NWOBHM band Blitzkrieg, formed in Leicester in 1980 burst back onto the scene with a two track EP titled Reign Of Fire. Original lead vocalist Brian Ross still captains the ship and his eerie, operatic performance on the title track sets the tone for a five minute heavy metal masterpiece full of in your face riffing and flashes of fretboard mayhem flurries on the A side. It bodes well for an April 2018 full length studio album released by Mighty Music.
A limited edition of 500 7″vinyl copies are available from them with an exclusive B side track only available on the vinyl release titled ‘Judge Not’. A digital version of ‘Reign Of Fire’ can be bought digitally from Spotify, Apple, Deezer, Tidal and Youtube. The EP and a tshirt can be bought at www.targetshop.dk/blitzkrieg. An album launch will be held at Think Tank? in Newcastle Upon Tyne on April 28th 2018.
