ACID REIGN Back Catalog To Be Remastered, Reissued
August 6, 2010, 8 years ago
British thrash legends ACID REIGN’s back catalog is to be remastered and reissued via Lost and Found Records.
Formed in 1985, Acid Reign recorded the Moshkinstein demo in 1987, and was soon signed to the British label Under One Flag in 1988 to record the Moshkinstein EP.
After gaining support slots with such acts as FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, DEATH ANGEL, NUCLEAR ASSAULT and EXODUS, Acid Reign quickly made a buzz in the metal scene throughout Europe.
The bands first full-length album, titled The Fear, was released in 1989, and their final album, Obnoxious, in 1990. After the bands break-up, a collection of demos and live tracks were released under the title, The Worst Of Acid Reign.
Legendary producer Bill Metoyer, who has worked with such bands as SLAYER, DRI, SACRED REICH and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, will remaster all three albums, Moshkinstein, The Fear and Obnoxious.
Included in the reissues will be expanded booklets featuring archive photos, new sleeve notes on the making of each album and bonus material including the original Moshkinsten demo (remastered from the original master tapes), 'Hangin’ On The Telephone' single, and Humanoia EP.
Reissues are scheduled for a late 2010 release. Further updates to follow.
