DIVEBOMB NEW RELEASES (October 2009)

 

Well, it's taken us a little bit of time to organize our newest batch of reissues, but we are pretty sure you are going to be as excited as we are for their release! They will hit store shelves on October 15th. Quantities are limited so act fast. We are accepting pre-orders now and expect all orders to begin shipping around September 14th. Package deals (SHIRT+CD) are also available for pre-ordering.

 

We feel this new batch of releases truly encompasses the diversity of everything we are trying to create with our reissue division, Divebomb Records.

SARGANT FURY - The Anthology (3 CD BOX)

 

l_ac3edabcd1f541d7a48ff1833887b562.jpg

 

SARGANT FURY were a (mostly) German hard rock outfit releasing three incredible albums during 1991-1995. Delivering rock solid songs and working with top producers like Tommy Newton (Helloween, Elegy, Victory), Charlie Bauerfeind (Blind Guardian, Angra, Gamma Ray) and Sascha Paeth (Rhapsody, Kamelot, Edguy) it's a wonder how they never took over the world! Alas, as we all know by now some things are just never meant to happen.

 

However it didn't stop there for some SARGANT FURY members, their vocalist, Andrew "Mac" McDermott, did eventually go on to front the UK's premiere progressive metal act, THRESHOLD during their most eventful years. Bassist, Bauke de Groot, currently plays in HATE SQUAD and started his own record label in Germany and besides releasing amazing metal and hardcore from European bands he even licensed Tribunal Records' own, KILLWHITNEYDEAD for release overseas. Small world, eh? We like to think so! So we being the big SARGANT FURY fans that we are decided it was time to dust off these classics and release them together in one amazing box set! ALL TRACKS were digitally remastered by Jamie King @ The Basement Studios during July 2009.

DOMINANCE - Resurrected

 

l_51c782522497466ab1041086b016c928.jpg

 

This forward thinking Philadelphia area thrash band was formed from the ashes of cult heroes Anvil Bitch. Their two classic demos (Dominance - 1988 and Look Where We Worship - 1990) have been compiled and remastered for this new collection.

 

Resurrected is the first time this material has been released on CD. The enhanced content contains a full live set from 1989 and slide show of club flyers from the era. Also included - brand new interview with the band and full lyrics.

 

"Even with Dominance’s late arrival to the thrash metal explosion, their music was adventurous and lyrical subject matter absolutely captivating. However, what truly set them apart from the countless bands hacking it out was the addition of samples to their music. It was extraordinarily innovative and I can still remember getting chills the first time I heard General Ursus’ voice declaring “The only good human is a dead human” (from Planet Of The Apes) in the opening few seconds of “Resurrected.” It was eerie, yet uplifting in a sense. When their Look Where We Worship demo was released, the thrash scene may have been on its way out, but Dominance were defiantly paving a new path and adding even more creative depth to their already impressive arsenal of songs. Though they weren’t necessarily reinventing the wheel their bold approach to thrash metal certainly changed my world, forever."

SOLITUDE - Poisoned Population (2 CD SET)

 

l_eb183e0e15654d7ca6fea178f9aef5a8.jpg

 

Delaware thrash/speed metal band, SOLITUDE, was formed in 1983. Despite releasing three critically acclaimed demos true “break out success” always seemed to slip through their fingers. While influenced by Metallica and Testament they were also equally drawn to works by Rush, Mahavishnu Orchestra and even Eric Johnson.

 

In 1987, they released their first demo, Focus Of Terror, which received an enthusiastic response from the scene thus resulting in the track “The End” appearing on Thrash Attack III. Sickness, released a year later, found the band quickly gaining ground with great reviews in fanzines worldwide most notably, Kerrang! As if all the positive press and opening for bands such as DEATH, DARK ANGEL and SACRED REICH, wasn’t enough to warrant the scene’s attention “Typhoid Mary” was then chosen to appear on Metal Blade Records’ prestigious Metal Massacre series.

 

Fall Of Creation brought greater exposure in publications like Metal Maniacs, Thrash ‘Em All and Metal Forces and they signed with Red Light Records in 1993 and recorded From Within in 1994. Sadly enough, right before the album’s release the label went belly up and it never saw the light of day in the US. After a crushing blow like that and 10 years as a band SOLITUDE decided to quietly bow out of the metal world.

 

Poisoned Population: The Complete Collection (1987-1994) is a two disc remastered collection of all 26 tracks. It features all new artwork, extensive liner notes, full lyrics, enhanced live concert videos and much more.

I was excited until I figured out that it wasn't the band I thought it was. Any chance Sargant Fury is as good as Sgt Roxx?

Sgt Roxx are pretty good but Sargant Fury's 'Still want more' is honestly about ten times better than anything Sgt Roxx ever recorded. :)

Onward is from either Wyoming or Montana not sure which one.

Their recordings were done in Sheridan Wyoming which is really close to where I'm at.

Thanks Jez, good to know. I'm not a big fan of pre-ordering so although I will be getting this, I'll hold off until they start shipping.

who would you compare their sound too?

Victory, plain and simple. If you love Victory you'll love Sargant Fury.

What do Victory sound like? Any comparisons?

You suck. :lol:

 

Victory just sound like awesome. No other way to describe it. Big riffs, huge backing vocals, great song-writing, consistent as hell. If you're a fan of hard rock I don't really think it's possible to not love Victory.

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
