Unreleased MASTER Album Due In June; Audio Preview
April 20, 2013, a year ago
On December 31, 1984 Chicago based metal act MASTER signed with US metal label COMBAT (DEATH, POSSESSED) and soon afterwards started recording what should have been the band’s first full length album. Due to inseparable differences over the negotiations with Combat and mainly drummer Schmidt's insecurities, the contract was torn up. The 1985 album recordings were tape-traded in the underground scene, serving as a heavy influence for many (later) important bands from the death, black and thrash metal scene.
Due out on June 10th under the title Unknown Soldier, Vic Records will release the album featuring newly painted cover art by Richard Schouten (ACHROSTICHON, PENTAGRAM, ABOMINATION) and freshly designed booklet and liner notes from Paul Speckmann and rare mid '80’s Master pictures.
