scraperecords Announcements

Canadian “Trash-N-Roll” band REBEL PRIEST has set November 22 as the release date for R’lyeh Heavy, their first release with SCRAPE Records.

Recorded in early 2019, “R’lyeh Heavy” showcases the band’s diverse brand of Heavy Rock, combining elements of Classic Metal (“The Summoning”, “Emperor”); Biker Rock (“Electric Lady”); 80s Sleaze (“Hangman”, “Dead End World”), and even a dash of Reggae (“Lighten The Load”). Lyrical highlights include “Elm Street”, the Speed Metal-tinged tribute to Freddy Krueger, and “Snake Eyes” – an ode to gambling which would make Lemmy proud.

A video for “Electric Lady”, produced by R.D.Cane was released today.

Guitarist Benny Kemp comments: “It’s finally time to announce what we’ve been spending the better part of a year putting our hearts and insanity into – this is the culmination of all the sounds we love with all the topics that move us. This project couldn’t have happened without some of the most amazing people we have ever worked with, and we are forever grateful for the honesty and loyalty along the way!”

Pre-orders of the album are available today at in various formats, including CD (digipak), Limited Edition Vinyl (various color options) and merchandise bundles.

ASSAULT To Commemorative 35th Anniversary With Special Release

scraperecords Announcements

01 OCTOBER 2019 (VANCOUVER, BC) – Canadian speed metal pioneers ASSAULT have revealed plans to mark their 35th Anniversary with a special package to be released in late 2020 via SCRAPE Records.

Formed in 1985, ASSAULT gained cult-like status with their 1987 classic Survival In The Street. A second album Kill For Your Life was recorded circa “88/’89”, but ultimately the band dissolved and the album was shelved until 2018, when it finally received a proper release via independent Vancouver label SCRAPE Records.

To commemorate the band’s 35th Anniversary since formation in 1985, guitarist Jeff Zgaljic and singer Russell Dunaway are digging deep into the ASSAULT archives to bring together a special release, with more details to be announced soon.

Guitarist Jeff Zgaljic comments: “With so much renewed interest in ASSAULT since the release of ‘Kill For Your Life’, we thought it would make a great opportunity to celebrate the band’s 35th anniversary with a commemorative package. Exact details are still being finalized, but you expect some gems… fans of this band are in for a real treat!“

10 SEPTEMBER 2019 (VANCOUVER, BC) – Canadian Heavy Rock band REBEL PRIEST has signed on with the independent label SCRAPE Records for worldwide distribution of a new album, titled “R’lyeh Heavy”, to be released in the coming months.

REBEL PRIEST have been a driving force on Canada’s West Coast rock/metal scene since forming in 2015, winning BEST ROCK BAND in 2017 and 2018 at The Whammys – an independent awards ceremony held in Vancouver, BC.

REBEL PRIEST have stormed the coastal concert stages, headlining their own shows and supporting international acts Udo Dirkschneider (ACCEPT), LORDI, DIAMOND HEAD, Hank Von Hell, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM and THE LAZYS. They have become a regular fixture at Vancouver’s annual Bowie Ball, performing David Bowie covers for the benefit of The Canadian Cancer Society.

Combining NWOBHM with elements of Sleaze and Thrash, the REBEL PRIEST sound has been often described as Thrash n’ Roll. Frontman Jayme Black comments: “We’ve been called Thrash n Roll, or Thrash Rock, but we just call ourselves Rock n Roll. A hideously deformed creature of superhuman Rock n Roll.“

REBEL PRIEST’s most recent release, “Enabler” was issued independently in (2017).

Comments REBEL PRIEST on the signing: “We are extremely proud of this new record, and beyond excited to partner with SCRAPE Records for the upcoming release!”
