RIYL: OCTOBER 31, HELSTAR, REVEREND, EXCITER
The newly revamped Tridroid Records is pleased to announce that they will release the cassette version of Hold High the Flame by traditional metal band Final Sign, on October 28th 2016. The album was originally released in 2015 and contains 8 tracks of pure metal for true metal heads.
This is the first release from Tridroid since being revived by new owner Christine Kelly. Christine used to write for the highly regarded metal zine Worm Gear and is a lifetime metalhead looking to put out the highest quality tape releases.
Christine commented about the release "I am extremely proud to present the debut album from Final Sign to the fist-raising masses eager for the sound of metal that is just plain heavy. Thrash, power, traditional - whatever you call it, Final Sign delivers on every track."
The band further commented "We are thrilled to have Final Sign be part of the Tridroid Records family! Tridroid has a fantastic rep in the underground and we could not be happier for them to be handling our cassette release!"
About Final Sign:
The musical partnership between vocalist Shawn Pelata and guitarist Brian "Hellstorm" Williams dates back to 1999, when Brian contacted Shawn with the hope of recruiting him to sing for a new project he was putting together. That short-lived endeavor became K-OCTAVE—yielding a single, highly praised album, Outer Limits, issued via Germany's Hellion Records in 2001.
Williams then continued with his main band, underground metal giants OCTOBER 31; while Pelata released two albums with melodic rock outfit LINE OF FIRE, as well as working with metalcore cultists KILLWHITNEYDEAD. The two kept in touch, vowing to one day work together again when the time was right.
That time, it seems, is now. An unstoppable riff machine (he's not called "Hellstorm" for nothing), Brian soon found himself with new players, and eight new songs in need of the right voice. He knew just who to call: Shawn was brought on board and—alongside Kevin Haverlah (drums) and Howard Baker (bass)—FINAL SIGN was born.
