Metal Blade to re-issue classical OMEN albums ‘Battle Cry’, ‘Warning of Danger’ and ‘The Curse’ on vinyl as part of their Originals-series as well as – for the first time ever – on Digi-CDs on February, 10th, 2017!

- 14/12/16 –

Unsung heroes in the World of Heavy Metal, OMEN are for sure beholders of the flame until this very day. Around for more than 30 years, still playing live and releasing albums, their debut album ‘Battle Cry‘ is one of the best pure heavy metal albums in the history of music! Fact!

The two follow-up albums ‘Warning Of Danger‘ and ‘The Curse‘ are fan-favorites as well, all released on Metal Blade Records between 1984 and 1986!

It’s about time for some proper re-issues, for the first time ever all three albums will be manufactured as Digi-CDs. ‘Battle Cry‘ and ‘Warning Of Danger‘ will feature bonus tracks, while ‘The Curse‘ will have the entire ‘Nightmares‘ EP (originally released in 1987) as a bonus! All three Digi-CDs will be available on Mid-Price and include 18-page poster booklets!

The vinyls are part of the Metal Blade Originals series that started in early 2016 with the re-issues of the SLAYER titles ‘Show No Mercy‘, ‘Hell Awaits‘, ‘Haunting The Chapel‘ and ‘Live Undead‘!

All three OMEN albums will be released with 400g heavy cardboard spine sleeves (inside out print), 60x60cm two-sided artwork posters and 250g inserts.
