ATTACKER "Armor of the Gods" EP details.

Our second September release is not a typical one for us as it's an EP. While already writing songs for their 7th full-length, the US metal veterans ATTACKER decided to first offer their fans an EP featuring 4 brand new studio and 2 live tracks, titled "Armor of the Gods" and clocking in at 35 minutes. The live tracks are from their gig at the Up the Hammers festival in Athens in 2017 and show perfectly that ATTACKER are a force to be reckoned with live as well. The studio ones are their typical US power/heavy metal sonic attacks with masterful guitar work, pounding drums, pummeling bass and air raid siren style vocals of the one and only Bobby "Leather Lungs" Lucas. The legendary producer and engineer Alex Perialas (Metallica, Overkill, Testament, Anthrax, M.O.D., S.O.D., Flotsam & Jetsam, Nuclear Assault, Exciter...) helped to make sure the songs sound top notch.

On September 15th, the band will visit Europe again to play for the first time in France at Pyrenean Warriors Open Air where they'll share the stage with GRIM REAPER, MEDIEVAL STEEL and OZ, among others, and in October they will perform in California at the US most revered old school metal festival Frost and Fire, alongside other legends like CIRITH UNGOL, SATAN, EXUMER, PAGAN ALTAR and others.

We've uploaded a brand new song "Skinwalker" and a multi-camera filmed video clip with a live version of "Glen of the Ghost" performed at Up the Hammers fest last year to our YouTube channel. You can listen to them also in the Bandcamp player on the ATTACKER page here. The complete EP track listing is as follows:

1. Armor of the Gods
2. Frightmare
3. Skinwalker
4. Gallows Hill
5. World Destroyer (live)
6. Glen of the Ghost (live)
