US traditional metal veterans NITRO join with Blood and Iron Records/ Metal Soldiers Records to issue the legendary “lost” never-released album “Volatile Activity” on VINYL.
2013 was a good year to be a NITRO fan and now the dawning of 2014 sees the Pennsylvania quartet offering an extremely rare full LP.
New and long-term NITRO followers worldwide can now add the fabled, “VOLATILE ACTIVITY” to their NITRO collections thanks to vinyl specialists Blood and Iron/Metal Soldiers Records. Listen to “VOLATILE ACTIVITY” here:
With amazingly strong staying power, NITRO formed in 1979, released their famous 10 inch EP “LETHAL” in 1982, quickly signed with legendary Belgian label Mausoleum Records, and released the full length LP “LETHAL + II” in 1983.
Hot on the heels of Skol Records July 2013 CD release of the NITRO anthology “LETHAL DOSE”, “VOLATILE ACTIVITY” comes from Blood and Iron/Metal Soldiers records as a eagerly awaited limited release in black vinyl and blue vinyl.
For more than 26 years, this complete and self-produced album has been tucked away deep in the NITRO vaults. Vinylphiles will be treated to 10 vintage tracks forged in 1987, as well as the new 2013 single “URANIUM” serving as the connective tissue to span the decades between classic and farm-fresh NITRO. “VOLATILE ACTIVITY” includes plenty of exciting extras such as detailed liner notes, lyrics, and never-before-seen NITRO photos from the 80’s of original members Dana Confer, John Hazel, Brad Gensimore, and Tim Wilson.
“Volatile Activity” is also scheduled for release in 2014 on CD via Divebomb Records. Stay tuned for updates!
