Acid Blade – Shooting Star

Jawbreaker Records are proud to announce the release of Acid Blade‘s Shooting Star EP on vinyl, cassette, CD, and digital formats.

Acid Blade is a powerful Heavy Metal outfit based in Dresden, Germany. After releasing their first demo independently in May 2021, Jawbreaker Records was responsible for the release of their debut album Power Dive in August 2022. The record was met with great reviews and a tour through Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Denmark and Sweden followed shortly after the release.

There was no time to lose however, as Acid Blade clearly live by the motto “Strike while the iron is hot”! In April 2023 it was time to enter the studio again – this time with Jonny Astus, original drummer for the previous band incarnation Angel Blade, back behind the drum kit. This change led to the band sounding even more energized and even though the EP harkens back to their NWOBHM-inspired roots, the result still sounds fresh and exciting.

Acid Blade‘s sound remains raw and honest and the EP features four distinctive songs, each offering a different facet of the band’s sound. From the rapid Mercy of the Wind, to the epic Rise from the Grave (clocking in at almost 8 minutes) and the catchy Shooting Star and Weeping Willow, this EP has something for everyone and is sure to please all fans of their former material.

Shooting Star will be out on Friday the 13th October, 2023.
