OFFICIAL VINYL RE-ISSUES OF THE FIRST THREE STUDIO ALBUMS SET FOR FEBRUARY 12th 2016 RELEASE VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS

Check out this video to see the vinyl packaging in its full glory:

From the name of the band, to the title of Album One and its accompanying artwork, it was immediately clear that hadn’t arrived to make up the numbers… they’d come to win.

With ‘The Way Of The Fist’, the record in question, they delivered a self-funded set of songs so focussed, so committed, so determined to leave a mark (somewhere around the jugular) that a bond was swiftly forged with those for whom heavy music has everything to do with lifestyle and nothing to do with pastime…

Follow-up albums ‘War Is The Answer’ and ‘American Capitalist’ saw the US outfit aligning with producer Kevin Churko – the result being an even bigger sound that expertly plotted the path between emotion, melody and all-out attack, with frontman Ivan Moody showing exactly what he could do right across the board. As with ‘The Way Of The Fist’, both albums were released via Spinefarm Records ex-US, both saw traditional values laced with contemporary sounds and cutting-edge power, and both saw the band gaining real traction in Europe (with the Download festival in the UK consistently succumbing to the Death Punch main-stage assault) and making major inroads at US radio…

Today, backed by a global army of supporters (affectionately known as ‘Knuckleheads’), stand as one the most successful rock acts in the world; proof that if you have your heart set on a dream, the work ethic to beat down doors and the talent to consistently deliver nothing can stand in your way…

‘The Way Of The Fist’, ‘War Is The Answer’ and ‘American Capitalist’ are where the blueprint for success was laid and the gauntlet first cast, and now – almost a decade down the line in the case of the debut – it’s time to raise the flag with this special set of official vinyl Re-issues, scheduled for release on February 12th 2016.

Whilst holding true to the spirit of the original CD releases, each of the LPs has been visually reworked to get the most from the vinyl format, with extra elements added where possible.
