Anyone saw, heared, touched, felt the Attack (Ger) - Beastkiller
A lot about Attack is a mystery, and the info to be found on the web sometimes is contradictory... as there are several 'official sites' to be found, but most probably without direct participation of Attack mastermind Ricky himself?
Actually I never saw a copy of Beastkiller, and I tried desperatly to find it for years
and I never found anyone owning a copy as well, so years ago I finally came to the conclusion it does not exist and deleted it from my wantlist...
From what I later read in an interview in a german webzine with Ricky van Helden http://www.metal-almanac.com/pageID_5289250.html
Beastkiller was recorded 1987 in a studio in Wuppertal/Germany but was never released to his knowledge - as the owner of the studio disappeared with the tapes before this could happen...
Some tracks on Beastkiller should have been: The Warmachine, Beastkiller, Live or Die, Heroes die young and maybe more - at least the last two tracks were re-recorded and released on later releases
There is an 'official' attack website by Thomas "T.R.O.S." St. Jones who played keyboards and percussion on the very first demos and releases http://www.attackmetal.com/en/index.htm
and who claims to be in contact with Ricky here and there telling us that Ricky has gotten back the Master Tapes of Beastkiller, and there will be a re-Release of this Album soon. But that website hasn't been changed for years now, and some of the announced re-releases never happened till today... and the official myspace site http://www.myspace.com/attackofficialsite
does not tell us anything new as well...
So we will see if the Attack mysteries will be completly revealed in the future and continue to wait for the re-releases - as hope never dies
