“The Dagger” is available as a fairly-priced CD Jewelcase (incl. the bonus track “Mainline Riders”, a cover version of NWOBHM legend QUARTZ) as well as a cool Gatefold LP with printed inner sleeve and 180gr vinyl and as Digital Album. The LP is available as black vinyl, limited orange vinyl (100x copies via High Roller Records) and limited red vinyl (worldwide limited to 300x copies). A silver vinyl version – worldwide limited to only 100x copies – is exclusively offered at CM Distro. Click the above link and nail down one of these rare pieces from CMR.
A digital copy of the album can be purchased at iTunes, itunes.apple.com/de, or at your preferred download/streaming store.
THE DAGGER are celebrating the release of the album on July 3rd at Bar Brooklyn in Stockholm, Sweden. The entry is free. You will be able to buy t-shirts, albums, patches, singles and see the band perform live.
Excellent reviews in the most important European rock magazines (i.e. “album of the month” in Sweden Rock) as well as the two already released album tracks “Ahead Of You All” and “Skygazer” tolerate no dissent: THE DAGGER celebrate pure heavy metal rock like no other!
