The new album of Maryland's REVELATION 'For The Sake Of No One' is in print and should be released in October 2009. Coming off their amazing comeback album, REVELATION are back again yet for another album. Just when you think they've hit their peak, think again. For The Sake Of No One is very much a continuation of the last album so if you enjoyed the last album as much as I did, you'll be eager to invite this new album into your collection as well. Very few bands that are 20 + years can keep up with their classic material and we're lucky enough to have REVELATION around, not only keep the quality of music on par with their classics, but in some eyes surpassing it.
Furthermore Shadow Kingdom Records will re-release two classic masterpieces from Hellhound Records: REVELATION's '...Yet So Far' and IRON MAN's debut album 'Black Night'.
REVELATION '...Yet So Far' CD
REVELATION's 3rd full length album has been out of print for quite some time now. This album features Dennis Cornelius and Jim Hunter along side the staple of REVELATION, Steve Branagan. This may be REVELATION's most accessible album to date. Longtime fans of the band know what to expect, but newer fans on the fence should certainly check this album out as it's a great album to start out with in their catalog. Unfortunately the band did not have any bonus tracks for this re-issue. All of the bonus material was released on the 'Frozen Masque' CD by The Miskatonic Foundation back in 2004. This album is fully re-mastered with a nice booklet with a band write up, lyrics, and tons of old band photos to cherish.
IRON MAN 'Black Night' LP/CD
Very few bands come close to sounding like the classic BLACK SABBATH, but I think IRON MAN along with WITCHFINDER GENERAL, PENTAGRAM, and PAGAN ALTAR are the closest from the beginning. IRON MAN is a very special band to the underground heavy metal scene which craves for those fans who seek dark/doomy sounds that SABBATH created and really there are not many bands that even dared to try to re-create SABBATH with their own twist, but I feel IRON MAN have done so without being a cut and paste rip off band. This first album marks a birth of one of the few bands like I mentioned above who dove in head first into that dark atmosphere. This album is all about the riffs and heaviness, which if SABBATH themselves would ever hear this, they probably would be impressed too. There wasn’t much salvaged from the early days of IRON MAN , so the photos are limited, but we were able to re-master the album to make it sound as heavy as possible.
