First Two Onward Albums To See Vinyl Reissue As Tribute To Late Singer

Montana metal act Onward has signed a licensing deal with Pure Steel Records to remaster and release the band's first two albums "Evermoving" (2001) and "Reawaken" (2002) on vinyl late summer/early fall. The albums featured Crescent Sheild vocalist Michael Grant (Ex-Cypher Seer/Ex-New Eden), who passed away last May.

Onward mastermind Toby Knapp commented on the releases, intended to be a monument to the the fallen singer: "Over a year ago I approached Pure Steel Records about releasing Onward's demo 'The Neverending Sun' on vinyl. Pure Steel had a much better idea; releasing Onward's first two albums 'Evermoving' and 'Reawaken' in limited edition gatefold vinyl, remastered and with completely new artwork. After negotiations began Onward vocalist Michael Grant passed away making these plans take on a more serious level of importance. After a decade since disbanding these re-issues represent the eternal life of music, of Heavy Metal carefully crafted with integrity and the magic of collaboration between those who believe. Many fans who have since discovered Onward's music say 'what happened?where did they go? they were so under-rated.' Our collaboration with Pure Steel records on the re-release of what many consider 'landmark' Heavy Metal albums is proof positive of what Onward conveyed during our years together; 'Evermoving Onward!' onto vinyl sounding better than ever."
