ZT once again alight with Dying Victims Productions to present a new track from Bunker 66’s highly anticipated fourth album, Beyond The Help Of Prayers, released 30th April on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Since 2007, Italy’s Bunker 66 have been proudly (and prolifically) flying the flag of ‘80s metalpunk, all in the beloved power-trio format. The joint influence of Motörhead and Venom looms large, but so do homeland heroes Bulldozer, the UK’s Warfare, early Running Wild, Bathory and Slayer along with later Anti-Cimex and metal-era Gang Green, and of course any ‘80s recordings from Discharge and Exciter. With this robust and rust-covered foundation, Bunker 66 recorded a trio of cult albums for High Roller Records as well as a splits with the likes of Italy’s Barbarian and Morbo, Brazil’s Whipstriker, and most recently Scotland’s Vuil. This is a cult band for cult fanatics!
Beyond The Help Of Prayers is the band’s first full-length in four years and second with the lineup of co-founders vocalist/bassist Damien Thorne and drummer Dee Dee Altar alongside ex-Schizo guitarist J.J. Priestkiller, While it could be said that Beyond The Help Of Prayers is business as usual for the band, the album sees Bunker 66 taking on more epic touches while still firmly fused within their realms of darkness, and while they’re undoubtedly dirtier and more blasphemous than ever, the band arguably receive their best-sounding production, which maximizes their undeniable power.
Bunker 66 are for sure Beyond the Help of Prayers!
The album is available as:
Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, postcard and download code.
Special edition on white vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, postcard download code and patch.
