On 30 April, German veterans SDI will publish the remastered re-release of their 1989 album “Mistreated”. To mark the occasion, the video clip for “Violence” is now available, which not only contains the remastered soundtrack, but also rare original video footage from 1989. The video has also been optimised as best as possible and adapted to a current video resolution of FullHD.
The new edition of Mistreated comes with a new booklet, including several unpublished pictures, liner notes and a remastering, which has been given a contemporary polish by Role in „Die Tonmeisterei”.
On October 30th, the german veterans from SDI will re-release their classic “Sign Of The Wicked” and also transform it into the new millennium in terms of sound. All songs have been remastered by Role in the Tonmeisterei and have been given a contemporary sound. In addition, this release includes a new booklet with partly unreleased photos from 1987 and four bonus tracks, which were recorded between 1991 and 1993 and were planned for an album that was never released.
“Sign Of The Wicked” counts for every metalhead of the late 80s to the absolute cult album of the German speed metal wave that was feverishly approaching its peak at that time. With the title track “Sign Of The Wicked” and the unforgotten “Megamosh”, the band created two metal anthems, which in the following years could not be missed on any metal disco, and which even 30 years later still belong to the absolute evergreens of their genre. With “Alcohol” you can now get a first taste of the old hits in a new sound! More info soon!
