The new AXEMASTER album "Crawling Chaos" on Pure Steel Records (Germany) has been released and is now available worldwide. For those who have not seen album information, "Crawling Chaos" features 10 tracks of a combination of traditional/thrash/doom metal with major label sound that shows the band's evolution by retaining a portion of the thrash feel of "Overture to Madness", while having an overall sound that pays respect to their traditional metal roots from the late 80's and early 90's. Early rave reviews worldwide have helped to affirm the general belief that the album has all the elements necessary to become the most successful and memorable Axemaster album to date.

Also, the first video from the album is now finished and available, it can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efzKaKP2RuA. Axemaster would like to thank the film company Creative Masters Unlimited for their hard work and professionalism in creating an exceptional video that is of more than suitable quality to be featured on ANY media outlet.

If any member of the media (radio/zine/tv) would be interested in receiving the video and/or the material from "Crawling Chaos" or the re-mastered Axemaster tracks from 1985-91 that were recently released on the collectable double album "Blessing in the Skies (and other cuts from the chamber)", please return this email with your request.

Pure Steel Records has issued an official release date for the new AXEMASTER album "Crawling Chaos". The CD will officially be available through the label on NOVEMBER 24th. Those of you in the US will be able to easily remember the date as this year, the 24th is black friday!

"Crawling Chaos" combines major label quality sound, killer artwork & graphics, and material that early reviews describe as some of the best Axemaster ever. While retaining a portion of the thrash feel of "Overture to Madness", the new songs show the band's evolution with a feel that goes back to their roots from the late 80's & early 90's. In that spirit, "Crawling Chaos" includes a new version of the classic Axemaster song from 1988: "Death Before Dishonor". Pre-orders for the disc begin November 10th on the Pure Steel website.

The new CD features the return of vocalist Geoff McGraw, lead guitarist Joe Sims, and bassist Jim Curtis; and is the Axemaster recording debut of lead guitarist Damin Bennett (making this the first time the band has had a dual axe attack), and drummer Denny Archer. Each musician has extensive experience in music and is a true professional, which is very evident and on full display on the new album!

What the critics are saying about "Crawling Chaos".........

=THE METAL MAG - It's pure Heavy as fuck and will get you back to the 80's heavy pounding sound with an edge of darkness swallowing your soul to obey the master. Ten tracks of pure guitar sounds and shreds with heavy pounding riffs and melodic yet deep vocals that captures the listener to slave him to pleasure.
=ROCK CABAL - Crawling Chaos is a 10 track, pure metal journey, with nostalgic riffs and chant filled vocals. Just straight horns in the air metal. Take the time to grab this album and sit back and be prepared to be transformed to a younger you.
=AEA ZINE - Their biting thrash crunch and classic flavor is still present but the open, untamed energy of their early days has given way to studious songwriting delivered with slow tempos and riffs written with forethought, showing more in common with Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Manowar.
=HARD ROCK HEAVY METAL - A great album by a band with long experience, respectful of the past but looking to the future.

While we still await the official release date for the new Axemaster CD "Crawling Chaos", we are excited to be able to share that Pure Steel Records has issued an official release date for the re-release of old Axemaster material on vinyl which will be titled "Blessing in the Skies (and other cuts from the chamber)". The record is scheduled to be out on October 6th as a collectable; a very limited number are being pressed. It will be a 2 record set including the entire "Blessing in the Skies" album, the entire "5 Demons" EP, and several other assorted songs (the entire track list is below). All of the material has been mastered by Robert Romagna and all the songs now sound MUCH better than they ever have. Overall, the record is a definite must for all metal vinyl collectors and Axemaster fans!

Once released, "Blessing" will be available on the Pure Steel website at
http://www.puresteel-records.com/, and afterward, once our copies arrive to us, a VERY limited number will be available through our webstore here.

Stay tuned as we will be sharing the release date for "Crawling Chaos" soon. The 2 releases are a great duo, highlighting some of the best of the old and some of the best of the new Axemaster!!!!!

Pure Steel Records' work on the graphics/packaging of both upcoming AXEMASTER albums, the final step prior to the physical records/CDs being printed, is moving forward toward completion. The album scheduled to be released first is the re-release of a collection of old Axemaster material on vinyl which will be put out as a collectable package (only 200 will initially be pressed). The label had all the songs under consideration for the record (a majority of the band's old material) professionally mastered which GREATLY IMPROVED the sound of all. The difference in the quality of the new versions compared to the originals is remarkable!!!

The re-release is the appetizer of this full meal of metal, the main course will be served shortly afterward in the form of the new Axemaster full length CD "Crawling Chaos"! All associated with the project believe that the combination of material and sound quality of "Crawling Chaos" will make it a landmark album for the band.

Metal desert will be served to all the fans who come out to see Axemaster live "Supporting Chaos"!!!!!!

We just uploaded all the music, artwork, photos, graphics, and info which will make up the "CRAWLING CHAOS" album to Pure Steel Records, so the new album is one step closer to being a reality!!!!! As soon as Pure Steel gives us a time frame for the CDs release and/or any more information about the upcoming re-release of older Axemaster material on vinyl, we will make the information available right away!

Along with information about the upcoming new AXEMASTER album "Crawling Chaos", there is other major news concerning the band. We are excited to announce that PURE STEEL RECORDS PLANS TO RELEASE A COLLECTION OF OLD AXEMASTER MATERIAL ON VINYL. There are very few details available yet (such as the title and which songs will be included), but we do know that Pure Steel has already had most of the band's old material mastered and everything sounds much better than it ever has. We expect to be receiving much more information soon, so we hope that you will watch for more details.

We are almost finished with all the studio work on the new upcoming AXEMASTER album "Crawling Chaos". Just a little more mixing and mastering work over the next couple weeks and we will be getting the finished masters to Pure Steel Records!!! "Crawling Chaos" will include 10 tracks that we're confident will be seen as classic Axemaster that goes back to the band's metal roots, and will feature sound that we consider to be major label quality. It will be an album that ANY true metal fan definitely needs to check out!!!!!
