PRESS RELEASE

Roxx Records is ready to bring you two remastered vinyl editions from one of Christian Metal’s most iconic artists… Sacred Warrior.

Over two years ago we brought you a very Limited Edition vinyl pressing of Master’s Command which is now long sold out. Today we continue on with this vinyl series, and this time we bring you the debut album ‘Rebellion’ and the bands third release ‘Wicked Generation’ both of which have been remastered specifically for these vinyl releases and will contain only those original tracks.

Packaged with upgraded artwork and brand new inserts with full lyrics and liner notes. These are both pressed on 180g black vinyl and look spectacular. Each pressing is limited to only 150 copies each and both of these are a part of our Roxx 100 Series vinyl pressings so we do not expect these to last long!

The first 100 copies sold of these two releases will also receive a very limited edition Sacred Warrior poster each hand numbered 1 to 100. These will be distributed as the vinyl sales, and they are limited to a total of 100 only based on the combined sales of both albums. If you buy one of each album and you are in the first 100 copies sold you will get TWO posters.

Even better yet these have a release date of January 14th, 2022. That’s right in just two weeks! Pre orders will launch exclusively at the Roxx Records website on January 1st and will begin shipping early next week!

Again we don’t think these are going to last long so don’t hesitate on these. Kick off the new year right with these two beautiful vinyl pressings.


ABOUT THE ALBUM

Sacred Warrior’s 1990 Wicked Generation is an album with a much darker vibe than previous masterpieces – one which would stir mixed reactions from the fan base. Wicked Generation, while controversial for its darker remains an essential part of the Sacred Warrior story. Certainly, it is the most conceptual album of the four, with many similarities to Operation Mindcrime, but with a positive message. Wicked Generation was the “ministry” album made to reach the those lost and broken - the destitute, depraved and forgotten. Dealing with issues such as child abuse, suicide, dabbling in the demonic and sin in general, these songs have a heavy vibe for sure. If you weren’t a Christian back in the 90’s, this is the album most likely to make you curious about God. The dark subject matter was accompanied by Parra’s haunting vocal delivery, Swift’s frenetic and progressive guitar heroics, and Velasquez’s percussive snare and tom attacks nicely conveying a sense of battle. The music and the lyrics come together to hammer home a thunderous, sobering metallic attack like the metal world had never experienced, especially in the Christian scene. The 2022 Roxx Records LP reissue is the first time this one has been released on vinyl in the US, and features a full color lyric insert, band photos, and more! It also features a fresh 2022 remaster by Rob Colwell and has never, ever sounded better, especially on this amazingly shiny 180 gram black LP version. This is one of Christian metal’s most definitive albums, and this very very limited vinyl version will sell quickly.

For fans of Iron Maiden, Queensryche, and Crimson Glory!
