Around 1984 / 1985 an Italian Black / Thrash band called GHOSTRIDER released some demos and split-up shortly after. Out of their ashes NECRODEATH was born… Now, beginning of 2011, GHOSTRIDER have returned to the scene. 11 new studio songs, including revisited versions of their 1984 classics ‘The Exorcist’, ‘Curse Of Valle Christi’, ‘Doomed To Serve The Devil’, ‘Victims Of Necromancy’, as well as some brand new tracks and a cover of ONSLAUGHT’s classic ‘Power From Hell’ were recorded for their debut full length album "The Return Of The Ghost" which was just released through F.O.A.D. Records. Musically GHOSTRIDER is supposed to be for fans of VENOM, HELLHAMMER, early BATHORY, early SODOM, early KREATOR or early NECRODEATH. A promotional video can be watched here. For all further information go to February 06, 2011MASTER will be on a U.S. headlining tour next month, starting on March 01 in Fredrick, Maryland and coming to a close on April 03 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The band will be joined by Los Angeles Black Metallers Lightning Swords Of Death and Ohio Thrashers Mobile Deathcamp. Paul Speckmann commented the tour like this: "Looking forward to bringing MASTER Metal back to the USA and sharing a few new tracks from "The Human Machine" as well as playing the classics once again for you! MASTER guitarist Alex Nejezchleba and Peter Bajci from the Czech Republic will be joining me on the American trek. MASTER your own Destiny."
