Metal Mind Productions will release the debut album from ZNOWHITE, entitled "All Hail to Thee", on CD on August 6 in Europe (September 3 in the U.S. via MVD). The release will be expanded with bonus tracks from the "Kick 'Em When They're Down" EP and the "Live Suicide" live album. The CD will be made available in a new digipack edition on golden disc, digitally remastered using 24-bit technology and limited to a hand-numbered 2,000 copies.
Formed in 1982 in Chicago, Illinois by three relatives (Ian Tafoya on guitar, his brother Sparks on bass and cousin Nicky on drums),the group released its first demo in 1983. The tape impressed Brian Slagel of Metal Blade, who added the song "Hellbent" to the world-famous "Metal Massacre" compilation. Being featured on the LP next to TYRANT, BITCH, VIRGIN STEELE, WARLORD and SLAYER gave the band definite recognition and helped them to sign a record contract.
