Veil of Deception: Dissident Voices

No Life Til Metal Records are very excited to bring you our latest signing of straight up in your face heavy metal music hailing from Vienna, Austria! VEIL OF DECEPTION (VoD) are a heavy/groove oriented metal combo formed in January 2013. Often compared to bands like Flotsam and Jetsam, 90’s Anthrax, Fates Warning or even Black Sabbath, VoD always stood out because of their distinct sound and lead vocalist Daniel’s classic metal vocal approach. Having played alongside well-known metal heavyweights like Flotsam and Jetsam, Rage, Nervosa, Blaze Bayley or Visigoth and with two highly-acclaimed full-length albums (“Deception Unveiled” and “Tearing Up The Roots”) under their belts, this 4-piece Austrian outfit decided to join forces with No Life Til Metal Records for the release of their highly anticipated third album, which will be cleverly titled “Dissident Voices”.

As usual, it will be as heavy, catchy, groovy and as soulful as ever with their brilliant amalgamation of metal styles, moods and vibes. VoD are surely ready for take-off… and we are inviting you to join us as we take off on this exciting journey!

The band is set to release their third full length album ‘Dissident Voices’ on No Life til Metal Records this May 31st, 2019. Featuring 11 brand new tracks and the debut single ‘Crooked Lines’

Track Listing:
1. Tragedy Brings Clarity
2. Missing Heartbeats
3. Crooked Lines
4. Wrong End of the Stick
5. Dissident Voices
6. End Coming to an End
7. The Tyranny of Hope
8. Forgotten Rain
9. Bonds of Disaffection
10. Would’ve Beens & Could’ve Beens
11. Memories in the Attic

NLTM Records to release Limited Edition book and CD from Heathens Rage

Epic Underground Metal Band Heathens Rage Immortalized In First-Ever Limited Edition Book and Live CD.

No Life Til Metal Records will simultaneously release a live CD and a very special book about New Jersey underground heroes Heathens Rage on May 31st, 2019.

The Limited Edition live CD, titled ‘Knights At Switlik’, is an incredible artifact of Heathens Rage history. It captures the band at Switlik Park Pavilion, a little league baseball field recreation hall on May 31st 1985. At this point in the band’s career, Heathens Rage were together for about a year. They were still in the fledgling stage of writing original material so most of the set consisted of cover songs by their favorite metal bands such as Dio, Fates Warning, and Warlord. The only originals performed at this show were “Power Of The Sword,” “Knights Of Steel, :and “City Of Hell.”

Heathens Rage’s increasing popularity created an opportunity for the band to rent out a hall, arranged by manager John Burlaga, and branch out beyond the local talent shows that they dominated.

Knights At Switlik was mastered at Bombworks Studio by Rob Colwell. Minor improvements, such as light de-hissing and channel balancing were made in order to preserve the raw intensity of the original soundboard recording.

Heathens Rage ‘Knights At Switlik’ will be a limited edition CD pressing of 500 pieces with a killer 12 page booklet filled with even more previously unreleased photos and liner notes.

Rage Days: The Illustrated Hstory Of Heathens Rage features hundreds of photos of the band as well as new interviews with eight members speaking about Heathens Rage’s entire history. The 32 page full color book is a true Limited Edition collectible that fans of Rage and metal in general are going to love and want to add to their Metal collections!

Co-author Chris Bade witnessed Rage’s first public appearance at the Battle of the Bands at Hightstown High School on October 27th 1984, and that sealed his fate as a Rage fan for life. He documented their journey by saving setlists, tickets, flyers, and guitar picks, as well as photographing seven of their shows over a three-year period. This is the first time that he has opened up his massive concert archives to the public.

Co-author and No Life Til Metal Records co-owner Scott Waters had a similar journey since Bade, Tony Lee, and manager John Burlaga all went to the same high school and were also going to concerts together. Waters witnessed many Rage shows as well as drawing an early logo for the band. His photographs are being publicly shared for the first time, documenting some of the band’s early performances at the Electric Playground, formerly the club called River Rocks where Twisted Sister played back in 1983.

The authors also had the extreme privilege of being granted access to the manager’s and band members’ personal archives of photos, flyers, shirts, and memorabilia that they had collected over the years. The book also features photos from several European professional photographers and fans alike also, in an amazingly detailed collection which documents the history of this legendary New Jersey underground band.

Rage Days: The Illustrated History of Heathens Rage will be a one-time only limited edition printing of 500 copies.

The book and CD will both be released on May 31, 2019. Pre orders are live now and there is a limited amount of a special combined package that will receive a limited edition Rage button!

New Limited Edition items & new music releasing 4-13-19

After a very successful pre-order campaign for brand new limited edition items from Holy Soldier and Love Life Roxx is set to officially release out to the world four long out of print reissues as well as brand new music from three different artists. All releases will be released everywhere on Saturday April 13, 2019 which is official Record Store Day this year!

Up first we have limited edition vinyl and CD reissues from classic CCM artist Holy Soldier with their debut release. The album has been wonderfully remastered and includes two bonus tracks. One a classic radio promo for the debut album and second the very last song ever recorded with original vocalist Steven Patrick entitled ‘In The End’. This is being released in a limited pressing of 500 vinyl copies. 150 on yellow vinyl and 350 on black vinyl, and the yellow vinyl has sold out. Also a limited edition CD package pressing of 500 pieces. Remastered and expanded including new artwork, a 12 page booklet with lyrics and tons of archival band photos. Remaster was done by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound while all artwork and layouts were done by Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal Graphics.

Next we have the long out of print classic hard rock release from another classic CCM hard rock band called Love Life who would eventually change their names and become Fear Not. This classic album has been remastered and repackaged beautifully for a limited edition vinyl and CD release. The vinyl package will be a 500 piece vinyl pressing limited to 150 on gold vinyl and 350 on black vinyl. The gold vinyl is nearly sold out, the remaining copies are only available at the roxx store. Also a beautiful CD pressing of 500 pieces with a 12 page booklet with lyrics and tons of previously unreleased archival band photos and memorabilia. Also we unearthed with the help of the band a previously unreleased reel containing 5 demo tunes never before released. This reel was baked and remastered and added exclusively to the CD for the very first time ever. Remaster was done by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound while all artwork and layouts were done by Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal Graphics.

Next of our four classic reissues we have a limited edition CD pressing from the one and only legends of Christian Metal Bloodgood with a very special edition of the classic album Detonation. This album was officially released by the band themselves but we partnered with them to help bring it back to life! This exclusive special edition is limited to 500 pieces and we only have half of the pressing, so this one is truly limited. This was remastered by original Bloodgood guitarist and producer David Zaffiro. It also includes an exclusive 12 page booklet with lyrics put together by Paul Bloodgood and featuring some exclusive concept art photos of the classic Detonation album cover.

Lastly for our new reissues we have one more very limited pressing of the classic album from Recon entitled ‘Behind Enemy Lines’. If you recall and follow Roxx releases you may be saying, didnt you just reissue this one? Well yes we did about 3 years ago we pressed 300 CD’s in celebration of the 25th anniversary of this classic album, they sold out very very quick and we are constantly asked for this one! So ask and you shall receive, this is the second and final pressing of ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ and it is the same remaster done by George Ochoa for the 25th anniversary including 4 killer bonus tracks. If you own the 25th anniversary release you may not need this pressing as it is nearly identical and the final pressing of this layout and design. If you are the be all end all collector you may want it though as you will notice some subtle differences on this final pressing also done by Scott Waters, removing the 25th anniversary logos, adding a new catalog and UPC to make it unique. This is the final CD pressing in this format and limited once again to only 300 copies.

On to the new stuff we are very excited and proud to be a part of the brand new album from Christian artist LoveWar. After a nearly 25 year hiatus we have an absolutely killer follow up and sophomore release that fits right in there after the classic debut of ‘Soak Your Brian’ early reviews have been raving the new release.

Lovewar: Lovewar

Lovewar burst on to the Christian music scene in 1990 when they released a demo that caught the eyes and ears of famed producers John and Dino Elefante. That would lead the band to their first record deal on Pakaderm Records and the release of the now legendary album ‘Soak Your Brain’.

‘Soak Your Brain’ would be widely received as one of the best Christian rock albums of all time. The album was even named one of the top Christian rock albums of all time by Heaven’s Metal Magazine that placed it number 47 out of 100.

But alas, like many of the bands from that era that should have been huge, the music industry changed spitting out a lot of those very talented bands much like Lovewar. Lovewar would never go on to record a sophomore effort and the album and the band went off in to obscurity never to be heard from again, until now!

The end of 2018 saw the band reform and launch a very successful Kickstarter campaign to release their second album, 25 years later! The band got right back at it featuring all 3 original members and they picked up literally right where they left off. There were 11 songs written back then and ready to go that never saw the light of day that the band dusted off, polished up and recorded for this special project.

Roxx Records is very excited to be bringing you the brand new sophomore self-titled album from Lovewar! These tracks sound amazing and show the growth and progression of what just might have been all those years ago. Now the world will have a chance to hear what just might have been all those years ago.

April 13th on Record Store Day the album will be released digitally worldwide along with a very special limited edition CD pressing. You will want to get your hands on this one, which will prove to be one of the best Christian rock releases of 2019.

Visit www.roxxproductions.com for special preorders and be one of the first to get in on this exciting new release.

True Strength: Sanguinary Vivification

TRUE STRENGTH is honored to announce that their third full-length studio album, Sanguinary Vivification, will be released on April 19th, 2019 (Good Friday) in both CD and digital format through ROXX RECORDS! Fans of bands like Sacred Warrior, HammerFall, Warlord, Iron Maiden, Bloodgood, Bride, Journey, Megadeth, Queensrÿche, Deep Purple, Kamelot, Sabaton, Thin Lizzy and Rhapsody of Fire will absolutely love TRUE STRENGTH’s new release!

Sanguinary Vivification track listing:

  1. “Immanuel”
  2. “Man Of Sorrows” 
  3. “Silent Before The Shearers”
  4. “His Blood Is On Us”
  5. “The Punishment That Brought Us Peace”
  6. “By His Wounds We Are Healed”
  7. “A Grave Among The Rich And The Wicked”
  8. “Arisen Is The Suffering Servant”
  9. “Worthy Is The Lamb”

The album features the renowned American power metal vocalist, George Tsalikis of ZANDELLE in addition to songwriter, rhythm guitarist and bass guitarist Ryan “The Archangel” Darnell, lead guitarist Josh Cirbo and drummer Ryan Mey.

In late 2017, True Strength went into the studio to record their third album, “Sanguinary Vivification”. As with “Steel Evangelist” they elected to work with Robert Sands on the recording of the album. The album was mastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Productions. Darnell recorded the rhythm guitar, bass, acoustic guitar and piano in three sessions. Josh Cirbo finished the lead guitar tracks after a year into the project and Ryan Mey completed the drum parts and both were sent to Sands to be added to the tracks. After being dissatisfied with his vocal performance on “Steel Evangelist”, Darnell took a more patient approach and decided to hire a long-term vocalist for True Strength. During a single year, he went through over six different vocalists, with scheduling issues being the main reason for them being unable to perform on the album. Finally, Darnell’s friend and former True Strength drummer Chris Clark was able to get him in touch with Zandelle’s vocalist, George Tsalikis who Darnell was a big fan of since the late-90’s, early-2000’s. Immediately, Darnell hired Tsalikis and he completed the vocals for Sanguinary Vivification in January 2019.

The album is the first theme album that True Strength has attempted. Each song seeks to show the parallel between the “Prophecy of the Suffering Servant” in the Book of Isaiah, and the life and the passion of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and how He and He alone fulfilled the prophecy written nearly 700 years before His birth. The lyrics for each song derive from actual scripture in the Books of Isaiah, the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as the Book of Revelation!

BONUS: All copies of the “Sanguinary Vivification” CD will come with a Limited Edition “True Strength Psalm 118:14 – Ryan “The Archangel” Darnell” Signature Custom Guitar Pick by Steve Clayton USA Guitar Picks!

*All digital sales of the “Sanguinary Vivification” album will be donated in the band’s name to the International Christian Concern (https://www.persecution.org/), a charity that assists persecuted Christians and their families around the world.

*True Strength and Roxx Records are not associated with the International Christian Concern or their partners. All donations are given to the ICC without solicitation, sponsorship or direct knowledge of the band (True Strength). All album proceeds are directly donated in the name of the band (True Strength) to the ICC without their knowledge.
