ATTACKER Interview - Aquarian Weekly, 2/13/19

"Forged in the fires of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, New Jersey’s Attacker blazes a path across the metal scene. With soaring vocals, laser-sharp riffs, and thunderous rhythms, Attacker delivers true metal with deadly precision, slaying crowds and taking no prisoners. With their albums Battle at Helms Deep, Giants of Canaan, Sins of the World, and several other releases, Attacker has honed its live show into a pure frontal assault. Wherever Attacker goes, it conquers. Recently, AQ spoke with drummer Mike Sabatini about the band’s roots and its influences . . . "




While already writing songs for their 7th full-length, the US metal veterans from New Jersey decided to first offer their fans an EP featuring 4 brand new studio and 2 live tracks. The live ones are from their amazing show at the Up the Hammers festival in Athens in 2017 and show perfectly that ATTACKER are a force to be reckoned with live as well. The studio tracks are their typical US power/heavy metal sonic attacks with masterful guitar work, pounding drums, pummeling bass and air raid siren style vocals of the one and only Bobby "Leather Lungs" Lucas. All vital ingredients for a classic metal release are on board here, as it's always the case with the Lords of Thunder. The legendary producer and engineer Alex Perialas helped to make sure the songs sound top notch. So grab this EP clocking in at 35 minutes while waiting for their next full-length attack! Do it especially if you claim to be a US Metal fanatic and if bands like HELSTAR, LIEGE LORD, DESTINY'S END, VICIOUS RUMORS, SEVEN WITCHES, OVERLORDE, JAG PANZER (and obviously IRON MAIDEN) make your heart pump faster!
