Steel Assassin announces the upcoming release of their newest recording endeavour
“In Hellfire Forged” The band announces this fall release as follows: “We have the good fortune to once again work with producer Rich Spillberg (Wargasm) in an effort to re-create some of our classic tunes originally written and recorded in the first incarnation of the band back in the 1980’s. We felt that the songs were worthy of re-visiting with the influence of lead vocalist John Falzone, whose fierce metallic vocal style would augment and “re-invent” the songs in a way that would sharpen their metal edges with brazen force. Also worth noting is the fact that it has been 25 years since we recorded the demos that ended up being “From the Vaults”, so this is a 25th anniversary of the original recordings. Rich Spillberg also a strong creative voice and associate of the band, brings a passion and understanding of heavy metal, and more importantly SA’s material that is unsurpassed.” Added features of the recording is a new version of “Burn Witch Burn”, which is a song Phil wrote in ‘84 that we had played out maybe once or twice, but never got to record. Phil eventually recorded the song for his MADD HUNTER S/T CD he released in ‘97. Also featured on this record is a preview of the next Steel Assassin release “Metal of Honor”, a WWII concept record with the song “Breakout at St. Lo”. This 2010 release will be a fitting tribute to key episodes of the greatest war ever fought, with all new original material from Steel Assassin. Recorded at Reservoir Studios in Foxboro, MA, the band has been simultaneously writing and rehearsing for the next chapter of the SA story. The band adds: “Both our existing fan base familiar with the older material, and newer fans baptized by War of the Eight Saints will find In Hellfire Forged most metallically gratifying.” “In Hellfire Forged” will be released by the band itself on 10/15/09.
