NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) legends BLITZKRIEG will release their eighth full-length studio album, "Back From Hell", on November 5. The band's first CD since 2007 will be made available via Metal Nation Records (previously Neat Records) after recently signing a three-album deal with ex-Neat Records boss and TYGERS OF PAN TANG founder/vocalist Jess Cox. It will be released in Japan the same month on Spiritual Beast Records and on double vinyl LP on German label High Roller Records.
BLITZKRIEG revisits popular themes like Jack The Ripper and the famous U.K. TV show "The Prisoner" on this new album and also continues its TV and film obsession with material written about the movie "V or Vengence", "Stargate" and "Sleepy Hollow". They also eventually got round to honoring METALLICA by covering "Seek And Destroy" as a belated tip of the cap towards the Americans who recorded the track "Blitzkrieg" from BLITZKRIEG's self-titled seven-inch single on three separate occasions over their career.http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/blitzkrieg-covers-metallica-on-new-album/
