Attacker Signs With Metal On Metal Records, New LP "Giants Of Canaan" Detailed

Legendary U.S. metal act Attacker, featuring Overlorde/Morbid Sin vocalist Bobby "Leather Lungs" Lucas, have signed on with Metal On Metal Records. The band will issue its fifth LP "Giants of Canaan" on February 2, 2013.

The announcement reads as follows:

"Metal on Metal Records announced the signing of the US power/heavy metal veterans ATTACKER and the release of their new album 'Giants of Canaan.'

"Mike Sabatini, the band's drummer and founder, commented: 'I just wanted to say on behalf of the band and myself, that we are thrilled to be working with Metal On Metal Records! Jowita and Simone do a fantastic first class job with their releases (no cheap packaging!) and are truly passionate about what they do. That in itself is very important to us, we didn't want to just sign with anyone. We have had a great working relationship with Jowita for several years now with her doing the cover art for our last 2 releases, 'The Unknown' and 'Standing the Test of Time', both awesome artworks. We look forward to nothing but great things to come with our new partners... See you on the road!!!'

"Jowita Kaminska-Peruzzi, Metal on Metal Records CEO, added: 'The first time I met the band was at my first Keep It True festival visit in 2004. Taking photos was just the start - then I worked for them on the cover arts and saw them live four more times. I had been kept updated on the vocalists search situation and I was really happy to hear they eventually got the great Bobby 'Leather Lungs' Lucas - he is definitely a more than worthy successor to Bob Mitchell! This year marks the 30th anniversary of Attacker but in spite of their age they have more stamina than many young bands! It's a great honor for us to be working with this legendary act of which we've been big fans for many, many years, but there's also the friendship factor that makes things just perfect.'

"'Giants of Canaan,' the 5th album of ATTACKER, will be released by Metal on Metal Records on February 2nd, at the Metal Assault festival where the band will perform alongside other legendary traditional metal acts like MANILLA ROAD, BROCAS HELM and RAVEN, as well as their label-mates SKELATOR. Visitors of the festival will have the chance to purchase the CD directly from the label or the band there.
