Blitzkrieg celebrate 30th anniversary of 'A Time Of Changes'

Blitz-TOC-thumb


2015 sees the 35th anniversary of the English classic rock band , Blitzkrieg who came into existence in 1980.  Although their debut single (on Neat records) was released in 1981  , 'Buried Alive b/s Blitzkrieg'  it was not till 1985 that the band recorded their debut album as vocalist Brian Ross was involved with his other band , Satan recording and touring their debut opus  ' Court In The Act ' .


30 years on because of catalogue sale and resale 'A Time Of Changes ' is lost in the vaults of corporate hell and may never see the light of day again. That said the current line up of Blitzkrieg wanted this album available to fans so they have completely rerecorded the album and added two bonus tracks . 'Too Wild To Tame' which should have made the LP back in 1980 but for time restrictions of vinyl then would not fit !  (It was originally covered by another Neat records stablemate , Avenger in the 1980's)


The second bonus track , Jealous Love ' , has never been released before though written at the time . 


All the classic tracks are here too on this album including many still played live today which included the Metallica covered 'Blitzkrieg' track .


 It also features guess twin guitar appearances on 'Pull The Trigger' by Satan's Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsay.


Great new artwork has been commissioned for the new version too by South American artist Ivan Chacon fronting a new 12 page booklet full of sleeve notes by  Brian Ross , lyrics and new photos from the past and present line up..


The album will be release in Europe by the band's long time label Metal Nation Records . It will also be out in Japan by Spiritual Beast and on various labels in South America to coincide with the band's 15 date four country tour there in November 2015.  There will also be a vinyl version of the album on High Roller Records by German  label , High Roller Records .


The band continue their 2015 'Time Of Changes ' 30th Anniversary tour having already headlined festivals in he UK ( Brofest / Hard Rock Hell ) , Slovenia ( Metal Days) and  Germany festival Headbangers Open Air. 


The South American dates will be the last for this year starting in Ecuador and continuing through Columbia , Peru , Chile , Argentina and Brazil .( Full info  available from the band's site www.blitzkriegmusic.co.uk or their facebook page. A European tour is being arranged for 2016.  dates out soon .
