Roxx Records is very excited to announce a very special reissue from one of the Christian hard rock scene’s most instrumental artists, HOLY SOLDIER.
Holy Soldier burst on to the scene in 1985 formed by bassist Andy Robbins and guitarist Jamie Cramer, at one time the band held the largest attendance records at Gazzarri’s, a notable nightclub in the Hollywood circuit. In 1990 the band would release their debut self-titled album which would draw quite a bit of attention and success to the band. But with this release we are celebrating the band’s second sophomore release Last Train which was released in 1992, 25 years ago this year!
For this special celebration we are giving the release a very special Roxx treatment, starting with a complete and new remaster done by Cliffy Huntington, who mastered the release for vinyl and CD. As well we have updated the artwork, however keeping the integrity to the original pressing, this new representation and layout and design was done by Scott Waters (Roxx Records / No Life Til Metal)
“‘The Last Train’ shows a band at the peak of their prowess. With grit and determination Holy Soldier shows that they were not followers in a narrow glam scene but were an exceptional hard rock act that worked hard to create a unique sound that deserved more recognition than they received. All the years slugging it out in the L.A. club scene were not lost on this talented five piece, producer David Zaffiro pulled out the best they had and helped to craft an under rated gem.” Keven Crothers (White Throne / Heaven’s Metal)
This limited edition pressing will come in a 500 piece vinyl pressing with 200 on red vinyl and 300 on black vinyl and this is the first time it has ever been pressed on vinyl! In addition we will also be releasing a very cool 500 piece limited edition remastered reissue on CD.
Stay tuned you won’t want to miss out on this very special 25th anniversary reissue before they are gone! Coming September 2017!
