Criminal Re-Sign to Metal Blade

Metal Blade Re-Signs Chilean Thrashers CRIMINAL

 


We are very happy to welcome back CRIMINAL to the Metal Blade roster. CRIMINAL have released four albums in the past via Metal Blade before they moved on to different shores and are now preparing their return to the Blade with a major blast to drop in March of 2016!

Comments CRIMINAL main man Anton Reisenegger: “Re-signing to Metal Blade feels like coming home to me. I’ve had a very close relationship to the label from when they sent me vinyl promos for my fanzine in the eighties, to when they offered us to release our second album in the US and Europe in the nineties, to when I worked for them myself in the 00s. I’m very good friends with all of their staff, so I’m really happy they asked us to come back, and I am proud to say we are coming back with one of our best records to date!

More details on the upcoming new studio album will be revealed shortly, but Anton is nice enough to give us a sneak preview: “The new album sounds really pissed off and aggressive. Angry old men who don’t give a fuck any more. We have come to terms with the fact we’re not going to be the next Slayer, but we keep doing this because we love making music together and I think we have something important to say in a time when image on the one hand and technique on the other seem to be more important than the riff. To us, it’s all about the riff!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
