a very new and exciting look at this historical release. This source tape was archived by former White Throne Magazine staff writer Keven Crothers and remastered to give you the best listen in to that mix by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound. With brand new cover art designed by Scott Waters with direct input from the band themselves.

This will be a one-time only 500 piece pressing for the true Vengeance fan! Official release date for this package will be July 27, 2018 where it will be unveiled at this year’s Sacrivox Music Fest.

Angelic Force release ‘Soldiers of The Cross’ in May 2018

AngelicForce Cover

Press releases are supposed to be a real ‘formal’ type thing but you know what we are an indie label and this label is based on releasing things that rock and rock hard. But also our releases have meaning and speak to us, and hopefully to you, as that is our ultimate goal! The past couple of years we have been able to put out a lot of very personal releases that we have absolutely loved being a part of! We already brought you Fear Not, Malachia and are close to fully announcing a very special Soldier release (Stay Tuned). All of these releases were very close and personal to us and ones that took us much work and persuasion to get them back out to you! Why am I sharing this with you? Because the next release is another one of those very special releases that we have wanted to put out for years and finally were able to secure. So here it goes….

Roxx Records is very happy to be announcing a very limited CD only pressing of another long lost Christian Metal GEM! Please welcome to the Roxx Records fold ANGELIC FORCE featuring Stacy Carrera (Blue IV) and Robert Gutierrez (Ultimatum). That’s right straight up power metal from this New Mexico based Christian Metal band (pre Ultimatum). This project has NEVER been available on CD and is going to be limited to a one time pressing of only 300 copies.

Angelic Force started in 1986 and released their first full length album (cassette only) titled ‘Soldiers of the Cross’ which was a very limited pressing. In 1989 the band would record one more two song demo that was never released and then the band would call it a day as Robert went on to form Ultimatum.

Now for the first time ever that first album and that two song demo have been completely remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound and new artwork and design has been done by Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal. This special limited edition package is set to be released in a jewel case edition with an 8 page booklet with rare and exclusive photos and brand new liner notes from Stacy and Robert.

Get in on this true piece of Christian Metal history quick, because like we said earlier it is a one time special pressing of only 300 copies!

Malachia to release anthology 2 CD set

Roxx Records is pleased to announce our next special Limited Edition remaster and reissue with you, it was a very personal one for us and quite the undertaking for all involved. We are very proud to bring the music and story of Los Angeles California’s very own MALACHIA back to life for everyone to enjoy!

Malachia burst in to the Christian Metal scene in 1984 and were very well received with a metal style very reminiscent of early Queensryche. The bands very first full release was on vinyl only and very limited to only around 200 copies and was titled ‘Under The Blade’ this vinyl release is nearly impossible to find today unless you are willing to pay high dollar for a copy on the very rare occasion one pops up on the market. It was also released in limited quantity on cassette, but never on CD.

Up next the band would release what could be considered their swan song with the full length album ‘Red Sunrise’ that was available on vinyl and cassette tape only, never officially on CD.  All the while the band was playing live anywhere and everywhere they possibly could. Playing many shows including making some festival appearances like the Metal Mardi Gras show in California in 1987.

Up next and what would ultimately be the last fully released and marketed track from the band would be a song that made its way on to a very high profile compilation at the time called California Metal II.  Which the band actually recorded under the band name Vision at the time recording a track entitled ‘Runaway’. This compilation was headed up by veteran musicians and producers John and Dino Elefante who gave the track a very polished and professional feel.

After that the band would attempt to continue on, but alas the band would ultimately come to an end before ever officially releasing any music again. The band had actually recorded but never released quite a few more demo tracks over the next few years, but those tracks were never released, until now.

Roxx Records is very excited to bring you a true collectible and a little piece of Christian Metal history back to life. This very special 2 disc limited edition set has been meticulously remastered and restored, with many never before released demos being culled from the only known source of some of these tracks, a sole cassette tape! Working with Wade Little of Malachia we began to work on putting this whole compilation together, gathering the tracks, reviewing many band archival photos, flyers and band promotional items.

For the first time ever the original full length album Red Sunrise and the California Metal track have been completely remixed by producer Ken Roberts. Those tracks along with the tracks from Under The Blade and all of the unreleased demo tracks have been completely remastered and restored by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound for a total of 31 tracks in all, stretched over a full 2 disc set.

This compilation is not just a musical representation, but a complete story and visual glimpse in to the lives of a classic Christian rock band from the 80’s that tells the story of a band and their mission to rock the world and spread the word of God. Featuring new artwork, layout and design provided by Scott Waters of No Life til Metal, new liner notes, track by track write ups,  and stories from all of the original band members in a full color 16 page booklet and Limited to a one time pressing of only 500 copies.

If that is not enough to draw you in, this special package has two more very special limited edition items for you to get in on! There will also be a 3rd disc, limited to the first 100 orders that captures the band live at the Metal Mardi Gras show in 1987.  This is a very cool piece of the bands history, but it is pulled from a hand held recording and while it has been cleaned up, we still offer this as what we have officially dubbed the ‘Bootleg’ edition. This audio bonus disc is limited to only 100 copies worldwide!

But this last piece is what true collectors are going to want to get in on very quickly! Through Wade Little of Malachia we have purchased and will be offering a very, very, very limited 7” promotional record! There were only 100 copies of this promotional 7” record made and these are the very last copies in existence and they have been in storage for over 30 years. Brand new and unplayed, there are only 25 copies  of this 7” promotional single containing 2 tracks only.

Releasing worldwide on April 20, 2018  if you want to get in on any of these very special Limited Edition packages act fast and visit www.roxxproductions.com for pre order information, complete track listing and more information!
