BYFIST, the Texas-based band featuring members of REVEREND, have finally had their new album, "Preserving the Past: The Collection", released in Europe via Germany's Rock It Up Records. The effort was remastered by 9250AV (formerly Cyberella) for the now-defunct MetalAges Records and contains three previously released EPs combined into one full-length CD.
To purchase your copy, go to RockItUp.org.
According to a press release, BYFIST shunned the glam metal scene by delivering a raw, no-fluff, and no-frills metal in the vein of early JUDAS PRIEST. Over the years the band released more EPs, including "You Should Have Known" (1988) and "Adrenalin" (1989). "Adrenalin", produced by David Wayne (METAL CHURCH, REVEREND), was originally recorded at Silver Cloud Studios in California with Joe Floyd of WARRIOR.
Critics have compared BYFIST to the likes of ARMORED SAINT, early ANTHRAX and METAL CHURCH, among many other historic thrash metal bands.
BYFIST had the opportunity to tour with bands such as MSG, FATES WARNING, MANOWAR, FRANK MARINO, SAVATAGE, and TROUBLE.
