Artillery to release ‘The Face of Fear’, watch the title track video here!

Artillery will release their new album on November 16th through Metal Blade. ‘The Face Of Fear’ is the band’s 9th studio album and the third with the current line-up. ‘The Face Of Fear’ was recorded with long-time producer Søren Andersen at Medley Studios.

Since the last album ‘Penalty By Perception’, which won the band four Danish Metal Awards 2016 (Best album, best band, best production and Honorary prize), ARTILLERY has toured around the World, including Europe, South America and parts of Asia. In the rest of 2018 there will be time for Copenhell’s Metal Cruise and a Danish tour, with a release party on High Voltage. 2019 will include tours in Europe, South America and USA.

Artillery on the video: “Most of the scenes for the video were shot at Amager strand park right outside of Copenhagen. And the live scenes go back to when the band visited Japan and played at the Thrash Dominations together with Exodus, Voivod and Sanctuary. The video was shot by the bands good friend Terkel Christensen who also did the video ‘When The Magic is Gone’ from the latest album ‘Penalty By Perception’. The song is about dealing the end of man by himself. We create our own phobia about the destruction of the World, but remain disrespectful to the globe.”

The lyrics are ARTILLERY as you know them, with subjects concerning the destruction of mankind, double standards, abuse and the looming worst-case scenario. It’s Søren’s fifth time at the helm and once again he manages to deliver a monster production. Sören Andersen on ‘The Face Of Fear’: “Pure and raw! Some of the material of this album was originally written in the early 80’s and that inspired us to go old school this time. Not too many layers, just classic Artillery thrash metal… And Bastholm is better than ever on this one. This is a no-filler album, created together with the band. I’m really proud of the final result and I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I do!”
