EP | "The Last Journey"
2020 | METAL BLADE RECORDS
Just over twelve months ago, the Metal world had some terrible news, the passing of Morten Stützer, at the tender age of just fiftyseven, the loss of a legend, a fallen brother.
Remember: ARTILLERY were on a young METALLICA´s list of bands to listen to back in 1983 they also used ARTILLERY´s (and MERCYFUL FATE´s) rehearsal room when recording "Ride the Lightning".
To celebrate the life of their old bandmate ARTILLERY have called upon former members, ex-vocalists Flemming Rønsdorf and Søren Adamson, and together as well as the rest of the band recorded a brand new song 'The Last Journey', an epic and emotional track with lots of acoustic guitar, and heart wrenching melodies, before cranking up the heaviness with the chorus, the middle section also has some bone-crushing riffs, before a beautiful solo by brother Michael. A passionate and touching song.
The band have also recorded a cracking version of METALLICA´s "Trapped Under Ice" for the B-Side, one of Morten´s favourite tracks. All in all a fitting tribute to a true Metal icon.
Standard edition on Black vinyl limited to 300 numbered copies, the EP is housed in a< fold-coloured EP pocket cover.
