Holy Soldier Last Train reissue announced

Post by Bill Roxx on Thu Jul 27, 2017 12:48 am

Roxx Records is very excited to announce a very special reissue from one of Christian rock’s most instrumental and influential artists of the late eighties and early nineties, Holy Soldier. 

Formed by bassist Andy Robbins and guitarist Jamie Cramer, Holy Soldier burst on to the scene in 1985 taking the Christian rock world by storm. The band played all over the US but very quickly built a large following in their home state of California. At one time the band held the largest attendance records at the famous Hollywood night club Gazzarri's. By 1990 the band would release their debut self-titled album which would draw even more attention and success to the band allowing them to continue to tour and record. By 1992 the band would release their highly anticipated sophomore effort titled ‘Last Train’ which would even further their success and broaden their market reach across the world. The band would play live relentlessly, touring all over, winning two Dove awards and building an amazing following all over the world. 

“ ‘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 of 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 year marks the 25th anniversary of that sophomore release ‘Last Train’ and with that we are going to celebrate and give this classic release a much needed reissue giving it that special Roxx treatment. The music on this reissue will be exactly as it originally appeared in 1992 track by track, but featuring a complete and new remaster done by J Powell at Steinhaus Remastering, and it sounds amazing! In addition this reissue will feature some slightly updated artwork, however keeping the integrity, look and feel of that classic original pressing. This brand new interpretation of the artwork as well as the full layout and design was done by Scott Waters (Roxx Records / No Life Til Metal).

This limited edition pressing will come in a 500 piece vinyl pressing with 150 on red vinyl and 350 on black vinyl marking the very first time this album has ever been pressed on vinyl! In addition we will also be releasing a very cool 500 piece limited edition remastered reissue on CD. Official street date for this reissue will be August 25, 2017 but this release will be making its official debut at this year’s SoCal Metal Fest 2 – A Tribute to Dale Huffman on Saturday August 12th.

Would love to preorder the red vinyl but the funds just aren't there at the moment. I may have to sit this one out.

If I hadn't remastered it already for my own listening enjoyment, I'd be all over this.  As it is, I will stick with my original copy and upgraded sound that I already have.
