NWOBHM Veterans To Release Double Album!

A Savage cut is imminent!

Classic New Wave Of British Heavy Metal bands are currently in very rude health (new material from Praying Mantis, Diamond Head, Saxon and Iron Maiden is on its way) and cult act Savage are also getting in on the act.

Savage will release their brand new studio album “7”, on October 9, 2015, via Minus 2 Zebra Records (distributed by Plastic Head) and this double disc release will include complete live album Live ‘N’ Lethal on disc 2.

Savage – once credited for influencing Metallica to play faster – may have vintage Classic Rock running through their veins, with influences including Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple, but their new material promises a contemporary and fresh sound. Their debut album, Loose ‘n Lethal (from 1983) was an instant classic and the biggest selling independent import into the USA in it’s day. The band have had a stop start career ever since but came back with a vengeance in 2012 with the epic Sons Of Malice. The band has been busy ever since – particularly within the live scene of UK and Europe – with a recent Italian tour earlier this summer building their reputation further.

While this new release affords their classic debut a fresh treatment in the form of a recently recorded live performance in their hometown, Savage have also been hard at work writing and recording a set of new classics on this double release! The album titled 7 features 12 blistering new tracks, with a scintillating mix of old and new. Early word has it that many of the tracks are lightning paced and hark back to the early days of the scene, whilst “Superspy” and “Empire Of Hate” recall the heft of modern Ozzy and the streamlined sound of modern Metallica!

7/Live ‘n’ Lethal is a welcome return from one of the leading lights of the NWOBHM!
