Sometimes it’s hard to be aware of the next big-thing in the moment it’s happening…
It can take months, years to achieve the success but not in the case of HIGH SPIRITS, where everything has happened so fast, that it’s very easy to predict a bright future for this Chicago-based band, who has already started its live-activity playing with the likes of Enforcer, Cauldron, Bible of The Devil.
Their first 2009 demo was enthusiastically acclaimed by European medias (9/10 on ROCK HARD GERMANY) as well as Americans (“This four track demo EP is pure 80’s metal. It sounds to me like the early output of Scotland’s Heavy Pettin’ fronted by a singer that sounds somewhat similar to Kevin Griffiths of the NWOBHM band Briar.”- hellbound.ca), immediately bringing to the attention of all traditional metal fans one of the most interesting bands paying tribute to the classic NWOBHM sound.
Released by our brother-label M.F.H. in an elegant, classic all-white packaging cover and, this digipack features both HIGH SPIRITS demos (“some of the catchiest nü-NWOBHM jams around” – DECIBEL MAGAZINE) that were released through in 2009.
“The spirit of of the 80s lives fast and hard in High Spirits and they drip with sincerity and integrity as each note speaks volumes about their love for this style. I am astounded at how catchy and powerful High Spirits is. In short I am blown away and these disks haven’t left my player since I received them. I can’t wait for them to deliver a full length album. I just hope they don’t lose touch with what makes these demos so special.” (Nocturnalcult.com)
