Artillery return to studio this summer to record new album

Visit https://www.facebook.com/ARTILLERY.DK for a full listing of dates.

Guitarist Michael Stützer commented: “Artillery are proud to return for our first headlining tour in the USA and can’t wait to go to China for the first time! We are looking forward to playing songs from our latest album, ‘Legions’, together with old classic songs like ‘Terror Squad’ and ‘Khomaniac!’ Join The Legions!

Artillery

Artillery was forged in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Successfully fusing abrasive brutality, precision and strong melodies, with the bracing guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights, Artillery stands among Europe’s oldest and most important exponents of thrash metal.

On 2nd AugustArtillery will return to Medley Studios with producer Søren Andersen to begin recording the follow-up to 2013’s critically-lauded “Legions“. Some working song titles include “Cosmic Brain“, “Deity Machine” and “Sin Of Innocence“. The as-yet-untitled long player will see release via Metal Blade Records in late 2015. Further info to be announced soon. In the meantime, check out music and videos from “Legions” now at metalblade.com/artillery.

ARTILLERY are doing what they were surely born to do, namely hurling impressively intricate, ridiculously tight thrash anthems from every direction, they are still unstoppable.” — Terrorizer

…one of the best thrash metal albums this year…” — Iron Fist

The songwriting talent on display is formidable, and all the instruments turn potentially routine passages into extra appendages that work always in the band’s favor.” — MetalSucks.net

…this new album proves that they’re still fighting on, with no end to the war for thrash metal in sight.” — NewNoiseMagazine.com

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!
