About Time of Changes
30th anniversary edition
2015 saw the 35th anniversary of the band Blitzkrieg who came into existence in 1980.
Their debut single (on Neat records) was released in 1981, Buried Alive b/side Blitzkrieg’. It was not till 1985 that the band recorded their debut album as vocalist Brian Ross was involved with his other band, Satan recording and touring their debut classic’Court In The Act`
30 years on because of catalogue sale and resale ‘A Time Of Changes’ was lost in the vaults of corporate hell and may never see the light of day again. That said the current line up wanted this album available to fans so they completely re-recorded the album and added two bonus tracks ‘Too Wild To Tame’ which should have made back in 1985, but was originally written and recorded to be the bands second single back in 1981. It was eventually recorded by another Neat records stablemate , Avenger. The second bonus track ‘Jealous Love’ was was originally on the Unholy Trinity album but is included here played acoustically. All the classic tracks are here too on this album including many still played live today which included the Metallica covered ‘Blitzkrieg’ track . It also features guest twin guitar appearances on ‘Pull The Trigger’ by Satan’s Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey.
