"Land Of The Dead", the new video from JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR — the U.S. power metal act led by former VIRGIN STEELE guitarist Jack Starr — can be seen below. The song is the title track of the band's latest studio album, which was released on November 11, 2011 via Limb Music. The CD was produced by Bart Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER, SACRED STEEL, LONEWOLF), and features cover artwork by Ken Kelly (RAINBOW, KISS, MANOWAR).
"Land Of The Dead" was recorded by the same lineup that was responsible for 2009's "Defiance" album: Starr on guitar, Ned Meloni on bass, Kenny "Rhino" Earl (ex-MANOWAR) on drums, and Todd Hall on vocals. The CD also features guest appearances by David Shankle and Ross The Boss (both ex-MANOWAR) on lead guitar, and Marta Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER) on grand piano and keyboards.
As previously reported, JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR will play an exclusive show at the 2013 edition of the Keep It True festival in Germany. The group's setlist will include classic songs from the early JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR albums, songs taken from the band's new CD, "Land Of The Dead", and select cuts from Starr's previous bands VIRGIN STEELE, PHANTOM LORD and GUARDIANS OF THE FLAME. The entire show will be filmed for a special DVD release, which will be out in 2014 — the 30th anniversary of JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR. Also in the works are European live shows for 2013.
JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR album from 1986, "No Turning Back!", will be reissued on July 25 via Skol Records. This will be the first official CD re-release of this LP since 1998. The remastered reissue will include new artwork (painted by the famous Polish artist Tomasz Oracz) and will contain two bonus tracks and thick booklet with all lyrics and many previously unseen photos. The CD will be limited to only 1000 copies.
