On “Penalty By Perception”, Artillery focus on 80s-sounds (much more so than on its predecessor “Legions” from 2013)!(Ronny Bittner, Rock Hard Germany)

For me, this is the best Artillery album so far. Thrash bands with proper (considering the classic metal template) singers are few and far between, after all!(Matthias Weckmann, Metal Hammer Germany)

Hardly any other band is able to blend savage, driving and pumping thrash beats with speed elements and traditional metal melodies to catchy, ballbreaking songs. A strong record through and through!(Andreas Stappert, Deaf Forever Germany)

Certainly, old and new fan alike are excited about new album, “Penalty By Perception“, where they’ll have 11 tracks to learn. Written over the course of the last two years, ARTILLERY‘s seventh full-length draws from classic albums like ‘Fear of Tomorrow‘ and ‘By Inheritance‘ as well as ‘When Death Comes‘ and ‘Legions‘. “It’s an ARTILLERY album that’s both familiar yet modern in its attack. “Penalty By Perception” has the typical ARTILLERY riffing, with powerful drumming and melodic singing,” asserts guitarist Michael Stützer. “It’s full of catchy hook-lines. We also wanted the sound to be a bit heavier and more powerful than on ‘Legions’.

Thanks to producer Søren Andersen and Medley Studios, ARTILLERY got the sound they were looking for. “We worked really hard together to get this amazing sound. I feel the band have come up with some great songs. The best musical performance in the history of Artillery. Can’t wait to hear the fans’ reaction!
