    Along with their new album, Pure Steel are also set on re-releasing their Classic 1980 "Set the Stage Alight (35th Anniversary Edition)". The album which stood dormant for many years will now be made available as special vinyl release presenting it to metal fans as it was meant to be!

    Finally Pure Steel will be re-releasing the critically acclaimed "Rising From The Ashes" also as a special vinyl release. This was originally released in 2014 on CD & Digital Download only.

    WEAPON UK „Rising From The Ashes" - Cover, Tracklist, Release Date: 27th April 2018

    The release date of the of the album „Rising From The Ashes“ by the NWoBHM Band WEAPON UK on CD is April 27th, 2018. The pre-order phase will start on April 13th, 2018 in our webshop.

    Beside the compilation “Set The Stage Alight” Pure Steel will also release the bands 'critically accalimed' first full album “Rising From The Ashes” released in 2014.

    Until now the record only has been available as a self-release on CD by the band. Here, the London quartet featuring original members Jeff Summers (guitar) and Danny Hynes (vocals) also deliver the finest “British Steel” with a strong production. Although they deliver the songs with a modern sound, the songs are still full of classical Heavy Metal, with a slight Rock’n’Roll edge! Included on the album is a re-recording of a 1980's demo “Killer Instinct” Written by vocalist Danny Hynes. This track features the original 1980's line up of Hynes/Summers/Downes/Bisland.

    A really enjoyable, modern piece for all lovers of unknown NWoBHM masters.

    The current line-up of Weapon UK Danny Hynes - vocals, Jeff Summers - guitar, vocals, Tony Forsythe - bass, vocals, Darren Lee - drums have recorded a version of the classic Thin Lizzy song ‘The Rocker’ which is included on the album as ‘Special Bonus Track’.
