    Traitors Gate - Devil Takes the High Road - High Roller Reissue! (NWOBHM)

    Just seen on the High Roller Records website that the classic Traitors Gate - Devil Takes the High Road EP is to be reissued in Feb 2013:

    http://www.hrrecords.de/high_roller/sit ... php?id=334

    A quick google search of those B side song titles and it appears none of them have surfaced before on any demos in circulation - so it looks like there's some previously unheard Traitors Gate to look forward to with this release as well!

    YAAAHAA I'm still looking for the EP since so long....The last first press, according to popsike, has been sold for 157GPS ..so these are the BEST NEWS!!!
    I'm even afraid of (and sometimes catching myself trying to avoid) visiting the HHR Site, since the last year, because my HHR-Order list grows and grows, but the money... puh suckkks (viking)



    Apropos, there was a nice interview with Steffen from High Roller Records in one of the last Rock Hard Issues (german), if someone's interested...

    looks interesting indeed ... there was information about some demo tracks recorded by these guys ... but I can't say I expect them to be as good as the 1st track on the EP ...

    The demo titles sounds a bit to cheesy to be as good as "Devil Takes The High Road" but I hope they at
    least are in the same vein as "Love After Midnight" and recorded earlier or around the same period as the MLP.

    Just read the interview - interesting stuff indeed. No mention of any unreleased material though unfortunately - guess we'll have to wait for Matthias Mader's notes to appear on the HRR site to shed light on the B side tracks.

    There's a few more details on this release on the HRR site now and although it doesn't mention anything specifically about the extra tracks, it does mention live recordings existing of a pre-Traitors Gate project called Cyron from 1979, so perhaps this is where they are sourced from.

    You should get it =)

    here is the lyrics for "Shoot To Kill" (taken from the insert)

    Midnight surrounds them,
    With insults confund them,
    Damning us all to the ground,
    Gathering forces where jealousy reigns,
    Over and over the victims have fallen once more.

    Away in the distance the fires are bright,
    The shimmer of metal alive,
    Legions of darkness the haters of men,
    Charging and screaming,
    The night comes alive with their cries

    Shoot to kill, Shoot to kill,
    Thousands of hearts lie breaking,
    Shoot to kill, shoot to kill,
    cry for the ones forsaken.

    Like clashing of thunder,
    Collision beholds them,
    Corrosion of hearts let them fall,
    All systems go, god save our souls,
    Enter the one,
    The deceiver, the liar,
    A traitor who knows he will fall.

    Shoot to kill, shoot to kill
    Thousands of hearts lie breaking,
    Shoot to kill, shoot to kill,
    Cry for the ones forsaken.

    Thanks a bunch Strappado but a little part is missing:
    Gathering forces where jealousy reigns,
    ----------something missing here
    Over and over the victims have fallen once more.


    Legions of darkness the haters of men,
    ------- something missing here
    Charging and screaming,

    Ah yes, should've known the bonus tracks would be quality - High Roller never disappoints!

    I got this the other day as well but haven't actually played it yet (need to manually correct the speed on my cheapo Bush turntable but haven't got round to it yet). Thanks for posting the 'Prussian Blue' sample - sounds promising...!
