Artillery

Artillery were one of the top technical thrash bands of the eighties, characterized by intense, energetic riffing and the somewhat unique vocals of Flemming Ronsdorf. The band had achieved worldwide acclaim even before their first album, thanks to some well-distributed demos (since repackaged and re-released as Deadly Relics). The first album, Fear Tomorrow, was a slight letdown from those demos due to a substandard production, but the songs were on track. Terror Squad fared better, and is probably their best album overall. The band disbanded in 1991, shortly after the release of the By Inheritance album. They reunited in 1999, and released a comeback album, B.A.C.K., in 2001, with the unique vocals of Ronsdorf and thrash riffing that were trademarks of the band in their prime still intact. Since then they've been relatively quite but have now stated that recording for a new album will commence in March 2009.
