Norwegian Thrashers DEAD TROOPER this week release a 12” vinyl version of their live album, No Tan En Vivo En Mexico, through Hellish Records. The title, which translated means “Not So Live in Mexico” refers to the band’s appearance at the Wild Metal Festival in Mexico which was rained off after only one and a half songs into the band's set, and is a “thank you” for the hospitality and welcome the band received when, together with local musicians and some prominent guests, they played an impromptu set at a local bikers bar where festival goers had gone to shelter from the rain.
Artwork for the eight-track album, which was released digitally in 2011, is by Danny Larsen. The album was recorded live in the studio during rehearsals and forms the entire set that the band would have played at the festival. No Tan En Vivo En Mexico” will hit the streets on October 13th and will be available direct from the band at this location.
No Tan En Vivo En Mexico tracklisting:
'Reaping Of Your Cries'
'Awakening The Awe'
'Death Casts A Shadow'
'Ten Ton Hammer' (MACHINE HEAD cover)
'Guns N’ Neuroses'
'Kiss Of The Kannibal'
Describing their music as “groovy, aggressive thrash metal”, Dead Trooper’s line up consists of frontman and guitarist Morten Müller (DEATH INJECTOR, METAL MILITIA, ex-GRIMFIST), Kim Andreassen (SLOGSTORM) on guitars and backing vocals, Andreas Stenvoll (BLODSPOR) on bass and Jon Eirik Bokn (ZEROZONIC, BREED, AUTUMN INSPIRATION) on drums. The band will launch the album on October 13th with a concert and signing session at the Da Vinci Rock Bar in Oslo, which also marks the opening of the bar itself as a music venue. Various festivities and events are also set to take place throughout the evening to celebrate the venue’s opening.
Work on Dead Trooper’s sophomore full-length album, which includes guest appearances by some of Norway’s extreme metal elite has now been completed and the band is looking for a label for its release. The band is also confirmed to support SAHG at Musikkflekken in Sandvika, Norway on November 24th.
