1 - 313 - THREE THIRTEEN - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


"Around late-83/early-84, a group called DISCIPLINE took shape in Pittsburgh, PA; transitioning from playing covers into an original hard rock/metal outfit. DISCIPLINE laid down a two-song demo that gained local momentum via the Pittsburgh Steel radio show before disbanding in 1985, at which time the remaining members-founder Doug Appel (guitar), Mark Menold (guitar), and Ned Lyden (drums)-joined forces with two former members of another Pittsburgh act called OVERLORD-bassist David Kendrick and vocalist Tim Aymar (later of PHARAOH, CONTROL DENIED, PSYCHO SCREAM, TRIPLE X, and many more)-and thus 313 was born.By years end 1985, 313 had tracked a whopping 10 songs at Gamut Productions, achieving a striking balance between catchy, melodic hard rock and a heavier lean toward traditional metal. Continued writing, rehearsing, and gigging ensued, amidst which an aggressive, faster-paced drummer by the name of Kirk Henry entered the fold-aiding 313S continued growth toward harder-edged metal. Finally, during the winter of 1987/1988, the group settled into Aircraft Recording Studios to complete what should have been their debut full-length album. Sadly, these would prove to be 313s final sessions. After a failed contract with CBS-distributed PARC Records and a short-lived attempt to remain financially solvent as a cover act (operating under the name of Jet Screamer), mounting tensions within the lineup brought things to an end in 1988.Now, just over 30 years later, Divebomb Records is thrilled to rescue this highly sought-after material from the depths of obscurity with a 20-song, near-complete discography from 313. Fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording, the discs booklet is packed with photographs, press clippings, ephemera, and a nine-page interview with the band. For the fans, by the fans! Divebomb Records Bootcamp Series is unearthing lost sessions, unreleased albums and long forgotten demos by unsung heroes of this scenes past.

2 - ACRIDITY - FOR FREEDOM I CRY (DELUXE) - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


"ACRIDITY got its start in Victoria, TX in 1986, and by the end of the year had solidified a still-teenaged lineup consisting of guitarists Anthony Pedone and Mel Langenberg, Mark Cox (bass), Mark Soto (drums), and frontman Darin Carroll. Combining passions for no-frills, heavy-or-die thrash as well as the sounds of the NWOBHM, the group set out to manifest its own brand of complicated thrash riffs, melodic overtones, and extended song structures-developed in parallel with their influences such as METALLICA, TESTAMENT, KREATOR, and DESTRUCTION.After issuing the four-song Countdown to Terror demo in February of 1988, ACRIDITY entered Becks Studios in Corpus Christi, TX-where DEVASTATION had recorded Violent Termination-in December of 1989 to lay down four new songs for subsequent demo, For Freedom I Cry. An exclusive track, "Whisper of Reality," followed in 1990 on the Voices of a Red God compilation, appearing alongside other Texas greats such as DEADHORSE and THE MORBID (i.e. MORBID SCREAM). At last, 1991 saw the release of the For Freedom I Cry full-length-essentially a combination of both demos (sans "No Mercy") with the addition of two all-new cuts-on CD and LP through Dutch label Prophecy.By the time the album hit the streets, however, ACRIDITY as a hard-charging thrash unit was more or less finished. Despite exploring the notion of relocating to San Francisco to be managed by Debbie Abono (POSSESSED, EXODUS, etc.)-not to mention a bit of interest from Megaforce Records-the band had landed in Austin, TX. Combined with the eras shifting musical landscape and lineup changes that included a keyboard player and hired-gun studio singer, writing became influenced by acts such as FAITH NO MORE and MR. BUNGLE. ACRIDITY morphed into a different outfit called THE GAIA FOUNDATION, and by 1993 it was all over.Since that time, For Freedom I Cry has become an extremely sought-after collectible-routinely fetching well over $100 on CD-so nearly three decades later, Divebomb Records is delighted to collect ACRIDITYS complete discography amidst this deluxe reissue of For Freedom I Cry. Remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording, the disc includes a 20-page booklet with photos, flyers, lyrics, and a retrospective interview with the band. For the fans, by the fans!"

3 - ADDICTIVE - KICK 'EM HARD - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


Few bands survived the rapid decline of thrash metal in the early 90s, but not only did Australias ADDICTIVE soldier on, they released a superb slab of classic speed metal against all odds. Following up their raw, yet impressive 1989 debut album, Pity Of Man, the band enlisted OZZY OSBOURNE/RAINBOW bassist, Bob Daisley, to produce what would become their finest moment. Rumors originally claim misplaced master tapes are the culprit behind the delayed Kick Em Hard 1993 release. No matter the cause ADDICTIVE tried to overcome those delays and had unquestionably upped the ante with Kick Em Hard, revealing a band whose ravenous desire to succeed overshadowed the industrys climate predicting disaster for themselves and their thrash metal brethren. Combining all the best elements of early METALLICA, KREATOR and MEGADETH, ADDICTIVE were a band surely on the rise delivering a crushing sophomore album, but the shifting tides of the music industry unfortunately left them drifting aimlessly by the mid-90s. These two classic albums have been out of print for nearly 20 years and fetching high dollar collector prices online, but ADDICTIVE has remained a cult favorite with die-hard thrash fans. Kick Em Hard (Rebooted Edition) contains brand new mastering of the bands entire discography, interview and a redesigned, full color booklet with archival photos of the bands history. For the fans, by the fans.

"Chicagos AFTERMATH are celebrating their 30th anniversary with the release of their now legendary demo Killing The Future.

5 - ANTAGONIST - DAMNED AND CURSED... TO LIFE ON EARTH - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


When your music is described as "more intense than a pitbull on crack," you know youre doing something right. Although Green Bays legendary ANTAGONIST has not performed in over 20 years, their diabolical, full-throttle assault continues to gain popularity with Heavy Metal fans worldwide. For many years, a single used copy of their much sought-after six track EP has routinely sold for over $100, and in this age of downloading, thats no small sign of respect or credibility.Suspiciously little is known about ANTAGONIST. Since their disappearance in the mid-90s, there have been no signs of life nor any internet presence. It would seem as though ANTAGONIST always knew to leave the world wanting more. Some people claim they still gig on the weekends... in Hell.ANTAGONIST formed in 1993 as a direct consequence against their weaker, trend-driven surroundings. When the band entered Simple Studio in October 1993 to record their debut (and only) release, no one would have foreseen the impact it would have for years to come. Expertly produced and engineered by the bands lead architect, Todd Tousey, and digital wizard, Eric James, the material is more relevant to the Metal scene of 2016 than it was upon its release in January 1994. Walking a perfect line between melodic Death Metal and chaotic Thrash, the material infuses hectic speeds with interesting melodies and a tactful sense of musical muscle-dark and aggressive, yet loaded with energy. Combining elements of Traditional Metal with the intensity of Extreme Metal, the band has referred to their music as "Heavy Black Thrash."Now, more than two decades later, Divebomb Records is proud to bring new life to ANTAGONISTs scorching debut with Damned And Cursed... To Life On Earth; including lyrics, archival photographs, an all-new retrospective band interview, plus a full live set recorded in 1993-all fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios. Or, to be more accurate, in the words of ANTAGONISTs Todd Tousey himself, "This is neither a reissue nor remaster, as it was never mastered the first time. This is the first official release actually; it only took Divebomb Records 22 years to make it happen." Were just glad that he hasnt cut his hair in the meantime!

6 - APOCALYPSE - FAITHLESS (DELUXE) - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


"Swiss thrashers APOCALYPSE formed in 1984 and unleashed a five-song demo the following year, but the group didnt really pick up steam until the release of their self-titled debut album in 1988. As with most bands of that era, APOCALYPSE drew influence from the Bay Area thrash scene, and most notably METALLICA-going so far as to enlist the talents of long-running METALLICA producer, Flemming Rasmussen, to handle the engineering of their debut.A perfectly executed album, Apocalypse is chock full of intense riffs laid over a foundation of intricate and melodically-charged arrangements. The strength of the material comes as no surprise, given that the band spent several years fine-tuning many of the albums nine tracks. Originally released in 1988 by Out of Tune Records-a label owned and operated by female darkwave group, The Vyllies-APOCALYPSE seemed very much out of place on the roster, and without the support of a label completely devoted to the albums success, Apocalypse slowly dwindled towards obscurity.Five years would pass before APOCALYPSE would resurface with their sophomore album, Faithless, in 1993. Attempting not only to overcome their lengthy absence from a scene that had already found itself hanging by a thread, they also faced the challenges of introducing new frontman, Nic Maeder, to the fans. Never willing to sacrifice quality, APOCALYPSE enlisted famed producer, Harris Johns, to help capture their focused vision for a return to glory.Against all odds, APOCALYPSE delivered a much more mature brand of thrash-overflowing with melody while never sacrificing the speed or technicality of their debut. It was the perfect blend of influences, but unfortunately it simply arrived too late to make an impact. Death metal had stormed the scene with an undeniable fury, and groups like APOCALYPSE were too easily pushed aside.Divebomb Records is now excited to present both APOCALYPSE albums in a deluxe edition format: freshly remastered by Jamie King and featuring numerous bonus tracks, a retrospective interview, plus unseen photos from the bands archives. For the fans, by the fans..."

7 - ARBITRATER - BLANCE OF POWER + DARKENED REALITY - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


During the late-80s, legendary U.K. punk band THE VARUKERS underwent an unexpected transformation as its ranks gradually split off into two separate metal-oriented acts. One such group-inspired by the excitement and energy of albums such as METALLICAs Kill Em All in contrast to what was perceived as a stale and apathetic punk scene at the time-ARBITRATER, led by VARUKERS frontman Anthony "Rat" Martin, would proceed to self-release two full-length albums of taught, crunchy, and subtly melodic underground thrash: 1991s Balance of Power, and 1993s Darkened Reality.Despite the strength of the recordings and performing handfuls of shows alongside fellow U.K. thrash lords XENTRIX and SLAMMER, among others, ARBITRATER ran its course before securing the wider exposure that a proper record label may have offered. As a result, out of print for many years, both albums have become extremely sought-after collectibles-so much so that Rat himself was forced to pay 93 for a single copy of Balance of Power for use as source material for this very collection; and Darkened Reality has been documented to have once sold for over $600!So now, more than two decades later, Divebomb Records is proud to represent ARBITRATER via this massive double-disc set, featuring both Balance of Power (appearing for the first time ever on CD) and Darkened Reality, as well as The Conquest demo from 1988-all fully remastered and restored by Jamie King at The Basement Recording. In addition, the packaging includes an insightful new interview with ARBITRATER main man Anthony "Rat" Martin, conducted by renowned musician and author Ian Glasper.

8 - AUTUMN SILENCE - ECHOES IN THE GARDEN - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


AUTUMN SILENCE originally formed in 1987, when a group of high school friends banded together under the name PROPHECY. As a stable lineup settled into place, the quartet eventually changed names to MIDNIGHT DIVINE, and-with the addition of vocalist John Leese-recorded two previously unreleased tracks of searing progressive metal influenced by their growing interest in bands such as CRIMSON GLORY, FATES WARNING, and VICIOUS RUMORS; as well as classical, jazz fusion, and prog rock.This hard-hitting style carried over into the early-90s, as the group had rebranded itself AUTUMN SILENCE and released the three-song Winters Calling EP in 1991-their first outing with former WITHOUT WARNING vocalist Mike Gorham in tow. Encouraged by interest from Shrapnel Records honcho Mike Varney, AUTUMN SILENCE branched out even further on their final EP-1994s Echoes In The Garden-pushing themselves towards a loftier, more keyboard-centric direction that explored their love of progressive rock outfits like YES, KING CRIMSON, and-most importantly-GENESIS.The band continued working on new material into the mid-90s, but-ultimately unable to secure a record deal-gradually succumbed to the pressures of time and dissipated before the end of 1996. The music lives on, however, so now-more than 20 years later-Divebomb Records is excited to present Echoes In The Garden: the complete, 11-song discography collection of AUTUMN SILENCE; fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording; and including an in-depth, retrospective interview with the band.

9 - AZRAEL - TELEVISION SLAVE - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


"Formed in 1986 by high school buddies Ken Andrews (OBITUARY) and Matt Riley, AZRAEL released a pair of demos early during their run (1987s Azrael and 1988s Welcome), but it wasnt until Brian Christopher, Steve Zentner and Bob Koeble (Death) joined in 1989 and 1990, respectively, that things really began to gel for the group. The new lineup began demoing material while honing their live chops opening for such acts as DEATH ANGEL, REVEREND, EXODUS, and VICIOUS RUMORS.Recording most of the songs that would eventually become Television Slave in 1990, AZRAEL originally opted to use the material exclusively for promotional purposes, sending the cassettes to record labels. As time passed, and with no label interest in sight, they decided to go back and tweak out the recordings for a proper cassette release in 1992. The group sold all 1,000 copies of Television Slave they had pressed, which is remarkable because by that time, the music industry was definitely shifting away from heavy metal. AZRAEL noticed this change, leading to their decision to disband soon after.The limited edition CD release contains not only the original 7 tracks contained on the Television Slave cassette (newly mastered from original digital sources), but also several additional recordings made during that period that have never been released. Also, as a bonus, we have included their 1988 cassette release, Welcome.Divebomb Records Bootcamp Series is unearthing lost sessions, unreleased albums and long forgotten demos by unsung heroes of this scenes past.These are cult bands for cult fans.

10 - BANSHEE - RACE AGAINST TIME/CRY IN THE NIGHT - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


"Rising from the Midwestern hard rock scene of the mid-80s, BANSHEE was a band that balanced traditional heavy metal with melodic hard rock with winning results. Featuring former members of such underground Kansas City groups as GRANMAX and FRODO, BANSHEE was fronted by Tommy Lee Flood, a vocalist that many have compared to Ronnie James Dio in his range and power. A few years after forming, BANSHEE self-released their Cry in the Night EP, selling so many copies independently that both Metal Blade and Atlantic Records courted the young act.BANSHEE ended up signing on with A&R legend Jason Flom at Atlantic Records, but not before licensing the EP to Metal Blade, in turn bringing international attention to the group. 1989 found the quartet releasing their debut album, Race Against Time, an 11-song collection that focused on their more melodic tendencies. Despite MTVs Headbangers Ball giving the bands "Shoot Down the Night" video healthy airplay, behind-the-scenes drama lead to Banshee being dropped by Atlantic Records. The group would break up in 1993 after releasing their Take Em By Storm that year on their own Snowblind label.Now, over 30 years since BANSHEE formed, Divebomb Records is excited to bring you the Race Against Time + Cry In The Night 2CD set with each release pressed on its own CD. The remastered collection will feature archival BANSHEE photos from throughout their career. In addition, theres a new interview with guitarist Terry Dunn done by NoEcho.nets Carlos Ramirez especially for this reissue. With both titles long out of print, this is your chance to own two pieces of melodic hard rock gold all over again."

11 - BENEATH THE SURFACE - RACE THE NIGHTS (DELUXE) - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


SURFACE was formed in Birmingham, England circa 1980 by school friends John Bennett (bass), Mike Cheshire (guitar), and Paul Drew (guitar); who then recruited Tony Floyd (vocals) and Jamie Hawkins (drums). Lineup shifts saw Gez Finnegan replace Tony on vocals, Jamies younger brother Ian come in on bass, guitarist Mark Davies supplant Paul, and the addition of Dean Field on keyboards. This lineup somehow managed to secure a six-week tour of France before ever recording a single note-after which Loz Rabone replaced Mike on guitar and the lineup stabilized.A little-known four-song demo was laid down at Warwickshire studio The Barn in 1985 (complete with the late, great Tony Mills of SHY/TNT fame on backing vocals), which caught the attention of the Killerwatt label (ANGEL WITCH, U.K. SUBS, etc.), who were so impressed by SURFACES live performances that they offered the group an opportunity to record a live album. The 10-song, 46-minute Race the Night was captured at a hometown gig at The Railway in Birmingham and issued on LP in the summer of 1986-a powerful representation of the bands energetic take on metal-tinged hard rock/AOR anthems.Another tour of France ensued, and American label JCI eventually stepped in to distribute the album on CD/LP/cassette in the U.S. around 1988. This resulted in all-new cover art and a name change: BENEATH THE SURFACE. The sextet continued writing new material and began developing toward a more commercial style, but a faulty management deal had started to halt progress. As is all-too-often the case, the band never recovered. Its members gradually focused on other projects, and Race the Night was relegated to "unsung gem" status.Bootlegged by a Spanish label in 2005, Divebomb Records is now thrilled to present the first official BENEATH THE SURFACE reissue in over 30 years! Rounded out by the groups rare 1985 demo, this 14-track, hour-long discography has been completely remastered by Jamie King Audio. As always, the disc will be presented alongside a booklet packed with information-including a retrospective interview with BENEATH THE SURFACE. For the fans, by the fans!

12 - BETRAYEL - DEATH SHALL OVERCOME - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


BETRAYEL formed in Fresno, CA in 1985 with Chris Campise on bass/vocals, guitarists James Carter and James Johnson, and Arlie Patton on drums. Influenced by the burgeoning sounds ofMETALLICA, EXODUS, and SLAYER, BETRAYEL quickly announced their primal thrash metal fury by opening their debut demo-1986s Helpless Souls-with a bold mission statement: "Attentionposers: prepare to die!" The following year found the group appearing on Godly Records Raging Death compilationalongside early incarnations of future greats ATHEIST (as R.A.V.A.G.E.) and OBITUARY (as XECUTIONER), before work ensued on a second demo: Death Shall Overcome. BETRAYEL thensecured its highest-profile appearance to date in 1990 with the opening track on Metal Blades Metal Massacre Ten compilation, all the while respectfully maintaining their singular focus onintense, raging thrash. Even early on, BETRAYEL had opened for names such as ANTHRAX, DEATH ANGEL, OVERKILL, etc.; and would go on to share the stage with a huge number of impressive acts such as AUTOPSY, DARK ANGEL, KREATOR, LaaZ ROCKIT, and VOIVOD. Having amassed an impressive cache of songs that had yet to be recorded, the band was prepping to sign with Mechanic Records, before management issues saw BETRAYEL passed over for VIO-LENCE instead. By the end of 1990, BETRAYEL was finished. Finally, almost three decades after the fact, Divebomb Records is proud to grant BETRAYELs recordings a long overdue discography collection: Death Shall Overcome. The 20-song CD includes tracks from the Helpless Souls and Death Shall Overcome demos, the Raging Death and Metal Massacre Ten compilations, plus eight previously unreleased live cuts recorded in 1988. Fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording, the disc is housed alongside an extensive booklet loaded with archival photos/flyers and a retrospective interview with the band.

13 - BETSY - BETSY - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


Betsy Weiss, aka BETSY BITCH, has been a mainstay in the hard rock and heavy metal scene since the early 80s. The Los Angeles-based vocalists band, BITCH, was the first band to ever release a record on future indie label giant Metal Blade. Despite BITCHs success, Weiss agreed to change the name of the band to BETSY in 1988 to see if it could help them reach a wider audience. Originally released by Metal Blade, Betsy has been out of print for years now. Thats where Divebomb Records come into the picture. The label secured the rights to reissue the album and worked closely with BETSY BITCH on the expanded liner notes. Not only does the CD include a brand new interview with the singer, it also features photos from her personal archives. BITCH is still active decades later, performing with artists like Doro and Loudness, and playing festivals throughout the globe. If you love hard rock and AOR, the Betsy album deserves a space in your CD collection!

14 - BEWITCHER - BEWITCHER - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


"Rock n roll is the devils music, and heavy metal its bastard child. In the 1980s, Americas radical fundamentalist Christian right-wing waged a war against this music, bringing its practitioners and its unholy muse to the forefront of the public consciousness.Over a quarter-century later, the devils rock n roll is still alive and well, but the war is far from over.And so it came to pass...In the 13th year of Satans third millennium, a new force arose to defend the ways of old. BEWITCHER is the ancient black flame of magic, mayhem, freedom, and liberation-burning in blatant opposition to the laughable norms of this modern age. Instead, they look to that bygone era, before its pollution by crybaby emo wimps, when heavy metal-in all its glory-truly represented the tenets upon which it was founded.May your children be corrupted, may your foundations be shaken, may your mundane existences be forever altered, for this spell cannot be broken...Fall and obey! And beware the curse of the BEWITCHER!Divebomb Records is thrilled to present the blackened speed metal of BEWITCHER. Their self-titled debut was produced by Joel Grind (TOXIC HOLOCAUST, LORD DYING, COLISEUM) and features 9 tracks sure to appeal to fans of MIDNIGHT, VENOM, CELTIC FROST, TOXIC HOLOCAUST and BATHORY."

16 - BUGZY - PLAN B - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


The roots of BUGZY date back to late-1983, when 19-year-old guitarist/vocalist William "Bugsy" Boyer, keyboard player Franki Gorgo, and drummer Bob Kimmel crossed paths as members of a full-time, internationally touring cover band called PENTAGON. By 1985, Bob and Franki had struck out to create their own original material in an attempt to sell songs to a major artist or publishing company. Initially still a member of Pentagon, Bugsy would join their sessions whenever his schedule allowed, but by 1988 the three had officially joined forces and fleshed out a lineup to begin performing live-"BUGZY" being the simple result of needing a name for their first gig.Within a year, a short-lived production deal with producer Tony Bongiovi led the group to record a few tracks in New York Citys historic Power Station studio; and in 1990, a production/management deal with L.A. record producer John Ryan (SANTANA, etc.) resulted in three years of nonstop work on new material with an assortment of session musicians. Into the mid-90s, with the help of hit record producer Chris Lord-Alge, BUGZY was courted by no less than three major labels-RCA, Polygram, and EMI-but the trios decade of hard work would shockingly fail to yield the release of one single piece of music......until now! 20+ years later, Divebomb Records is proud to shed light on BUGZYs Plan B: 17 tracks of spectacularly catchy AOR/hard rock culled from the bands extensive personal archives, and graciously rescued from permanent obscurity. Sure to delight diehard fans of heavy-hitters such as BAD ENGLISH, NIGHT RANGER, GIANT and THE HOOTERS; the collection also boasts an all-new 20 page booklet featuring band interview covering the ins and outs behind this prolific songwriting team. For the fans, by the fans!Divebomb Records Bootcamp Series is unearthing lost sessions, unreleased albums and long forgotten demos by unsung heroes of this scenes past.

18 - CJSS - PRAISE THE LOUD (DELUXE) - (CD)    NEW
DIVEBOMB


"Legendary guitarist David T. Chastain formed CJSS during the mid-80s, bringing with him two former members-Mike Skimmerhorn (bass) and Les Sharp (drums)-of his prior outfit, SPIKE, alongside charismatic vocalist Russell Jinkens (formerly of PRIZONER). The intention was for Chastain to focus on writing and performing his own original material in a manner true to his artistic vision. Based solely on the popularity of both SPIKE and PRIZONER, more than 1,000 fans attended the very first CJSS live performance at Bogarts in Cincinnati, OH!Having just released their debut full-length, World Gone Mad, in January of 1986, mere months later CJSS returned to Counterpart Creative Studios with Dale "Smitty" Smith to record sophomore outing, Praise the Loud. Their second full-length album to see the light during 1986-once again via Chastains Leviathan Records-the LPs 38 minutes represent an adventurous affair that finds the songwriting fine-tuned toward an even catchier brand of scorching, fist-raising heavy metal. More live shows ensued, but the initially productive run of CJSS would begin to ease up in the years that followed (though David T. Chastain himself would remain highly active with a number of other projects).Over 30 years after the fact, Divebomb Records is excited to present this expanded edition of Praise the Loud-for the first time ever on standalone CD! The core nine-song full-length has been bolstered by four rare demo tracks that never found their way onto a proper CJSS album. Fully remastered by Jamie King Audio, the set will be housed alongside a detailed booklet including a retrospective interview with David T. Chastain and Russell Jinkens.

Based solely on the popularity of both SPIKE and PRIZONER, more than 1,000 fans attended the very first CJSS live performance at Bogarts in Cincinnati, OH; and by the summer of 1985 the group had already entered Counterpart Creative Studios to begin tracking their debut full-length with engineer Dale "Smitty" Smith.Released in January of 1986 through Chastains own Leviathan Records (with a European pressing through Black Dragon Records), the 37-minute World Gone Mad was packed with powerfully diverse, melodic heavy metal anthems and scorching leads aplenty-while lyrical themes encouraged listeners to hold strong in the face of the fear, anger, and depression of the world around them. A quick U.S. tour in support of the album followed, and the admirably productive musicians would find themselves right back in the studio mere months later!Over 30 years after the fact, Divebomb Records is excited to present this expanded edition of World Gone Mad-for the first time ever on standalone CD!

21 - CROWS - THE DYING RACE (DELUXE) - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


CROWS origins begin as far back as 1981 in Germany, but it took the band nearly ten years to finally land a record deal. The result, thankfully, was their one and only masterpiece, The Dying Race. CROWS, while championing a melodic power metal style, signed to then German upstart label, Century Media Records, in 1990 and found themselves buried and a bit out of place within the labels predominantly death metal roster. However, that didnt stop them from making one of the best power metal records you have probably never heard before.CROWS as a group may not be instantly recognizable, but its members on the other hand surely went onto bigger things once they disbanded. Vocalist, Leszek "Leo" Szpigiel has fronted SCANNER and MEKONG DELTA while both drummer, Bobby Schottkowski and guitarist, Bernd Kost wound up on German thrash powerhouse, SODOM. Finally bassist, Frank "Banx" Bankowski, served as the key member of ANGEL DUST throughout that bands history. Whatever the case may be, CROWS, seemed to have the deck stacked against them from the onset, but it didnt prevent The Dying Race from happening - which is the blessing in disguise.Divebomb Records has stepped in to make sure The Dying Race is never to be forgotten with this special deluxe edition reissue. The liner notes feature new interview with CROWS founding member, Bobby Schottkowski. Besides containing brand new remastered album audio it also includes 7, band supplied, demo tracks (3 of which are unreleased). This is the ultimate edition of a true power metal classic.

22 - CYCLONE TEMPLE - I HATE THEREFOR I AM - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


In the late-80s, following lineup changes that found ZNOWHITE guitarist Greg Fulton and bassist Scott Schafer joined by John Slattery on drums and powerhouse ex-Hammeron vocalist Brian Troch, a name change was imminent. Rechristened as CYCLONE TEMPLE, the group signed on with Combat Records and entered Normandy Sound in Warren, RI to track their debut album, I Hate Therefore I Am, with engineer Tom Soares.A soulful masterpiece of thrash, I Hate Therefore I Am hit stores in 1991, and CYCLONE TEMPLE toured with a variety of acts before being unceremoniously dismissed from their label during a Sony takeover. As such, the groundbreaking creativity, intelligence, emotion, and power of I Hate Therefore I Am unjustly failed to make its mark. A frustrated Troch walked away, and CYCLONE TEMPLE soldiered on to release an EP (Building Errors in the Machine, 1993) with singer Marco Salinas, and follow-up album My Friend Lonely - with yet another frontman, Sonny DeLuca-before throwing in the towel in 1994.But, its never too late to have ones mind blown to bits by a criminally underrated thrash classic such as I Hate Therefore I Am, so now, over 25 years later-and for the first time since 1999-Divebomb Records is proud to make I Hate Therefore I Am once again available on CD. Remastered by Jamie King at The Basement, the disc will be packaged with a retrospective essay featuring brand new commentary from Fulton, Troch, and Slattery; plus nearly 20 reverential quotes contributed by members of AFTERMATH and SINDROME (among others), as well as authors from Decibel, Rock Hard, and many more. Youll also find a reprinted CYCLONE TEMPLE interview feature from Detonator fanzine #2, conducted in 1991. For the fans, by the fans!

23 - CYCLONE TEMPLE - MY FRIEND LONELY (DELUXE) - (C+D) 
DIVEBOMB


Formed as simply a metamorphosis of cult speed metal act, ZNOWHITE,Chicagos CYCLONE TEMPLE stormed back onto the thrash metal scene with their Combat Records debut album, I Hate Therefore I Am, and the future was finally looking extremely prosperous for the band. Unfortunately, as with far too many bands back then, they were unable to fully capitalize on the growing momentum because of personal struggles within their ranks and then the sudden closing of Combat Records. When Sony Records closed the doors at Combat Records this left CYCLONE TEMPLE without a label, but instead of calling it quits the band regrouped and soldiered on. They continued combining elements of thrash metal, groove and even reggae into a style we think was misunderstood and too far ahead of its time back in the early 90s. Building Errors In The Machine and My Friend Lonely these two formerly independent and diverse releases are collected here in this deluxe edition reissue with remastered audio and new essay by Editor-in-Chief of AOL Musics Noisecreep, Carlos Ramirez.

24 - D.A.M. - INSIDE OUT - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


Historically speaking England could be considered the birthplace of heavy metal with the likes of BLACK SABBATH forging a new path for heavy music. But during the 1980s the thrash metal movement stronghold was America and UK bands like D.A.M. (alongside XENTRIX, DEATHWISH and ONSLAUGHT) fought tooth and nail to make their impact heard from across the Atlantic. Knowingly an uphill battle, D.A.M. managed to release two impressive albums (1989s Human Wreckage and 1991s Inside Out) during their initial years. Two albums, despite being tracked in Germany with legendary producer Harris Johns, are distinctively British in their use of simplistic and crunching riffs rather than relying solely on technical aptitude. The strength of big chords and rousing choruses were employed by D.A.M. to great success. Human Wreckage and Inside Out have maintained popularity (even if long out of print) due to the bands original desire to cross boundaries and stave off being labeled haphazardly as simply another "thrash band," but instead be remembered as a classic British heavy metal band.

25 - DEAD ON - DEAD ON (DELUXE) - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


Long Islands DEAD ON took a major risk and decided to self-finance the recording of what would become their debut album, Dead On. Enlisting top producer, Roger Probert (FATES WARNING, LOUDNESS) the band record their album independently hoping to land a deal. They landed a deal quickly and at the behest of their new label, mixing engineer and industry heavyweight, Max Norman was brought in to finish the album. Nine tracks of immaculate, sometimes macabre, American heavy metal. Inspired by classic acts like IRON MAIDEN and MERCYFUL FATE the band also infused influences of the thrash/speed metal dominated era to develop a style that was all their own. Not necessarily aggressive enough to be called thrash, but much heavier than the classic styles of heavy metal - this was DEAD ON. The album has been out of print for years, but now with the release of this limited Dead On (Deluxe Edition) not only do fans get the classic album and three music videos, but also their All Four You EP, unreleased cover of "Turning Japanese" plus ultra rare demo tape, "The Limit." For the fans, by the fans.

26 - DEADLY BLESSING - PSYCHO DRAMA (DELUXE) - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


"In 1989, following the success of their debut album, Ascend From the Cauldron, New Jersey power metallers DEADLY BLESSING made the pivotal decision to part ways with their iconic-yet-polarizing frontman, Norman "Ski" Kiersznowski. In search of a more aggressive singer who could still be melodic, the band approached Larry Betson; whose gruffer, less over-the-top approach provided a perfect fit as the group continued to open for increasingly heavier national acts such as BIOHAZARD, DARK ANGEL, and PANTERA.The following year, influenced by hardcore thrash from the Bay Area to New York, DEADLY BLESSING recorded two hard-hitting demos-the well-received Psycho Drama, and the never officially released Mechanical Solutions-before rechristening themselves OPTIMUS PRIME for one last demo, taking some inspiration from that eras increasingly ubiquitous "grunge"-leaning sounds. However, as work began on their sophomore full-length, internal uncertainties combined with label and management woes left the group without a proper home, and the lineup eventually unraveled.So now, more than 25 years later, Divebomb Records is beyond thrilled to finally deliver this deluxe edition of Psycho Drama: a massive two-disc set representing the Larry Betson era of DEADLY BLESSING into OPTIMUS PRIME across 18 studio and 4 live tracks-many appearing here for the first time ever-fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording. Youll also find archival photographs, studio memories from Psycho Drama engineer Bob Kimmel, and an all-new retrospective interview with the band. For the fans, by the fans!"

27 - DEATHROW - LIFE BEYOND - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


Formed in western Germany in 1984 under the name Samhain-and releasing three demos prior to rechristening themselves DEATHROW in 1986 for their debut full-length outing, Riders of Doom (a.k.a. Satans Gift)-DEATHROWs early years laid a foundation of relentless Teutonic thrash. In 1988, however, guitarist Thomas Priebe was replaced with Uwe Osterlehner, which ushered in a much more technical and dynamic approach for the groups third album, Deception Ignored.Four years later, having severed ties with Noise Records, 1992s Life Beyond became DEATHROWs lone outing as a part of the growing roster of West Virginia Records (run by Andy and Sabina Classen from Holy Moses). Having decided that Deception Ignored may have been overly complex in hindsight, the quartet opted to streamline their approach for album number four: injecting Deception Ignoreds intricacy and melody with a dose of focused, aggressive thrash from their early roots-a fitting end to the "second phase" of DEATHROWs career.Now, nearly 25 years later, Divebomb Records is proud to present this expanded reissue of DEATHROWs Life Beyond-fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording, and including a slew of archival photographs direct from the band plus full lyrics as well as a brand new essay by Andrew Westerhouse (of NoEcho.net) with participation from guitarist, Uwe Osterlehner.

28 - DEGRADATION - REVELATION IN BLOOD (DELUXE) - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


DEGRADATION formed in 1992 amidst the same Florida scene that had spawned such greats as DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, OBITUARY, and countless others. That same year, the group laid down a raw, never-released demo with the help of Jon Oliva and Chris Caffery from the legendary SAVATAGE, but it wasnt until January of 1993 that DEGRADATION would enter Anything Audio in Pinellas Park, FL to record their proper debut demo, Look Into the Sadness (which was re-released later that year with some additional leads from newfound second guitarist Jeremy Baird, a.k.a. Jer Storm).A marketing machine, the band sold more than 2,500 copies of the demo and scored rave reviews from magazines and fanzines around the globe before entering the world-renowned Morrisound Recording to begin work on the Revelation in Blood EP with Tom and Jim Morris. Originally released in 1994, Revelation in Blood was packed with technical, death-tinged thrash reminiscent of SADUS meets FORCED ENTRY-self-described by DEGRADATIONs own Dana Walsh as "very dark, very progressive, very technical speed metal with a little more of a groove-based attack to the songwriting."Unfortunately, shortly after the EPs release, DEGRADATION began to fall apart, suffering frequent lineup changes before Walsh-the original founding member-decided to put the group to rest upon receiving an offer to join up with fellow Tampa residents BRUTALITY for their third full-length, In Mourning. But Revelation in Blood remains an incredibly rare unsung classic from Morrisounds heyday-at times fetching more than $100 on CD-so now, more than 20 years later, Divebomb Records is proud to shed new light on DEGRADATIONs complete discography with this brand new reissue. Fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording, the packaging includes complete lyrics, loads of archival flyers and photos, and a retrospective interview with Dana Walsh conducted by NoEcho.net co-editor Andrew Aversionline.

29 - DESPAIR - BEYOND ALL REASON - (CD) 
DIVEBOMB


Formed in Germany in 1986, DESPAIR dealt out thrash of the highest order over the course of their next six years together. Originally lead by vocalist Robert Kampf, DESPAIR issued their debut album, History of Hate, in 1988, but he exited the band before their next full-length so he could concentrate his energy on Century Media, the future label powerhouse he founded that year. The group then hired former APOSTASY vocalist Andreas Henschel as Kampfs replacement and released their critically acclaimed sophomore full-length, 1990s Decay of Humanity.By the time the band went into Tonstudio Mohrmann in Bochum, Germany to record their next album, guitarist Waldemar Sorychta emerged as a force to reckon with, in front and behind the scenes. The guitarist seized the producer reigns on 1991s Beyond All Reason, a well-rounded onslaught of thrash and more traditionally minded heavy metal that is the finest moment in their discography. As fierce as Beyond All Reason proved to be, it was sadly their swan song.Divebomb Records is excited, at long last, to reissue DESPAIRs third and final album, Beyond All Reason. This reissue features all new digital mastering with expanded layout featuring lyrics and brand new essay by Carlos Ramirez (of NoEcho.net). For the fans, by the fans...

30 - DEUS VULT - LOOK UPON YOUR MASTER: THE DEMO ANTHOLOGY - (CD)    NEW
DIVEBOMB


By mid-1986, after heavy metal cover band OZIAS-featuring guitarists Brent Chasteen and Mark Engel-fell apart while transitioning toward writing original material, the foundation was laid for DEUS VULTs formation. Brent and Mark hooked up with drummer Virgil D.B., and by 1987 had secured Tom Mangan on bass and Duane Harmon on vocals-a lineup that would produce the bands debut three-song demo in 1988. Shortly after that demo, Duane was replaced by former THRUSTER frontman Aaron Thomas, and DEUS VULTs most prolific run began.Before years-end 1988, the unit crossed into Kentucky to hit Group Effort Sound Studios, resulting in an hour-long 13-song demo of impressively taut and aggressive thrash. 1989 saw the quintet re-record "Twilights Last Gleaming" for the now-collectible Heavy Artillery compilation from Auburn Records-appearing - alongside Ohio-based acts such as BREAKER, HATRIX, PURGATORY, etc. 1990s proper cassette EP, Soul Assault, was then recorded at Queen City Music-the result of funding from taking first prize in a local Battle of the Bands competition-with assistance from guitar legend David T. Chastain on its final mix. Unfortunately, DEUS VULTs increasingly dark and technical brand of thrash failed to achieve wider distribution at the time, as financial shortages are rumored to have limited Soul Assault to as few as 150 copies.Personnel shake-ups eventually landed on Aaron Thomas taking over bass in addition to vocals, and in 1991 the group completed their final six-song demo at Ultrasuede Studios (formerly Queen City Music). As with Soul Assault, these sessions yielded increasingly long songs that-while retaining a rugged sense of aggression-were becoming more melodic, complex, and adventurous. Sadly, the recordings were never officially circulated, as Aaron left the band, which ultimately signaled the end for DEUS VULT.But now, nearly three decades later, Divebomb Records is ecstatic to finally issue this double-CD set representing DEUS VULT circa 1989 - 1991. This includes the 13-song Group Effort sessions (1989), Heavy Artillery compilation track, Soul Assault EP, and the final recordings from Ultrasuede Studios for a total of 25 tracks and over two hours of highly underrated thrash excellence! Completely remastered by Jamie King Audio, the discs booklet will be packed with assorted ephemera, as well as a lengthy retrospective interview with the band.
