Ambush (Swedish metal from 83 - 86) Pre-Order

Ambush - Run Like Hell CD Pre-Order


Image
Ambush formed in Köping, Sweden in early 1983, and were active until 1985, after which they changed line up and reformed as Rampant.

The band released a 7" EP and cassette during their time as Ambush, the initial recordings featured on the EP are a killer and unique blend of mystic doomy heavy metal and folky 1970s rock which will appeal to fans of Pagan Altar, Witchfinder General, Ashbury, and Jethro Tull.

The band's sound gradually became refined to a Rainbow tinged brand of hard rock featuring some great organ sounds while retaining the excellent emotional vocals found on the EP.

This sound reaches it's apex in the Rampant recordings with tracks like Dreamers Boulevard and Feed Me Rock. Total hard rock magic!

Heavy Chains Records is very proud to present this compilation which includes:

Four Track 7" EP - Recorded in '83
Don't Turn Your Back on Ambush Cassette - Recorded in '85
Living Thing (unreleased track) - Recorded in '85
Rampant tracks from Hårdrock Compilation Cassette - Recorded in '86

Also included are liner notes outlining the band's history written by founding member and primary song writer Åke Cromnow.

Pre-order pack includes A3 Poster featuring some great photos from the old days of Ambush and Rampant, and an Ambush logo pin.

Buy or Die!!

Going by the info on the bandcamp page it seems to be on CD.

There's no coincident their EP is part of the banner collage of this forum. I'd say it's one of the most underrated olde Swedish Metal releases. Haven't listened to the tape albums for a while. I remember them being good but lacking the Ashbury/Jethro Tull vibes of the EP. Must revisit those asap - two thumbs up for this release!

Yeah the later stuff is more in the way of Rainbow styled hard rock, pretty different to the EP, but killer all the same.

Pre-orders on the Ambush CD end on thursday, all pre-orders will ship shortly after then!
If you want the poster and pin, act now!

@heavychains:

You should ask the band to get in contact with the Muskelrock organizers. They'd fit their bill perfectly and they'll have almost a year to get in shape :D
