    DECLASSIFIED INFORMATION:
    Hailing from the flourishing late 80's Texas metal scene OBSCENE JESTER were a hard working metal band who slugged it out all over the tri-state area always looking to expand their growing fanbase. In 1989 they released the Citadel's On Fire cassette to much local acclaim and not wanting to lose any momentum began work on a follow up full length album. However, while in the process of recording that full length album something within the OBSCENE JESTER camp went awry and sadly enough it was never properly finished.

    This Bootcamp Series reissue collects the original Citadel's On Fire cassette release as well as 11 bonus tracks taken from the only known copy of mix references for their unfinished album. All audio was transferred from band supplied sources and remastered by Jamie King. Cover art, by Steven Cobb, is a faithful recreation of the original Citadel's On Fire cassette release.

    Can't stop playing this out of the three new cd's, easily my favorite. Like most Divebomb releases, I never heard of this band previously and I'm blown away. The bonus tracks are great too, loving The Mourning After. Funny you don't really promote them as a thrash band, this release sounds thrashier than the Intrinsic album (to my ears at least). Kudos on this release!

    By the way, seeing you list Oliver Magnum as comrades I looked them up and holy hell are these guys great. Please tell me you're gonna release something by them? They seem tailor made for Divebomb with all the killer demo recordings they have, which I think I liked more than the album. Great band, thanks for the tip. I have way too much new music to digest this week :headbang:
