Executioner - In The Name Of Metal
Executioner were a thrash metal band from Boston, Massachusetts. "In The Name Of Metal" was originally released on New Renaissance Records on vinyl and cassette in 1986. The cassette would feature one extra track that wasn't on the vinyl called 'Final Destruction'. Like every New Renaissance Records release, this went out of print. Over the years, New Renaissance would re-issue some of their back catalog on limited number cd, but they never got around to Executioner. In a way I am glad because most of their re-issues sucked! They were often thrown together, mislabeled and usually recorded from a source other than the master, resulting in a shitty sound for todays expectations.
Fast forward to 2013 and here we have "In The Name Of Metal" re-released and remastered for the first time on cd on Old Metal Records. Leave it up to King Fowley to give this release justice and finally get it out to the masses! This thing is gigantic, featuring the full LP with the cassette bonus track 'Final Destruction', plus seven bonus tracks as listed below!
Hell and Back (demo)
Final Destruction (demo)
In the Name Of Metal (demo)
Victims Of Evil (from "Speed Metal Hell" compilation)
Walk All Over You (AC/DC cover) (from "The Storm after the Calm" album)
It doesn't get much better than this people!!! 2013 has been a great year for metal and it's great to finally have "In The Name Of Metal" on cd!!!
The cd is brand new and arrived from the distributer unsealed. All new unsealed cds are placed in a new case and a resealable cd bag for protection. Alot of distributers send without the case to keep the shipping cost down on large heavy boxes.
Any glare or bright colors in the photos is the plastic on the resealable cd bag or the original seal if the cd is new and sealed.
