TITAN FORCE To Release 'Force Of The Titan' Compilation Via SKOL RECORDS

Cult U.S. heavy metal act TITAN FORCE has inked a deal with Skol Records. The band's first release for the label will be "Force Of The Titan", a collection of 12 previously unreleased studio tracks recorded in the '80s: the complete demo from 1985 — recorded when the band was using the TITAN name, featuring John Flores on vocals — and eight classic tracks from the first two TITAN FORCE albums in alternate and previously unreleased demo versions, with Harry Conklin (JAG PANZER, SATAN'S HOST) on vocals. "All tracks were transfered from original tapes and have jaw-dropping sound quality," says Skol Records CEO, producer Bart Gabriel. "It's incredibly huge honor to have them on Skol Records. They are one of the amazing heavy metal bands that ever walked the earth.

"This compilation is just the beginning. We have few jokers hidden in our sleeve," he adds.

TITAN FORCE will perform at the — already sold-out — Keep It True festival on April 24-25, 2015 in Lauda-Konigshofen, Germany. The event will be headlined by recently reformed original lineup of EXCITER and RIOT V. TITAN FORCE will also appear at the Up The Hammers festival on March 6 and 7, 2015 in Athens, Greece.

TITAN FORCE was formed as TITAN in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1983, by Mario Flores (guitar) his siblings John (bass, vocals) and Stefan (drums). The lineup was completed by Bill Richardson (guitar, keyboards). In 1987, the band recruited vocalist Harry Conklin (who at that time was involved with SATAN'S HOST) and went on to release two albums — "Titan Force" in 1988, and "Winner/Loser" in 1991 — which are considered classics of the progressive heavy/power metal genre. In 1993, TITAN FORCE co-headlined the Power Metal Gods tour of Europe with ANVIL.
