Attacker To Release New Album "Giants Of Canaan"

New Jersey's Attacker is working on forthcoming album "Giants of Canaan," which will feature artwork created by Jowita Kaminska. Jowita comments on the release:

"The Lords of Thunder are back after a short hiatus! New Jersey based legendary power/traditional heavy metal act Attacker strikes with their 5th (and 3rd after the reunion) album, taking no prisoners. All vital ingredients for a classic metal album are on board here: very classic guitar work with genuine mid-'80s feel, mighty galloping riffs, precise, powerhouse drumming supported by thunderous bass.

"And last but definitely not least: the bloody impressive vocal performance courtesy of the new singer, Bobby 'Leather Lungs' Lucas, known from the first two Seven Witches and Overlorde albums. His emotion-filled voice displays a great range, from soothing or chilling calmer singing to aggressive and powerful air-raid siren wails and screams, straight from the school of Dickinson and Rivera.

"Just try NOT to raise your fist or sing along to those songs... if you manage this, you are probably hearing-impaired! All this goodness is rounded up with a perfect recording, well-balanced mix and warm production that steers away from the awful modern digital sound plaguing even some traditional metal albums nowadays.

"This band can be best compared with wine - they only get better with age, but if you want musical references, apart from the two aforementioned names, look no further than Helstar, Liege Lord, Vicious Rumors, Destiny's End, Distant Thunder, Jag Panzer, and obviously Iron Maiden. Attacker is a force to be reckoned with - even though they celebrate their 30th anniversary, this band is still kicking ass like very few younger bands can!"
