Swedish metal legends Gehennah’s debut album Hardrocker, is finally set to see a proper reissue for the first time in over twenty years! Tremendous effort has been put into this project, from digging up the original artwork and loads of old band photos to excavating the master tapes. The Swedish underground label Critical Mass Recordings has worked closely with the band and Primitive Art Records, who released the album first back in 1995, to ensure that this is the best possible reissue of this classic album. The date for the re-release has been set for March 9th 2018.
Vinyl LP in 140 grams in several colours: black (unlimited), beer, blood red and frosted clear (100 copies respectively). The vinyl will be housed in an extra thick, 425 gram jacket. The original master tape was used. There has been no remix or remastering undertaken. The release is accompanied by a four page full sized colour insert with all lyrics and loads of photos and comes in a black poly-lined inner sleeve.
The album is released in four-panel Digipak format, with a twelvepage booklet with all lyrics and loads of photos. Again, the original master tape was used – no remastering for CD. There will be two CD exclusive bonus tracks (The No Fucking Christmas! E.P. from 1995).
The t-shirt will feature the album artwork on the front in full colour. On the back print is the famous quote “Shortcut hair in sight, no words are needed to start the fight. All disco dance must end in broken bones…”
The shirts will be printed on Gildan Heavy Cotton shirts. Sizes Range: S to XXL. These will be exclusively available from the Critical Mass web store only!
The vinyl version of Hardrocker by Gehennah will also be available in exclusive coloured vinyl from: High Roller (Germany), Osmose (France) as well as from Hells Headbangers and Patac in the USA.
