Roxx Records Signs Boarders!

Roxx Records is very excited to announce that Italian thrash band ‘Boarders’ have just signed on to their roster for the release of their sophomore effort entitled ‘R- Existence’. While the band had briefly offered this new release as a free digital only download to their fanbase, it is now being remastered to include 5 additional bonus tracks and put on to CD for the very first time.

A band that can trace its history back to the late eighties, Boarders presents a unique melding of the aggressive thrash and melodic metal that draws extensively from the musical trends of that era. And nowhere is that more evident than on the material from the groups debut ‘The World Hates Me’ which was released in 2009.

R-Existence marks a return to form of that melding of thrash and metal with songs certain to garner the attention of those into Megadeth, Metallica, and old school Deliverance. As a matter of fact, Boarders once gained notoriety in Italy as a Megadeth tribute band; hence, the inclusion of the old Megadeth song “In My Darkest Hour” (off So Far, So Good, So What) on their debut release.

Bill Bafford of Roxx Records had this to say about the signing, “We are very excited to be working with Boarders on this release, we have been becoming more and more focused on the thrash scene as the label expands and Boarders is an excellent addition to our roster”.

Watch for the Limited Edition CD version of R-Existence and reissued digital editions to hit the streets on December 11, 2012. Watch Roxx Productions for full release details.

20 Years of Ultimatum

Ultimatum have been hard at work in the studio recording 4 brand new tracks which are scheduled to be a part of the band’s 20th Anniversary release entitled ‘Heart of Metal – 20 Years of Ultimatum’. The remainder of the tracks are set to be a selection of greatest hits selected from the band’s back catalog as voted on by their fans.

Ultimatum has once again signed on with Roxx Records for this brand new release. Being that this is the bands 20th Anniversary, Roxx really wanted to do this one up right for the band and their fans. “We were tossing around the idea of a kick starter, but felt the model is already a little dated” says Bill from Roxx Productions, “we didn’t want to burn people out on the concept, so we decided to get a little creative.”

Ultimaniacs will be happy to know that they can help the band with their recording costs and the label to produce a very special box set! We will be producing and pre-selling a hand numbered, black glossy print, silver embossed box set that will be hand numbered 1 through 100. Only 100 of this box will ever be made, never to be produced again! No gimmicks, no quotas to meet, you pre-order it you will get it!

But wait! There is more! Everyone that gets in on the box set preorder WILL win one of the many pieces of Ultimatum memorabilia donated by the band! All those true Ultimaniacs will be entered in to this very special drawing where we will be giving away many items from the bands personal archives, including Rob Whitlock’s BC Rich Warlock bass guitar, Scott Waters’ custom embroidered satin scarf off his mic stand, signed drum heads and drum sticks, shirts, posters and more! Every one that gets in on this box set pre-order WILL win a prize! And by purchasing this box set you will in turn be helping the band and label fund this project! And there won’t be a long wait. This special box set is already in production and will be delivered before the official CD release which is schedule for October 30th 2012!

Again there will only be 100 of this specially printed box set ever produced, so get your preorder in now before they are gone forever! Also a BIG thank you goes out to Dave Besanson for developing the new artwork for us!

We just posted some pictures of this beautiful 2 sided T-Shirt on the pre-order link! The shirts feature a listing of every contributing artist from HIC2B!

Want to hear some new LNJ from “HICTB”? Jim Madonna has put together some very cool vids for a few of the songs including an acoustic version of “Sin” featuring the late/great Jani Lane!!!!

Sin” (acoustic version)  Jani Lane

Stretch Armstrong”  Louis St. August (MASS), Keri Kelli (Alice Cooper) & JK Northrup (King Kobra/ XYZ)

Hell Is Coming To Breakfast”  Seann Nichols (Adler’s Appetite / Tarsha), JK Northrup (King Kobra/XYZ)

Your Memory Just Won’t Do” [Previously unreleased on CD] David Cagle, Alex Grossi (Quiet Riot) & CJ Snare (Firehouse)

Also, we invite you to a very special premiere of the ‘Lyrics Version’ of ‘Sin’ featuring Jani Lane. The song was already moving and inspiring people on its own, but when you read along to the lyrics combined with his beautifully haunting vocal performance, the video is even more moving. Jani had hand picked this song from Liberty n Justice as he was presented with several options and I think it is clear to see just why!

Anyone who may have questioned where his heart was at the time of his passing, I think it’s clear to see through this song, which is one of his very last vocal recordings, that he had made his peace with God and that we will all see him again one day!

We are proud to present to you ‘Sin’ featuring Jani Lane the latest video from Liberty n Justice upcoming new album ‘Hell is coming to Breakfast’…
