The England-based record label METAL NATION announced two new releases to take place this year, between September and October! The first to see daylight will be the reissue of “The Opening Ritual”, from British power metallers CLOVEN HOOF! Recorded back in 1982, this is Cloven Hoof’s first ever release. Originally a 7″ four track EP, it has now been extended with the band’s first demo and a previously unreleased track, ‘Nightstalker’. All songs were remastered in 2014 by Metal Nation Records, including a 12 page booklet with lyrics, archive photos and extensive sleeve notes by the band.
Scheduled for a October 1st release is the new compilation from British NWOBHM unit BLITZKRIEG. “The Boys from Brazil Street Vol I” is a 16 track CD from 1980/81 Neat Records studio recordings and the band’s first demo. Features the original Blitzkrieg line-up from 1980!
