Aska To Release Vinyl Edition Of "Fire Eater"

Aska's album "Fire Eater" is due out as a vinyl edition this coming January 31st, 2014. The limited vinyl gatefold edition consists 333 pieces (black/orange splatter). Pure Steel Records comments:

"Not very many U.S. metal fans might make a list of their favorite bands of the 80's without Aska from Texas. The quartet around front man George Call (ex-Omen) now plays for 23 years and knows how to fascinate the scene.

"Albums like 'Nine Tongues' and 'Avenger' (both re-released by Pure Steel) have reached cult status. Their latest studio album was released six years ago, so it’s definitely time for something new!

"So now we present 'Fire Eater:' powerful and with lots of drive and passion, as we know from their former albums. Melodic and straight heavy metal with a typical Aska sound, George’s distinctive, rough and high power-voice, perfectly placed high-pitched screams, and some classic Maiden-Twin-leads: everything that a metal fan might wish for can be found on this newest release. The anthem-like 'Valhalla,' the fast double-bass 'Son of a God,' 'Eye of the Serpent' (which was on Emerald’s 'Unleashed' album), or the powerful Judas Priest cover version 'The Ripper:' Aska always know how to convince their fans!"

The track listing is as follows:

Side A
1. Everyone Dies
2. Dead Again
3. Vahalla
4. Son Of A God
5. Angela

Side B
6. Harlot Of Eden
7. Red Cell
8. The Ripper
9. Year Of Jubilee
10. The Last Message
11. Eye Of The Serpent More...
