Fear Not – 25th Anniversary LP and CD reissue details announced

Fear Not Cover

Roxx Records is very excited to announce our next Limited Edition reissue of the much sought after debut release from US rockers FEAR NOT!

That’s right one of the long, lost out of print titles that has never seen a proper reissue, original CD copies are very scarce to find these days, if you can find one at all! But even better this will be the first time this title has ever been released on vinyl!

Fear Not was formed in 1992 coming out of the remnants of Love Life with their one and only release entitled ‘Goodbye Lady Jane’. After the release of ‘Goodbye Lady Jane’ the band felt they needed a change and to somewhat reinvent their sound and style, the band would change their name to Fear Not, sign on to Pakaderm Records and embark on to a very successful ride with this, their self-titled debut.

Unfortunately in the mid 90’s the music scene was starting to take a turn, and when a band like Fear Not should have been on top of the charts, the sounds of grunge were coming in and hard rock in the vein of Fear Not was pushed to the side. Alas, Fear Not would call it a day before ever recording a sophomore release.

Today 25 years later we are excited to once again revisit and celebrate the music and story of Fear Not. Featuring a very beautiful new cover, that stays true to the original release while highlighting the hand painting of Ronald Wall, who assisted in the beautiful pin stripped logos on the cover and the beautiful updated hand painting of the cross on the back cover. Together with Scott Waters (No Life til Metal), they turned the artwork and layout in to a work of art.

We are just getting started though, the music for this reissue has been completely remastered for vinyl and for a special CD pressing by our very own Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound). So join us as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Fear Not with this very cool limited edition reissue.

Fear Not the self-titled album will be issued on vinyl for the very first time with a special run of only 500 copies, featuring 150 copies on purple vinyl and 350 on black vinyl. It will feature all 10 of the original tracks as they originally appeared on the CD. Also we will be pressing 500 copies on limited edition CD featuring all 10 original tracks and 2 brand new previously unreleased tracks on CD! Release date is scheduled for December 8, 2017, just in time for the Holiday season.

Holy Soldier 25th Anniversary of Last Train

Holy Solider - Last Train FINAL!Roxx Records is very excited to announce a very special reissue from one of Christian rock’s most instrumental and influential artists of the late eighties and early nineties, Holy Soldier.

Formed by bassist Andy Robbins and guitarist Jamie Cramer, Holy Soldier burst on to the scene in 1985 taking the Christian rock world by storm. The band played all over the US but very quickly built a large following in their home state of California. At one time the band held the largest attendance records at the famous Hollywood night club Gazzarri’s. By 1990 the band would release their debut self-titled album which would draw even more attention and success to the band allowing them to continue to tour and record. By 1992 the band would release their highly anticipated sophomore effort titled ‘Last Train’ which would even further their success and broaden their market reach across the world. The band would play live relentlessly, touring all over, winning two Dove awards and building an amazing following all over the world.

“ ‘Last Train’ shows a band at the peak of their prowess. With grit and determination Holy Soldier shows that they were not followers in a narrow glam scene but were an exceptional hard rock act that worked hard to create a unique sound that deserved more recognition than they received. All the years of slugging it out in  the L.A. club scene were not lost on this talented five piece, producer David Zaffiro pulled out the best they had and helped to craft an under rated gem.”                                                                                                                                                             Keven Crothers (White Throne / Heaven’s Metal)

This year marks the 25th anniversary of that sophomore release ‘Last Train’ and with that we are going to celebrate and give this classic release a much needed reissue giving it that special Roxx treatment. The music on this reissue will be exactly as it originally appeared in 1992 track by track, but featuring a complete and new remaster done by J Powell at Steinhaus Remastering, and it sounds amazing! In addition this reissue will feature some slightly updated artwork, however keeping the integrity, look and feel of that classic original pressing. This brand new interpretation of the artwork as well as the full layout and design was done by Scott Waters (Roxx Records / No Life Til Metal).

This limited edition pressing will come in a 500 piece vinyl pressing with 150 on red vinyl and 350 on black vinyl marking the very first time this album has ever been pressed on vinyl! In addition we will also be releasing a very cool 500 piece limited edition remastered reissue on CD. Official street date for this reissue will be August 25, 2017 but this release will be making its official debut at this year’s SoCal Metal Fest 2 – A Tribute to Dale Huffman on Saturday August 12th.

D.O.G. Disciples of God to release debut album at SoCal Metal Fest

How about some killer Christian Metal in the vein of Metallica or Motorhead? If that sounds like its something up your alley you’re gonna want to check out the newest addition to the Roxx Records roster! Making its official debut this August at So Cal Metal Fest 2 – A Tribute to Dale Huffman is the debut release from D.O.G. or Disciples Of God which was started as a true ministry based band out there playing anywhere and everywhere they can to spread God’s word through heavy metal!

As much as the band would probably not like you to say this you could classify this release as a Christian Metal Super Group! When you have pro players like Terry Russell of Holy Soldier and Neon Cross on drums and singing lead vocals as well as Larry Farkas of Vengeance Rising and Die Happy on guitars along side Don Webster of Neon Cross on guitar and lastly featuring the bass talents of Terry’s son Colton Russell on bass one might say it’s got a bit of that going on here. BUT, the sound here is something completely different then all the aforementioned bands, this music is on the straight up heavy metal side with vocals from Terry tending to sound a little like a cross between Lemmy and James Hetfield.

Check out the first single and brand new lyric video courtesy of Kruse FX titled ‘No One Rides For Free’ off the debut album ‘Unleashed’…

Again if you’re at the BIG show this August you will have your first opportunity to pick one up, the official street date is August 25, 2017. Pre orders are up now at www.roxxproductions.com

Vengeance celebrate 30 years of thrash!

 

It was 30 years ago in 1987 when Pastor Bob Beeman of Sanctuary International would be led to call together a very special group of musicians that would come together to form a new ministry minded band out of Southern California. With a lot of prayer and faith the players were assembled and the full band would come together to record and distribute their very first demo tape. That tape would be what many people still consider to be the beginning of a movement, one thing was certain it was about to make a lasting impression on the Christian music community.

That band was one of the very first in the genre of Christian thrash, that band was called Vengeance and that tape was their original 5 song self-titled cassette only demo. That tape would lead them to signing a multiple album record contract on Intense Records which ultimately led to the release of their first full length album entitled ‘Human Sacrifice’.

‘Human Sacrifice’ was one of the most controversial releases of the time. Many Christian record stores would ban the album from their shelves completely. The album featured the hand of Pastor Bob himself portraying the bloodied hand of Christ nailed to the cross. The music was harsh and in the vein of bands like Dark Angel and Slayer, it definitely took the Christian ‘White’ Metal scene to a whole new level.

This classic album has been long out of print outside of a Limited Edition CD reissue (1000 pieces) on the defunct Intense Millennium Records in 2010 and a Limited Edition vinyl picture disc (300 pieces) on Roxx Records in 2013, all of which are long sold out and now collector’s items themselves. With the album still in high demand we are very happy to bring to the public a new and very special pressing adding a few twists as we celebrate 30 years of Vengeance.

Roxx Records is proud to bring you a very special pressing of ‘Human Sacrifice’ this special package includes brand new liner notes from original Vengeance bassist Roger Dale Martin. It has been completely remastered by J Powell of Steinhaus Mastering and features a brand new layout done by our very own Scott Waters (Roxx Records/No Life til Metal). This limited edition pressing will feature the newly designed artwork as originally featured on the vinyl picture disc version from 2013 and comes packaged in a beautiful glossy 6 panel wallet, last but not least we have added 5 special bonus tracks from that original demo tape that started it all 30 years ago.

Official release date for this pressing is August 25th with pre orders going live now. Pre orders only will come with a very special limited run 6” x 6” sticker as a pre order bonus item. But this title will be making its official debut first at this year’s largest Christian Metal Fest called SoCal Metal Fest 2 in Orange California on August 12th. Where there will also be a very special performance from 4 of the original members of Vengeance. If that’s not enough for you we will also be making another very special release announcement regarding Vengeance first that day at the show!  You will not want to miss anything, the new CD, this very special one time performance or the special release announcement we will be making first at the show!
