New song 'Kamikaze' from the EP out March 18 on Frontiers.

From Frontiers:

Hell in the Club have announced the release of a new EP, "Kamikaze - 10 Years in the Slums" that includes two new songs, two covers (Alice Cooper and W.A.S.P.), and a re-recorded track from their debut. See below for full tracklisting. The EP is a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the band's first album, "Let The Games Begin". The new EP will be released on March 18th on all digital platforms with physical versions to follow this June. Physical copies are available on the band's Bandcamp page. 

"We are relieved to finally be able to announce this EP. We thought it would have been nice to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of our first album "Let the Games Begin" by releasing something new. Not a new album, but something with which we could take stock of where we are now, ten years after we started our journey. So, together with Frontiers we planned this nice little EP that includes two brand new songs ("Kamikaze" and "10 Years in the Slums"), two cover songs (Alice Cooper and W.A.S.P.), and a reworked version of "In Your Eyes", a track we love so much and that was released as a bonus track on the Japanese version of our first album. As for the covers, we chose "He's Back" by Alice Cooper (already released as a special Halloween digital single treat) and "Chainsaw Charlie" by W.A.S.P., since we all agreed that "The Crimson Idol" is definitely one of our favorite albums ever. The plan was to release it exactly 10 years after the first album, so in 2021, but because of the prevalent situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the production process of vinyls underwent several disruptions, thus we were forced to postpone it again and again. After a long wait we can finally say that "Kamikaze (10 Years in the Slums)" will be released on March 18, 2022 on all digital platforms and on June 20, 2022 on very limited edition vinyl plus as an ultra limited bundle which will include the vinyl, the cassette (yeah, back to the 80’s!), and other goodies. Thanks for sticking with us for the last ten years!" - HITC 2022

Really annoys me with this shit. They are releasing on all formats except CD (yes even fucking cassette).

When I commented on social media about no CDs, all they had to say is "no CD, but cassettes and vinyl are collectable" .. so are CDs for fucksake. Who the fuck actually gives a shit about cassettes and why has this started cropping up all of a sudden? I just got the new Slash album in the CD boxset and the extra tracks come on a fucking audio cassette that I will never play.

If you are gonna release a new limited edition release like this EP, why cut out potential sales by excluding a much bigger number of people than those who buy cassettes?

Cool new song. 

lol @ cassettes. Really, they're back "in" too? That makes a tonne of sense. Gotta love the toss factor. 

I know I'll offend people but so be it, but what is up with people? I know it's a nostalgia thing more than anything and I guess that's kind of understandable, kind of, on some remote level of understanding, but really? 

I dunno, what do I know? Even in photography, I know a lot of people still like to shoot film. People just like making things difficult for reasons I understand not.

Just to fit in with the cool kids, I'm going to sell my car tomorrow and I'm going to put the money into a horse and a cart. Might even get two horses if funds permit. Surely that'll give me some hard street cred.

Well they are doing themselves out of sales so they aren't the brightest sparks.

Edison said "I will make electricity so cheap that only the rich will be able to afford candles". Ford did the same with cars and horses. These dickheads buying cassettes and vinyl are just cashed up hipsters and wealthy nostalgics. Why would I pay $70 for a new vinyl LP when I could get 3-4 brand new cds for less? Not only that, but as soon as you use the vinyl it starts to deteriorate. You are scraping a metal needle against grooves on a fragile surface. I dunno, maybe it gets you more pussy as a young bloke. That must be it.

Saw this morning that a band had released a cassette.
Pretty sure it was Maiden.
Didn't pay too much attention other than think it was weird to release a cassette

It's becoming common in the last couple of years. I bought the last Ozzy album and wanted a signed copy, but the only way to do it was buy it with the 3 different versions of the cassette. This was the first time I saw it. Since then I have seen Maiden, Slash, Avril Lavigne, Shameless, Hell In The Club and several other bands all offering cassettes as an option, but this is the first time I have seen a band willfully turn their back on their CD buying audience when offering them. There are several bands that do special vinyl only releases, but these are usually live albums so never worry me. But the only way its acceptable to release new material with no CD option in my opinion, is if you are just releasing digitally to save costs.

 

I upgraded most of my collection from cassette to CD over the years, and the main reason is CD's sound better and CD's don't get chewed up and snapped.

Same. I admit though, some of those rarer cassettes took me years to replace with a CD for a reasonable price. I wish I could go back in time and tell the teenage me that it would be better to buy the more expensive CD than be able to get 2 cassettes for the same price... (16 year old me would probably be more concerned about how middle-aged me looks so old and overweight).

What about 8 tracks?  Maybe they'll release it on those....

I get the nostalgia craze but it's silly to me that they'd release something on cassette and not CD.

Apparently not very concerned about selling physical copies of this.

2022: 44 year old me appears to 16 year old me in 1992 as a ghostly apparition as he is getting ready to go to school...

44: woooooooooooo buy CDs and not cassettes...

16: woah I get old and fat. Nice to know I didn't die like Bon Scott though.

44: actually don't buy CDs at all, invest in Microsoft shares, and you'll be rich...

16: and not get the new Guns N Roses albums, pfft, I get dumb as I get old. Gotta go, Meat Loaf...

44: Wait! Wooooooooooooooooo....

They're all good covers, but that's all.
No real discernable difference to the originals
Would have rather they picked a Sarah Brightman song and made it their own.
