California’s TYRANT were formed in the late 70s, but their first demos came in 82. The band signed to Metal Blade in 83 and in 85 their debut album “Legions of the Dead” assaulted the most dedicated metalheads ears in North America, then spreading all over the globe, earning a solid fanbase in Europe. After 2 years of successful sales and live shows with other popular bands such as Slayer, Agent Steel, etc., the band records the follow-up album “Too Late to Pray” with more evident Doom influences contrasting with their prototype Power/Thrash sound they shaped in their debut album “Legions of the Dead”.
For a long time that this album was not released on CD in europe, so Blood & Iron decided to work directly with founder and Bass Player Greg May to deliver an expanded edition with rare bonus tracks taken from their first studio demo (recorded October 13th, 1982) and second studio recording in 1983, delivering the first version of “Battle of Armageddon” available originally on the world famous Metal Massacre compilation LP (volume III).
The graphic content was also carefully put together through 24 pages, with many rare photos, memorabilia pics and an extensive biography written by Greg himself with all the information that fans want to know.
