The release date of the TRAUMA album "Rapture And Wrath" on vinyl is April 24th, 2015. The limited vinyl edition consists 200 pieces (black) and printed insert. The preorder phase will start on April 10th, 2015 in our webshop.
The American Power Metal-band TRAUMA should be known to quite a few
Heavy Metal-enthusiasts out there through their contribution to the
“Metal Massacre”-sampler and the release of their 1984 debut album
“Scratch And Scream”. By the way, the late, great Cliff Burton played
bass on their first demo recording... Now, after three decades, the band
from California have decided to give it another go! TRAUMA has returned
to deliver more face-melting Heavy Metal unto the hungry masses! Ladies
and gentlemen, we from Pure Steel are proud to present you “Rapture And
Wrath”, their first album in thirty years!
After the CD release in February follows the album "Rapture And Wrath"
in a limited edition of 200 black copies with printed insert on vinyl.
It’s all there: The powerful and charismatic high-pitched vocals of
Donny Hillier, which can be described as a cross between Geoff Tate and
Bruce Dickinson, the hard rockin’ guitars and many exciting melodic
passages. This album has everything you need, satisfaction guaranteed!
On „Rapture And Wrath“, groove, anthemic melodies and catchy hooklines
go hand in hand. Combine that with a clean, crisp production and you got
yourself a hell of a good time.
Welcome back, gents! „Rapture And Wrath“ has lived up to our expectations! TRAUMA has returned!
