BULLDOZER Releasing Special Edition of “Unexpected Fate”
Bulldozer is, without a doubt, one of the most important and influential thrash metal bands to ever merge from the European underground, formed in 1980 by bassist Dario Carria and guitarist Andy Panigada, with influences coming from bands such as Venom, Bathory and Slayer. After having finalized the line-up with Alberto “AC Wild” Contini taking over bass and vocal duties and Don Andras playing drums, Bulldozer recorded the ‘Fallen Angel’ demo, which immediately caught the attention of the renowned dutch label Roadrunner Records, finalized with the release of their debut album ‘The Day Of Wrath’ and the follow-up ‘The Final Separation’, both gaining a “cult” status which never went by. In the following years another 2 studio albums, ‘IX’ (1987) and ‘Neurodeliri’ (1988), and a live album, ‘Alive… In Poland’ (1990) came out, but this last one would have been the last Bulldozer effort for many years to come…
Strengthened by the renewed legacy of original members AC Wild and Andy Panigada, Bulldozer released their long-waited come back album ‘Unexpected Fate’ in 2009, after signing a worldwide deal with Scarlet Records. The album was a huge success among all the real thrash metal purists around the globe: fast & furious as never before, with a lethal dosage of heavy riffs and disturbing vocals, plenty of attitude, an intriguing lyrical concept and special guest appearances by renowned musicians Jennifer Batten and Billy Sheehan.
May 26th, 2011 (Europe) and June 14th, 2011 (USA) will see Scarlet Records releasing a special edition of the album including 4 bonus Bulldozer classics (‘Minkions’, ‘Micro V.I.P., ‘Willfull Death’ and the ‘IX/Desert’ medley) recorded live at Rock Hard Festival 2010 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, where the band annihilated the audience with their notoriously electrifying performance. ‘Unexpected Fate Special Edition’ will be released in a captivating digipack CD format.
