Jawbreaker Records are proud to announce the upcoming release of The Gangland Tapes, a compilation tape featuring the whole discography of Löanshark from Spain.
Löanshark is a traditional Heavy Metal power trio from Barcelona, Spain, whose objective is to recover the glory of the bands that played the purest and most classic Heavy Metal in the first half of the 80s. To find its own sound, Löanshark is also inspired by classic speed metal, hard rock and blues. The aim of their songs is to transmit energy and badassism based on electric riffs and structures that encourage headbanging and the desire to sing along with the band’s contagious choruses.
Formed in 2011 by guitarist, singer, and main songwriter Lögan Heads, Löanshark was born from a desire to develop a more classic sound that was rejected by Heads’ previous, more speed metal oriented band Crimson Storm. In 2016, Lögan moved to Barcelona and recruited bassist Aless, with whom he began shaping the band’s sound. Together, they found drummer Ángel, completing the power trio lineup.
In early 2018, Löanshark recorded their first EP, The Warning Sessions, which received a positive reception from the local and national underground scene. The band’s live performances and subsequent singles, Midnight Shooter/Red Light Blues and Fast, Heavy, Loud ‘N’ Proud helped them gain a dedicated following.
The Gangland Tapes is a compilation of the band’s entire discography so far, consisting of 8 songs of top grade heavy/speed metal that encompasses elements of traditional heavy metal and the recent “New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal” (NWOTHM) movement, and it is a powerful statement of Löanshark‘s determination and passion for the genre. The Gangland Tapes will be out on Jawbreaker Records on 24 February 2023.
Jawbreaker Records are proud to announce the upcoming release of the highly-anticipated self-titled debut album from Goatfyre.
Goatfyre formed in Gothenburg, Sweden 2019 with the intention of creating a sound that blends the raw energy of punk with the heavy riffs of metal. The result – dubbed Slaying Metal Punk – is a force to be reckoned with, especially the aggressive and commanding vocals delivered by frontwoman Åse.
The band’s self-titled debut album is a 11-track powerhouse that showcases their powerful sound at its best. From the opening track, “Riders In Black”, to the closing double-track, “Goat” / “Fyre”, Goatfyre’s debut album is a relentless assault on the senses. With its raw energy, heavy riffs, and in-your-face vocals, the album is sure to appeal to fans of all things heavy and punk.
Jawbreaker Records are excited to release Goatfyre’s debut album on cassette, a format that perfectly captures the band’s raw and unpolished sound. The cassette release is limited to 150 copies, so be sure to grab your copy before they’re gone.
Today, Friday the 13th 2023, is the release of Acid Blade – Power Dive on vinyl LP. 8 songs of old school Heavy Metal in the proper style.
Unfortunately the Aquilla LPs which were also supposed to be released today are still delayed, which means that all that of you that have ordered both of these LPs will have to wait just a bit longer before your order can ship. There have been some problems from the side of the pressing plant, but hopefully it should only be a matter of days or weeks by now. We will let you know more as soon as we know ourselves, thanks for your patience.
Onyx was a short-lived but highly influential Swedish heavy metal band active in the early 80s. Onyx had a sound that remains quite unique still to this day, with short but extremely well-written songs, and they were also one of the first metal bands in Sweden to pen lyrics in their native tongue.
The new tape release from Jawbreaker Records contains all four tracks from the 1982 single as well as another four songs from the 1983 demo. The original Onyx single is today a highly sought after collector’s item and these songs have never before been published on cassette. The 1983 demo tape is even harder to find as not many were made. After said demo failed to attract the attention of any record label, the band unfortunately faded into obscurity and never recorded any more material.
Limited to 100 copies on Ruby Red tape and 200 copies on Ivory White tape.
