Southern California heavy metal triple axe attack LEATHERWOLF had set a December 15 release date for its new album, "Unchained Live".
Engineered by Michael "Kramarica" Kramer, mixed by producer extraordinaire Roy Z (JUDAS PRIEST, BRUCE DICKINSON, SEPULTURA, HALFORD), and mastered by Tom Baker (QUEENSRŸCHE, JUDAS PRIEST, SEBASTIAN BACH), the disc contains several of the band's biggest classics culled from their highly acclaimed first three albums, including the MTV video singles "The Calling" and "Hideaway", as well as fan favorite "Dr. Wicked (Rx O.D.)" from the group's most recent studio release, "New World Asylum".
As an additional bonus, the band has re-cut its 1989 instrumental standout, "Black Knight", which originally appeared on the "Street Ready" record.
The "Unchained" packaging features striking artwork by noted conceptual designer Martin Deschaumbault ("Assasin's Creed") as well as Marc Sasso (DIO, MANOWAR, ROB ROCK).
"Unchained" track listing:
02. Kill And Kill Again
03. The Calling
04. Rise Or Fall
05. Dr. Wicked (Rx O.D.)
06. Wicked Ways
08. Street Ready
10. Black Knight (studio bonus)
"Unchained" is the first LEATHERWOLF album to feature the lead guitar duo of Rob Math and Greg Erba who are joined by original members, vocalist/guitarist Michael Olivieri and drummer Dean Roberts, and longtime bassist Patrick Guyton.
