|NEW AFTER ALL CD/LP "MERCURY RISING" RELEASE DATES|
|After All are pleased to annouce that the new album "Mercury Rising" will be released on both CD and LP. Mausoleum Records, home of such bands as Swarm (Death Angel), Spirit Web, Warning SF, Ostrogoth and Crossfire, will release the CD version on January 13th. TPL Records from Sweden, who brought us the latest LP of NWOBHM legends Blitzkrieg, will release a limited edition of 500 vinyl copies of the album (white vinyl/gatefold sleeve). The release date of the LP version is set on February 10th.|
"Mercury Rising" contains eleven new After All tracks, an ultra-heavy version of the La Muerte classic "Black God White Devil" and two video clips (CD only). The new album was recorded by Harris Johns (Voivod, Helloween, Kreator) at the Spiderhouse Studio in Berlin, earlier this year. To top it off, the album comes with awesome sci-fi artwork by Kris Verwimp, best known for his Marduk, Absu and Skullview designs.
After the more experimental approach of the "Dead Loss" album, After All return in true form. Paying tribute to their 80s metal roots with tracks such as "Beneath The Flesh" and "The Shadow Wall", "Mercury Rising" is by far After All's heaviest outing to date.
|AFTER ALL SIGN WITH BOLD BROTHERS AGENCY|
|The Bold Brothers are now officially in charge of After All's management and bookings. Right now, the agency is setting up a Benelux tour for early 2003. More details here as soon as we have them...|
|And before we forget: best wishes for 2003 to all metal maniacs out there! Thanks to all who came out to see us rock at Hootanny 2003, alongside Red Zebra, Patrick Riguelle, Rhythm Deep and Split Window (New Year's Eve, Magdalenazaal, Brugge). A great start for a great year, no doubt about that!|
