Blitzkrieg’s seminal NWOBHM classic A Time Of Changes is about to celebrate its 30th Anniversary yet due to legal wrangles the original version is lost in the vaults of corporate hell and may never see the light of day again!
That said, the current line up of Blitzkrieg desperately wanted this compulsory addition to any NWOBHM fans collection available to fans once again, so they have completely re-recorded the album and added two bonus tracks in the process. Now featuring “Too Wild To Tame” – a track which should have made the original LP but had to be removed due to vinyl time restrictions – and “Jealous Love” – a track written at the time of the original recording but never released – this new version of A Time Of Changes promises to fill the void left by the relative obscurity of the original.
Featuring the Metallica covered “Blitzkrieg” and also guest twin guitar appearances on “Pull The Trigger” by Satan’s Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsay, A Time Of Changes: 30th Anniversary Edition will be released in Europe by the band’s long time label Metal Nation Records. It will also be released in Japan by Spiritual Beast and various labels in South America to coincide with the band’s 15 date, four country tour in November 2015. There will also be a vinyl version of the album released by German based label, High Roller Records.
With stunning new artwork by South American artist Ivan Chacon – fronting a new 12 page booklet brimming with sleeve notes by Brian Ross, including lyrics and new photos from the past and present line up – this reworking of a classic looks to remain faithful to the original while honouring the changes that have led the band to their current incarnation and recent resurgence.
A Time Of Changes will be released on 2nd November 2015, embrace the change!
