ARTILLERY To Release 'Legions' In November

Danish thrash metal veterans ARTILLERY will release their new album, "Legions", in Europe on November 22 via Metal Blade Records. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Chill My Bones", "God Feather", "Legions", "Wardrum Heartbeat", "Global Flatline" and "Anno Requiem". The digipack version of the album will include two bonus tracks: re-recorded versions of songs that originally appeared on ARTILLERY's 1985 debut, "Fear Of Tomorrow".

In a recent interview with StageReport.ro, ARTILLERY guitarist Michael Stützer stated about the upcoming CD: "I personally think it's the best production we ever had on a ARTILLERY album. It's very raw and heavy."

He continued: "Our new drummer, Josua [Madsen] and new vocalist, Michael [Bastholm Dahl], really deliver the goods on this album, Josua is an amazing drummer and real nice guy and Michael is the singer in ARTILLERY who is the closest ever to [original ARTLLERY vocalist] Flemming Ronsdorf beside putting a lot of new elements in the band because of his vocal range. He is also writing some great lyrics. So this band is a very complete unit."

Regarding what qualities they were looking for in a singer following last year's departure of Søren Adamsen, Michael said: "You will never hear ARTILLERY with a growler or a pop singer, but sung vocals with melody and rawness at the same time. Actually, we headhunted Michael from a cover band who played MERCYFUL FATE / KING DIAMOND covers, so we knew he could sing the old ARTILLERY songs very good."

ARTILLERY 2013 is:

Michael Bastholm Dahl - Vocals
Michael Stützer - Guitar
Morten Stützer - Guitar
Peter Thorslund - Bass
Josua Madsen - Drums
