Een mail doro B.M. zelf verzonden. Het beste nieuws deze zomer, of sedert dat Iced Earth zo goed als dood is...
the Call On The Attacker has been heard!
Nochthans is er alles behalve iets mis met die Vyndykator plaat
quote:

- It seems as though the impossible has happened as
Bob Mitchell has reunited with US Power Metal Legends
ATTACKER! The power quintet are currently in the
studio rehearsing material for their highly
anticipated follow-up to 1988's "The Second Coming".

The band will enter the recording studio on September
13th. The new Attacker album will be titled "SOUL
TAKER" and it will be released world-wide through IRON
GLORY RECORDS with a tentative release date set for
January 2004. In celebration of this reunion, the
Lords of Thunder will be performing a homecoming show
on Saturday December 13th in their hometown of
Hoboken, New Jersey at the historic MAXWELL's venue.

Former Metal Blade recording act OCTOBER 31 have been
chosen to be the special guests for what promises to
be a historic event.

This all important show will be recorded and filmed
for an upcoming live CD/DVD to be realeased sometime
in 2004!

The Vocal legend recently made the following
statement:
"I am only to thrilled and honored to be back with
ATTACKER! The fans have been great to me throughout my
career and they certainly deserve one more album from
us and believe me when I tell you, we will deliver. We
have really picked up where we left off both musically
and personally. It's as though we never broke up to
begin with. Our friendship is as strong as it ever
was. The material is in the classic style that our
fans have come to appreciated for all these years. We
promise that no one will be disappointed!

I must make it clear, however, Attacker will NOT be a
touring band, but we will, incidentally, make several
festival appearances throughout 2004 to help promote
our upcoming album. I felt, as did the others, that it
was time to properly put closure on the band and give
you, the fans, our new album. I will always be
grateful to my band. It is becasue of ATTACKER that I
am here today".

While on the subject of live shows and festivals, the
plan, as of this writing, is to have Attacker packaged
with Vyndykator (Mitchell's currrent Power Monsters)
for live US and European Festival appearances in 2004.

In summation, "SOUL TAKER" will be released world-wide
in January 2004. The new studio album will
subsequently be followed by a live CD/DVD. There are
currently no plans for a follow-up studio album.

Speculation dictates that this will be Bob Mitchell's
swan song from the world of Heavy Metal. But with
expected new releases from his current bands,
VYNDYKATOR and ALCHEMY X, from this writers
perspective, it doesn't appear as though Ol' Yeller
will be leaving us anytime soon.

Details will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.......
-Hans Perlseig, August 2003

COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Attacker heeft twee super cd's uitgebracht (ik prefereer overigens hun debuut) . Maar ik ben benieuwd of het nieuwe materiaal net zo goed is als het oude werk. Ik hoop het maar.

Heerlijk nieuws

Elven begost ATTACKER: RETURN PERFORMANCE A SMASH!! FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM WILL HAPPEN!!!
Hello Headbangers! Well it is now in the history books. Attacker’s return performance at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ on December 13th was a complete success!! The house was PACKED with rabid Metal Freaks who sang along to the old Classics and thrashed and banged with lethal fury to the bands newest material! Reports indicate that Metal luminaries were on hand to witness the historic return of the Lords Of Thunder! Members of SEVEN WITCHES, OVERLORDE, M.O.D./S.O.D., VYNDYKATOR, ALCHEMY-X and Label representatives from OUTLAW RECORDINGS and SENTINEL STEEL were in attendance. Former ATTACKER bassist Lou Ciarlo made a touching guest appearance. The band raged through a spectacular set, highlighting songs from the new release, SOUL TAKER, as well as an abundance of ATTACKER classics! For those that missed out on this amazing evening of Metal Mayhem, read for yourself what those in attendance had to say about the event:

JACK FROST- Seven Witches
"Hi! This is Jack Frost I just want to say I attended the show, it was, for me, an amazing night. I always loved Bob's voice and the killer song writing. It took me back to when metal was king. When I first saw them back in the day I was just hoping to someday do what thay where doing and now seeing them 15 years later, they havent missed a beat. The only thing we missed was them. Thanks from the heart" .

KING FOWLEY- October 31/Deceased
"ATTACKER TOOK THE STAGE AND RAVAGED IT LIKE A CHEAP WHORE IN A BACK ALLEY!!! THEY PLAYED A VERY VERY INSPIRED SET OF TRADITIONAL 80'S METAL AS WE KNOW THEY ALWAYS HAVE FROM DAY ONE! ALL 5 BAND MEMBERS WERE IN FINE FORM AND THE NEW BASSISTS FIT IN PERFECT! THE NEW MATERIAL IS FANTASTIC AND A SINCERE THROWBACK TO THE 80'S METAL TRAPPINGS WE ALL KNOW AND LOVE! 'SLEEPY HOLLOW' BEING THE BEST NEW TRACK FOR ME! THE CROWD LOVED IT ALL AND WE ALL HAD OVER 1 HOUR OF MIGHTY METAL BANGING! MY BAND OTOBER 31 HAD A BLAST OPENING UP THE FESTIVITIES AND WAS TREATED JUST GREAT BY THE BAND, CLUB, AND ALL THOSE IN ATTENDANCE! ALL AND ALL A GREAT NIGHT FOR METAL AND AN AWESOME MEMORY FOR ALL TIME! CHEERS"

STEVE RATCHEN- Vyndykator/Alchemy X
"Attacker was quite good, in both their delivery and stage presence, though having shared the stage with them back in the 1980's, that hardly surprised me. On the same note, having played many venues with Bob in both Vyndykator and Alchemy X, the man is just the living embodiement of Dean Martin/Tom Jones transposed into a metal arena. And understand that I don't make that point lightly. It would be very easy for that kind of persona to slip into caricature, but he manages to not only pull it off, but excel at it. I've said this in interviews many times before, but he is by far the best frontman/singer/entertainer I've ever played with, and his approach is completely professional, whether we're playing in front of 10 people or 10,000. It's always interesting to watch him from the audience rather than the stage as I'm used to. All in all, the guys in Attacker put on an outstanding show and i look forward to playing with them at the Classic Metalfest in Chicago this summer".

OMID- Outlaw Recordings
"Omid here, from Outlaw Recordings well, I was there- and I guess if I had to sum it up I would say that Attacker is back, and all I can say is watch out Europe! These guys kicked it out, they were totally on! Of course Bob Mitchell had the Udo-ish screams down, plus all the stage moves that Tom Jones wishes he could have come up with! I mean that as a compliment! He is truly an entertainer, and Attacker is a truly a Heavy Metal band!"
So there you have it kids! The show was a runaway success!
*********************************************
In a related story, ATTACKER have confirmed that they will begin the writing stages for the fourth Attacker album before hitting the Festival curcuit this Spring and Summer! Upon the bands return from the road, they will commence on working their next album. So it goes without saying that the seminal US Pioneers of True Metal are here to stay!
For what its worth, there are also some unconfirmed reports that ATTACKER may come to Europe! Seperate territorial US tour treks with SEVEN WITCHES and OCTOBER 31, respectively speaking, have also been in buzz bin as of late. Our next update should confirm all. Stay Tuned!....
MERRY METAL CHRISTMAS TOO ALL!!!
-Hans Perlseig, December 2003
ATTACKER: "SOUL TAKER" The New Album! IRON GLORY RECORDS! WORLD-WIDE on JANUARY 26TH!!

ik heb ook al eens ene link naar een nummer van hun aanstaande 4e cd gepost. Als dat een nummer representatief is voor de hele cd wordt het een klapper! ik vrees wel dat veel mensen moeite zullen hebben met de zang........

("Battle at helms deep" draai ik overgens nu nog steeds op een zeer regelmatige basis, wat een cd cd/plaat is dat toch zeg)

Even een oude thread omhoog halen.

ATTACKER!


Hun vorige releases (eigenlijk alle) zijn stuk voor stuk pareltjes.
US power metal van de bovenste plank.

Er is nu een nieuwe EP uit. Vanochtend in de bestelling gedaan en hopelijk snel in huize Bub
