Quartz Satan's Serenade
QUARTZ SatanÂ´s Serenade/Nantucket Sleighride LP, limited to 300 copies LP enthÃ¤lt zwei Inlays Quartz is not only one of the oldest active metal bands, but also belong to the founding fathers of the NWOBHM. Together with Samson and Marseilles they swept aside the hip punk movement of the late seventies, while being kind of vanguard to Iron Maiden or Saxon, even before the term â€žNew Wave Of British Heavy Metalâ€œ was coined a little later. In 1977, the debut album â€žQuartzâ€œ, strongly reminiscent of Black Sabbath and later marketed a second time as â€žDeletedâ€œ, was released on Jet Records (Ozzy Osbourne among others). In 1980 they switched to the next industry giant: MCA. In the same year, they released the LP â€žStand Up And Fightâ€œ. Both albums are popular classics today, but in between these releases there was an exciting period, resulting in two singles and a live LP. And of course Quartzâ€˜s signature song: â€žSatan Ìs Serenadeâ€œ! In between the impressive major deals, the small label Reddington Ìs Rare Records took care of the band. As the name gives it away, itâ€˜s actually a record shop, which is directly reminiscent of Metal Blade and Brian Slagel. You can notice the attention to detail: â€žSatan Ìs Serenadeâ€œ was released as a 12â€œ in red vinyl, while â€žNantucket Sleighrideâ€œ was a 7â€œ single, which was released in five versions (coloured vinyl and red or black cover). This positive madness was topped with a clear 7â€œ flexidisc that was distributed as promocopy. Incidentally, RRR were also responsible for Paralex and Mayday. Golden Core is extremely proud to present both legendary RRR singles now as a 12â€œ EP (playing time: 25:47) in a limited edition of 300 copies. The LP includes a printed inlay and a reprint of the â€žNantucket Sleighrideâ€œ single (on paper). Liner notes include a recent, exclusive interview with drummer Malcolm Cope! The original singles were overdubbed and audio-cleaned by Patrick Engel, then remastered by Neudi and adapted to the medium vinyl by Vadim Kulin (ZYX Studio). A unique collectorâ€˜s item!
