When it comes to GARGOYLE from Portland, we’re talking about one of the best U.S. metal bands of all time. Their only album in 1988 is a pure masterpiece, a classic release that for many metal fans and collectors is the definition of heavy / power metal music, featuring songs that stood the test of time and are unmatched to this day.
It’s been a dream come true for us to make a deal with the band and being die hard fans of their music, we vowed to offer you the ultimate GARGOYLE edition including everything a fan would crave for.

So, in collaboration with Doug Smith, bass player extraordinaire and GARGOYLE, we are in the pleasant position to offer you GARGOYLE “The Deluxe Major Metal Edition”, with an entire disc of previously unreleased GARGOYLE songs, which are not just run of the mill stuff, but KILLER compositions that will destroy you. Stuff like “Crimson Red”, “An Eye For An Eye”, “Evil Hammer” etc would easily put to shame 90% of today’s releases and this is really impressive given that all those songs never made it to an official GARGOYLE release.

But the surprises do not end here. The 16 page booklet that accompanies the reissue, features an extensive band story written by Portland metal expert James R. Beach, featuring quotes by all band members and trivia that every GARGOYLE fan would love to know. Additionally, there’s a great feature of the first manager of the band William Howell, who tells us about the early years of the band and he also provides us with great old photos and memorabilia. In general the booklet is loaded with previously unseen photos, courtesy of Doug Smith and Gargoyle, Loren Bates of the mighty GLACIER, William Howell and Bart Gabriel.

The sound got its proper treatment by our “partners in crime”, VU Productions and all in all, what you’re going to receive is most likely the most important reissue of 2020 and definitely one of the top five reissues we ever made as a record label.

And an important note: Good things come to those who wait, so who knows? Additional surprises might find you when you reach the end of the bonus disc….

Release date: October 31, 2020.
