Roxx Records is very excited to announce the release details on two classic Christian Metal titles that had been eluding us for years! Lets start by thrashing it up a little with a very cool first time EVER released CD collection from RED INK!
That’s right we are happy to announce that one of the Lone Star States best classic Christian metal bands RED INK has signed up with Roxx to release both of their classic demo tapes entitled ‘Raw Meat’ (1989) and ‘Brutal Recompense’ (1992). We are happy to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of that very first classic demo tape with the band!
While looking for bonus tracks we learned the band had only ever recorded these two full length demos! BUT Jorge and Ash would go on to record two songs with their next project called Mindkor that were originally written to be included in the third release from RED INK, that sadly never came to be. We are excited to be able to include those two bonus tracks entitled ‘Apostacy’ and ‘Temples of Ignorance’ on here to complete the whole RED INK catalog.
All tracks have been remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound and all new cover art, design and layout are courtesy of Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal Graphics. This will be a one-time special pressing of only 500 copies entitled RED INK – ‘The World After Anthology’. The first 50 pre-orders will also receive a very limited edition RED INK button!
But we are just getting started, we are also extremely excited to be bringing you another cool reissue of an album that was originally released in 1991 and is impossible to find today. Hailing from Bakersfield, California we welcome the band TRAXTER to the Roxx Records line up!
Their one and only album ‘Rock n’ Race’ was a classic in the Christian Metal underground and has been nearly impossible to find, well its time we fix that and bring this one back out to the public. TRAXTER ‘Rock n’ Race – The Finish Line’ will be a limited edition CD pressing of only 500 copies.
When working with the band on bonus tracks for this one we also learned sadly the band had never recorded any other tracks outside of ‘Rock n’ Race’ BUT they did manage to play a new song live that was never properly recorded and we are excited to include that as a bonus track here for all to hear. The track is called ‘Lovin’ Star’ and was intended for the next TRAXTER release that never came to be, but luckily we found a decent live recording of this previously unreleased track and have added it here to complete this TRAXTER collection.
TRAXTER ‘Rock n’ Race – The Finish Line’ all tracks have been remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound and all new cover art, design and layout are courtesy of Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal Graphics. This will be a one-time special pressing of only 500 copies. The first 50 pre-orders will also receive a very limited edition TRAXTER button!
Official release date: May 31, 2019
